Meet Katterina

Katterina joins the Face by SM team with a wealth of worldly musings, knowledge and experience enriched by extensive travels, after having spent the best part of a decade globe-trotting around the world.  

Living a split lifestyle between the sunny skies of LA and Sydney, the almost parallel similarities between these two aesthetically driven hubs sparked Katterina’s interest in the rapidly growing and evolving aesthetic medicine arena, with particular interest in advanced skin modalities, facial sculpting and rejuvenation.  

 

With insight and experience in diverse health and beauty treatments from high end salons and clinics, Katterina is enthralled by our service portfolio and the ethos behind the work we do.  With an avid interest in the health and wellness space, Katterina favours an integrated approach between natural therapies and science, encompassing a broad spectrum of practices that strike a balance between mind, body and spirit. 

 

With meticulous care and attention to detail, Katterina co-ordinates the operation and facilitation of the clinic, striving for your experience to be the signature Face by SM standard, from your first to last point of contact, through to when we next welcome you back into the clinic.  

 

With a passion for helping guide and support each and every guest of Face by SM through their individualised treatment journey, Katterina, along with the entire team, is wholeheartedly invested in assisting you to discover your very best self.

Meet Sanja

Sanja specialises in the art of non-surgical facial rejuvenation. With over 15 years’ experience, a Bachelor Degree in Nursing, as well as Diplomas in both Beauty Therapy and Special Effects Makeup – Sanja brings a deep understanding of facial anatomy to her work at Face by SM.

It is this esthetic sensibility that allows for a more holistic and minimalist approach to cosmetic enhancement – one that focuses on highlighting natural beauty using injectable techniques and pairing artistic flair with incredible precision. Sanja always knew that she wanted to use her expertise and imagination to impart confidence within her clients.

After many years of training alongside highly regarded industry professionals, Sanja started a cosmetic boutique at the La Porte Space, which has now expanded to her own custom designed, state of the art cosmetic clinic. Face by SM is a haven laced with luscious floral tones and decadent marble accents; whilst conveniently being located on Oxford Street in the heart of Paddington.

Sanja’s vision for Face by SM has created a warm and open environment that enables clients to feel comfortable to take part in the creation of a customized treatment plan. The results are elegant, understated and incredibly youthful.

Meet Lacey

After completing her diploma in Beauty Therapy at The Australasian Natural Therapies in 2011, Lacey was quickly identified as an emerging talent due to her meticulous attention to detail as well as offering a uniquely holistic and personalized approach to beauty and wellness.

Holistic wellness is associated with treatments and remedies that are natural, safe and focused on one’s internal and external wellbeing. So much more goes into the wellness of your skin then just a single treatment or product. One’s emotions, hormonal balance, nutrition, and the types of products used on the skin synergistically make up the health of their skin.

Whilst gaining incredible industry experience both here and in the United States, Lacey went on the further her studies in the areas of holistic skin analysis – completing courses in lymphatic drainage, advanced dermal needling, skin mapping, hormonal imbalances, massage therapy and integrative nutrition. Her incredibly diverse training as well as highly customized treatment plans have ensured her reputation as one of the best dermal aestheticians in Sydney.

As a certified health and nutrition coach, Lacey offers a tailored and specialized approach in addressing skin issues and concerns, assisting clients with their diet and lifestyle choices, stress reduction and hormonal balancing in addition to providing result-driven treatments for the most outstanding results possible. Now with more than over a decade of experience and certified training in holistic beauty therapy, Lacey’s primary concern is to assist her client’s in feeling “their most confident – inside and out”.

Meet Mikayla

Mikayla is truly passionate and personally invested in all areas of health, wellness, and cosmetic aesthetics.  An initial interest in the fitness industry inspired her to commence a career as a personal trainer and pilates instructor.  Further studies in nutrition enhanced her knowledge and skill set, which proved highly valuable in providing her clients a more in-depth, well rounded service.

Mikayla's quest for expanding and broadening her areas of expertise led to completing a Diploma in Beauty Therapy, with the intention of focusing on advanced skin modalities.  Through undertaking these studies, Mikayla's natural talent for the medical aesthetic industry was quickly evident and whilst currently working in clinic as a dermal therapist, she is completing a Bachelor of Nursing, to eventually incorporate injectables into her service repertoire.

Mikayla's integrated approach to her work draws on all aspects of her diverse training and experience, which are proven in synergistic solutions and successful results.  Her warm, personal touch instils confidence in all her clients, to reach their full potential in looking and feeling their absolute best!
