A DOCTOR who has been aiding the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic is ready to reopen his aesthetics clinic in Warrington town centre this weekend.

The Plasma Doctor, in Sankey Street, first opened in May last year, providing treatments such as dermal fillers, wrinkle relaxing injections and Plasma Pen.

Dr James Corcoran, founder, had to close the clinic back in February, to assist in his role as clinical director for theatres at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.

He explained: "As Covid has occurred during our first year of trading it has been a challenging period, which was added to by needing to close the clinic earlier than some others to allow me to commit more time to the NHS during its pre-Covid preparations."

With a wealth of experience, James is now looking forward to welcoming back clients thanks to a full range of coronavirus safety measures in place.

"The main thing we have installed is some hospital grade filtration systems," he said.

"But, there will also be hand sanitiser, a reduced the number of chairs, using face masks and visors, we've taken away leaflets, magazines and things people can touch, and we're spreading out appointments."

James, who is the clinical lead at The Plasma Doctor is a qualified doctor and dentist, giving his clients peace of mind.

"I think we are different from the other clinics in the area," James said.

"We provide the usual treatment of Botox injections and dermal fillers, and being a doctor we do get people coming to us to see if we can help when they are unhappy with the results from treatments at other clinics.

"As a clinic we are also proud to offer some of the more cutting edge regenerative treatments that stimulate the body to produce more of its own collagen as this give a more natural and longer lasting result.

"We pride ourselves on offering only evidence-based therapies in a regulated, ethical and patient centred approach that is frequently lacking in aesthetics today."

The Plasma Doctor will reopen on Saturday, August 1, offering a 20 per cent discount for Blue Light Card holders - available for emergency services, the social care sector and the armed forces.
