Safety and wellbeing will be of paramount importance to Caroline HIll as she prepares to relaunch her clinic. Here’s how things will work.
Treating yourself to a beauty treatment has probably seemed like a pipe dream over the last couple of months – but that’s about to change. Barring any late changes to government guidelines, the personal care sector will be reopening their doors next month to welcome clients once again.
Recently rebranded and relaunched, Caroline Hill Clinic offers a discreet professional service for men and women of all ages, to subtly slow the ageing process and enhance natural beauty using a range of non-surgical facial aesthetic treatments.
Caroline is an experienced, skilled and expert injector, with an in-depth knowledge of how the ageing process can affect facial tissue and bone structure – using dermal skin filler to support facial ageing trigger points, lift sagging skin and enhance natural contours and definition in younger clients.
Clinic director Caroline qualified as a registered general nurse in 1988 and has been practising at the forefront of the aesthetics industry since 2004. Since then she has continued to develop her skills and knowledge to ensure she delivers a unique and multidimensional approach to aesthetics; studying Dermatology at postgraduate level; receiving a Postgraduate Certificate in Non-Surgical Aesthetic Medicine and an Advanced BTEC in Laser Skin Health.
During lockdown, Caroline Hill and her team have given their Ecclesall Road South premises a deep clean and introduced new measures to ensure the clinic is a safe environment for both staff and clients.
“Your safety and wellbeing are of paramount importance to us and therefore we have policies and protocols in place to ensure we continue to exercise strict infection control measures to protect you and our staff,” says Caroline.
In line with Public Health England guidelines, clients visiting the clinic from 4 July will be asked to carry out a health questionnaire prior to their appointment and encouraged to attend alone if possible. Appointment times have been lengthened to ensure only one client will be treated in the clinic at a time.
Visitors are asked to use the recently installed hand sanitiser dispenser on entry and taken straight through to the treatment room. All staff will wear PPE in accordance to the latest guidelines and appointments have been lengthened to allow time for rooms to be thoroughly disinfected after each treatment. In addition, review appointments will be offered online and Caroline will continue to post skincare products to clients free of charge.
And they’re not the only changes that have been taking place at Caroline Hill Clinic. As a result of Caroline’s experience and passion, the clinic is Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered ensuring they are meeting the government’s national minimum standards. The clinic is overseen by Clinic Medical Director and Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Mr Dominic Dodd and supported by a team of highly professional administrative staff who safeguard exemplary standards of patient care and safety.
Mr Dodd has a special interest in the minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins. He offers all treatment options including laser ablation (EVLA), Venaseal, foam sclerotherapy as well as surgical options. He first introduced EVLA to Sheffield in 2004 and has trained surgeons from all over the UK and Europe. Contact the clinic for further information about this service.
Caroline and her experienced team are firm believers that you can look and feel great at any age. But at times, nature needs a helping hand to slow down the less desirable effects. They offer a personal and private experience designed to protect your anonymity and put you at ease and ensure you are comfortable throughout the entire treatment journey.

The Sheffield Menopause Clinic
This recent addition to Caroline Hill Clinic is a private nurse-led service for the management and treatment of menopausal symptoms. It is offered on a self-pay basis for women who wish to receive information, advice and treatment of menopausal symptoms as an alternative to the NHS provision.
“We are dedicated to ensuring women receive up to date, accurate and unbiased evidence-based care,” explains Caroline. “We recognise that unfortunately many women receive conflicting and inaccurate information – especially in the media.
“I have a special interest in menopause care, having recognised that many women are unable to access the information and treatment they require. We can diagnose and manage early menopause and help women in the transition phase (perimenopause).”
Caroline has worked in many areas of women’s health during her 30-year nursing career, including gynaecology, midwifery and sexual health.
The menopause is a natural transition for a woman as she ages. However, as we are now living longer the effects of oestrogen depletion on the body can be profound and lead to significant health issues, such as heart disease and osteoporosis. Symptoms such as hot flushes, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, urinary incontinence and vaginal dryness can be debilitating.
“Our aim at The Sheffield Menopause Clinic is to provide you with all the latest information so that you can make an informed decision about your treatment to optimise your health and wellbeing through the menopause and beyond,” adds Caroline.
“We can prescribe HRT for you and inform your GP with the outcome of your assessment and treatment choice. We want to dispel the myths around menopause and HRT, so that you can make an informed decision about your health.”
Here is what some of her happy clients had to say:
“I consulted Caroline when I discovered I was menopausal, after first going down the GP route and realising that the ‘one size fits all’ approach didn’t suit me. Caroline made me feel like an individual. Her kindness, patience and advice has helped me get my life back and I can’t praise her highly enough.”
“Thank you Caroline for a really positive and informative experience. I feel so much better and that’s before I start my HRT!”

Caroline Hill Clinic is also planning to expand its women’s health services to include: counselling, pelvic floor physiotherapy, nutrition and wellbeing and also the management of chronic migraine. Coming soon will be new websites for both the aesthetic and menopause clinics, complete with new branding.
