Paulina de los Reyes

Qualified Dermal Therapist, Beauty Therapist, Makeup Artist & Eyebrow Tattooist

Position: Owner and Manager

What do I do in clinic: I specialised in eyebrow PMU Powder, Ombre tattooing as well as in RF Skin needling with Scarlet and Micro Needling with Dermapen 4 and DP Dermaceutical devices. I perform all advanced technology skin treatments with Cutera Excel V+ and Excel HR, specialising in Pigmentation & Vascular lesions as well as Green and Red Laser Genesis. I perform most of all signature, clinical and medical facials and peels. In the beauty area I specialise in Full body sugaring including Brazilians, brow sculpt, brow lamination, shape or tidy with wax or sugar, brow tinting, lash lifts and lash tint. My passion and love is treating the skin with dermal technology and machinery, witnessing the amazing results on my clients is the most rewarding experience in my career. I love makeup for special occasions and bridal, working for companies like MAC in my early days has given me the foundations and expertise in the makeup area.  Although I am an expert with laser IPL hair removal and body waxing, I only perform this type of therapy when necessary.

A little about me and the industry: Born and lived in Mexico, till my adventurous side took off. While in Europe I fell in love and Australia is now home. Love at first sight and passion was grown immediately for the Dermal and Beauty industries as when I arrived in Australia I decided to study Dermal, Beauty Therapy and Makeup Artistry to become qualified in the industry and of course to get hands on in the field. Now with the years that have passed, 18 to be exact, more studying has come and I have achieved a qualification as a Eyebrow Tattooist and as a Dermal Therapist.

Before having my own business I managed to work and gained incredible experience in some awesome companies like Endota Spa and M.A.C Cosmetics. Williamstown, Newport, Altona, Altona North, Yarraville, Footscray, Port Melbourne, Point Cook and surrounding suburbs are in my list of most loyal clients however word of mouth and social media have been really kind to us as, North and Eastern Melbourne residents cross the city to see me.

Having over 17 years experience within the industry, my skin knowledge, modern skin therapies, facials and makeup skills are outstanding, my attention to detail is remarkable as well as my therapy and quality of work. I pride myself for being extra thoughtful and thorough with our guests.
