I tried the Obagi Blue Radiance peel with Shazia and I cannot recommend her and the clinic enough. The initial consultation was helpful, informative; Shazia spoke to me at length about my skin concerns and what would be the best treatment option for me. Shazia's friendly and professional manner put me at ease and she answered all my queries and talked me through each stage of the treatment. After only my first visit, I wouldnt go anywhere else for my skin and also would wholeheartedly recommend the clinic.
Best hydrafacial I have ever had in my entire life! The experience was so amazing they have the most lovely staff and everything was so professional and my skin has never felt better 🤩
