I'm Kelly Whittaker, a Registered Nurse for 9 years and the face behind Illuminate Aesthetics and Skin Clinic. I've spent a large part of my career caring for acutely unwell adults in the NHS. Recent years have been spent as an Infection Control Nurse in the private sector and caring for private patients before and after major surgery. I decided it was time to take a step back into the acute world of nursing and returned to the NHS in 2019, and haven't looked back since. I work part time and flexibly in the NHS which allows me to run my aesthetics business alongside, a perfect balance which keeps me on my toes and my nursing skills up to date.
I set up the business in 2017 after a desire to branch out from my hospital nursing role to offer a service that would help people with their skin issues and improve their confidence and provide treatments that give natural looking results.
I've attended many accredited training courses over the years and built up my business gradually to offer a wide range of safe, effective, non-surgical solutions that improve your skin, and therefore your confidence and well-being too. Whether it's thin lips, wrinkles, under eye bags or dark spots that bother you when you look in the mirror, or the acne or rosacea that won't go away despite various different prescription treatments, we can help!
My ethos is to provide natural treatments that enhance your features whilst still looking like 'you'. Less is often more, and a series of subtle 'tweaks' can give you a refreshed, more youthful look without anyone knowing your secret! Come along for a free, friendly, no-obligation consultation at my Prestbury Clinic to discuss your skin concerns. We will come up with a treatment plan to suit your expectations, budget and lifestyle.
