Nicole, Master Esthetician, Born in high park area, Toronto, Canada. Nicole was raised by her Slovakian family, particularly brought up by hergrandmother. Nicole remembers her grandmother as always looking her best, with her hair styled, her foulard tied perfectly and always following her skin care routine which provided her with that special glow and look of confidence. To Nicole, beautiful skin equals beautiful confidence.
Nicole credits her passion in starting her skincare journey to hergrandmother by entrenching in her the value of always striving to look better then the day before and the confidence that it instills.
Nicole’s passion for wanting to help people reach their best self was further solidified from her personal struggles with severecystic acne in her adolescence which sparked her interest in all things skin, “healthy glow.” In her struggles with acne, she was determined in finding the best skin care, treatments, and clinics in the GTA. She experimented with different products and metwith various dermatologists who unfortunately failed to help control her acne. In her persistent and continuous journey to better skin she finally landed on the expertise from a doctor at anacne clinic. Under his care, guidance, and expertise her acne was eliminated with a transformation from sever uneven skin and pigment to flawless, smooth skin. This was life changing for Nicole. It was because of this and her recollections of hergrandmother that she now knew that her calling in life was to be help others achieve their best self. Nicole has made it her Mission Statement to provide her clients with the best care and knowledge possible.
During this time Nicole was enrolled in University for Architecture but left the university to continue her education in medical Aesthetics. Now focused on growing her knowledge by gathering as much information and training as possible.

Sheri, Master Esthetician, I became an Esthetician in the mid 80’s back when it was a fairly new thing in Canada. I guess I kinda got in on the ground floor. I always knew I wanted to help people. My goal was to be a physiotherapist when I started grade 9, but by the end of high school the idea of getting into the beauty industry, especially in a way to help people with their skin concerns, appealed to me greatly.
By the time I was 21, I owned my own spa in London Ontario . In my spare time , I taught at the Elegance School of Esthetics for many years as well. I continued my education and took multiple courses over the years. When I moved to Toronto, almost 20 years ago, I knew I wanted to advance towards Medical Esthetics and Laser Technology. After graduating, I was fortunate enough to work at a medspa that continued to send me for advanced laser and Esthetics courses.
For the last 11 years I worked at the Toronto Dermatology Centre, under the guidance of several amazing dermatologists. This is where I learned about skin! This is where I learned my love for lasers, the amazing ability of skin regeneration, and the possibility of scar reduction, anti- aging and most importantly, how to help people maintain their beauty at home.
I am one of those people who chose a profession early in life, and it is everything I am. I write about skin, I read about lasers and technologies and new services that have an increased capacity to correct. It is one of my biggest passions. The others are my amazing daughter and running /fitness and of course my 17 year old dog!!
What is my philosophy? Well, I used to think that if there wasn’t something obvious to correct, then why bother? But I have come to the conclusion that what is important and very visible to the patient is so much more important than the degree to which it is visible to me. I choose to see my patient through their eyes, and I will research and create a plan to help them accomplish their desired look. As is with most things in life, there is often a path that needs to be travelled before the journey is complete. I believe that what I can do for my patient in the clinic is only as good as what they are doing for their skin at home. I take a little longer with my consults, I teach my patients and explain in detail everything to get them where they are going and most importantly, why and how my suggestions will work.
I am never going to be that person who pushes, I am not aggressive…… but I will always utilize my education and experience to be honest, trustworthy and proud of the work I do to keep my patients on the right path when it comes to their skin.
