After graduating with a BA Hons degree in Criminology and Youth Justice Sarah soon realised that an office working environment was not for her. Whilst continuing to work full-time Sarah completed a Level 2 & 3 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy in 2011. Using the skills from her course Sarah started out as a free-lance therapist in North West London offering a wide range of treatments including:
- Hair removal – waxing
- Manicures & Pedicures
- Facial Treatments
- Therapeutic Full Body Massage
- Eye Treatments
In order to provide the best quality to her clients, she individually trained with market leading brands such as Dermalogica, Jessica, CND Shellac, CACI, Sienna X and more. As her career developed so did her desire to offer the latest treatments achieving optimum results. Her focus soon turned to scientific evidence-based and medical practices, which in turn lead to her specialising in anti-ageing treatments. Sarah began to research the most innovative and results proven treatments for the face and body which lead her to Dermapen, an anti-ageing micro-needling treatment. In March 2015, she completed the intensive training and began offering Dermapen, achieving some fantastic results.
Within a few years of working in the industry, it became clear there was a growing demand from clients wanting to combine the benefits of medical and beauty treatments. After some research, Sarah decided to continue her professional development by completing a Diploma in Foot Health with The SMAE Institute. The intense course included advanced Anatomy and Physiology and took over 18 months to complete with both written and practical assessments. The Diploma provides her with the necessary skills to treat many routine foot health complaints such as:
- Fungal infections
- Nail Care
Since completing the course in 2015 Sarah now offers routine foot health appointments, beauty treatments or the combination of both by way of a medical pedicure drawing on skills from each. Sarah’s rare ability to combine both industries allows her the opportunity to interact and deliver treatments to not only enhance her clients aesthetically but also their health and well-being.
