Young LDN is the refreshing destination for beauty and aesthetics treatments in the heart of Notting Hill’s Westbourne Grove. This is by far the trendiest beauty studio in London, providing an all-round selection of luxury skincare treatments, aesthetics and express beauty services. Young LDN’s founder and CEO, Sue Carroll, wanted to create a relaxed place for millennials and young adults to receive treatments for their sensitive skin needs, which has become popular with young teens and adults alike, including Saide Frost and her children. Young LDN is split across two floors and offers the options to have treatments with the amazing therapists in the Lab, or enjoy one of the more express beauty treatments in the Lounge upstairs. One thing guaranteed is that no matter the treatment, you will leave looking fresher and revived.
At the Lounge, you can enjoy a deluxe manicure or pedicure, with an indulgent mask, or bespoke scrub and massage, all whilst watching Netflix. The vibe upstairs is relaxed, with attentive therapists that are ready to meet all your beauty needs.
The Lab is downstairs and offers private treatment rooms for facials, body massages, and skin consultations with one of the studio’s aestheticians or guest Doctors.
There is a vast list of treatment options that promise, at the minimum, to rid your skin from impurities, blackheads and congestion. The treatments include the Aquapure Hydra Facial, the Spectra Carbon Peel, also known as the “Hollywood Peel”, and others such as “The 40”, a lunchtime worthy facial in just 40 minutes.
All Young LDN aestheticians are happy to review your skin and advice on the best treatment for your skin’s needs, as well as recommend products that could help improve any issues, from a long list of affordable and professional skincare brands.
I tried the Aquapure Hyrda Facial and had the lovely Bianka for the treatment, which lasted about one hour and we were based in one of the Lab treatment rooms for privacy and ultimate relaxation.
The Aquapure Hydra Facial is a non-invasive, multi-step treatment that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, glowing skin with no discomfort or downtime.
Bianka explained that the beauty of the Aquapure system is that the treatment can be tailored to treat a diverse range of patient needs, using different modalities for each desired function. She also explained that treatment is designed for patients of all skin types and tones; even individuals with sensitive skin. Bianka treated my skin with three of the modalities available: Peel+ to exfoliate the skin, Rejuve+ to smoothen the skin, finalised with Cooling/Heating to heal and tone the skin.
After the hour, my skin was visibly brighter, clearer and tighter after the treatment, and continued to feel supple and radiant for at least 2-3 days after. and with continued visits, we can only imagine the long-term effect it would have on our congested skin.
