The awards took place virtually with Ultraceuticals creator and founder, Dr Geoffrey Heber announcing the award at their virtual conference with Irish brand distributors, Renaissance Products.

‘It is an honour to have my work recognised by such an inspirational and renowned industry expert such as Dr Herber, this is particularly special for me as it is the first award I have received personally. Elysium has received multiple awards so this award from Ultraceuticals is of significant importance to me from such a highly regarded industry leader. At a time that we are all being challenged within the business community, it is wonderful to have my work and expertise acknowledged’ said Valerie.

With more than 25 years’ experience in advance aesthetic skincare, Valerie opened her first salon, Elysium Day Spa and Laser Clinic in Moycullen in 2003 offering both luxurious and high performing professional services and while Elysium continues to thrive, Valerie now operates her own Advanced Skincare Clinic out of Elysium specialising in an array of medical grade prescriptive skin treatments and home-care programs.  This award is a significant stamp of approval for Valerie’s world class proficiency within the skincare industry and a real coupe for Galway.

Whether it is persistent skin problems: acne, rosacea, concerns about ageing and laxity, pigmentation, scaring or you just want overall improved clarity; pre- wedding or event. All budgets, time constraints and lifestyles will be taken into consideration when devising a be-spoke plan.
