The Bio Skin Clinic was launched in June 2018 by Ruth Strachan with the vision of offering a less aggressive approach to medical aesthetics. The emphasis of the Bio Skin Clinic is focused on offering results driven treatments. Each treatment not only enhances visual looks but also addresses overall health and wellbeing. It is Ruth’s ultimate goal to help clients become the very best version of themselves, both inside and out.
With experience in Health and Wellbeing spanning over 20 years, Ruth’s career has included working at one of Aberdeen’s large salons as a beauty therapist. This city centre salon was highly advanced for its time becoming one of the first salons to offer CACI in Scotland and during her time there, Ruth chose to specialise in non-surgical face lifts and weight loss therapies.
In order to progress professionally within her field, Ruth studied and graduated with a Diploma in Nursing. It was within nursing that she found her passion for patient teaching and preventative health. For the next 11 years, Ruth specialised in the field of Public Health within the NHS before deciding to pursue a career in Medical Aesthetics.
Having also worked in Occupational Health, she has gained a valuable insight into everyday conditions which impact on the working population. Some of the most common complaints being musculo-skeletal and mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. Ruth is an advocate of empowering clients to take control back through diet, lifestyle and treatments to enhance their overall health and wellbeing. Having gained experience at one of Scotland’s top aesthetic clinics, Ruth found her niche – taking a holistic view of skin and health using less aggressive approaches.
Ruth’s approach and philosophy for the Bio Skin Clinic is to ‘Do no harm’. She believes only in using and recommending products and treatments which do not pose any risk to her clients, using products which are free from chemical nasties - free from carcinogens. The products she chooses to use in the clinic never compromise on efficacy or results achieved. Married with her holistic approach to health and wellbeing, Ruth also extends her therapies to also focus on nutrition and health and the links between dietary intolerances and nutritional imbalances which impact on general health.
The term Bio Clinic originates from ‘Beauty Inside Out’ used to better translate the more holistic philosophy which beautifully describes all of Ruth’s visions for the Bio Skin Clinic, located in the stunning harbour town of Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire.
