Team Elixir


Elixir founder, Skin therapist and Cool Sculpting team leader

Twelve years in the health and beauty industry and I love my job and my team Elixir more and more... Our enthusiastic girls, loyal clients and our beautiful commercial heritage cottage make for the perfect environment. Health and skin are my passion! I’m in the most fitting career and nothing rewards me more than the many clients I bring happiness to.


I myself am from Tasmania and started my study and career in the apple aisle.  My approach is entirely different too many in my industry. I was driven into this industry by my troubled teenage acne skin, seeing eczema and dermatitis discomfort and realising my mum’s generation needed to be made feel youthful and learn to take care of their skin.  The skin is the largest organ in our body and the vitamins and minerals arrive their last.


I believe the skin is to be treated internally and externally. A few routine tweaks and treatments can take off ten years! In our skin treatments whether it’s acne, pigmentation or anti aging treatments... we believe clients need to be pampered with massage and enjoy the therapy side. Your time is precious and valuable to us so will maximise results!


Yes we have our own skin care and foundation range. I have trained in Clarins, Emergin C, Md formulations, Dermologica, Peelactiv, Ultraceuticals, The beauty Chef, the Jojoba company, da Vinci 21 growth factors, Bloomea and Inskin to name a few. I have won awards in excellence and yearly I attend extra training and seminars. I am always learning and was driven to have bio chemists create our own line combining my knowledge and their science to deliver results and prescribe personally.


In my experience of previously running Elixir Skin Clinic inside Fernwood women’s health gym clients practically begged me to find a solution for their stubborn areas! I’m proud to say we have partnered with Cool Sculpting by Zeltiq and are removing fat cells that are gone for good. Bringing many more smiles and sculpted bodies back.


Your body and skin is unique so I invite you for a personal body or skin assessment and I shall truly tell you what’s possible. Thank you for reading.


Allow me to inspire your best skin, Kathryn (founder of Elixir Skin Clinic)

Hair stylist and managing operator of  Elixir For Hair

Melanie also developed a flair for management whilst learning under owner and manager of Kaye’s Hairstylist for 42 years- Sue Chase. Sue entrusted Melanie with management tasks such as rostering staff, training apprentices and ordering from a young age. Sue empowered Melanie to grow her skills as not only a hairdresser, but for business too; always encouraging her to open her own salon. With these fundamentals Melanie was able to open Elixir for Hair, running in partnership with Elixir Skin & Health Clinic.
