Skin treatment firm Ever Clinic looking to treble sales after funding injection

An aesthetic clinic in Glasgow is expanding its premises and hiring as it aims to treble turnover within five years after recent six-figure investment.

Ever Clinic was established five years ago, and says turnover to April this year was between £800,000 and £900,000, and expected to double to £1.6 million for the coming year with a target of £4.5m within the next five years, while it is recruiting more medical staff to meet burgeoning demand that surged after the clinic re-opened in its new base after lockdown. It is also aiming to be able to offer free treatment to victims of domestic abuse in Scotland and to people who have self-harmed.

The firm added that it is on track to become the country’s largest facility offering “life-changing” fully ablative laser resurfacing within the next five years. It said it recently invested more than £250,000 meaning it can now treat patients with surgical-grade lasers such as Sciton Joule X and Lumenis Ultrapulse to undertake full ablation, which it stated is seen as the “gold standard” of laser tech, takes away the epidermis, or the top layer of skin, and exposes the dermis, encouraging the formation of rejuvenated skin. The clinic expects to within five years be the biggest facility in Scotland offering fully ablative laser resurfacing.

Ever Clinic was co-founded by managing director Jonathan Toye and medical director Dr Cormac Convery, an honorary senior clinical lecturer at Barts and The Royal London School of Medicine, who performs more than 1,000 specialist procedures a year. Most of its business originally was lip fillers, and it then expanded its offering to include laser resurfacing, acne and medical scar treatment, dermal fillers, xanthelasma, rhinophyma and mole-removal.

Opportunity

Mr Toye, a former GlaxoSmithKline executive, said: “Dr Convery and I established the clinic in 2017 after a long period in which we had trained most of the clinical staff in Scotland in the use of fillers and injectables, and recognised that we could do it so much better ourselves.

“We moved to our current Glasgow city centre premises in April last year. We have treated more than 2,000 patients since then, we are now significantly expanding the size of the clinic to cope with volume and we recently have taken on another doctor. The market is growing by at least 10 per cent a year. Where previously it was driven by older women seeking to reverse or mitigate the ageing process, in recent years its focus has moved towards prevention rather than cure.”

He added that Ever Clinic was bootstrapped, with “very little capital apart from personal resources”, and growth originally depended on word of mouth and referrals. The MD explained that the turning point came “when other clinics started to pass on cases which were too complex for them to undertake” and/or not readily available on the NHS.

“One of our most serious ambitions is to reach a point where we can offer free treatment to victims of domestic abuse in Scotland and to people who have been driven by their personal circumstances to self-harm,” he also stated.
