Freshen up! 40 best ‘tweakment’ salons

Fancy glowing skin, a sculpted jawline or a tighter bum? No need to go under the knife - we've scoured the Muddy counties for the best non-invasive treatments in top-rated salons.

HERTFORDSHIRE

Jenny Cader Clinic, Hertford

Specialists in non-surgical treatments (it’s also an accredited training academy), Jenny, Elly and the team offer everything from medical grade chemical peels and Diode laser hair removal to semi-permanent makeup. Peels and pigments are the most popular ‘tweakments’ on the menu. There’s a wide range of peels to target everything from hyperpigmentation and acne to dullness and lines. And if you want to add a pop of colour to your pout, a lip blush could be the answer – a semi-perm tint to lift your natural colour. 

Buff and Bare, St Albans 

Predominantly a hair removal clinic, this will be your one-stop shop for de-fuzzing pre baring all (well, nearly all) poolside, this summer! But it’s also branching out into skin, too (with a whole new look – watch this space) It already offers advanced cosmetic treatments using devices with medical-level creds. The latest thing is Focus Dual Radiofrequency Microneedling, which creates micro wounds in the skin. The healing process stimulates fibroblasts which give skin back its ‘snap’ by promoting collagen production. Apparently all the celebs are raving about it.

NORTHAMPTONSHIRE

Sasha Core, Kettering and Harley Street

CACI facial Sasha Core Kettering Northants Harley Street

Sadie Frost, J-Lo and Kim K and even Nick Grimshaw are apparently all dedicated disciples of the CACI facial, which uses LED light therapy and electric micro-currents to stimulate collagen production, replacing botox and fillers as the must-have celeb treatment. Said to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it supposedly makes you look years younger. I’ll take it. The best thing? It costs way less than invasive surgery and won’t leave you will a that tell-tale puffy filler face.

Manor Farm Spa and Clinic, Northants

Still recovering from the heat wave? Chill out and head to Manor Farm Spa and Clinic in Lamport, where they’ll cool you down in no time with a spot of Lipocontrast. It’s based on advanced Cryothermal technology and works by heating, cooling and heating the fat cells through a 3 step cycle, reducing the treated body fat by 33% with no post-treatment downtime needed. Bikini on and straight to the beach after then?

When it comes to brows, Samantha Trace means business. She specialises in microblading, a semi-permanent technique where a pigment is etched into the skin to replicate the look of hairs, as well as microfeathering, a signature tweakment that’s only carried out on sparse areas of the brow as opposed to the entire arch. Samantha’s 20 years in the industry has seen her add clients Lottie Moss and fashion influencer Lorna Luxe to her books, and her team of seven are specialists in their disciplines, such as Dr Sally Rayment who offers non-surgical rhinoplasty using dermal filler. It’s not just gained Muddy’s seal of approval – last year it won clinic of the year at the British Aesthetic Awards.

As far as non-surgical ‘facelift’ options go, Mae Cosmetics offers the big daddy. Touted as a revolutionary new treatment, PDO Threads (above) is a quick procedure that tackles the main culprits of saggy skin: loss of fat, collagen and elasticity. Special medical grade threads (as fine as a strand of hair and made of protein) are inserted into the fat layer to stimulate production of collagen and elastin. Be gone jowls and marionette lines! The threads dissolve naturally within six months – and the results gradually fade, so upkeep is necessary. Not your cup of tea? Dermaplaning, fat freezing, microneedling, LED light therapy, and skin peels are all on the menu here.
