I had my first ever facial injections at Skin Southwest with Dr. Apte, and I am very happy with my experience. The clinic setting is lovely and professional, and all the staff were very kind and reassuring throughout. This really helped to calm my nerves, and the procedure itself was far less painful than I had anticipated. I had initially come to get lip fillers, and I was also considering chin fillers in order to improve my facial profile. During my consultation, Dr. Apte agreed that chin filler would be worth doing, and advised against having much lip filler, if any at all. As a result, I had Botox injections to prepare for chin filler, and she also injected my jaw in order to treat my Bruxism which has been an issue for years, leading to neck pain, headaches, and damaged teeth. I’m really happy that Dr. Apte improved my overall health at this appointment, and I’m looking forward to coming back for fillers.

I’ve been to so many clinics over the years. This clinic and all the staff were extremely professional and friendly. Brilliant experience from start to finish. Delighted with my results. I have cancelled all other treatments at other clinics to just feel in knowledgeable safe hands.I couldn’t recommend them any higher. The aesthetic specialist is in my opinion the best I’ve been to. The treatment list is extensive and very comprehensive. I wouldn’t go anywhere else ever again. It’s reassuring to finally find a clinic I totally trust. A visit is definitely worth every penny and there’s easy parking. Always a bonus.
“I first went to Skin South West in May this year as I had a couple of events coming up and a big birthday celebration. Pradnya immediately made me feel comfortable and listened whilst I spoke about my concerns and then discussed treatment options. I have since had facials, Botox treatments and a small about of fillers in my upper lip and jawline. The difference it has made to me is unbelievable, and not just from an aesthetics point of view. It has given me more confidence and I feel like I am smiling more. I didn’t know Botox could be used around the chin area, and whilst I love having a smoother forehead, the biggest change is that I’ve lost the downturn around my mouth, as this made me look sad/miserable when I wasn’t smiling, as the corners of my mouth had started drooping. But now, I feel like I naturally smile more and it just lifts my whole face. I would highly recommend Pradnya and her amazing team. Pradnya prides herself on helping you with your concerns but keeping the look very natural. I love how you’ve helped me, thank you so much! xx”
Was lovely to hear from Pradnya today at these strange times. Though the clinic is temporarily closed due to Covid-19, it’s great to know that skincare products are still available and can be sent in the post. Thank you! I’m loving the Image skincare range!
Thank you for getting me in at such short notice. Dr Pradnya amazing as ever. Great advice, lovely chatter and grateful for taking the safety of us during these difficult times.

Dr Apte is a genius. Anyone can inject, but Dr Apte creates a masterpiece, enhancing your natural beauty. Thank you for your expertise, advice and passion in what you do so well. The care and aftercare at Skin Southwest Is excellent.
I recently booked an appointment to see Dr Pradnya Apte at Skin Southwest, Exeter because I had previously received lip filler injections from an alternative practice which I was not entirely happy with. Dr Pradnya was very welcoming and professional and was able to assist with my concerns. After analysing my lips, Dr Pradnya could understand why I had concerns and put me at ease explaining how this could be rectified by administrating a few injections to dissolve the filler. I agreed for Dr Pradnya to dissolve my filler. I felt very little pain – if any – during the injections which dissolved my filler and I was extremely pleased with the results. I felt like me again. Dr Pradnya is extremely knowledgeable, gentle and not pushy. Dr Pradnya’s practice is professional, clean and welcoming. I highly recommend!

I have been going to skinsouth west for over 1 year now and I can honestly say I will never go anywhere else. Dr Pradyna is a highly experienced practitioner and I wouldn’t trust going to anyone else. She takes her time with her work and ensures you are happy with your treatment every step of the way. She makes me feel very comfortable and has a vibrant and friendly personality. The whole team, is warm, friendly and welcoming. They make me feel very confident and comfortable. They go out of their way to make sure you have the best experience and if for any reason you are not happy with your treatment they do out of their way to fix it to. I get a couple of treatments there and have also just started getting facials with Poppy which have completely changed my skin in an incredible way! I feel so incredibly happy, confident and greatful for the Skin South West girls! Poppy is an amazing addition to the team as well and I completely trust my life with the team they are hands down the best you will find in England. The clinic itself is calming, modern and peaceful. For an extremely nervous/ scared person, I felt at ease straight away. I know how scary it can be to start getting certain types of treatments done but the team took my concerns, made them a priority and made me feel relaxed and calm straight away. Couldn’t recommend them enough!
Dr Pradnya is a delight, she is very approachable and puts you at ease from the moment you walk through the doors of her beautiful clinic. Dr Pradnya is a true professional and I have been delighted with the treatments and results that I have had. A very lovely experience from the start from a very lovely team.
Great experience at this wonderfully clean and friendly practice. Dr Pradnya was reassuring throughout and ensures that the treatment is as comfortable and pain free as possible. I opted for numbing cream only and felt minimal pain. I love my lip filler which offers a subtle enhancement and was exactly what I asked for.There was only a tiny bruise, which can easily be covered and no swelling. I am looking forward to my next treatment of Ellanse. Thank you skin southwest.
Having a great interest in skin care over many years, I have visited many London well known beauty salons. Without a doubt I find Skin South West far superior to all others. Dr. Pradnya, her staff and the whole atmosphere are excellent. How fortunate we are to have them locally. Sheila
Finding someone to trust who’s going to be messing about with your face can be scary, but so glad I found and went to Dr Pradnya. She made me feel very comfortable and reassured me that I wouldn’t be getting “duck lips”. Initially I had opted for just numbing cream and even after 25 mins it hadn’t worked properly on me, so we went for a dental block (which was the best decision I had made) Dr Pradnya wasn’t pushy, she let me decide how I wanted to proceed and was very patient. Although I have some bruising and swelling (which is very normal) my lips look gorgeous, totally natural and I think in another few days they will look even better. Dr Pradnya is obviously a complete expert at what she does because she could see how my lips were going to be and I honestly couldn’t (even with me looking in the mirror during the process). Anyway I have a follow up in a couple of weeks which is great, but for the time being they are looking fab! I’m totally happy with them and wouldn’t even consider going to anyone else for any other procedures.
So happy with my lip fillers! Dr Pradnya knew exactly what I wanted and advised on every aspect of my treatment. First time nerves were overcome very quickly! (And it was pain free)
I have to say its always such a relaxing experience visiting Skin South West, from the moment of entering I just feel completely at ease and made to feel so welcome and comfortable. Dr Pradnya is a true professional with a personal touch. Looking forward to coming back in a few weeks!
I came to Skin Southwest to sort out my heavy dark bags under my eyes. Firstly I had a consultation with Dr Pradnya who made me feel completely at ease and answered any questions I had.I can honestly save she has saved my life! With 2 treatments she has helped me feel more confident and the results are already starting to show. She constantly asked me if I was okay through out the treatment and just made me feel confortabke and not rushed. And not only did I come out with a tear trough treatment she also let me know about the products she stocks and I left with some lip treatment for dry lips which has also helped massively. So that was a added bonus.
I highly recommend her, am loving the results so far- I look forward to booking in treatments in the new year!

This was my second experience at skin South West for fat freezing, I found fantastic previous results which I was amazed at. I lost 6 inches from my waist after the 1 st procedure with following the recommended exercise and healthy eating.Skin South West have been so fantastic and reassuring in the customer care they gave me, I’m so excited to see how much I lose from this procedure! Alexis and Pradnya are amazing and I would highly rate their clinic, choices of procedures, prices and skin care. South West skin is a perfect 10.
I went to Skin South West for my first ever cosmetic procedure (lip fillers) and I can’t lie, I was extremely nervous.However upon arrival, I was greeted by Dr Pradnya herself and her very friendly staff.
There was soft calming music playing which helped to ease my nerves straight away.
The consultation was very informative and I was impressed by Dr Pradnyas extensive knowledge and professional yet friendly attitude.
The procedure itself was painless, only a slight scratching feel at one point but no more then that. She provided me with dental block and numbing cream so I couldn’t feel a thing. She worked with a very steady hand and took her time, all the while checking to see if I was okay, and showing me my lips in a mirror to check I was happy before she continued with each insert of the needle.
The clinic room where I got my procedure was very calming with pink and white colours and with a lovely view of nature and trees to look at out of the window whilst I was getting my procedure. For me this helped ease my nerves even more.
Dr Pradnya and her staff made me feel extremely comfortable. I felt I could completely trust her with everything. She listened to what I wanted and did an absolutely stunning job! My lips look so natural, my natural shape and pout was enhanced slightly and I love them she did an amazing job! No one has noticed, which is what I want, they do not look like duck lips, they look natural and fuller and stunning.
It’s safe to say, I am now a very loyal customer and I would never go anywhere else. Thank you for making my first experience relaxing, pain free and calming. I can’t wait to go back for more.

Nicky Toffolo accepted the role of Skin Southwest clinic ambassador in early 2018, following her rejuvalift. The rejuvalift is a bespoke, but non-surgical series of anti-ageing procedures designed to address the signs of ageing in the face, aimed at both men and women aged approximately from 40 - 65.
Nicky has worked as a marketing consultant and in the family hotel and leisure business. Nicky loves spending time with friends and family, she often attends functions in Devon and London with her daughter Georgia. On why she chose to have the rejuvalift, Nicky says
"I love to socialise with friends and family and often of course we take photos or selfies, I want to look and feel confident on these occasions and when I see the pictures, so I felt it was the right time to have a procedure that builds on the injectable treatments I’ve had to date but is still quite subtle and non invasive."
