DianeFounder & Owner

When you come in for a consultation for hair removal, either Diane or Janice will go through your full medical history to try and find out the reason for the unwanted hair. After this, we will assess the area to work out and discuss the choices you have including, how the treatment will work for you. However, we may be able to carry out a test at the same time as the consultation.

Don’t worry about the quantity of hair you want removed, or the location of the hair, be it face or body. We have dealt with it all before – you are not the only one – we can assure you we are used to dealing with it!

We have now welcomed Victoria to our team at Diane Matthews Clinic for a few months as Victoria is a Mature University student entering her 2nd year of study as a podiatrist. Victoria's degree course is for a period of 3 years and she is following in her father's 'footsteps' (pardon the pun!) as he is also a podiatrist and works locally in Gidea Park. I am sure these subjects will be a great topic of conversation for our clients.

Victoria has already completed one degree course in Business Studies and is now planning her future in Podiatry. Victoria's work here will be helping Janice and I with the day to day running of the clinic, dealing with telephone enquiries and the appointment diary - meeting and greeting clients - giving directions as many clients travel to us, not just from local towns such as Collier Row, Harold Wood, Hornchurch and Upminster but also from areas such as Dagenham, Barking, Redbridge, Chigwell, Epping and Waltham Abbey, Loughton, Woodford, Goodmayes, Chadwell Heath, Seven Kings, Ilford and even further afield going into London or out to Brentwood, Shenfield, Ingatestone, Thurrock, Avely and Southend.
