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. We have attended conferences with the leaders in our industry and have developed our best practices with consideration of what policies and safety protocols are in place at world renowned asethetics clinics.
Our friendly and professionally trained Skin Health Specialists are ready to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Our registered nurse and cosmetic injector, Kara, was 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 our staff. Dr. Brooks supports the continued professional development of our nurses at conferences, including Plastic Surgeon Mauricio De Maio’s MD Codes, Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist examination at ISPAN (the International Society of Plastic Surgery & Aesethetic Nurses) as a compliment to his instruction. Dr. Brooks has trained with nationally recognized expert injectors including Calgary’s Dr. Kent Remington (dermatology), Montreal’s Dr. Arthur Swift (plastic surgery) and Dr. Sebastian Cotofana (anatomy). Lifelong learning is something we appreciate and are committed to.
Our certified aesthetician & advanced laser technician, Dalyce, joined the group in Spring 2018 and with the addition of Candela’s Gentle Max Pro Laser she began offering 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 facial treatments to target acne scarring, melasma, & overall sun damage and the Zoom hand piece for dark spot & tattoo removal. Dalyce has attended multiple advanced laser training seminars; she is capable of offering a wide range of treatment plans. We can’t wait for you to see her results for yourself!
A second certified aesthetician, Sara, specializing in microblading eyebrows joined the team in Fall 2018. Sara continued her training to become certified in HydraFacial, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, micro-needling, and paramedical stretch mark & scar camouflage.
To keep up with the phone and over double the number of people seen each day, in Fall 2018, we hired Dena. Dena has over 15 years of experience and it shows. You will love chatting with her on the phone or in person.
Our third certified aesthetician, Amanda, joined our crew in August 2020. Amanda incorporates Hungarian massage techniques in her luxury medical facials. Under direction of Dr. Brooks she offers our patients Morpheus8 treatments (radio-frequency with micro-needling) for skin tightening. With over 9 years of experience she has a vast knowledge of medical skin care ingredients and their uses.
In August of 2021 we welcomed a second aesthetic nurse, Kelsey. Kelsey took both the Botox Course & Filler Course training in Calgary with Dr. Andrew Dargie. Kelsey was eager to join a plastic surgery practice where she can further her aesthetic training with experienced colleagues.
Tenille accepted a position as receptionist and medical office assistant in October 2021. She is dedicated to professionalism and kindness when helping our patients and we are confident you will feel taken care of.
The 9 of us on staff simply love what we do.
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 Facial skin tightening vs Face lift? Before spending thousands on filler, maybe Dr. Brooks will explain a series of skin tightening treatments or a face lift is the only way to achieve certain results.
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.
We offer a wide range of services including; Botox Treatments for: forehead lines, crow’s feet, glabella/angry lines, baby botox for under eyes, bunny lines, bruxism/teeth clenching or grinding, migraines, as well as Medical Grade Facials, HydraFacials, Microdermabrasion, Laser Hair Removal Treatments with the GMax Pro, Laser Tattoo Removal with the PicoWay, effective facial laser treatments with the PicoWay Resolve, Dermal Fillers like: lip filler, cheek filler, jaw filler, under eye filler/tear trough filler, marionette line filler (for frown lines), nasal labial fold filler, temple filler, Acne Treatments, Chemical Peels, Medical Grade Skin Care Products by Alumier MD, Skin Medica, and ZO Skin Health. Our medical grade services plus at home treatments like face masks, extend the benefits of your facials long after you leave our clinic. We are dedicated to professional service and hope you protect your investment with sunscreen every day.
We hope to see you soon – let’s get glowing!
