Dr Menevse Kargin is passionate skin care. Born in Turkey, she initially trained as a Medical Doctor and knows the pressures that people with skin problems face. “As a MD I had patients who thought that they had to live with the skin problems that they had endured for years. They could see no solution to the scars, blemishes, pigmentations and stretch marks that had become difficult parts of their lives. These conditions left people with problems of perceptions of self image and confidence. They felt that had no choice but to tolerate and try to overcome. I knew that I could change that.”
In 2002 Dr Kargin decided that this was going to be her focus and made the change to her career direction. “I knew I could make a real difference to people lives and started to focus on various skin care treatments, nutrition and training. I believe that I can make a real difference to people’s lives. After an initial consultation, I can help people make an informed decision about the treatment they might need. It’s a decision that will enable them to feel better than ever!”
Based in London, Dr Kargin clinics specialise in medical and cosmetic care and specialise in treatments which can range from acne treatments to stress related alopecia. “We want to focus on all types of treatments for men and women, Dr Kargin continues. “We can deal with all kinds of conditions from de-pigmentation to laser hair removal. We can even encourage hair re-growth with one of our specialised vitamin cocktails. We really can provide a “one-stop shop” of skin care”.
Her patients agree. Janan Harb first visited Dr Kargin with skin problems in 2003 not believing that her skin problems could be cured. She says:
“I’d had scarring on my skin for a number of years. I had used all types of creams and methods but nothing had been effective. When I first visited Dr Kargin’s surgery for a consultation I didn’t have much hope. She told me there and then that she could cure my scarring but it might take between 3 to 4 months – perhaps longer but she promised a result within that time. I was delighted having no expectations of a cure at all. She was true to her word and now, having hidden away and wearing foundation to cover my blemishes for years, I no longer had to. Her treatments really did change my life.”
