There’s no doubt that injectables like fillers and Botox® are the most effective line-reducing treatments available. Others might help to some extent but they will never achieve what injectables can. Furthermore, these treatments, in the right hands, are very safe and almost painless. The proof is in the sheer number of people who have been treated worldwide! Allergan reports that, as a brand leader in the field of dermal fillers, they recently achieved a major milestone for their key brand Juvéderm with ‘100 million syringes of their product delivered globally’. Isn’t that incredible?

So, Why Isn’t Everyone Choosing Injectables?!

Some of you might be reluctant to try injectables for various reasons. You might feel scared about ‘losing’ your expressions or you’re worried that you won’t look natural and that others will know you’ve visited a clinic… or are you just scared in general?

Rest assured, safety is my top priority when treating my patients. I like to see myself and my team as ‘gatekeepers’.

Gatekeepers, like us, keep you safe and won’t recommend a treatment that’s not in your best interest, so there’s no danger of you looking ‘overdone’. If a treatment isn’t right for you, we’ll say so! It’s not just about the look though, we also make sure that you’re in the right headspace. The only reason to undergo any of our procedures is because you want to. Don’t ever forget that! Accountable to our registered bodies (the GDC and HIS), we have to act within clear clinical and safety guidelines or risk getting struck off. 

How Do You Know Which Clinic To Choose?

In order to be a gatekeeper, you must be properly trained. I have a Level 7 postgraduate OFQUAL qualification in injectables and I’ve been a dentist for years! What’s more, at No. 4, we have fantastic knowledge and experience – Su and I have over 60 years of clinical experience combined (we know, we don’t look old enough)!

The most important thing when choosing your clinic is to make sure the practitioners are fully qualified. The experience never hurts too though!

What To Expect From Gatekeepers

You should always expect the best

Good gatekeepers will always give you all your options and give you time to make your decision as to whether to have treatment or not. We’re not saleswomen, we’re beauty practitioners! We will always conduct a thorough consultation and get to know you first. If injectables don’t suit your medical profile, lifestyle or expectations, we will let you know. After all, we don’t just deal with treatments, we deal with people. 

It’s also important that you know you will receive good aftercare. You shouldn’t have your treatment and get kicked straight out of the door! You need to know how to best maintain your results. We’re always on hand to offer advice on which products will suit your skin and my team always want to ensure that you’re happy with your results. In short, you won’t get away from us that quickly…

Ready To Take The First Step?

If you want to get rid of lines and wrinkles, injectables are the best way to do so, but only when you’re being treated by experienced, caring professionals.

“I highly recommend Nicola and her lovely clinic. I went to get mole removal off my face and felt in good professional hands. Everything was explained to me in great detail about the procedure and after care advice to follow. I felt very relaxed during the procedure, didn’t find it painful and left with a big smile. Thank you so much”

“Hi Nichola, I don’t know if you remember but I had tear trough treatment back in November. I just wanted to say a huge thank you! I was initially fairly pleased with the results but now am delighted! The darkness has all but gone even without make-up. I am so much more confident than before.”


“My wrinkled lined face caused me great distress for many years! An opportunity arose to attend an open day with Dr Nichola Maasdorp. I was introduced to different treatments to reduce these lines. Following treatment my lines are smoother and I am very pleased with the results.
I would recommend facial enhancement treatment with Dr Nichola Maasdorp.”
