A woman’s health is her total well-being, mentally, physically, sexually and emotionally. Aesthetic Medicine & Women’s Health is the study of facial and body, beauty and health, in as much as understanding the psychology of our perception of health and how to achieve this.
What makes a woman healthy and youthful (not necessarily younger)? It’s not about looking ‘twenty years younger’. It’s about looking and feeling exceptional for your age. Naturally, wonderfully, you!
A woman’s sense of well being can be tested daily. There are many factors both intrinsic and extrinsic that can have a big impact, both positively and negatively on our health and confidence. These include lifestyle choices, diet, exercise, partners, children and our changing bodies.
We do our best to stay active, eat well, and develop our sense of self and self worth.
Despite our greatest efforts, to better ourselves and improve, we are all subject to biology, to the ageing changes that occur to our bodies as we go through the years, and the affect this has on us psychologically and hormonally.
Understanding the ageing process allows us to refine, improve and develop our features, delivering natural results, as well as identifying the changes in a woman’s life, body and sexual health, all of which can impact on her mood and self esteem.

Dr Rosy heads our Women’s Health Sector
Identifying a need to help women develop and regain their sense of self and confidence, We are proud to open our unique Women’s Health Department, at Dr Nestor’s Medical Cosmetic Centre, the first of it’s kind in Scotland.
Dr Nestor’s ethos has always been to bring out the best in you and help you wear your years with pride. Dr Rosy, with her years of experience in general practice and Women’s Health, joins our team to focus on helping you through some of the biggest changes your body will undergo in life; after pregnancy; during and after menopause.
Menopause & Hormones
Treating some of the symptoms and resulting effects of menopause. These include hormonal fluctuations of oestrogen and progesterone, as well as the changes the body undergoes as a result of this, vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence and changes in libido and sexual satisfaction. It is predicted that by 2030 a third of women will be living half their lives post menopause
42% of women in the UK suffer from a form of urinary incontinence, with stress incontinence the leading type. Only 25% of these women visit their doctor for advice, many suffering alone. A leading cause of stress incontinence is vaginal delivery. This is due to the damage caused to collagen in the birth canal during delivery, which never fully regains its integrity and elasticity. Tightening and restoring the physiology in this area can stop those uncomfortable moments.
Stress Incontinence and vaginal laxity as a result of the above can undermine a woman’s body image and self esteem. Sadly, a woman’s intimate health after childbirth and post menopause remains a largely taboo subject. We feel that these issues impact women daily and should no longer stay taboo.
Dr Rosy believes that women of all ages and stages have the right to good sexual health. The World Health Organisation defined sexual health as ”Mental, physical and social well being in the sphere of sexuality”

Skin is extremely important. It is the largest organ in the body and a central factor in human appearance. Whether we are aware of it or not, our skin has a profound influence on human interaction and psychological wellbeing. It is the first thing people see when they meet us and the only part we see of each other that is truly ‘us’. What is more, skin is a visual reflection of inner health and wellbeing and the first place we are likely to notice signs of ageing.
In spite of all this, skin is usually taken for granted and often neglected by both doctors and patients.
Skin health can have a direct effect on quality of life, which is a relatively new concept.
At Dr Nestor’s Medical Cosmetic Centre we believe that every person not only can achieve great skin, but that they deserve great skin!
