About us – Health Counts…
Health Counts opened in 1988 in Ipswich’s Buttermarket and moved to Arcade St in 1990. We bought our premises in 1993 and now own them outright. That means we’re not going anywhere, and after nearly 30 years in the business, we really know what we’re doing. The clinic has 3 directors, with Sarah Carless, who is the Managing Director, having run the clinic since 1990. She also has a B Tech in Lasers, Light and Associated Aesthetic Therapies. Another is Dr Sandy De’Ath, our resident Medical Director, who has been with the clinic since 2002.
Previously an NHS Anaesthetist at Colchester General Hospital, Sandy is the clinic’s medical expert in laser therapy as well as being trained in using Botox and Dermal Fillers. Whilst she is now retired from medical practice, she continues with her laser work including the removal of tattoos, pigmented lesions, skin tags and Port Wine Stains. Dr Sandy’s expertise, knowledge and long experience make her an invaluable member of our team.
Alongside Sandy is Nurse Karen Hamberg. Karen is a Registered General Nurse, a Nurse Independent Prescriber and a leading advanced aesthetic practitioner who is expert in the use of Botox and Dermal Fillers previously in London’s renowned Harley Street. Cindy Kerry is our Clinic Manager, formerly a patient at the clinic who came to work with us in 2003. Our other key staff have either nursing, healthcare professional or beauty therapy qualifications.
We believe very much in providing the absolute best in professional quality treatments using the optimum in clinical lasers and equipment, along with top notch staff. We are affiliated with the Laserase group of clinics which started in 1990. Laserase was first clinic group to offer Laser Tattoo and Hair Removal throughout the UK and carries a huge wealth of experience and knowledge within itself. This means Health Counts can tap into their extensive experience when complicated cases present themselves. It also means we can use their experience and advice when shopping for the MOST effective lasers.

WHY HEALTH COUNTS ARE EXPERTS IN TREATING THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY
As far back as 1995, as the first specialist skin laser clinic in East Anglia, Health Counts had been lasering masculine themed/located tattoos off patients who were changing gender, and in 2004 when the clinic (again one of the first) diversified into laser hair removal we were the first on the list for our LGBGTQ+ people. We’ve had many hundreds of really happy clients from the community since, so much so that in 2016 we were approached by NHS east of England to carry out all their facial & pre-surgical laser hair removal for their patients. We KNOW what you have to go through & our CQC, laser expertise & medical credentials put us at the top of our field in this service. We can even put you in touch with people who’ve been through this for extra support & advice. Here are two reviews from some of our happy customers:
“ It is perfect. All staff are friendly and explain everything in detail. I felt very safe and happy.”

“Dark haired girl problems. If you know what I mean, please keep reading….
For those who have looked in the mirror and wished the hair on her top lip was gone. For the waxers and the pluckers, the bleachers and the foundation-cakers there is a solution. A simple life change that, if you think you need it, almost guarantees happiness. And that’s Health Counts. It worked for me! I used to have a hairy lip, and worse a hairy chin. Thinking about it now takes me back to days lacking confidence, days of hoping that it wouldn’t show through my makeup or grow back too fast after whatever I’d done at home failed to rectify the problem, yet again. Then I found out about a laser clinic just down the road, with a promise of a permanent fix at a reasonable price. I thought it sounded too good to be true, I really did, but now I thank myself that I went there anyway.
Because that led to my first meeting with the Alexandrite laser – the bad boy hair destroyer on a mission to create smooth skin. It works. Honestly, it does exactly what it is supposed to!! I can’t really say anything more meaningful than the laser does get rid of hair. And mine isn’t growing back either!!!
So with all of that said, I’ve not yet mentioned the best thing about Health Counts, and that’s the people working there. Sarah and her team, for me, go beyond being professional to offer what I’d say is a truly personal experience. I’ve met quite a few of the staff, and have been treated by Janey, and have always been truly impressed by their friendliness; and how they listen and advise and offer a really tailored service. I do feel that my treatments are exclusively for me, if that makes sense!! I get the impression that someone else, maybe you if you’re reading this and are interested, may have slightly different treatments and recommendations – but I do think it would be right for them (or you). Plus everything is done with a smile, a kind word and a cup of tea so I don’t think you can go wrong!!!
For me having facial hair was horrible; I hated it and I wanted it gone. Getting rid of it was an important stage of my personal journey, and to me it was something essential. In terms of the actual money cost, I think Health Counts prices are reasonable. But then I thought about how that cost can be broken down. For me, now I have been treated, each day is that little bit better than the days before. It really is something that I gain from, in some ways, 24/7; 365 days a year. Which means the value to me is so much more than I’ve paid for the treatments. So much more.
Honestly, this may be of no interest to you. But if something I’ve said is meaningful for you, I really would say give laser a try. And there’s nowhere better round here!!!”
