Had my Profhilo treatment here, and as always the service is second to none. I have had numerous treatments here including Botox, Derma fillers, and a facial peel, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my treatments. Highly recommended!

Elizabeth & her team are a cut above the rest. The treatments on offer are leading the way in non surgical facial aesthetics as far as I’m concerned. Every time I have visited, I have felt totally at ease, knowing I’m in safe hands. My most recent visit, I had the brand new Profhilo injection treatment over two sessions, one month apart. The results have been far beyond my expectations. The clinic also stocks a fantastic range of skincare products that complement the in-house treatments on offer. I’ve been coming here for a number of years now, and wouldn’t even consider going anywhere else.
