Hi Melanie, thanks for chatting to Style. Tell us, how did you find your feet in the world of skincare? When did it all begin?
Straight out of school! I’d decided to work in beauty from a really young age, and once I’d studied beauty therapy I found my passion laid within the skincare realm. After working in more traditional spa environments for a few years, I studied further, obtaining dermal and international qualifications before transiting across to doctor-led medical practices. While I was super impressed by the results that we could achieve working with clinical treatments such as deeper peels, needling, and lasers, I missed the ritual of traditional spa practices. When I opened my own business some ten years later, I combined both disciplines – I don’t believe you should have to sacrifice the experience for results or vice versa.
