DR MAY MARR
MEDICAL DIRECTOR AND FOUNDER OF THE MARR CLINIC
Our story began in 2009 when Dr. May relocated to Lennox Head with her toddler, pursuing advanced physician training to become an Oncologist. However, faced with her own battle against adult acne and driven by her passion for helping others with their skin, she made the decision to shift gears and delve into aesthetics.
Dr. May's personal struggle with adult acne proved to be a turning point in her career. Unable to continue her Oncology training, she embarked on a new journey in medical aesthetics.
Over the years, Dr. May immersed herself in extensive local and international research to perfect the art of aesthetics. Her passion led her to study under renowned experts such as Dr. Jacque Le Coz, a leading figure in Mesotherapy, and she was invited to be a clinical trainer by Galderma, a prominent aesthetic company. Her pursuit of excellence continued as she pursued studies in Dermatology and obtained her GP Fellowship in Dermatology from the Australian Institute of Dermatology in 2019, alongside Dr. Ian McColl.
Dr May has a commitment to putting the clients' needs first. Her priority is to deliver exceptional service and unwavering commitment to each and every client.
In her free time, Dr May likes to spend time with her beautiful 2 legged and 4 legged babies. She likes to keep her mind and body healthy and enjoys a varied range of activities ranging from adventure travel, learning new languages, cake creations, rock climbing and pole dancing.
