5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser
I received CO2 laser for treatment of fine lines under the eyes and acne scars. I have seen quite a dramatic improvement and I am so incredibly happy with the result! Dr Shobhan Manoharan upheld the highest-standard of professionalism and was patient, kind and helpful throughout the process (and during recovery). He answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable during the procedure....
5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Manoharan. He answered any and all my questions with patience, understanding and thoroughness. He is not only friendly but very professional, and gives you a great sense of confidence in the treatment(s) advised. I dod not hesitate therefore to proceed and have been 100% happy with my results. Excellent before and aftercare also. I also found his nurse...
5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
Exceptional. Dr Manoharan has a sensitive and genuine care to his patients. His attention to detail is exceptional and I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Manoharan to any of my friends. I will continue to seek his consultation on my skin care. Highly recommend.

A highly skilled, professional & personable Doctor, that is Shobhan Manoharan
5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
Dr Shobhan Manoharan is extremely professional, polite and clearly knowledgeable. He has a calming way about him that reduces any anxiety about showing him any skin conditons etc. Any random questions I had about various issues he always knows the answer and his solutions work perfectly. Emily completed the actual fraxel laser treatment and she is brilliant. Whilst initially I thought she appeared very young, it was evident immediately that she knows her job inside out. She completed the procedure so efficiently and chatted to me keeping me not only aware of what was happening, but also keeping me distracted from stressing about it!
5 out of 5 stars Laser Treatment
Dr Manoharan was very friendly, listened to what I was asking for and put me at ease. Throughout all of my appointments with him, he has been on time, spent time with me to discuss and conduct the procedures - overall a very pleasant experience. I will be going back!
5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment
Dr Manoharan was very professional and made me very comfortable with the treatments options that were available. He spent time with me, explaining the procedure well, which meant that I had no concerns with the course of treatment he was suggesting. After the procedures, he provided me with regular care and the nurses were also very supportive.
I have had subcision to loosen some of the tethered scars and TCA cross to rebuild some of the holes. Many of my friends have commented that it has made some difference. I am not convinced it is very much difference, but am happy with the process so far. Next in the process is the CO2, erbium laser followed by Recell. I don't know how much to expect - I do know not to expect miracles but I am...
5 out of 5 stars Laser Surgery
Dr Manoharan was great! He understood my fears and took the time to explain the procedure to me and alleviate my fears of having huge holes left in my face. The procedure itself was completely pain-free and very quick. Post-care was great too, with written instructions and cream provided to me.
5 out of 5 stars Laser Hair Removal
Shobhan Manoharan and Emily Hyde Emily completes the laser hair removal each session and she is awesome. I actually almost look forward to going back each time! She is such a positive happy person and always completes the treatment so efficiently. She takes great pride in her work and is always eager to hear about how it has been since the last treatment, and explaining to me any potential side effects etc. Getting the laser treatment does hurt a bit so I appreciate how swift Emily is at completing it. She always chats whilst doing it which also keeps your focus away from the pain. My treatments are about 6 weeks apart and I am always surprised that Emily actually remembers details between appointments. I will always recommend to friends to get it done, and to wait to be fitted in with Emily. My only disappointment is that I didn't do this 10 years ago! So exciting to have smooth hair free skin and not have to shave again.
Dermatology is a pleasure and passion for me. I enjoy meeting new patients and building long-term relationships. The key is to listen to your patient’s concerns, talk them through the options most suited to them, then tailor a bespoke plan to help each individual look and feel their best.

As a laser and aesthetic dermatologist, I am introduced to and am involved in trialling new products and devices on a weekly basis. So it takes a special product to get me excited. Think MiraDry, Fraxel, Infini/Intensif, effective PRP. Well, this weekend, I was amongst a small group of specialists invited to the launch of Belkyra, from the Allergan stable of injectable agents. AND I AM EXTREMELY EXCITED! This is not another muscle relaxant trotted out to rival Botox...
