DR RAQUEL SKIN AND MEDICAL COSMETICS WAS FOUNDED BY DR RAQUEL AMADO

Dr Raquel was born in Portugal, where she graduated as a dental surgeon in 2007.

She undertook training for six years, studying human physiology, pathology, biology and specifically the head and neck. 

Soon after, Dr Raquel moved to England, working for the NHS as a General Dentist.

Over the years, she did a post-graduate in Dental Sedation and Pain Management at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute in London, a year certificate of Cosmetic and Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry, as well as other accreditations.

It was at this point Dr Raquel developed a real passion for medical aesthetics. She completed several training courses on facial aesthetics with such prestigious institutions as Derma Medical, Face and Harley Academy, before founding her own aesthetics clinic in Kings Hill. 

At Harley Academy, Dr Raquel also found a home as a Lead Senior Clinical Mentor for the UK’s largest postgraduate training provider in aesthetic medicine, guiding other medical professionals through the UK’s first fully-regulated Level 7 qualification for injectables.

She is an Affiliated Member of the Aesthetics Complication Expert Group (ACE) of practitioners and CMAC, which aims to improve patient safety in facial aesthetics.

As Dr Raquel has been clinically trained to use anaesthetics safely, she is highly skilled with needles and injection techniques. 

Throughout her career, Dr Raquel has understood that most people are looking for a reliable, honest relationship with their practitioner, which is why she takes the time to understand how her patients feel.

Dr Raquel is known for her friendly and caring manner, being discreet, and putting her patients at ease. She is committed to the provision of safe, high-quality patient care in order to achieve the best outcomes for patients, and make them feel confident in their own skin.
