With a client list that includes some of the who’s who of the Sydney influencer scene, I recently had the chance to go into The Clinic and see what all the fuss was about… and now I’m not entirely sure why I waited so long to do so. Launched in 1999 by Kaye Scott and Lisa Sullivan-Smith, The Clinic has become one of the most prestigious and sought after medical skin clinics in Sydney. And about 10 seconds of just talking with Kaye – it was abundantly clear they know their stuff.
But while The Clinic offers a host of services, it’s the Blueberry Peel that has become the signature treatment – and the go-to for influencers across the board. Touted as an “ideal introductory treatment or pick-me-up before a special event”, we decided to pull Kaye aside to find out a little more about the treatment and why it’s been gaining a cult following…
What exactly is the Blueberry Peel and why is it so popular?
The Blueberry Antioxidant Peel by Cosmedix is a combination of antioxidant blueberry extracts with stimulating lactic acid and is a powerful yet gentle exfoliating peel and scrub. Different to your typical facial, the Blueberry Antioxidant Peel involves the application of a gentle chemical agent to remove the dead epidermal layer of the skin, revealing the brighter skin beneath.
What makes this treatment a standout?
Zero downtime, instantly brighter skin, can be done the day of or the day before an event or holiday – anything special that may be coming up to ensure your skin is instantly brighter and looks generally healthier.
Is this treatment for everyone?
The treatment is recommended for all skin types.
How often do you need to get the treatment to ensure your skin continues to glow?
Once a month is recommended for blueberry peels.
Should you be complementing the treatment with a different procedure?
Home care products are essential in maintaining the overall health and wellbeing of the skin. 70-80% of results are due to the skincare patients take home and are using every day, the other 20-30% are in clinic treatments.
Why would you recommend this treatment above others?
The treatment is superior as it requires no downtime, there is no prepping product required prior to treatment, and results are instant.
Who are some of the influencers you have treated?
Lisa Wipfli, Laura Dundovic, Amie Rohan, Phoebe Burgess, Terry Biviano, Candice Warner, Cassey Maynard, Yan Yan Chan, Marcia Leon, Emma Freedman and Leah Simmons.
