About us

Good skin should be easy.

We’re on a mission to make skin health easier. We believe a connected approach delivers better results for your skin goals. And that simple is best because we know what it’s like when things get complicated. It’s what drove our founder, Helen Wyre, to create No. 23 Skin.

Overwhelmed with options when looking to treat her acne and scarring at the same time, Helen bounced between clinics with no continuity of care. Talking to others, she realised her experience wasn’t unusual. So she set out to change it.

She partnered with leading doctor, Cherry Armstrong, who shared her conviction that the skin is one organ, and all its needs should easily be addressed in one place. Together with a team of dermatologists and aestheticians with experience spanning Harley Street, the NHS, private healthcare, and boutique clinics, they launched No. 23 Skin.

Working collaboratively so no one gets lost in ‘the system’ and using only clinically approved treatments which we know work, we help you find the confidence that comes with great skin – for good.

Shannon Mackey

Skin Expert

Shannon’s reviews speak for themselves…

“I have been going to Shannon for the last year and a half. I suffer from acne and had been going to another clinic for facials and getting no further forward. My skin has showed a marked improvement after I started visiting Shannon every 4-6 weeks and I even have the confidence to go out without putting any make up on my skin (I never thought this would ever happen). I would highly recommend!!”.

Shannon’s passion lies in making you feel great – rested, relaxed, and importantly glowing with great skin.

Experienced in advanced facial treatments including peels, lasers and microneedling, Shannon knows how to get amazing results. And working alongside our dermatology doctors she know what will work specifically with your skin.

Helen Wyre

Founder.

Overwhelmed with options when looking to treat her acne, moles, and fine lines at the same time, Helen bounced between clinics with no continuity of care and where she never quite felt comfortable. Talking to others, she realised her experience wasn’t unusual. So she set out to change it and No. 23 Skin was born.

Her focus is on building a clinic where busy mums, professionals, and those in mid-life can get great results for the health of their skin, whilst feeling relaxed and well looked after.

“To me, our skin has a very direct impact on our mood and the way we feel – regardless of whether our need is deemed “medical” or “cosmetic”. So, whether a client has skin cancer, breakouts, or wrinkles that need attention, we want everyone to feel that sense of peace and confidence that comes with great skin”. – Helen.

What a lovely find No.23 Skin is, this was my first facial post lockdown and I picked the perfect place. It is in beautiful location just off High St Ken and whilst being luxurious it was also welcoming and warm. I selected the anti-aging facial and Cecilia tailored it especially to my skin concerns. She had had such a great touch and I was relaxed from the first minute. Facial included a fabulous massage and a LED light treatment (this is a must) and after 75 mins I left with glowing skin! It’s been over two weeks and my skin still looks fresh and dewy.Next appointment is with Dr Armstrong for my wrinkle treatment. Will then be Christmas party ready!read more

The team at No.23 Skin are really helpful, warm and knowledgeable. I went in for a pregnancy facial with Cecilia and she helped me with some very annoying milia that have been troubling me around my eyes for ages and nobody else would help with.I was also able to have a pregnancy safe peel which has left me with smoother skin with a more even tone. Would really recommend!read more
