Erin’s philosophy when it comes to aesthetics is to embrace the patient’s authentic appearance while maximizing facial optimization, thereby providing a result that is refined and customized considering the individual’s goals and features. “My passions converge combining medicine and aesthetics. From a young age, I always knew I would work in the medical field. I have always been fascinated with anatomy and physiology, and the aesthetics of all things ranging from the face to the interior design of a space. I have a sharp eye for detail, and the ability to understand the complexities of facial anatomy and rheology.”
