Koko Medi-Spa – Soothing, Science-Backed Skincare Solutions
It’s an unfortunate truth that much of the skincare industry is based on pseudoscience, inflated claims, and fancy marketing designed to give the illusion of results, rather than actually serving clients. Kemi Omisakin, founder of Koko Medi-Spa, is out to change that.
In her 10 years as a registered nurse, Omisakin has learned all about managing client expectations and serving their skincare needs not based on wishful thinking, but on actual proven ingredients. She prides herself on working with clients and helping them set realistic expectations for her outstanding treatments. In pursuit of this mission, she offers results-driven skincare backed by her professional expertise.
Koko Medi-Spa uses a variety of treatments from high-end product lines like Image Skincare, Skinpen, and Dr. Schrammek. By using serious products with serious ingredients, Omisakin formulates skin treatments based on clinical expertise, not pseudoscience or gimmicks.
Instead of relying on flashy marketing and aspirational stock photos to sell services, the Medi-Spa’s convenient online treatment menu provides clear information about what each treatment has to offer, who it’s suitable for, and exactly what clients can expect from each booking. Their offerings include a variety of medical-grade facials, spot treatments, derma fillers, green peels, micro-needling, extractions, and more.
And for clients who are new to skincare or who aren’t sure what they need, Koko Medi-Spa offers 20-minute virtual consultations, where they can talk to Omisakin about their skin concerns and find out what treatment plan will best serve their needs.
These aren’t run-of-the-mill, one-size-fits-all facials. Their signature Koko acne mask treatment is a multi-step process that includes ALA and eucalyptus oil, a spot-diminishing anti-acne jelly mask, salicylic acid spot treatment, and green tea, mallow, and manuka to nourish the skin, building resiliency and helping to maintain lasting balance.
The best part? While many skincare companies have little expertise in darker skin complexions, Koko Medi-Spa specializes in catering to darker-skinned clients. This means anyone can trust Kemi Omisakin with their skin!
In their own words:
I’ve always had a passion for skincare. Looking after my own skin has always been important to me and I wanted to share my tips and tricks with others.
I’ve been a registered nurse for the last 10 years. My nursing background is in dermatology, surgery, and sexual health.
What makes you stand out?
I believe my business is unique because I truly understand how skin works. I also make a point to be honest with my clients, helping them set realistic expectations of their skin treatments.
I also specialize in darker skin tones, which is unique. Many skin specialists in the UK don’t have extensive experience working with darker complexions!
What challenges, if any, have you overcome?
COVID-19. I started my business just before the first lockdown, so I have had to stop giving treatments for months at a time. However, this hasn’t stopped me from growing my business and serving my clients.
