Collagenics, the UK`s leading specialist in facial cosmetic treatments, is celebrating its first signing.
The company, which launched its franchise operation this summer, has just signed over its first exclusive territory to franchisee Jackie Renfrey.
Collagenics clinics will soon be open across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire offering non-surgical procedures which help the likes of Madonna, Lulu and Patsy Kensit keep their youthful image.
The company already runs 160 across the country for the likes of national salon group Saks and Re Aqua clinics using expertise it has built up over the last four-and-a-half years.
A successful pilot of the franchise operation is also being run in North Lincolnshire by Jim McGrath, who has been running Collagenics clinics all over the country since the company was founded.
Due to a massive increase in demand for Collagenics treatments, the company recently launched its search for franchisees to run 27 exclusive territories there are now 25 left.
Jackie, an ex- customer service/project manager from Mapperley in Nottingham, already runs a successful business in the beauty industry, has snapped up one territory and is already planning to take on a second in the near future.
As a Collagenics franchisee, Jackie will be recruiting medical practitioners, organising their training, identifying clinic sites, liaising between practitioners and clinics, co-ordinating marketing and overseeing the day-to day running of the business.
Each clinic will offer Botox-style treatments including one of the latest to hit the market, Dysport, Lip Enhancement, Facial Contouring, Facial Peels and Sclerotherapy to correct unsightly veins.
“Botox-style treatments, collagen and facial peels are booming business,” said Jackie, who is based in Nottinghamshire. “Literally thousands of people want to hold back time without having to go under the surgeon`s knife.
“People used to have to travel to London for these treatments but now I can offer it on their doorsteps. Collagenics is possibly controversial, but it is undoubtedly sexy and in great demand.”
All Jackie`s clinics will be operated by specifically trained medical practitioners with the full backing of Collagenics protocols, measurable standards, registered aesthetic trainers and full business support.
“We have a countrywide register of qualified medical practitioners who perform both the consultations and treatments and outlets where the clinics will take place but we are looking for more,” said Jackie.
“The potential market is huge,” said Collagenics Managing Director Stephanie McGrath. “We want people with good business acumen, marketing ability and a genuine interest in the aesthetics field and Jackie fits the bill perfectly.
“We believe Collagenics has one of the highest standards within the industry and the stringent codes of conduct we enforce throughout our network will set the standards to which others can aspire,” said Stephanie.
There are an estimated 12m suitable clients between 35 and 60 and 85% will return for repeat treatments two to three times a year.
