Julie Horne, RN was born in Sweden. She began her career in cardiac surgery for children and adults, before she decided to pursue her passion in the field of aesthetics.
After working in Oslo, Norway for 11 years, she moved to Cape Town, South Africa, in February 2020.
Whilst in Oslo, Julie was based at one of Norway’s most prestigious cosmetic clinics for many years, where she performed treatments, encompassing all indications with dermal fillers and neurotoxins.
She is the owner of the Julie Horne Academy, where she trains aesthetic doctors and nurses, who travel from all corners of the world, to attend her internationally acclaimed and world famous “Lip Masterclass.”
Julie is often invited to share her unique and extremely sought after lip techniques at many international conferences, meetings and educational programmes. Since launching her signature lip treatment “Julie Horne Lips” in 2017, she has developed a huge fan-base amongst fellow practitioners and patients worldwide.
Even though, Julie’s main interest as a trainer involves lips, she is also passionate about training other practitioners in other indications.
Julie has participated in several international aesthetic congresses and meetings to always be up to date about the latest knowledge and trends in the aesthetic field. Being on several international faculties, has meant that she has been able to learn from some of the best aesthetic trainers in the world, which has led her to be a master within aesthetic injectables.
Being acknowledged as a master in the industry by her peers, has led to her being invited to lead several big aesthetic congresses worldwide. She has also done several training tours for Galderma worldwide.
As a Galderma Global Key Opinion Leader (KOL) and Local Mentor Trainer (LMT), she devotes a lot of her time to train other trainers in the aesthetic business.
Julie is also the owner of the Swiss Aesthetic Institute in Zurich, Switzerland together with the very skilled and successful Dr. Felix Bertram.
The Swiss Aesthetic Institute offers the highest standard of training with dermal fillers and neurotoxin from basic to master level. Read more about the Swiss Aesthetic Institute here https://swiss-aesthetic-institute.ch
She will devote a lot of her time training internationally and perform at international congresses in the future. Her own lip balm will also soon be on the market.
Amongst her numerous other accolades, Julie Horne was awarded the prestigious «Golden syringe» in 2019. This honour is only bestowed upon a few international injectors who have distinguished themselves in the industry, for their passion, knowledge and extra-ordinary talent, and it is thus, one of the most honorable and coveted prizes in the aesthetic industry.
“I see myself as an artist/sculptor, I’m just holding a syringe instead of a brush or a tool. It’s about having an aesthetic eye, see proportions, balance, potential, knowing the anatomy, having product knowledge and an experienced steady and delicate hand. But it’s not enough for me to be really good at lip treatments. My biggest challenge is to exterminate unnatural results by spreading my vision, passion, knowledge and techniques all around the world – Safety first and natural results ONLY!”
