Dr Pradnya Apte is a dentist, and Harley Street-trained aesthetics practitioner whose facial treatment skills have earned her the nickname The Lip Dentist.
She began practising aesthetics in 2006, opening her first clinic in Exter in 2015 before joining us at Harley Street in 2019.
Along the way, she has developed first-class aesthetic skills training alongside world-class Harley Street professionals. She counts her dentistry background and knowledge of facial anatomy as indispensable in allowing her to develop comprehensive treatment plans which deliver outstanding results.
Her gentle chairside manner - also a result of extensive dentistry experience - makes her a favourite among nervous and needle-phobic patients.
Pradnya is known in the industry for adhering to a science-based approach to both dentistry and aesthetics.
Throughout her career, she has kept pace with the latest developments in dental and aesthetic procedures. Pradnya is regularly invited to aesthetic industry conferences. She is a regular contributor to Aesthetic Medicine and Aesthetic Dentistry journals - as well as writing a column in Sunday Woman magazine.
Pradnya provides treatments to refresh and rejuvenate the face including collagen stimulating and dermal fillers, SkinBoosters, Profhilo, SilhouetteSoft non-surgical thread lifts, anti-wrinkle injections and of course, her trademark cheek, chin and lip augmentations.
Dr Pradnya Apte’s trademark lip augmentation procedure is the reason she is known as The Lip Dentist. Its success is thanks to Pradnya’s comprehensive knowledge of facial anatomy built up over many years working as a dentist.
The augmentation is achieved using a combination of dermal fillers and dental blocks to achieve amazing results without the pain of surgery.
The hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used in the procedure achieve immediate, stunning results on wrinkles, facial contouring and the restoration of natural volume. They work by attracting water which acts as a volumising cushion to restore elasticity and provide fantastic definition.
The fillers blend seamlessly with the face’s natural tissues for natural results lasting 6-7 months with none of the swelling or pain associated with surgery.
