The International Institute for Anti-Ageing (Iiaa) recently celebrated the toast its UK and Ireland beauty and aesthetics salons, spas and clinics at its annual award ceremony.

They are all very enthusiastic about the products and we use the iiaa’s skin analysis and make-up events as well as our own workshops to engender the same feeling in our clients.”

A special recognition went to Highgate based Face It, which took home a Lifetime Achievement award having won the Environ Salon of the Year award for ten consecutive years.

Other winners included London’s Aesthetic Skin Clinic, who took home the prize for Advanced Nutrition Programme (UK), while the Irish winner was Monica Tolan’s Beauty Clinic in Co. Dublin.
