Gosia is a New Zealand trained beautician, corneotherapist, electrologist and massage therapist. Her interest in skin health and treatment began when she initially struggled with her own sensitive skin causing her to seek answers. She learned first-hand how there is no “quick fix” that can achieve long-lasting results.
She strongly believes that skin health is a representation of many internal and external factors from lifestyle, nutrition and stress to allergies, hormones and environment. Gosia works in-depth with her clients treating causes instead of masking symptoms. Her method is to work on both the outside and inside and can involve working closely with naturopaths, nutritionists and other holistic practitioners to assist clean eating and gut health, chemical elimination and harmony within the body in order to achieve ultimate skin health.
A facial treatment with Gosia is an in depth process where she will work to find the cause of any existing skin issues whilst enjoying a completely relaxing and beautifying treatment. You’ll leave feeling completely blissed out with confidence that you are working towards a positive outcome for your skin. Her greatest joy is seeing her clients achieve the long-lasting results they have dreamed of and have struggled to achieve with previous treatment methods.
Dermaviduals is Gosia’s skincare of choice, using the best ingredients from around the world, the very best in science together with innovative and proven research is at the heart of Dermaviduals. Products can be completely customised to specific skin conditions and are free from fragrances, preservatives and parabens, emulsifiers, colours, silicones and more nasty ingredients found in so many skin products today, which can distress and irritate the skin as well as reducing the skin barrier’s effectivess of protecting itself and carrying out it’s essential natural functions for healthy skin.
Many clients are shocked to hear that even products labelled, “organic” and “natural” can contain hidden nasties. Gosia has full confidence with her products as they are made up of medical grade active concentrates without harmful ingredients that are suitable for all skin types and conditions. The Dermaviduals range is even more effective as all products are custom blended for each client and ingredients have a 100% guaranteed absorption rate through the skin. Gosia can ensure each of her clients receive a perfect, unique blend of the finest ingredients to repair, nurture and maintain a strong skin barrier resulting in healthy, glowing skin.
Corneotherapy, a term coined by Prof. Dr. A. M Kigman, is the science of the epidermal skin barrier defence system. In short, corneotherapy is the process of maintaining and restoring healthy skin by treating the deeper layers instead of just the symptoms on the surface layers. Gosia uses treatments and products that help maintain a strong and healthy barrier for skin and does not use products or techniques that may compromise or disrupt your skins natural defense system and function.
One of the major advantages of corneotherapy is that it achieves very similar results to topical pharmaceuticals whilst being largely free from side effects unlike the latter. Corneotherapy is central to the philosophy of Dermaviduals, where the skin care improves the function of the skin barrier and the overall balance of the skin and also protects from irritants and allergens.
