I'm Tawa, the owner of TD Aesthetics. I qualified as a nurse in 1994, and worked in cardiology, general surgery and cosmetic surgery in the NHS and the private sector. I moved to risk management and governance in 2002, working for the government regulator of health and social care for over 10 years. I then worked for private health and care providers, ensuring their services were safe and met government regulations.
I wanted to come back to patient interaction within my nursing career, and took the leap with my first aesthetics training course in anti-wrinkle treatments, in Feb 2018. Since then, I've completed a variety of aesthetics training courses, in foundation level and advanced dermal filler injection techniques, skin rejuvenation via mesotherapy, injectable skin boosters, micro-needling, chemical peels and medical facials. I qualified as an independent prescriber in 2020, meaning that I can offer a seamless service where prescription medications are required, as well as being able to respond quickly in the event of a complication.
I love what I do, especially when I can see a person's confidence increase after their treatments. Everyone is different, and all people are treated as individuals, with a detailed initial consultation to work out the best treatment plan for their needs. I offer a whole service approach, meaning that I work out a detailed programme to help each person achieve their goals with regard to their skin and health. The programme could include clinic treatments, medical grade skincare for use at home, oral supplements as well as advice and support. I want everyone to find their own kind of beautiful at TD Aesthetics!
I'm a member of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses, as well as the Aesthetics Complications Expert group, and various other aesthetic practitioner networks. This allows me to keep up to date with industry changes, innovations and training, bringing the best and most client-centred care to TD Aesthetics.
