First, gyms. Then, saunas. Now, skincare is the latest service to get the membership treatment. Late-2022 saw the launch of Fayshell, Australia's first membership-based skin clinic in Bondi Junction. A second clinic is due to open on Sydney's North Shore any day now.

Katelin Gregg and Ella James are behind the new beauty concept. After years of educating others on cosmetic enhancements and skincare via their podcast Cosmechix, the powerhouse duo are now channelling their knowledge into a bricks-and-mortar offering. The aim is to rebrand facials from a once-in-a-blue-moon treat to a regular step in a monthly self-care regime.

"Facials shouldn't be reserved for a big event or a luxury day spa. This was our inspo behind the brand. We wanted to bring facials into the every day, educating our clients about their skincare needs and offering a customised experience to ensure they put their best face forward," says James.

There are three membership tiers available, starting with the Basic Fayshell. For $169 per month, members will get one facial fully tailored to their skin concerns and goals. A dermal therapist will also help you craft an at-home routine, including skincare recommendations and nutrition advice. For $229, you'll also score unlimited LED light therapy sessions as well as more advanced treatments such as skin needling, hydrabrasion, herbal peels and chemical peels.

"The monthly treatments are like PT sessions; they push your skin hard to get lasting results. The LED members lounge is like the gym; the more you go, the better the results," says Gregg.

Not ready to commit just yet? A once-off facial will set you back $179, including skin consultation and an ongoing skincare plan, while a drop-in LED Light Therapy session is $59 a pop.
