Shanika’s passion for cosmetology and aesthetic medicine was inspired by her mother Ramani Arsecularatne, a veteran in non-invasive cosmetic procedures and a leading beautician in Sri Lanka with over 25 years of experience.

Her aspiration to offer world-class, effective non-invasive skincare – a solution to every form of skin, hair and body concerns- has driven her to travel the work, explore a. study the different types of procedures and equipment, as well as diverse requirements of skin and hair types based on ethnicity.

After her Medical Degree, Shanika continued to specialize in aesthetic medicine and became the youngest Sri Lankan to be qualified as a cosmetologist at the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicines. Shanika followed her dream to establish the Christell Skin Clinic in Colombo in 2014.

At Christell Skin Clinic, Shanika and her team provides individualized skin, hair and body procedures; each treatment plan is designed to effectively meet and exceed the individual needs, physiological and psychological, and provide a complete solution for each client.

Dr Shanika Arsecularatne presently practices at her own clinic, located in Bambalapitiya, a commercial and residential suburb of Colombo, and at Durdans Hospital, one of the largest and oldest private hospitals in Colombo, as a consultant for its cosmetic care unit.
