Vicki Hull RN
Cosmetic Nurse & Studio Founder
Vicki Hull is the Studio Founder and Director. She hails from Sydney where her career in nursing began 40 years ago. Her broad nursing experience has taken her across many fields, from General Nursing to the more specific areas of Paediatric Nursing, Psychiatric Nursing, Drug & Alcohol Counselling then completing a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Drug Dependence Studies at Macquarie University. Over the past 20 years Vicki found her niche in Cosmetic Medicine after visiting a Cosmetic Physician in Sydney about her pigmentation, he saw a talent in the making and offered her a job as a Cosmetic Nurse and the rest as they say, is history!
Throughout this time Vicki has worked concurrently as a Clinical Trainer for the leading dermal filler company, Galderma (formerly QMED). This role takes her across Australia, training Plastic Surgeons, Cosmetic Physicians and Nurses in basic and advanced injecting anti-ageing techniques. Having a curious mind and an instinctive eye for symmetry and harmony Vicki developed new injecting techniques that are now used by practitioners within the industry. Vicki presents her innovations nationally and internationally at conferences and workshops and is renowned for her unique and creative presentation style. After moving to the Sunny Coast 15 years ago Vicki soon began weaving her magic in practice at Noosa. Being a close knit yet diverse community word soon got out that Vicki was the ‘go-to’ girl for excellence and expertise in injectable anti-ageing treatments.
“Building relationships and working closely with clients to develop achievable treatments plans and delivering realistic natural results requires honesty, integrity and trust” says Vicki. “Having a skilled hand and a keen eye is one thing but being able to make people feel confident and comfortable in your hands is another thing altogether”.
Vicki loves doing what she does best, engaging with people to skilfully help them look their best with an innate ability to put people at ease. The results speak for themselves! For client reviews please click here to head on over to our Facebook page.

Her passion for cosmetic procedures and evidence based skin care took her to a Cosmetic surgery and Medical Spa in London where she worked alongside some of the best in the industry.

After completing a graduate program at the Sunshine Coast Private Hospital, and gaining experience in General Medical and Orthopaedics she returned to the Aesthetic industry. As a mother of two, Bec understands the effects that lack of sleep, home life, work and general ageing can have on the skin which often results in lowered self esteem.
