Celebrating 6 Years – We share our Journey
To start off, we would like to thank everyone who has been directly or indirectly involved in the success of our company. October 2018 marks the 6 year anniversary of what, for us, has been, and still is, an awesome roller coaster of fun, challenges, and unforgettable experiences.
I have been asked to share some of Silk Laser history in celebration of our anniversary with a special surprise for November in the mix!
Question 1: How did Silk Laser come about? What inspired you to start the company?
I have been interested in nutrition and done a lot of work with people leading up opening up Silk Laser Studio. I worked with the elderly, mentally challenged and kids with learning challenges in Switzerland the UK and South Africa. Loving working with people and having an entrepreneurial spirit I started studying beauty therapy with the thought to open up a salon.
I then had my first laser hair removal treatment. This was so revolutionary and effective that I immediately looked into purchasing a machine.
It changed my life and I get such amazing pleasure in sharing this with revolutionary treatment with others.
Question 2: How many people were on the team when you just started out? How many team members does Silk Laser currently have.
I started out with myself and Robynne who helped me get the business off the ground while I was at home with my little girl.
I then ran it alone until Wendy came and helped me take a break.
We are now a team of 4 with an added team member Lene who does microblading and permanent make up, working along-side us.
Its great having the young members of the team joining in as I feel so happy to provide an opportunity for the beautiful and intelligent younger generation.
Question 3: What made you decide on the range of treatments you offer to clients?
The treatments on offer are dictated by demand ie: what clients come in asking for. It’s a great pleasure to problem solve and find answers for clients with different skin concerns.
Question 4: Are you amazed, overwhelmed with your success? Did you think you would get this far?
The ideas have always been there. We may even open up another branch. But it’s great to see it all come into fruition.
Question 5: It has been 6 years so far. You must have had some hilarious moments. Tell us a funny story or two.
In the spirit of confidentiality and that we take our jobs quite seriously I’ll pass on this question J
Question 6: In your time you must also have had some tear jerking situations. Does any come to mind that started off in tears but ended in smiles?
I feel this amazing need to help. And we’ve had many a lady in tears in the salon. It’s for us to be supportive and helpful in these moments. It gives me the greatest pleasure to see a client after a year or 2 and they thank me for the great results that they have experienced and how we’ve helped.
Laser can be so much more than just cosmetic. Feeling confidence in appearance and skin can be so taken for granted as not everyone is so blessed and fortunate to be naturally flawless. We like to help women embrace their natural beauty and only endeavour to enhance the natural radiance of the persons own beauty.
Question 7: Do you have any special anniversary packages or treatments on offer?
We’d like to offer our clients 50% off all laser hair removal treatments for the month of November for reading this interview JJJ
Question 8: What motivates you on a daily basis?
The happiness of our clients, delivering great results and meeting wonderful people.
Question 9: Who/What is your biggest support?
I’d have to say my partner Leeroy who believes in me and supports me through thick and thin. Also my parents for endless babysitting when I have been at workJ
Question 10: If you can go back in time, would you do anything differently?
Not at all.
Question 11: If you can give a very special ‘shout out’ to anyone, who would it be and why?
To all of our clients. We value you all so incredibly much!!!!!
Question 12: What is on the cards for the future of Silk Laser? What can we all look forward to?
With our new medical grade German technology we have now delivered the very best. We are looking into possibly adding in microdermabrasion and leg vein removal….
