Before her passion for aesthetics brought her to the United States, England native Nicola Cattle, who trained in the United Kingdom, France, and Switzerland, worked with a dermatologist and plastic surgeon in London. There she learned how to treat patients suffering from severe acne and how to combine aesthetic treatments with dermatological treatments.
Now, at Nicola of London Body & Skin Care, she continues this work alongside her international team of licensed aestheticians. They transform clients using a blend of European and American beauty techniques potent enough to erase fine age lines from even the most grizzled sea captain.
They customize treatments to each client’s skin type, sometimes veering from their extensive menu of spa services. The beauty experts perform European and green-tea facials, microdermabrasions, five PCA peels, ultrasound and red-light skin therapy, and a range of relaxation massages. They also perform Lymphobiology treatments—a process that relies on an enzyme peel, glycolic peel, or exfoliating grains used in tandem with steam and lymphatic drainage.
