The Junction based skin clinic launches The Bridal Room
There’s something really special about heading into a skin clinic to be treated, pampered, and ultimately getting the chance to spend some time on yourself. One thing that really elevates that entire experience is the people who meet you at the door.
Meet, Melissa Jean Charters, the brains behind The Junction-based skin clinic, Melissa Jean Skin Therapy.
“Our approach to skincare not only provides you with a mini midweek getaway but also significant results, every time,” Melissa shared.
If you’re one to always follow the trends when it comes to skin, you’ll well and truly have heard of this local business. Having been serving the local community for the last six years under Melissa Jean Beauty, 2021 saw it time for the business to mature into Melissa Jean Skin Therapy.
“The business was naturally heading towards skin base treatments. We still do a small number of beauty services, but our main focus now is skin therapy – hence the name change. It was fitting with where the business focus is at.”
With early experiences with skin troubles, Melissa always had a keen interest in understanding skin. Having left high school in year 10, Melissa went on to complete her Diploma in Beauty Therapy in 2005.
“I always had an interest in skin therapy and wanted to understand why the skin presents itself in the ways it does. My main goal is to make my clients feel comfortable in their own skin and for my clients to understand why the issues with their skin are occurring.”
Having kicked off the business in 2015 and building itself a reputation for all things beauty in the heart of The Junction, 2021 saw it time to take the plunge into cementing themselves as one of Newcastle’s premier skin institutions.
“Over the last six years, my staff numbers have increased, and we have been running out of space. Change was needed, however, I still wanted a boutique feel and I love The Junction location.
“I teamed up with Keeley from Something More and Nathan from Lawrence Build to help me design the space. My main goal was to continue that home feel and create a comfortable, inviting environment for the clients rather than the typical clinic style.”
Not stopping there, Melissa has also just launched the local business’ newest offering, The Bridal Room. Curating a range of skincare and beauty packages for the soon-to-be brides and bridesmaids, The Bridal Room is the answer to all of your skincare questions leading up to your wedding day.
“The Bridal Room has been a project of mine for a while now. We get a lot of brides to be coming through the salon. Most of the time they are very confused on where to start and are overwhelmed with their skin journey.
“The aim will be to deliver an easy step-by-step process for our brides so that they can enjoy this exciting time as much as possible and not have to think or worry about the process.”
Wanting to have glowing skin on your wedding day is the dream, but it doesn’t happen overnight! The team at Melissa Jean Skin Therapy has created three skincare treatment package options, designed especially to boost your beautiful, radiant skin.
The 3 Month Prep package is for those looking for an express option in the last few months leading up to the big day. Featuring a skin consultation, 3x Enzyme Therapy skin treatments, 1x Hydrating Glow Facial, 3x Healite Treatments, 2x MJS Lash Lifts, MJS Glow Calendar, Silvi Pillowcase, and a unique night before pack.
The 6 Month Glow package is the most popular of the three, featuring all of the above plus a few extras alongside 1x Firming and Tightening Facial and 4x Skin Needling Treatments. Lucky last is the ultimate bride’s dream; The 12 Month Magic. Featuring all the previous goodies but with more treatments and unlimited skin consultations with the MJS team.
So, whether you’re a bride-to-be looking for beautiful, glowing skin on your big day, or your part of the bridal party, or the mother of the bride (or groom) and you’re hoping to feel confident in your skin, check out The Bridal Room at Melissa Jean Skin Therapy.
Melissa Jean Skin Therapy will continue to offer its usual services alongside The Bridal Room. If you’re looking to spend some time understanding your skin, or just need a little pamper time to yourself, check out the range of skin treatments available at this Junction-based clinic.
“At MJS, we believe in combining traditional and advanced skin services with a holistic approach to your overall skin health. Furthermore, we believe education is of the utmost importance for our clients in their skincare journey. As such, our approach is to be honest, nurturing, and consistent with our delivery of service.
“Aiming to provide clients with the tools necessary to treat their skin and also make the right decisions regarding their overall skin health rather than simply providing treatment in salon. We believe in treating the skin from within.”
With big plans to continue bringing more skin-focussed treatments and offerings to the people of Newcastle, we’re excited to watch as the Melissa Jean Skin Therapy journey continues over the coming months and years!
