We are nothing pretty & fluffy at all. We are about educating our customers & giving our professional advice. We analyze the skin, we are scientists with knowledge of ingredients. I also offer Cosmetic Teethwhitening in NZ, & 1 of only 2 NZCTWA qualified to teach this service in your salons. Apparently our Training manual is way more thorough than the dentists one! We give out so much advice on oral "health" care!
So yes I feel very strong about this!

Because I’m both a Physiotherapist & Dermal Clinician and ALL my work is health, from therapeutic massage to skin solutions to wound/scar management, insulting to classify my qualifications otherwise!

There has been a huge movement in the beauty industry as of late. We no longer just do ‘fluffy’ treatments and wax brows. We have clients coming to us with real skin issues such as acne, hyperpigmentation and rosacea. We need to understand the internal systems of the body to know why this is happening to their skin, to provide clients with life changing results. I strongly believe the industry should be based in a medical/health category.

We are regulated under existing health laws, our industry delivers health care services now, including minimally invasive treatments that can burn, scar and break the surface of the skin. We are legally enforced under the healthcare sector and so it makes logical and legal sense that we are therefore catagorised under this sector also. When an employer seeks to find staff from our industry they are not looking for a creative person who can do pretty make up or curl their hair nicely, they are seeking qualified and experienced healthcare providers who can treat the skin, with high end technical and sometimes powerful machines.
