The Alkira Team

Alkira means ‘bright & happy’, the ‘sun’ and ‘sky’, in the traditional language. Our vision is to provide a space of collaboration where knowledge and skills are shared, developed and enhanced through sharing of expertise and know-how. Teaching new skills and exploring better ways of delivering aesthetic treatments, while providing a supportive environment to build the knowledge and confidence of practitioners across Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.

Recognising the need to provide a purpose-built Aesthetic Centre for training, mentoring and masterclasses, Robin opened the doors to Face Academy in August 2017 which ultimately inspired the creation of Alkira Aesthetics in June 2021.

In recognition of the need to evolve aesthetic training, Alkira Aesthetics is a space for collaboration between manufacturers, corporations, clinical trainers, clinical educators and clinicians. A space where practical small group learning, masterclasses and 1-on-1 mentoring is provided, in a safe and professional manner. Where client safety and safe practice are the cornerstones of the Alkira Aesthetics vision.
