Customer Testimonials


My family and I have been going to Gillian’s studio for many years. The products and equipment are excellent, but the real treat is Gillian herself. Her warmth and friendliness is only topped by her expertise and knowledge. She simply knows what she is doing. Therefore every visit is like a mini holiday at a spa, very relaxing and my skin looks and feels great afterwards. In regards to my teenage boys, Gillian is a real life-saver for teenage skin problems.

I have been going to Gillian for all my beauty needs for years, and wouldn't go anywhere else. I recommend Gillian to everyone I know, not only for her great range of treatments, but for her experience and care. Despite having been in the industry for a long time, Gillian has lost none of her enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge. She is always aware of the latest developments available, and, more importantly, if they would be suitable for YOU. Gillian ensures that every treatment, from waxing to facials, massages, and make-up are completely specific to YOUR needs. Gillian is a very warm and caring person, and every visit is like catching up with a friend ... even a bikini wax!

I decided to start Caci treatment after the birth of my son in May 2011. As I was put on bed rest during my pregnancy, my skin stretched dramatically due to my 3 stone weight gain, resulting in many unsightly stretch marks. I had read about Caci being an effective non- evasive treatment for stretch marks and began my research. Hong Kong is notorious for untrained beauty therapists, claiming they are 'experts'. That is why I decided to go to Gillian. She is actually an International trainer in Caci, and travels around Asia teaching the correct methods, treatments, protocols and theory when using Caci. Caci needs to be administered by a professional, and Gillian is that person!

I initially had 8 sessions of Caci to kick- start the stretch mark removal and weight loss. Post-natally, I was very sluggish around the tummy, thigh and buttock area. After the third session, my skin felt tingly and the circulation was greatly improved, my cellulite also looked better! By the last session my stretch marks had faded and I did lose 2-3 inches around the waist and my legs and buttocks were notably toned. I now have monthly maintenance sessions and this helps maintain the results.  My husband has really noticed the difference in my stretchmarks and this has made me feel more confident. Give Caci a go - you won't regret it!

I have been going to Gillian for facial treatments for many years because she has good hands. Hands that nourish and nurture, rejuvenate and revitalise. On top of that, her great experience in the beauty industry means that she chooses and uses great products that really work. I always leave her salon feeling twice the woman I was when I arrived!

I have been coming to Gillian for facials for over 10 years now. Gillian understands well what my skin needs and will customize her treatment so I get the best of her facials each time.  With the many beauty salons and spas in Hong Kong, we’re spoilt for choice but I like to go to Gillian because she’s a dedicated professional who genuinely cares for her clients. When asked, I am always happy to recommend Gillian to my friends as I know we can trust her with our skin care needs. Gillian always uses top quality spa products and treatments.

I have used the services of Gillian at The Skin Therapy Centre for over 10 years and have found Gillian Elsworth's approach to skincare and holistic treatments meet all my needs. Gillian’s many years of experience speaks for itself. I know I am in safe, capable hands with Gillian. Gillian does not just perform treatments. She has a “bedside manner“ that not many come close to in this profession. Gillian’s gentle, kind and positive character and energy radiates from her, making the experience and treatment very special indeed. Gillian works closely with me to achieve what I want out of the treatments and I‘m very happy with the results. I always leave her clinic feeling calm and uplifted. I am pleased that there is a therapist of Gillian’s caliber in Discovery Bay, close to home offering treatments to meet anyone’s needs. I would happily recommend Gillian Elsworth and The Skin Therapy Centre to anyone wanting professional skincare, beauty treatments, services and such a beautiful experience.

Pauline Reid, Discovery Bay

I have had great success with the treatments with Gillian at The Skin Therapy Centre and have found it to be a very professional and relaxing environment. I started with a facial and was very impressed with the efficient service and getting to know the owner Gillian. Gillian has made this a wonderful experience with her gentle personality and professionalism. I started with the 10 session Caci Ultimate treatment and have found outstanding results from them. I had wanted a treatment that was not invasive in the anti-aging area and found that the Caci Ultimate treatments were exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend this service to anyone who is looking to achieve a brighter more youthful glow in their complexion for a truly younger firmer looking you with less wrinkles. I look forward to trying many more of the services Gillian offers at The Skin Therapy Centre.

The minute I settle into Gillian's salon I start to relax. The cares and worries of the day just slip away as she deftly carries out my treatments. The results are always visible; indeed my friends often comment on the brightness & smoothness of my complexion after a facial at The Skin Therapy Centre. I shall certainly continue to visit Gillian for the overall wellness, relaxation and sensational results she achieves and great quality products and services she has.


Gillian is very professional in her business and her service is excellent. I have been with her for at least 8-10 years and she has always been caring and thorough in her work. She chooses good top quality products for her treatments and is very experienced in her field. I always leave feeling relaxed, pampered and well taken care of and look forward to my next visit! And my skin looks great too!


The facials at The Skin Therapy Centre are fantastic!  I’ve been getting them for six months and have seen a huge improvement in my skin. Gillian is friendly and very skilled, and the atmosphere is extremely relaxing. Love the neck and shoulder massage! When I leave, I feel pampered, my face is glowing, and I know I’ve just done something good for myself.

Stacey Rule

My visits to Gillian at The Skin Therapy Centre are something that I really look forward to. The atmosphere is relaxed, comfortable and very friendly. She is highly trained and professional and I am extremely happy and delighted with the results of my treatments with her. The CACI Ultimate has made my skin more youthful, firmer and my lines have definitely become softer and less noticeable. It gives me a boost knowing that I can continue these treatments with her. I would highly recommend Gillian, she is someone that I trust to help look after my skin.

Maggie, Hong Kong

Gillian is truly a Master in her craft. I’ve tried many high end spas in Hong Kong and they were expensive, cold, formal and did not really meet my standards or skincare needs. Gillian is fabulous with a wonderful array of professional treatments and products and always gives amazing service. Her range of beauty services and products make her the best in HK. My skin looks great, I look years younger. Botox NEVER! Gillian is the key to my youthful looking skin.

Martha, Discovery Bay

I've been visiting Gillian for years now and have always resisted trying the Caci Ultimate treatments. That all changed though, when it seemed that every time I looked in the mirror my face seemed to be sliding more and more down towards my knees! Now I get regular treatments and am thrilled to say that my face looks much tighter and my skin glows. I'd definitely recommend Caci and indeed any of the treatments offered under Gillian's excellent hands.

Susan, Discovery Bay

My treatments with Gillian really transport me to another planet whilst under her expert healing hands. It is such a relaxing and amazing experience having treatments in Gillian's sanctuary at The Skin Therapy Centre. I always leave feeling wonderfully uplifted, relaxed and refreshed and my skin always looks and feels amazing too, with the Guinot Hydradermie facial treatment having such amazing long lasting results and affects on my skin.

Carol, Discovery Bay


I love to have treatments from Gillian because she is a warm friendly person and my skin looks better than ever before. She recommended me the CACI face treatment which soften lines and wrinkles. Just after three appointments I could see the difference, my skin looked a lot more firm and smooth. If you do regularly it lasts. I was very surprised that it works so well and quickly. I am 48 and look for sure younger than that. Also the facials for deep cleaning and Gillian's wonderful massage makes me feel and look a lot better. I use the recommended Skeyndor products which are very helpful with lots of natural ingredients. It's always a pleasure to see Gillian and enjoy her treatments.

Claudia, Discovery Bay

I've been a client of the Skin Therapy Centre in Discovery Bay for seven years.  I can honestly say I have always received exceptional service and value, my treatments  being conducted in a professional and caring manner.  I am always made to feel nurtured and special . Gillian approaches beauty therapy in an exciting, yet holistic fashion, keeping abreast of an ever changing market. This is evident in her up to the minute menu of facial treatments and her products that have been personally researched and used by her before being selected for her clients. 

I have full confidence in the knowledge of Gillian's excellent qualifications and experience.  She always strives to be attentive and ensures  that I always leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and fully advised of the treatments and products I have received.   Her salon is more like a serene sanctuary, relaxed and friendly and I have more often than not fallen asleep during one of her amazing facial massages. Thanks Gillian!
