A Hidden Treasure
For the very best in personalised skin care
Nestled in the heart of the Hokowhitu Village, Anigma Beauty Therapy and IPL Laser Clinic is well known for its high standards of beauty treatments along with a truly relaxing and stress relieving atmosphere. Now under new ownership, Anigma is expanding and developing their range of services and products to suit the future needs of their clientele.
New owner Laura Harvey who took over Anigma at the beginning of February, has been involved in the beauty industry since her teen years when she trained as a beautician and eight years ago qualified as a beauty therapist.
“I was thrilled when the opportunity to buy Anigma came up as it gives me the opportunity to get fully involved in an industry which I love.”
Laura’s philosophy is to cater specifically to her clients’ needs and providing the best service and advice for each client, and while Laura is thoroughly trained in all aspects of beauty and beauty therapy, her major passion is looking after and maintaining the health and well-being of the skin.
“Along with all our other beauty treatments, a major focus for us will be on IPL for permanent hair reduction and the use of other skin rejuvenation processes. I also believe in the use of natural skin care products as they help to rebalance and remineralise the skin in a more gentle way. Our new products are Algologie which is a range of marine based skin care products, as well as the natural organic La Clinica range of cosmeceuticals.”
Another addition to Anigma’s services is their private lounge where clients can spend some quiet time after their treatments with a relaxing cup of La Clinica’s Spa Radiance herbal tea. The lounge is also available for private consultations with clients.
“Everyone has different concerns when it comes to their skin, it may be problems with pigmentation, scarring from acne or anti-ageing, and the private lounge gives us the opportunity to get to know more about our clients; what their major concerns are, what their lifestyle is like and what results they would like to achieve. We are then able to prescribe specific products to suit their individual needs.
“We will also explain the correct use of products and do a follow up with our clients to make sure their needs are being meet. Skin can change so sometimes their prescription needs to be altered. Our goal is to have good communication with our clients needs and work with our suppliers to provide the best results for all clients. If for any reason a service or product is not right come and talk with me so I can rectify the problem.”
In the few short weeks that Laura has been in the Hokowhitu Village she says she has been delighted by the friendliness of everyone she has met.
“I feel that I have been exceedingly blessed to have the opportunity to work in the Hokowhitu Village. It has a true family feel and everyone has been so supportive of both me and the Clinic. I would also like to thank all the clients of Anigma for their loyal support.”
Laura is also pleased to have Bre and Zeta as her team.
“They have been such an asset as they have contributed in so many ways to help me, frankly I would be lost with out them. It is such a joy to see Zeta and Brie working so closely with our clients and I learn so much from everyone and feel very grateful for our fantastic team. They are always very keen to learn more about our Industry, to provide the best service and advice to their clients and have great future goals in beauty therapy.”
