Integrity of the skin is vital to our good health and well-being. The integrity of your treatment specialist is also vital to insure that you are entrusting your skins treatment to a trained and certified professional with an extensive health care background. At SKinTEGRITY, we don’t have your treatment needs merely evaluated and designed by the medical professional and then a technician carries out the treatment itself. At SKinTEGRITY, ALL treatments are evaluated, designed and carried out or supervised by medically trained professionals.
Everyone’s skin is unique. Therefore, everyone’s needs, when it comes to their skin’s appearance, is unique. Darlene and her staff will take all of the time you need to go over your goals and desires for your treatment, then develop a plan that suits those goals and desires as well as your time frames and budget. A mother and a nurse as well as having a 35 year background coaching hundreds of young men and women in the performance sports field, Darlene’s philosophy puts the level of care she provides as her top priority.
Darlene was born and raised in Nanaimo and graduated with multiple scholarships in the science field. Darlene graduated from the Royal Jubilee Hospital School of Registered Nursing and UVIC in the late 1980"s. She then went on to specialize in Obstetrics at Camosen College and enjoyed an 18 year career working in varied areas of hospital nursing. She worked at not only Royal Jubilee Hospital but also Victoria General, the Richmond General and Women's Grace Hospital in Vancouver. She then moved to Toronto and worked as a float RN at many Toronto area Hospitals where she became experienced in varied fields including obstetrics, gynecology, oncology, orthopedics, dermatology and geriatrics and emergency. When Darlene retired from hospital nursing, she took a coaching position in France and the USA training world level athletes in performance sports. This experience charged her with keeping athletes bodies in their top condition for international competition. Darlene then moved back to her hometown in Nanaimo with her family. She had a desire to continue to utilize her medical background and and, after much consideration and research as to what arm of medicine would suit her best, became a physician certified laser photo-therapist in order to offer treatments for those who wanted to improve their skin and body health and appearance. She started her laser clinic “SKinTEGRITY CosMedical Laser Skin and Body Solutions” in 2011. Since then her practice has grown to have treated patients from not only Nanaimo and Vancouver Island but from throughout BC and North America, many who have returned even years later to continue to utilize the skills she has perfected at SKinTEGRITY. Her ethics and integrity are her solid base on which she has built her reputation.
