This week a client came in and told me she had been looking at our website and had read my last blog which was after my Dad died….I can’t believe it’s been well over a year since I last wrote one!! Time definitely goes faster as you get older!
When you lose a loved one, people tell you as a comfort that they can help you more from the other side…. well that must be true as Wexford Skin Clinic has grown so much in 2016/2017!
In 2017, I was joined by Niamh, Sinead and Sarah and what a great team we have become! We share a passion for results and I’m blessed every day to have these girls to work alongside! If you’ve been in and met the girls you’ll know exactly what I mean.
In February, we joined forces with Dermalux and now offer this multi-award winning LED treatment in our clinic. Although a course of treatments are recommended, we have seen amazing results after just one treatment especially for inflammatory conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne and rosacea. Also it can be added on at the end of a facial treatment to boost those results even further! It’s even been known to help hangovers…. not that any of us girls would ever have a hangover 😉
In March, we celebrated our 2nd Birthday in the Riverbank…almost 200 ladies and a few male models thrown in for good measure gathered to listen to the ever-entertaining Skin Nerd give a talk about all things skincare.
In April, we moved into our swanky new home on Wexford Quayside….the decor is to die for and was all picked for me by designer extraordinaire, Keith Jordan of Westgate Design. To say I’m proud is an understatement…some nights I switch off the main lights and just sit there looking at it all (sad but true)….I love it!!
In June, my Mum joined me in London at the Four Seasons at Ten Trinity Square for the IIAA Salon of the Year Awards where we came 1st in Ireland in the Advanced Nutrition Programme. This signifies our knowledge of how important it is to treat the skin from the inside, after all, your skin is a reflection of what’s happening on the inside. Ruby Wax presented my award to me and boy is she a fun lady!
In July, Niamh and myself headed to Dublin for training with our third cosmeceutical skincare range called AlumierMD. Our clients are loving their products especially their physical-only SPFs (if you’re a client, you’ll know what that means 😉) and their peels are customised to each clients needs! Just like our other cosmeceuticals they use no parabens, perfumes or petrochemicals and are not tested on animals.
So the start of 2017 was nuts as you can see!! For the latter half of 2017, we were trying our best to keep up with demand as word of our results spread!As a business owner, it is the icing on the cake when your new clients are coming as a result of existing clients so thank you!
We are almost at the end of January now and we have lots of plans in the pipeline. Having been in the skin industry for 20 years I have built up lots of contacts and above all great friends who help me to bring the latest technology backed by peer-reviewed clinical studies… so stay tuned as we will be unveiling an exciting new treatment very soon!!
