MEET THE TEAM
FOUNDER & PRINCIPAL PRACTITIONER: KAREN JOHNSON MSc
Although The Chilgrove Clinic is relatively new, having been established in 2017, I have been involved in the beauty industry for over 35 years. I started my professional working life as a Pharmacist, before moving on to take a post-graduate degree in Sports Science in 1985, and running my own successful gym.
Over the years I have worked for various professional beauty companies, selling and training in high-end treatments such as Laser and specialist skincare products. This gave me an insight into how clinics and salons operated, and what clients were looking for in their therapists and practitioners.
After studying advanced skin science with Dr Des Fernandes, founder of Environ Skincare, I decided that specialist skin treatments was my true passion, and I have been advising, treating and improving clients’ skin for the past 25 years. Alongside this, my other speciality is Laser hair removal treatments. I get great satisfaction from helping clients to feel more confident about their appearance, especially if they have been struggling to cope with facial hair growth.
Since introducing our new Smart Diode Laser this year, we have seen some truly outstanding results for clients.
My mantra is to keep up to date and keep improving my knowledge, so that we can bring you the best treatments that are safe, proven and deliver results.
