Scandinavian Skincare Systems
Gloucestershire-based Scandinavian Skincare Systems has been involved in the professional skincare market for the past 20 years. The company has first-hand experience in all areas of the market including skincare equipment & product design, manufacture & sales; consultancy; recruitment; training school management; and spa design & spa management.
In 1994 Scandinavian Skincare Systems was the first company in the world to develop skincare treatments which included cold-light fiber-optic Photodynamic Therapy (PDT). The company has now taken that technology to a new level with treatments for skin boosting; facial scarring; acne; cellulite; and fine lines. The latest version of the MÖ System has been designed for medical
practitioners and advanced aesthetics treatments. The MÖ System was designed by the company President and
founder Marianne Olavesen, and earned a nomination for the Cosmopolitan Women of Achievement Awards.
The company owns and manages its own advanced skincare aesthetics
training schools with options for students to study at the Scandinavian Skincare Academy in Gloucestershire, England, and two locations in southern Norway (Sandefjord and Grimstad).
The MÖ Aesthetic Clinic in Gloucestershire provides skincare, body-care and nutritional programs exclusively for private clients and often on a referral only basis. Client services are privacy assured.
The company's latest own-brand range is the MÖ Scandinavian Cosmeceuticals collection, which brings to the market high technology performance ingredients along with proven botanicals.
The company also owns and manages its own online skincare recruitment portal greatspajob.com.
