Having had over 32 years experience both in and out of the NHS, she chose to specialise in Aesthetic Medicine and has been an Advanced Nurse Practitioner and Independent Nurse Prescriber since 2004.

Susie Byass is professionally accountable to and regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council, which allows her to practice and ensures professional integrity and standards are upheld at all times. For added reassurance, Susie is also a member of BACN (British Association of Cosmetic Nurses), RCN (Royal College of Nursing) and NPA (Nurse Prescribing Association).
Are there any industry regulations?
Currently no, however following the PIP breast implant scandal the Secretary of State for Health in August 2012 set up ‘The Review of the Regulation of Cosmetic Interventions’. Its aim is to assess and review how the industry could be improved to better protect patients and the public. Recommendations are due to be made shortly by Lord Keogh, Medical Director of the NHS. Rejuvenating Solutions welcome this review in hope that regulation is introduced to ensure that only appropriate qualified and regulated medical and nursing professionals can deliver treatments.
Where are treatments carried out?
Susie’s clinic is in Berwick Upon Tweed:
6 The Chandlery
Berwick Upon Tweed
Clinics are also held within carefully selected partner sites in and around the Scottish Borders.
Can you explain the treatment process?
Every treatment is patient specific and starts with an initial face-to-face consultation at which point a full medical history is taken. Following the assessment and diagnosis, a personal treatment plan is formulated.
How are products selected?
Rejuvenating Solutions only uses clinically proven, evidence based products – brand leaders with a high safety profile from pharmaceutical companies such as Allergan, Merz and Obagi Medical. Prescription only medication is only prescribed following a face-to-face consultation with Susie.
Will my details remain confidential?
Be assured the service at Rejuvenating Solutions is discreet and confidential at all times – patient confidentiality is integral to Susie’s professional Code of Conduct.
