Dermal Therapist Karen Bowen has a reputation for getting results where others have failed. In a career spanning more than 32 years, she is renowned for the safety and efficacy of her procedures.

You may have heard Karen on talk-back radio, or read articles about her and her treatments (these have included several in the Sunday Times Magazine). In fact, in STM’s ‘Hot 200’ list of ‘Best of the West’, she was memorably described as “The Mother Teresa of skin care.”

Karen has studied in Australia, America, France and Germany. Her training has included observing plastic surgery procedures on different areas of the face, so that she knows exactly what’s required to support clients before and after such surgery.
In addition, Karen makes regular trips to the U.S.A. to stay abreast of advances in Dermal therapy. These trips include training with the dermatologist who invented IPL, as well as as training with another dermatologist who sets the parameters for IPL.

In Perth, Karen liaises with cosmetic surgeons, plastic surgeons and dermatologists, who often refer clients to her. Karen also works closely with her own clinic’s cosmetic physicians.

For those seeking non-surgical solutions, Karen offers the most up-to-date and proven techniques (not the latest fads) to provide excellence in skin care. To that end, she and her small but dedicated team attend seminars and education programmes on a regular basis, to ensure that the clinic is always completely up to date with new technology and products for the benefit of clients.

In addition, Karen travels to America each year, researching innovations in technology and training. The aim, always, is to remain at the forefront of skin care and ensure that she and her staff are fully cognisant of the latest developments as they happen.

So, you can rest assured that Karen and her staff are fully qualified to advise on the ideal treatments and products for every client and their very particular and individual needs.

Karen’s clinic is conveniently located in Applecross, with free parking available at the rear of the shopping arcade.
