The aesthetics industry is growing year on year, and with it the number of practitioners and clinics. With the proposed changes to the law on who can practice in aesthetics, it’s never been more important for those in the aesthetics field to truly be experts.
Education and expertise is key to the advancement of the aesthetics industry for both practitioners and patients. With this in mind, we’ve created a round up of the UK’s top aesthetics practitioners that you need to know about.
