It’s founders and directors, Kaye Scott and Lisa Sullivan-Smith both coming from a nursing and pharmaceutical industry background, wanted to create an anti-ageing space, which combined clinical expertise in a safe and enjoyable environment.

Today, The Clinic Bondi provides the very best services and technologies for your face and body. Specialising in evidence-based treatments, including skin tightening, skin rejuvenation, laser treatments, medical grade face peels and cosmetic injectables, The Clinic Bondi only employs Doctors and Registered Nurses, so every client feels safe and confident they will get exceptional results.


The Founders

Co-Director, Kaye Scott

Kaye Scott trained as a Registered General and Psychiatric Nurse in Dublin, Ireland before working as a Registered Nurse at St. Vincent's Hospital, Sydney where she specialised in ICU. After nursing, Kaye worked for several leading pharmaceutical companies before starting a career as a clinical nurse trainer for Boots Health Care Australia. After working as a clinical trainer for a laser company, Kaye noticed a gap in the market for a clinic that offered a high level of clinical care, experience and service. Kaye enjoys working in skin care, Fraxel and IPL treatments and believes you can look great for your age, rather than trying to look 10 years younger. “It’s not necessarily lines that can age you but the condition of your skin,” she says.Kaye is passionate about helping her clients to feel the very best in their skin:

“Our treatments make a difference to how women and men feel about themselves every single second, of every minute, of every day."

Co-Director, Lisa Sullivan-Smith

Lisa Sullivan-Smith commenced her nursing career at St Vincent’s Private Hospital and her interest in plastic surgery began at this time as she developed a passion for aesthetics. "I remember looking after my first face-lift patient and thought all the intricacy of facial surgery and reconstruction was fascinating,” she says. This enthusiasm led to wanting to develop a greater knowledge of the industry and begin a flourishing career in pharmaceuticals. Lisa was soon head hunted by a leading French Dermaceutical company, which was her first step to becoming an expert in cosmetic treatments. Lisa’s artistic mind and eye for detail gives her an edge that only few possess when it comes to injectables. She trained exclusively with world renowned figures in non-surgical procedures and has since become a leader in her field. Lisa uses advanced non-surgical treatments such as Thermage, injectable muscle relaxants and dermal fillers to develop individualised treatment plans that achieve natural results: “I see the face as a canvas. Anyone can inject, but not everybody can create the aesthetic ideal.”

How We Work

The philosophy at The Clinic Bondi is feeling confident in your skin no matter what your age. We take a total face approach to achieving your skin goals.

If you are a new client, every appointment at The Clinic Bondi starts with an in-depth skin consultation, during which one of our medically-trained staff will discuss your skin goals and devise a customised treatment plan to achieve them.

With over 23 years of experience, The Clinic Bondi only employs Doctors and Registered Nurses who are experts in their field, so you know you are in safe hands.

The treatments we offer are medical grade, which means they work at deeper levels within the skin and are clinically proven in treating skin concerns such as acne and breakouts, ageing, dryness, dullness, pre- and post-natal, pigmentation, redness and rosacea, and sensitive skin.

Our most popular introductory treatment is the Blueberry Antioxidant Peel, which is the perfect first step to exfoliate and create a healthy glowing complexion to start your skincare routine with us.
