As I’ve been asked numerous times what’s my secret to looking young at forty, I thought it was about time to let the cat out of the bag… Sandbanks Clinic. That, living a healthy lifestyle and being young at heart helps too (obviously)! I first met Jessica Hutcheson, founder of Sandbanks Aesthetics and boss babe of Sandbanks Clinic a number of years ago and I’m so happy I did. Jessica introduced me to baby botox, fillers and facial peels to create an ‘au natural’ look. Her years of knowledge and experience in the industry really exposes how many frauds who don’t know what they’re doing in the aesthetics industry. She also works on enhancing your beauty without changing your features – I mean seriously, how many alien looking pouters can we take! If you’re ever thinking about having anything done, especially botox or fillers, please make sure you see a professional who knows what they’re doing. I would recommend having a consultancy session and you must do your research first.
About Jessica Hutcheson
Jessica graduated from University of California, Berkeley, then continued on to get her Masters in Medicine. She has worked as a family practitioner in her own private practice for 10 years. While continuing her degree in medicine she was also involved in the United States Army Medical Corp and left as a decorated Captain after 10 years of service.
She and her family moved to the UK where she attended a year at Dundee University School of Medicine and moved to Bournemouth. She brings a wealth of experience as a family practitioner and owner of Aphrodites Grecian Medical Spa in California. She has been a pioneer of aesthetic medicine, working closely with Orange County Plastic Surgery for the past 4 years working on high profile clients, and has had the pleasure of knowing and working with the leading manufacturers of facial products in the world. Jessica trains other nurses and doctors in the field of Laser therapy throughout the London area, and brings her state of the art Candela Gentlemax laser from California.
“I have a passion for aesthetic medicine and feel that Botox, facial fillers and laser treatments need to be considered an art form, that they cannot be injected just by anyone, it has to be a medical professional, who can gently transform someone into a younger them, not transform them into someone else”.
Meet the Sandbanks Clinic Aesthetics Team
Jessica only recently opened Sandbanks Clinic this year, she handpicked the best team to deliver exceptional results which include aesthetic therapy, facials, makeup, foot health, brows and lashes to wellness and counselling.
