Introduction to Skin Southwest

Source Spa and Wellness are delighted to be collaborating with Dr Pradnya Apté, one of the UK's leading Aesthetic Practitioners.

Source will be holding an evening with Dr Pradnya on Thursday 28th February 7pm where she will introduce her signature treatment Silhouette Soft Thread Lift along with more treatments to address specific areas of concern:

  • Dermal Fillers: Placed to augment the chin and volumise the cheeks
  • Botox: Wrinkle relaxing (Dr Pradnya won an award in this treatment for WhatClinic Customer Service 2016/17)
  • Rejuvalift: Skin Southwest’s signature treatment is a combined approach to complete facial rejuvenation.

My patient is delighted with the natural looking results.  The improvements are very subtle but have made a big difference to her confidence. The overall effect is to achieve a full facial rejuvenation whilst still maintaining a natural and biologically true appearance. This is notoriously difficult to achieve.

My client list continues to grow through patient referrals and my practice has grown tenfold over the last 3 years. For my work to have been recognised in this way is a huge achievement of which I am really proud, but my true reward comes from making a real difference to my patients lives and confidence.”


Dr Pradnya Apté qualified as a Dental Surgeon in 1993 and started practising facial aesthetics in early 2007. She was trained in Harley Street, London, with the industry’s most highly regarded Aesthetic Practitioners.

Her passion for Facial Aesthetics increased so much so that she opened her first Clinic, Skin Southwest, in 2015 in Exeter and started her second Clinic in London the following year.

In the past few years, Pradnya has built up a loyal patient base that even come from all over the world to see her for treatment as exemplified by her skills in achieving a natural rejuvenation of the face. Pradnya says ‘ I see faces as 3 dimensional structures that require careful and skilled injecting techiniques to achieve a harmonious balance’.

She has also won a Highly Commended Award for Full Face Treatment at the prestigious Aesthetic Dentistry Awards this year and has been a Finalist in this category  in 2017 and for the Perioral Area in 2018.

She also contributes to Professional Press Journals such as Aesthetic Medicine and recently trademarked her combined approach to complete facial rejuvenation with Silhouette Soft threads and Ellanse Collagen stimulators and called it the ‘rejuvalift’.

Pradnya is recognised as one of the UK’s leading Aesthetic Practitioners and last year retired from the Dental Profession to pursue her dream of doing Aesthetics Full time.

Silhouette Soft

Silhouette Soft, is the only non-surgical option to lift the face and defy the skin’s gravitational pull instantly. The results are immediate and noticeable, skin looks lifted but natural and results continue to improve over the coming months. The cones on the threads actually stimulate the body to produce its own collagen, helping increase the volume of saggy areas, restoring shapeliness to the face gradually to produce a nuanced and biologically-true appearance.
