In a year that has been challenging for most salon owners, Isabella Lonergan, founder of The Dermal Diary, has bucked the trend, by opening a new, larger clinic.

Taking up residence in a renovated Victorian style terrace on Ridge Street in North Sydney, and decked out in The Dermal Diary’s signature white and navy throughout the building, the new space features four treatment rooms, one of which is dedicated to ‘Healite treatments’. Healite is a clinically proven LED technology that stimulates collagen and elastin, reduces redness, and treats skin conditions like acne and rosacea.

With plush navy velvet chairs and luxury treatment beds plus vintage mirrors and artwork in each room, the new bigger location means The Dermal Diary team has recently expanded to bring on three additional therapists to keep up with the demand. 

Isabella said: “After what’s been a challenging year for the entire skincare industry, we are so thrilled to have arrived at this point where we can move into a bigger space and bring on new therapists. I can’t wait to welcome our clients to the new space so they can experience it for themselves.”

Isabella’s The Dermal Diary has bucked the trend of 2020.

Isabella is one of Australia’s most experienced skin therapists offering expert acne, rosacea, pigmentation plus cosmetic and anti-ageing treatments. She qualified with internationally renowned expert, Yakov Gerschovich in Paris in Advanced Facial Sculpture Massage, and the Buccal Massage, which features in The Intrinsic Facial Experience at The Dermal Diary, and is also a favourite of Meghan Markles. Isabella is the only therapist in Australia qualified in this technique.

Isabella has made beautiful complexions her business, building a solid reputation in the cosmeceutical, beauty and dermatology industries, as well as the plastic surgery industry both in Australia and overseas. Her 13 years across all industries is evident in the results she provides.
