An expert in the field of beauty and body contouring, owner of The Derm Lab, Sharni Dean, stands out in the industry by promoting serious self-confidence. We sat down with her to uncover the future of skincare, her beauty journey and The Derm Lab’s secrets.
How did you begin in the skincare industry?
About 12 years ago, I began my journey as a sales rep for a pharmaceutical company looking after a diabetes portfolio. An opportunity presented with a small aesthetic company in Melbourne which I accepted selling cosmetic devices to nurses, doctors, surgeons and business owners. I worked with a lot of amazing practitioners and companies selling injectables, lasers, body contouring devices and then towards the end of my time on the sales side, I worked nationally as a clinical trainer educating clients and their staff.
What drew you to it?
I have always had a passion for helping people to look and feel their best on the inside and out. So many people struggle with bad body image and or trying to look like someone else, I wanted to change that. It’s not about changing who you are, but instead helping to enhance your beautiful features and sculpt small changes so people are happy and confident within themselves.
What skincare issues does The Derm Lab specialise in?
We specialise in treatments from medical grade facial and peels, skin treatments such as microdermabrasion, skin needling and the V-Plasma Facial (Platelet Rich Plasma), injectables for anti-wrinkle and facial sculpting. Not all treatments have immediate results, so it’s all about working out our clients’ needs and working with them on their skin and beauty journey towards that end result with long lasting effects. My aim is to only invest in treatments that work, have proven results, and are the latest cutting-edge technology to help clients achieve their aesthetic goals.
What’s something people wouldn’t know about your clinic?
We opened in late November 2018 and we are located in such a beautiful light filled, boutique space! Everybody comments as they walk through our doors on how wonderful and uplifting it feels, most wouldn’t know that we also have a clinic in Melbourne that has been in business for nearly two years.
Could you tell us about the EMSCULPT treatment? What is it and is it true this is the future of plastic surgery?
Our Melbourne clinic was one of the first in Australia to implement this amazing new technology and we are very excited to be able to offer this treatment in our Brisbane clinic very soon. EMSCULPT is a game changer in the non-invasive arena as clients can now build muscle at the same time as burn fat with its HIFEM technology. It is currently indicated & approved to treat abdomen, buttocks and thighs and is definitely the future of body sculpting. This treatment will not replace plastic surgery, but is a fantastic alternative being non-invasive with no downtime.
