“Waterhouse Young offers an abundance of skincare treatments and expertise. From a luxury facial to more targeted skin solutions, the clinic is a go-to skincare destination.”
“Never have I been as vain as I was when I left The Waterhouse Young clinic after my rehydrating facial. Not a mirror did I pass without staring in awe at my reflection. My skin was dewy and glowing and for the first time in years I felt confident enough to leave the house without having applied foundation.”
"For great skin this summer, the key is to think ahead! If you want your face to look tip top, then head down to Waterhouse Young. Expect your face to glow the after their HydraFacial, as if your thirsty skin has had a big drink."
“It’s not easy knowing who to trust with something as personal and visible as your face. At Waterhouse Young I feel completely confident that I will leave looking a better version of myself, having learnt something in the process that will help me to slow down the signs of ageing.”
“Dr Saira was knowledgeable and made the whole experience informative and relaxing.”
“As soon as I entered the Waterhouse Young clinic, I knew that the experience was going to be one to remember. The HydraFacial and Intraceutical Infusion are both divine treatments, they left my skin, face and décolleté feeling healthy, hydrated and glowing – even my fiancé noticed the instant improvement! It was the perfect pre-wedding preparation and I felt amazing on my special day. I’m recommending it to everyone.”
“That was the best treatment I have had! Skin glowing.”
“The difference in my skin is unbelievable since the guys at my Dad’s new clinic have been looking after me. As a model, my job involves a lot of travelling and long hours, yet the team still manage to keep my skin clear and glowing. As the camera never lies, I couldn’t do without their awesome treatments.”
“Wow, it was totally amazing, my skin looks and feels so much better! Having had a patch of generally dull and lacklustre skin I am just so impressed by it. All about the results-driven facial.”
“Really knowledgeable staff, and state of the art treatments. Would recommend to anyone.”
“Having tried and tested many hair removal lasers over the years, I have been mightily impressed with the new Soprano ICE as not only is it completely pain free but after just one treatment I noticed an immediate difference. The efficacy of this treatment and the professionalism of the staff at the Waterhouse Young clinic are a winning combination – if you want smooth legs this summer don’t go anywhere else”.
“I have personally had 14 HydraFacial treatments at Waterhouse Young. I cannot fault the service offered in any way and my dermatological issues have been improved quite dramatically. What I like about the company and its practice is that they do not advise patients on having treatment just for the sake of it! I have had so many comments about my skin. Everyone wants to know the secret! It’s Waterhouse Young.”
“The Hydrafacial at Waterhouse Young has changed my life! Thanks to Anna the wonderful therapist who treated me…I’ll see you soon :))”
“I am delighted with the results from Dr Saira. She put me at ease and I learnt a lot about skin ageing. The results are natural yet really effective so I’m already looking forward to my next treatment with her.”
"My hectic schedule means my face often takes a huge strain. Early morning TV, running in cold blustery winds, not to mention the sleepless nights that come with having young children. I can truly say that the HydraFacial at WaterHouse Young has done wonders for my skin. I often get comments from people on how good my skin looks, especially in the days after I have just had a facial."
"Working in the beauty industry for the last 14 years has made me very conscious of my own skin. On visiting I was delighted with the warm welcome I received. The technology at the clinic was able to show me where I needed attention. It was decided I would benefit from a Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion facial. The following day my skin glistened and felt soft and revitalised. I can’t wait to go back!”
“The team at the Waterhouse Young Clinic are lovely. The skin analysis was really helpful to determine my weak areas and to plan a better skin care regime. I had a HydraFacial and have been using the recommended products and can already see a difference with my skin being clearer and brighter. Waterhouse Young have definitely just become my must-have ritual. I would certainly recommend people – in fact I already have.”
“Waterhouse Young is the epitome of luxury clinics that delivers outstanding results. Beautiful surroundings, knowledgeable staff and a solid understanding of skin and the way it ages, means that you leave with skin better than when you walked in. I can’t recommend them enough, my skin is positively glowing.”
“I can’t tell you how many people have commented on my skin following the facial. An hour of relaxing indulgence with lasting results. Ten Years Younger isn’t just a TV programme, it’s what happens at Waterhouse Young.”
“What a lovely experience – my skin felt instantly transformed. Going to the clinic is such a treat and the team welcome you like an old friend. I highly recommend all ladies (and men) that do – and those that should – come here.”
“I’d struggled with poor skin - adult acne exacerbated during pregnancy - for years and was completely fed up until a friend put me in touch with the lovely Anna at Waterhouse Young. Rosie then treated me and I am beyond thrilled with the results. Next stop hair removal.”
“The photos of my wedding are the proof in the pudding of Waterhouse Young’s Intraceuticals treatments and the TLC they give their clients. I had a young baby went I got married and, had I not know about this brilliant team and what they do for your skin, the pictures and wedding guests would tell another story!”
"I'd never had a skin treatment as such before but felt motivated to do so as my face was ageing faster than I liked - particularly obvious at work and definitely after several nights of entertaining clients! EndyMed with HydraFacials have been a revelation."
"Sometimes you try a treatment and know it’ll be your saviour for a long time to come! I love how mesotherapy has smoothed my facial lines and the glow it has brought back to my skin is incredible."
"I think I’ve discovered the facial of the century and I'm not the type to gush. Waterhouse Young claim to be experts on skin and they are. It was the first time I've had a clinical facial and I didn’t know what to expect so Anna talked me through the treatment - it was so comforting and knocked 10 years off me. I could not stop looking at my skin as it hasn't looked that good in a long time. You have to see it to believe it. It's incredible."

What is Soprano ICE™ and how does it work?
Soprano ICE™ represents the very latest in laser technology designed to remove unwanted hair faster, almost painlessly, on any skin type and at any time of the year.
Based on clinically proven SHR™ technology, Soprano ICE™ works by gradually heating the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages your hair follicles and prevents re-growth, while avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue. A high repetition rate of short pulses are delivered deep into the dermis, achieving high average power and therapeutically effective heat build-up, with no pain.
The sweeping In-Motion™ technique of moving the applicator repeatedly over the treatment area ensures full coverage, while the special ICE™ technology cools your skin surface to prevent superficial burns and allow for pain-free, yet highly effective hair removal.
What happens during a treatment?
As you will already have had a consultation with one of our aesthetic nurses/practitioners, we will have a good understanding of the areas of your face or body that we need to target.
Please shave within 24 hours prior to your treatment. For coarse hair, try to shave as close to your treatment time as possible. This will make your treatment even more comfortable.
We will welcome you into the treatment room and make sure that you feel comfortable and relaxed. No local anaesthetic is necessary, so we will simply give you a pair of dark glasses to wear during the treatment to protect your eyes. At this stage, one of our aesthetic nurses/practitioners will apply a cooling gel to your skin.
Using the Soprano ICE™ handheld device, we will move the tip of the applicator over the treatment area in a sweeping action, keeping the device constantly in motion in much the same way as you would move a paintbrush across a surface.
What can Soprano ICE™ be used to treat?
Soprano ICE™ can be used to remove excess or unwanted hair anywhere on your face or body. It is ideal for men and women, and can be used on any skin type, including darker skin and tanned skin.
Will my treatment hurt?
One of the benefits of hair removal with Soprano ICE™ is that it is extremely comfortable. Most of our clients compare the sensation to a hot stone massage. Of course, we want you to be as relaxed and comfortable as possible during your treatment, so if you do feel any discomfort at all, please tell the nurse or aesthetic practitioner carrying out your treatment so that they can lower the settings on the laser.
Certainly, Soprano ICE™ treatment bears no resemblance to the ‘flicking of an elastic band’ sensation usually associated with general laser hair removal.
How long will my Soprano ICE™ treatment take?
Soprano ICE™ is much faster than other laser hair removal treatments thanks to the IN-Motion technique, which collectively heats up and deactivates all the hair roots within a grid at the same time.
The length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated. A small area might take a little as five to ten minutes, while a full leg might take 30 minutes.
We will never rush your treatment. We want you to feel relaxed and comfortable at all times.
How much does Soprano ICE™ treatment cost?
Compared with a lifetime of shaving, waxing or plucking, Soprano ICE™ is certainly a worthwhile investment in both time and money-savings.
We will discuss your treatment options and proposed treatment plan during your initial consultation, including a full breakdown of the costs. Prices vary depending on the area(s) to be treated.
