Cosmetic Nurse Specialist
Marilyn has been spent almost her entire career working with skin: from the late 1970’s the reconstructive side of plastic surgery was her focus, spending over seven years working in Burns ICU and Burn Rehabilitation and was then offered an opportunity to move into the cosmetic area when she was selected by Collagen Biomedical (the makers of the only injectable, cosmetic filler at the time), as the USA’s first Aesthetic Nurse Specialist. After working seven years with several San Francisco plastic surgeons, she and her husband sailed throughout the South Pacific, arriving in Sydney in 1992. She was given the privilege to introduce the role of Aesthetic Nurse Specialist to Australia, as the advanced technique trainer for Collagen Biomedical, training doctors and nurses throughout the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
Marilyn regularly attends educational conferences throughout the world and maintains membership with several international plastic surgery organisations.
Over the past 2 decades, Marilyn has witnessed and experienced the revolution that has taken place in non-surgical skin rejuvenation with the introduction of synthetically produced, bio- compatible products, as well as, the shift in focusing primarily on wrinkle-filling to sculpting and volumising. She knows one thing will never change and that is her attention to detail and aim to achieve natural-looking results.
