Meet the SM Aesthetic Lab Team

Maddy

Madeline Firkins

Co-owner & Founder
Registered Nurse / Cosmetic Injector

Maddy is SM Aesthetic Lab’s co-owner and founder and has been in the beauty and cosmetic medical industry for over 12 years. She is a registered cosmetic nurse and a clinical trainer for Teoxane and the Australasian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Science (AACDS).

Maddy began her career as a dermal therapist focused on improving her patients skin using a combination of lasers and skin treatments. She found her passion for the cosmetic industry so decided to study nursing and focus on cosmetic injectables. She completed a Bachelor of Nursing degree at the University of Tasmania to pursue her passion in cosmetic injectables. She went on to study her Graduate Diploma in Cosmetic Nursing through AACDS.

She has since worked alongside cosmetic doctors and nurse injectors to expand her knowledge and skill set. This enables her to give her patients an overall assessment on surgical options, injectable options and skin treatments to address her patients concerns. She has since completed her Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and is a clinical trainer and industry leader in cosmetic injectables.

It is important to Maddy that SM Aesthetic Lab is a clinic where patients feel welcomed, with a relaxing ambiance that’s 100% professional, but with a caring atmosphere.

‘It is extremely rewarding giving someone that little touch of confidence and happiness through my work, whether it’s through injectables or skin treatments’.⁠

Maddy dedicates her time training nurses and doctors wanting to enter the cosmetic medical industry or study advanced techniques and treatments. She is highly respected for her expertise and injectable skills.

With two daughters, Maddy is a loving mother who enjoys spending her time off with her beautiful girls. ⁠
