Dr Ros Debenham MBChB MRCGP
Qualified Aesthetic Practitioner
Dr Ros Debenham is one of Exeter’s leading aesthetic practitioners. After working in general practice for over 22 years Ros moved over to the aesthetics industry in 2008. Since opening Radiance with her daughter in 2013, Ros quickly built up a large client base from Exeter, the Southwest and even from abroad. Her forte is in her assessment that enables her to offer you the best treatments that will give you natural looking results.
Winner of Venus Lifetime achievement for the whole of the UK in 2016
Dr Ros was heavily involved in setting up the Harmony Assessment Program- a new method of facial assessment that is now being used in the top aesthetic clinics in the UK. She is a UK trainer for Galderma, one of the leading dermal filler companies and mentors other clinics around the UK. Bioidentical hormones as a safe alternative to HRT for both women and men is the latest addition to her repertoire.
Women in the UK used to feel guilty about having beauty treatments. Now we know that one of the keys to confidence is through how we feel about our appearance. My clients take pride in their appearance and understand that ‘they wear their face every day’ so give their faces priority. Often I see clients who have lost the confidence they might have had when they were younger. My general practice, life coach, NLP and psychology training is invaluable – Often clients say,” I’ve come for my treatment AND my ‘confidence boost chat!”

After opening Radiance MediSpa with her mum, Katie moved forward from her day-to-day beauty treatments and qualified as a Cosmeceuticals, skin and laser specialist as well as a leading CoolSculpting (fat freezing) therapist.
“I see a wide range of clients for specifically advised treatments from skincare to hair removal. Primarily my clients have difficult skin conditions such as acne, scarring, pigmentation and red veins, therefore, I am very particular in advising the most appropriate treatment or skin care regime to ultimately bring them the best results. I also love seeing the results that CoolSculpting gives – I can remove double chins & literally sculpt bodies” Katie Debenham

The Beauty Team
Jade has been a qualified beauty therapist since the age of 18 and throughout her Radiance career has also been trained in many aesthetic and laser treatments. She is very passionate about skincare and skin health and helping clients with any skin concerns that are knocking their confidence. Jade is trained in Semi-permanent makeup which is also known as micro-pigmentation or cosmetic tattooing. Have a look at the brows, eyeliners and lips of the staff at Radiance to see her work.
This is a procedure whereby minute particles of natural and synthetic iron oxide colour pigments are implanted a little more than 1.5mm below the skin surface, depending on the area being treated, using a hand piece tool that holds sterile needle grouping.
It can last around 18 months to 5 years and will fade out gradually over time and top up treatments will be required approximately every 12-18 months to keep this treatment looking fresh. This is an amazing treatment if you are tired of penciling in your brows daily or want to change the shape of your brow and make them a little fuller and add a bit more colour behind the hairs to achieve that defined brow with minimal effort..
Jade doesn’t just treat the eyebrows, she can also enhance the lashline and lips with all the same benefits.
