Face Today Mediclinic rebrands to Artisan Aesthetic Clinic Cairns
Cairns cosmetic clinic, Face Today Mediclinic has rebranded to Artisan Aesthetic Clinic Cairns as it continues its mission to help residents look and feel their confident best through state-of-the-art treatments administered by industry leading clinicians.
The rebrand comes two years after founder of Face Today and experienced registered nurse, Nicki Belle sold the clinic to premium medical aesthetics brand, Artisan Aesthetic Clinics in order to expand its unique service offering within the Far North Queensland community.
“This is the next exciting step in our journey with Artisan that started when we joined the brand two years ago,” said Ms Belle. “We’ll still be in the same location with the same faces you know and love– it will just be under a brand new look and feel with more treating rooms and more talented clinicians joining out teams.”
Since joining Artisan, Face Today has gone from strength to strength, expanding its treatment offering to include PDO threads, Clear+Brilliant, medical-grade facials and body contouring thanks to Artisan’s ongoing investment in the latest machinery and clinician training.
“Artisan has brought many benefits to Face Today and changed my working life for the better,” said Ms Belle. “I feel so supported in my practice and am able to stretch myself professionally.”
Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Artisan, Maxine Horne said she looks forward to introducing Face Today clients and the wider Cairns community to Artisan’s premium offering.
“We’re excited to launch Artisan Cairns and introduce clients to the unique experience we provide,” she said. “From our bespoke clinics and state-of-the-art treatments through to our highly-skilled clinicians who are experts at tailoring a combination of treatments and therapies to suit each individual’s goals, we can’t wait to help more clients master their artistry.”
Artisan Aesthetic Clinics launched in November 2018 and currently operates 20 clinics across Australia.
