Michelle, Australia’s first Cosmetic Nurse Practitioner, has been using her clinical expertise to provide cosmetic, non-surgical treatments since 2005.
Michelle started her career as a registered nurse in the Royal Children’s Hospital, where she worked for 2 years. Michelle loves to travel and it was while living overseas she first became interested in cosmetic rejuvenation undergoing extensive training and beginning work as a cosmetic nurse with the Harley Medical Group (Dublin) in early 2005. Michelle returned home to Melbourne in 2007 and began working with Anti-Aging Cosmetic & Laser.
After completing her Masters in Nurse Practice/Practitioner and undergoing a thorough vetting process by AHPRA – involving the provision of evidence to demonstrate advanced practice, Michelle attained endorsement as Australia’s first Cosmetic Nurse Practitioner in February 2013.
Valuing the importance of ongoing education Michelle both regularly attends conferences and participates in ongoing training. Michelle feels that continually upskilling her techniques and staying abreast of new treatments available is imperative to both maintaining and extending best practice.
Michelle loves the perfect mix of artistry and science her job provides and prides herself on delivering results that are both precise and remarkable. Crucial to achieving this is understanding how each client is individual with unique concerns and assets, and considering these when developing a treatment plan that will work for them.
Michelle feels the ultimate compliment a client can receive after having treatment is “You’re looking really well!” rather than “what have you had done?”
