“I was happy with the cosmetic injection practictioner I had used on a few occasions previously (and was recommended to me) so I was reluctant to try someone new. I am glad I did as the service and end result was fantastic. Everything was explained to me and I received a comprehensive consultation and was put at ease. The clinic is clean and welcoming. The procedure was quick and painless and the results look great. I’d recommend to anyone who is having coesmtic injectables for the first time or who is already a regular cosmetic injectable user.“

    I am absolutely delighted with my Botox treatment I had with Dr Stephen Humble at The Maple Leaf Clinic. I found Dr Humble extremely knowledgeable and he completely put my mind at rest giving me realistic expectations and explaining everything involved with the procedure at my free consultation. This gave me the confidence to have the procedure and I was pleasantly surprised how painless it was, quick and with outstanding results!! There was no down time and it has given me a much more radiant look with a subtle reduction in the appearance of wrinkles around my eyes. I highly recommend booking an appointment to have a consultation with Dr Humble. Dr Stephen Humble if you are interested in having any Botox or Fillers.
