About Us

The art of the aesthetic practitioner is to enhance the innate charm of the face rather than simulate a plasticised ideal.

It is the skill of the practitioner to improve on what is natural but not to change the personality of the face.

Despite Clare’s teaching commitments for National Cosmetic Courses, all consultations, treatments and reviews are with Clare herself, who prides herself on providing a personal tailored package of care for all her patients.

“The most important part of any treatment is your consultation, which will include taking a detailed medical history, an assessment of your skin and discussion of your needs and expectations. This will enable you to understand the choices available and make informed treatment decisions, and is essential before a tailored treatment and maintenance plan can be put in place.  The consultation will also include a full costing for your initial treatment and for any maintenance treatments you may expect to have.

Product information will be provided along with some simple preparations you can make prior to your treatment to ensure optimisation of your treatment experience.”

Often treatments are staggered at no extra cost (and Savings Plans are available).  This not only provides a better result, but introduces improvement gradually.  Before and after photos provide a visible record of improvement and also enable accurate replication of treatments. A complimentary review will be booked for 1-2 weeks after your treatment.
