“Our partnership makes perfect sense”

SO Magazine meets talented therapists Maryna Cole and Eva Whittle to discover why they have joined forces to offer more people in Tunbridge Wells the innovative Vivace treatment, which was first pioneered by Maryna in this part of the UK…


Maryna Cole has been in the beauty and aesthetics industry for over 20 years and last year opened her first specialist skincare clinic, Retreat Aesthetics, in Tunbridge Wells at One Warwick Park Hotel, offering the ground-breaking Vivace facial.

On launching it Maryna told us she is committed to offering her clients the most exclusive and results-driven cosmeceutical treatments available on the market courtesy of her partnership with the Vivace brand and expert training.

“A lot of my clients don’t want to undergo anything invasive or a treatment that has a huge amount of downtime but they still want to see impressive results and so working with Vivace gives them this,” explains Maryna, who is also now operating out of a clinic in Harley Street.

“My treatments are ideal for those people who are afraid of needles – or who don’t want injectables.”

Now Maryna has teamed up with the HiTech Aesthetics clinic, which is run by Eva Whittle and opened last year on Camden Road, to offer her ground-breaking innovative Vivace facials there too.

Here the pair tell SO Magazine why they decided to join forces in order to offer Maryna’s popular and highly beneficial treatments at this specialist space which also offers laser hair removal courtesy of the revolutionary Soprano Ice machine, along with micro needling, fillers, teeth whitening and massage treatments…


Let’s start by you telling us about the special partnership between Retreat Aesthetics and HiTetch Aesthetics. What does it involve?

Our partnership makes perfect sense, in fact we really don’t know why we didn’t think of it earlier! The use of high-tech equipment in the regenerative aesthetics industry is coming on in leaps and bounds. As a result, we have invested in high-end, effective devices that can deliver fast and fantastic results to our patients with minimal down time. In fact, with some of our treatments there is no down time at all.


Why did you decide to join forces?

By introducing Maryna’s aesthetic skills and award-winning micro needling device to the HiTech Aesthetic team we now have a unique clinic that can offer patients everything they need all under one roof.


When did the partnership begin and how is it going so far?

We launched the partnership earlier this year and we have seen great results so far. The patients leave with so much more confidence. Seeing them leave so happy makes it such a rewarding job!


What are the key benefits of you collaborating like this?

We feel the biggest benefit is the increase in communication. The knowledge sharing between us is endless and this is all passed onto the patients to give them the best outcome. Our treatments are proving to be very popular and our main aim is to educate our clients so that they can understand how ground-breaking these procedures are and can see the benefits.


Can you tell us a little bit about what you do at Retreat Aesthetics Maryna?

I offer the latest innovative and science-driven regenerative treatments by bringing the VIVACE facial experience to clients. If you follow Kim Kardashian on social media you probably saw her take one of her sisters for a ‘Beauty Day’. And she was actually using the same serum that I do which is Exosomes.


What do your skin treatments achieve and why are you so passionate about them?

I am a big fan of efficacy but an even bigger fan of safety. I make sure I am in the place I want to be in when it comes to aesthetic anti-aging procedures for the face, body or solutions to different hair and scalp problems. In my own practice I accelerate skin regeneration with dual wave Radiofrequency and Exosomes. With our premium skincare solution we are not only chronologically slowing down the aging process but biologically reversing it courtesy of inflammatory, proliferative and remodelling stages. We use Exosome-based regenerative therapeutics and aesthetics. Our skin care treatments change the structure and the function of the skin even for the least compliant patients, so they still see a better skin quality restoration.



The VIVACE experience is a multi award-winning contouring and skin tightening non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment. In a nutshell, it combines the benefits of micro needling with the skin tightening effects of radio frequency. The VIVACE experience boasts a huge eight award wins over the past three years and is trusted and used by some of the most renowned international dermatologists and plastic surgeons.

When our clients discover that the Exosome and VIVACE treatments have been recommended by maxillofacial surgeons, dermatologists and aesthetic medical specialists they start to understand that it is not just a spa treatment it is an anti-ageing and regenerative treatment.
