Wafaa Karim

Owner, Beauty & Paramedical Specialist

Wafaa’s passion for skin health & body wellness is reflected in the variety of exclusive treatments available at Cronulla Skin Sanctuary. She is driven to provide advanced treatments that provide great results without being invasive.

Wafaa specialises in DMK Paramedical Skin Treatments, Endermologie fat & cellulite reduction & Laser Tattoo Removal. The desire to provide clients with the best service & results possible means ongoing education & a regular introduction of new technology & services to evolve with the needs of clients.

Wafaa's Story

Wafaa has been in the beauty industry since 1995 and since the beginning she has been driven by the love for helping people feel better about themselves. She has always gone above & beyond to educate her clients on ways to improve their overall skin & body health.

Prior to Cronulla Skin Sanctuary, Wafaa initiated & operated 2 previous beauty salons in Engadine & Gymea. She has always had a huge client following and been dubbed a guru in her field especially for her shared knowledge & magical healing hands in massage therapy, with many of her clients dating back to over 20 years.

Wafaa opened Cronulla Skin Sanctuary in September 2005 with a great vision of creating a beauty oasis that offered all the traditional beauty/spa style treatments alongside the advanced non-invasive 'results based' treatments utilising the most advanced DMK Paramedical skincare products & treatment protocols. This has always been Cronulla skin Sanctuary’s unique point of difference, even in the beginning.

Wafaa was attracted to that particular space as it was centrally located in a great beach side suburb, yet extremely private. Within 2 years, she found a gap for providing cellulite & body shaping treatments in an area where there are lots of health & body conscious people. She knew that Endermologie would be a fantastic addition to the results based treatments as it would provide a much needed service to help these people achieve body improvements not possible with diet & exercise alone. She also introduced Laser Tattoo Removal to the menu in 2012 due to the growing need for this treatment in the area.

Wafaa is extremely dedicated to a high level of ongoing education for herself & all her staff. She is always on the lookout for new treatments that can improve her clients' results and gets great satisfaction from helping them.

“Since childhood, I have suffered with reactive skin and eczema. After trying so many products and working with many skincare ranges over the years nothing seemed to work. I would end up with itchy, red skin and feeling miserable. I started working with DMK 6 years ago and after having treatments and using the products I noticed a visible improvement in my skin, it now feels calm and amazing. No more reactions and I can finally wear make up again which is great because I love my winged eyeliner!”
