A word from Susan Routledge

Founder and Director

From the first day of opening, I wanted to develop a clinic and team that resonated with passion to offer the most researched effective treatments and products available.

Now after nearly 35 years of staying at the forefront of technology, we are now pushing boundaries of hygiene to make our treatments the safest and most sterile available by moving even our most standard treatments to a medical grade.

We have an exciting calendar of events and new clinics, including Podiatry, and also the introduction of totally tailored treatments for your specific needs.

I am so immensely proud of our team who have years of experience with finishing Touch. I would also like to thank you as our clients, for making our working days such as pleasure.

Here are our most FAQs

Why we chose our Laser?

We introduced our 1st laser back in 2009 when you had to go through the rigorous and lengthy training and registration process to be registered as an Independent Hospital with the Health Care Commission and then the Quality Care Commission.
We have always worked with the very best laser & VPL systems recommended by our registered Laser Advisors.
We introduced our very latest laser due to it emitting 66% more power than proprietary systems for optimum results and comfort.

What that means to you as a Client?

It means that we can treat every skin tone and a larger range of hair tones safely, quickly and with virtually no discomfort and no downtime. As you can imagine, the market is flooded with lasers and you can be safe in the knowledge that we have extensively researched the best possible laser system and very latest technology.
