Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Charlotte was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given products that were within my budget.
I was able to pick the products up with an hour, all the safety restrictions where in place and worked very well.
I was very excited to use my new skin care products.
And I was not disappointed, they were amazing and my skin felt amazing too.
I was 100% satisfied with the service I received from the moment I called Elite, every member of staff was friendly and professional.
I am looking forward to attending the clinic to have some treatments very soon.
Thank you ladies for all your help and for making me feel at ease and confident with the viviscal professional products I purchased.


Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. Confidential pictures are taken to review progress which is great. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. (Dermal Fillers Bromley)


Charlotte was great and gave some good advice for my skin! Thank you and will definitely recommend your services now I know where you are :)


A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great clinic, lovely, clean and modern. Charlotte was excellent, knowledgeable about the treatment whilst also friendly. The facial itself was very enjoyable and my skin looks and feels tighter and smoother. I highly recommend the Hydrafacial Treatment.


Dr Shirin’s professional approach fills you with confidence. The clinic is modern and efficiently run. They certainly do their utmost to help and advise their clients. I am 100% satisfied that I made the right decision in choosing Elite Aesthetics!
