Growing up in the back of her mother’s Centre Salon had a huge influence on Michelle. As such, she’s been an Electrologist, Cosmetologist, Makeup Artist, Medical Aesthetician, and Advanced Laser Technician. By the age of 25, Michelle had successfully owned and operated two full service Aesthetic Studios.
After taking her Cosmetic Aesthetic knowledge as far one could, Michelle went on to study Laser Technology. Here, Michelle found her true calling – becoming an eventual expert in treating sun damage, wrinkles, acne, vascular (rosacea, telangiectasia) and pigmented lesions, scars, striae, skin cells that could potentially turn into actinic keratosis, unwanted facial and body hair, lax skin tightening, and body contouring.
Michelle enjoys spending time with her four children, husband and two step children, working out, travelling and, not surprisingly, creating a healthy change in the skin care regimes of Calgarians.
