Timeless Allure is re-opening 28th July

We can finally announce that we’ll be re-opening…

… from Tuesday the 28th July 2020!

You may have seen from the internet that we were given a date to re-open of Monday 13th July. Unfortunately, this date was just too last minute to get everything sorted at the clinic, not least because good quality PPE is like gold dust at the moment, and as most of you know we donated all of our supplies to the NHS at the start of Lockdown.

Facial treatments?

We are also hoping that by that date we will be able to carry out facial treatments. Currently, we have a farcical situation where you can have a skin tag removed from your collar bone area, but you can’t have your chin waxed!! There has been a LOT of media coverage about this, so hopefully by the 28th July there will be more clarity over this.

At the moment the situation is this:

  • NO Facials of any type
  • NO Plasma treatments from the neck up
  • NO Chemical Peel treatments from the neck up
  • NO Microneedling treatments from the neck up
  • NO Radio Frequency or Ultrasound treatments from the neck up
  • NO Eyelash/Brow treatments
  • NO Facial waxing

This is obviously very irritating for us. As you all know, we have always been a bespoke, appointment only service, and because of the number of sterile procedures that we do, we only need a couple of tweaks to our procedures to comply with the government guidelines (e.g. we will now be going paperless!).

So, we will be back on the 28th July, when hopefully we may be able to restart our clinical skincare programmes again, in full.

Good news (we think)!

This morning’s Covid-19 update suggests that “close contact services” will be allowed again from 1st August!!!

This covers things like plasma, peels, microneedling, electrogalvanic treatments, and traditional facials, as well as blemish removal in the facial area.

So the Prosecco is still on ice, while we wait for the written government announcement, hopefully released later today.


We will be opening up the online booking service a bit closer to the time, so for the moment please message/text us and we’ll get a convenient slot for you sorted.

In the meantime, we’d like to take this opportunity to say a massive THANK YOU to all of you that have sent messages of support over these seemingly endless months. It’s been tough, but it’s really helped to hear your lovely words.

Take care, stay safe and we’ll see you VERY soon!!

Covid-19: Temporary pause

Covid-19: Temporary pause

In light of the increasing uncertainty surrounding the corona virus outbreak, we have very sadly decided to pause offering treatments until further notice.

Whilst not being directly subject to the official government guidance to close, we feel that, given the escalating spread of the virus, we can no longer be assured that we can guarantee your safety.

We’re devastated to have to do this, and we know some of you will be disappointed, but please remember this is our livelihood, we have not made this decision lightly. We feel it is morally the right thing to do to protect you all and the wider community.

Please be assured that we will extend the validity period of all existing gift vouchers, and will be contacting all of you with appointments booked for the coming weeks, to reschedule. Please ignore any system-generated appointment reminders.

Please also don’t be concerned if you are undergoing a course of advanced skincare treatment – we will contact you to offer support and guidance so that your progress is not diminished.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our lovely clients for your unstinting support. Be assured that this is a temporary blip, life is scary right now and for most of us unprecedented, but if we pull together, we will come out stronger. Please look after yourselves, and others if you can. Stay safe.

Anne & Colin

Coronavirus / Covid-19 Precautions

A few people have asked if we’re open for appointments. The answer is yes.

I’m trying to steer a course between unnecessary risks and overreacting — monitoring the situation daily and taking heed of official advice.

Measures I am taking which affect you (some have been in place for weeks):

  • I’ll ask you to wash your hands on arrival.
  • I’ll ask you about
    • any recent overseas visits
    • if you have any symptoms like cough, fever, shortness of breath
    • if you have been in contact with a known or suspected case of the virus
  • I’d prefer contactless payment if possible (but sanitizer is available if you need to use buttons or cash!).
  • I won’t be treating people with symptoms of illness ( but we never have; your body should be in good health to get the most of our treatments.)

Other measures I’m taking behind the scenes

  • Staff will wash hands between clients ( of course, that’s always been the case 🙂 )
  • Cleaning and sanitising all contact areas between clients as usual. This includes equipment, treatment areas, but now also door handles, toilets, chairs etc.
  • Normal sterilisation practices are being followed for tools and equipment. Some equipment (like microneedles) is sterile single-use anyway.
  • Of course, if Timeless Allure staff were to develop symptoms, we would close until cleared.
  • We’re in the fortunate position of being a small, appointment-only studio. So there won’t be anyone present except yourself and the therapist.

It’s all commonsense really. It isn’t in our interest for you (or us) to become ill.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you for your continued support!

2019 Year End

The days are getting longer and brighter. Is your skin?

Yes, we’ve passed the shortest day of the year and looking forward to spring. It has been a mild winter (so far — fingers crossed). That is good news for our skin. Not such good news for Christmas snow scenes, but you can’t have everything. :-/

New & Improved

It seems a long time ago but we only opened the doors at Timeless Allure a year ago. It has been an active year, meeting new clients and friends. We’ve been busy introducing several new treatments, and improvements to the existing ones.

If you haven’t visited our website recently you may not know about these

  • Plasma Pen treatments for lines, lifting, crows’ feet etc.
  • Microneedling for so many things I won’t try to list them
  • Blemish Removal for skin tags, acne scars, moles etc.
  • Light Therapy Facial (kills acne bacteria, improves healing & skin clarity)
  • Chemical Peels — the range of peels available is vastly greater than our original offerings, so we can find the perfect one for your unique skin

Free LED therapy, to fight the Dark Days of winter

For a short period in the new year, we plan to offer light therapy as a complementary add-on to any facial, but as loyal subscribers feel free to ask for it when you book your facial, and we’ll add it on for you :-). It will add 30 (very relaxing) minutes 30 mins to the treatment time, and can be added to:
Chemical Peel • Microdermabrasion • Anti-ageing Facial • Classic Facial • Aromatherapy Facial • Galvaderm Facial • Male Facial • Microneedling

WaxingMassage, & Eye treatments and of course our wide range of Facial Treatments continue to be very popular. Everything is on our completely-revamped website.

Winner of our competition

Some of you may have met us at the High Ongar Community Christmas Event, where we set up a stall (it was a lot of fun) and met many nice people. We’re pleased to announce that a winner has been selected from the draw we ran that day.  They’ve been informed, so to everyone else: better luck next time.

Shameless plug

As always, we really appreciate your reviews and recommendations.  So if you haven’t yet, please

If you’d like to tell your friends about us (perhaps by forwarding this email), we won’t object :-). What better way to make use of our generous Refer-a-Friend scheme.

Mail and website, downs and ups.

We had a hiccup with email over the past few days. We can’t be sure that the mails we’ve sent out have arrived 🙁 (so we’re re-sending them).

More importantly, we can’t be sure mail you’ve sent us got through. So if you sent us something, and it bounced, please try again (sorry!).

On the plus side we’ve made some tweaks which should make the website quite a bit faster than it used to be :-).

website maintenance

If you can see this, congratulations to both of us 😃

You’re reading this on the new website now (you may even be the first visitor), and I’m probably asleep!

Take a look around and let us know what you think.
