About Fresh Faces
Cosmetic Aesthetic clinic offering a range of skin rejuvenation and anti Ageing treatments.
Fresh Faces has patient safety and welfare at the core of its practice. The mainstay of the focus is helping patients look great for their age but not done. Helen feels the ultimate compliment is "you look well" or "you look great" not "what have you had done!?" We don't subscribe to the done or false look for many different reasons.
Helen started her nursing career over 32 years ago qualifying as a general nurse in 1987 and midwife in 1996. Upon qualifying she staffed at Clatterbridge in the regional cancer centre before moving into the pharmaceutical industry. During this time maintaining her registration by working as a bank nurse in the community. Latterly she worked in General Practice as a practice nurse and also worked as a midwife on labour ward. Helen qualified as an Independent Nurse prescriber in 2009.
Helen made the move into the aesthetics industry in 2008 eventually setting Fresh Faces up in 2009. Initially she ran this along side her NHS role. As the clinic developed and grew Helen left the NHS in 2011 to concentrate full time on aesthetics. Helen was also responsible for setting up and running the nurse led aesthetics clinic at the Spire Hospital, Liverpool for 4 years.
