We are very proud that Helen and her two other colleagues are amongst the few Laser Technicians in East Anglia qualified to Level 5 BTEC in Light and Energy Based Therapies. Her particular forte is Skin Rejuvenation using IPL, CO2 Fractional Ablative Resurfacing and Non-ablative Nd:YAG.

Senior Laser Technician - Purser
Having joined us in 2012 Jayne was the first of our technicians to gain the formal BTEC qualification in Laser, Light and Associated Therapies after achieving a Merit in her Anatomy and Physiology Diploma. Her background as a Royal Navy gunner for 7 years is slightly eccentric but that life experience explains why she is the most highly and prolifically rated of all our exceptional team of laser ladies. Along with her two other Technician Colleagues she is one of those very rare Practitioners in East Anglia who are qualified at BTEC Level 5 in Laser Therapies. A hard worker she is blessed with the most wonderful sense of humour that she uses to great effect. She holds the NHS Contract for the treatment of transgender patients undergoing gender reassignment. She is undoubtedly one the most highly experienced and successful Laser Hair removal and tattoo ablation experts in the region.

Jenny is our warm welcoming face at the laser clinic reception desk. We have known Jenny throughout all of her adult life as family GP and as a dear friend. Having spent 39 years of her career in financial management at Aviva when we found out that she was looking for happy human contact rather than spreadsheets we couldn’t wait to get her started. She has never looked back! Bubbly, friendly and confident with high standards Jenny keeps the front of house running smoothly.
