Certified Skin Guru / Owner

Susan Khalili

I was born to take care of people, I was born to treat people and to share my knowledge of skincare. I love beauty and what it does for women, the way they look at themselves in the mirror, how it can renew a fading self-confidence. Skincare that goes beyond the outside and shines from inside the soul. I’ve been treating clients in the Aesthetics industry for over 2 decades. Fresh, flawless, glowing skin is what I help clients achieve by teaching them how to take care of their skin, without being complicated. Beautiful skin doesn’t have to be difficult or tricky- with regular in-clinic treatments, and a solid at-home skincare regime, its within your reach.

I promise.

Since graduating from Elmcrest College of Applied Health Sciences and Spa Management in 1999, I have worked in the clinical skin care industry doing Aesthetics, alongside top Cosmetic Physicians in Toronto.  In 2012 I opened my first clinic, a state of the art full renovated luxury clinic attached to my residence.  I treated clients there for several

My career began as a cosmetic laser technician for LCI Lasercom, the first Canadian company to open a chain of clinics in Ontario and Quebec specializing strictly in Laser Hair Removal.

From 2001 – 2005, my skin care knowledge and passion ignited while working for Dr. L. Herman and renowned cosmetic surgeon Dr. Conrad. I owe my work ethic, high moral principals, and high standards in hygiene and professionalism to these two role models. My passion and skillset for skin landed me a teaching position at the Canadian Beauty College in Newmarket, where I taught Medical Aesthetics for one year.
