WHAT WE’RE ABOUT AND HOW WE BEGAN:
At Essentials Medi-Spa all services are approved by plastic surgeon, Dr. Trevor Brooks. He also personally selected the products we sell, from medical grade sunscreen to scar cream. Dr. Brooks ensures all of the technology, services and treatment techniques at our medi-spa are to the standards expected of a plastic surgery clinic.
The clinic started when Dr. Brooks and his wife, Chelsea, moved to Medicine Hat in 2014. Once the plastic surgery portion of the clinic was running smoothly they opted to slowly expand. Essentials Medi- Spa is the result of years of pre-planning and research into best practices in place at other asethetics clinics.
What is unique to our medi-spa is that the specialist may be consulted whenever the nurse or aesthetician might have a concern. Should a mole be lasered? Dr. Brooks will let you know if it is a bad idea, he sees thousands of skin cancers each year. Facial filler vs Face lift? Before spending thousands on filler, maybe Dr. Brooks will explain a face lift is the only way to achieve certain results and he can refer you to the right surgeon for the job. Botox vs Laser facial rejuvenation? Fine lines around the mouth can be treated in many ways. Dr. Brooks and the whole staff want you see improvements from the start, so we won’t suggest something that isn’t the best starting point.
Our friendly and professionally trained Skin Health Specialists are ready to help you achieve the aesthetic goals you desire.
Two cosmetic/registered nurse injectors: Kara & Amanda were the first to join our team in Spring 2017. In the cosmetic aesthetics industry it is rare that a nurse injector may receive anatomy training and direction for injection techniques from a specialist plastic surgeon. Most cosmetic injectors receive their training from weekend or one day seminars, but Dr. Brooks wanted to be 100% confident in the skills and knowledge of the nurses on our staff, so he trained them himself and has included their continued professional development at conferences, including MD Codes and Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist seminars/examination at ISPAN (the International Society of Plastic Surgery & Aesethetic Nurses) as a compliment to his instruction.
Our certified aesthetician & laser technician, Dalyce, joined the group in Spring 2018 and with the addition of Candela’s Gentle Max Pro Laser she began offering gold standard laser hair removal, laser spider-vein removal, sun spot removal, photofacials, and Alumier MD chemical peels. The PicoWay laser completed her arsenal in Spring 2019. Dalyce runs the picosecond Resolve hand piece for laser face treatments to target acne scarring & melasma, and the Zoom hand piece for dark spot & tattoo removal. 3 Resolve Full Face treatments, with minimal downtime, are equivalent to the results of the more ablative C02 lasers which require days off for patient recovery. Candela is a trusted laser company with outstanding national & international reviews. We can’t wait for you to see their results for yourself!
A second certified aesthetician, Sara, specializing in micro-blading joined the team in Fall 2018. The city’s brow game immediately had higher standards and she continued her training to become a certified in HydraFacial, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning.
To keep up with the phone and over double the number of people seen each day, in Fall 2018, we invited in a second receptionist/medical office assistant, Dena.
