New Laser Skin & Body Clinic opens up thanks to grant.
A new laser, skin and body clinic is all set to open in Telford with the help of a £10,000 grant from Telford & Wrekin Council.
Dermacore will be opening its doors on Tan Bank, Wellington on 4 August, following Government guidelines which has finally allowed them to open. They will be in a shop unit that has been vacant for around four years
The business launched by Rabia Akhtar and sister Aeshah. Rabia will specialise in advanced non-surgical aesthetic treatments.
The duo want to diversify their services into health, wellness, aesthetics and dermatology sector.
In the near future the plan is to become a training provider, become a known brand attracting wider audiences and to expand into opening new locations including national and international.
“We pride ourselves on being Telford’s first advanced laser, skin and body clinic.
“The regeneration grant from Telford & Wrekin Council helped us with vital start-up capital; without it we wouldn’t be able to open.
“From the outset we had a lot of interest and support from the council, guiding and helping, not just with the grant but in other ways such as advice and information on business start-up courses.”
Cllr Lee Carter, cabinet member for neighbourhood services, said: “At such a difficult time for the high street it is fantastic to see such an innovative and ambitious new enterprise opening and the Council is proud that it has been able to make the opening possible through its Empty Retail Unit grant.
“Start-ups like this bring new life and attract new customers to our high streets and are absolutely key as the borough recovers from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
“The Council’s business support team will continue to support the business during its first year of opening”.
