Meet The Team


Director /


Hi, I’m Tanya, the Director of Melbourne Cosmetic Specialists; I have over 20 years of nursing experience, with 8 of those specialising in Cosmetic Medicine. I have worked in various sectors of the healthcare industry including acute hospitals, day procedure, and outpatients’ recovery. I have worn the hat of Nurse In Charge in an extremely busy medical clinic; having worked alongside doctors who specialise in skin cancer checks and skin health, this was the seed that developed my interest in dermatology/skin health and cosmetic medicine. I then completed a Post-Graduate Degree in Dermal Science through the highly reputable Australasian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Science (AACDS).

My passion is Beautification. Beautification is more than just plumping lips and cheeks; it is providing a whole treatment approach by harmonising and bringing balance to the face by assessing facial thirds and balancing the side profile; it is about chasing shadows and reflecting light that only an artistic and experienced eye can see. 

 I aim to give clients natural and youthful results by restoring volume loss, creating symmetry, and balance. Everyone has a signature feature that makes them look appealing, it is my job to make it stand out.

Cosmetic Injector /
Dermal Therapies


Hi, I’m Rachel, and I am a Registered Nurse and an experienced Cosmetic Injector with a Post Graduate in Dermal Science / Cosmetic Nursing (that’s where I met Tanya during our training). I have over 20 years of nursing backbone, having worked in various sectors of the healthcare industry. I continue to juggle working as a cosmetic injector and mum life 🙂

Having struggled with acne in my teens, I can understand the devastating impact skin conditions can cause to ones self esteem. That’s where I got my love for aesthetics as even the smallest amount of work can give big results, as well as making a difference in how it can make a client feel better about themselves. I like taking the natural approach with subtle changes by adding a little lip filler, a touch of cheek filler and a twinkle of anti-wrinkle injections to give my clients a refreshing and vibrant natural look.

I look forward to taking care of your aesthetic needs across the board of anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections, as well as looking after your skin health with medifacials and skin needling.

Dermal Clinician
(currently on maternity leave)


Hi, my name is Nilam and I am a qualified Dermal Clinician. My journey and fascination with skin health began back in 2009 when I began in beauty therapy. After completing my diploma I decided to further my studies into Bachelor of Health Science which extensively broadened my knowledge and experience in the field. Now with over 12 years of experience, I must say that my favourite part of being in this industry is meeting clients who are beginning their skin journey and to follow them through the entire process to achieving their skin goals. It can make such an impact in an individuals self confidence and happiness.

If I had to choose one treatment, I absolutely love skin needling! I have seen significant results and best of all, there is minimal down time required. The treatment stimulates collagen and ultimately can help treat concerns such as fine lines, acne scarring and enlarged pores (just to name a few). 

If you are looking for answers to your questions or even wondering where to start, a consultation may be the key to achieving healthy glowing skin. I look forward to seeing you at the clinic once I am back from maternity leave in mid 2023.
