Who we are
Welcome to Younique Aesthetics
Our Clinical Director Aine Larkin, (RGN, INP, MSc) has been named Aesthetic Practitioner of the Year by Local Women magazine, an accolade which followed Younique’s win at the prestigious 2018 Aesthetic Awards in London for Best Aesthetic Clinic in Ireland.
Aine is the lead member of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses (BACN) in Northern Ireland and a key member of several industry regulatory groups including Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) which has recently been working alongside the government on introducing regulatory legislation for the aesthetics industry. A highly respected Independent Nurse Prescriber, she has been practising in aesthetics full time for the last 15 years.
Having completed her Masters Degree with distinction in Cosmetic Medicine from the University of South Wales, Aine is also qualified in anatomical and complication management, as well as being an NMC registered mentor.
The rapidly expanding Younique Aesthetics is the result of Aine's passion for the aesthetics industry. She continually endeavours to grow the business in terms of safety, experience, education and self -confidence, a passion her staff also share. As one of the first cosmetic medicine practitioners in Northern Ireland, she has capitalised on this and has developed a relationship with local MLAs and also the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority. Aine is currently working alongside them to amend and update legislation for injectables within our industry.
As a certified Merz Innovative Partner and clinical educator, Aine regularly demonstrates her expertise to budding aesthetic practitioners across the UK and Ireland by offering mentorship, shadowing and one to one tutoring. Aine does this by speaking at different events and by hosting events in her very own training academy.
Aine also writes a monthly aesthetics column in Local Woman Magazine, featuring educational articles and information on aesthetic treatments which keeps the members of the public informed and updated and has written for the Aesthetics Journal.
