Meet Viv

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.

“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 want to work with you to achieve the best results.”

What People Say

Sharon E
I was given a gift voucher four years ago to have a treatment with Essence. At the time I had regular but mostly standard facials. I trusted Viv with her knowledge and technology. She treated my skin on a monthly basis and I followed her advice and did my homework (skin care), as she likes to call it. At 52, I now have a skin that is incredibly healthy and I can confidently go out without a lot of makeup.

When I came to Essence on St Heliers to get a laser treatment for a nail fungus I had struggled with for a few years, it was my last hope — and voilà, it did work! Thank you so much, Viv, for giving me the opportunity to go to yoga classes, wear jandals and much more. Thank you for making laser treatments more affordable, too.
