About the team at Skin Co.
Kelly Waldegrave NZRN
IPL expert - Founder of Skin Co.
"15 years ago, I went to work at a laser clinic where I received a small amount of training and started attending clinics around Auckland. During some downtime, I performed a treatment on myself and ended up with a significant burn. I realised very quickly I was not qualified to be using the machine. When I approached the owner of the company and informed him that I needed more training, I was told to be quiet and get on with it! This simply wasn't acceptable to me. I wasn't willing to put any client at risk and immediately handed in my notice. The problem was, I loved the work, I loved the clinic and I loved helping clients. Not one to back down from a challenge, I decided that what I needed to do was excel in the field.
I flew to Australia to train under the best in the business, returned and set up Skin Co with a passion for raising standards in the industry. These machines are fantastic when used properly, but unfortunately there were no safety standards or protocols to ensure the clients were receiving safe treatments.
After gaining my qualifications and an in-depth knowledge of the subject, I become a trainer in Auckland and a representative for the Energist Ultra System. I believe the Energist is a sophisticated & extremely effective machine when combined with a highly skilled technician. I continue to see amazing results every clinic!"
“Kelly is a rare find in this industry,
her vast medical and clinical experience coupled with the highest level of commitment to client care is exceptional. Kelly has to be one of the most experienced IPL operators in New Zealand. West Auckland has been waiting for someone to provide this level of expertise, and now we have Kelly."
