We use a range of high-end laser and light treatments to slow the signs of ageing or transform problem skin or hair…the amazing results speak for themselves and our clients report boosted wellbeing and confidence.
At Abila, we’re proud to have created a calming and relaxing environment at our clinic in Sunderland, with cleanliness and hygiene as our number one priority.
Clients always tell us how much they feel at ease when they visit, and they leave feeling well-loved and cared for. This is how we want you to feel when you come to Abila.
Following your treatments, if you’re happy with the results and feel more comfortable in your own skin, then we have done our job. We measure our success by the happiness of our clients.
From the beginning, Abila has been about helping people. We believe this has been the key to our success and the reason we are rated so highly by our clients – because they know, we truly care.
My Journey to Abila…
My name is Sara Aslam, and I’m the Director and Lead Aesthetician at Abila.
I’m a trained Radiographer and worked in the NHS for over a year following my degree.
I loved my job and helping patients. However, I was always switching from day to night shifts. This messed up my sleeping patterns and left me totally drained. I couldn’t think straight – I didn’t feel safe travelling home or being responsible for patients’ lives.
My manager said there was no option to change my shifts. I realised that I could not continue working like this (and this is why it was called a grave shift!)… I knew it was time for me to do something different. But what?
I still wanted to help people and do good, and I wanted to use my medical expertise and training to help people.
The idea for Abila came to me through my own personal experience. You see, I have been through highs and lows. I’ve suffered with depression due to my weight, stretchmarks, scars and not being able to keep on top of hair removal. This all made me hate the way I looked. (So, I know all about confidence – or lack of it!)
When I looked at permanent hair removal treatments, I found that I simply couldn’t afford anyone who was qualified and using medical graded equipment. They were way out of my price range. So, I was stuck and continued to spiral into depression…and feeling like I wasn’t good enough…
Until, the idea came to me that this was what I had been looking for. This was something I could do. A way to use my medical training for good and help people who are going through what I went through. But I would do it differently, by providing high-end treatments at a reasonable price.
And that’s how Abila came to be – Abila of course, meaning ‘Beautiful’ – because that’s how I want all our clients to feel.
Seeing clients’ reactions and hearing all the lovely things they have to say about our treatments, makes the journey all worthwhile. I feel like I am genuinely making a difference to peoples’ lives – making them feel happier and more confident with themselves.
The Abila Promise…
From the beginning, Abila has been about helping people. I don’t want anyone to have to go through what I experienced and so, we go out of our way to help everyone who comes to us. I believe this has been the key to our success and the reason we are rated so highly by our clients – because they know, we truly care.
That’s why we’re committed to…
Giving a little back...
A beautiful future…
It means the world to us, to see our clients’ transformations and how they glow with happiness. This is why we do it. And why we will continue to develop our treatments and make sure we help as many people as possible – with all kinds of skin conditions.
We’re also looking to expand the clinic and open further treatment rooms to expand the team. We’d like to offer more beauty treatments for nails, makeup and massage. We want to be known as a beauty feel good hub where you can get everything under one roof.
