MY APOLOGIES, DUE TO DEMAND I AM UNABLE TO TAKE ANY NEW CLIENTS FOR FACIALS AT THE PRESENT TIME (Summer 2022). FOR ANY OTHER SERVICES OR IF YOU HAVE A GIFT VOUCHER PLEASE DO GET IN TOUCH.
Hello and welcome! My name is Nina, thank you for visiting my website.
I have a keen interest in the science of skin care and facial treatments as well as my aesthetic work using advanced electrolysis and cryotherapy for reducing facial thread veins and removing minor skin blemishes such as cherry angiomas (blood spots), milia, skin tags, seborrhoeic keratoses, xanthelasma, pigmentation marks and much more. I also offer microneedling for skin rejuvenation, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and disorders of pigmentation.
If you would like to try a facial but are unsure which would be best or want to embark on a new skincare journey using products that really will make a difference then please do get in touch. I can advise on your routine and which ingredients will make a difference to your skin (and those that won't!). A consultation will be carriend out at your facial appointment. Please note I am not medically trained and cannot give any form of a diagnosis if you have a skin condition.
NEW! The Mii Foundation Bar
Finding the right foundation is not easy! There is an abundance of products on the market; from sheer to matte, light to full coverage, liquids, creams, gels and powders, not forgetting the ever popular BB creams. Foundation can be seen as an extension of your skincare and should ideally have skin benefits as well as an SPF. I have tried a range of professional products and my favourite has to be Mii - for its range of skin loving ingredients and seemless application. If you are looking for a new foundation or would like to experiment with textures and colour matching then please do make an appointment to visit the foundation Bar!
If you are looking for some well deserved time out and just want to escape and relax then please do visit my Spa page for a selection of indulgent facials with combined massage. These treatments are popular choices for gifts.
Facial waxing and threading is also available.
A little enhancement to your lashes can help define and open up the eye area. This can be achieved with the very popular lash lift, which when combined with a tint can give the wow factor to your peepers! Brows are as popular as ever and can be tidied with a simple tint and wax or can be made to give a statement look with a combination of artistic steps.
I also offer ear piercing and thanks to my 15 years experience and NHS background I have pierced hundreds of ears. The Beauty Suite is licenced by the local authority for advanced aesthetic electrolysis and ear piercing.
Having decided to leave the NHS following a 15 year career as an Occupational Therapist, I undertook my beauty therapy training at Truro College followed by specialist courses in Bristol, London and Manchester. I openend 'The Beauty Suite' in November 2006 and began trading in Truro town centre. I moved the business to my home in Carnon Downs in September 2020.
During my time in the NHS I also gained a Master of Science degree in Health Care through Exeter University.
Located in a beautiful purpose built log cabin in Carnon Downs (on the outskirts of Truro) the salon is discreetly housed with no on-lookers, only gardens, trees and beautiful views out towards Devoran.
You will be able to park off road (no town parking charges!) and then take the path to the cabin (please remain in your car until your app0inted time), before enjoying your chosen treatment in the light, spacious and peaceful beauty room.
The cabin is fully insulated and has central heating, so even in the winter it is nice and toasty! There are also toilet facilities for your convenience, all being totally seperate from our house.
