Uma Jeyanathan is a Dental Surgeon and Aesthetic Practitioner with a passion for skin care and facial aesthetics. She studies the whole person to create the perfect bespoke package of care and provide clients with reinvigorated, glowing yet natural skin.
Uma trained as a dental surgeon at Newcastle University, before specialising in aesthetic and restorative dentistry. Using her knowledge of head and neck anatomy and physiology she trained in facial aesthetics and skin care. Over 14 years in practice she has developed a unique blend of aesthetic dentistry and facial aesthetics to restore a natural, fresh-faced appearance.
‘My aim is to restore people’s confidence and self-esteem. It’s definitely not about changing faces, I’m not about the unnatural look. It’s about enhancing the appearance so you go from feeling so tired, drained and down to feeling like your skin’s glowing and you’re on top of the world.’
Uma has a special interest in skin health and treatments to improve collagen content. She uses her detailed understanding of facial anatomy and skin tonicity and form to plan customised treatment programmes that enhance each person’s beauty- at every age.
‘I see lots of women around the menopause, when the falling hormone levels can make collagen and elastin in the skin depleted. However, I also help younger women in their twenties and thirties prevent skin damage and improve the health of their skin. It’s about banking collagen early, boosting skin health and improving hyaluronic acid content, which is what is gives you the glow and youthfulness.’
When not at work, Uma loves to spend time with her husband and two sons. Her inspirations are Oprah and Michelle Obama, two women who have come from minorities and smashed the glass ceiling.

I believe in the holistic approach when treating patients, addressing lifestyle factors, skin regime, and interventional treatments.
When the face requires contouring, enhancing or shaping I take a scientific approach when it comes to treatment planning. This allows me to measure, plan accurately and ensure the treatment provides the patient with the most natural result possible. I love the detail and have an artistic hand so this allows me to provide the precise technique required.
I am truly passionate about patient care and listen to what you want. And with my expert knowledge, constant motivation to learn about developing skin care and artistic eye, I aim to give you the most natural and beautiful aesthetics available.
