Located on the famous Harley Street in the centre of London is one of the capital’s finest aesthetic clinics. In fact, it has been recognised in this month’s issue of Global Health and Pharma magazine as being one of London’s Leading Aesthetic Clinics, 2020. It is Trikwan Aesthetics, a doctor-led medical aesthetics clinic that specialises in non-surgical aesthetics treatments, fat dissolving, and cosmetic skincare.
Founded and run by husband-and-wife duo Dr Sanjay Trikha and Dr Zoya Diwan, Trikwan Aesthetics is the perfect example of how to run a clinic that addresses the wealth of misconceptions, misinformation, and rogue practitioners within the field of aesthetics. Unfortunately, due to a lack of proper regulations, it has become incredibly difficult for patients to truly understand how to find a good practitioner and clinic, let alone one that will handle these delicate treatments with the finesse and care they demand. Both Dr Sanjay and Dr Zoya specialise in these delicate treatments, including non-surgical facelifts, tear trough undereye rejuvenations, facial sculpting and contouring, lip work, cheek work, jawline work, and natural look aesthetics. Trikwan Aesthetics is a shining example of what incredible wonders these treatments can do, rather than another horror story of a botched job.
Together, this husband-and-wife team have reached the pinnacle of the industry, coming from a background of working as hospital doctors within the NHS. Academically, the credentials of both doctors are flawless. Having both met and worked at St Bartholomew’s Hospital and the London School of Medicine, they bring a wealth of knowledge, insight, and expertise to their roles. Dr Zoya also boasts a First-Class degree from Kings University in Anatomy and Human Sciences, whilst Dr Sanjay brings a First Class degree from Imperial College London in Management. Both doctors completed their NHS foundation training in London hospitals across a variety of disciplines, prior to specialising in Medical Aesthetics. Dr Zoya has a special interest in dermatology and continues to work within the NHS.
Alongside establishing the award-winning aesthetic clinic, the dynamic duo also founded the Academic Aesthetics Mastermind Group. This group consists of some of the most highly acclaimed doctors within the UK working together on growing the industry through research. Recently, the pair were first and second authors in a global publication in the Journal of Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery for their extraordinary research on under eye treatments and are pioneering best practice within the industry.
Now focused on Trikwan Aesthetics, Dr Zoya and Dr Sanjay have created it to be a specialist clinic for natural looking results. Many of the patients walking through the door are first time patients who are terrified of anything going wrong, and are looking for subtle, yet natural, looking results. Within the industry, the motto is generally, “If you can tell someone has had a lot of work done, it hasn’t been done very well.” The secret to an amazing treatment is one that no one knows you’ve had done, and that is the mantra by which the team at Trikwan Aesthetics live and work. Prior to any work being done, there is a thorough consultation to ensure the staff fully understand exactly what the patient is looking to achieve, based on what issues they have.
In order to ensure that there is absolute transparency between all the involved parties, there is also a psychological analysis undertaken, to ensure that the patient is ready to receive a treatment too. Changing anything about an appearance is always a big deal, and decisions should never be taken lightly. Due to the nature of the work also, discretion is key. Patients want that natural look that is sometimes subtle, and discretion affords them the peace of mind that it does not need to be public knowledge that they have had treatments done, if they so wish.
Underpinning everything, including the company culture at Trikwan Aesthetics, is patience and quality, driven through improving education. Believing that they are the best at what they do is one thing for the team at the clinic, but educating the public also helps them to make better decisions regarding the way they look and their dermatological choices. Everyone uses different techniques, as aesthetics is an industry that is constantly evolving with newer and more sophisticated techniques and technologies implemented every single day. As Dr Zoya and Dr Sanjay are at the forefront of research, teaching, and education, they are always looking to improve, update, and be on top of their game for their patients.
That same desire for education also seeks to answer the challenge of regulation in the industry, or lack thereof. Along with the disproportionate lack of patient education, the lack of regulation can mean that many patients who decide they want to get lip fillers for example, are completely unaware of the difference in product quality, injection technique, consultation, and everything else can really make. They may only go by one parameter, which could be price. Unfortunately, when patients substitute quality for price, it often ends up costing them so much more. That is what Trikwan Aesthetics are seeking to avoid, by educating the public and helping them to understand what good practice in aesthetics looks like.
At the heart of the clinic is their simple yet effective motto: Research, Educate and Dominate. Prior to visiting Trikwan Aesthetics, both Dr Zoya, and Dr Sanjay strongly urges that their patients have thoroughly researched the clinic before they go anywhere for treatment. As the clinic places a strong focus on educating all patients through the doctor/patient journey, the team ensure that they go into great detail regarding treatment plans, product choices and the science of ageing, anatomy and beauty. The reason is simple, they want to ensure that all each patient that walks into Trikwan Aesthetics leaves happy and empowered following their treatment, and ultimately be ready to dominate and take ownership within their own life.
Every patient should always be clear on what the risks are, what the worst case scenarios are, and most importantly, how clinics handle such events. This is truly what separates the very best, such as Trikwan Aesthetics, from the rest. Those who can take responsibility and deliver the best results are those that can be trusted, even if it means undoing their own work and having to fix it in the worst case scenario. In the industry, there are those who can pretend they know what they are doing, having attended a one-day course and done some online research. Dr Zoya and Dr Sanjay’s breadth and depth of experience continues to stand them miles apart from the competition, and that is without mentioning the results. The customer service is exceptional, the results are luxurious, and the clinic itself is nothing short of utterly fantastic. One team member in particular who plays a key role in the clinic’s success, is Trikwan Aesthetics Clinic Manager, Tammy who establishes strong connections with each client who walks through their doors.
Patients can be most happy when they understand exactly what they are getting into, and why the results they are paying for are the best. Trikwan Aesthetics continues to be the best, with measures in place to always explain treatment plans in detail, the thought processes behind them, how the plan will correct or improve an issue, and showcase the beautiful results that will stand the test of time. The more you learn about Trikwan Aesthetics, Dr Zoya, and Dr Sanjay, the better it gets for the patient.
