Our Story | Mission - 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.
Starting with a modest budget of less than $10,000, Dr. May set up a clinic in the downstairs area of her family home in beautiful Lennox Head. She became a "one-person-band," handling everything from bookings, website management, accounting, marketing, and clinical work.
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.
In 2020, after diligently searching for the perfect location, Dr. May opened The Marr Clinic - a state-of-the-art custom-built clinic in the heart of Lennox Head. The clinic now features three dedicated treatment rooms, and the Marr Clinic "family" has grown to include a team of five exceptional individuals.
What sets us apart from other aesthetic clinics is our commitment to putting our clients' needs first. At The Marr Clinic, none of our practitioners have financial performance targets or revenue goals. Dr. May firmly believes that every treatment we offer is based solely on our clients' individual needs. We only recommend treatments that we genuinely believe will benefit our clients. Our priority is to deliver exceptional service and unwavering commitment to each and every client.
Our mission is built on four key pillars.
Commitment to our clients.
We are a dedicated team of practitioners who prioritize your well-being above all else. With an unwavering commitment to using treatments that have undergone extensive research and proven to deliver tangible benefits, we strive to ensure that you receive the highest quality care.

finish. By taking the time to understand your lifestyle, desires, and budget, we provide bespoke treatments tailored specifically to your needs. We continuously reassess and adapt to ensure you always receive the most personalized and effective treatment possible.
Empower through education.
We believe in the power of knowledge. Our clients choose us because they value feeling informed, and we do too. That's why we invest significant work and time into our initial consultations. We are dedicated to continuous growth and development, traveling worldwide to stay at the forefront of our field.
Passion and joy in what we do.
At The Marr Clinic, we love what we do, and it shows. Our supportive and loving environment fosters a sense of joy and infectious laughter throughout our clinic. While we take our job seriously, we maintain a lively and welcoming atmosphere that ensures you feel comfortable and at ease.
