Dr. Wen-Shan Sung
Doctor, adventurer and snowboarding junkie.
Dr Wen-Shan Sung (Dr Wen) is the medical director of the R Clinic. With extensive experience in aesthetic medicine and general dermatology, Dr Wen integrates mainstream medicine into the delivery of safe and advanced cosmetic medicine.
A skilled cosmetic physician with advanced training in all areas of injectable cosmetic medicine, Dr Wen’s areas of interest and expertise include personalised skin rejuvenation with medical-grade cosmeceuticals and non-surgical facelifts with advanced thread lifting methods.
In addition, Dr Wen is also the founder of Canberra’s first hair transplant centre specialising in follicular unit extraction. Having suffered from a hair loss condition (alopecia) himself, Dr Wen has developed a keen interest in hair loss treatments and dedicates his time and attention to hair loss procedures and techniques.
Dr Wen focuses on treating the face holistically for a harmonious and natural result, and he believes every patient should be treated with a safe, proven, medical approach tailored to their unique aesthetic needs. Sounds simple, but this approach takes passion and skill to achieve. Using advanced treatment techniques, Dr Wen is changing the way we think about cosmetic medicine, empowering his patients to celebrate their unique individuality to be the best version of themselves.
It’s Dr Wen’s belief that a well-considered treatment plan is essential to achieving the best outcome. That’s why every individual’s aesthetic journey starts with an extensive consultation and detailed assessment.
Outside work, Dr Wen indulges his love of adventure. In summer he’s a kitesurfing enthusiast who loves riding the big waves. In winter, he’s a snowboarding junkie – his ambition is to be able to do a 180 backflip the next time he hits the slopes.

“Life becomes busier as we’ve got older and every so often, we forget to look after ourselves. Patients seek our help as they no longer look the way they feel.
I’m dedicated to helping my patients rediscover their beauty and their own unique expression. When there’s an improvement in an individual’s skin quality and appearance, it’s often accompanied by a transformation in their confidence—which has far more of a positive impact on the person’s life than I ever imagined.
My forte is restoring a youthful but natural appearance so I’m most passionate about anti-ageing treatments—or what I prefer to call positive ageing treatments.
I’m really humbled to be in a profession where I can be part of that journey.”
