Meet Lindsey Watson, a former NHS nurse who took the leap to pursue a career in aesthetics at the age of 52. Three years later, she is now the proud owner of Elle Jay Aesthetics in Stourport-on-Severn, employing a team of four amazing individuals who contribute to the clinic’s thriving success.
Following a visit to 3D Aesthetics’ HQ in early 2023, Watson decided to introduce 3D Aesthetics into her business to add to her existing treatment offering, and within an impressive 60 days, she was able to pay off her initial investment with 3D Aesthetics.
While working in private hospitals, Watson gained insight into the aesthetics sector and watched some of her colleagues enter this industry. As the lockdown eased, she began her own journey. Watson went on to complete courses designed for medical professionals and rented a room in a clinic while still working for the NHS.
She gradually built her presence through open days and social media, eventually opening her very own clinic as she got busier and busier and left her full-time job as an advanced nurse practitioner.
While researching new clinic equipment, Watson came across companies and devices that were, in her words, “way too expensive” to offer affordable treatments to her clients. She says: “Some of the machines were £100,000 each, with costly consumables as well. As a result, the price point for the treatments was also very high. They also didn’t offer the scope of treatments that machines such as 3D HydrO₂ facial or 3D lipo-ultimatepro offer.”
After Watson visited the 3D Aesthetics head office in January and experienced the machines firsthand, she decided to invest in 3D lipo-ultimatepro and 3D HydrO₂ facial, as well as Dermalux Flex MD.
The introduction of 3D Aesthetics machines significantly impacted Watson’s clinic. The positive feedback from her clients and the remarkable results achieved through the treatments led to a surge in demand. Clients experienced incredible transformations, including substantial inch loss and boosted self-confidence.
Watson says: “We have a lot of ladies with ‘mummy tummy’ and ‘menopause belly’. The 3D lipo-ultimatepro is fantastic for this. We tend to do a one-off treatment with cryolipolysis, followed by at least four sessions of a combination of cavitation, radiofrequency and shockwave. One lady lost 20cm from her waist in 12 weeks after one cryo and four combination treatments. Another lady said she’s gone out to buy a bikini she hadn’t bought for years, giving her so much confidence! So, it’s nice to see how much of a positive difference it makes.”
Commenting on her return on investment, Watson says: “I looked at my figures, and since I bought the machines five months ago, my turnover has increased by £62k. I can now pay myself more than I was getting in the NHS, pay other people a decent wage, and still reinvest in the business.”
Asked if she has any advice for anyone looking to invest with 3D Aesthetics, Watson says: “Don’t hesitate! The machines do exactly what you need them to do, are a good price, and treatments sell very well. The clients love the results, and we just keep growing week on week, month on month.
She adds: “This week alone, we’re doing 32 body-sculpting treatments with 3D lipo-ultimatepro, six 3D HydrO₂ facials, four radiofrequency treatments using the 3D HydrO₂ facial device, as well as six 3D Powersculpt treatments.”
Watson’s partnership with 3D Aesthetics extends beyond the machines themselves. She’s happy with the after-sales support and guidance she’s received, including training, engineering support and marketing.
She’s also benefitted from marketing expert Kris Trinity’s expertise as he guided her through the launch of the devices. These resources enhanced Watson’s marketing strategies and ensured the success of her promotions and machine launches.
She says: “The company has family values and is very supportive of its clients. They want you to succeed and do everything they can to help you with this, including the free marketing session with Kris Trinity.”
From significant inch loss to increased self-care and confidence, Watson’s clients have experienced transformative results that have positively impacted their mental wellbeing.
Lindsey Watson’s success story showcases the power of 3D Aesthetics in propelling the growth of her clinic.

The exceptional results and positive word-of-mouth referrals have solidified her clinic’s reputation as a go-to destination for aesthetic services. With the ongoing support of 3D Aesthetics, Watson looks forward to expanding her offerings and continuing to impact her clients.
