About The Skin Hub

Untitled Design (30)

Formerly known as Pure Skin Clinic and a fixture in Geelong’s beauty and skin treatment scene for the better part of the past 12 years, owner Kelly Inglis has now re-branded to The Skin Hub and upgraded to a 300 square metre space on High Street, Belmont – triple the size of the previous space and double the amount of treatment rooms.

The brand-new space is Geelong’s newest, largest and most premium ‘hub’ for everything skin, wellness, health and beauty – offering the same services that have been available at Pure Skin Clinic now with a bigger, contemporary new fit-out.

Our team are dedicated to being transparent every step of the way – from pricing to explaining treatments, even those that seem quite daunting. We know there is nothing more personal than topics of body, skin and beauty, but our knowledgeable and relatable approach will ease clients through their personal journey.

“I take pride in only working with staff who are committed to their clients and are willing to not only achieve amazing results but empathise and understand clients’ needs.”Kelly.

In an industry that is extremely competitive and results-driven, our team are a breath of fresh air welcoming all clients with open arms; staying committed to continual education and achieving the results that are most important to them.

The Skin Hub is also a one-stop shop stocking leading brands for both beauty and clinical treatments such as DMK, BDR Medical Beauty and Regul8. All brands are clinically-tested, with proven results for our clients. We also stock products that assist in wellbeing and health, including sleep sprays and superfood blends from well-known brands such as The Salt Lab and The Goodnight Co.
