“Making patients feel comfortable and informed is central to how I engage with aesthetic treatments. Especially if it’s someone’s first time, it’s so important to establish a trusting relationship whereby the patient always feels like they’re both in control of their skin and able to ask questions. This sets the foundations for fantastic results, because I’m able to work closely with the patient to truly understand what they’d like to achieve with their skin. From there, it’s about making it happen and maintaining the results with excellent aftercare.” – Carrie
A registered nurse with years of aesthetic experience, Eva's approach to non-surgical treatments is fuelled by her passion for overall skin health and wellbeing.
Prior to joining VIVA Skin Clinics, Eva worked with high-end dermatologists, helping them to administer dermatological and non-surgical treatments. Coming from this background of medical skincare, Eva is fantastically equipped to assess not only the current condition of patients’ skin, but also the causes of certain skin concerns and what can be done in a lifestyle respect to achieve the best possible complexion.
With a deep understanding of how the skin works, what can trigger common concerns and how to treat them effectively, Eva specialises in crafting bespoke treatment plans with a focus on skin health. This allows patients to enjoy instant results from her specialist, in-clinic treatments, and then maintain those with the expert guidance and prescription-only skincare.

My focus with any non-surgical procedure is to create noticeable yet natural results which the patients love – it’s all about tailoring any VIVA experience and making it unique.” – Eva
