Welcome! I’m Gemma Montgomery
I am a Cosmetic Nurse Specialist and provide help for people with the following skin concerns
- Signs of ageing
- Troublesome conditions such as acne, scarring and pigmentation
Working independently from my discreet clinic in the heart of Halifax, it’s safe to say I’m a little obsessed and dedicated to my work in skin care. Not content with just serving people in my geographic location, my mission is to help people far and wide gain healthy, youthful looking skin.
Working with honesty and compassion, I will only perform selected treatments and recommend products and services that deliver results, are rigorously assessed for safety and are of the upmost quality. My wish is to treat people who want to look good for their age, yet remain looking natural, appearing youthful, healthy, fresh and rejuvenated.
I aim to inspire my clients to take back control of their skin. To uncover the truths and dispel the myths people are told and believe, in relation to skin care and skin treatments. Myths often fed by the media and company advertising with celebrity endorsement.
That’s because I genuinely care.
My clients are special to me and I want them to feel and look the best version of themselves, so they are happy and confident. I take pride in delivering a high quality personal service and regularly invest in keeping my knowledge and skills up to date with new advances and research. I’m an active member of the following UK regulatory bodies. So you can be sure I work to evidence based, high standards of excellence:
Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)
British Association Of Cosmetic Nurses (BACN)
UK Academy of Aesthetic Practitioners (UKAAP)
As part of my high quality service, I’ve created an exclusive online members club.
- Member only offers and promotions
- In depth understanding on the effective treatments and products I offer

How did I get here?
Beginning in 1997 I worked within the NHS in three different roles till 2009. By working hard, I reached senior level at a young age. During my work in health promotion I saw many people struggle with their appearance in direct response to their health.
Outside of my work I’ve always had a keen interest in skin, brought on by the fact that I suffered terribly with troublesome skin for 15 years, and subsequently the first signs of premature ageing. With failed attempts from numerous health professionals I healed myself using my own experience and knowledge.
Although I enjoyed my NHS roles and the invaluable experience it gave me, I always felt that something was missing and that I wasn’t fulfilling my true calling.
With my passion for skin, medical knowledge and artistic flair, I saw a huge gap in expert advice available for those looking for help with their skin concerns. Being an independent prescriber which enables me to prescribe medication, just as a doctor does. I knew instantly that I could make a positive difference to people’s lives.
The pivotal point was the sudden death of my nana (she was a parent to me) and coinciding with the birth of my first child; it was an intensely emotional time. Realising how fragile life is and somewhat terrified, I took a leap of faith and decided to follow my passion.
Fast-forward five years; I’m a busy working mum of two, doing work I love, which makes me feel alive each day. I am proud to say my business has grown organically through word of mouth recommendation and a high volume of repeat clients, for which I am eternally grateful. xx
A little secret before you finish reading… Just in case you were wondering what the butterfly symbol on my logo represents, it’s transformation. A daily reminder to me, that out of the darkness something beautiful can still emerge.
