Just over 38 years ago, Sue Verheyen followed her driving ambition to assist people with enjoying their appearance. Sue enjoys working for the satisfaction she receives from assisting her clients with effective results driven systems. Whether it is a skin condition such as rosacea, sun damage, acne, clogging, pigmentation, rejuvenation or simply hydration, Sue’s goal has always been to educate her clients on honest effective skin treatments and home care. Sue highly values performing treatments in a safe and methodical manner with no hype – just honesty and integrity.
“I just want to see people walk out of our clinic feeling good and noticing a difference,” said Sue. “To us our clients are not just a number; they are a person. My goals are as simple as seeing an acne client walk out with their heads held high with self-esteem and improved skin.”
Remaining ahead of world-wide trends, treatments and ingredients have always been at the forefront of Sue’s mind, so much so that 17 years ago her former salon, Mt Eliza Beauty Therapy, became the first beauty therapy salon outside of the medical field, at that time, to perform laser treatments for skin rejuvenation and hair removal, which was achieved by Sue after extensive research and extensive training in the US.
Shortly after Sue was invited by a Swedish company to introduce the very first injectable clinic, within a salon, in Australia. Before embracing yet another first, Sue satisfied her main concerns regarding safety, longevity, effectiveness and results by examining the outcomes. Sue then made the decision to establish an ethical appearance medicine clinic, including a doctor, at Advanced Skin & Laser moving the laser and injectable business to 5 Old Mornington Rd, Mount Eliza, and keeping Mount Eliza Beauty Therapy situated opposite as the beauty salon.
Ten years ago, Dr Romero joined Sur with his outstanding medical team for injectors, including James Barret, who has been with them for many years now. Adele Simic joined the team six years ago. Adele completed her Diploma in Beauty Therapy in 2007. Following this with laser training and diplomas in skin peels and skin conditions working side by side with a doctor in Queensland. Adele has extensive experience in performing facials with microdermabrasion, medical-grade skin peeling, needling, plus IPL and laser for broken capillaries, sun damage and hair removal.
“Everyone wants guarantees, not false promises. That’s is why after 38 years I still have a leasing clinic in the forefront of effective treatments and outcomes. I stand beside other medical professionals to uphold the integrity of the industry and focus on the outcomes and the whole person,” said Sue. “We’re not expensive. We work within the realms of good will and honesty. My reputation has held me in good stead for 38 years in Mount Eliza and it’s still growing with Adele by my side.”
