Dr Joshua Van der Aa
Award-winning and highly sought after, cosmetic doctor Dr Joshua Van der Aa is one of the newest injection-focused practitioners to open a clinic in Harley Street and widely regarded as one to watch: already with more than 600 five-star-rated reviews. With his trademarked signature eye treatment under his belt, as well as a number of appearances in the national press, he’s unquestionably making his mark.
Dr Joshua is renowned for his specialist work in non-surgical eye rejuvenation, including upper eyelid filler for treating hollowing or asymmetry, tear trough filler as well as his signature look, InclinEyes.
Dr Joshua qualified as a medical doctor from Leuven University, Belgium, in 2017 and went on to do a postgraduate dental degree with a view to specialising in maxillofacial surgery. But it was early in his studies that he discovered his skill – and passion – for injectables and decided to change course and concentrate solely on medical aesthetics.
After working in some of the biggest and best-known tweakments establishments in The Netherlands and London, he opened his own injection-focused clinic early in 2020, making him the youngest aesthetics specialist in Harley Street with his own practice.
Patients flock to Dr Joshua for his consistently natural and elegant results as well as his personable and comprehensive approach to consultations; he has already amassed more than 600 five-star-rated, verified reviews since going solo. His manner and skills make him particularly popular with nervous first-timers of all ages. In fact, he insists that, if he doesn’t consider a procedure beneficial or necessary, he won’t treat.
These days, he’s spending a growing proportion of his time reversing poorly administered work done elsewhere and is a vocal critic of trend-led and more extreme-looking procedures both on social and traditional media, including appearances in the national press.
In the summer of 2021, he unveiled his first, trademarked signature treatment InclinEyes, which offers a neat new way to reposition the brow tails, gently lifting and reshaping the eye tilt for that desirable almond-eye shape. Eyes look beautifully refreshed and more youthful with this effective, reversible and much less dramatic-looking alternative to Fox Eye threads.
If he’s not injecting or busy advancing his skills in the latest techniques, he’s treating patients who experience signs of hair thinning or loss, or treating skin disorders such as acne and psoriasis. His clinic also offers EMsculpt body contouring.
Highly skilled, Dr Joshua has been recognised for his work as an Aesthetic Awards finalist in 2022 for Rising Star of the Year and Best New Clinic and in 2023 for Best Non-surgical Result. He is the winner of the 2022 Aesthetic Medicine Award for Best Social Media.
Outside of his work with patients, he recently starred in Belgium television’s most-watched show, The Sky Is The Limit: a reality docu-series following the cream of the country’s entrepreneurs at work and play.
