*“ I've been using this clinic for a while and since the beginning, I have been very pleased with the treatment and recommend it to anyone. Professional, friendly and good value service!
Dermal Fillers, Liposuction*I have had facial treatments such as anti-wrinkle treatment, fillers, pixel at Perfect Image for about three years. I also had a little abdominal lipolysis as far back as 2012. I am extremely pleased with the results and the charges are very very reasonable. I recommend this clinic whole heartedly
Excellent results!!! I am extremely satisfied with the results of the two treatments received by Dr Silva. He is so very professional and has a great sense of humour which made me feel at home and relax before starting anti-wrinkle filler treatment. I must admit that I am a very demanding and picky customer when it comes to facial treatment as I cannot settle for the lower quality of it, so I was wondering how well the doctor could manage to meet up to my expectations. Despite my misgiving Dr Silva was supremely skilful and needless to say I have had the best results ever! I am so glad that I have chosen this clinic. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and the prices are very reasonable I will highly recommend this clinic to anyone and you will never regret. As for me, yes, I shall certainly return to Dr Silva in the future for the same treatment
*I was made to feel very comfortable at the clinic, Dr Silva spent a lot of time explaining the treatment and was entertaining along the way which made me feel very relaxed. The background music during treatment also made a pleasant atmosphere. I am happy with my treatment and the prices are very reasonable
Lip Correction*I couldn't be happier with my results at the Perfect Image clinic, I have had a wonderful experience that has drastically improved the look of my lips! I was welcomed warmly immediately and throughout my time at Perfect Image, I thank DR. Silva so much for my results in fixing my lips that were previously awfully done. I have so much faith in DR. Silva with all of his knowledge and incredible work. Not to mention his caring attitude to his patients and i assure anybody in the world would be incredibly delighted with Perfect Image
*I cannot thank and praise Dr.Silva at Perfect Image enough for his incredible work, I am now amazed and so delighted with the look of my lips. I have total faith in Dr.Silva as he listens to his patients and they're expectations and wishes, and is extremely comforting and informative. His work is impeccable. I am so pleased with the results, Dr.Silva actually originally repaired my lips after I had filler elsewhere, I then came back to see Dr.Silva with hopes he could make my lips significantly bigger to achieve the look I always wanted, and I couldn't believe how natural they looked whilst still significantly bigger, I am still so surprised and so happy. I haven't stopped looking at them since I came home! I am always at complete confidence and joy whilst at the Perfect Image clinic. I think it is so important to be at ease and feel that your doctor is working with you to understand expectations, I have never been happier with my lips or the amazing service that is always received at Perfect Image. I am now at ease that whenever I need treatments I can trust Dr.Silva as he is such a wonderful person and again, his work is truly impeccable. Thank you so much!!!My experience with the Perfect Image clinic couldn't be praised enough. It is always the most comforting experience and I have total confidence with them. I am looking forward to returning to Perfect Image whenever I feel necessary. Thank you! ”
*Yesterday I had another wonderful treatment at the Perfect Image clinic. Once again I am more than delighted with the results. I had lip filler again with Dr. Silva and I know I will always be so happy with the treatment at the clinic. I love the look of my lips and today there is barely any bruising or swelling which is nice, no pain either. He has enhanced them brilliantly. Once again I cant stop looking in the mirror! Again, I am over the moon. Thankyou!!!I wouldn't consider going anywhere else! I always say how refreshing it is to have such a wonderful atmosphere and treatment from Dr.Silva. Unlike other Dr's and practitioners he is an absolute gentleman, and puts his patients happiness first, which leads to me being very grateful! 100% happy. I always look forward to going over to the clinic, I would recommend Perfect Image to anyone
*A few days ago I was back again visiting the lovely Dr. Silva at Perfect Image! my mother and I had a lovely time at the clinic and once again my expectations were totally exceeded! I had a top up of my dermal filler in the lips, which I am over the moon with once again! They are bigger and beautiful but yet still look natural (which is outstanding and thanks to Dr. Silva's fantastic technique) i would NEVER go anywhere else for my treatments. I also had some microdermabrasion to the face which I am still so excited about as my skin responded SO well to it. It was actually very relaxing and immediately after the treatment my skin felt brand new. I was definitely not expecting such a huge difference in just one treatment! I haven't worn makeup since as I haven't needed to. As someone who has such troubling skin (acne and dry patches etc.) I've tried hundreds of treatments in my time, so when something works im so surprised and happy. My skin is glowing, softer than ever, and the pores are more refined, the microdermabrasion has improved the texture so much.I couldn't praise the clinic more, the atmosphere is wonderful, It feels like a second home. Years ago id been to so many clinics, but since finding Perfect Image I've been totally delighted and will always be back. I feel much more confident in my look, results are always great. Whatever you're looking for, I can assure anybody would be so happy with their treatment
*I visited Dr Silva for treatment for wrinkles on a recommendation from a friend. I'd thought long and hard for a very long time before deciding to do it and now I wish I'd done it years ago! I had a very lined forehead and terrible frown lines that made me miserable and I knew I wanted rid of them, and they have now gone. Dr Silva was wonderful, made me feel relaxed, answered all of my questions and reassured me I'd get the result I was looking for without looking too plastic. I'm absolutely delighted and I've taken pictures every day since last Saturday to see the difference. I'm still waiting for the frown lines to completely disappear and I'm aware treatment for wrinkles reaches its peak after 14 days so I know I'm being impatient. Dr silva phoned me to make sure everything was ok and told me to call him if I needed any advice or had any questions. Dr is a very lively character and loves a chat, I was in there nearly 2 hours and the injections only took 10 mins but it was a lovely friendly professional service. I already know that I'll be going back for more once this wears off as I've never felt better in myself. Thank you Dr SilvaLovely friendly experience. Will be visiting again for sure. It's tucked away at the end of Ruislip high street, I didn't even know it existed! Dr Silva is a wonderful man, very professional and knows his stuff

*After researching Perfect Image and Dr Silva, I plucked up the courage, made the appointment and was instantly put at ease as soon as I arrived. Dr Silva didn't rush the consultation and together we put together a treatment plan. We started with fillers , both of which were painless and expertly administered. I have now had two treatments and will be having a chemical peel at my third appointment.The clinic is very professional, I didn't feel pushed into doing anything I didn't want to, there is no hard sell. Dr Silva is more interested in achieving the results that you want to achieve in a gentle, no rush step programme
*Where do I begin? For the past few years I've become increasingly self conscious about the lines appearing on my forehead. A year ago, after trying every lotion and potion under the sun, I decided to look into Dermal Fillers. I had been trailing up and down Harley Street from clinic to clinic, feeling quite intimidated by the intense atmospheres, the 3 minute in and out sausage factory style consultations, not to mention the car show room style pushy sales....... (I couldn't get out quick enough) Then, just as I thought all hope was lost I stumbled across my knight in shining Armour Dr Silva! What a lovely, kind heated genuine man! The clinic is a small personal clinic just off Ruislip high street. I was greeted by Julie, the loveliest lady who put my nerves of previous experience right at ease. It almost felt like home from home! I sat and had a good half an hour long discussion with Dr Silva (and a lovely cup of tea), about what would make me happy, why, and what I would like to achieve Dr Silva, went above and beyond explaining every detail of Dermal Fillers, and what he could do for me. All of this time was free! I proceeded with the Dermal Fillers, it was pretty much pain free, (eyebrow threading is a zillion times worst). I'm yet to see the full results (one week on) but so far I'm super happy! I trust him whole heatedly and couldn't recommend him enough. I'm going to go back for more treatments to help with acne in the near future! Thank you so much to Dr Silva and the team! See you soon 🙂
*I saw Dr Silva about 18 months ago and he removed a mole. He was very thorough in asking me what I wanted done and why. The procedure was painless and I couldn't believe the results. There was no scar whatsoever. I had a mole removed about 10 years ago and you can still see the scar - I didn't know Dr Silva then. Would definitely recommend.I was also recommended the Obagi 360 which I used twice a day for over 2 weeks. Again I was very pleased with the results and will buy it again.I recently had dermal fillers and once again Dr Silva was extremely thorough. We had a long consultation and we talked through exactly what results I wanted to see. I was a bit nervous but there was no reason to be. Dr Silva is very understanding and I will definitely be going back.
*"This was my first visit to Perfect Image Consultants &i have already recommended them to all my friends. Dr Silva made me feel totally relaxed & comfortable, he aired on the side of caution with his recommendations, which i found both professional & refreshing. The whole experience was excellent and I will definitely be visiting again."
