Real Client Story

"Having great skin means that I feel healthy and confident. When I turned 48 is really when I started to notice a difference in my skin. Putting on makeup felt different, not as much elasticity. Working with quality products and treatments makes the world of difference." 

- Justine, 52

"Most of my clients in their 40s and 50s say they want to improve their eyes, the sagginess and the pigmentation. But every face is different and we take a total face approach to ensure the best result for you. Our aim is always beautification of the face and to make you look natural."

- Lisa Sullivan-Smith, Director & Co-Founder

Common questions

What happens to skin in the 40s & 50s?

As we age, we naturally lose collagen and elastin, fat pads in the face drop and facial features start to descend. Unfortunately these are natural changes which we have no control over. Clients often notice

  • More pronounced lines and wrinkless
  • Skin can feel thin and saggy
  • Pigmentation and dark spots increase
  • Eye area becomes hooded
  • Drooping or loose skin, particularly on the lower face known as 'jowling' or around the neck.
  • Dryness increases
Why do I look so tired?

As we get older, volume loss in the face causes skin to become looser, droppy and saggy. We use Dermal Fillers to correct age related volume loss with optimal results. By targeting specific areas of the mid-face, we can help reposition and gently lift the area and the results can last for up to two years. 

My eyes are hooded, what can I do?

We can use Anti-Wrinkle Injections in the glabella area (forehead, between the eyebrows) which is the biggest and safest area to treat. The end result is a gentle lift in the brows to elevate heaviness and provide a natural, rested look.

What happens at my first visit?

The first step to start your skincare journey is to book a consultation with our registered nurses. They will assess your skin and devise a custom treatment plan. Usually we start with an exfoliation treatment, such as the Blueberry Peel to improve the condition of the skin and give you an instant refresh before adding in more corrective treatments such as Tightening or Injectables. All our team are medically trained and experts in their field so you can trust you are in safe hands.
