UK franchise celebrates the vital role undertaken by its nursing team.

When International Nurses Day was celebrated globally during May, 

Laser Clinics UK took this opportunity to thank its own team of qualified nursing clinicians. The fast-expanding franchise organised a series of events and initiatives to honour its nurses.

Every member of its nursing team received a gift which included a collection of products, along with an assortment of sweet treats. There was also a social media campaign asking local communities to nominate registered nurses, with those enjoying the greatest recognition winning a £250 gift voucher to use at their local Laser Clinic.

Kathryn Bran, the Global Head of Inject & Body at Laser Clinics Group, said: “Nurses bring a unique blend of clinical expertise, patient-centred care, and ethical integrity to the field of aesthetics.

“At Laser Clinics Group, we have over 400 registered cosmetic nurses who take the time to educate patients about treatment options, expected outcomes and post-procedure care. They ensure that clients make informed decisions, resulting in optimal results. 

“As part of our community we make certain there is support, education and opportunity. We are proud to recognise and celebrate the invaluable contributions made by nurses within our network.”

Laser Clinics began 16 years ago in Australia, with the very first outlet opening in Sydney, New South Wales. Since then, it has expanded across every Australian state, before arriving in New Zealand in November 2018.

Less than a year later the company had opened its first franchise in the UK and, in January 2022, reached Canada where five months later Laser Clinics unveiled their 200th global business. Within the UK there are treatment centres in almost 50 towns or cities.

From Australia to New Zealand, and Canada to the UK, the company perform approximately 4.2m treatments every year. Worldwide, Laser Clinics have a team of over 2,500 fully trained therapists who are all registered nurses, doctors or clinicians.

According to research by BACN (British Association of Cosmetic Nurses), nurses provide 54% of dermal filler treatments and 52% of Botulinum Toxin treatments. Registered nurses at Laser Clinics specialise in cosmetic services including dermal filler and skin boosters. Those employed by Laser Clinics are registered prescribers.

Each patient journey begins with a comprehensive consultation, when the allocated nurse will start by understanding the needs and wishes of the patient.

Laser Clinics UK provides personalised treatment plans, with all procedures carried out using industry leading technologies. And their nurses never stop learning, as they undertake ongoing extensive training to ensure safe and effective practice.

Alex Goodenough, who works for the company’s clinic in Plymouth, has been a registered nurse for 10 years. Five of these years have been spent in expanding his knowledge of medical aesthetics and he admits: “One of my most memorable experiences was working with a patient to help them restore their confidence.

“They finally began feeling like themselves again, through consultations and a personalised treatment plan. The patient was given a course of dermal filler to help with the signs of ageing.”

His advice for anyone wishing to join this specialist area is “to start slowly. Research the industry, undertake training, understand your anatomy and remain updated with industry developments.”

Laser Clinic Treatments: Among their offerings are treatments for enlarged pores, acne scarring, uneven skin tone, wrinkles and dry skin. The company’s cosmetic injectables provide dermal fillers and lip enhancements. Laser hair removal is especially popular, while the clinics can also improve body contouring and muscle strength. Visitors can purchase a whole range of affordable products which they can take away as an additional benefit to their in-clinic treatment. The full list of offerings can only be viewed by visiting their website.

About International Nurses Day: Is celebrated annually on May 12th, which is the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. To mark this day last month, Laser Clinics honoured nurses within its network for their professionalism and commitment in delivering industry-leading care. Globally, Laser Clinics employs more than 325 Registered Nurses.
