Health Counts opened in 1988 in Ipswich’s Buttermarket and moved to Arcade St in 1990. We bought our premises in 1993 and now own them outright. That means we’re not going anywhere, and after nearly 30 years in the business, we really know what we’re doing. The clinic has 3 directors, one of whom is Dr Sandy De’Ath, our resident Medical Director, who has been with the clinic since 2002.

Previously an NHS Anaesthetist at Colchester General Hospital, Sandy is the clinic’s medical expert in laser therapy as well as being trained in using Wrinkle Smoothing Injections and Dermal Fillers. Whilst she is now retired from medical practice, she continues with her laser work including the removal of tattoos, pigmented lesions, skin tags and Port Wine Stains. Dr Sandy’s expertise, knowledge and long experience make her an invaluable member of our team. Alongside Sandy is Nurse Karen Hamberg.  Karen  is a Registered General Nurse, a Nurse Independent Prescriber and a leading advanced aesthetic practitioner who is expert in the use of Wrinkle Smoothing Injections and Dermal Fillers previously in London’s reknowned Harley Street. Janey Barlow is our Clinic Manager, formerly a physiotherapist and Suzanne Green is the Assistant Manager and formerly a Registered General Nurse.  Cindy Kerry and Renee Hayward both came to the clinic as patients originally, and then, given their backgrounds in beauty therapy, subsequently came to work for us as Laser Therapists.

Sarah Carless is the Managing Director, having run the clinic since 1990.  She also has a B Tech in Lasers, Light and Associated Aesthetic Therapies.

We believe very much in providing the absolute best in professional quality treatments using the optimum in clinical lasers and equipment, along with top notch staff. We are affiliated with the Laserase group of clinics which started in 1990. Laserase was first clinic group to offer Laser Tattoo and Hair Removal throughout the UK and carries a huge wealth of experience and knowledge within itself. This means Health Counts can tap into their extensive experience when complicated cases present themselves. It also means we can use their experience and advice when shopping for the MOST effective lasers.
