        “Professional service from beginning to end!! I have been going here now for a few years, and I have to say Sophie is very much the professional. From assessment to aftercare I would have absolutely no qualms in recommending her to anyone”

      2. Faye says:

        “I COULDN’T STAND THE SAGGING SKIN AND UNWANTED FAT UNDER MY CHIN, I FELT SO SELF-CONSCIOUS,”- FAYE’S CONFIDENCE WAS ROCK BOTTOM UNTIL SHE FOUND ILLUMINATE’S AMAZING NEW SHAPE & SCULPT TREATMENT PACKAGE.

        Gorgeous Faye Aston was struggling with the effects of accelerated aging, she wasn’t yearning to look 25 years younger then she is, she just didn’t want to appear older than her years.

        This is a common concern for many people who approach Illuminate for help with facial lines, wrinkles and bags.

        And the amazing news for Faye was at the time she approached us, we had just launched a revolutionary new skin treatment package which would be the answer to her prayers.

        Shape & Sculpt is a combination package which offers CoolMini – an innovative fat freezing treatment used to remove small bulges or pockets of submental fat under the chin – and Volux, a non-invasive jawline contouring procedure.

        It is fair to say Shape & Sculpt, in some ways, changed Faye’s life.

        “I felt ok before the treatment because I trusted Dr Sophie and the team because of how they’d made me all feel at ease.

        “It was a little painful during and afterwards but was well worth it for the results, I am delighted” she revealed.

        “I’d hated my saggy double chin, tired skin and tear trough. I felt so self-conscious, I really wanted to see if I could do something about it.”

        After finding Illuminate Skin Clinic on the Internet, Faye got in touch with us for a consultation where she also booked a dermal filler treatment to her mid and upper face.

        “I initially booked an appointment to see what could be done and Emma and Dr Sophie were so lovely and made me feel at ease straight away,” Faye revealed.

        “I started by having some skin conditioning treatments to build my confidence because I had never had any treatment on my face before and I was feeling a little wary”.

        She added: “My only regret now is that I had left it so long before taking the plunge and having the Shape and Sculpt, it has been amazing for me.

        “I will always come back to Illuminate now. One good reason is because I learned that if ever I am worried about anything after the treatment I can just call them or arrange an appointment to see Dr Sophie or one of the team.

        “And the lovely Emma always calls a day or so after to make sure everything is okay and any questions can be answered.”

        Faye also explained that she was pleased to receive our Treatment After Care email which explained how the results of her procedure will develop over time.

        Faye added: “It was fantastic, I am so pleased, I would definitely recommend Illuminate to others.”

      3. Claudia says:

        AS A FIRST-TIME PATIENT OF OUR AWARD-WINNING CLINIC, CLAUDIA ADMITS SHE WAS ONE OF THE MANY WOMEN WHO WORE EXTRA MAKE UP TO MASK ACCENTUATED VEINS UPON HER FACE, BUT NO MORE.

        Claudia visited Illuminate recently for a Thermavein procedure and she told us how delighted she was with the results.

        “I actually came across Illuminate on the Internet at first, I visited their website and then got in touch after that,” she revealed.

        “I’d been struggling with thread veins on my face for a while, on my cheeks in particular.

        “Before coming to Illuminate I would have to wear extra make up on my cheeks to cover them up which is certainly not what I wanted to do.”

        So pleased, was Claudia, with the results from a recent visit to our Kings Hill clinic for a Thermavein procedure, that she has already recommended us to her friends.

        She revealed: “To be honest I had tried a thread vein treatment at another clinic but it didn’t work, however, coming to Illuminate was a completely different story.”

        Having already been disappointed with treatment done elsewhere Claudia described her experience at Illuminate.

        “I have to say it was really good and informative. I felt very confident from the outset that the treatment would work well for me.

        “To tell the truth it was a little uncomfortable at first but I was made to feel really relaxed during the treatment and it was just fine.

        “The staff at Illuminate make you feel extremely comfortable and relaxed throughout your visit, nothing is too much trouble.”

        So, no more anxiety at the sight of protruding purple veins and no more covering up, but a clearer complexion and an abundance of new-found self confidence.

        Claudia added: “I have to say I was very impressed with the service afterwards. At first my face was very red, but I was reassured that this was a usual part of the process and I was soon back to normal. After the treatment I also received an aftercare email and a phone call so I felt very looked after.”

        Summing up her visit to Illuminate Claudia concluded: “In a word, excellent. I would definitely recommend, in fact I already have!”
