A million miles from the wind chimes and whale sounds of a traditional spa environment, this is a new concept challenging the status quo of ‘beauty’ with its unique approach and Auckland’s first open plan Skin Lounge.
“There is no hiding the health of your skin! So at Skintopia we begin with a holistic view of your wellbeing and lifestyle, as we believe that these are the building blocks of healthy, glowing skin,” says Natasha Bourke, Founder and Director of Skintopia.
“The industry is often focused on ‘anti-ageing’, ‘beauty’ and ‘pampering’, rather than being results-driven and offering bespoke treatments– after all, no two people are the same – so neither are our treatment plans.”
Auckland’s first open-plan Skin Lounge offers a unique, energetic space for individuals and groups to receive express skin treatments, grooming and education. Featuring reclined, comfortable treatment beds, this space has been designed to ensure clients leave as refreshed and revitalised as their skin.
Skintopia sets out to offer visible differences in skin health after just one visit. Utilising advanced and proven cosmeceutical formulations in DermalogicaPRO, treatments incorporate latest technological advancements including micro-current, LED light, hydro dermabrasion, oxygen and collagen therapy.
Each guest at Skintopia receives a bespoke experience diagnosed to deliver results for their skin needs and concerns. A variety of professional product combinations and electrical modalities are used within the treatments, with the option to Power Up (one enhancement) for an additional $40 or Super Charge (two enhancements) for an additional $60. An ‘enhancement’ includes such modalities as Microcurrent; hydrodermabrasion; LED light, or a Contour Masque. For those seeking privacy or relaxation, enclosed therapy rooms offer the Dermalogica ProSkin 60, a 60-minute tailored skin treatment, massage and other services such as grooming.
Skintopia pride themselves on handpicking the best qualified skin therapists who are all experts in their craft, and fanatical about skin.
“Taking great care of your skin is up there on our priority list with the importance of seeing a dentist! If you’re obsessed about investing in results and not just relaxation, then Skintopia is the right place for you,” concludes Bourke.
Combining professional advice, bespoke advanced skin treatments, and utilising the best technology, Skintopia also stocks products from coveted brands such as Dermalogica, The Beauty Chef, Aleph Beauty, Be Pure, Revitalash, Anxietea and Dose & Co, to ensure your skin also looks its best from within. With such a holistic view on beauty and wellbeing Skintopia is certainly set to become Auckland’s destination in skin health.
The space has been created in collaboration with interior design agency Material Creative, taking inspiration from the skin, using materials and colours to represent the skins layers, texture and structure.
Skintopia was established in Wellington in 2019 by Natasha Bourke, with the Auckland Commercial Bay salon now open, found at Level 2, 21 Queen Street, Commercial Bay, Auckland, (09) 218 4461.
