tick resultsQuinn Clinics is celebrating a successful inspection by the CQC (Care Quality Commission) – the first of its kind in the UK.

Dr John Quinn says:

“We are the first independent medical cosmetic clinic in England to have completed our Engagement and Support call with the Care, Quality, Commission (CQC)

“The assessment covers four areas:

  • Safe care and treatment
  • Staffing arrangements
  • Protection from abuse
  • Assurance processes, monitoring and risk management

“We have been CQC registered since 2011. Not everything that we do falls under the scope of registration but our practice has been inspected on multiple occasions and is regulated. We are rated as ‘good’.

“This may not sound like a big deal but it takes a phenomenal amount of investment as well as constant work, mainly carried out by our amazing registered manager, Sharon Claridge

“We are proudly, a medical clinic.

“We may be open but it is certainly not ‘business as usual’ and won’t be for quite some time to come. Our first priority is the safety of our patients and of our staff.”

The Engagement and support call took place on 9th June 2020 and was carried out within the COVID-19 Emergency Support Framework in order to assess that Quinn Clinics is properly managing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic at its clinic, based at The May Wellness Centre in Bristol.

The full CQC report demonstrates that Quinn clinics had fully prepared for reopening. The CQC report summarises:

“The provider informed CQC that they had suspended provision of all activities on 18 March 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. CQC were notified of plans to recommence services from June 2020, initially with a limited range of activities. We sought assurances that the service would be able to comply with all current best practice guidance, including in relation to: –

  • infection, prevention and control measures.
  • supporting staff who are unable to work due to illness/self-isolation or caring responsibilities
  • updated action plans to address any existing breaches
  • all required equipment being compliant with required testing.

“We reviewed the assurances provided and completed an Emergency Support Framework engagement and support call on 09 June 2020. This covered the four assessment areas detailed above. We concluded from our assessment call that the provider was managing and no further support was required.

“We noted an area of innovative practice that may be shared with others: –

“The provider had produced guidance for clients including written summary and a ‘walk through’ video of what to expect before and during attendance at an appointment during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Ultherapy-Filler-Results.jpg?fit=670%2C670&ssl=1
09/Aug/2020

Dr John Quinn has shared a new video which shows the results of combining two advanced anti-ageing treatments. 

  • Ultherapy ultrasound treatment – a non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedure which works to stimulate the body’s natural healing and cell repair processes. Focused ultrasound waves can target the structural layers of skin to boost the production of collagen within the skin, resulting in a toning, tightening and lifting effect which rejuvenates the facial features.
  • Dermal fillers – a popular treatment used to replenish lost volume. Advanced use of dermal fillers is not just about smoothing wrinkles and boosting volume, but using the product carefully in a structural way to provide a ‘lift’ to the face in what is known as a Non-Surgical Face Lift

The resulting video shows in 3D the before and after results from a variety of angles, displaying:

  • Visible reduction in lines and wrinkles, leaving smoother skin especially:
    • Cheeks
    • Eyes
    • Forehead
    • Neck
  • Facial tissues ‘lifted’ to a more youthful position:
    • Tighter jawline with more definition
    • Eyes are brighter and more open
    • Mouth area is more uplifted
  • The overall face looks revitalised and healthy

These 2 procedures working in harmony have created an exceptional anti-ageing result. The finished result is far better than could have been achieved with any single procedure.

At Quinn Clinics, treatment plans often combine a number of approaches for best results. The exact combination is recommended based on the individual client’s skin condition as well as a full understanding of what they’re trying to achieve. That’s why the consultation is the most important first step in the process.

Quinn-Clinics-Tour.jpg?fit=400%2C400&ssl=1
09/Aug/2020

Founder Dr John Quinn introduces a video tour of Quinn Clinics Bristol in our latest video, which was filmed just prior to lockdown.

John introduces the video, saying:

“So I thought today I would just bring you on a really brief tour of the whole clinic, so you can have a look and see what to expect when you come for your first appointment to see it. So come on in! “

He explains how the building was carefully renovated before opening with state of the art facilities in 2018:

“…the first part of the building you’re gonna see is this this is the hallway and and the clinic used to be a school, actually it was a music school.

“…it’s an Edwardian building and we really tried to be quite sympathetic when we were doing the renovations; and you can see that green is definitely a color that and it’s very close to the Quinn clinics heart maybe it’s a little because I’m Irish!”

During this short video, clients can see inside the state of the art skin, body and health treatment clinic.

Welcome Room

“So this is our welcome room and this is the first place that you’re gonna hang out when you when you come to see us. Lots of comfy sofas, not anyway intimidating, we have a nice coffee machine in the corner. So this is where your journey begins when you first come to see us.”

Ground floor treatment room with 3D photography

“This is kind of where I hang out most of the time and this is the first treatment room you’ll visit when you come to see us at the clinic. This is where your consultation with me will happen. It’s where we’ll take your 3D photographs and yes, certainly if you become a regular patient, this is a room that you’ll get quite used to seeing.”

Aesthetic therapist treatments

“This room is mainly used by our lovely aesthetic therapists for laser hair removal and for skin rejuvenation treatments. This is our Lumenis Lightsheer Desire diode laser and this room is a really busy room. It’s used constantly all day every day.”

CoolSculpting / fat freezing

“…if you follow us on social media regularly, you’ll know that we have a unique body contouring offering to the South West of the UK and CoolSculpting is very much the centre of that.”

Medical facial room with advanced treatment technology

“This is where our patients come to get their skin in tip-top condition and we have a number of devices that we use.

“We have the Geneo, which is a combination of microdermabrasion with radiofrequency.

“We have the world-famous HydraFacial and we have the BTL Exilis which is a monopolar radiofrequency. This is the device that we use to lift to tighten and stimulate collagen.

“So we typically will combine these treatments to get each individual patient the best results, depending on what they’re after.”

Holistic health and wellbeing

“One of the things I decided to focus on more deliberately when we moved into the new clinic was to look after people’s holistic health; people’s psychological well-being.

“So we have a room dedicated to psychotherapy and it’s used by a clinical psychologist, it’s used by addictions counselor, a cognitive behavioral therapist and we also have a dietician that works here.”

Gym and personal training

“So this is our gym and this is our personal training studio and as you can see it’s set up really with all the weights that you could ever need.

“It’s also big enough for us to run small group yoga and Pilates classes.”

Unique holistic health clinic

Dr Quinn explains the holistic health philosophy that is so unique to the Quinn Clinics:

“…it’s not just about having a quick fix, it’s about working out, seeing a dietician, even potentially having some psychotherapy if that’s something that might be helpful for you, as well as having CoolSculpting.

“As well as having lots of treatments that we have available for the face that can make you look better, we want you to feel better as well.”

Quinntessential Collection Skin Care

Quinn Clinics has launched an online shop, selling its own exclusive high performance anti-ageing range of products – Signature Skin Care.

The new online shop means that clients can access fabulous premium skin products to help them maintain good skin care at home – which can be quite a challenge in these times of lockdown, furlough or social distancing.

The shop will initially be carrying Quinn Clinics’ Signature Skin Care range, which comprises:

  1. REVEAL Glycolic Wash Daily Cleanser
    • Contains the natural clinically proven AHAs, glycolic and citric acid to gently remove the build-up of dead skin cells together with salicylic acid to remove impurities and excess oil.
    • £39.99
    • ADD TO BASKET
  2. C-10 Professional Strength Vitamin C Serum
    • Our advanced signature C-10 serum uses scientific and evidence based formulas, offering daily antioxidant protection.
    • £49.99
    • ADD TO BASKET
  3. PROTECT Daily Tinted Broad Spectrum Sun Protection SPF50
    • A highly effective photo-stable broad spectrum, lightweight physical sunscreen.
    • £34.99
    • ADD TO BASKET
  4. R+ – 1% Liposomal Retinol Serum
    • A powerful and highly effective serum containing one per cent liposomal retinol, a stabilised vitamin A derivative which has been clinically proven to increase cell turnover.
    • £59.99
    • ADD TO BASKET

The products are available individually, or can be purchased as a 4-piece collection for the price of £149.97. This means that when you buy the cleanser, vitamin C and retinol serum, you’ll essentially receive the SPF50 ‘free’ – a saving £34.99 compared to buying them separately.

Online Shop

Signature Skin Care Range

Dr John Quinn explains the background to the development of the Signature Skin Care range:

dr john quinn bristol skin“There is a lot of nonsense surrounding skincare. With so many ingredients and products on the market, it can be difficult as a consumer to know what is worth doing and what is actually a waste of time.

“I am a medical doctor with over 20 years of clinical experience. I have the grey hairs to show for it! My journey into cosmetic medicine started 15 years ago, when it was hardly a “speciality” at all. Nowadays it encompasses a spectrum of injectable, laser and energy based treatments. The influence of regenerative medicine is increasing, as well as crossovers with other medical specialties, such as gynaecology and endocrinology.

“Of utmost importance to me, has always been to make sure that everything that I offer:

  1. Is well studied and safe
  2. Works

“So when it came to developing my own range of skincare, it was clear to me that I needed to keep things evidence based and straightforward. It was for this reason that the Quinn Clinics skincare range was born!”

5-year-dermal-filler-results.jpg?fit=750%2C375&ssl=1
09/Aug/2020

5 Year Before & After Photos

Getting Anti-Ageing ‘Just Right’

Dr John Quinn has nicknamed it the ‘Goldilocks Approach’ to dermal fillers and these fabulous results show the benefit of getting it ‘just right’. 

The Goldilocks Approach is about ‘not too little and never too much’ in terms of dermal fillers, maintaining regular treatment that is subtle yet effective.

After 5 years, we would normally expect to see noticeable signs of ageing, yet thanks to regular and careful treatments, this patient actually looks fresher and more lifted than before she began treatment back in 2015.

5 years of fillers

  • Note the reduction in nose to mouth lines

5 year dermal filler results

  • The cheeks are less hollow and more youthful

long term dermal filler results

  • The overall face looks lifted, fresh and healthy.

Advanced Dermal Fillers For A Natural Look

The results illustrate that regular dermal fillers don’t have to be obvious, but can have a significant impact in the long term in restoring a more youthful appearance which looks natural and flattering, not in any way fake.

Sophisticated use of dermal fillers is not about troubleshooting specific lines or wrinkles, but more about looking at the face as a whole. In these cases, dermal fillers can be of more ‘structural’ benefit, lifting the skin tissues at a precise series of points to produce a beautiful result:

Dr Quinn explains:

“These photos are taken with our Canfield Vectra 3D camera. Our patient is wearing some makeup but there are no tricks of lighting or of angles here. Your journey with us will include regular reproducible photos to demonstrate that what we do works. Our experience is that every patient having regular treatment, looks better year on year.

“Quinn Clinics hi-tech 3D camera enables unparalleled visibility of the facial structure from every possible angle, not only making for a detailed consultation but also facilitating long-term measurement of the results of treatment.”

Seeing the progress over time is very rewarding both for the doctor and the patient. Baseline 3D imaging is a standard part of the initial consultation and regular photography is part of the process, tracking the changes and improvements made.

The 3D camera is available exclusively in Quinn Clinics’ Bristol skin clinic in Redland.

quinntessential loyalty card

Putting the ‘Treats’ into Skin Treatments!

Further to the launch of the Quinntessential Membership Scheme, Quinn Clinics has introduced the Quinntessential Loyalty Card to enable clients who have occasional or ad hoc treatments to build up rewards.

The Quinntessential Loyalty Card is ideal for those patients who come for occasional treatments (like dermal fillers), have short courses of treatment (like body contouring) or those who like to try different options rather than repeating the same thing (like our advanced skin technology).

Our new loyalty card means that you’ll earn 10% credit for everything you spend, which can then be put towards any of our medical facial treatments, including:

So if you spend £100, you’ll get £10 off. If you spend £500 you’ll get £50 off. There’s no limit, so if you build enough, you’ll be able to claim a free facial.

The card works on a yearly basis, but when it expires, you can just get a new one and start again!

The Quinntessential Loyalty Card is unique to Quinn Clinics in Bristol.
