Can you share your inspiration for starting NEA Medical Aesthetics?
NEA Medical Aesthetic Clinic was truly a marriage of passion, inspiration and intellect. As a mother, a registered dietitian, and a philanthropist, I am a true believer of practicing what I preach, and like to use my professional expertise and lived experience, to make a difference in the lives of those around me. During the course of my life and career I have gained a deeper insight to the power of prevention, and how education, knowledge transfer, and building capacity in those around me can lead to empowerment, and the confidence to make a positive change. This synergy led me to open NEA Medical Aesthetic Clinic, as well as co-found a charity focusing on wellness, touching the lives of over 25,000 people. With over more than 20 years of volunteering, and working experience, I like to focus on seeking out local solutions that help people live healthier lives.
What treatments do you have in your clinic are you most excited about and why?
At NEA we offer so many great and unique treatments focusing on empowerment and self confidence. We believe in focusing on you, and your individual need, from the inside out. It’s hard to pick just a few treatments that I’m excited about, but if I had to pick my top three they would be – Trusculpt Body, using the truSculpt iD and truSculpt flex, supported with a Nutrition and full body Dexa. This is probably my favorite treatment, because it focuses on you, and self care. You can feel good about yourself! Up next is the Luzern Oxygen Facial. This is perfect for the dry, cold climate of Canada, and gives an infusion of nutrients and oxygen to the skin. This is my winter go to! And last, but not least, is microneedling combined with PRP. Microneedling is an amazing way to induce the production of collagen. Combined with PRP takes this treatment to the next level. This treatment helps to keep you skin looking young and radiant, while targeting fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, scarring and hyperpigmentation.
With skin being the largest organ in the body, nourishments starts from within. We understand the skin nutrition connection, and want to help you achieve the best skin ever. By eating the correct balance of foods, in combination with the recommended skin treatments, you will not only feed your health, but also your skin. Every program at NEA is customized to you, and focuses on Nutrition Enhanced Aesthetics
What’s in your makeup bag or on your bathroom counter?
My make up and bathroom counters are lifelines! Focusing on needs without clutter, by makeup bag always has ZO cleansing pads, allowing for a refreshing cleanse, and Glo Antioxidant Day Cream to protect my skin from the sun. My makeup essentials always include a bronzer, lip gloss, light foundation and eyeliner. Other items include safety pins, Bobby pins, an elastic, earrings, small misting bottle (for my curls), and small perfume. On my bathroom counter you’ll find my morning routine, bedtime routine and everything in between. Some of my faves? ZO Exfoliating Cleanser, ZO Daily Power Defense, ZO Growth Factor Serum, and the NUIT line by Luzern – luxury at night! Oh, and I can’t forget the Vitamin C. You will find another misting bottle, Kevin Murphy hair products, and my essential make-up go to’s, and few go to weekend masks!
Your makeup bag and bathroom counter are truly a reflection of your beauty routine. I prefer clean beauty, focusing maximum benefits with minimal products. That’s why choosing medical grade products that pride themselves in research are so important to me! My favourite lines are ZO Skin Health, Luzern, and Glo Skin Care.
