Addesso, meaning ‘now’ in Italian, is a sanctuary where you’ll find experts in skincare, massage and cosmetic injectables working in harmony.
A boutique clinic located in Mooney street, Addesso opened its doors on 25 September 2017. The space is filled with light but has an intimacy clients enjoy and the décor is warm and inviting, creating a sanctuary to unwind in.
Founded by Dermal Therapist Judy Oats, Addesso soon grew to become a joint venture when two of her good friends joined her at the premises — Susan Edge from Serenity Skin Body Massage and Ronnie Woodward from Indigo Injectables.
Judy first met Sue when she received a gift voucher to see her for a massage.
“It was the best gift I’ve ever been given,” Judy says.
“Sue is an amazing masseuse and a wonderful human being — so kind and giving. I asked her to sublease one of the rooms and, to my delight, she jumped on board. My little Addesso was growing.
“Sue was there during the fit-out and friends who can flat-pack together know it’s a friendship that will last forever! We support each other. It’s never easy opening a business and Sue’s support has been invaluable to me.”
Judy met Ronnie eight years ago when she was treating his skin. Likewise with Sue, the two hit it off straight away and kept in contact.
“I felt like Addesso was the only place I wanted to be because we share so many values including treating clients with the upmost respect and not bamboozling them with industry speak or specials,” Ronnie says.
“Simplicity in everything I do is the goal at Indigo Injectables. I advocate small ‘tweakments’ and honour people’s privacy.
“I feel privileged to be part of Judy’s vision for Addesso.”
The Addesso brand continues to grow with the recent addition of Lynda Mullamphy, who offers Emmett Technique massage therapy.
Committed to helping clients resolve issues without using products or treatments that are synthetic, the Addesso team works with botanicals, omega oils, and active and vitamin-rich products that are backed by science and proven to be safe.
“We respect each other’s industries and work in harmony to help each person feel and look their best,” Judy says.
Judy offers a wide range of skincare treatments, from acne to anti-ageing solutions, and has equipped the clinic with the latest medical-grade equipment.
“With my experience in the industry, I know what gets results for clients and I’m passionate about creating the best outcomes,” Judy says.
“The results I’m now seeing for acne clients are outstanding. I created a specific treatment using the Clinical Light, which reduces inflammation and calms the skin.
“I truly care for each and every one of my clients and I love what I do — it’s not work to me, it’s part of who I am.
“I think what we do best in our different industries is to recognise that there’s no ‘one solution fits all’ approach. We love how we all complement one another and how, together, we create a one-stop destination for our clients.”
