Australian Skin Clinics named Fastest Growing Beauty Franchise in Australia


Leading Australian medi-aesthetic franchise, Australian Skin Clinics, has been named the fastest growing beauty franchise in Australia, placing 7th on the 2015 BRW Fast Starters list.

The BRW Fast Starters list ranks Australia’s fastest growing, public and private, small and medium start-up businesses that present solid business practices required to deliver exceptional growth.

Founded on the Gold Coast in 2011, Australian Skin Clinics is one of Australia’s original laser and skin rejuvenation clinics and has risen to become one of Australia’s fastest growing franchises, last year enjoying a 78 per cent growth and revenue of more than $25.5 million.

Australian Skin Clinics Managing Director, Deb Farnworth-Wood, said the company has achieved rapid expansion due to its successful business model and growing consumer demand for its services.

“I’ve learnt that owning a successful business isn’t necessarily about being the first, it’s about being the best. The best at what you do,” said Ms Farnworth-Wood.

“I saw an opportunity to change the way consumers experienced and viewed the cosmetic industry and set out to make that a reality. Our forward thinking mentality and organisational culture of innovation and excellence has allowed us to do just that and has seen the company grow rapidly since opening our first franchise clinic just four years ago.”

Australian Skin Clinics offers a range of results-driven cosmetic treatments to suit a wide spectrum of customer both in age and gender.

“Our vision has, and always will be, to make our customer’s look and feel fantastic about themselves. We do this by offering affordable, accessible and effective cosmetic treatments in beautiful, high quality facilities, delivered by experienced, qualified and highly trained team members,” said Ms Farnworth-Wood.

Training is one of the unique selling points of Australian Skin Clinics. Founded in Queensland, the company commenced operation in one of the most highly regulated states for laser licensing in Australia. As such, the company made a commitment to developing standards that aimed to exceed these requirements, setting the benchmark in the industry. Despite other states, including Victoria and New South Wales having no licensing regulations, Australian Skin Clinics enforces its training standards and protocols across all states to ensure consistent and high quality service is delivered across the brand.

Farnworth-Wood said the future looked promising for the Australian medi-aesthetic franchise.

“It will never be fashionable to have bad skin or look old, so the future is bright,” said Ms Farnworth-Wood.

“We have an aggressive roll out target, with new clinics planned throughout 2015 and 2016 – watch this space.”
