Clin­ics lead way with lat­est in lasers

Havelock North Village Press - - News - By LINDA HALL

Tracey Price never looks at the clock when she’s with a client — her to­tal fo­cus is on the per­son in front of her.

“When I hit my 40s I de­cided I wanted to spe­cialise in re­sult­driven treat­ments. Peo­ple want results these days and that’s what we of­fer at HB Laser Skin Clin­ics,” Tracey says.

Tracey owns and op­er­ates three clin­ics in the Bay — one each in Have­lock North, Napier and Waipawa — of­fer­ing a range of ser­vices spe­cial­is­ing in laser hair re­moval, skin rejuvenation, tat­too re­moval and ap­pear­ance medicine.

“We of­fer the most ad­vanced non-sur­gi­cal ap­pear­ance treat­ments. Lo­cated con­ve­niently through­out Hawke’s Bay and we are com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing real results at af­ford­able prices.

“I’ve been in the in­dus­try for 25 years and in busi­ness now for 31⁄2 years. We are the first busi­ness in the Bay to be of­fer­ing SPL laser hair re­moval for light hair.

“We are also so lucky and priv­i­leged to have the only fully ac­cred­ited cos­metic doc­tor in the Bay, Dr Dani Wax­man, in our team.

“She of­fers not only botox and fillers but also spe­cialises in mole re­moval and PRP treat­ments, which help with hair loss and in­con­ti­nence, and breast and neck lifts, just to name a few. Dani has re­cently at­tended the 2018 NZ So­ci­ety of cos­metic medicine con­fer­ence, get­ting the lat­est up­dates.”

Tracey has used many dif­fer­ent lasers in her time in the beauty in­dus­try but has now ad­vanced to SPL hair re­moval tech­nol­ogy. The new gold­stan­dard ma­chine has been de­vel­oped by doc­tors and sci­en­tists. It’s Euro­pe­an­designed and man­u­fac­tured, un­like most other ma­chines.

“Square pulse light is safer, less painful and more suc­cess­ful than any other ma­chine on the mar­ket. An­other great pro­gres­sion is hair re­moval for dark com­plex­ions as well as red, white and blonde hair which was not pre­vi­ously avail­able on the mar­ket,” Tracey said.

“When I first started in the in­dus­try elec­trol­y­sis was the lat­est ad­vance­ment so it’s been great to keep up and see the changes over the years. We’re re­ally ex­cited with the ser­vices we of­fer. There are no other busi­nesses that are able to cater to such a broad range of clien­tele in our area.

“Out­side of Auck­land laser safety is not mon­i­tored, so it’s not reg­u­lated which means any­body could pick up a laser and start us­ing it, which is scary!

“We’re hop­ing this will all change but in the mean­time we’ve taken it upon our­selves to vol­un­tar­ily abide by the only cur­rent NZ guide­lines gov­ern­ing our in­dus­try.”

As well as con­tin­u­ing to run her busi­ness, Tracey is about to start study­ing part-time in a course which will al­low her to teach adults about laser.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited about this and it will also give me a chance to share my ex­pe­ri­ence in the in­dus­try.

“Tat­too re­moval which is of­fered is steadily grow­ing and we have big plans for its con­tin­ued growth.”
