Una Jefford

Aesthetic & Dermatology Specialist

Úna Jefford is an Aesthetic and Dermatology specialist with prescribing and skin surgery qualifications.

She qualified with a first class honours from City University and gained a Masters in Clinical Dermatology from the University of Hertfordshire.

Her experience over the past 20 years has taken her from high end beauty spas to laser clinics, surgery in primary and secondary care, dermatology and aesthetics. She specialises in anti-ageing but also treats lots of chronic inflammatory conditions such as acne vitiligo psoriasis and eczema.

Una is the director of Dermal Health at 1 Harley Street, which has just won Aesthetic Skincare Clinic of the Year with the Prestige London and South East Awards.

Úna is always thinking outside of the box when if comes to waking the skin up, to behave as it did when we were younger.

Her truly unique Signature Aromaesthetic Facial does just that and has become a sought after facial from celebrities.

Q&A's

What will you be bringing to the Healthista Collective?

An extensive overview of how our skin behaves.  Having worked in beauty spas, and then from the other perspective in hospital dealing with skin diseases and skin surgery I can bring a wealth of knowledge into a far larger field of aesthetic dermatology.

Whenever I’m cooking, I’ll always rub some olive oil into my cuticles.  It’s so nourishing for our hands and nails so when the bottles open anyway it’s a dead easy hack to do.

It might sound cliche, but sun screen will drastically so slow the rate in which your skin will age as well as potentially prevent any cancerous lesions growing in later life. There are so many different facial  sun screens to suit your skin type so I would always recommend investing the time to find one that suits your skin.

Being Irish skinned, young and naive, I would use sun beds before my holiday to ‘get my skin used to the sun’ and ‘build a base’.  Now I realise how dangerous sun beds.
