New business owners Ebony Hornibrook and Kaylie Harrison are valuing the opportunity to develop their boutique appearance medicine and skin therapy business, Ivy Clinic in a growing Queenstown market.
Ivy Clinic recently opened in the Trenzseater Building on Frankton’s Hawthorne Drive and Ebony says the early response has been overwhelming.
“We felt there was a gap in the Queenstown appearance medicine and skin therapy market for a contemporary boutique clinic providing a bespoke service to clients. Kaylie and I worked together in the industry and it was through our experiences that we developed the same philosophy to offer honest, realistic advice while providing the best customer care.”
Kaylie is a registered nurse and has worked in both ICU and hospital theatres and spent the past three years in appearance medicine while Ebony is a qualified physiotherapist, with over ten years’ experience owning and managing clinics and as an appearance medicine consultant.
“Our treatments include anti-wrinkle treatmentsBotox® and Dysport®, dermal fillers and lip enhancement with the Juvederm range and we have the Dermapen 4, one of the best worldwide derma needling technologies currently in the market,” says Ebony.
The Ivy Clinic skin therapy treatments offer skin workouts, peels and facials using the cosmeceuticals range, Ultraceuticals, that has been specifically developed for harsh Australian and New Zealand environments.
“Our team are passionate about being 100% honest and realistic with clients. Kaylie is known for producing signature natural looks and Vicky our skin therapist has a gentle and thorough approach,” she says. “We work to enhance appearances and make clients look and feel amazing by listening to their concerns and aligning the best treatment for them.”
The new clinic’s chic interior features designer furniture, palms and chandeliers by Trenzseater alongside signature modern art, plants and funky music.
“Clients are wowed by our reception area at the top of the stairs with its stunning Italian stone desk highlighted by LEDs and pendant lighting, an abundance of greenery and the most amazing green velvet couch,” says Ebony. “The vibe is fresh and contemporary, and Kaylie and I are proud of what we have achieved by opening this business.”
