AN experienced nurse is injecting a little beauty and style into Saddleworth with her recently opened aesthetics clinic.
Helen Godfrey, 34, officially opened the stylish doors of Retox Aesthetics at the start of February, though she has been at the Lees High Street location since June.
Both female and male clients can choose from a wide range of aesthetics and beauty treatments, enjoying a high standard using some of the most advance methods.
From the popular botox and dermal fillers to lip enhancements, chemical peels and booty lifts there is something for everyone.
And Helen, who lives in Springhead, has 10 years of experience to bring to the table – and treatment chair.
“I’m a paediatric nurse by trade,” she explained. “But doing those hours as well as aesthetics was too difficult so I made the decision to do this.
“I left the NHS about three years ago and wanted some kind of a base to work from.
“I used to work from home but I wanted something more professional so I was looking for a place in the local area and found this.
“I had a great client base so I brought them with me but we’ve also got a lot of new customers coming in too already.”
Joining Helen at the clinic are beauty therapist Sylvana van Lieshout, midwife Saida Hussain, receptionist Nicola Stanton and Rona Kirwan at front of house.
They also visit salons across the area including Carmen Nails in Whitfield, Salon 365 and The Caribbean Corner in Oldham, and GymEtc in Stalybridge.
Helen also teaches her aesthetics knowledge to other medical professionals and is a mentor on a level 7 masters course.
She also puts her medical training to good use with charity Destination Florida, helping provide safe trips to Walt Disney World for children with life-limiting medical conditions.
At her official opening of the clinic, she held a raffle to raise money for the charity, as well as celebrating the launch.
She revealed: “Everybody enjoyed it and stayed till about 7pm at night! We got some really great feedback.”
