The first face only clinic in the UK has opened in Marylebone and because the Tier 3 rules don’t affect salons, it’s allowed to stay open. Story is all about accessible aesthetic treatments and it’s run in partnership with the Harley Academy, the county’s top aesthetic medical school. As all of the doctors are trained to Level 7, the highest qualification in aesthetic medicine, your face is in very good hands.

We popped along to test out a Custom HydraFacial which cleanses and exfoliates the skin and has zero downtime. Perfect for all those Zoom Christmas celebrations. The custom facial is tweaked to suit the needs of different clients – we had dermablading which you may have seen on Instagram, where they use a medical-grade blade to lightly shave dead skin cells followed by a gentle peel. The results were instant, we were glowing from ear to ear and two weeks later our face is still baby soft.

The clinic offers a totally individual approach to treatments, so you get a thorough (and free) consultation before you commit to anything, and they offer 24/7 aftercare with their post-treatment hotline. With treatments spanning fillers, non surgical lifts and skin boosters to dermaplaning, microneedling and skin peels, Story is a one-stop shop for all your facial needs.
