We think of our clients as extended family and we want to share more about ourselves and our team. Lauren chooses each and every staff member carefully. With a team of highly skilled Dermal Clinicians, Paramedical Skin and Beauty Therapists, you are guaranteed warmth in every treatment you receive and hopefully a bond will be made that only a client and her skin therapist can understand.
Lauren is our exceptionally gifted founder and the visionary behind The Heart of Beauty. With over 24 years experience, she has a wealth of knowledge and always has everybody’s best interest at heart. Lauren truly believes in bringing out the inner beauty in every one of her clients and always gives 100% to ensure those around her feel their absolute best.
A meticulous eye for detail, Lauren has a flair for minimalist, relaxed and luxe design which led her to entrust in interior designer Noël Coughlan of NC Interiors. Together they have created the epitome of excellence, a space that invokes a sense of calm and warmth upon entering, whilst simultaneously providing a clinical aesthetic for the community to be treated in with the utmost care.
Lauren takes incredible pride in all that she does, choosing world renowned paramedical skincare company Danne’ Montague King (DMK) as her formulation of choice. Their philosophy is to Remove, Rebuild, Protect and Maintain. A four-step process to bring the skin into homeostasis in line with the natural chemistry of the body and promote optimal health of the function of the skin. Her ‘can’t live without’ prescriptives from the DMK range are the Milk Cleanser and Revitosin. Together they work in synergy to deeply cleanse and clear congestion, and increase cellular turnover leaving the skin visibly smoother, even in texture and colour.
When Lauren is not in the clinic, she loves to be immersed in nature and looks forward to self-care Sundays at her most treasured spot on the coast, the Noosa National Park. A sunset lover, you will also find her enjoying the best part of the day with her beloved children and adorable dog.
Carly hails from country NSW where she spent her childhood growing up on a wheat and sheep farm. Before making the Sunshine Coast home she spent over 12 years in Canberra alongside leading plastic surgeon, Dr Alastair Talyor who specialises in abdominoplasties and reconstructive procedures.
She is a world of wisdom and extremely knowledgeable having undertaken a degree in dermal therapies at Victoria University before going on to do postgraduate studies in dermoscopy and nutritional medicine. She is passionate about education and continually keeps up to date with current research and medical literature. She goes above and beyond to truly empower her clients and help them acquire healthy, long-term results.
Over her phenomenal career, Carly has specialised in laser therapies and continues to treat in clinic for a multitude of skin concerns and disorders. She believes that an overall approach utilising modern technology in conjunction with home prescriptives collectively achieves optimum results with her clients. Carly’s prescriptive of choice is the Digestive Tune Up dietary supplements, a three-step process to cleanse, restore and maintain the microbiome of the gut. By rebalancing the good bacterial cultures in the gastrointestinal tract and providing them with the appropriate environment to flourish, a cascade of positive side effects is evidently seen in skin conditions.
When Carly is not in the clinic educating the community on all things skin, she loves to adventure and explore all that the Coast has at our doorstep. We are so proud to have Carly on the team as our leading dermal clinician and look forward to you experiencing her remarkable expertise. Carly and her partner are now the proud parents of their little baby boy.

Every business owner knows how hard it is to find brilliant team members and when I received Katilyn’s application I knew instantly that she would be the perfect fit for our clinic. I somehow seem to be lucky in this regard!
Filled with warmth and smiles Katilyn works with us on a full time basis. She has a vast knowledge of all things skin and previous experience working in management roles. “This has really taught me that being in the room is my passion. I love getting to know clients and making them feel loved and welcomed. It brings a smile to my face each and every day.”
Katilyn and her partner moved to the Sunshine Coast nearly three years ago now and have fallen in love with Peregian Beach for its beautiful beaches and amazing people. In her spare time her happy place is under her umbrella at the beach with her beautiful dog, a good book, while watching her partner surf.
“Working at The heart of beauty has always been a dream of mine since calling Peregian Beach home. Such a beautiful space and lovely team.
The reason why I absolutely love my job: I want each and every client to feel confident in their own skin!”
Favourite treatment: Laser! I have been performing laser for years in NSW. Queensland Laser Licensing rules are very strict, for good reason. So I have been doing my practical hours under Carlys guidance for six months. I absolutely love the results from treating leg veins, cherry angiomas to skin rejuvenation with laser genesis.
Katilyn proudly received her full Qld Health Radiation Licence in early 2023. Well done Katilyn and thanks for taking such good care of our clients.
