About Skin Beautiful Medical & Cosmetic Clinic

We are the largest and most successful single practitioner medical and cosmetic skin clinic in the UK. A success founded on the the principles of honesty, safety and correctness. Our outstanding practitioner Helen Bowes is an internationally respected expert in advanced and complex PDO thread lift and dermal filler procedures. Helen’s reputation for safety and correctness has earned her great respect among international senior peers across the medical aesthetics industry. We are the only clinic in the UK to have clinically developed our own advanced dermal filler systems for lips, cheeks and the non surgical facelift. We also lead the way in specialist medical aesthetics training as one of very few clinics in the UK to possess specialist medical aesthetics qualifications for every treatment we provide.


Our emphasis has always been on the correctness, precision and quality of the treatments and consultations we provide rather than on lavish clinics and furnishings. As a result, we are able to spend a higher percentage of turnover on specialist medical training than other clinics and practitioners. Our ethical approach to safety in aesthetic medicine goes way beyond that of other clinics. There are a number of medical devices on the market, both machines (e.g. for skin tightening) and injectable products (e.g. non hyaluronic acid dermal fillers) in regular use in many clinics which may give reasonble results for a time but in doing so they either damage the skin or may even give rise to complications in years to come. We have seen many cases of nodule formation from non hyaluronic acid FDA approved dermal filler products in clients 6 to 8 years post treatment. In some cases the practitioner is no longer in business. Our standpoint is simple. We will never offer these treatmens to our clients.

The most consistent clinical service anywhere in UK

Having 11 clinics and one practitioner is a strain at times but the result is a unique practitioner with vast knowledge and experience in aesthetic medicine; and because every clinic, every treatment and every client is under the care of a single practitioner our clients receive the most complete and consistent consultations and treatment plans possible. No other UK clinic provides the same level of consistency across a range of medical aesthetics procedures and for such a large geographical area.


Every procedure we provide is certified by the best medical training companies in the UK, and beyond. It’s something we insist upon. Helen Bowes is the 1st APDOT UK accredited trainer for safe and effective PDO thread lift procedures outside of London. We also belong to the Allergan medical institute and are an official authorised clinic for NeoDR™ PDO threads, Intraline™ PDO threads, Teosyal Redensity II (the world’s only approved tear trough filler), Obagi™ Medical, ME Line™ medical skin care, Intravita™ IV nutrition drips, Skin Synergy™ and Genuine Dermaroller™.


We provide an extensive range of advanced BOTOX®, dermal fillers, PDO thread facelift and fine thread body contouring, skin rejuvenation and medical skin care treatments (both prescribed and non prescribed) for dermatological skin conditions.

Medical aesthetics training for doctors, dentists and nurses

We provide industry leading CPD accredited medical aesthetics training to doctors, dentists and nurses at locations across England. Medical professionals looking to expand their clinics can benefit from the expertise of the UK safest and most exerienced practitioner in PDO thread lifting. Helen Bowes has vast experience of over 1300 PDO thread therapy procedures across a range of 100 different PDO procedures and is the UK only independently accredited APDOT PDO thread trainer. Our accredited courses provide certification at 3 different levels as well as master class level for the face, neck and body.

Concerns about safety, treatment standards, regulation and qualifications?

Our standards and consistency are exceptionally high, from our consultations, treatments, professional training, clinical hygiene and ethical practice right through to our scientific research and customer care. We know that many first time clients have concerns over injury or bad treatments either through media reports or experiences at other clinics. We address these concerns directly through our consultation process and can provide evidence of our high standards of injury free treatment to all clients and for every treatment we provide!


We are a self regulating clinic, providing highest possible standards over and above current UK regulation in the medical aesthetics industry. For example, whilst the UK government has taken a softer approach we believe all practitioners must be not only medically qualified and able to consult and prescribe the products they use, but must also prove they can perform every treatment to a consistly high standard before offering them to clients.

Academic and specialist qualifications

Helen Bowes has a BSc (hons) degree in adult nursing and a PG Cert. (V300) post graduate degree in non medical prescribing. She is a registered general nurse and qualified nurse independent and supplementary prescriber (Aesthetic Medicine).

Why are Skin Beautiful Clinics so different?

Training and qualifications are all very well, but what sets us apart as a leading clinic?


• Longer consultation times than other clinics, and our industry leading minimum consultation time guarantee
• Exclusive advanced dermal filler systems, clinically developed by Helen Bowes. Available only at our clinics
• Specialist medical aesthetics qualifications for every treatment we provide
• Visual evidence of our high standards of work for every treatment we provide


Investing in qualifications not lavish clinic furnishings and media advertising

Surprising as it may sound, we are more qualified to provide medical BOTOX®, dermal fillers and many dermatology and medical skin care treatments than many Doctors, GP’s or dentists. Neither BOTOX® nor dermal fillers procedures are taught to any doctor, dentist or nurse at university. Whilst being an essential foundation, we don’t consider a nursing or medical degree alone as sufficient in offering these highly specialised aesthetics treatments. We’ve invested heavily in the UK’s best medical aesthetics training as a way to meet our goal of excellence in medical practice. In fact, we have invested more than any other skin clinic in what matters the most – our client’s safety!
