I was born and raised in South Africa and moved to England when I was 19 years old.
I never knew what I wanted to do when I was growing up, who does? There was too much noise about what people thought I should be doing. There was Hotel Management, opening a Restaurant, Public Relations and Marketing! I even started a degree in Marketing but the degree that I chose included Accountancy and Economic, what on earth was I thinking? I hated anything numerical and generally didn’t succeed in it, so why I thought I had developed a numerical brain post school is beyond me - I do needless to say, employ an accountant for my business.
I remember my English teacher once telling my mother that she thought I should be a Beauty Therapist; I actually had no idea what a Beauty Therapist did but I do remember my mother’s reaction! Her words were ‘who the hell does she think she is’, that’s not happening! In those days, I think the film 'Grease' had a lot to answer for with their ‘Beauty School Dropout’ song.
I was that girl everyone asked to do their brows at break time in school or make up for weddings, even hair before prize giving assemblies, so Beauty Therapy was a natural choice for me!
I studied Beauty at 22, my first Beauty Job was at a Health Spa doing massage and reflexology for 8 hours a day, which I loved but I wanted to build connections and relationships with clients which isn’t generally what spa work is about.
Fast forward to 2012, after working in a few salons and going back into corporate, I decided to start a beauty business from home. I slowly built up my clientele in the evening alongside my day job until I was ready to give my full-time job up. I remember telling my oldest client, I resigned from my office job today, and she responded quite surprised, ‘You work in an office?’. I always felt like a square peg in a round hole working in an office.
I started my business in a spare room, followed by a converted garage, now I am at 5A Wood Street in Calne. It’s been the most amazing journey, my only regret is that I didn’t start my business sooner.
I have so many plans for this business, lets see where this journey is going to next!
Dermal Needling is when structural damage to the skin needs to be repaired, Dermal Needling is an established therapy based on initiating the skin’s own regenerative potential, bringing about remodelling and the formation of new skin structures, eventually resulting in repair of the altered tissues.Dermal Needling/Collagen induction therapy is a treatment where micro-wound injury is caused to the epidermis and basal membrane in order to activate your skins natural healing process and it has many short-term and long-term benefits. Micro-needling aids the remodelling of the epidermal and supporting dermal structures to gain improved skin texture, firmness and hydration. It aims at restoring the skin to its original state. Inflammatory cells are produced during micro-needling which migrate into the wound region, the function of the initial inflammatory cell reaction is to eliminate defective tissue and micro-organisms in the area. This is followed by the formation of new blood vessels, the activation of keratinocytes and fibroblast cells and initiation of the production of extracellular matrix components in the skin. Cell fragments are broken down and more growth factors and inflammation mediators are secreted. The messenger substances attract inflammatory cells and fibroblast cells and stimulate their synthesising activity. Fibroblast cells create the structural framework in our bodies and are responsible for the presence of collagen and elastin in our skin.The damaged and no longer functional structures in the skin are broken down and replaced by intact ones, and this regeneration can be associated with an improvement in the appearance of the skin. During the “wound-healing” process, there is an improvement in epidermal structure and functionality, and studies have demonstrated up 40% thickening of the epidermis in a 3 to 6-month period. As we age, our regeneration process slows in the skin, ageing is more visible due to the decrease in skin thickness and loss of its smallest blood vessels. Dermal Needling gives the skin a fresher look by increasing the thickness of the epidermis and regenerating the blood vessels.When cell regeneration occurs as a result of wound healing, it takes approximately a month for a new cell to complete its journey from the basal cell layer where it is reproduced to the granular layer where it becomes keratinised, to the horny layer where it is shed. Therefore, you can visually start seeing real results from 2 to 3 weeks.
MesotherapyMesotherapy is applied to the mesodermal (central/middle) tissue, where the connective tissue starts. It is a minimally invasive injection technique to deliver nourishing substances, including Vitamins, Amino-acids, Minerals to layers of the skin where cell repair and growth occurs. As these are essential components for healthy skin cells, this treatment helps to: ✓ Improve dull, tired-looking skin ✓ Improve dry and lifeless skin ✓ Manage superficial wrinkles ✓ Treat many other concerns, such as hair loss, pigmentation, scarring, acne, stretch marks.✓ Meso is used in natural aesthetics practice and can also be used for Lips, facial fat reduction, lifting, firming, reducing broken capillaries and lymphatic drainage.Mesotherapy replaces the naturally occurring vitamins and nutrients and skin becomes luminescent, hydrated, nourished and firmer with an improved texture.The goal of mesotherapy in skin rejuvenation is to increase the function of fibroblast cells and cellular activity, and production of new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, leading to increased firmness, brightness, and moisturisation of the skin. Mesotherapy is skin rejuvenation and studies show that the decreasing of wrinkles is also possible when the procedure is repeated over time.
