New Harrogate beauty, health, & wellbeing centre offers aesthetics and hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Yorkshire
The historic spa town of Harrogate has had a reputation for its health-giving treatments and ‘medicinal’ waters ever since William Slingsby discovered the first spring in 1571. People flocked to enjoy its ‘chalybeate’ waters (which contained iron), and to indulge in hot and cold treatments.
And the tradition continues today but using the very latest discoveries to improve how you look and feel.
The family businesses run by sisters, Pure Skin Clinic, run by Jade Hickson and The Heal-Air, run by Tarra Hickson, have joined forces and combined to create a new aesthetics and wellbeing centre, all under one roof, in the heart of the town.
Pure Skin Clinic
Pure Skin Clinic has gained a reputation as one of Yorkshire’s premier anti-aging, injectable and laser treatment provider since opening its original aesthetics clinic in Hessle, East Yorkshire, and has trained dozens of aesthetics practitioners and nurses from the Pure Academy.
It is now opening a new flagship clinic in Harrogate and has teamed up with ‘The Heal-Air’ Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to provide a co-located, holistic aesthetics, health and wellbeing centre.
Located on Cold Bath Road, Pure’s services include everything from state of the art laser treatment to the newest advancements in biochemical cellular renewal.
Pure offers non-invasive treatments aiming to slow down the ageing process and works with people who would like to change an aspect of their appearance to produce results that harmonise with their natural look, to optimise their appearance and beauty. Treatments include nose, jaw and lip reshaping. Pure’s success has been predicated on founder Jade Hickson’s dedication to understanding the scientific principles behind skin care techniques, allied with her philosophy of enhancing the pre-existing, natural look of clients.
The Heal-Air provides Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT); a non-invasive treatment that involves relaxing in a specialist chamber whilst breathing in almost pure pressurised Oxygen.
HBOT has been used to treat a range of issues including chronic fatigue, skin conditions, migraines, wound healing, sports recovery and irregular sleeping patterns.
The Heal-Air began after co-founder, Tarra Hickson, was left struggling with symptoms of 'long covid'; including fatigue, muscle pains and brain fog. She tried various treatments and medication before discovering HBOT and finding it was the only therapy to make a difference.
The elevated amount of oxygen consumed, combined with the increased pressure helps the body absorb higher levels of oxygen into the bloodstream, brain cells, and nervous system. Exponents of the treatment say this helps accelerate and promote healing and can help fight infection, pain, or inflammation; providing a boost to the immune system, to the skin and to your mood and mental health.
The non-invasive therapy simply involves relaxing in a specialist chamber whilst breathing through an oxygen mask. Each session lasts for 60 or 90 minutes. The chambers have windows on all sides so you can see outside, a person will be outside the chamber throughout the whole process. Customers typically choose to watch a favourite TV series, listen to music, read a book or simply relax whilst the chamber works its magic.
Pure Group Chief Executive Jade Hickson said: “Harrogate is a natural choice for Pure’s second branch because the town has a style and elegance which makes it a perfect setting for an aesthetics clinic. The Harrogate branch of Pure Skin Clinic will offer the same treatments as our award winning Hessle branch. The people of Harrogate can expect a warm welcome, friendly staff and, above all, honest opinion and expert treatments.
“We pride ourselves on working with each client as individuals; we have occasionally turned down treatments for clients seeking something extreme, which would not compliment their natural look, rather than take the commission. In the age of social media we don't want to contribute to the idea that the Ideal man or woman must look like a filter.
“That being said, we have intervened to deliver life changing interventions for some clients who are unhappy with a particular aspect of their appearance. We offer anti-aging treatments as well as facials, consultations for skin conditions, general advice, massage therapy and so much more.”
