Zoe Gore – Founder & Owner
AL5 Aesthetics & Training is owned by Zoe Gore, an NVQ 3 and NVQ 4 level trained beauty therapist. Zoe has had an exciting beauty career to date, starting out where she travelled the world on private jets offering luxury, tailored on-flight treatments to her clientele. In 2015 she decided to make roots in the UK and open her first clinic “The Beauty Room AL5”, an intimate Beauty and Aesthetics clinic offering a variety of face and body rejuvenation treatments. The business has grown quickly over the years and to accommodate her every growing team and continuous investment in high-tech equipment, Zoe opened “The AL5 Aesthetics & Training Medispa” in September 2019. Zoe’s vision has always been to offer high-end, quality treatments and training at affordable prices, and in a non-clinical environment. Customers say they feel transported to an oasis of calm at The Al5, which is exactly what we wanted to achieve.
