Lumigan® solution is a growth treatment for eyelash lengthening. Applied once at night to the base of the upper lashes it stimulates the growth phase of the hair follicle and the number of hairs in this phase. This can result in longer lashes after 4 weeks and full growth in 16 weeks. The active ingredient is Bitamoprost. Allergan (a pharmaceutical company with 60 years eye care experience) developed Lumigan® in 2001. Initially used in the treatment of raised ocular pressure (glaucoma), users noticed their eyelashes grew thicker and longer. Further trials proved the active ingredient bitamoprost specifically stimulates the growth of eyelashes.

The Botox I had in that 1 area looks great and I can really see the difference!
Dr Anna Hemming is extremely professional and knowledgeable in all kinds of treatments and skin care where her expertise is second to none.
I have known Dr Hemming for many years and she successfully treated my children’s acne and now she is successfully treating my middle age complaints. She is an inspiration and always full of enthusiasm for the help she can give her patients. She is passionate about her work and is conservative yet proactive to give just the tweaks needed to improve skin health and appearance.
I received Fractora treatment now 3 weeks ago from Dr Hemming. There has been a slow healing and gradually I see myself less tired looking and my lines have noticeably reduced . The beginnings of a jowel I had along my jawline has disappeared which is exactly the part of my face that bothered me most. It seems as if I’ve had a face lift! My skin is firmer and the hollows less deep. I dare say I look younger .
I had a wonderful experience with Dr Anna yesterday , I had Fractora and Forma radio frequency treatment on my face. I was rather anxious before hand but when I arrived Dr Anna put my mind at ease. I felt so relaxed and actually quite excited about having this treatment done ! My face was slightly red and a little soar afterwards but I didn’t feel I needed to take any pain killers. This morning my face was slightly red, not enough that my children noticed! So that was a good sign. So far so good . I’m very happy with the treatment. Thank you Dr Anna for doing such a great job .
It was great to find Dr Anna, she works in a very professional environment. She has a great eye for detail. I am very happy with my results and I will definitely be back to find out more about your skin care range too.
- Loving my skin. ZO Products are going well!!Botox is great and filler – I love love love 🙌🏻 deffo having that again 🙂March 2017.
I was checking out holiday make up at Laura Mercier in John Lewis at the weekend, the lady at the counter commented on how good my skin was. She was suffering with acne and so I recommended ZO as she had tried everything else. Made me realise how much my skin has changed!
No make up and loving it, you have totally sorted out my skin. You have a gift, use it! One happy 40 year old. Love you!
I was recently on a train returning from the airport when a complete stranger approached me.
‘I have to tell you how amazing you skin looks, it’s so radiant and glows!’
‘Thank you’ I said, thinking I must tell Anna next time I see her. It’s all down to her and my skin feels so smooth and radiant again.

Hello Anna! Just writing to tell you I am really happy with the result, thank you! Norwegian client Sept 2012
Hi Dr. Hemming! I love love love what you did…it looks awesome and I feel great. My cheeks are just a bit sore but it’s really not that bad. Other than that, so far no other side effects. So I’ll see you again down the road in a bit for a Botox top up. Until then, take care and all the best:) Wimbledon Sept 2012
Thank you so much Anna. Yes it is rather a lot to remove! It is definitely looking like a perfect balance 🙂 and I am feeling better inside already. I am so
grateful 🙂 Nov 2012
Thank you for helping me to look amazing at my wedding last month. Finally I have my acne under control. It means so much to me. June 2014
Good luck with the exciting times ahead. I am so sad you are not in London over the summer, but excited for you and your new arrival. Thank you for all you have done for my skin over the last 2 years. I feel like a new person. May 2014
Anna, I don’t know how you did it but I feel amazing. My family and friends in NZ couldn’t stop commenting about how young I look. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Nov 2013
Hi Anna, Just wanted to tell you how thrilled I am with results!! 🙂 Teddington June 2013
The area you treated yesterday looks good, no puffiness, no redness and the lumps are already smaller. Thank you, again. Richmond Jan 2013
So far I am thrilled with the absence of crows feet and my frown lines have lessened although I still have a lot of frown expression. I think you explained this may take more time since they are quite deep. I wish I had taken your advice and gone for the brow too since I can now see how this area in conjunction with the other two would perhaps have had a greater effect. I will definitely return!
