Picture of Dr Clara Russell

Born in Edinburgh and Medically trained in Newcastle Upon Tyne, I have been a GP since 2007 and have worked in the area of aesthetics since 2009. I have attended regular training on Harley Street and with Allergan who make ‘Botox’ and ‘Juvederm’. To further my training I decided to undertake Post Graduate training with Barts and The London Hospital and attained the Post Graduate Certificate with Distinction in Non Invasive Aesthetics. I have also trained with one of Florida’s leading cosmetic dermatologist in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

I am passionate about everything relating to skin, beauty and ways to help men and women look and feel better about their appearance.

I am realistic about treatments and results and ensure that my clients understand the products I use and the outcomes I can achieve with them.

Dr Clara Russell – Founder of Shape & Rejuvenate

From my work as a GP, I understand the importance of taking a holistic approach to health, beauty and wellbeing and believe that aesthetic face and body treatments can have an important role in this.

I am professional, honest, skilled and educated in the area of aesthetics and would be delighted to answer any queries you have by email or in person at my clinic at ‘FitnessChicks’or ‘Medicalternative‘.

My Philosophy

A self confessed beauty product junkie with a weakness for fashion and beauty magazines, I enjoy keeping up with current trends as well as research, developments and current thinking in the arenas of facial aesthetics and body contouring. In an area of so much change and minimal regulation, I believe it is essential you feel comfortable with your aesthetic practitioner and seek treatment with a fully qualified professional.
