Shelley Folkes

About

Hi, I’m Shelley and I’m the clinical Director and lead practitioner at The Glow Clinic.

I am a registered nurse, graduating from Southampton University in 2001. I have worked predominantly in emergency medicine (16 years) but have also worked in acute medicine, community nursing and trauma. I trained in aesthetics 5 years ago in Manchester and set up the originally named Shelley Folkes Aesthetics in Cheltenham within a year of completing my training, before moving into our Hereford based clinic in May of 2008.

I’m extensively trained within clinical nursing including suturing, advanced life support, anaphylaxis management and infection control. Within aesthetics I have undertaken multiple advanced training courses, extensive skin care training and complications management courses with renowned aesthetics doctor Dr Tim Pearce, ensuring that our clients are as safe as they ever could be.

I’m deeply passionate about ethics in aesthetics, I work with people on their self belief and self esteem, using aesthetics as a tool to enhance their overall well being, never seeking to do anything unnecessary or dramatically face changing.

By really getting to know my clients I build incredibly close relationships with them, I really get to know who they are and work with them on getting them feeling awesome in their own skin. With a history of acne myself I have a level of understanding that my clients really appreciate.

We have an incredible rebook rate that I am so proud of, testament to our slightly different approach within the industry. With an impeccable safety record and an approach that is entirely client focused we provide a service that just goes that extra mile.

Testimonials

I have visisted Shelley several times in her clinic to address my skin concerns (ageing, dryness) and have always found her to be completely professional, knowledgeable but at the same time so empathetic. She has recently provided me with a bespoke skincare package and I am achieving fantastic results already. I can not wait for her fabulous clinic to open up again for more face friendly visits!

I feel like this review should be titled the diary of the Aesthetics Cynic or perhaps from Cynic to Pom Pom waving fan; I first came to Shelley feeling pretty hopeless but still desperately seeking a way to cure my adult acne that did not involve extremely strong drugs. The results for that were incredible but something else even more magical happened. From the moment I stepped in, the care, attention to detail, ethics, vast knowledge and results, transformed how I felt about aesthetics. Not through Shelley’s suggestion, ever, that’s the thing you see, I have never once been suggested a treatment I did not ask about first. My confidence in her abilities and seeing the results of other clients meant my cyclical eyes began to open. I realised that in Shelley’s hands I could look like the best version of myself. That treatments exist to do a little correction that would not change the way I look but rather just make me glow. I am so excited that I can grow old gracefully AND have aesthetic treatments!
