Tara’s Experience in Anti-Ageing, Pigmentation and Acne Treatment Skin Care including Facials, Peels, CIT and Various Lasers:  Over 20 Years


Tara Stapleton is a highly experienced Dermal Clinician and offers over 20 years of expertise in treating various skin conditions including Melasma, Acne, Rosacea, Redness, visible facial capillaries and other conditions.

She has over twenty years experience in the high-tech skin care and cosmetic treatments and beauty industry.

She previously managed her own Eastern Suburbs skin care clinic in Melbourne for many years, prior to joining our stellar Coco Ruby Skin & Anti-Ageing team in September 2016.

She prides herself on fully customising treatments based upon what she discovers about your skin during a thorough skin assessment, including skin analysis with special imaging such as Canfield’s REVEAL system and other skin analysis technologies.  This allows her to view the skin not just on the surface, but underlying issues such as pigmentation or sun damage, vascularity, dryness or oiliness and other skin conditions which she can help treat or manage using the latest equipment and skin rejuvenation technologies.

She focuses on anti-ageing skin care, effective acne reducing treatments, melasma and pigmentation treatments, pre and post-pregnancy skin care, pre-surgery skin preparation for facelifts or tummy tucks or liposuction and body contouring, post-surgery scar minimisation or scar healing facilitation, and removal of sun spots or other signs of ageing or imperfections on the skin.

Tara takes a holistic approach to helping clients gain healthier, better looking skin

Tara works holistically with each client.

What to expect on your first visit to Tara Stapleton for a Skin Assessment, Home Care Regime Product Discussion or Special Skin Care Treatment:

Tara first conducts an thorough initial dermal skin analysis or skin assessment, including asking what products you are using for your at-home skin care regimes (it is helpful if you bring these products with you to the consult).

This is followed by a customised treatment plan and various options for what you can do to improve the health, texture, tone, pigmentation, ageing signs (wrinkles or lines, ageing spots) and even the moisture-levels of your skin.

She then gives clear recommendations on the best home care protocols and treatments to help improve your skin.  If you have allotted extra time during your skin assessment, you may then have a tailored treatment to help you get your skin looking its best.

Tara also works closely with our Specialist Plastic Surgeons and Injecting Teams to enable you to have total facial or skin rejuvenation options all in the one Clinic.
