“I have bought all of the gear and equipment and the intention is to grow the brand and expand my business.
“I just launched it on Facebook and Instagram and worked on my branding in the background.
“I’ve only been live for a week and had eight bookings – it’s going to be a lot more popular, but the response so far has been really positive.
“There’s nothing like it in Lanarkshire.”
Lisa’s idea came after treating her own teeth and gave her the inspiration to start her own business.
Lisa called the results “out of this world” and took a leap of faith and said “why not”.
The 46-year-old mother of two lives with her two sons Hugo, 15-year-old and 11-year-old Milo in Dunbeth.
Lisa also works for Entrepreneurial Scotland and mentors other budding local entrepreneurs.
She added, “I will continue to help entrepreneurs on their business trip.
“But it has always been my ambition to work for myself. I enjoy the independence and autonomy and am excited about this new business and that’s why I decided to start it in my hometown.
“It was really good. I’ve seen about 15 people through in the past two weeks. It’s a fantastic process and some people will return for further treatment to get the desired effect.
“Everything went very well. It’s a very encouraging start, so I’m happy.”
