Our Clinic of the Month for September 2017, Talking Beauty, is celebrating 25 years in business this year. Starting from humble beginnings with two rooms above a hairdressing salon, they have grown into a thriving clinic in the bustling inner-city Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn with a dedicated and passionate team of staff with a band of loyal clientele. Owner, Jane, found time in her busy schedule to tell us about her clinic and of course, talk beauty! “Our amazing staff have many years of experience between them and are always striving to learn and improve their knowledge and skills. They are very devoted to me & Talking Beauty and they make it a pleasure to go to work every day”.
“A number of things keep me inspired professionally, including the training and conferences I attend both with dermaviduals and other organisations. dermaviduals offers first class training. They really care about their clinics and give us all the help we need to get outstanding results for our clients’ skins. I also find my amazing team so inspiring! We are always discussing our clients’ skin concerns to find the best results for our clients. I am also constantly inspired by the desire to find the best possible products and treatments for our clients, so they will leave happy and confident in their skin. It’s important to me to provide the best environment for my team so they are happy and can provide world-class service and treatments for our clients.”
What is your favourite dermaviduals product? “I really find it hard to pick just one product so I’ve settled on two! Mask with Vitamins and Lotion N are my all time favourites; I really can’t live without them.
I love Lotion N for its amazing moisturising ability and the way it leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth. I like to call it ‘lipids in a bottle’! As well as using it on my face, I use it on my body when I get out of the shower too. I do tend to go through a bottle very quickly, but this is my little indulgence.
I use Mask with Vitamins every day. I love the fact that my skin gets a big hit of the essential vitamins it needs in one product. It really makes my skin glow and leaves it looking and feeling its best!”
What’s your number one skincare tip?
“I can’t go past removing your makeup at night. It’s a simple one, but it really makes a big difference to how your skin looks and feels. And please, please don’t use soap!”
How do you keep up with the hype and what is genuine in regards to products and technology in our ever-evolving industry?
“I have been in the industry a long time and I’ve learnt that sometimes it’s better to wait and not just rush into the latest hype. I have many colleagues and friends in the industry, so if I don’t know about something, the chances are they will. Also with the education I have undertaken in skin, you know when something simply doesn’t make sense. I think experience counts for a lot and you learn to see through the hype.”
