About...

Welcome to Illuminate Aesthetics Co., where your skin’s health and beauty are our passion. Located in Warana on the Sunshine Coast, we have established ourselves as a leading destination for advanced aesthetic treatments and cosmetic treatments in Australia.

We believe that true beauty shines from within, and our primary goal is to offer a natural look that emphasises positive ageing. We understand that each individual’s skin is unique, which is why we tailor our services to meet your specific needs, ensuring a personalised experience that yields the best results.

Founded by a team of dedicated skin care professionals, Illuminate Aesthetics Co. has grown from a humble beginning to a renowned clinic known for its expertise, innovation, and heartfelt care. After completing a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and garnering a strong foundation in acute care, our Founder Steph pursued specialised training in cosmetics and aesthetics. Deeply passionate about the field, Steph envisioned a warm, welcoming studio on the Sunshine Coast. With the support of her partner, Chris, Illuminate Aesthetics was born. The couple’s dedication to ensuring a gentle, comfortable experience with outstanding results defines the essence of Illuminate Aesthetics.

Specialising in an array of skin and body treatments, we offer a comprehensive range of services including treating volume loss or wrinkle concerns, laser skin treatments, body contouring, hydrafacial and more. We are committed to providing a welcoming, comfortable environment where you can relax and unwind while we take care of your skin.
