Most definitions of Sanctum relate to a ‘sacred place’ or a ‘private place.’ Let's take you behind the door of Sanctum on Sandy Bay Road in Hobart. It’s a medical aesthetics practice offering leading-edge technology, but it's also a story of women in the work force, of international trends, of art meeting science and of ageing intelligently.
WOMEN IN THE WORKFORCE
Little wonder Sanctum draws many mothers and daughters. After all, founder Dr. Asha Ram and daughter Dr. Clair McCartney lead a female-strong team at Sanctum. The approachable professionals include doctors, nurses and skin therapists carefully hand picked for this ever-changing field of medicine. At Sanctum, they understand women. They are mothers, daughters and sisters themselves. The clinical team of thirteen comprise of twelve women and Dr. Ben Peachey completes the team, a welcome male for those seeking a man's touch. Don't like that tattoo you got twelve years ago? Dr. Ben can take care of that.
Sanctum may sit at the bottom of the world, but is highly connected to this swiftly-changing industry on a global scale. In the last 12 months alone, staff have touched down in London, Italy and Santorini, returning to Hobart with knowledge and techniques untapped in Australia. Indeed, Dr. McCartney is off to Bangkok for an international conference as we type. It's this commitment to excellence and thirst for knowledge that positions Sanctum as a thought leader.
ART & SCIENCE
At Sanctum, art and science is one. Walk into their waiting room and you'll understand. It's more art gallery than doctor's patient wait-zone. Designer furniture, international art works, a gentle flickering flame and worldly books ignite the imagination. Attention to detail is afforded through artful care, the same way these professionals tend to your skin. Lines, contours, beauty, colour, form, precision - there is no separation between art and science here. Sanctum is a space that invites comfort. A sanctuary few know is tucked away in the heart of Hobart.
“Your skin … it has to last you a lifetime. It just makes sense to look after it.”
At Sanctum, it's about ageing intelligently. It's about preventing future damage the same way one visits the dentist to ensure sound dental health. Ask them about epigenetics, find out about platelet rich plasma (PLP), talk to the approachable team about sclerotherapy for varicose veins or IPL treatments. They'll share with you the latest.
Sanctum isn’t just for the women – it's a favourite of men in the know. Find out what treatments and packages are available by visiting www.sanctum.com.
