Victoria Smith

Director of Aesthetics / Aesthetic Practitioner

Victoria Smith is an Aesthetics Practitioner and the founder and Director of Absolute Aesthetics. She graduated from the University of Gloucestershire in June 2002 with a Degree in Community Studies with Combined Studies (Sociology and Psychology). After discovering an interest in medicine and aesthetics, she returned to college to obtain the relevant Diplomas in Anatomy and Physiology. She continued with her training and set up Absolute Aesthetics in February 2008.

Victoria specialises in the removal of skin lesions using a minimally invasive procedure called Electro Surgery and has a keen interest in the research and development of this procedure and its effectiveness in the removal of more complex lesions such as Xanthelasma and cysts.

Victoria was very interested in the idea of using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy to treat hair loss in men and women. Her results have demonstrated that it can also be used to improve the appearance of thinning hair and bald patches on the scalp as it activates dormant hair follicles, stimulating them to start growing again.

Based on the success of her patient’s results, Victoria was invited to be the first PRP therapy UK trainer for one of the major suppliers to the aesthetics industry.

Victoria is well-known in the aesthetics industry and has become a key opinion leader. She contributes regular articles to the Journal of Aesthetic Nursing (JOAN) (www.aestheticnursing.co.uk) and sits on the editorial board of PMFA Magazine.

She also speaks nationally and internationally at aesthetic conferences.

He concluded his NHS commitments in 2011 to take up a full-time career in aesthetics.

Kuldeep specialises in Botox for the upper and lower face, helping to balance facial muscles and techniques such as the Nefertiti Neck Lift and masseter reduction which produce a much softer contour to the lower face, neck and jaw line. He also uses dermal fillers to rehydrate the back of the hands, neck and décolleté as well as soften lines and deep folds on the face due to loss of volume.

He is the Global Brand Ambassador and Key Opinion Leader for Galderma, the supplier of Restylane (dermal filler and skin boosters) and the international trainer for Silhouette Soft.

Words from Neelam …

“My mission in this lifetime is to touch as many human hearts as I can with love and compassion and help individuals let go of their self limiting beliefs so they can embrace their gifts and true potential. I believe every human being has a unique gift that they bring to this world. It just needs to be uncovered and awakened.”
