1.Tell us about your clinic, staff and local area.
Seetha Louise | Traralgon Beauty Salon is a boutique studio located in Regional Gippsland Traralgon, Victoria. Owner, Seetha, combines her 34-year knowledge as a beauty therapist, owner of Traralgon Beauty Salon for 24 years and Cosmetic tattooist for the past 6 of those years, together to provide a modern, innovative and informed approach to skin care.
I love helping my clients achieve life changing skin transformations.
In the past 12 months, I relocated my large salon to a home lux studio offering private and personalized treatments away from the hustle and bustle of an inner city environment. I take great pride in delivering the best skincare knowledge and treatments to create the ultimate bespoke skin journey. My belief that not one fits all, results in an approach that “no two treatments or products are ever the same”.
2.What’s your favourite thing about your job?
“My favourite thing about my job is that my clients instil so much trust in me with something as important as their skin. I feel a lot of pride seeing my clients walk out of my beauty room glowing, feeling so much more confident and happier with their skin. I truly enjoy being able to take my clients on an educational skin journey.
3.What is your favourite dermaviduals product and why?
OMG this is a very hard question as there are just so many amazing products and so many amazing skin results that I have seen. My favourite product HAS to be Lotion N, without any hesitation. It is like no other skincare product I have ever seen and of course topical EFA, giving you that amazing skin GLOW!!
4.What are your clinic’s most popular treatments?
Exceed Collagen Induction Therapy – Medical micro-needling there is no skin needling machine like this ONE!! I LOVE this treatment. The results just speak for themselves. I perform this a lot for anti-aging, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and dull sluggish skin, and LED light therapy has taken my clients skin journey to the next level.
5.What are the challenges of running a salon?
Running a business demands a lot of time and commitment. Once the door closes at the end of the day there is so much more to do: marketing, advertising, study etc. I think one of the biggest challenges, is work balance, knowing when to switch off and of course, staff. Trying to maintain a constant and consistent business in these COVID times has been particularly challenging.
6.What do you think is the secret to running a successful salon business?
Oh wow, so many elements go into running a successful salon, however for me, there are two that really stand out. Number one is my passion and my love for the industry. These two attributes form the foundations of my salon’s core values. Number two, would be, ‘Excellence in Customer Service’, treating each and every client exceptionally well giving 110% of my attention, knowledge and expertise at each and every visit.
7.What makes Seetha Louise | Traralgon Beauty different from other skin clinics?
“Knowledge, Trust, Empathy, Commitment”, I am very proud to be a, if not the only Corneotherapist, in Traralgon delivering bespoke and customised treatments that are not readily available. I pride myself on my dedication and commitment to education. In this ever-evolving industry, it’s imperative that I constantly strive to be up to date by studying the new treatments and knowledge that becomes available.
My work comes from the heart. I truly care for my clients; they are not just a client they are a friend. I build strong relationships with them, and they have complete trust in me. My work with them doesn’t just end after their treatment, it is ongoing with those endless after-hours social media messages that sometimes go all night.
I am here to support each client giving my full commitment and attention. Partnering with dermaviduals was honestly the best move I could have made for my business.
It just makes so much sense being able to prescribe products that you are confident can achieve results; it takes the game to another level. I love that I can treat all types of skin and skin disorders. It is extremely fulfilling knowing that I have made a difference. That makes me so happy. With previous brands I could not treat or get medical results. Everyone deserves healthy, happy skin and that’s what dermaviduals does best!
