HIFU & Fat Freezing Clinics coming to Wantage

HIFU works by delivering high intensity focused ultrasound to the dermal and sub-dermal layers of the skin causing trauma to the underlying tissue, therefore triggering the process of renewed collagen production. The skin will look noticeably tighter, lifted and have a much more youthful glow.
HIFU is fast becoming the alternative to the more invasive anti-ageing treatments available on the market as it promotes natural collagen production and promises long lasting results.

About Bare Essentials

Bare Essentials is a professional beauty salon in south Oxfordshire, owned by myself, Becky Lay. I’m a therapist with a passion for aesthetics – I trained with the best at world-renowned Champney’s spa in 2000 and have been working in the beauty industry ever since, gaining experience in some wonderful salons.

I took the plunge and opened my own beauty salon in West Hagbourne, south Oxfordshire, back in 2011. Bare Essentials is now a successful beauty business and I’m proud to offer a variety of beauty treatments, from pampering and relaxing to results-driven skin treatments, laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation.

In September 2019 we will be opening a second clinic up in Wantage, offering aesthetic treatments only. This will hopefully bring some exciting new treatments!

We pride ourselves on putting out clients first at Bare Essentials, and we work with you to make sure that you get the results you’re looking for every time.

*Please be aware we work on appointment only at Bare Essentials*
