We’re all taking more care of our appearance than ever before, which is why the beauty sector is on the rise.  Taking advantage of this trend is CapitalSpace Kings Hill customer Illuminate Skin Clinic, which is looking to move to bigger business accommodation for the second time in three years.

Starting off as a full-time doctor for the NHS, Sophie Shotter created Illuminate Skin Clinics in 2014: ‘We are a very bespoke and expert clinic. You will find many doctors, dentists, nurses and even beauty therapists who dabble in a 'bit of Botox'. We do this all day, every day, and offer a comprehensive service, focused around making our customers feel great.’

Flexible start-up solutions

In July of 2014 Sophie decided to move into her own suite at CapitalSpace’s Churchill Square: ‘I knew I wanted to set the business up in Kings Hill. I was a brand-new business at this point – I didn't know how things would go, and I didn't know how my business requirements might change, so flexibility was extremely important to me, and was the main draw of Churchill Square.  As a customer-facing business plenty of parking was also an attractive feature.’

Since joining CapitalSpace, Sophie has taken advantage of our flexible business accommodation terms, as well as the other support on hand: ‘Being a CapitalSpace customer has been a very positive experience. The ease with which we could scale up when we needed to was fantastic – I told the centre management team I needed more space, was shown an available suite, and moved into it a week later. The support of the centre management team has been fantastic; knowing there is a wise pair of ears should we ever have questions, being able to recommend other businesses if we need a particular service, and simply signing for parcels if we are not around has been invaluable.’

Future plans

Illuminate Skin Clinics is striving for success and is even planning on increasing their space again this

 year: ‘The shape of the business will change quite significantly over the next five years. We will need bigger premises within the coming year, and are already in the early stages of planning for this with the Churchill Square centre management team. We are also working on establishing a training company, for which the meeting rooms will come in very useful.  Within five years we may well be looking at locations in other towns, and if CapitalSpace have centres there, then who knows...!’

With another eight centres across the South East – all with great transport links and thriving local economies – we’d be delighted to advise Sophie and her team on potential locations for their next clinic.
