Adele - Registered Nurse & Skin Care Educator

I have been an advanced skin therapist for over 12 years my passion is getting skin to function healthy and getting it to look the best it can whether it be with skincare or treatment modalities such as IPL and Laser technology. Of those 12 years I have managed numerous clinics and provided training around skin conditions and skincare, I especially love to work with skin conditions such as Melasma, Rosacea and general anti-ageing. I completed my nursing degree 3 years ago so that I could develop further in appearance medicine which I feel with the combination of good consistent skincare you get a much more youthful, natural overall appearance. As an individual you’ll know the condition of your skin takes a lead role in determining your self-confidence.
