Start with a smile
Carve out a mini morning routine for yourself that involves something that brings you joy. This could be anything from stretching, to listening to a piece of music that you love or enjoying you favourite cup of tea or coffee.
This one is super simple, drink plenty of water throughout the day. Not only is it good for your mind and your mood, but hydration is also excellent for your skin and will help you to look and feel your best.
Hold yourself high
Focusing on maintaining a correct posture can not only help to prevent aches and pains, but also boost your self-esteem, helping you feel and appear more confident.
Keep on moving
Make time each day to move and accelerate your heart rate, this could be anything from a brisk walk to a gym session.
Create boundaries around screen time, a constant stream of emails, texts, calls, and social media can increase stress and take you out of the moment. Switching off for as little as 15 minutes a day can help you to relax and stay present.
Indulge in the things that make you feel good, whether that’s reading, having a bath or catching up with a friend. We offer some wonderfully relaxing treatments such as our Epionce Soothing Facials or Microdermabrasion that will leave your skin glowing.
Give yourself the opportunity to sleep between 7-9 hours a night, During sleep, your brain eliminates toxins, consolidates memories, and builds new neural pathways meaning you can practice self-care whilst you are dreaming!
Following the latest Government updates announcing a national lockdown in England, we wanted to update you on what this means for your appointment at Snowberry Lane.
Due to the escalating nature of COVID-19 and the tighter restrictions on travel, it is vital as a leading medical business that we play our part in helping to support and protect our NHS colleagues.
At Snowberry Lane we work proudly in conjunction with leading industry bodies to develop the best safety protocols.
The on-going safety and care of our clients and colleagues is our highest priority. As a result, we have made the decision that our clinic will be operating at reduced hours to ensure all essential medical treatments can continue to be carried out. You can be rest assured, as always, this will be in a CQC registered, clinical environment, ensuring the highest standard of hygiene, treatment and care from our expert team of doctors and nurses.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to treat any clients that do not have an essential medical need while lockdown restrictions are in place. As such, we will need to postpone any upcoming appointments that are not medically essential.
We will be in touch to re-book your appointment for a later date. As you can imagine, our clinic team is incredibly busy, so please bear with us while we get in touch with all affected clients over the next few days and please do keep an eye on our website for updates.
As we navigate through these tough times, our passionate and knowledgeable team will continue to keep you up to date with all the latest information.
From all of us at Snowberry Lane, please keep safe and well.
Happy New Year from the team at Snowberry Lane Clinic. We’ve
got some exciting plans for 2021, including the introduction of some new and
exciting treatments so keep an eye on our social media channels for more
We’re all rooting for an excellent year after quite a tough 2020, so wanted to start with some resolutions. It feels great to start the year with good intentions, but these can easily give way to disappointment if we feel like we are falling short. We’d like to share our framework to making this year’s resolutions as achievable and rewarding as possible:
Don’t try and tackle too much at once, keep you
list short, ideally 5 items or less – one goal achieved will feel better than
ten missed targets.
Break any large goals into smaller parts with
timings where possible. This will give you small victories along the path to
achieving your main aim.
Reward yourself when you complete things that
contribute to the overall goal.
Share your ambitions with people that you trust,
this adds the element of accountability to help you stay on track.
Don’t give too much weight to minor set-backs,
don’t let them derail your efforts, accept them and move on.
Year on year the most common resolutions in the UK focus on
fitness and weight loss. If you are looking for a bit of help or advice in
regards to fitness and weight loss please don’t hesitate to get in touch by
calling us on 01225 700072.
We’d like to wish all of our clients a very Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year. The clinic will be closed for Christmas from 4pm on
Thursday the 24th December until Saturday the 2nd of
January 2021. We look forward to welcoming you back in the New Year.
Now that the cold weather has set in and we’re adding layers
of clothing to stay warm rather than putting our skin on show, you might wonder
why we want to talk Laser Hair Removal.
Laser Hair Removal is a safe and effective way of reducing the appearance of areas of unwanted hair. However, it requires multiple treatments, each of which have to be set several weeks apart to allow the hair in the treatment area to be in a state of growth. The reason that the hair has to be in a state of growth for the treatment to work, is to allow the laser to travel down the hair to the follicle, collapsing the follicle and preventing future hair growth.
Each individual responds differently to treatment, although
as a guide most individuals require a minimum of 6-9 treatments with 6-10 weeks
between each treatment, which means a full course of treatment could take
approximately 8 months minimum. Starting treatment now would mean you would be
able to see results next Summer.
Another benefit to starting treatment in Winter is that as part of the treatment process you need to ensure that the treatment area is not exposed to the sun, which is much easier to do in the colder months when we are wrapped up.
Best for treating: Unwanted hair with a dark pigment, this
is because dark hair facilitates the travel of the laser’s energy. Unfortunately,
light hair is not able to be treated in the same way.
Number of treatments: 6-9 minimum treatments, spaced
6-10 weeks apart.
Getting ready for Treatment:
Steer clear of the sun in the month lead up to treatment
Stop waxing, the laser has to travel along the hair to work
The day before your treatment you’ll need to remove the hair in the treatment area by shaving.
Treatment Duration: 30-60 minutes depending on
Anaesthetic: Topical anaesthetic cream
Sensitivity Period: You might experience some discomfort
and redness during and after treatment, which should only last a few hours.
Back To Work: Straight away, there’s no downtime
for treatment, but if you’ve had treatment on your face you might not want to
go back to work immediately.
Duration of Results: Top up treatments might be
required depending on the individual. This is usually annually or less.
For more information give us a call on 01225 700072.

loved one, why not get your friend or family member a Gift Voucher for
Snowberry Lane Clinic? We can create a bespoke voucher for you for any

Best for existing clients:

treatments, then a voucher of any denomination to contribute towards this cost
would be a very thoughtful gift.
Best for new clients:
If a friend or family member has spoken about wanting to
come to the clinic, but hasn’t made that final step, then a £30 voucher for a
consultation is a very popular choice.
