The Twenty SS20 Issue

The Wellness Clinic

By Jo Phillips

There is much adage about how joined-up thinking is far better than standing alone: many hands make light work or we are better together. And surely it is that simple. The more expertise means more reliable information which means better delivery. When great minds meet…

Skincare company NYDG was built with just this in mind. Conceived by a multi-disciplinary team from the American Academy of Dermatology Board Certified Dermatologists, Internal Physicians, Aestheticians and Chemists in order to make a skincare brand designed for all ages. There is, after all, no substitute for hands-on experience coming together.

Founded initially in 1996 by dermatologist, internist and author Dr. David Colbert, New York Dermatology Group started as a state-of-the-art skin care centre in the heart of New York City. It enjoys a global reputation for excellence in advanced dermatology, an international pioneer of minimally invasive cosmetic services. NYDG is acclaimed for its cutting-edge skin rejuvenation methods, technologies and treatments.

They also have a product line that is simple to use and designed for active lifestyles, NYDG skincare promotes healing and repair. Skin sensitivity is increasing, all too often self-inflicted through overly aggressive products. This adage has been much repeated here. Don’t over complicate your skincare, if you do, you could actually do more damage than good.

All of our skin has a natural PH balance of 5.5 so ideally we want to use products that don’t destroy it. Gentle is Far better than harsh…always.

There have been massive gains in skincare technology. Understanding the science of it has come so far in less than 15 years, however, protection, healing via maintenance and anti-aging has come so far from the radical introduction and use of technology in skincare. It’s all about where science can help.

NYDG has succeeded as a brand, so alongside its skincare rich in antioxidants that are vegan paraben-free and not tested on animals, it partnered with London store, Harrods, to open the wellness clinic.

The Wellness Clinic brings together world-renowned experts – both permanent and visiting – from the fields of wellbeing, aesthetics, dermatology and lifestyle. Offering a holistic range of signature services from cryotherapy and acupuncture to nutrition and spiritual healing, it’s the ultimate one-stop destination with treatment plans tailored to the individual.

Integrative beauty where a technological approach sits with holistic and even spiritual exercise is the most interesting phase existing right now, where mind, body and soul all meet.

“The Wellness Clinic is our approach to this, so that’s the best of the aesthetic beauty world, combined with a much more holistic approach to beauty and treatments,” Harrods said.


Under the medical direction of Dr. Papageorgiou an award-winning facial aesthetic surgeon and Dr. Costas Papageorgiou, part of the New York Dermatology Group (NYDG) who specialises in aesthetic procedures for the face using minimally invasive techniques, they offer signature rejuvenating treatments. NYDG’s approach is to customise treatment plans, implementing 3D imaging and cutting-edge technologies to achieve the most natural results possible.

NYDG is offering a wide range of treatments including facial aesthetics, NYDG signature facials, and NYDG body remodeling. An exclusive selection of its treatments for the face and body are offered at The Wellness Clinic at Harrods in London.

In January 2017 The NYDG product line was introduced to the market and 1% of proceeds supported the work of their foundation to aid projects around the world.

Their foundation provides real support on the ground level for those in need. For example, on January 12, 2010, a 7.0 magnitude scale earthquake hit Haiti. On January 14, 2010, Dr. Colbert traveled to Haiti to assist with emergency medical care and in April 2010 he partnered with the Hanger Sabel Foundation to establish a clinic to provide prosthetics for post-op amputees from the Haiti earthquake. Since August 2010 NYDG Foundation supports Wilfrid Macena with Team Zaryen, a Haitian amputees soccer team. The team is a harbinger of hope and traveled to Rome to meet Pope Benedict XVI, on the five-year anniversary of the earthquake.

The NYDG Foundation is a global network of experts, with influence and resources, who come together to improve medical wellness. Their mission is to deliver on-the-ground education, prevention and relief to humans in need.

The list of potential treatments is extensive so see below a handful of what they have to offer

The Triad Facial™ involves three regenerative steps:

  1. Microdermabrasion to gently prime the skin surface.
  2. Laser toning to help boost collagen, improve elasticity and stimulate cellular renewal.
  3. A personalized Glycolic Peel to gently exfoliate the skin and reveal a fresher looking complexion.

NYDG Runway Facial

Conceived by Dr. David Colbert as the ultimate skin preparation for his A-list clients, The Runway Facial provides camera-ready radiant skin with no downtime. Combining advanced medical skincare technology with the cosmetic boost of a facial, this treatment delivers rapid hydration and brightens the appearance of the skin.

The Runway Facial involves six regenerative steps:

  1. Microdermabrasion to gently prime the skin surface.
  2. Laser toning to help boost collagen, improve elasticity and stimulate cellular renewal.
  3. Infrared light waves to rejuvenate skin and stimulate collagen production by activating fibroblast metabolism to help lift and tone.
  4. IPL (Intense Pulse Light) treatment to help brighten the skin tone.
  5. A personalized Glycolic Peel to gently exfoliate the skin and reveal a fresher looking complexion.
  6. LED therapy to promote skin healing by stimulating cellular activity.

NYDG Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

Hybrid 3D Energy Lift. Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) is a powerful cocktail of proteins (growth factors) devised by Dr. Costas Papageorgiou. This multi-layered non-surgical treatment has its own cell biology that combines energy to stimulate wave cell and regeneration and other technologies in a single session, aiming to achieve a sustained process of facial rejuvenation.

The procedure utilises NYDG state-of-the-art Arthrex system, which has a high dose of NYDG customised Hybrid and sterile concentration of growth factors. Optimal collagen 3D Energy Lift uses stimulation that can often be achieved with one single session and one Ultrasound wave (micro-focused ultrasound) to help lift and tighten skin laxity on the face, neck and décolletage. The treatment aims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten and tone the skin. The treatment replenishes lost light volume with infrared waves and helps rejuvenate and boost collagen in the skin and its production. It stimulates collagen production by activating fibroblast metabolism to help lift and tone.

Sculpture Laser

The sculpture laser and energy lift treatments are FDA-approved fat remodeling procedures that use light-based technology devised by Dr. Costas Papageorgiou. This multi-layered nonsurgical treatment combines, disrupt and eliminates unwanted energy waves to promote fat-blasting technologies in a single chin session in as little as 25 minutes. Metabolised over time, dead fat cells can result in a slimmer and more defined appearance of the jawline and neck. Results are seen as quickly as six weeks while the 3D energy lift procedure will show final results typically after twelve weeks.

NYDG Hybrid 3D Energy Wave Lift

Ultherapy: Ultrasound Lift

Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment of the face, neck and décolletage that Dr. Costas Papageorgiou uses. This multi-layered non-surgical treatment, lifting effect combines powerful ultrasound energy waves to initiate a gradual remodeling in a single session. It aims to lift and tighten skin without downtime, achieved by employing a sustained focused process of facial energy rejuvenation.

The Ultherapy NYDG is Hybrid the only 3D non-surgical Energy Lift uses: a cosmetic procedure that implements ultrasound with visualisation to catalyze a thermal effect beneath the skin. The one Ultrasound wave (micro-focused ultrasound) helps lift and tighten skin laxity engaging a reparative process that strengthens existing collagen and produces new collagen on the face, neck and décolletage. 3D imaging is used to assess facial contours, customise our two Infrared light waves to rejuvenate skin and stimulate collagen production and assess improvement over time while activating fibroblast metabolism to help lift and tone.

This IPL FDA-approved (Intense Pulse procedure Light) treatment lasts one hour and targets redness and brown spots, most clients experience no downtime. The majority of CO2 Cryotherapy patients benefit from enhanced radiance in one session and increased treatments of oxygen are tailored to each circulation for the patient’s needs whilst outcomes depend on the degree of laxity possessed and rate of clearance of toxins from the body’s response to ultrasound energy.

The Photobionic waves (photo-bio-stimulation process) promote cellular repair. The regenerative impact of this procedure manifests over several months to achieve a natural-looking result. Clients treated with Ultherapy continue to enjoy the results from the deeper muscular foundation of the dermis effects of (SMAS) renewed to the superficial epidermis. Patients can experience noticeable collagen within a year following treatment. Additional ‘touch up’ facial appointments lifting will maintain results and help keep pace with the natural aging process.

NYDG Biological Skin Therapies Lip Lift is Dr. Papageorgiou’s Platelet hybrid approach to rich lip plasma rejuvenation which targets anatomic changes. Therapy of the bone structure and lip fat pads, as well as the action of the superficial Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP), is a powerful cocktail of proteins (growth factors) for the lip muscles that aims to stimulate cell regeneration by using a patient’s own cell biology.

A cut above is an unconventional technique which revitalises the lip anatomy by combining the procedure and NYDG low viscosity state-of-the-art hyaluronic Angel® gel fillers, Arthrex, with the system of micro droplets which yield muscle in the modulators. Optimal collagen stimulation can often be achieved with a single session.

The treatment supports the collapsed lip structures, volumises the deflated lip fat pads and aims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by hydrating the surface of the lip.

The procedure aims to improve the 3D projection of the lip without altering its general aesthetic appearance. Outcomes are noticeable within 3-6 weeks and often continue to improve over time. Maintenance treatments are recommended to sustain the rejuvenating effect.

NYDG Facial Aesthetics Male Hybrid 3D Energy Lift is a multi-layered nonsurgical treatment that combines energy waves and other technologies in a single session, aiming to achieve a natural look. Dr. Papageorgiou offers the latest minimally invasive procedures. The customised Hybrid 3D Energy Lift uses ultrasound waves (micro-focused ultrasound) to help lift and tighten skin laxity, a wide neck platform and décolletage. Two subtle Infrared enhancing light waves are used to rejuvenate skin and correct weak or unbalanced features, increase collagen production by activating masculine fibroblast and help contour a more lifted and prudent tone. Three IPL (Intense Pulse Light) treatments target redness and brown spots. CO2 Cryotherapy enhances radiance and increases oxygen circulation for the clearance of toxins. Photobionic waves (photo-bio-stimulation process) are used to promote cellular repair. By addressing all layers of the face, from the deeper muscular foundation of the dermis (SMAS) to the superficial epidermis, patients can experience a noticeable facial lifting and reduction in discoloration.

The NYDG Hybrid 3D Energy Lift, or E-Lift, is a non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation, devised by Dr. Costas Papageorgiou. It is a multi-layered nonsurgical treatment that combines energy waves and other technologies in a single session. This 3D reconstruction achieves facial rejuvenation in a staged approach, age-related changes and deflation in the eyelid and eyebrow complex. The NYDG Hybrid 3D Energy Lift uses one ultrasound wave (micro-focused ultrasound) to help lift and tighten skin laxity. During the NYDG E-Lift, microdroplets of hyaluronic acid gel filler are skillfully placed on the face, neck and décolletage administered to restore a youthful contour in the most expressive area of the face. The procedure uses two infrared light waves to rejuvenate skin and stimulate collagen production by replenishing and activating fibroblast volume loss. This procedure works as a mini-lift for sagging eyelids, improving eyebrow deflation and reducing the appearance of IPL (Intense Pulse Light) treatment to target redness and brown spots and under-eye dark circles. Results can last up to a year.
