Facial Aesthetic Consultancy (FAC) is primarily based in Swansea. We currently visit and work from clinics and salons throughout South & West Wales. FAC is owned and run by qualified nurse and Aesthetic Practitioner Karen Firkins (Bn Hons, Rgn) who has nursing experience in the fields of general and plastic surgery.  Karen is registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), is a member of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), a member of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and is fully insured for her practice.


Having undergone training in many different procedures relevant for her business Karen continues to add to her wealth of knowledge and skills.  She gained her certificate for dermal filler administration with Dr Steven Kaldor and her certificate for the administration of botox was gained with Dr Mark Harrison of Harley Street, London.  Karen has also completed extensive training in the assessment, prescribing and application of skin resurfacers, peels and many other skin treatments with Dermapure Ltd using the extremely effective Dermaquest Skin Therapy products from America and the relevant training required for the use of individual machines.

Who are Facial Aesthetic Consultancy?

Karen is committed to providing her clients with effective professional products and treatments together with ongoing care and follow-up consultations.  This is why she uses the Dermaquest Skin Therapy products as they provide her with superior quality, high-performance ingredients that are formulated and manufactured by the President and Lead Chemist Sam Dhatt together with his team of exceptional on-site chemists in their state-of-the-art facility in Haywood, California.  The realization that maximum results depend on the layering of individual products specially designed to perform a particular function came from Sam’s 20 year career and ingredient experience manufacturing products for over 700 skincare companies.


The Dermaquest Skin Therapy products provide Karen with the ability to treat many skin types/conditions such acne, scarring, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, oily, dry, combination and aging.  This is achieved with careful analysis of each individual’s skin together with specific client protocols incorporating preparation, professional treatments and home care.  To compliment this range Karen also uses and retails Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics supplied as with Dermaquest by Dermapure Ltd.  The Youngblood range again caters for all skin types/conditions providing clients with confidence and a flawless finish.


In addition to this Karen also offers her clients anti-wrinkle injections (Botox) and dermal fillers such as Restylane and Hydrofil Softline to eliminate/soften lines, wrinkles and folds that begin to appear due to the natural aging process, environmental effects and lifestyle.  Karen also uses an array of machines to treat problems such as stretch marks, fat deposits, cellulite, thread veins and unwanted hair to mention just a few.
