Hi and welcome,
My name is Andrew Thompson. I own and operate Reef Studios based in Rockhampton, Queensland. I've been working on bodies for three decades and opened the Rocky clinic in 2010.
Reef is not your typical beauty salon. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that it isn't one. I'm not interested in providing common beauty treatments.
By design, the treatments I perform are specialised. I only do the type of treatments that I excel in and enjoy.
The lion's share of what I do is Hair Removal, and chances are you've come here to compare me with the other kids on the block.
Nowadays it seems that every place is offering Hair Removal, so how do you decide where to go?
Well, here are five huge differences that separate Reef from every other clinic in Queensland.
1. I freeze your hair removal price FOREVER!
That's right, forever, until the end of time, and yes that includes monthly specials. If you have your first Hair Removal session when a treatment area is on special, that price is locked in. You never have to worry about price increases. You will receive that special price forever.
2. Reef Studios is a dedicated Hair Removal Clinic
Reef is not a beauty salon, and I have no wish for it to be. I wouldn't know a manicure if I tripped over one, and that's just how I like it.
Instead, Reef is a specialty clinic devoted to removing unwanted body hair, be it facial, body, or genital hair.
90% of what I do is Hair Removal and Waxing, and that makes Reef unique.
In fact, no other place in Queensland offers the same select range of services as Reef, nor has the experience, reputation, and client education systems that we have in place.
The fact that Reef specialises in hair removal, and that it's survived for nearly two decades, means that we must be doing it well.
3. Reef Studios is a truly unisex studio
Every service that is available to women, is available to men as well.
That's because I know men's hair, and I know how hard it is for guys to actually admit they want a treatment.
At Reef, you don't need to worry about such things. Men's hair removal is one of the core specialties here and always will be.
I pioneered male body waxing and hair removal in Queensland when no other studio would touch it. Even today, no one else comes close to my expertise or range of male services on offer.
Women love Reef too, preferring the down-to-earth, non-judgemental service that I provide to the pretentious fluff and puff of a salon.
4. Reef Studios is owner-operated
Reef is not franchised or part of some big anonymous chain. I own the store and I perform the treatments, so it's my reputation on the line every time a client comes in for a treatment.
For you, that means that your therapist actually cares about your outcome. You won't be paying some unseen business owner to handball your treatment to whichever staff member happens to be rostered on that day.
Nor will your treatment be performed by someone with a two-day laser certificate and little experience in the field. Instead, I will be with you from start to end.
As for myself, in the past 23 years, I have performed well over 200,000 treatments and am one of the most experienced therapists - arguably the most experienced - in Australia.
I'm committed to providing the best possible value and results to my clients. Using state of the art PTF Pulsed Light Technology, and top quality waxes by Mancine, Depileve, and Caron, my reputation for Hair Removal is second to none.
5. Reef has serious Hair Removal credentials
In the pages on this site, you will find many FAQ sections to answer your questions, dispel myths, and inform you fully about the treatment you are considering.
These are real FAQ sections written by me, not just something copied from a manufacturer's handbook.
In addition to that, you will also find extended articles that I've written on Hair Removal, plus many other human science modalities in which I am or have been involved.
All of this information comes together to form one of the largest information libraries on Hair Removal in the world. Yes, really.
So that's the big spiel. No tricks, no traps, just plain old-fashioned service, quality, and value.
Please don't hesitate to call or use the handy online form on the contacts page.
Have a brilliant day,
