The team at Laser Lipo Ltd
Mrs Sharon Cobley – Group Director
Sharon has over 30 years experience of the beauty and aesthetic market. Having originally been qualified as a Vidal Sassoon hairdresser in the 1980's, she went on to pioneer “Pretty Woman” semi-permanent make-up academy. Sharon established and ran salons and SPAs in both the UK and Spain.
Sharon worked with one of the fastest growing national sales networks in England. Her time in this sector, created her very structured and successful sales foundation and approach. Property renovations and dealings are of a personal interest and “hobbie” to her even today.
Over the years, as Sharon built up and extended her knowledge with deep facial peels and Class 4 lasers, she established a network of close associations with top International cosmetic surgeons. These included doctors such as Brent Tanner in England, Jan Carlos Pou in Spain and Dr Lyle Back in Pennsylvania, USA.
The knowledge and these connections have been at the heart of Laser Lipo Ltd from the beginning. Sharon's understandings of the aesthetic market place, whether on a medical or beauty level, have been instrumental in both the company's product development and future research and design.
Sharon designed the world’s first ever, instant double chin reduction treatment with medical guidance from Plastic Surgeon, Dr Lyle Back. *Patent pending
Mr Ian Cobley - Director

CPL as the market leader, supported promotional activities for companies such as Ford Motor Company, M&S, British Telecom, the British government, the Post Office, Shell, BP, British American Tobacco, Philip Morris and Pinewood Film Studios.
When coupled with Sharon's extensive aesthetic knowledge, they have taken Laser Lipo Ltd to where it is now, a successful and International company.
Ian’s natural entrepreneurial skills have been invaluable to ensure future success for the company.
