We are a boutique aesthetics practitioner based at Battlers Green Farm in Radlett, offering the very best in bespoke, results focused treatments for the skin and body in a friendly and discreet setting. There’s no one size fits all attitude here, every treatment is as individual as each of our clients.

HLA is a personal practice, there is no conveyer belt of aestheticians, you will be treated by Piper from start to finish and beyond. The majority of our clients come to us via word of mouth, something we are hugely proud of and has fulfilled the ethos we were determined to create when opening the studio. We don’t want to be like everyone else. One client may take 30 minutes for a specific treatment, another may take an hour, this is why we don’t take online bookings. When you can walk straight into a high street pharmacy for botox, or make an enquiry to a faceless chain for laser hair removal with zero personal interaction or understanding of the starting point and objective, there is a problem. We don’t do generic, we don’t do factory line. We do personal. We do bespoke. We do results driven treatments, tailored to you.

We offer laser hair removal, fat freezing, body contouring, skin tightening, microneedling, AlumierMD peels, dermaplaning, plasma pen fibroblast and hot waxing.

We hold the highest level of qualifications and we are an NHS approved partner, using only Gold Standard, award winning, FDA and CE approved technology.

About Us:

Piper Mitchell

Director of Aesthetics

I came to the aesthetics industry later in life and feel so fortunate to have found a career I’m so passionate about; people often assume I was a beauty therapist but this is not my background, my qualifications are purely as an aesthetic practitioner. It was after I left a particularly unfriendly and impersonal laser hair removal consultation myself that I felt I could make a difference to the approach and HLA has grown organically from experience. I live in St Albans, work in Radlett and am fortunate to have such fantastic mentors and strong female influencers around me, who all encourage and inspire each other. It’s important to me to champion local businesses, I truly believe that as women we should support each other and that sharing connections and ideas can only help business and each other flourish. Outside of HLA, I am a true crime aficionado and manage to combine my support to the local community with my interest in justice, and am a Magistrate sitting on the St Albans bench.

Elizabeth Paske

Clinical Director

With 35 years of clinical experience, Elizabeth brings both wisdom and warmth to the studio. After completing her Masters in Nursing, Elizabeth managed high profile private hospitals, guiding them through many successful CQC inspections. We feel very lucky to have such a wealth of experience at our finger tips at HLA!
