Our Team

About Our Founder – Dr. Maria Comyns


Dr. Maria Comyns (MBBS DCH), completed her medical training at the University of New South Wales and has rekindled her love of all things beautiful within cosmetic medicine. She has trained with Derma Medical, Australian Skin Therapies, Alocuro, and Merz Institute Australia. As a Cosmetic Doctor, she enjoys matching medical injections with natural alternatives such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for skin rejuvenation or hair loss.

Her love of all things beauty and wellness has allowed her to follow her passion into adding therapies such as thread lifts and Vitamin infusion.

Her areas of expertise within cosmetic medicine are achieving a balanced aesthetic finish for facial volume loss and Platelet Rich Plasma injections for evidence-based skin rejuvenation. Dr. Maria prides herself on achieving a subtle and natural-looking finish. This can require subtle structural support due to the signs of aging, which is why a full facial assessment is required.

Her calming tone and caring nature make these potentially confronting treatments, one of ease and enjoyment. She will leave you feeling listened to and satisfied.

Dr. Katie Thomson


Katie has joined the area of aesthetic medicine after a long and varied career in hospital-based medicine, she has over 12 years of clinical experience including working in general and emergency medicine.


 As a self-confessed skincare junkie, this field really is a natural progression. Katie is a firm believer that everyone deserves great skin and is passionate about assisting and empowering clients to look like the best version of themselves through subtle and natural enhancements.


Katie’s favourite treatment to carry out is platelet rich plasma injections (or PRP for short!). This involves extracting those lovely cells from your own blood called platelets and re-injecting them into the areas that need a little help and rejuvenation, stimulating the elastin and collagen production. Pretty amazing!
