Book Consultation

Leading cosmetic medicine and aesthetic clinic based in London, Hampshire and Dorset.

Founded by experienced medical aesthetic skin doctors, Dr Victoria Manning and Dr Charlotte Woodward, our approach is about helping you to be the best version of yourself. We achieve beautiful, natural-looking results using the latest treatment innovations, delivered by highly qualified experts you can trust. Our ethos is to provide a highly personalised approach, with bespoke aesthetic procedures and treatments tailored to the life stages of each person we care for.

From the moment you step through our doors, you will receive the highest quality care and a tailored approach to meet your precise skincare needs.

All  patients begin their River Aesthetics journey with a full, no-obligation medical consultation, to help identify areas of concern and develop a tailored plan to meet your individual skincare needs.

We will always offer sound professional advice based on your individual requirements and will only offer treatments which we consider are both effective and safe. We will never suggest a treatment which we would not consider for ourselves.

You will receive clearly explained recommendations and full information which you can consider at your leisure before agreeing to any aesthetic treatments, and you’ll never be placed under any pressure to do so.

Our appointment intervals are booked so that you will not feel rushed, and wherever possible we will offer appointment times which fit with your busy lifestyle.  Depending on what kind of treatment you have, you will receive a post treatment follow up consultation 2-4 weeks later with the same practitioner.
