There has been a lot of talk and focus lately, including a front-page article in our local newspaper, on the importance of training and certification among technicians that perform laser treatments and other cosmetic procedures – I couldn’t agree more! There have been too many instances of poor results, patient burns, and even worse as a result of unskilled and unsupervised employees administering these treatments. We have had many patients come in to see if we can “fix” what has been done to them at another facility.
We often focus on the latest and greatest lasers, procedures and treatments available to you – we love adopting treatments that are on the forefront and will provide our patients the best results possible. Equally, if not more important, though is our skilled, trained and certified team of aestheticians that spend countless hours training, studying and attending classes in order to provide best-in-class service and results to our patients.

I have always had a love of learning and knowledge and have continued to pursue this in my professional life and encourage this in my team. We attend as many classes, training sessions, seminars and conferences as possible. This dedication enables us to explore the latest trends and advances in anti-aging and continue to refine and develop our expertise in our field.
I have been a clinical trainer in the past, and am considered to be an advanced injector of Botox and dermal fillers, holding Black Diamond status with Allergan Pharmaceuticals.
