TANYA CHiWAZA

Hi, I’m Tanya, the Director of Melbourne Cosmetic Specialists; I have over 18 years of nursing experience, with 6 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 went on to complete a Post-Graduate Degree in Dermal Science through the highly reputable Australasian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Science (AACDS); this then gave me certification as a Cosmetic Nurse Specialist; and I have never looked back. I stay current within the highly competitive Cosmetic Medicine industry by attending conferences, advanced technique workshops, and master-classes, to ensure I can give my clients the best possible outcomes. I aim to give clients natural and youthful results by restoring volume loss, creating symmetry, and balance.

GAYLE

Hi, I’m Gayle, I am the Dermal Clinician here at the clinic. You’ll be seeing me for all your skincare concerns and needs. I have been in the Wellness Health and Beauty industry for 9 years, which gave me extensive knowledge and experience within the industry. I jump started my interest within the massage and beauty sector, and specialising in sports massage and spa therapies. My passion led me to study a Bachelor of Health Science in which I then become a certified Dermal Clinician.

My most favourite treatment is Medifacials. They sound like a simple treatment but what makes it my favourite is that it is a layered treatment that can easily be tailored to each individual’s needs. It includes manual and chemical exfoliating components which smooth rough skin, it also brightens and hydrates the skin, and can treat active acne all in one treatment. I love that there is no down time and your skin has an immediate glow. Best part, your skin and body feels refreshed and rejuvenated with the bonus hand massage at the end!

RACHEL

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 between Melbourne Cosmetic and The Alfred Hospital as I still have a passion for both. 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 look forward to taking care of your aesthetic needs across the board of anti-wrinkle / dermal filler injections, as well as looking after your skin health with medi-facials.
