At SILK, our Aesthetic Nurses offer comprehensive facial assessments. Learning advanced techniques and best practices from industry leaders, our Aesthetic Nurses thrive on the challenge and reward that comes with their role at SILK.  

Our supportive Medical Team are responsible for establishing policies and procedures, complying with state legislations, and implementing health and safety standards across every clinic in Australia. Following the medical team’s lead, our Aesthetic Nurses provide comprehensive consultations tailored to individual concerns. 

Here’s part 2 of our chat with Nurse Leah, Aesthetic Nurse at SILK Midland Gate and Bunbury clinics WA where we discuss the art of Cosmetic Aesthetics!

Head over to part 1 to for Leah’s take on Aesthetic nursing and professional development at SILK.

Hi again, Leah! What Cosmetic Aesthetic consultations do you offer at SILK?
The most popular, and often the first consultation for clients, is for the concern of lines and wrinkles as well as loss of volume to the mid and lower face. We offer a variety of treatments that can restore volume loss, create definition and improve fine lines, dehydration and overall skin tone and texture.  

I also love consulting with clients about their skin concerns to create individualised, holistic treatment plans. I work alongside and regularly refer clients to our dermal therapists for photo analysis and skin programs.

What do you love most about being an Aesthetic Nurse?
We all learn that the key to happiness is pursuing your passion. As an Aesthetic Nurse, I get to do this every day. 

Most clients I see in clinic feel their appearance doesn’t reflect how they feel about themselves. With my education and training, I can apply my aesthetic knowledge in a consultation to help achieve their goals. 

What are your favourite Cosmetic Aesthetics consultations to perform and why?
This one is a little bias since it was previously a concern for myself, but my favourite area to provide consultations on is for under the eyes! 

Dark eyes are a common concern for many and can make you look tired or aged. It affects many and is a delicate part of the anatomy. The eyes are such an expressive area of the face, and lifting and brightening the under eye creates a refreshed and youthful look that no amount of sleep could achieve. 

What’s the most common concern your clients have visiting you for a cosmetic aesthetic consultation?
Definitely the unknown. We are all naturally cautious when something is new. Whether it’s the first time meeting me, or their first time getting cosmetic aesthetics, it can be quite a nerve-wracking experience initially. 

A comprehensive consultation is key. I want to understand what has brought them into the clinic, how are they feeling about themselves, their concerns, and their ideal outcome following treatment.  

As I’m listening to my clients, I gain insight into what they need from me. What information they need to understand the treatments and how they work. It’s important I create a realistic idea of what treatment results will look like. Creating a treatment plan together that will address their concerns and, where possible, achieving this at a rate the client is comfortable with. 

What advice would you give to someone looking to start their Cosmetic Aesthetic journey for the first time? 

The best advice I could give is to seek information. Learn about the treatment and visit your Aesthetic Nurse for a comprehensive consultation, ask lots of questions and don’t forget to see their portfolio of work. 

Thank you so much for your insight, Leah! Where can we find you?
I am located at the Whitford City and Bunbury clinics in Western Australia.
