A Nottingham aesthetic clinic is celebrating its tenth anniversary with the opening of a brand new £500,000 facility in West Bridgford.

Medical Cosmetics, which from the New Year will be the only cosmetics clinic in Nottingham to offer IV drip therapy, has opened its new premises in Compton Acres shopping centre, West Bridgford.

The business, which began with managing director Dr Asher Siddiqi performing procedures on his own at Fitness First in Castle Marina, now employs three members of staff.

Dr Siddiqi, known as the “lip man of Nottingham”, said: “It has been a fantastic ten years at Medical Cosmetics and I am delighted with the new facility we have found.

“It was a bit of a struggle at first, starting in a room at Fitness First in Castle Marina whilst working as a GP, but I have always had an interest in dermatology and was adamant to make it work. I wanted a cosmetic clinic that not only focused on aesthetics but also the health of our clients.”

The new clinic will offer IntraVita IV Nutrition therapy. By replacing nutrition levels through IV infusions, a person’s body can be restored to its peak fitness and maximum energy performance.

Clinic manager Denise Baird, added: “Asher is known as ‘the lip man of Nottingham’, he doesn’t like to mention it, but other practitioners around Nottingham know him as just that. A girl can come in looking for bigger lips and he creates a masterpiece, his work is beautiful.”

Dr Siddiqi said: “It is a fantastic way to finish 2015 and a decade in business, we’re all delighted with the new facility and are even talking about the possibility of opening another in the near future with Derby the possible destination in mind.”
