What Our Customers Say
For a number of years I have been going to the Beauty Lodge and it would be difficult to find a better place. Sarah knows her trade and before she commences on any procedure she explains fully what it will incur and the benefits. it is always a joy to go to such an immaculate and well equipped salon with a lady who clearly know her business and keeps up to date with the latest ideas.

I'm 14 years old and I came to Beauty Lodge to have the Dermalogica teen acne facial. I haven't got severe acne however, I struggle with my breakouts and oily skin. Sarah was very professional and gave me great advice on how to treat it at home. I was given a few samples from the Dermalogica skincare range and have used them for two weeks. My skin has improved immensely and I am a lot more confident without wearing makeup, it has reduced the oils in my skin along with minimising the texture on my face. The treatment was very relaxing and I loved the light therapy. I will definitely be rebooking this treatment and I recommend this to anyone in a similar situation.

I have seen Sarah for several different beauty treatments over the past two years and what a blessing!!! I have visited various salons in the past, but from my first consultation with Sarah I was extremely impressed with her level of professionalism, experience and sound good advice. Her salon is extremely clean, stylish and beautifully equipped with the most advanced equipment. Sarah has a lovely calm, caring and gentle nature, which immediately reassures and dispels any anxious concerns. Her sense of humour is infectious and adds to the whole experience. I don't write reviews, but felt compelled to on this occasion as Sarah deserves it. I have very sensitive and dry skin and have tried several good quality brands - all with differing results. A month ago I changed my skin care product, yet again, because of sensitivity, but my face and neck reacted by developing red, sore patches of exema making the condition even worse. Three days ago I contacted Sarah for advice. She unhesitatingly arranged to see me quickly in order to observe the condition and recommend some Dermalogica products to calm the situation down. Dermalogica is the skin care brand that Sarah has used personally and professionally in her Salon for years. From the first application, all the exema patches responded and have continued to do so. Again, another reason to be grateful to Sarah and her wealth of experience. Thank you Sarah. Sue Barker 20th September 2017

I am a Transgender patient of Sarah's, I was required to find an Electrolysis to work on my surgical site and found Sarah on the British institute of electrolysis site. I made my appointment with Sarah and we got on like a house on fire, With her professional and friendly manor she made me feel so at ease with what I was about to go through and Sarah was very easy to talk to taking my mind off what was happening in those sensitive spots. Sarah is an official NHS provider for electrolysis which has helped me and will help others going through the same experience as myself making her great service even better. I could not be happier for what she did for me. Thank you Sarah for all you have done.

I discovered Beauty Lodge after seeing an advert in a local magazine called “Community Life”. This discovery changed my life for the better. I am a Black female and I have suffered from Dermatosis Papulosis Nigra (DPN) for most of my adult life. These are small dark raised areas on the face. Mainly around my eyes and cheeks, like Morgan Freeman. I felt very unattractive and lost confidence in my appearance; until I went to see Sarah the miracle worker. Sarah is lovely, a true professional. My skin looks really good now and Sarah has celebrated with me every step of the way. To anyone considering treatment; I have no hesitation in recommending Sarah, she is an expert in her field. Thank you Sarah for restoring my confidence.
Paula Williams, N/A , 29 Jan 2017
I am a transgender patient of Sarah's that has been seeing her for over a year for hair removal for both the face and surgical site. Her professional and friendly manner made me feel at ease from the very beginning and she clearly has exceptional understanding of hair removal. She's very easy to talk to and we have quite a laugh which really helps when getting "zapped" in sensitive spots. In the time I have been seeing Sarah she has invested in new equipment, training and has become an official NHS provider for electrolysis making her great service even better.
Stacy Povey, 22 Jan 2017
I highly recommend Sarah, she is a people person and incredibly knowledgeable in her field. I have had many different treatments from Sarah over recent years but I have just had my first electrolysis treatment. After a short consultation Sarah performed the treatment with minimal discomfort. I hadn’t even realised my problem could be treated with electrolysis. I couldn’t be happier, thank you Sarah.
Sam, 19 Sep 2016
I started seeing Sarah at Beauty Lodge for microdermabrasion after my old salon closed. She's lovely and a real pleasure to be treated by, as she has the time and patience to answer any questions, and a friendly and relaxing manner. The treatment room is modern, bright and airy. Can't recommend her highly enough.
Nicola, 22 Jul 2016
I had wart removed from my face it has completely gone and I am so happy I wish I knew about Sarah and the Beauty Lodge years ago. I was so happy with my treatment and the results I have been back and had some thread veins removed.
Tina, 26 Jun 2016
I have visited Sarah on several occasions and find her to be flawless in her approach. She is friendly and puts you at ease, never rushing and always takes time to talk through the treatment and make sure you are happy before proceeding. She has a calming and ultra professional manner and is very knowledgeable answering all question patiently (and I had lots!) She is on the end of the phone at any time and when I needed to change an appointment was very flexible about it. Always wearing a smile, Sarah is a charming, professional therapist who makes you feel like you are her only client! The surroundings are private and relaxing too. I would highly recommend her and having experienced other therapists over time, I can personally vouch for her ethics and talents. You won't be disappointed! Thanks again Sarah.
Teresa Brooks, 15 Feb 2016
I went to Beauty Lodge after seeing an advert in 'Community Life' and it was a very good decision. The atmosphere in her treatment room was calming and comfortable, and Sarah assessed my needs (electrolysis to remove sun damaged areas on chest and face) and totally removed them. After four weeks I have some feint pink areas where the larger areas were treated, but no mark at all after just two weeks where the smaller ones were. Thank you, Sarah, for your friendly, professional manner and effective treatment.
Sue, 09 Feb 2016
I have been seeing Sarah for electrolysis work for body hair removal. I have found her to be professional, thorough and efficient. The results have also been superb - regrowth is very slow and I am confident that hair growth will soon have stopped completely. Thanks, Sarah!
Brent Hudson, 09 Feb 2016
For some time I have looked for someone to finish the electrolysis I started a while ago. How lucky I have been to find The Beauty Lodge. Sarah is very skilful and fully trained and with a small amount of Emla Cream the treatments are relatively pain free. I met a friend o mine the other who had just had some electrolysis some where else, and I was appalled at the state her skin was left in and recommended Sarah to her at once. Take it from me I've also had some bad work done so I know that Sarah's is of the highest standard of care/skill and hygiene.
Penny Cox, 08 Feb 2016
Electrolysis treatment. I have had a few sessions of Electrolysis from Sarah, and am delighted with the results [removing unwanted facial hair]. I trust her judgement and I feel confident she will only do what is necessary. One of the best aspects of Sarah's work ethic, is that I know I can always consult her and get an honest opinion. February 2016
Penny, 08 Feb 2016
Sarah is such a lovely lady. She's professional and very meticulous. The wax she's uses for 'more sensitive areas' is magical. Almost painless ;-) I can highly recommend her and her services! xx
Viki, 13 Dec 2015
I went to see Sarah to find out if some unsightly brown patches could be removed using electrolysis. After an examination the marks were diagnosed as sebaceous warts and they could be removed quickly and easily with a minimum of discomfort and this proved to be the case. Some straightforward aftercare was recommended and within ten days they had disappeared. I have since had another wart treated and this was also successfully removed in the same professional and caring manner. Thank you Sarah.
Eric Cartwright, 21 Sep 2015
I have been seeing Sarah for the removal of skin tags and seborreic warts, the treatment has been carried out in a professional and caring manner and I am very happy with the results. Sarah explained fully the treatment and after care. The treatment room is very relaxing and clean. I would be very happy and confident in recommending Sarah.
Sally Loughlin, 15 Sep 2015
A mutual friend recommended Beauty Lodge and Sarah to me a few months ago as I wanted to have several skin tags removed and a sebaceous wart removed from my hand. Sarah was so reassuring and talked me through the whole procedure to make sure I knew what was happening at every stage. I can't explain what a difference this has made to my self confidence about my skin over the summer months. The outcome on my hand has been amazing it's as if the wart was never there!! I have felt able to wear summer dresses and low tops without worrying about my skin tags on show. Wonderful!!
Lindsay Walkace, 14 Sep 2015
I went to see Sarah of Beauty Lodge, she removed some unwanted skin tags. Sarah was very professional, quick and efficient as well as being very friendly. The service was great, she even rang me a couple of weeks later to see how i had healed. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family. Thank you Sarah
Paul Driver, 13 Sep 2015
I've just visited Sarah for the first time, for a St Tropez tan, which I'm really happy with. Sarah is knowledgeable and inspires confidence - I will definitely be coming back for more treatments.
Liz, Liz McMahon, 03 Jun 2015
I had been looking for somebody to remove my unsightly seborrhoeic warts for a few years and came upon Sarah's advert. She is a very professional person and has dealt with and is still dealing with my facial problem for which I am very grateful. I don't have to pull my hair over my forehead anymore....hooray! Sarah has also helped me with advice and dermalogica products to improve the condition of my skin. The facial treatments using dermalogica are just wonderful and your skin feels very refreshed. Thank you Sarah for your expertise and help.
Elaine Jones, 29 May 2015
I am so glad that Sarah was recommended to me by a friend. I have had thread veins all over my face for many years which has meant having to wear an awful lot of foundation ( and I am not really a make up kind of girl! ) so discovering electrolysis has been a wonderful thing, each treatment I have I see them disappearing in front of my eyes & my confidence has grown. Sarah is such a lovely lady and so knowledgeable and her treatment room is really relaxing. If I had known about this treatment I would have had it done a long time ago. I highly recommend Sarah.
Debbie Collyer, 27 May 2015
I have visited Sarah on several occasions for a variety of treatments and I can honestly say I wouldn't go anywhere else now. I changed beauty therapists to specifically see her, as her knowledge and expertise is second to none and that's the most important thing when you are trusting someone with your skin and body. Sarah is fun to be around and lifts your spirits the moment you see her. Always 100% professional and her gorgeous salon is so welcoming and relaxing - like you're cocooned in a little place away from the hustle of everyday life. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to friends, family or even the lady next to me in the supermarket check out!
Emma Watson, Specky & Ginge Social Media, 06 May 2015
I met a lovely lady at a monthly networking meeting, Sarah Thomas, it was obvious to me hearing lots of positive feedback from other ladies at the meeting, that Sarah is a master in her field. With this in mind I booked an appointment to have a rather large skin tag removed from my neck. The whole process was over in minutes and was not an uncomfortable procedure. 6 days after the procedure, the skin tag dropped off and I have been left with a smooth scar free neck. I would totally recommend the services of Sarah Thomas.
Suzanne Bywater, Appletree Interiors, 05 May 2015
Sarah is AMAZING!
My best friend gave me a gift voucher to use for some treatments for my birthday and it was the best present ever. Not only is Sarah a lovely person but she is so knowledgeable and quite inspiring too. I have had 2 facials so far (power active & super active) and I noticed the difference in my skin straight away after both treatments.
I have booked more treatments with Sarah before my wedding this summer and will continue to do so. Sarah really spends time and effort with her treatments and it's a totally relaxing experience in a lovely setting. If you want to feel truly pampered I highly recommend you go and see Sarah...she is worth every penny :)
Louise Moroney, 19 Feb 2015
I have been having various beauty treatments with Sarah for the last 8 years in her friendly and welcoming beauty salon I have been extremely pleased with my last treatment which has been the removal of age related moles, the final result has been quite amazing !!! Thank You Sarah
Kathy Holme, 14 Feb 2015
Sarah is warm, knowledgable and professional. The treatment room is beautifully presented and relaxing. I thoroughly recommend her.
Helen, 12 Feb 2015
I went to Sarah because my skin was in desperate need of some attention. Having seen the Beauty Lodge website I could see that Sarah had extensive experience with Dermalogica products and with that in mind I booked my first appointment. I started my treatment with the super active facial and then based on Sarah's expert advice I am now having the power active facial. My skin has never looked and felt so good. I've also treated myself to other treatments like the odd manicure and pedicure which have always been done with the same level of professionalism as my facials. The best thing is I always leave feeling like I've been pampered!
Thank you Sarah!
Keranjit Kaur, Dermalogica Facials, 19 Nov 2014
I have visited Sarah on a number of occasions now with the problem of facial hair and would like to say how delighted I am with the treatment I have received.
At the first consultation Sarah discussed with me in depth the various techniques available and which would suit me best. She also advised that this would not be an” instant cure” but rather a progressive treatment to completely eradicate the coarse hairs on my chin and upper lip.
I was completely put at ease by her very professional, caring, friendly manner and it was obvious that she had an in-depth knowledge of Electrolysis.
Every consultation in her immaculate, very well equipped salon has been painless, relaxing and actually enjoyable. This is mainly due to Sarah’s expert skill but also to her infectious happy nature and sense of humour. One leaves with a complete feeling of well- being.
To anyone considering Electrolysis I would have no hesitation in recommending Sarah as she is obviously an expert in this field.
I no longer have to hide behind my hand in embarrassment so thank you Sarah for restoring my confidence.
Lesley Dick, Electrolysis, 01 Nov 2014
just wanted to say that I am so glad I was introduced to you and your treatments with the genie machine.
As I explained to you due to back problems I was unable to do sit ups, the genie machine solved this problem. Having the 10 treatments on my abdomen and thighs has made so much difference to my body that I cannot believe.
As you know it was my daughters wedding, my one big wish was to look better in my wedding outfit, well I did. I looked better and felt better in myself and had so many lovely comments on the day that it was the icing on the cake (pardon the pun).
I am continuing with my diet and exercise regime that I was doing at home, but I will be continuing with the maintenance course with you. Also as I loose more weight I will be starting another course of 10 as soon as I can.
I feel like a new me! My clothes are fitting better, in fact I can now get into clothes that felt rather snug before I started my genie course, I even have clothes now that are quite loose which is the best feeling in the world.
Thank you for all your help and support in these last few weeks, I am off on my holiday next week but will be contacting you as soon as I get back to arrange my next session.
Kim Shayler, Genie Complete Body Tone, 28 Oct 2014
As an Avid fan of new treatments and creams I was introduced to Dermalogica by Sarah Thomas. I have always maintained my skin with facials, vitamins and good creams so was quite excited to try this as over the years my skin has become more dehydrated with a few age spots and add changing hormones into the mix this has become more prominent.
Sarah explained in detail what the Dermalogica BioSurface skin peel would entail and although I knew it wouldn’t be painful I wasn’t expecting it to be as relaxing as it was due to the deep exfoliating process. I found it to be tingly but not painful and managed to have this done 5 times which is the maximum you can have in one session.
The aftercare was explained in detail and a package of creams to nourish and protect the skin was an extra bonus - I used these over the next week and had no flair ups with my skin.
The outcome of this facial was youthful , vibrant skin – It was glowing and soft . I even found that I could actually get away with not wearing much foundation. . I am now trying to have at least every month to keep that youthful glow and hydrated skin.
It Works !!
Sandra Tyler-Smith, Dermalogica BioSurface Peel, 24 Sep 2014
Having always suffered from spots and breakouts, I went to Sarah for a facial to try and reduce the amount of oil my skin was producing. She had an expert knowledge of the Dermalogica range and was able to tailor a facial especially for my skin. She talked me through the products she used as well as giving me some really useful advice on how I can help my skin myself. My skin felt amazing afterwards and is still glowing almost a week later. I shall definitely be going again in a few months and I would certainly recommend her to my friends.
Mandy Alison, Dermalogica Facials, 03 Sep 2014
I have had 8/9 electrolysis treatment sessions over the last 18 months, and I am just about ‘hair free’ on my chin – sheer delight!! It is necessary to be patient –and of course it is not practical to know how many treatments will be needed.
Sarah is a sensitive therapist, and it is very easy to chat to her about any facial concerns/issues. She is professional, focused and pragmatic –and I always feel better after any treatment I receive. She works in a lovely and comfortable room – it’s a real treat going to see her.
Penny Cooper, Electrolysis, 23 Jul 2014
I suffer with hayfever and general congestion issues but I'd had a head cold which just wasn't shifting. Sarah recommended I try a sinus drainage technique using the Genie Complete.
The treatment itself is totally painless - I could feel the odd mild tingling sensation from time to time.
During the treatment I could feel that something was happening and my congestion started to clear. When I went to bed that evening I was delighted to find, for the first time in over two weeks, I could breathe easily through my nose!
Sarah recommends a course of three of four treatments usually but I was amazed to find I only required the one! It has now been four weeks since my treatment and I am still clear. I recommend this to anyone who has sinus or congestion trouble and would definitely have it again if I need to.
T Goldsmith, Genie Complete Sinus Drainage, 28 Jun 2014
I rarely get the chance to enjoy ‘me’ time these days and really enjoyed my visit last week. I came away feeling energised, invigorated yet very relaxed after my facial and massage.
I love the Dermalogica products, love your technique and the way you tailored the treatments specifically to match my needs.
I have no hesitation in recommending you to family, friends or indeed anyone I meet. Thank you I’ll be back soon.
