Sharon has looked after my skin for a number of years, she is a true lady and very professional.

Would recommend Sharon to anyone because you will not be disappointed. The best..

Aine Dooley - Westmeath

"After visiting many doctors and dermatologists and trying medication for my daughters acne, we were referred to Sharon in 2018. Her entire approach and understanding from the get go was fantastic. We visited Longford for 6 months and thanks to the expertise and advice we received, Ciara's severe acne is now manageable"

Breda Cosgrove - Sligo

"I cannot praise Sharon Noonan highly enough for her professionalism, charisma or attention to detail in her work. Saffron Rouge is a very comfortable environment and somewhere that takes the ouch factor out of the not so pleasant treatments. Very privileged to be a client as clients lose that term and become friends! Thank You for everything."
