The AestheticSource Award for Best Clinic North England

Best Clinic categories are awarded regionally. The award is only open to clinics that were established before 1 January 2020. Those that were established after should enter the Award for Best New Clinic UK & Ireland and will be judged on commitment to excellence in customer service, patient care and patient safety, as well as evidence of good feedback from patients. Aesthetics Media reserves the right to move your clinic entry to another regional or new clinic category if deemed appropriate. You will be notified of this change. If your clinic is part of a clinic group, only one clinic within the group may be entered and not the entire group. There will be no voting process and the winner will be decided by the Aesthetics Awards judging panel.

Novellus Aesthetics

Novellus Aesthetics in Newcastle was established in 2013 as a single handed practice by Dr Steven Land. Doubling in size every year since has seen it grow to have another full-time injector and two front of house staff over the last 3 years, with two further part-time injectors due to start soon.

Developing a reputation for natural results across lip augmentations, full face rejuvenation and with a flair for nose fillers has seen the clinic go from strength to strength. The in-house training and mentoring given to our new injector and the sheer amount of hard work she has put in has seen her develop rapidly and be courted by the major filler brands and added to Allergan's Future Leaders Programme. This led to the development of our own training programme of 1:1 foundation training, mentoring and advanced masterclasses, based on the latest evidence and maximum treating time which has become very successful in a short space of time.

Our treatments cover the full gamut of injectables as well as peels, laser hair removal and skincare (include our own range) and we are the only clinic in the north-east using ultrasound to guide our practice.

As before this has been a very different year as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our clinics were effectively closed from January to mid-April 2021. This was obviously a major threat to our viability but as before we believe we turned this threat into an opportunity.

We went ahead with registration with CQC in 2020 which allowed the doctors to treat patients that had qualified on medical grounds.

We worked on our website and established online purchasing of our products and have continued to see a significant increase in our SDS Rejuvenate Skin Care sales as a consequence.

We established a new service – Weight Management with a holistic approach with consultations with a doctor, nutritionist, and personal trainer.

We also provided remote consultation via Zoom which proved very successful especially for skin care and weight management.

Financially we are now benefitting from the initiatives and current monthly turnover has increased by 21% compared with pre pandemic levels.
