When Sue Carroll's teenage son started to suffer from acne - instead of making a trip to Boots, Carroll founded a new business. Carroll saw a gap in the market for a place sensitive issues for all ages could be treated, but also where the coolest brands could be found and workshops covering all the latest trends and styles could be conducted! Realising there wasn't a salon or medispa already available where her teenagers could go and learn to look after their skin, Carroll created one herself. The end result is Young LDN in Notting Hill.
What does Young LDN offer that wasn’t already available on the market?
Young LDN was designed to offer a space and a treatment menu that appeals to all ages and not just to the anti-ageing market. Gen Z and Millennials needed a place that could meet their needs. The physical design, therefore, is young and trendy, fun and not at all intimidating. The treatment rooms are not clinical and are designed to remove any fear of a treatment. They are also designed to be gender neutral - we want everyone to feel at home.
The menu is designed to appeal to everyone from 12 and up, as one of our treatments is the educational facial. So many skin issues can be helped if a young person just knows how to clean their skin.
Our Peel Bar is also a different concept than most, as it is aimed at a price- and time-sensitive market. All ages love it but particularly Millennials. The Peel Bar offers a good cleanse and a light peel or enzyme determined by the skin type. The relaxation in the treatment comes from the use of Gua Sha stones or Cryotherapy and it finishes with an LED light treatment if desired. It is hugely popular as it offers so much at a really good price.
Young LDN is also a space that offers beauty treatments as opposed to aesthetic treatments - it is a one-stop-shop. We do nails, eyebrows, eyelashes, makeup - anything that you can think of. We are like a large department store in a little space - everything can happen under one roof with no need to travel.
