Meet Eliza from SILK Laser Clinics

Posted: March 4, 2024 | Author: Figtree Grove

A familiar face at Figtree Grove, Eliza Joseph has been working at SILK Laser Clinics for the past year as a skin specialist and cosmetic injector nurse. 

When she’s not at the beach or exploring the beautiful outdoors with her puppy and partner, she’s at the Clinic working with locals to achieve their youthful beauty goals.

Graduating from the University of Wollongong as a registered nurse, Eliza furthered her studies at the Australasian Academy of Cosmetic and Dermal Science (AACDS).
“Being skilled in both advanced medical skin treatments and cosmetic experience with anti-wrinkle and dermal fillers allows my clients to benefit from a holistic approach to achieve natural results,” she said.

Priding herself on attention to detail and a passion for cosmetic services, Eliza is all about helping people.
“I want my clients to feel youthful and comfortable in themselves from the inside out,” she said.
“Adding subtle changes whilst retaining a natural appearance make such a difference for clients.” 

The first consultation for anything can be the trickiest to navigate so we asked Eliza what customers can expect when they visit her for the first time.
“I’m always looking for ways to improve on what I know so I can practice the safest and up-to-date techniques for clients,” she said.
“It’s important to know that all cosmetic procedures require a thorough and personalised consultation prior to treatment, which are complimentary with me, so pop in for a chat and let’s get started!” 

Eliza is in the Clinic from Wednesday – Saturday and offers: 

  • Anti-Wrinkle
  • Dermal and Lip fillers 
  • Chin sculpting and more!
