Beauty Advice From A Cosmetic Injectable Nurse | 2022
We sat down with our Cosmetic Nurse, Elizabeth, to talk about all things beauty and cosmetic injectables.

Keep reading to find her favourite piece of beauty advice, which treatments she recommends and a sneaky little discount off your first injectables treatment!
How did you get into the beauty industry?
I've always been passionate about the beauty industry, but it wasn't until I was stood down from my job as a flight manager (due to Covid-19) that I decided to pursue it full-time. I met a Plastic Surgeon on one of my flights who invited me to assist in his cosmetic clinics in Bangkok and LA. I fell in love with cosmetic injectables right away.
Being stood down ended up being a blessing in disguise as it catapulted me into the world of beauty. I began working full-time in the cosmetics industry and took every opportunity to advance my training and education.
I haven't looked back since!
What inspired you to become a Cosmetic Nurse?
I've always been fascinated with beauty treatments and skincare - Cosmetic Nursing has enabled me to turn that passion into a career. I love that I get to spend my days empowering others to feel good about themselves. It's truly an honour to be part of that process.
Do you have a favourite concern to work on?
I love working with my clients on their skin health. Minimising the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, pigmentation and/or acne scarring is so satisfying. My go-to cosmetic treatment for this is a PRP Vampire Facial.
What's your favourite beauty treatment to have done with Brazilian Beauty?
Dermaplaning! I love how smooth and radiant it leaves my skin. I couldn't recommend it enough, particularly before a big event - your make-up will melt into your skin flawlessly.

If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only take one Australian Skin Institute product with you, what would it be?
The Rejuvenating Day Cream. It's formulated with Vitamin B3, which is seriously good for every skin type! Plus, it contains Zinc Oxide, which protects the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. I couldn't live without it in my morning routine.
What advice would you give someone thinking about having cosmetic injections for the first time?
Go for it! You have nothing to lose! But if you’re feeling unsure or even a little curious, start with a complimentary consultation. I would love to meet with you, get to know you and chat about your goals. Everything I do is totally customisable. For example, when it comes to lip filler, we can do everything from a subtle enhancement of your cupid's bow to adding lots of luxurious volume for a more dramatic look. I'm all about enhancing your unique features and empowering you to become your most confident self.
What cosmetic injectable treatment do you see becoming popular over the next year?
PRP Vampire Facials. The results speak for themselves. It's incredibly anti-ageing and great for acne scarring and rosacea. Plus, I think it's pretty cool that we're using your natural platelet-rich plasma to plump and rejuvenate the skin. It's like a gift from yourself that just keeps on giving.

What’s the one piece of skin advice you wish all of your clients would follow?
Always wear sunscreen. I see a lot of premature ageing caused by sun damage. Get into the habit of wearing sunscreen every day. Your future self will thank you for it, trust me.
Is there anything you think a lot of people don't realise about cosmetic injections that you would like them to know?
Having a cosmetic injectable treatment doesn’t mean you have to change your entire look. The best injectable treatments are often the ones you don't notice. I love educating my clients on the process and working on subtle enhancements that leave your friends saying,
'gosh you look good!'
But they can't quite put their finger on what you've done.
Elizabeth continues to thrive in the beauty industry. She combines the perfect balance of education and passion, and her expertise is unparalleled. We can’t wait to watch her continue to grow while she sets a new standard for the aesthetics industry and empowers her clients with a range of injectable treatment options.
