Monica’s passion for dermatology and the overall medical aesthetics field started in a most unusual way. She was diagnosed with skin cancer in her early 20’s and as a result, she quickly became an ambassador for educating others on proper skin health and lifestyle habits. She is adamant in her belief that beautiful skin starts with healthy skin and she applies this principle to all aspects of her life.
After graduating from Nursing School in 2005, Monica began working at Crutchfield Dermatology, one of the most prestigious dermatology offices in the entire Midwest. Because this clinic houses both a conventional dermatology practice and a cosmetic practice, Monica gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in ALL aspects of skin health. She was able to work with thousands of patients as pursued both their functional and cosmetic skincare goals!
Wanting to embrace a new challenge, Monica enrolled in a Perioperative Program in 2010 and started working in the Operating Room at Fairview Ridges Hospital. This experience not only developed her skills as a registered nurse but also shaped her as a person. She felt immense compassion for each patient she worked with and was honored to be a part of each of their journeys to health and wellness. Additionally, to having worked in the surgical aspect of nursing, she also worked with several medical spas in the suburbs surrounding the Minneapolis Metro.
Today, Monica is thriving as an Advanced Injection Specialist owning her own MediSpa, proving to be both a leader among her peers and a client favorite within the south metro. ME Aesthetics is overseen by Dr. Dave Christianson, MD.
Monica’s specialties are in the Allergan, Galderma and Revance family of injectables. She loves that the versatility of these products allow her and her patients the freedom to choose the perfect treatment that fits their goals, lifestyle and budget! She enjoys mapping out plans that truly work with her patients’ lives and prides herself on providing exceptional education and natural results with her treatments.
Monica loves working with her patients to enhance the health and appearance of their skin. It is her goal to not only deliver patients the best results possible, but to do it with compassion, authenticity and a sense of fun!
