I started boutique skin-therapy clinic Essence on St Heliers in Auckland’s Eastern Bays more than 20 years ago. I wanted to offer clients a more personalised approach in an environment that was non-threatening, private and relaxed, yet using industry-leading technology.
The services we offer have kept evolving with this fast-changing industry. Our commitment to the highest quality laser technology, Dermastamp, microdermabrasion and top cosmeceutical brands means we can offer the very latest treatments in the market.
Most important to me is the level of trust my clients enjoy in my ability and my opinions on the options for facial treatments. I know you want visible results from your investment, and I particularly enjoy combining treatment techniques and home care to produce the best results.
The excel HR from Cutera is one of the most respected lasers in the market, and is the cornerstone of the Essence treatment menu. Whether to return firmness to your skin, remove unwanted hair or small, unsightly veins, or treat rosacea, sunspots or teenage acne scarring, I can use this wonderful technology to help you.
I look forward to getting to know you.
