Aescend Aesthetics was founded on a want to provide responsible, accessible and contemporaneous cosmetic services on the South Coast. It is owned and operated by Jenna and Stacey, two Registered Nurses with more than 20 years of experience between them. At Aescend, we have a different approach to aesthetics with an emphasis on safety and results.


We believe in fair access to cosmetic treatment. We honour this belief by ensuring that our prices provide us adequate remuneration while also remaining at the affordable end of the market. Our product lines are chosen to support this vision as well as for their efficacy and safety.


We pride ourselves on providing safe, considered practice which is aligned to industry best practice. We are members of the Aesthetic Medical Emergency team as well as the Cosmetic Nurses' Association. We are also both concurrently employed in external disciplines of nursing and have extra qualifications in our relevant areas of practice, including Intensive and Emergency care.


We believe in quality products, care and treatments. We do not run off a production line mentality. We take the time to listen to your concerns, allay your fears and plan your treatments with the hopes of providing an exemplary product that you are happy with and we can feel proud of.


We believe in unique beauty and highlighting the features that make our patients individually appealing. Cosmetics should not be about masking who you are or trying to look like someone else, it should be about harnessing what you have.


We believe in treatments and products that work; and aim to align expectations throughout our journey with you.


We are firstly clinicians and remain beholden to this duty. With that comes a duty of care to our patients which we take seriously. We will always be available beyond your treatment to address concerns or complications if they arise.


We believe in discrete, natural-looking results that leave people guessing. No duck lips here!

At Aescend we are committed to safe, considered practice that is in the best interests of our patients and in keeping with the ethical standards of the nursing profession. 

As such we are constantly upskilling, improving and seeking innovative ways to ensure alignment to best-practice within the industry. Part of this quest includes maintaining active membership with governing and guiding bodies within the cosmetic industry. 


AMET was founded with the mission to increase aesthetic medicine safety standards and improve patient outcomes. 

It is an organisation of specialist medical professionals who provide 24 hour support and guidance within the cosmetic medicine industry, as well as current, evidence-based practice guidelines. Membership is currently optional for cosmetic practitioners within Australia. 


The CNA is a not-for-profit membership-based organisation, established in 2020 to serve as a collective voice for all nurses who provide non-surgical cosmetic services within the Cosmetic Industry in Australia and protecting the future of nurses.  

The CNA not only helps to protect patient safety by lifting industry standards but also strives to provide nurses with a safe working environment and a clear training and education pathway to advance their skills and expertise.  


"I believe in beauty with a conscience and responsible consultations, but foremost, I believe in quality and safety. As being at the bedside and seeing the passing and beginning of life is a privilege as a nurse, so too is witnessing the birth of personal belief."

Stacey is a Registered Nurse with 10 years experience who completed her training on the South Coast of New South Wales.

After spending much of her adult life between Wollongong and Narrawallee, Stacey has witnessed the evolution of this much beloved part of the coast. When the opportunity arose to bring contemporaneous services to the area, that would grow and modernise her hometown; Stacey was keen to be involved.

Having spent 2 years prior to nursing as an Assistant in Nursing, Stacey is empathetic. She has a devotion to patient care, and a genuine love for people that sets her apart from her peers. From her beginnings in the busy Wollongong Hospital Emergency department, she rose to become a trainer, educator and manager at the local hospital, where her face will be familiar.

The role that she held here as a Clinical Nurse Specialist, and the qualifications she has achieved, are testament to the internal motivation that excels Stacey to excellence in her endeavours. First meeting Jenna in Canberra where they were both studying a Bachelor in Applied Science (Human Biology), Stacey went on to do her Nursing.

In addition to her Bachelor of Nursing, she has a Graduate Certificate in Emergency Nursing and further qualifications in trauma and advanced life support. She has completed aesthetic training with the Aesthetic and Skin Institute as well as industry leaders in cosmetic and complementary therapies.

She has also recently completed graduate qualifications in dermatology, and is pursuing additional studies in female health and nutrition. She is the perfect partner to this venture, likewise valuing patient safety, quality care, and equitable services. Having spent most of her profession entrusted with life, you can be assured you are in safe hands with her as your dermal artisan.

Qualified in the therapies on offer at Aescend Aesthetics, Stacey is a formidable conduit by which to exalt yourself.
