Donna

As a long performing Skin & Laser Specialist, I can assure you that this industry moves at an extreme pace & is always inventing & incorporating the latest and best technologies to offer the greatest results to our clientele.

This is why after 17 years; I am still as excited as ever to work within such an industry where I have the opportunities to up-skill in my extensive knowledge of all things skin and laser and have chosen to continue doing so with Touch & Glow.

I have been with the Clinic for over 5 years now and I can honestly say that the depth of training and opportunities achieved here is like nothing I have experienced elsewhere within this industry and is of the highest of standards. To know that we can offer this knowledge to our clients and help them further along, whether it be your skin or laser journeys, is just so rewarding. Most of you with whom I have had the pleasure in consulting with or performing treatment on, will know the passion I have for all things Skin and Laser and I really do hope that this shines through when visiting me and
our team here in the clinic.
My many years of knowledge, training, up-skilling and performing treatments on my clients to achieve the best
results possible has led me to win ‘Beauty Therapist of the Year’, an amazing achievement for me and a real highlight in my career.I have just recently furthered my IPL knowledge with the Nordlys IPL System; this is next level – very results driven, so you will hear me directing you towards this as ‘real results’ is definitely my thing.

I am also a Phi-Brow Artist here in the clinic, something which I have always had a real interest in is brows. Even back when over-tweezing was a real thing, I was always pro fuller, more natural brows, eyebrows definitely define the face and for me these are one of our most important of all facial features.I am very proud to work alongside Charlene & our great team in such an amazing, prestigious clinic and I always look forward to meeting and welcoming all of our lovely clients where we can take your results to the
next level.
