Madilyn- The Functional Nurse
Owner/Cosmetic Injector/Skin Nurse (RN)
Madilyn, The Functional Nurse is the Founder of The Functional Skin Studio. She has a Bachelor of Nursing, Diploma in Beauty & Skin along with postgraduate Dermatology and Integrative Medicine studies.
Madilyn has spent years working under Cosmetic doctors and also worked in both gastrointestinal and orthopaedic wards in the hospital. Madilyn has endured her own skin battles, from eczema to keratosis pilaris and acne. She found the conventional treatment consisted of bandaid approaches through medicine and creams that only caused side effects and long term damage to the skin.
This sparked Maddie's interest into holistic skin care and integrative Medicine to address the disease's root cause. Not only does she have her patients glowing from outside with Cosmetic injectables and skin treatments, but glowing from within with her Holistic health knowledge.
Alisha is a Clinical Nurse specialist for one of Australia’s leading Dermatology companies and has been for the past four years.

Alisha understands the balance between art and science necessary to refine the individual beauty of her patients.
