Dr Sebagh: Great British Brand 2023
‘We’re excited to have purchased Chandos House, an historic 18th century building in London, which will be home to both the skincare company and the new clinic. Our team of architects and builders worked with English Heritage, the Georgian Society and Westminster Council, to source the perfect suppliers for the renovation. Education has always been important to us, and we will continue to build on this, hosting more events about the science behind skincare ingredients, for example. Melissa [John, co-owner] and I are always looking to the future and new techniques. The PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) ‘Vampire Facelift’ is famous, but I have begun performing a more sophisticated version called PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) which transforms plasma into a natural biofiller that offers more vascular growth.
‘When I started my career, clients in their 40s were worried about ageing but now 18- to 20-year-olds want “beautification”, which is not always healthy. This young generation is hooked on tweaking their faces and I prefer to promote natural bio-fillers as a non-harmful way to do it. Last year too, people were used to staying at home and nervous about being around others in the clinic. International clients who couldn’t visit tried local treatments, with mixed results. The market is so diluted now, with many non-professionals offering treatments. TikTok and Instagram are a concern: the UK has no regulations so someone who perhaps worked as an accountant can take an online course and supposedly administer Botox, fillers, and use lasers. We’re fortunate in that, by remaining a small yet internationally renowned company, we don’t have pressure from investors to constantly increase turnover or to launch new products before we’re ready. Instead, we’re able to focus on achieving excellence in research and development, and doing the best for our patients and customers.’ Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh
