WEST Dorset and East Devon are catching up with the rest of the country for cosmetic treatment, according to a doctor now working in Lyme Regis.Body Genesis, which runs regular clinics at the Kent House Health Centre, in Silver Street, held its open day last week - showing use of Botox, lasers and fillers - and claims to fill the "NHS gap".Qualified cosmetic doctor Susan Davies said: "It's great we can hold treatments here. "Quite a few people have said 'at last - we no longer have to travel to Bristol or Exeter'."The West Country has been a little bit behind the rest of the country, but anything that makes people feel better about themselves is important. "You can have lots of pretty frocks, but if you don't like your face, it's no help."Body Genesis holds thorough consul-tations and safety is a prime concern.Dr Davies rents space in the health centre and is not part of Dr Forbes Watson's practice.
