Welcome to Essence on St Heliers

Essence on St Heliers, is a boutique skin therapy clinic that I started here in the Eastern Bays 15 years ago.

I wanted to have a more personalised approach for clients, somewhere that was none threatening, private and relaxed but lead the industry with the services on offer and for where my clients felt in safe hands.

I have kept evolving with the industry as it is forever changing, fortunately the investment made in my choice of Laser technology, microdermabrasion and cosmeceutical brand have mean’t everything I have on offer is current in the market.

I think the most important value here at Essence is the level of trust people say they have in my ability and opinion on the options for facial treatments. You the client want visible results for your investment.

I particularly enjoy combining facial treatment techniques and prescribing home care or as I like to put it, your homework…it is a collaboration between us.

My CUTERA Xeo Laser is the cornerstone of Essence treatment menu. It is with out doubt one of the most respected Lasers in the world. Whether it be to get the firmness back in your skin, remove unwanted hair or remove small unsightly veins, treat Rosacea, sunspots or teenage acne scarring I have the ability using this wonderful technology to help you.

In 2014 I was able to introduce the treatment for nail infections using my Xeo Laser. I was surprised by not only how many suffer with it but just how limited the treatment options were. It is a distressing condition for people and is not easy to combat. But now using my Cutera Laser and you doing some homework there is a better chance of getting a good result.

I look forward to getting to know you,
