Vivo Skin Clinic Remuera, Auckland
Vivo Beauty Therapist of the Year 2018 & 2017
Medik8 Beauty Therapist of the Year NZ 2016
How long have you been in the beauty industry for?
Since I was 16, so I have over 13 years experience, I have worked in all areas of the beauty industry, such as makeup artist, brow specialist, theatrical and media makeup and a skin specialist.
How did you get into beauty and skin therapy?
Since a very young age I knew I wanted to work with in the industry. My mum and aunties are in the industry too, so I suppose it runs through my blood. As a child, my friends would come over on the weekend so I could do their hair and makeup, and I’d make beauty potions for them and perform facials too. I think I was born to do this!
What do you love most about being a Skin Therapist?
I love helping people love the skin they are in, making them feel happy and confident. This industry is always evolving and growing, and because of this I know I will never get bored in my career - there’s always something to learn.
The technology and science is getting better week by week, it amazes me just how much work goes into a single product. Because there has been such advancement in our industry, I can help my clients achieve so much when it comes to their skin, there’s a pathway to help everyone’s condition. Since I’ve become a therapist things have come so far.
What would you like everyone to know about skincare?
My goal and my passion is to educate everyone of my clients to achieve the best results possible. Skincare isn’t just a luxury, it’s a need, hence why we call it a treatment not a service. It should be an investment, you’ll never look back and regret this kind of investment.
What are your favourite skin treatments?
Dermal needling has to be my favourite! It works deep into the dermal layer where it can aid in the prevention of aging, with issues around scarring, skin tone and skin texture, while refining open pores, fine lines and wrinkles. After three treatments the result always blows me away!
What is your favourite product?
Comedix Simply Brilliant is a must-have! 95% my clients either have concerns with scarring and pigmentation and this is the perfect serum to brighten up the skin. If the client does not have any of pigmentation issues already it is extremely effective in preventing the development of it. It’s an awesome all rounder and suits all skin types.
