Celebrating Women Breaking the Bias Around the World

Celebrating Women Breaking the Bias Around the World

Every year on 8 March, International Women’s Day celebrates the achievement of women around the world.  This year’s theme is #BreakTheBias encouraging gender equality and creating an inclusive and diverse world.

This International Women's Day, we're celebrating the women of Laser Clinics. First up, we have Rochelle Collis. Devoted businesswoman, loving mother and all-round superstar, Rochelle is a Franchise Owner from Laser Clinics Bondi Junction.

Why do you think it’s important to celebrate International Women’s Day? 

Celebrating IWD for me, means acknowledging the work that many women have done to give us rights, equality, and freedom.

Which powerful woman do you admire most? 

Malala Yousafzai. My definition of powerful isn't wealth or position but someone who is strong enough to stand up for what is right. Malala at the age of 15 publicly spoke out on women's rights to education and nearly lost her life as a result.

What did you dream of doing when you were younger? 

Becoming a mother, cliché but true. I have two wonderful boys and nothing compares to the love I feel for them and the joy they have given me.

 

Next up, we have the incredible Dr. Nico Foley. With training in Surgery, Emergency and Internal Medicine, Dr. Foley is on the medical board for Laser Clinics.

Why do you think it’s important to celebrate International Women’s Day? 

For me, the value in celebrating IWD lies in visibility. While I think that the majority of us, both men and women, do care about and see the truth to gender-based inequity as a concept, having a day of recognition allows women a safe platform to speak about experiences that are unique to them.

Which powerful woman do you admire most? 

I actually admire any woman who I see rise above something difficult (and there are SO many of us). Small goals or large - we each face unique barriers, and if you've broken one of those barriers you are powerful in the extreme, and I admire you for that.

What does the idea of #BreakTheBias mean to you? 

If we're brave enough to lower our walls and look honestly at (or be shown) our own inherent bias then the hardest part is done - that's the break-in #BreakingTheBias. The rebuild is actually quite easy.

 

At Laser Clinics Australia, we celebrate all women and support their unique goals in life. With all the stereotypes and challenges women face, we understand that sometimes they need a little help in feeling confident in their own skin. We want to empower them and give them aesthetic solutions tailored to their goals. 

Here are some of our professional skin treatments to help boost your confidence:

Laser Hair Removal

If you’re tired of removing unwanted hair by shaving or waxing, which damages your skin, this permanent hair removal treatment provides a safer alternative. At Laser Clinics, we use medical-grade laser technology to get rid of unwanted hair effectively and is safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

This cost-effective skin treatment helps you to feel confident and enjoy freedom from your unwanted hair in the face, underarms, and other areas of your body.

Anti-wrinkle Injections

Wrinkles are a natural part of the skin ageing process. With age, the skin loses elasticity which causes fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. It’s definitely reasonable if you want to address these skin changes to maintain a youthful appearance. 

Our Anti-Wrinkle Injectables help reduce and prevent the formation of wrinkles. This non-invasive treatment relaxes the muscles and softens fine lines, reducing the visibility of wrinkles. 

Cosmetic Grade Peels

Every woman has unique goals and skin concerns they want to address, including age spots, freckles, large pores, acne scars, or other skin discolouration. Our professional Cosmetic Grade Peels provide safe chemical solutions to target these concerns. The peel penetrates into the layers of the skin that helps repair and polish your skin. 

Everyone, including women, have the freedom to choose the way they look and improve themselves. There’s nothing wrong if you want to boost your confidence by taking care of your skin and enhancing your appearance. At Laser Clinics Australia, we tailor a skin treatment plan based on your specific skin concerns and goals. Schedule an appointment today.
