Amy Chalmers is an internationally qualified Cosmetic DermalTherapist and the founder of Natural Skin Solutions, Vancouver’s first Natural Cosmetic Medical Clinic. With her extensive background as a clinical trainer, health coach, product formulator, researcher and business consultant, she now specializes in developing and delivering natural alternatives to invasive and ablative cosmetic procedures.
Her latest treatment innovation, Skin Rehabilitation Programs combines years of experience with, medical skin needling, nutritional and bio-mimetic skincare to create a new and unique leading edge in skin rejuvenation procedures.
As the industries of medical aesthetics and beauty treatments begin to merge, and the lines between the two grow ever more blurred, there has arisen a strong need for practitioners to undergo formal education in order to provide safe and qualified service offerings in the cosmetic medical field.
It was Amy’s recognition of this need which led her to advance her education and training with one of the world’s top cosmetic dermal science programs.
Amy sought her education in Australia, where she undertook cosmetic medical studies at the Australasian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Science. During her time at the academy she was awarded high distinction while gaining internationally recognized, government accredited qualifications in the areas of Medical Skin Needling and Cosmeceutical Science.
Amy later worked in conjunction with the Australasian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Science as a practical trainer and a private tutor for industry professionals, nurses, clinic owners, and dermal therapists.
She has since trained at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition IIN and specializes in offering Health Coaching with a focus on Skin Rehabilitation Programs.
