As an esthetic nurse specializing in cosmetic injectable for over 9 years, and being in the medical cosmetic industry for the past 14 years, I am very passionate about my work. Cosmetic injectables is my focus and my specialty -it's all I do.

Robyn Vandermoor shares the deeply meaningful context for her work in facial esthetics, her exclusive profession since 2003 :
"It broke my heart as a young adult, to read an article about a teen who unthinkably committed suicide-because of constant bullying over severe facial acne. His appearance led to him taking his own life? This should never have happened. I remember thinking that this tragedy was so easily preventable, I decided to pursue medical esthetics, which in turn lead to me completing a nursing program specializing in esthetics."

My Approach to Enhancing your Face

I meticulously study each and every client's individual concerns, facial anatomy, structure, facial movement, shadows, and contours of the face. With careful examination I can identify small imperfections and correct them in a soft and natural way to achieve the desired outcome.

Every face is unique and presents a different challenge. I then develop a treatment plan that utilizes an array of injectable techniques and tools. I believe beauty needs to be delicately enhanced or restored; and more often, enhancing attractive facial features is about minimizing imperfections, slight enhancements and creating smooth transitions and appealing contours.

After a detailed discussion and understanding of your goals, I use my artistic eye to envision, then develop, a treatment plan. More often than not the plan is a work in progress that we can build on over time. I apply my techniques artfully- where and how the injections need to be meticulously placed to achieve the best esthetic outcome with optimal results.

I believe most clients want an injector whose aesthetic views compliment your own and an injector who can help you work towards meeting your beauty goals. It's extremely important to me that each client receives the appropriate time during their consultation and treatment, so we can thoroughly discuss the details and take the time that is needed.

I love to help people look and feel the best version of themselves. However, what I truly share with my clients, beyond my experience, is the heart and soul that I pour into my work which reflects my love and passion for what I do.

"I truly believe the best way for all clients, both experienced and new, to really grasp what we're doing is through education. I'm not selling, I'm educating. I show my first time Botox clients the muscles of the face, for example, so they clearly understand how Botox works. Again, patient safety is the goal and education and informed choice is the means. Hand-holding is important; "intellect-holding" is just as important."

As a testament to Robyn's uncommon skill, the manufacturer of the industry's leading injectable filler chose Robyn's work to be featured in a national campaign for their product, selecting her client's Before/After profile from cosmetic clinics nationwide.

By continually upgrading her professional skills, Robyn has earned a devoted following of Toronto's more discerning clients, who appreciate her gentle touch and thoughtfully reasoned approach to their goals.
