At Saskia’s Nail and Beauty Bar we take pride in providing a personal and professional beauty salon experience using only the best quality products.
We can offer a customised skin package tailored just for your skin. This is perfect for problematic skin such as sun damage, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring (6-week course), or to rejuvenate weathered skin to make it fresher and younger looking.
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, safe and gentle procedure that deeply exfoliates and polishes the skin to stimulate new cell growth. Using a gentle vacuuming system and diamond tips, microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores.
Sonophoresis is a relaxing, non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasonic (soundwave) technology, warmth, and motion energy. Treatment products applied following sonophoresis are absorbed up to 800 times deeper into the skin.
It is suitable for all skin types and delivers excellent results.
Microdermabrasion and sonophoresis combined medi-facials are an effective treatment for:
A Microplus+ medi-facial treatment can take from 45 minutes up to 90 minutes, depending on your skin condition and the area being treated.
Your skin will feel refreshed, smoother, and cleaner after just one treatment. To gain the maximum benefits, a course of six treatments at two weekly intervals is recommended. Your skin care professional will discuss with you the most suitable treatment program for your skin.
Hot wax is spread thickly onto the skin and allowed to dry slightly before its gently peeled away. The benefits include fewer in-grown hairs, less breakage and therefore longer re-growth periods. The wax also promotes the skin hydration and is highly recommended for sensitive areas. Strip wax is recommended for thicker/less sensitive skin, for example legs, arms, back, chest and shoulders. A thin layer of wax is applied to the skin and is then removed using a paper strip. We also offer organic strip wax ‘Sugar waxing’.
Our hot wax can grab hairs as short as 1mm in length. Our strip wax can remover hair as short as 2mm. Everyone has different growth cycle but we are generally able to wax areas that have been shaved 7-10 days earlier. However, with larger parts of the body like arms/legs, we suggest leaving it 3 weeks before waxing it. Clients that have not wax or shaved for a long period of time need not worry as our therapists will trim the hair to a suitable length for waxing.
To keep the waxed area clean and avoid heat & friction during the next 24 hours. This means:
Basic bikini – Hair is removed from the top and the sides of the bikini area. G String – Same as bikini, however the top can be taken slightly higher with more hair removed underneath following the line of a G-string. Brazilian – Removes all of the hair from underneath and leaves only a strip, thumb print or small triangle of hair at the front or All off. Hair is also completely removed from in between the buttocks.
You will be required to remove your underwear for Brazilian waxing. Disposable paper underwear is provided for basic bikini and G-string – or you can wear your own if you prefer.
Every person has a different pain threshold and experiences waxing differently, however if you maintain your waxing regularly, most find it easier as the hairs become thinner, lighter and sparse after a few treatments. If your pain threshold is particularly low, a couple of Nurofen tablets half an hour prior to treatment tends to reduce pain.
You may notice a small amount of growth after a week or so. It can take up to four treatments for your hair to get into a growth cycle that gives best results. We recommend waxing every 4 weeks to maintain your smooth appearance.
I have been a nail client of Saskia’s for nearly 5 years. I was impressed with her work right from the start. Her Nail art is amazing, I love to Bling it up or go for something “different to the rest” and Saskia never disappoints 🙂 Her training and attention to detail shine through in every set of nails, and I just love ALL the compliments. While she is amazing with her designs she also welcomes ideas from her clients and has quite often designed Nail art specific to an event or occasion I have to attend. Saskia is friendly and professional and we always have a good laugh while she creates her amazing nails!!!!! I have no hesitation in recommending Saskia to anyone who is looking for a great nail tech.

I have so many complements on my nails and the fantastic colours and quality. Thanks Saskia. You are so good at what you do and would highly recommend you to anyone wanting a professional and personal service.
I first visited Saskia in 2002 with a severely torn and painful nail pleading desperately for her to help me. With a smile and a nod she sat me down and carefully and very gently gave me my first ever set of nails. Many years have passed since then, and over time and various changes of locations I have continued to follow her wherever she goes.
With a great eye for detail and extraordinary flair for nail art Saskia never ceases to amaze me with her talents. Whether I have a specific design in mind, or turn up feeling indecisive with no idea what I want, Saskia’s patience prevails and I always walk out with an amazing set of nails that not only look fabulous but more importantly stay on.
I highly recommend Saskia to anyone looking for quality when it comes to nails and beauty, she has impeccable standards, premium products and provides a warm and welcoming environment. What more could you want!
The nails that Saskia is doing are the best nails i have ever had done. If its fabulous, glitzy and glamourous, or natural looking nails you are after then I can thoroughly recommend Saskia! I am always, everywhere complimented on my fabulous nails!!
Saskia is also taking care of my face. I leave her salon with smooth, soft, and blemish free skin. It is always wonderful experience with Saskias caring gentle touch. So if you are looking for highly professional, friendly, excellent in her job, technician, then Saskia is one for you.
Hi My Name is Eileen Pearson I have been seeing Saskia at the salon for 4 years. I had just had a call from the lady that was to do my nails for my wedding telling me that she was unable to make the appointment. Horrified I thought I would see if I could get in at Saskia’s Nail and Beauty as my wedding was the next day. Saskia was very busy but said she would fit me in I was so relieved and we started from scratch took off the old nails and replaced them with beautiful shaped and filed to perfection in the colour I wanted for my special day. Since that day I have attended the salon every two weeks which is 4 years this year. Saskia is a very professional operator keeping up with all the latest happenings around the industry. I have been the practice model on a number of occasions and have laughed and enjoyed the journey with Saskia. My experience with Saskia has been wonderful and I could not find fault in anything that is offered in the salon. With Highly clean premises and great atmosphere it is a pleasure to go there every 2nd Saturday I enjoy my chill out time.
I recommend Saskia very highly to anyone and know that they would have the best service.
