About Tina Nicholls

Tina Nicholls is a cosmetic dermatology nurse who provides skin maintenance and enhancement therapies designed to preserve the youthful appearance of the skin and minimise the effects of scarring, sun damage and aging. Treatments offered include dermal fillers, facial and body peels, Dermapen™ and Dysport™ (botulinum A toxin). All the treatments are offered under the supervision of Dr David Nicholls, dermatologist.


Tina Nicholls has been a registered nurse since 1979, having trained in Christchurch at the School of Nursing. Her work experience has included Emergency, ICU and theatre nursing for two years at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London, before joining her husband as a surgical and cosmetic dermatology nurse in 1989. She has a BSc degree from Canterbury University as well as the NZRN qualification.


Her areas of expertise include injecting dermal fillers to correct facial lines/ scars, and enhancement of the lip edge. She also administers botulinum therapy (a British brand, Dysport™ botulinum A toxin) for frown and squint lines.


Face and body peels are also a specialty. Tina imports PCA Skin® (Physician’s Choice of Arizona) peels which give outstanding results after a course of treatments. She also stocks a small selection of PCA Skin® care products.


General advice on skin care and product use is also offered, including the use of retinoid cream for facial rejuvenation.


Tina’s practice emphasises products that deliver what they promise, at an affordable cost. As a woman practitioner with 20 years’ experience in cosmetic dermatology, Tina is in a unique position to offer advice and treatment for your cosmetic skin problem, and is able to seek Dr Nicholls’ advice and/or assistance when required.
