Renée Lapino is from New Orleans, and spent the first 7 years of her career working in Dallas and Southlake, Texas with several nationally renowned plastic surgeons and injectors. She moved to London 5 years ago, and quickly established herself as one of the foremost experts in skin amongst the medical and beauty set, earning herself the moniker 'London Skin Guru'.
Renée is passionate about all types of skin, but especially scarring, anti-aging and revitalization work. She has appeared in many publications, such as Cosmopolitan, Tatler and Vogue, as the who's who of skin.
She caters to a variety of clientele; several male and female A-listers, prominent British surgeons and physicians, elite members of the press, nutritionists, personal trainers, and a long list of American, European and Arabic socialites can all regularly be found on her treatment table.
This is not surprising, as her training includes not only apprenticing under the top doctors in Texas, but also working alongside the top names in London, such as Dr. Michael Prager, Dr. Tapan Patel, and Dr. Tracy Mountford. Renée knows skin better than anyone, and achieves impressive results on the face, neck, and décolleté, as well as any part of the body.
Her treatments vary from holistic facials with a medical twist, to more invasive treatments such as laser resurfacing and micro-needling. Her ethos includes the entire body as part of the skin journey, and her consultations touch on not only on the appearance of the skin, but the living environment of the patient, supplements, diet, and home skincare as well.
She is very kind and warm - Tatler once described her as "disarmingly chatty" - and her welcoming demeanour quickly puts even the most self conscious and nervous patients at ease.
