Senior Skin Care Nurse Consultant and Clinic Co-ordinator
Angela is without doubt one of the most experienced and widely respected Cosmetic Skin Care Specialists in New Zealand. An acknowledged expert in her field Angela has contributed to health and fashion publications, including writing numerous articles for New Zealand’s Fitness Life magazine. She has spoken at a number of industry seminars, including the Australasian Plastic Surgical training weekend for Doctors and the national Plastic Surgical Nurses Symposium. She was a guest speaker on the Good Morning television show talking about botox ® and dermal fillers and has had many radio interviews discussing a wide range of treatment options for cosmetic enhancement.
After qualifying as a Registered Nurse in New Zealand, Angela moved to London and worked for two years in the world-renowned dermatology unit at St Thomas’s hospital. During this time she not only gained extensive specialised knowledge in the field of dermatology but also developed a keen interest in the skin and associated treatments.
This was followed by seven years in the Plastic Surgery and Burns Unit at Auckland’s Middlemore hospital where Angela completed a one-year specialised diploma course in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Nursing.
When invited to join Plastic Surgeons Stephen Gilbert and Janek Januszkiewicz in their private practice, with the main role to be supervising medical skin care programmes and to train as a collagen injector, Angela saw this as the perfect opportunity to combine her experience in Dermatology and Plastic Surgical Nursing. She started at Prescription Skin Care in 1997.
After completing her initial training and qualifying as a specialist collagen injector, Angela was then accredited with a Gold Standard certificate – the highest award achievable in this field.
With the introduction of new generation dermal fillers and, of course, Botox ®, Angela’s training has been both ongoing and extensive. She attends seminars, advanced workshops and conferences in New Zealand, Australia, London and the USA.
Angela is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgical Skin Care Specialists.
Angela will be at the Ponsonby clinic every Tuesday. As the most experienced cosmetic skin care specialist in New Zealand, she will see to it that the Ponsonby clinic receives the necessary attention and expertise to make it another successful PSC clinic.
She will continue her excellent work at the Remuera clinic during other working days.
