Ashton Collins

Ashton Collins, Director, Save Face, recognised that the non-surgical cosmetic treatment market is largely unregulated and unaccountable and can be a minefield for consumers seeking to find safe treatments. She also recognised that the industry featured a large number of unskilled practitioners delivering a range of services of varying quality and competence. Working with partner Brett Collins to establish Save Face satisfied her commitment to bring about changes in the industry by creating a source of good quality, reliable and truthful information alongside a database of professional, qualified practitioners.
