Teens pursuing rich girl face demand Botox and Fillers

Shingi Marakike’s article in the Sunday Times addresses two VERY serious issues; the number of under 18s seeking cosmetic procedures AND the lack of regulation and under qualified practitioners offering treatments. Our medical team at the No.6 Clinic have seen these worrying problems first hand too. Here at the No.6 Clinic, we have a strict policy not to treat anyone under the age of 25, unless there is a clear medical indication. Physically, the full facial structure doesn’t finish forming until post-teen years and early Botox can have a profound effect. We feel passionate that there needs to be a legal age restriction implemented. Instead of injectables our Aestheticians can recommend top skincare products and a non-invasive facial programme to address our younger client’s individual concerns. Over the past few years, our Doctors and Aesthetic Nurses are unfortunately having to correct more procedures by inexperienced practitioners. Research is key! Read reviews and check to see if the clinic has D1 use with full liability insurance. We cannot stress enough, that if you are considering injectables, to ALWAYS go to a fully licensed medical aesthetic practice which has stringent policies and procedures in place. Don’t be tempted by cheaper prices as

Let us here at No.6 answer all your questions, put your mind at ease and explain how we use the highest quality product, Lycon wax on the market by our highly experienced No.6 therapists. Why is it the best? Lycon have specially formulated their waxes to be virtually pain free, with many people saying they would never have a non-Lycon wax once they’ve experienced a Lycon wax. There are many different formulas each have aromatherapy ingredients, to ensure your treatment is comfortable, soothing and gentle on even the most sensitive areas. Now you know which brand is best, let us share with you which Lycon wax we use at No.6. We use both strip/warm and hot/hard wax, although all of Lycons waxes have low working temperatures, so your skin won’t feel irritated or uncomfortable after your treatment. Those names are more of an out-dated industry term. Strip wax we use on areas such as eyebrows, legs and chest. We apply a thin layer over the unwanted hair, place a wax-strip over the top then remove in one, swift movement. Hot

Get Ready and Go! New facial and beauty package

After hearing all about the new facial and beauty package at twice-award winning No.6 in Tunbridge Wells, Get Ready and Go, I had to give it a try. I mean, who doesn’t want to be pampered and be set for a night out? No.6 launched their online booking system last year which meant that I could snap up an appointment conveniently. On arrival I was greeted by Josie, their lovely receptionist, and after finishing with her client Aesthetician Beth came to welcome me. The ladies told me that owner Samantha had developed this new package due to popular demand. No.6 pride themselves on listening to their clients and developing signature facial treatments to meet clients’ needs and give the best possible results and experience. Firstly, I enjoyed a relaxing facial which involved a thorough cleanse to remove my makeup and prepare the skin for the next step – a Vitamin C micro-peel based light exfoliator, which smelt divine. Vitamin C brightens the complexion and the beads gently exfoliate for a deep pore cleanse. The activator is then applied which dissolves the micro-beads and allows the Vitamin C to be absorbed at a deeper level, to refine and give the skin
