We had a chance to interview the owner of Toronto’s number one medical spa. The One – Clinic of Aesthetics is owned by Shannon Valliant and she explains more about her rise to success right here on Verna Magazine.
What made you switch careers from nursing to aesthetics?
I switched into aesthetic nursing originally when a colleague suggested the field to me. I quickly became very passionate (some would have called it completely obsessed) about the art of injecting and facial anatomy. When I experienced the positive impact I was able to make on my patients by using my own hands, there was absolutely no going back.
When did you first become fascinated with skin care?
I fell in love with skincare when I started my first job as a nurse injector. The company introduced me to medical grade products and I attended training sessions surrounding skin health and anti-aging. Having no previous knowledge of this, It actually opened up a whole new world for me as a professional.
