take your skin to the next level
advanced skin care clinic in Taupo
beauty of management
Rather than a series of random, one-off treatments, The advanced skin care clinic in Taupo - skinmatters works with clients to develop a programme where their beauty – reflected by their skin quality – is managed. Although we can and do provide specific beauty services, we prefer to focus on your overall skin health. A rejuvenating, focused skin health plan can start any time, for men and women alike.
At skinmatters, programmes are not predetermined, but are driven by you and your feelings about your skin. The process often starts with a specific concern or problem, or even just a desire to ‘freshen up’ skin-wise. This is an opportunity to explore your concerns with knowledgeable experts, who then develop an individually tailored programme to manage your skin health.
An in-depth skin consultation and analysis is the first step to developing a skin treatment plan tailored to your lifestyle. We offer a full skin care package; consultation, analysis, advice, and client support, as well as individual facials, treatment programmes, and homecare recommendations.
Proper skin care starts with the “canvas” - our skin. An in-depth skin consultation and analysis is the first step to developing a skin treatment plan tailored to your lifestyle. During the one hour visit, we discuss your concerns, and evaluate your skin for visible and underlying sun damage, redness, brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, pore size, oil production, bacterial makeup, and acne tendencies.
Based on your individual results and desires, we develop an individualised short and long-term treatment plan, along with additional at home options. Follow up consultations are provided every 4-6 months, enabling us to reevaluate your skin health progress, and make updates to your plan. With regular check-ins, both the skin specialist and client become accountable, creating extraordinary, vibrant results.
Our high quality, professional facials use medical grade skincare products and Environ DF Technology to achieve nourishing, refreshing results. Each client’s facial protocol and personalized “recipe” of products is designed specifically for them. This custom mix of corrective vitamins and nutrients rejuvenates and ameliorates the skin, improving conditions such as; pigmentation, rosacea, eczema, hydration, radiance, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, skin texture and acne.
deep pore cleansing
If you suffer from congestion, blocked pores, blackheads, uneven skin texture and mild to severe acne — then deep pore cleansing is the answer. Our medical grade treatment will prepare your skin for extractions, removing impurities, refining as well as soothing and rehydrating your skin.
Dermaplaning is an advanced method of hair removal, which removes the light vellus hair from the face (also known as “peach fuzz”) and dead skin cells instantly, revealing the smooth, vibrant skin underneath. Dermaplaning is five times more effective and safer than microdermabrasion, leaving the skin fresh, smooth, and hair free. Dermaplane treatments can also be followed by a medical facial or clinical peel to enhance results.
NB. Other hair removal methods require heat and are potentially damaging to the skin such as waxing.
skinmatters offers professional clinical peels, adapted for every skin type. Depending on your concerns and lifestyle, we customise a series of clinical peels that compliment your prescription skincare products and skin care regime. The treatments enhance or accelerate your results for clear, glowing, youthful-looking skin.
