From the Maidenhead Advertiser:

PEOPLE who suffer from skin problems can now be treated at a private retreat, away from the public eye, thanks to a Taplow cosmetologist.

Louise Symons runs the Ivy Retreat, a skincare salon situated in a quiet secluded area in Boundary Road, Taplow. As it is totally private it is the perfect place to relax.

"I have years of experience, specifically in problematic and aging skin. My clients say the Bella Peel microdermabrasion is second to none and is not available elsewhere in the area. I pioneered Diamond microdermabrasion 8 years ago and have now replaced that system with the latest infusion technology."

Louise treats a range of problems, from acne and wrinkles to stretch marks and scars, but never loses sight of the privacy many people crave as they receive treatment.

She said: "The best thing about the retreat is that it is just that - people can leave here and get straight in their car and go home without having to walk through the centre of town or see anyone else.

Louise is different from a dermatologist because she deals with image problems, not medical issues, and does not treat serious infections, but that does not detract from the serious nature of her role and the happiness many people get from her treatments. In today’s economic environment I aim to provide value for money with all my treatments and products.

Where time allows a complementary Reiki session can be incorporated into treatments such as the clay body wrap or the hydropeptide facial. This adds to the comfort and relaxation of these treatments making time at the Retreat even more enjoyable.
