Permanent make – up

Getting quite a bit of hype at the moment, and seeing a dramatic increase in custom as a result. We see – permanent make up.


Why dye your brows continually when you can have your own brows shape enhanced naturally using tailored techniques.

Achieving individual hair strokes is not unachievable with the technologies available to us these days. You can make choices from thick or thin strokes, combined strokes, differing hair patterns or brow shapes, you can choose the colour of your brows and thicken with ombre too.

How? either choosing micro-blading with a pen tool or tattooing device – depending on the results you are hoping to achieve. You have a 1.5-2 hour appointment including consultation, numbing cream between each pass, choosing colours and brow shape with a pencil prior to starting. After 4-6 weeks you will have a review to assess the healing and the overall look after the skin is healed and settled.

How much? £250 all incl.


Some of us have scaring, uneven lip lines, some of us just want to have our lipstick on permanently.

It is all now possible.


Using tattoo machines to fine detail your entire lip from the line to the block colour using special adapted aseptic needles. It takes betweek 1 and 2 hours. You consult, choose colours, use pencil to map out and agree the shape before you start. Then numbing cream is applied between passes. There are 3 passes, lip line, colour upper and lower … repeat 3 times. There will be a review between 2-4 weeks when the skin has settled down and healed into it’s natural state.

How much? £250 all inclusive.

Eye liner or lash enhancement

By the process of enhancing the lash line with permanent make up you can ensure that your lashes will look thicker for longer. You can also add permanent cats eye or detail so that you always have a beautiful frame to the window to your soul.


The process takes between 1-2 hours. There are 3 passes, numbing cream applied between each. You will be laid flat and your eyes closed most of the time, you will have to resist wiggling and need to be as patient as possible. The eye lid is a sensitive area so expect inflammation in the days after and be prepared not to wear eye make up for 24 hours. You will get a healing ointment to help with the healing process. A review is done 2-4 weeks after the initial treatment.

How much? £150-£200, Why? Because if you want the lash enhancement not as much needs to be done, if you want a cats eye or more detailed and intricate work, this takes longer and contains much more skill.

Christmas baby!

We know what we all want deep down … but do your loved ones!!

I hate asking for gifts, but I also hate waste – and I can buy myself a fragrance or beauty set.

You know what I really want? Cheek fillers. I haven’t got them yet because it’s Christmas and everyone else’s presents took from my budget.

It’s not a sum to be sniffed at. So it is unlikely I will ask my loved ones for this, even though deep down it’s what I want and every penny will be cherished.

TNC Announcement!

So, we’ve moved!

TNC Aesthetics clinic is now located within Brampton Park Golf Course, Brampton. PE8 4NF. All contact details remain as they are indicated within the site.


We are continuously tking feedback, verbal, written and otherwise. Equally we assess our business accounts and statistics. The move is as a result of analysis of these combined facts, then a process of conversations about our directions as individuals as well as TNC Aesthetics.

Much feedback indicated that the previous location of TNC aesthetics was too remote. Whilst I agree, I also liked being in the Cambridgeshire countryside – it was not for our customers so it was not for us.

Much analysis indicated that we had about 50-60% of our customers taking advantage of our discrete home-visit service for one or another reason. This shocked us as naturally we hadn’t expected to see this. As such, Tony, Nikky and Carley sat down for a discussion. Tony covering Swansea, Wales and Boston, Lincolnshire – Nikky covering Stamford, Lincolnshire and Peterborough, Cambridgeshire with Carley mostly in Pidley clinic but also covering Cambridgeshire. It would appear that those local to the clinic will travel and those at a distance still wish to take advantage of our unique expertise. Therefore, Brampton Clinic is in the village where Carley lives, located just off a slip road from the A1 and crossing the A14 direct for the midlands, Cambridge, Peterborough and north London areas.

Your feedback and analysis has helped us to progress and improve our service to you. We look forwards to hearing your feedback on the changes.

Love the skin you’re in!

Internal wellness the key to external health

Today we are going to discuss felling happy!

One of the reasons that we love aesthetics as the results can be, in certain instances, life changing for people and therefore have a truly positive impact on their confidence.

There are however steps we can take to avoid getting to the point in which we hate to look in the mirror every morning.

We have therefore compiled a list of skin, hair and nail health in order to help you look after your appearance from the inside out.

Evidence based practice is the forefront of nursing and we have chosen to bring this into our aesthetics practice. The facts:

1) Stress causes break outs, poor diet and hypertension in some instances impacting the outcome of our skins appearance and therefore looks.

2) Poor sleep quality reduces the amount of time in which our skin has to heal itself, impacting the appearance of our skin and our looks.

3) Dehydration internally and externally, low fluid intake and sun exposure, cause damage to our cells and ability to be plump, we therefore become dried out and our skin is wrinkly and flaky.

4) The skin is the largest organ in the body, it helps to regulate body temperature, protect the internal organs from external foreign bodies and nasties and is able to absorb nutrients applied topically. The skin is highly vascular whereby the topically absorbed nice and nasties are absorbed into the bloodstream, carried around the body and excreted through the bodies other functions, Kidneys and Liver.

How can we boost our skins ability to function and in turn improve our appearance and prevent early ageing:

1) Drink 2 – 3L of water a day. H2O is best however all fluids have qualities and therefore will work. AVOID caffeinated drinks as caffeine is a diuretic and therefore most of the fluid content is lost through the kidney via excretion and will not have the desired effect.

2) Sleep 8 hours per night, this is the optimum time and over for the cells to be able to rehabilitate themselves from life’s daily stresses.

3) Meditate, reducing heart rate through regular exercise and calming practices improve mental wellbeing, physical wellbeing and circulation – this is good for the skin as it enables the body to heal and function as it should instead of doing ‘over-time’.

4) Watch what you put on your skin, read the backs of labels. Skincare is not as closely regulated as medications however as we’ve seen documented, a certain element of the product you put on your skin is absorbed into the blood stream. Nasties effect your internal organs.

5) Moisturise to prevent dryness. We recommend twice daily with a cream during the day containing SPF50 to protect from UV rays and free radicals and also to provide nourishment and moisturisation. Night time is the time for cellular healing therefore night creams are the time you can consider the elements of the skin which you want to target and enhance. For example, specialist skin care for acne, rosacea and anti ageing products. Get regular facials if you can, this will improve your facial skin – this skin doesn’t wear clothing and therefore absorbs all daily free radicals – occasionally it needs a detox.


1) hydrate your skin internally and externally.

2) Get your ZZZ’s in.

3) Be careful what you put on your skin, protect against the free radicals we know about.

4) Look after your mental wellbeing as this will impact your heart rate which will effect the nutrients delivered to your skin.

So … it’s time to get proactive as well as reactive. Of course we will be here should you need us to help even and smooth out any concerns. We needn’t be the guru’s. There is far more that you can do for yourself that you maybe realise. It’s time for us all to take the power back into our own hands – it’s cheaper that way too ; ).

LED light therapy. NASA technology.

LED light therapy is a light therapy utilised by NASA on the space station.

In the absence of medical treatment and health supplies LED light therapy is used to heal numerous ailments.

LED Light therapy by TNC Aesthetics

Research since the ‘80s has i proven that targeting different depths and stimulating the functions of this layer can improve the reproduction of cells. The cells are already formulated with all the data they need to produce the correct reaction.

Science has been able to measure light in nanometers. To the naked eye, nanometers are identifiable by their colour of light.

At TNC Aesthetics we are trained to understand what layer of the skin is needed to be reached in order to tackle problem areas such as:
Poor elasticity
Uneven skin tone
Inflamed and sensitive skin

By targeting the depth of the skin that is causing the problem, we are able to stimulate the cells to produce more of the cells that cause the right reaction.
Over a course of treatments the skin will become rejuvenated in a non-invasive way.

You will feel:
More energised
Make up can be applied more evenly
You will experience more good skin days
You will be stimulating cells to produce more of themselves which in turn will produce a better immunity and healing reaction systemically

Fat dissolving injections

Many of us are facing an ageing and stubborn fat clause in our genetic make up.

When we exercise we cannot target areas of stubborn fat, especially if they lie within a layer which suffers from poor lymphatic drainage. (The system which carries away waste products).

Excess and unwanted fatty deposits results in uneven skin tone, cellulitis lumpy appearances and a disproportionate body shape.

Even more important is the pressure the internal stubborn fat puts on our vital organs whose space it inhibits, the increased risk of cholesterol related complications and if it is held around the lower abdomen research has linked it to type 2 diabetes.

So what can we do about it?

Exercise and changing the lifestyle or diet to prevent further damage is key.

Exercise is likely to make you lose weight. But it will be harder and is less likely from stubborn areas.

Can we do it more quickly? YES


Mesotherapy is the name given to injections of a variety of types. These injections use biological data taken from humans, then a lab uses the botanical extracted version of the same chemistry to create infusions appropriate for injection.

PPC or Phosphatidylicholine is a medication of this type. It is an enzyme found within the body which dissolves fatty deposits that it comes into contact with.

By injecting this in controlled amounts, over a course of injections, it will dissolve and carry away the fat that it encounters making it very effective for those stubborn areas such as back fat, thigh and lower abdomen fat, also commonly used for double chins.

The medication itself is injected subcutaneously (just under the skin), where the molecule has been adapted to be able to absorb into the stored fatty deposits. Each injection spreads 1 – 2cm’s and works over 2 weeks.

Each course session is therefore 2 weeks apart and dependant on the amount of fat 6+ sessions may be required.

A grid is drawn onto the area indicating 1 -2 cm difference for the injector. This is to ensure neither too much nor too little is absorbed within the area as per the administration guidelines.

There are between 10 and 20 injections depending on the area.

It is over within 20 minutes however you can request a break, and some do.

A numbing cream can be applied however the injection is not uncomfortable however the medication does let off a momentary moderate sting. This is gone within 10 minutes.

Afterwards you can expect bruising, hives, redness, bleeding from injection sites however these symptoms are mild and will heal within a week.

It is unlikely but possible to have an allergic reaction.

Positive side effects of the medication are tightening of the skin and stretch mark reduction : ) (bonus).

You will see results at different points of the course depending on the severity and area affected. Before and after pictures will be taken to help you facilitate this. The medication is an additional fluid to the area so for the 3 day healing period of absorption, you are more likely to see the area as bloated – you do however need enough of the enzyme to be effective in doing it’s job.

This is an example of lower abdominal injections done by TNC Aesthetics nurse Carley Bradford BSc Hons RN Asth. This client had a course of 3 sessions. There was notable difference in the tightness and reduction of stretched skin.

Chemical Peels …

A little snippet into the background and benefits from having a Chemical Peel.

Available on YouTube channel Carley BSc BACN RN at TNC Aesthetics

In summary, science has been able to identify why ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks sought benefit from nature around them and why it provided the results it did.

As such, today we have scientifically tested acids derivative from nature following the lead of our ancestors.

With the benefits of scientific knowledge we are better able to understand the PH, contraindications, contra actions and benefits of each chemical.

It is MYTH that chemical peels are chemicals which are man made.

It is TRUTH that the lower the PH level, the greater the depth within the skin that is treated.

This is beneficial knowledge, but why?

Our increased knowledge of dermatology and pathophysiology means that we can identify which conditions occur within which layer of the skin. It is therefore beneficial as we are able to offer a more evidence based chemical peel suitable for the individual having the consultation.


  • Evens out skin tone
  • Treats and prevents fine lines and wrinkles
  • Causes a healing process which strengthens the linkages and cells of the skin
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Treats acne and acne scarring
  • Treats hyperpigmentation and melasma
  • Treats ages spots
  • Heals psoriasis (however infected psoriasis is contraindicated)
  • Gives a glow to the skin once healed
  • Anti-ageing (as we age the stratum corneum thickens and this helps to reduce that so your skin can start fresh)
  • Promotes production of collagen, hyalouronic acid and cellular regeneration
  • Treats blackheads, whiteheads and oily skin
  • Treats enlarged pores
  • Improves elasticity of the skin
  • Treats admit is and sebaceous keratosis

The treatment itself will take no longer than an hour.

There will be an individual consultation so the best advice and PH acid can be used for your skin.

Chemical peels often work to TREAT conditions, as such a course may be advise to help reverse the effects totally … as with time, the condition has worsened and taken over your life, so too it takes time to heal the condition.


  • Do not touch skin for 24-48 hours
  • Do not wash your face for 24-48 hours
  • Avoid over moisturising, this can cause premature shedding when the new cells are still generating therefore damaging the new cells.
  • Avoid the lure to pick off peeling skin (this only occurs with some PH acids) as above, this can damage the new cells before they are ready.
  • Expect redness, irritation and inflammation as a natural part of the healing process between 3 days and 14 days dependant on the treatment.
  • Wear SPF50+ for at least 3 days after the treatment, the skin cells are delicate and we have penetrated the stratum corneum which would usually help to protect the body from UV rays, which will damage the cells which are regenerating.
  • Do not have a Chemical Peel close to a big event, leave at least 4 weeks before a wedding or party you want to look at your best for.
  • Treat skin with a hyalouronic acid serum after 48 hours for 14 days underneath your moisturiser to see the best effects of the Chemical Peel – the hyalouronic acid will attract H2O to the area which will improve and speed up the healing process, as will drinking water.
  • If you must wear make up after 24 – 48 hours then choose a mineral foundation as it is unlikely to mutate and interfere with the cellular regrowth. Likewise when removing make up – choose PH balanced products (PH6/7).
  • DO NOT exfoliate your skin for 14 days after the chemical peel.
Carley Aesthetic Nurse volunteering herself due to problem skin. BEFORE

Carley was experiencing spots, combination skin, scaring and uneven skin tone. She decided to get a chemical peel as it had been a little while since she had adhered to her skincare regime.

24 hours later AFTER

After 24 hours, the redness had gone away. She still had dry patches and skin which was starting to peel. There was mild itching. This is normal for a chemical peel. As you can see, even after 24 hours you can see the change in her complexion.

7 days later. A perfectly even skin tone. AFTER

After 7 days, her healing process was almost complete. As you can see she had eradicated her spots, uneven skin tone and combination skin. Her skin no longer felt dry, itchy nor was flaking. She had no itched, over moisturised or picked her peeling skin (as per the instructions, failure to do this would have presented in scarring).

“I’m so happy with my results. I had a short period of neglecting my skin and partaking in poor diet. My skin tells all my tales.. But now, at 33, I think I might have the best skin texture and tone I have ever had!”


The process of using either nappage or cannula use blunt needles to inject the subcutaneous layer of the skin.

Two things occur:

1) The skin is tricked into thinking it is ‘hurt’, the healing process is triggered which results in natural reproduction of skin cells.

2) A vitamin, stem cell or specific natural acid is injected in order to target one of the following problems:

– Skin rejuvenation

– Targeted fat dissolving – Belly, Bottom and Neck safe.

– Hair growth regeneration (note this is only suitable at the ‘thinning’ stage and once the skin is shiny – there are no follicles for the surrounding cells to replicate when regenerating.

– Acne

– Scarring

– Age spots

– Sun damage

– Un-even skin tone

Due to the nature of the process, it is advised that a course of mesotherapy is booked in order to significantly eradicate the problem and of course lifestyle advice will be provided should you wish to repeat the regeneration of these ‘broken’ cells and their effects. (Of course this is not always possible when genetic).
