And just like that, another year has flown by. It feels like just yesterday we were digging out our winter woolies; now, we’re putting up our Christmas decorations and settling into the festive season.
2023 has been a growth year for Mudgee’s Beauty Reclaimed Cosmetic Centre. We’ve expanded our team, added new services and machines, and focused on moving towards a holistic wellness approach across the clinic.
This year, we farewelled our beloved Tash, who had been with the business since its move to bigger premises on Market Street, and Hannah, who moved onto new ventures at the end of the year. But, we also welcomed some new faces. We welcomed a new cosmetic injector, Sarah. With injectable treatments in high demand, trained nurse Sarah was a perfect fit to strengthen the injectables side of Beauty Reclaimed.
Sarah brings a wealth of clinical experience to team BR, along with a friendly, comforting and relaxed approach - exactly what you need during injectable appointments!
She has also allowed Ange to step back a little from face-to-face treatments, enabling her to work on the business and strategise and plan for the future.
2023 also saw the addition of Erika to the BR team. Erika joined the business as a part-time receptionist, helping to manage the clinic’s ever-growing administration arm. Erika has been a welcome arrival, keeping day-to-day operations running smoothly and managing the myriad of behind-the-scenes tasks.
Erika’s arrival also heralded a new treatment for the clinic - the Emsella machine. Erika’s business, Inner Strength Mudgee, officially moved into the clinic in September, offering a dedicated machine for people struggling with their pelvic floor.
The specially developed chair helps treat urinary incontinence and pelvic floor issues, particularly post-childbirth, as well as working to improve sexual health and function. It’s been well-received by clients and newcomers alike - we can’t wait to see it continue to grow next year.
We also added a state-of-the-art Venus Versa to the clinic - a powerful, industry-leading machine that uses three different technologies to target common skin concerns, tighten skin and reduce hair growth.
It’s delivered some incredible results, and helped dozens of clients with everything from unwanted hair to enlarged pores, pigmentation and wrinkles.
We also officially released the Airy Day sunscreen line in-clinic, giving clients access to a silky, clear and easy-to-wear sunscreen, and Vida Glow - the best natural marine collagen powder for skin, hair & nails.
These new machines and treatments have helped move Beauty Reclaimed Cosmetic Centre towards our goal of creating a holistic wellness space. Many of our clients are now using services across injectables, skin, beauty and the Emsella, and seeing great results from a combined treatment approach.
We are keen to further grow our clinic as a wellness centre - a place for clients to relax, rejuvenate and reset, and leave feeling lighter.
Our focus in 2024 will be on taking a more overarching view when it comes to our clients’ treatments, using our combined service offering to deliver fantastic results.
Finally, we’ve also focused heavily on community engagement in 2023.
We recognise that we’re part of a tight-knit, closely held community in Mudgee, and wanted to play a bigger role in giving back to a community that’s given us so much!
This year, we hosted our first-ever Biggest Morning Tea, raising just over $1000 for the Cancer Council and also offered a special Pink Facial during October as part of the region’s Pink Up Mudgee celebrations. We were thrilled to recently donate nearly $300 to the Pink Up Mudgee committee.
As we farewell the year, we want to say a HUGE thank you to all our loyal clients.
We’re incredibly lucky to have continued to expand our customer base in 2023 and to have welcomed so many new faces, while also continuing to deliver for our long-time clients.
We know times are tough and many are facing rising interest rates and cost-of-living expenses. It makes us even more thankful to continue seeing so many wonderful clients in our clinic every day!
We’d also like to extend a huge thanks to all our training and product partners, our supporters across our social media and digital platforms, our PR agency Real Public Relations, and the Mudgee community, who continue to wholeheartedly get behind our initiatives and the clinic itself.
Wishing you all a safe and happy festive season - we can’t wait to see you in 2024!
Love Ange and the Beauty Reclaimed team
