Offering a service like no other, Qr8 by Dr Michele Squire has the power to change your skin for the better. A PHD-qualified scientist by trade, Squire helps women (and men!) navigate the tricky world of skin care by analysing her clients’ current regime, skin type and goals, and tweaking accordingly. If your skin is freaking out (and you don’t know why) or your expensive products aren’t giving you the results you were looking for, Squire can sort you out. Qr8’s Fortitude Valley space is clean and comfortable; Squire radiates warmth and immediately made us feel right at home. Prior to the appointment, we sent Squire a list of the products in our routine; during the consultation, she explained to us what was lurking in each individual formula and why some ingredients were working for us and some weren’t. Our favourite part? As Squire is independent of any brand, we know her advice is completely unbiased. Honest and trustworthy, if you’re overwhelmed by the skincare market (honestly, who isn’t?) Squire is the answer to your prayers. For those looking for support for skin conditions that can’t be treated over the counter, Dr Squire’s Qr8 MediSkin service offers customised prescription-only skin treatments for acne, sun damage, pigmentation and melasma, by connecting customers with doctors who specialise in skin care.
