About Visible Changes

Visible Changes is an independently South Australian owned beauty clinic Adelaide and day spa, which prides itself on developing long term relationships with clients and assessing people’s individual needs.

At Visible Changes, you get your personal needs met, through proper assessment and well trained staff. This is unlike any other beauty and day spa in Adelaide, attracting Hollywood’s finest when they are in town.

We are a Friendly Local South Australian Owned and Operated Business. Not a franchise or part of a big chain offering the same treatments to everyone day in day out like a production line.

At Visible Changes we understand that “no two skins are alike” – like a finger print your skin or hair removal needs are different to everybody else, that’s why at Visible Changes we take an individual approach customizing treatment procedures or active cosmeceutical skin care products to the personal needs of each client therefore achieving a much more predictable outcome.

Visible Changes was created as the top beauty clinic Adelaide in response to today’s demand for innovative and effective skin care, hair removal and body wellness treatments, yielding maximum results in minimum time at a realistic price.

More than a beauty center, Visible Changes is a unique sanctuary for relaxation and indulgence. Our skin, health and body wellness treatments are not only designed to spoil and pamper, but to address specific concerns.

Teresa Russo:

Experience and talent like Teresa Russo’s is hard to come by.

As one of foremost beauty professionals in Adelaide, her many accolades, wealth of knowledge, and unparalleled understanding of your skin’s needs has positioned her as a bonafide, trusted skin specialist for more than 40 years.

Teresa has watched Adelaide’s beauty activity explode in the last four decades. She has been in the midst of the action, working at very first beauty salon in Adelaide, in Hindley Street at the very beginning. As a result, throughout her illustrious career, Teresa has emerged as one of the pillars of the city’s industry.

Getting her start in 1974 at the internationally acclaimed Madam Korner Beauty School, Teresa has been working in the industry since, building up an impressive portfolio of career experience. After studying beauty therapy and cosmetic chemistry, she worked in beauty salons for more than a decade as a practitioner, honing her skills in all aspects of beauty and aesthetic services – including management and training.

Her success in this environment meant that Teresa’s talents were recognised early on, and with close friend and mentor, Arturo Taverna, opened a beauty school to educate and transform Australia’s future professionals.

Here, she worked tirelessly as the Principal, designing and putting into practice the entire curriculum. The school was eventually acknowledged for its efforts and was certified as Adelaide’s first government-accredited beauty training institute. In 1987, after much campaigning, the school also earned Australia’s first international government accreditation with the UK’s International Therapy Examination Council.

In the late eighties, Teresa’s sought after skills also took her overseas to countries like Spain, Italy, England, and the United States. There she shared her wealth of knowledge through a number of beauty expos, mentoring seminars, conferences, teaching professionals all around the world how to run a successful beauty business.

1992 saw Teresa branch out and establish herself with the independently owned, Visible Changes beauty clinic Adelaide. Here she built an innovative and reliable business with loyal clients that still return to this day. Her efforts with Visible Changes beauty clinic Adelaide have seen it develop into one of the most trustworthy and beloved skincare and beauty clinics in Adelaide.

During this time Teresa also treated a number of high profile celebrities, as well as establishing herself as a dependable source in the media for publications such as The Australian, The Advertiser, Cleo and Cosmopolitan magazines. Additionally, with her knowledgeable and respected voice, she often liaised with lawyers for peer reports within the beauty industry in cases of disputed evidence.

However, one of the most significant developments since the founding of Visible Changes beauty salon Adelaide was the launch of her very own skincare line. This venture led Teresa to research and cultivate skincare products herself, collaborating with top labs, chemists formulators, and research scientists around the world.

There’s a reason why she doesn’t sell makeup though. Her personal beauty philosophy is to produce skin so flawless there is no need for it. Teresa prides herself on making you feel so confident and healthy you do not need to hide behind makeup.

As she considers her career path a labour of love more so than a job, she imbues this same passion to each and every client that walks through her doors. Always learning and educating herself, Teresa has not lost her hunger for knowledge and desire to be on the cutting edge of beauty innovation.

As a result, through her many distinguished beauty ventures, Teresa has well and truly earned the title of one of Australia’s most experienced and trusted beauty professionals in the business today. She is a true veteran and pioneer not just locally with the Visible Changes beauty salon Adelaide, but throughout the entire world.

Her results speak for themselves

 

Our Story

Tucked away in stylish Rundle Street in the heart of Adelaide, Visible Changes has established itself as one of the city’s leaders in beauty and non-surgical skin treatments. More than a beauty salon, Visible Changes is a unique sanctuary for relaxation and indulgence. Our skin, health, and body wellness treatments are not only designed to spoil and pamper, but to address specific skin concerns.

Visible Changes was created in response to today’s demand for innovative and effective skin care Adelaide, hair removal and body wellness treatments, yielding maximum results in minimum time – and most importantly – at a realistic price.

With the talented and experienced Teresa Russo at the helm, our clinic has grown significantly since its humble beginnings as a small suburban salon in Seaton. Outgrowing that premises within 18 months, we moved to a more accommodating space in Findon where the Clinic blossomed and branched out into locations in Adelaide Arcade and Flinders Street.

We take pride in the fact that when you choose Visible Changes you are receiving the highest quality treatment for your individual skin needs. We believe in building strong relationships with our clients and trust is vital to establishing these fruitful connections. As a client with Visible Changes, your skin, body, and soul’s objectives become our focus and reason for being.

This philosophy has carried Visible Changes through to our current CBD location in Rundle Street where we have been awarded many excellence accolades, and are often considered the benchmark of beauty services & skin care in Adelaide. Now branching off into more beauty and grooming services, the Clinic has incorporated specialised departments such as ShowOffs Lash & Brow Bar and Electric Beach Spray Tanning treatments on site.

Despite Visible Changes’ enormous amount of success, the choice was made not to franchise. Instead, maintaining our name as an innovative clinic with confidence in our individual approach to each client.

As the first beauty & skin care Adelaide clinic to offer transdermal electrolysis, skin peeling, laser hair removal, laser and eye peels, Visible Changes has always been at the forefront of cutting edge technology. Our commitment to ongoing staff training ensures the highest levels of professionalism, client comfort, hygiene, and excellence in all treatments offered. We provide unparalleled results utilising the latest innovative skin care, body wellness, and hair removal technology.

Positioning ourselves as leaders in the industry, Visible Changes is dedicated towards maintaining this pioneering legacy through their skin care Adelaide line as well. Visible Changes Cosmeceuticals is a result driven range that is proudly safe, effective, cruelty free, with no known carcinogens.

Each product is tailored and formulated with the correct dose of a specific ingredient for a particular role at a cellular level. They are not made with ingredients in name only. These products are tried and tested with proven, astonishing results.

Teresa’s wealth of knowledge and experience has greatly influenced the makeup of Visible Changes skincare range. Our focus is to give the client the best possible treatment and products on offer. The amount of client recommendations the clinic boasts is a testament to the customised and result-driven treatments Visible Changes provides. This makes us the top skin care Adelaide service providers.

Priding ourselves on being one of Adelaide’s most trusted and reputable clinics, Visible Changes is a beauty haven where staff are dedicated to nurturing your best possible self. With an intimate understanding that physical appearances are often deeply tied up with confidence and self-esteem, Visible Changes is passionate about your results and complete fulfilment with the experience.

With Visible Changes you truly are in capable and trustworthy hands.
