We offer the following facial aesthetic Treatments:
Our highly trained and award winning practitioner Karen Lockett can deliver facial treatments. Laughter, worry and frown lines are caused by repeated contraction of the facial muscles. Our injections are purified protein (Botox®) that causes temporary relaxation, preventing the muscles from overly contracting. The aim is to create a natural result, giving a more youthful appearance whilst retaining a normal expression.
A free initial consultation is offered to undertake a thorough facial analysis and a detailed discussion to understand your personal needs. Treatment takes 15 to 20 minutes and you can go back to daily life immediately. We can often carry out treatment on the day of the consultation.
Most people will have two or three treatments in the first year and eventually may require just one maintenance treatment per year. Treat yourself to a more youthful appearance today with this simple, safe and popular procedure.
Dermal fillers enhance facial appearance by restoring the skin’s volume, smoothing away wrinkles, enhancing and shaping lips, defining facial contours and revitalizing the quality of the skin. They are clear gels made of hyaluronic acid (HA). These are found naturally in our bodies and bind to water therefore enhancing the skins elasticity and volume. We use Sculptra and Radiesse which are well established products.
Areas treated with dermal fillers include;
Lip Treatments can include fine lines above lip, volumising upper and lower lips
Mouth to Jaw lines
Nose to Side of Mouth lines
Backs of Hands

Skin needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is based on the skins natural ability to repair itself through cuts, burns and other abrasions. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skins self-repair mechanism by creating micro-injuries which trigger new collagen synthesis. There is no risk of scarring and is ideal for ageing skin. It will help to:
- Restore skin firmness and tightness
- thicken the dermis and help smooth wrinkles
- Improves skin texture and large pore scarring
- Reduces the appearance of indented acne scars and pits
Skin needling produces similar results to deep chemical peels but is much less invasive and does not require the removal of the skins surface. As a result healing time is shorter and there is no post treatment sensitivity to UV light.
We use titanium needles, which are the gold standard in skin needling.
Peels can be used to improve skin texture and tone as well as reducing fine lines and improving acne damaged skin. We offer the Neostrata range of peels: their “Skin rejuvenation system” (SRS), compromising of free-glycolic acid peel treatments is a professional use only system.
Thread veins often appear on the legs and can often be unsightly and distressing. The gold standard for treating thread veins on the legs is Microsclerotherapy. This involves injecting a small amount of scerosing solution into the superficial vessel with a very fine needle. This needs to be followed by medical grade compression stockings that need to be worn for 7-10 days following treatment. Most normal activities can be resumed immediately.
PDO THREAD LIFTS
This is a non-surgical face and neck lift which tightens the skin by stimulating new collagen production which in turn creates volume and tightens pores. This treatment uses special PDO threads which are made from Polydioxanone.
Areas that can be treated with PDO threads are: Jaw Line, Neck, Cheeks, Forehead and Lower Face.
EXCESSIVE SWEATING (HYPERHYDROSIS)
Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis can affect the daily lives of people who suffer with this condition. It can be both uncomfortable and embarrassing. This can be effectively treated with Botox®. This treatment can last up to 12 months.
