About Us

"Our main area of expertise is correcting and managing your skin problems.  We have a huge emphasis on educating you truthfully about how to care for your skin and giving you realistic ways for you to achieve the results you want.   We deliver results driven treatments for long term skin health."  - Helen Daly

Owned and operated by renowned skin treatment therapist Helen Daly, trained by Dr. Desmond Fernandes M.B.;B.Ch.;F,R,C,S and Dr. Lance Setterfield M.D. and working alongside dermatologists, skinfocus goes far beyond the capabilities of your regular beauty salon.  Not only do they give exceptional customer service, they also  educate, inspire and give confidence to patrons.  This is approached by finding out what you want from your treatments and products and by treating everyone as individuals.  "We take careful consideration to give everyone advice that applies to them and their lifestyle.  One size doesn’t fit all.”

Skinfocus is in the heart of Aro Vally, an inner-city suburb that perfectly captures the essence of Wellington.  Located on Aro Street in amongst the cafes, craft beer and across the road from the hairdressers, there is free two hour parking.  Set in one of the areas character buildings, the clinic is in a contemporary style.  Modern, minimal and clean.  Privacy is an important factor and each room is totally private.  A consultation room has been added with special lighting for the clinics signature treatment, the 'Advanced Skin Analysis.'  "We, skinfocus, offer cutting edge, exciting treatments with an emphasis on educating you truthfully."

Excited to travel and widen her perspective, Helen has traveled, worked and trained all over the world. These experiences facilitated her understanding of active ingredients in both professional and retail products. It also led her to incorporate anti-aging and "advanced homecare" procedures into the scope of her treatments and allowed her to fine-tune both her style of straightforward communication with clients and exceptional customer service. 

Helen strongly believes in a problem-solving, uncomplicated, yet effective approach to skin care. Her ability to treat a wide range of skin care conditions such as acne, rosacea, pigmentation, sensitized and aging skin, or work with the individual who wants to enhance and maintain the look they have, make Helen an asset to her clients. Her combination of modernized treatments along with a recommended home care regime has kept them looking fabulous and coming back for years.
