Deb Farnworth-Wood

Business Owner

Hello! I’m Deb and the owner of the Ultimate Skin & Body Clinic here in Cotlew St, Ashmore on the beautiful Gold Coast. 
In 2007 aged 44, I left the UK to move to Australia and I bought the original Australian Skin Clinic – which was located here in Cotlew Street. I had planned to retire, but got bored, got busy, and by 2011 had founded the Australian Skin Clinic Franchise which I grew to 60 clinics complete with an RTO training academy, and Skincare business - all of which I sold in 2019 . 

I did, however, keep this, my original Ashmore location.

My Ashmore clinic has always been very special and was always very different to the shopping centre style clinics that became the franchise model. Ashmore was (and still is) a one-stop medi-aesthetic practice offering one of the widest ranges of effective treatments available. 

My goal is to continue to provide the perfect combination of advanced, credible and ethical medi-aesthetic treatments with the highest possible standards of customer service and client care. 

This location is not in a busy shopping mall so it is perfect for those who would like a discrete and convenient location for their aesthetic treatments. We have lots of on-site parking and calm, relaxing environment away from prying eyes.

In June 2020 I purchased the mineral makeup brand Issada Cosmetics which was shortly followed by the launch of Issada Clinical Skincare. My son Jacques and I had been working on the new skincare range for two years and many of you would have trialled here it in the clinic too where we originally called it UltimateRX. Since then, we have developed many more formulas under the Issada brand.

Our skincare is manufactured in our own factory on the Gold Coast in Helensvale, while our Issada Mineral Makeup is sourced worldwide - mainly Europe and USA.  ISSADA is available through over 350 stockists in Australia, and internationally too. 
You can purchase Issada in the clinic, or online ​Here

Many of you will remember Judy from the "old days" before we franchised! Judy started here in this clinic and then moved to the ASC head office where she worked alongside Deb in a number of roles including system support. Judy retired from ASC in 2023 but was happy to come back to our clinic part time on the desk where she loves to interact with clients again.

​(Skin & Laser Specialist)

Gianna is our most recent addition to the team.
She is bright, bubbly and loves everything skin and laser. Gianna became a therapist because she knew first-hand what it is like to be an acne sufferer. Gianna has also been on the receiving end of poor advice for her own skin previously which resulted in making her condition worse not better. This has fuelled her passion for educating teenagers and adults with acne.

Gianna is trained in our advanced Microdermabrasion, Peels, Fractional RF, Acne Management and laser hair removal.  She is full time and has plenty of availability for after school appointments for acne sufferers.
