Do you recognise your own beauty?

Do you recognise your own beauty? If someone asked you to describe yourself, what would you say? Do you see the beauty in yourself?

Welcome back Beth!

Welcome back Beth! We’re very happy to have Beth (senior aesthetician/therapist) back after 2 weeks leave for her Septorhinoplasty. Beth’s been kind enough to share her experience of her recent cosmetic surgery and share pictures with us… #loveyourself #confidence #empowering #lovingyou I have been self-conscious about my nose since the age of 16. I’ve gained confidence with age (and discovered contouring ) so would no longer get upset by it but I still wasn’t happy.  I finally decided in October 2016 that I would make the move to go ahead with the procedure. I did some research, made some enquiries, decided on where I would go for my consultation and spoke to others who had the same procedure done.  After my first consultation I was 100% sure I wanted to go ahead with it. I booked an appointment with my surgeon the following month. Sr Lahoud answered all my questions before I’d asked them, drew diagrams to explain the Septorhinoplasty procedure and discussed what we would change and realistic results. I have scar tissue from a previous operation and that can make it harder to get my desired results. We then booked the operation and pre-op.

Redensity I treatments with Haley

Today Staff Nurse Haley is talking about Redensity I. Redensity I is a light dermal filler with a unique combination of Hyaluronic Acid, powerful Antioxidents, Minerals, Vitamins and Amino Acids. It restores balance by adequately nourishing the skin from within allowing your skin rehydration, protection and redensification. Hyaluronic Acid is an essential skin component. It acts like a sponge that retains water, keeps the skin moisturised, plumped and healthy. The treatment is performed by Nurse Haley. To begin a numbing cream will be applied to cleansed skin. Once removed Haley will preform microinjections to the treatment area to ensure the product is spread evenly into the skin. Redensity I can be used to treat the face, neck, chest and hands. A course of 3 treatments 3-4 weeks apart is recommended and approximately 2 treatments per year to maintain the results. In combination with this treatment Haley is keen to promote appropriate and effective skincare at home. She always takes time to recommend a skincare regime that suits your individual needs. A course of 3 treatments is £550 or each 1ml syringe is £200.

Introduction to #FacialWeek with founder and owner of No.6, Samantha Clarke

“THE FACIAL, it forms our whole philosophy…” Maintaining healthy skin is essential in keeping a fresh, youthful complexion through the decades and this is at the very core of our ethos of No.6.  Samantha saw after working in the industry for a few years as an Aesthetic Nurse that the eternal quest for youth, injectables and surgery were often being performed with unnatural and even scary results. “At this stage probably 14 years ago” Samantha says, “I became very interested in the new cosmeceutical product ranges that were emerging, which claimed to renew skin cells, stimulate collagen and elastin without any recovery or downtime. I tried out all the products I could and grilled the founders about the science and the results. I was obsessed!! In 2005 I was confident enough to branch out on my own. I rented a room in a local medical practice, took out a small bank loan, did the minimum order on MD formulation skincare and leased the Omnilux machine. Word seemed to spread and within six months I was doing an average of five Power Facials a day. The results spoke for themselves. Client numbers were growing and I was finding that those having
