TruYou - NOT JUST A NAME
It's a sincere statement of how we approach every one of our clients, we take time to get to know you. We're dedicated to helping you look and feel great.
As a registered nurse and with over ten years experience in appearance medicine, I have extensive experience in the industry. I've worked in a number of different clinic environments as well as managing and owning successful appearance medicine and beauty therapy businesses in the past.
TruYou is a collaboration with some of my most respected colleagues. We are all experienced registered nurses specialising in a boutique service offering and providing treatments in several convenient locations across Northland and Auckland. We believe in expert care, natural results and an honest approach - We love to help you find the 'TruYou'.

MEET THE TEAM
Hi - I'm Chrissie
I started my career as a Registered Nurse contracting in many different areas of the health sector, including GP practice nursing and palliative care. I have previously owned a successful Appearance Medicine and Beauty Therapy clinic in Auckland.
During my time within the industry, I have gained a strong background in facial assessment and administering Botulinumtoxin-A and Dermal Fillers, as well as performing collagen induction skin corrective therapies such as Dermal Needling and Fractional CO2 Laser. I am also experienced in spider vein laser, hair removal and photo rejuvenation.
I created TruYou with the vision of providing specialised treatments and expert care, with an honest approach. Our collaboration means that we can offer these services in a number of locations convenient to you.
Hello - I'm Suzie
My nursing career has been varied and exciting, working initially in a DHB within different roles and disciplines, and I developed a passion for Emergency nursing where I stayed for many years. I have worked in senior executive roles such as Project Director, General Manager of a hospital and in Quality and Risk / Auditing roles for large national organisations.
Appearance Medicine is now my passion, while working both as a clinical injector as well as a national trainer for nurses in the industry. I have had the privilege of helping many people along their journey to self-confidence.
I approach facial assessments in conjunction with the individual person, and together we explore desired outcomes and how we can make a difference through the use of Botulinumtoxin-A, Dermal Fillers, collagen induction skin corrective therapies and fractional plasma devices.
Hey - I'm Carol
I am excited to be part of the TruYou team, working in an industry which allows both men and women be able to present themselves confidently to the world. I know from personal experience that how you look can have serious consequences for your self-esteem and these days, with so many unobtrusive tools at our disposal, we can choose to present our “best” self.
My interest in appearance medicine has been on-going for the last fifteen years and it has been a lifetime goal of mine to join this industry. To be able to do so at a time of great innovation and when so many options are available for clients, is a dream come true.
My nursing background includes working in acute medical wards, practise nursing and working as a community- based nurse. I am skilled in assessment and comprehensive care planning, and have had considerable experience as an independent Vaccinator with Onsite Health.
Hi - I'm Penny
I'm a qualified practitioner with over 10 years industry experience in Beauty Therapy and more than 5 years in Cosmetic Tattoo. I'm passionate about delivering the best results for every one of my clients and I'm continually working to advance my experience and techniques.
I originally established The Brow Academy to offer client treatments and to provide comprehensive training in the art of cosmetic tattoo. I'm so excited for my business to now be part of the TruYou 'family' and feel blessed to be in the same company as these skilled professionals. Our business values are very similar and we all love the idea of offering all of our clients a more comprehensive range of treatments.
I will also continue providing training courses for cosmetic tattoo through Northland Cosmetic Academy and look forward to offering all of our clients a comprehensive range of services.
