About 15 years ago, I was completing a treatment on none other than the late American comedian Joan Rivers at a spa in Mayfair, London, and she was as friendly and larger-than-life as you’d imagine. She asked me what I ultimately wanted to do with my life, and I told her that I loved beauty, and wanted to open my own spa. She gave me a knowing look, and just over a decade later, I did.
I love this memory, but let’s rewind: my passion for beauty began professionally 17 years ago, when I became a student at the Mary Reid International Spa Academy in Edinburgh, Scotland. I qualified as a beauty therapist, gaining a great platform of knowledge, skills and customer-service savvy. Upon graduation, I was lucky to start at the Spa within London Hilton on Park Lane, where for four years, I provided top-of-the-line treatments to international clientele and notable celebrities.
A few years later, I moved from London to Sevenoaks, Kent, to settle down with my family, and worked at a local spa. But shortly after, I finally decided that this would be the place to create my very own space, Nailya’s Beauty Room. And while for the past few years, I’ve loved the intimacy, reputation and level of service that was developed, I decided it was time to take the spa to the next level, with a stronger focus on results-driven treatments. DeVita Beauty & Aesthetics proudly opened in 2019. Still seeing it as more of a ‘beauty room’ where women and men can come to elevate many aspects of their beauty, care and grooming, the studio ambience is cosy and serene, yet equipped with cutting-edge skincare and carefully selected products. Led with a focus on beautiful skin, at DeVita, I provide a wide range of treatments which you can see here, and specialise in bespoke facials, body treatments, LVL Lashes, Microblading (semi–permanent eyebrow enhancement) and have recently introduced non-surgical aesthetic procedures such as Microneedling, Mesotherapy and the Fibroblast Plasma Lift.
I pride myself on being an honest, friendly and professional therapist, helping clients achieve results they are thrilled with. It may be a cliché to say, but it’s true: I love making others feel beautiful and empowered through beauty, and helping them to put their best face forward.
Our name DeVita was derived through a combination of Derma which means ‘Skin’ in Latin and Vita which means ‘Life’, because we believe in the significant beauty power of healthy, glowing skin. Our bespoke Facial Treatments will pamper you and help smooth texture, reduce wrinkles, scarring or uneven tone, while our body treatments include cellulite reduction which helps to tighten the skin and decrease a dimpled appearance.
We use trusted professional Luxury Beauty products from heritage beauty houses Germaine de Capuccini, and Guinot, who have epitomised the greatest traditions of French skincare. We also never forget about the finishing touches either, such as LVL Lashes and Microblading (semi–permanent eyebrow enhancement).
Founded by celebrated beauty therapist Nailya Cook in 2019, DeVita Beauty & Aesthetics is Kent’s newest beauty hub.
