expert services in skin care and dermalogica face mapping

Covid 19 has changed the way all businesses operate and the skin care industry has had to face many challenges with regards to reopening safely.

At Essential Therapy, hygiene and sanitisation has always been a top priority and during the lockdown I have undergone extensive training covering new health and safety recommendations in order to be ready for re-opening, when safe to do so. These include Covid 19 Infection and Prevention Control at the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists and Dermalogica's Clean Touch Certification, looking specifically at how therapists can carry out treatments safely for both clients and therapists.

This includes sanitising all professional products used during a treatment, sanitising all hard surfaces that the clients come into contact with including door handles and light switches and ensuring all bed coverings are changed and laundered after every client.

The 12 safety principals covered in the Clean Touch Certification can be found on the news page.

The changes mean that I have had to look at the way the appointments are booked to ensure that I can operate both time and cost effectively. For this reason, I would ask that clients book appointments of a minimum 1 hour. On the following pages, treatment times are shown next to the services so that you can book shorter services along side each other ensuring your appointment meets the required time slot.

As a skin therapist with more than 30 years industry experience, my focus is on skin health with treatments tailored to individual requirements. Good skin care is not about pampering and luxury, any more than brushing your teeth or washing your hair.

Skin problems come in many guises, from sensitivity and breakouts to pigmentation, full blown acne and premature ageing, and whilst I won't promise false miracles, I know that with regular professional treatments and a good home routine, your skin can be the best it can possibly be.

I have used Dermalogica products both personally and professionally for over 30 years and I am convinced their products are the best in the world. With my experience, great products and face mapping skin analysis, my aim is to ensure you achieve great results every time you visit. I regular attend class at the International Dermal Institute to ensure I keep up to date with the latest ingredients and treatments. In 2014 I achieved Dermalogica 'Expert' status, which is the highest level of training a Dermalogica skin therapist can reach. I am also a part of Derm Circle, an elite group of businesses committed to the Dermalogica ethos and standards. In 2018 I was appointed Brand Ambassador to Dermalogica, one of only 14 in the UK.

The location of my treatment centre is convenient, on the outskirts of Bury St Edmunds. Parking and peaceful surroundings ensure your visit is stress free and my undivided attention will make your visit a great experience.
