Dr Uka specialises in non-surgical cosmetic procedures and holds private clinics at Skin Deep. Dr Uka qualified at St Mary's Hospital Medical School in London in 1994. After training to become a GP, she developed her interests in Dermatology and skincare, and went on to specialise in this field, treating a wide spectrum of skin complaints including eczema, acne and psoriasis, as well as offering advice on general skin health and non-surgical procedures to remedy cosmetic concerns.
At her clinics Dr Uka offers Bo-tox and dermal fillers to treat pigmentation, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles; as well as using the procedures for rejuvenation of the face, neck, chest and hands. She is also qualified in resurfacing techniques and medical grade chemical peels for severely damaged skin. Dr Uka offers a confidential and professional service.

Used to treat stubborn facial lines and wrinkles, Bo-tox temporarily smoothes lines created by muscle over-activity. This treatment is particularly effective when used to treat lines on the forehead, around the lips and crow’s feet around the eyes. The overall effect is a smoother, more rejuvenated appearance. On average, results last for up to four months.
Derived from a naturally occurring substance, dermal fillers plump, smooth and firm the skin. Dermal fillers can be used to add definition and plumpness to the lips and cheeks, as well as reducing wrinkles around the lips, nose, mouth and across the forehead. The effects can last up to nine months.
Restylane Vital is an anti-ageing treatment used to treat larger areas, such as the neck, décolletage, hands and face. When injected into the skin, Restylane replenishes the skin’s supplies of hyaluronic acid, working deep down to stimulate the production of collagen, improving the skin’s elasticity. The intensive rehydration of the skin results in a fresher, plumper and more youthful appearance. The effects can last up to six months. A course is required and involves 3-5 treatments at one month intervals.
This treatment is used to treat poor skin texture caused by acne scarring, stretch-marks sun damage and ageing. The micro-medical needle treatment stimulates the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, increasing blood supply to the affected area, promoting the skin’s natural healing process. The result is a smoother, brighter and more even complexion with noticeably reduced scars and blemishes. Effects are visible after six weeks. A course of three treatments, six weeks apart, is recommended.
The top layers of the skin can appear thick and dull; this treatment removes the superficial layers of the skin to treat signs of ageing, acne and hyper pigmentation. It is also effective at reducing the appearance of sun damage. After the recommended course of 3-4 treatments, skin is brighter, fine lines are removed and pigmentation is minimised. Results are visible after two weeks of treatment.
This deep peel has been developed to treat damaged skin, acne scars, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, blemishes and sun damage on the face and neck. It is a controlled peel tailored to the individual. The strength of the treatment is dependant on the client’s skin concerns and is decided after a thorough consultation with the doctor. Due to its strength, only one, hour long treatment is necessary. Post-peel, the skin takes between five and ten days to heal. This treatment is carried out at Dr Uka’s clinic, not at Skin Deep.
To book a consultation with Dr Uka, contact Skin Deep. The salon is open seven days a week with flexible evening appointments available on request; late night opening until 10 pm two days a week.
