Our specialists are looking forward

A journey under professional guidance
to your most radiant self

Deciding on cosmetic treatment is not something done on a whim. It is a journey. First you think about your destination, where you want to be, then you see if it is financially possible. After extensive research you choose who can best guide you on your trip and start the preparations. What are you taking with you, how long are you going, who are you going with and what are you going to do there? Essential Aesthetics is happy to help you choose your destination. Removing fat, altering body lines, tightening skin or giving your skin a boost, at we can do it all. Our clinic goes further than that; we are happy to give you tips and advice to keep those ‘happy vacation vibes’ alive for longer!

At least as important as your journey to harmony between body and mind, are your companions. There are more aspects that influence this harmony, such as our DNA and our lifestyle. As one of the first clinics in the Netherlands, we also focus on preventive care. A healthier life creates a more radiant appearance and a delay in the visible signs of aging.
