VIVA Skin Clinics

Dr. Rupert Critchley BM MRCGP is Lead Clinician, Founder and Director of VIVA Skin Clinics.

Qualifying as a medical doctor in 2009, he is a fully qualified and experienced General Practitioner. Since beginning his medical career he also developed a passion for aesthetics which led him to establish his own industry leading clinic, VIVA Skin Clinics. Dr. Rupert’s belief in using injectable treatments to help patients feel comfortable, centered and empowered in the skin they are in, is at the core of the practice; VIVA is all about using dermal fillers to achieve beautiful, natural looking results.

Dr. Rupert has also been selected to be part of the Allergan faculty and has successfully completed a mentorship programme with Dr. Mauricio de Maio. Furthermore, he regularly conducts training for other medical professionals, delivers presentations on behalf of Allergan and trials products and treatments. Keeping his own skills and knowledge up to date and passing this experience on to other injectors is something he takes great pride in. Using his 10 years’ experience in aesthetics as a force for change in the industry as a whole is something he feels extremely passionate about as he continues to advocate the safest and most effective treatments.

Dr. Rupert has recently been appointed as a Trustee for BCAM (The British College of Aesthetic Medicine), the UK’s leading representative body for doctors and dentists practising aesthetic medicine.

“It’s an absolute privilege to be selected as a Trustee for BCAM. I love achieving beautiful, natural looking results for my own patients but I am also passionate about creating change in the UK aesthetics industry as a whole. I believe in improving safety standards and regulations, standardising training pathways and educating responsible injectors to help this industry evolve. I look forward to joining BCAM on this exciting and important journey.” – Dr. Rupert

A registered nurse with years of aesthetic experience, Eva's approach to non-surgical treatments is fuelled by her passion for overall skin health and wellbeing.

Prior to joining VIVA Skin Clinics, Eva worked with high-end dermatologists, helping them to administer dermatological and non-surgical treatments. Coming from this background of medical skincare, Eva is fantastically equipped to assess not only the current condition of patients’ skin, but also the causes of certain skin concerns and what can be done in a lifestyle respect to achieve the best possible complexion.

With a deep understanding of how the skin works, what can trigger common concerns and how to treat them effectively, Eva specialises in crafting bespoke treatment plans with a focus on skin health. This allows patients to enjoy instant results from her specialist, in-clinic treatments, and then maintain those with the expert guidance and prescription-only skincare.

Alongside skin treatments, Eva produces beautiful dermal filler and anti-wrinkle results, as well as offering the injectable moisturiser treatment Profhilo. For all treatments, please see our price list.

“Good skin starts from within but there are so many incredibly effective treatments available now which can give you a head start. My focus with any non-surgical procedure is to create noticeable yet natural results which the patients love – it’s all about tailoring any VIVA experience and making it unique.” – Eva
