Rosacea can be managed with success.

AHA light skin peels
Oxygen skin treatments
Gentle vitamin skin infusions
LED light treatments
UV radiation (amongst other things) ages skin, especially those with fair complexions who have less natural protection.

I find the staff, environment, products and the technician (Linda) to be of an excellent standard. Friendly, approachable and professional.
I have been going to Linda for years. She provides an outstanding service combining her skills, professionalism and the use of products proven to get results. There is no hard sell here. The results speak for themselves. I regularly receive very positive feedback on my skin and continue to recommend Linda to others.
Hi Linda, thank you so much for your help with my skin. I’m sending you a testimony in support of the work you do: “I used to hate my skin and had almost accepted nice skin wasn’t for me, and never left the house without make-up. Having followed Linda’s recommended skin regimen my skin is now something I can enjoy ..make up or not!”
Until I started going to Linda I believed that there was no such service available – sure I had been to beauticians for a feel-good pampering, but I was always aware that it never actually made any measurable difference to my skin. However, since going to Linda my skin is smoother and never dry anymore, the wrinkles are less visible and I’ve had no acne in that whole year. (Even my husband has noticed the improved quality of my skin.)
Linda customizes treatments per visit so I feel very comfortable knowing I am getting more than just a visit to the beauty therapist
“Linda is very knowledgeable and she has provided very good service. Always responded quickly to any queries I’ve had and suitable products and treatments recommended”
My skin is amazing! My husband has seen such a difference that he wants to have a talk with you for getting the same for himself. Thank you so much – couldn’t be more thrilled.
