Rochelle Collis: Skin Siren

Rochelle Collis is a mother, skin expert and business owner all in one. She is also responsible for creating one of the best skin rejuvenation treatments in Sydney (yes…I am a loyal rejuvenation groupie). Having started her career in marketing and pharmaceutical sales, Rochelle quickly recognised that sitting in an office every day was not the career for her. She moved into the cosmetic medicine side of skin care and now is committed to bringing women like you and me affordable skin care and repair that was once reserved for the high-end celebrity. Well, thank goodness for that!
