Update on COVID-19 - 22 Mar 2020
Due to health reasons and the safety of ourselves and our clients we have had to make the decision to close the clinic for one month from (Monday 23rd March).
We have been advised by medical professionals that due the close proximity and duration of the time spent with each client, this puts us and you at a dangerously high risk of contracting the virus.
If you have an appointment booked soon with us we will be in contact to rearrange this. We hope you all understand and apologise for any inconvenience this causes.
Wishing you all good health. Sarah and Marcus

New Products for 2018
We have very exciting news!
We now offer a full range of facial and body treatments and products and are well known for our results-driven skincare for face and body.
From April 2018, we will be offering treatments with the ACCOR Plasma Pen, which gives customers the most amazing results, normally only achieved by surgery. So we now have a natural alternative to botox and fillers.
Plasma pen treatment is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure for skin cleaning and skin rejuvenation problem areas. In the past the only method to treat these areas effectively was with ‘surgical blepharoplasty’. However since the introduction of this innovative technology in 2014, we can now perform safe and results driven skin tightening procedures without the need for needles.
The revolutionary technology removes excess skin by a process called sublimation. The extremely accurate instrument works by creating a plasma (electric) arc which works by heating the skin and creating increased collagen formation locally. The treatment does not use a scalpel or a laser to remove excess skin, thereby avoiding all risks inherent to the traditional intervention.
The treatment is performed without cutting, burning or removing excess skin or fat.
If you are unhappy with the skin around your eyes, or with baggy lower eyelids, or droopy upper eyelid skin and you do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure plasma pen may be the treatment for you.
What Can I Expect?
A typical session will last around 30 to 45 minutes, although patients are required to attend the appointment an hour prior to the actual procedure to have topical numbing cream applied to the area to be treated. Patients may experience swelling and mild discomfort in the treated area following your treatment and this may last up to three days. Crustations will resolve within 5-7 days, but can be covered with liquid foundation.
We will discuss your treatment and what you can expect during your consultation. Most people see noticeable results after the first treatment, although some may require more than one treatment and this is subject to your personal expectation. A bespoke treatment plan will be discussed with you during your initial consultation session.
