Tempted by tweakments but nervous at the thought of visiting a private cosmetic clinic? Then the latest news from John Lewis may be of interest, because the high street stalwart has announced it’s going to start offering more aesthetic treatments in-store.
John Lewis & Partners has teamed up with the Cavendish Clinic, which has over a decade’s worth of experience in this realm, to offer everything from high-tech facials to injectables. There will also be advanced ‘cosmeceutical’ skincare, including brands such as SkinCeuticals and Dr Levy, as well as CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT body treatments.
The aesthetic treatments will be delivered by specialist, qualified practitioners, so you don’t have to worry about a needle-wielding newbie approaching your precious face. There’s also an over-25 rule and strict consultation process in place for injectables such as Botox and fillers.
The move comes in response to in-depth customer research and feedback from John Lewis, showing that a high proportion of customers were interested in advanced beauty treatments, ranging from laser hair removal to high-tech, bespoke facials and anti-wrinkle treatments. Following a successful pilot with Cavendish Clinics in five John Lewis stores in 2021, the collaboration has now been extended and will be launching across further stores nationwide throughout 2022.
‘We know there’s increasing awareness and demand among consumers for advanced beauty treatments and after careful consideration, we were keen to collaborate with a trusted, medical clinic brand which would deliver this service,’ says Jason Wilary-Attew, Head of Beauty at John Lewis. ‘In the last two years, we’ve seen an at-home beauty tech boom and launched our first ever beauty tech department with LED light masks and facial toning devices. Our collaboration with the Cavendish Clinic is an acceleration of these services, where customers can visit a clinic in selected John Lewis stores to experience Cavendish bespoke skincare plans and consultations.’
As for prices, a 30-minute Hydrafacial costs £85, lip enhancing fillers from £295 and one area of anti-wrinkle injections costs £195. There are also packages available which allow you to save overall.
The treatments are only available in selected John Lewis stores at present, although there are plans for expansion in the future. For a full list of stores and treatments, click here.
