Prue is a Registered Nurse who developed a passion for the aesthetic industry when she worked part time in her family salon in Bendigo. Whilst studying her Bachelor of nursing she also studied her diploma of beauty therapy. She did this to give her an edge that many nurses don’t have. With an aesthetic eye for attention to detail Prue performs many treatments within our extensive treatment menu.
Prue’s passion for the industry began at the age of 16 when she suffered from skin problems herself. Through much research and commitment to her own skin and working at a hair and beauty salon she learnt this was her passion, to help others achieve their goals towards self-confidence.
Prue has worked closely with Dr Sally Shaw in both skin cancer medicine and cosmetic medicine for a number of years.
Prue has been doing cosmetic injectables for almost 5 years and has multiple certificates in a variety of cosmetic products and procedures. She is continually improving her skills by attending conferences all over Australia. Prue specialises in all forms of injectables including anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy.

“I feel we are firstly; passionate about what we do, we are professional & knowledgeable, extremely approachable and up to date with treatments and products. We care about and listen to our clients concerns without judgement. Clients often comment that we don’t put pressure on them to buy products or to have a multitude of unnecessary treatments.
Our actual location adds to our charm; as you enter the grounds one instantly feels welcomed. This reflects on who we are and what we stand for. Prue and I work well together, support and complement each other, which I feel is evident in our work and our ethics”.
