Paparoa beauty clinic, Skin Image, has reached the finals of a national beauty industry award after just seven months of operation.
The inaugural New Zealand Association of Registered Beauty Professionals has selected the business as a finalist in the ‘best new clinic’ category.
Owner and therapist Nina Quan believes her single-minded vision and results achieved through her recent ‘skin challenge’ with local ladies has helped secure a place among the top four entries.
“My vision is to create a small reputable clinic that delivers efficacious treatments using proven technology and products to help women achieve healthy, beautiful skin,” she said.
Involvement in the beauty business stemmed from Nina’s passion for skin science while studying biochemistry and genetics for her science degree. Nina’s clinic in the main street of Paparoa has attracted attention since the building was refurbished and refitted late last year.
She offers advanced skincare treatments including electroporation, LED light therapy and collagen induction therapy as well as other treatments.
Nina says her business is well supported by locals and residents from the wider Kaipara district and she has also noted clients increasingly include Aucklanders who regularly holiday in the area.
As part of the award process Nina will give a presentation on her clinic and will be interviewed by a panel of judges in Auckland next month. The winner will be announced at a red-carpet function at Te Papa in Wellington on September 30.
