Amy Robbins is an experienced dentist who has been providing facial aesthetics since 2012. Amy set up Contemporary Aesthetics Ltd in 2018 and provides all dental and advanced facial aesthetics treatments from CQC-approved dental practices in Wetherby (close to Leeds and Harrogate) and York City Centre. Amy is a member of ACE.
Consultations with Amy are comprehensive, covering your general and medical health, relevant lifestyle and explore your treatment goals. Amy assesses the face as a whole to carefully plan treatments ensuring any enhancements would sit in harmony and in proportion with your facial features. Amy is a great believer in natural, subtle results and really understanding what the patient’s concerns are and what they would like to achieve.
Amy provides multiple treatment options for softening/reducing lines and wrinkles from muscle-relaxing injections, SkinPen Precision Microneedling, Profhilo and dermal fillers dependant on the skin and patient preference.
Amy also undertakes facial recontouring and harmonisation of features using dermal fillers (often in combination with other treatments), for example, to change or improve the balance between the nose, jawline and the chin, enhancing features and the facial profile. Treatments to restore the cheek structure, alongside treatments for tear-trough where needed, can make the face appear less tired and more youthful. With full face treatments, Amy prefers to work in a phased approach achieving a gradual transformation – especially where patients would prefer treatment not be obvious. However, full face recontouring and restoration can be planned over a short amount of time (where appropriate) if patients would prefer a change with immediate impact. Facial reharmonisation can include facial slimming by reducing the size of the muscles.
Amy provides bespoke lip restoration and enhancements with high-quality dermal filler. Treatments range from treating the aging or thin lip, replacing volume lost over time to simple enhancements to the lip borders and cupid’s bow. We can also soften the vertical lines that form around the mouth over time and can improve the lip support which make the corners of the mouth appear “downturned”.
All dermal filler treatments are undertaken using a combination of needle and cannula (wherever possible) to improve comfort and safety whilst reducing any swelling and ‘downtime’ to a minimum.
SkinPen Microneedling has multiple benefits and is the gold-standard in microneedling to improve skin texture, quality, reduce the appearance of scarring (including acne), pigmentation, uneven skin tone, large pores, stretch marks, wrinkles and fine lines. It can be used all over the body and is often favoured by patients wishing to avoid injectable treatments.
Amy is trained and experienced in prescribing medical-grade skin care and is a stockist of ZO Skin Health and Obagi for specific skin concerns and general skin health. Medical-grade skincare is often the cornerstone of getting the most from your in-clinic treatments.
Alongside facial aesthetics, Amy also regularly treats snoring, oro-facial pain and “TMD” or jaw joint pain, symptoms of clenching and grinding, certain types of headaches. This can be alongside dental appliances or occasionally with injectables alone.
Amy studied Dentistry at the University of Sheffield, qualifying in 2008 where she gained her degree of Bachelor of Dental Surgery .
Since graduating, Amy has worked in dental practices located in both South and West Yorkshire and spent time working within hospital Oral and Maxillofacial Units, covering oral oncology, adult and paediatric head and neck trauma and minor oral surgery. During this time, Amy passed examinations to become a Member of the Joint Dental Faculties (MJDF) of the Royal College of Surgeons (London).
Amy then went on to work as a Specialty Dentist/Staff Grade in Oral Surgery at Rotherham Hospital one day a week between 2011-2018 undertaking minor oral surgery (e.g. difficult extractions, the removal of impacted wisdom teeth, biopsies, cyst removal and surgical endodontics) also teaching recent graduates.
In 2015, Amy was shortlisted for Oasis/BUPA Dentist of the Year and during her time with BUPA was an Educational Supervisor/Foundation Dental Trainer for 4 years, additionally gaining a Postgraduate Certificate in Healthcare Education (with Merit) from Sheffield Hallam University.
Amy continues to grow and develop her skills by attending various advanced masterclass courses and the Northern Advanced Aesthetics Study Group.
