Quvent, trading as Luxe Skin by Doctor Q, is a doctor-led cosmetic clinic based in Glasgow. Offering beauty treatments and cosmetic procedures from facials to facelifts, with excellent consultations and aftercare with the aim of enhancing people's emotional wellbeing through addressing aesthetic concerns. Regulated by Healthcare Improvement Scotland and acclaimed by WhatClinic.com. The funds raised will facilitate the opening of a new, high-end store in Edinburgh.

Age your own way

Luxe Skin by Doctor Q was established by our founder, Dr Usman Qureshi, who spotted a lack of doctor-led cosmetic clinics in Scotland with boutique offerings. As an experienced GP, Dr Qureshi (affectionately known as Dr Q) saw that practices were unable to carry out more advanced treatments, so set up a clinic in Glasgow. Our store has gone from strength to strength organically, built on a foundation of good reputation and a personal touch. In fact, we're regulated by Healthcare Improvement Scotland to ensure we upkeep our high standards, and have been acclaimed by WhatClinic.com for our customer service and '5 star treatment'.

We understand that cosmetic procedures aren't entered into lightly and therefore before beginning, our team takes the time to understands the reasons and expectations every patient has. Ultimately, our aim is to better people's emotional wellbeing by helping them become enhanced versions of themselves, so our treatments address a variety of aesthetic concerns. We offer beauty treatments such as facials, lash tinting, waxing, and massages. Our cosmetic procedures include botox and facelifts, dermal and lip fillers, nose reshaping, and many more; we also sell prescriptive skincare products, which can get enjoy a discount off when you invest.

Following the success of our Glasgow clinic, attracting clients from the west of Scotland, we're now setting up a second location in Edinburgh to attract the East coast and tourist market. We want to open a clinic in the city centre to benefit from a high footfall. This clinic will be fitted to a luxury hotel standard to attract the top end of the market. We will continue to pioneer our leading treatments and establish ourselves as industry experts as we expand.

A. Hi Angus. Prices were raised to increase margins thus increasing gross profit. The fixed costs and admin expenses were consolidated amongst other businesses in the group thus reducing expenses. Higher turnover allowed for discounted pricing from suppliers. Basically fixed costs controlled, margins increased, discounted pricing from suppliers and out sourcing some services on a 'pay as you go' basis to reduce variable costs.

A. Most doctors work at several locations. There are doctors who travel working in London, Dubai and Europe. The doctor led cosmetic treatments are not done all day everyday. So the week would be split between Edinburgh and Glasgow. Therapists are also employed in the clinic who carry out machine based treatments and other cosmetic procedures
