For years it has been a high street staple for furniture, kitchenware and fashion.
But John Lewis is now offering a very different service at his UK store, as it rolls out a Botox program for customers who want to reverse the years during their shop.
John Lewis & Partners has teamed up with the Cavendish Clinic to provide the service to people aged over 25, along with other aesthetic treatments such as facials and laser hair removal.
It is available at stores in Edinburgh, Milton Keynes, Southampton, Kingston and Cambridge. Further clinics will be opened this year.
Jason Wilary-Attew, head of beauty at John Lewis, said: “We know there’s increasing awareness and demand among consumers for advanced beauty treatments and after careful consideration, we were keen to partner with a trusted medical clinic brand which would deliver this service.
Beauty tech boom
“In the last two years we’ve seen an at-home beauty tech boom and launched our first ever beauty tech department with LED light masks and facial toning devices.
“Our collaboration with the Cavendish Clinic is an acceleration of these services, where customers can visit a clinic in selected John Lewis stores to experience Cavendish bespoke skincare plans and consultations.”
The Cavendish Clinic has more than a decade’s worth of expertise in medical aesthetics. Customers who want to have Botox must have a consultation first, and the procedure will be carried out by specialist aesthetic doctors.
Dr Matt James, co-founder of the clinic, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with John Lewis on this exciting journey. We are fully aligned on our beliefs and values about providing the highest-quality treatments in an ethical, medically-led environment and we look forward to helping consumers discover more about advanced skin, beauty and wellbeing treatments and decide what is right for them.”
Superdrug, the pharmaceutical giant, launched a Botox and fillers service at its flagship store on the Strand in 2018. It was the first major pharmacy chain to offer the treatment.
Botox is widely available at high street clinics in the UK.
