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

The rise of male hair removal

Nearly all of the treatments offered at No.6 are suitable for men as well as women, but due to client demand we are working on adding extra treatments to our extensive menu so that we can offer the highest quality of appointments, particularly aimed at male skin and grooming. Stay tuned for male facials and grooming treatments to be revealed soon. A treatment already popular with our male clients is the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), ideal for those wanting a hair-free back, smooth chest or hairless back of the neck. Here at No.6 Clinic we have seen an increase in male clients opting for this treatment for many reasons, including wanting to avoid painful ingrown hairs and razor burns – which men are more prone to because their hair is thicker and coarser. Lifestyles are also meaning that people are now demanding long-lasting results and with IPL, after each treatment you can expect to be hair free for up to six weeks, then experiencing a full reduction within a course of treatments, six sessions. This method of hair removal is also more cost and time effective, as well as being less painful than alternatives. Win, win!

Q&A with Doctor Natasha Gilani

1. Tell us about the importance of visiting a medical-led team in a clinical environment? At No 6 our aesthetic team of doctors, nurses and therapists work closely together to offer our patients a holistic approach to their aesthetic needs. We believe it is important to have a clinician-led team to ensure all our patients are treated safely and appropriately. Ethical practice is our gold standard and we do not treat any patients unnecessarily. Proper patient counselling and addressing the patients concerns is an essential part of our consultation process. 2. What should I expect from a first visit? At your first appointment we aim to address your particular concerns and offer you appropriate solutions. We will also undertake a detailed medical history of any past and present health concerns, operations, medications, allergies and previous aesthetic treatments. We will discuss the treatment options offered to you, their side effects, expected results, costs and after-care advice. You may have a treatment if you wish and if you feel you have had time to consider all the information given to you. We strongly encourage you to take time to think about having any procedures and the final decision if very much yours not ours. 3. Why do I

No.6, 10 Years In Business As A Doctor-Led Aesthetic Clinic

Some cosmetic procedures do not involve surgery, but this does not mean they’re without risk! Cosmetic injectable treatments should only be carried out by an appropriately trained Doctor, or registered Aesthetic Nurse in a clinical environment. The General Medical Council rule that Doctors must initially meet patients face-to-face before prescribing anti-ageing injectables to make sure they fully understand their medical history and reasons for wanting the treatment. After the initial treatment, registered Aesthetic Nurses can then administer the following but the Doctor always needs to prescribe. Others offering injections do not have the necessary skills, training, qualifications or understanding of your facial structure. With a growing demand for injectables treatments, it has been worrying for No.6’s Doctor Gilani, and Aesthetic Nurse Samantha, to have seen the media uncover people purporting to be registered professionals carrying out non-surgical treatments. As a result, there is a growing demand for clear legislation to protect patients and underpin the work of reputable cosmetic medical professionals.
