The first few clinics added to this page are ones tried and tested by me. I trust all of these professionals implicitly with my face. They are all extremely skilled with years of experience and different skill sets between them. All of these locations will charge you for their time and then give you what they think your skin needs. There are no ‘conveyor-belt’ facials here.
Teresa Tarmey – Notting Hill W11
Obviously I’m going to start with my current home – Notting Hill is home to Teresa’s beautiful clinic where she and her team provide the very latest in the very best technology, along with years of experience. Everything from peels to fractional radiofrequency, mesotherapy, LED – and Teresa’s speciality – anything and everything laser. Pigmentation, acne, scarring, ageing skin – drop them a line – they can help. Teresa also retails the brilliant NeoStrata, Heliocare and others.
I would describe TT’s facials as super hi-tec – and you pay for the time, not specified treatments – always my preference.

Each clients journey is different, so every treatment is completely tailored, and the new clinic is a beautiful, fresh, clean space situated in the Parson Green area of Fulham Road with great retail brands.

I would class Pam as middle hi-tec and pampering. Gorgeous. you pay for your time, not the set treatment.

Sarah Brown – Trevor Sorbie – Covent Garden
I’ve been having facials with Sarah Brown for years. Sarah originally founded the Beauty a La Carte treatment rooms in Fortnum & Mason and headed them up until they were closed last year. Sarah moved across town to Trevor Sorbie’s Salon in Covent Garden where you can now visit her for a good thorough traditional facial including steam/extraction, microdermabrasion and a massage that will have you asleep in minutes.
Sarah is traditional mid-tec with a lot of massage. You pay for your time, not the set treatment.

Jordan Samuel made the switch from lifelong professional ballet dancing to faces (as you do) after years of watching ballerinas remove their heavy stage makeup clashed with his obsession for all things skin and products. Three years ago he launched his skin clinic, where he developed his unique Signature Facial, as well as his eponymous skincare range.
Jordan is trained and certified in all major procedures including manual lymphatic drainage facial massage, microdermabrasion, micro-current and LED light therapy, and continues to stay on top of the leading-edge skin technology, treatments and ingredients to give the latest skin treatments to his customers.
Jordan is a hybrid of hi-tec and traditional treatment and everything is tailor-made jordansamuelskin.com
