On returning to Australia and continuing her studies Carmen qualified in Dermal Science and began working within the cosmetic & medical field. This is where she continued to further her knowledge and develop her skills whilst spending 6 plus years dedicated to treating skin, providing her clients with professional yet personalised and personal service. So many of these clients saw Carmen as the skin saviour, as her passion & dedication was unmatched, after many years of experience and mastering her craft, Carmen launched her first business & in December 2014 and The Skin Fairy was born.
A career aspiration, an accumulation of years of study and endless hours of experience Carmen’s vision for Skin Fairy Clinic was to create a space which encompassed all she believes in and stands for. A space of calm, modern and to the minute but never trendy nor intimidating Skin Fairy Clinic is a clinic for all things skin. The focus of the clinic is and has always been the clients concerns & skin condition, offering individualised skin rejuvenating programs that ensure skin health and progress towards overcoming problems. Along with the Philosophy that Skin Is A Holistic Approach and is to be treated topically & internally, Carmen has attracted a cult like following within the Perth Bridal community, treating men & women to the lead up of their big day.
