When did you set up Setsuko Beauty Clinic? And why?
I started 11 years ago, renting a treatment room at Ph hair salon before setting up my own salon in North Petherton 6 years ago. I was offering standard beauty treatments at that time. It was still the middle of the recession, and no beauty salons were hiring staff, so I decided to start my own.

What services do you offer?
Currently, I offer Laser hair removal using the pain-free Motus Ay laser machine and I have just started my NEW treatments HIFU and RF Microneedling. I also specialise in Female Intimate Waxing.

How has your business changed over the years?
My clients are always my inspiration. The more clients I meet, the more I realise that people are looking for long-term solutions rather than a short-term quick fix. That is why I started learning about aesthetic treatments like Laser Hair Removal and gained more qualifications.

Do you have any exciting future plans?
I have just launched the HIFU and RF Microneedling treatments for non-surgical facelift and wrinkle/scar reduction treatments. I want everyone to try these wonderful new treatments. It’s the best skin tightening & lifting treatment using latest technologies with little to no downtime.

I have also introduced monthly Membership Plans. All you need to do is select a plan and I will take care of the rest to make sure you look and feel fabulous!

Tell me about HIFU. What is it? 
HIFU stands for “High Intensity Focused Ultrasound”. It is a non-surgical facelift treatment, using Focused Ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in all layers of the skin. HIFU is one of the few treatments that can reach the SMAS layer, which was previously accessible only via surgery.  

Unlike invasive procedures and many non-invasive procedures, my HIFU machine, the Focus Dual, is virtually pain free.

What is Radiofrequency Microneedling? Any different from normal Microneedling?
Microneedling uses ultrafine needles to penetrate the skin, this creates a micro-wound to stimulate new collagen and elastin. This leads to smoother skin with less wrinkles. Radio Frequency Microneedling uses RF energy between the needles to heat the surrounding tissue which gives a further boost to elastin and collagen production. The RF Microneedling is very customisable so it can be adjusted for specific conditions like acne scars and stretch marks.
