Virginia Williams Skincare Studio

Welcome to Virginia Williams Skin care studio, the home of expert facials and hot waxing treatments in South Woodford.

My tranquil home-based studio has been operating for 10 years, making it one of the longest-standing salons in town. I hope that my simple philosophy of offering an unhurried, 1-2-1 service has played a part in making people want to come back for their treatments time and again.

My special areas of expertise are facial therapy, intimate hot waxing and bridal beauty preparation. Anyone looking for a tailored facial will find something to suit in my wide range of specialist treatments. I use Dermalogica, Crystal Clear and Image Skincare products, and can offer targeted treatments from acne management to anti-ageing solutions, such as the powerful Oxygen therapy with Microdermabrasion, or the Lightening Lift peel for hyperpigmentation.

In 2014, I was awarded Dermalogica Expert status, recognising me as one of the highest trained skin care professionals in the country through my postgraduate studies at the International Dermal Institute.

To achieve Dermalogica Expert status, I completed specialist product, treatment and business workshops and sessions offered only to the most skilled and knowledgeable therapists. This advanced knowledge and expertise will be shared with you, the clients, to help you maintain the highest level of skin care.

Clients enjoy visiting the studio annexed to my home, and where the soothing aromas of beauty products await. The ample free on street parking helps to keep their visit stress-free. Being able to offer my clients complete peace and quiet is a real point of pride for me. I very much look forward to continuing to run this haven from the stresses and strains of everyday life for many years to come.

The studio is open five days a week to suit a wide range of lifestyles, including appointments two evenings a week (Tuesday and Thursday) until 8.30pm. You can make your appointment via our fuss-free online booking system or over the telephone.

Always professional, Virginia puts me at ease at every visit. She remembers things about me and we chat like old friends. My treatments are great, relaxing and effective. I look forward to every appointment as a treat.

I have been visiting Virginia Williams Skin Care Studio for at least 10 years and have consistently had an excellent and very high standard of service. The welcome is warm as well as the toasty room where the treatments are conducted. The room is soothing and inviting. My favourites here are massages and facials both of which are fantastic. Basically I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a salon with a little bit more to offer at a very reasonable price. Enjoy!

Virginia Williams is a hidden gem!

Tucked away in a side street, where you would never look unless you were 'in the know', is a haven of serenity that is my favourite relaxation spot. I first visited with a gift voucher as I was 'brought in to the know' by a friend & even as I stepped across the threshold, my senses were treated to the indulgent aroma of essential oils, clearly designed to relax & unwind. And it's these little extras that really make for a fantastic experience; from the heated, warm & cosy 'cocoon' I was enveloped in for my facial, to the 'no strip' wax, that was a revelation in bikini waxing for me. Extra & surprising treats to be enjoyed too like a mini foot rub included with a particular massage or the complimentary hot towels offered, pleasantly, when you'd least expect them! The pretty view through the massage table breathing hole or the random 2 for 1 & monthly package offers I receive. All individually a part of the reason I keep going back what is probably 15 years on now (eek!).

I must also comment on the massages available too. Clearly an experienced masseuse who knows where I need working on & where I want the pressure to be strong but, going easy in more tender areas. I highly recommend the stress busting head, neck & shoulder massage that is second to none! I love a massage & as such I've been to many beauticians over the years, home & abroad. Two stand out in my mind: The London Berkeley Hotel & Virginia Williams of South Woodford, the latter of which is reasonably priced! It's a no-brainer!

Virginia is a lovely person, very nice and sweet but my French bio-sculpture manicure looks horrible. I'm going to take it off as I can't look on my nails.

I recently tried VWskincare for the first time, and went for the new 'Body & Mind Rewind' session, which includes a full body massage and a facial.

The therapist Tracey was friendly and put me right at ease straight away, Just what I needed with my stress levels!

Overall the treatment was wnderful, felt like it lasted a lot longer than 1hour 45 minutes!.

As part of the massage, a hot stone was put on my back, while I had a foot and leg massage. Tracey then moved to my upper back, and really got to the stress knots in my muscles (this was my favourite part of the session).

The Age Smart facial was also fab. I had a good consultation before and afterwards, where the therapist talked through my cleansing routine, noted concerns (I got to take home a copy of this) and also gave me advice and Dermalogica product samples to take home.

I had my face steamed, cleaned, exfoliated, toned and moisturised, and afterwards my complexion genuinely looked miles better than it has in ages.

Would highly recommend, especially if you are feeling stressed!

This salon is tucked away in a lovely quiet street, making it the perfect place to go if you need to really relax in perfect silence! I was welcomed with a smile by the therapist, Tracey, who made me feel right at ease about my treatment to come. It was called the Body & Mind Rewind, which I was desperately in need of. This is a full massage and Dermalogica Age Smart facial in one session.
I had a thorough consultation for each part of the treatment, which meant we were able to discuss specific concerns (which were stress levels for the massage, and treating dry skin patches/ lessening fine lines for the facial).
I really enjoyed the massage, which tackled all the stresses and tensions that have been building in my neck and back. The arms and feet part of the massage were also very relaxing. It felt like it lasted forever!
The facial gave me a lasting glow and skin did seem a lot more vibrant and fresh afterwards. I had a steam and pre-cleanse, a cleanse, exfoliation, toning, moisturising etc. The exfoliation treatment in particular was a revelation to my usual cleansing routine. I got product samples and recommendations. A few spots I had cleared up much more quickly than usual as well. The advice to make changes to my home skin care regime was also very welcome. I'll be going back for sure.

The minute I stepped through the door, I was made to feel welcome, and Virginia ensured that I was comfortable during my entire time with her. The Facial and Massage she gave me were probably the best I had ever experienced, and I was bitterly sad when it was all over - and all for great value for money too!

I would definitely recommend Virginia Williams Skincare Studio to anyone, and I'm looking forward to my next session with her!

I have been visiting this salon regularly for several years now and have never been disappointed. Tracey is a terrific therapist and I always feel rejuvenated after one of her treatments. The salon is in her home and the room always smells divine because of all the aromatherapy oils. There is no pressure to buy products and because of the time she allows between appointments, I always feel relaxed and unrushed, unlike in other salons where appointments are often booked back-to-back. Highly recommended.
