A hat-trick of nominations for cosmetic nurse

An Edinburgh cosmetic nurse is sitting pretty after scoring finalist spots in three prestigious cosmetic and aesthetic competitions.

Jackie Partridge, who founded the capital’s Dermal Clinic in 2007 with husband Jarrod, has scooped nominations in three of the industry’s annual award ceremonies: the Look Awards, the Diamond Awards and Scotland’s Medical Cosmetic Awards.

A finalist last year for both Cosmetic Clinic of the Year and Best Independent Nurse Prescriber of the Year at the Look Awards, Jackie and her team have again been acknowledged in both categories.

Jackie, who champions responsible practice, has also been shortlisted for Cosmetic Nurse of the Year at The Safety in Beauty Diamond Awards and is a finalist in Scotland’s Medical Cosmetic Awards 2018 for Best Cosmetic Nurse, Best Clinic and Most Influential Practitioner.

To date, Dermal Clinic has scooped more than 20 accolades, highlighting its expertise and reputation as one of the UK’s most highly regarded cosmetic clinics.

Jackie said: ‘It’s amazing to be nominated for these awards – I was thrilled when I saw just how many we are in the running this year.

‘Our team work extremely hard to provide an array of treatments to clients, always adhering to the highest standards of clinical regulations.

‘We are up against some fantastic practitioners so to even be considered is an honour in itself.’

Jackie, who is a founding board member of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses (BACN), recently presented her Lips Through The Ages masterclass to 85 industry professionals at Strathclyde University and is presenting again in London this week.

The educational day, which saw Jackie share her tips and tricks of the trade, focused on demonstrations and live injection techniques in conjunction with Galderma.

Last year, Jackie was handpicked by the pharmaceutical giant to sit on their expert panel of dermatologists and plastic surgeons.

Jackie will continue her work with Galderma with a presentation at the Aesthetics Conference Exhibition (ACE) in London on Friday, 27 April.

She said: ‘The presentation at ACE will follow on from my Glasgow and London masterclasses, focusing on responsible treatments regarding lip injections.

‘Our main focus at Dermal Clinic is ‘look better feel better’ and how we can provide clients with naturally beautiful results.

‘Too long have dermal fillers been associated with oversized lips. In fact, fillers should be used to hydrate and restore.

‘We aim create natural-looking results that allow you to be the freshest version of yourself.’

The multi-award-winning Dermal Clinic is located on Church Hill Place in Morningside.
