Celebrating our 15th year in business we are eager to provide the best in personal service. As 2017 comes to a close and we look to a new year of innovative products and services, I am excited to present a team of professionals that are dedicated to serving you with the highest standard of skill, knowledge, care, and attention.
It is said that you are the summation of the five people with whom you surround yourself. I am proud to be surrounded by these professionals.
Michelle Bourque - Two words come to mind when describing this girl: “Gem” and “Superstar”. I have had the pleasure of knowing Michelle for 8 years. She has worked alongside me in the early days of Thermae and has recently joined our team full time as Clinic Manager.
In addition to her sparkling personality and CHARGE IT attitude, Michelle has a long list of educational achievements including Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Advanced Coaching Certification Level A & B from Coaching Association of Canada, Certificate of Nutrition for Healthy Lifestyles from SAIT, Communications/Conflict Resolution and Negotiation Training, Suicide Intervention Skills, and Certification in Cosmetic Laser Treatments.
In other words, Michelle can solve all your personal and work problems, provide relationship counseling, talk you off the ledge, help you eat right, train you for a marathon, and laser your bikini. In need of a makeover? Michelle also happens to be a talented makeup artist.
Natalie Huffman – We recently celebrated Natalie’s one year anniversary with Thermae, and what a year it’s been! Since joining our team in September 2016, Natalie has been nothing short of amazing. A true expression of inner and outer beauty, she comes into work every day with integrity, sincerity, and a true passion for her craft.
Natalie holds a Bachelors Degree in Nursing from the University of Alberta and has been mastering the art of injectables for the past five years. As a Registered Nurse, Natalie’s care and attention to detail during the injection process brings huge satisfaction to many of her loyal clients. The phrase I hear most from clients who have treatments with Natalie is: “She’s amazing! I send all my friends to her.”
We also share similar values that an ongoing upgrading of skills and knowledge is key to being a successful cosmetic injector. This year we learned how to provide a non-surgical facelift using injectables at the Allergan Toronto Symposium with Dr. Mauricio de Maio, and later attended the Teoxane Event for Advanced Injectors.
Lauren Davies - With her larger than life smile, our little Lauren is a big presence on our team, but she is more than just a pretty face with a bubbly personality. She has an extensive background of experience and education in advanced aesthetics. Lauren received advanced technical training from Delmar college, including light therapy, microcurrent, and microdermabrasion. After completing the medical aesthetics program at Delmar College, Lauren continued advanced training in IPL systems, chemical peels, micro needling and RF skin tightening. She received her tattooing certificate from the Arizona Institute for Micropigmentation, attended Shades and Strokes in Las Vegas, learned scalp pigmentation, microblading and color theory at American Institute of Intradermal Cosmetics. Lauren has committed herself to continuous development and learning the newest techniques and advancements in her field. As recently as last weekend she completed yet another course at Tebori Academy.
In addition to eyeliner, lip, and areola tattooing, Lauren is a master eyebrow artist. Check out her eyebrow before and after photos on Instagram at browsbylauren. This past year, Lauren attended Coolsculpting University in Pleasanton, California, receiving her certificate as a Coolsculpting graduate.
Lauren shares my value of maintaining a healthy lifestyle to maintain beauty from the inside out. I admire young women who take care of their health and learn to balance their hormones with diet, exercise, and proper sleep.
Shelley Wakeham - Shelley is an accomplished medical aesthetician with a rich and extensive background. After graduating from the University of Calgary with her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing, she began her lifelong career in facial aesthetics and cosmetic injectables.
Shelley shares my passion for improving and perfecting injectable techniques. Our conversations at work always include our latest technique or product discovery and how it brings the best results for our clients.
Dr. Belle Hsiao-Yuan Su- Dr. Su is new to Thermae this year and brings extensive medical expertise to the team. She received her certification in Family Medicine from the University of Calgary in 2016 and currently practices Family Medicine here in Calgary. Medical Aesthetics was always an area of interest for Dr. Su, and after completing her training for Botox and Dermal Fillers in October of 2016, she began her career in the aesthetics field and her passion and love for the industry continues to grow.
Hannah Arcega - That’s me! Graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Calgary launched my nursing career, first in Pediatric ICU at Alberta Children's Hospital for ten years, followed by 5 years in Dermatology. In 2002, I opened Thermae Advanced Aesthetics.
I have had the pleasure of treating thousands of clients and helping them maintain their beautiful appearance for fifteen years. I’m very grateful for the opportunity to continue seeing clients that have been with us for several years. Thank you for trusting us to bring you the best in advanced aesthetics.
