Esther completed her Ph.D. programme in 2012. Her area of interest being Dermatology, she currently works at the Department of Dermato-Allergology at Gentofte Hospital in Copenhagen, Denmark. Since childhood, Esther has had an immense interest in science and health, so medicine was a very natural choice for her. However, she also loved drawing, art and design. She won several art and science prizes and contemplated career possibilities that could combine both passions. For a long time her passion for science/health and art/drawing, seemed like two worlds apart that could not merge. It was frustrating at times, as she missed one without the other! The spa and wellness world however, is truly a merge of medical interventions used to enhance customers’ aesthetic desires. Also being of African and European descent herself, her interest and knowledge of different skin types is expansive. Esther is a member of AAAM, American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine, and is also certified by the Danish Health Authority as an Aesthetic Medical Practitioner. For several years, Esther has worked to correct and enhances customers’ natural beauty using safe medical techniques that require considerable artistic/aesthetic and medical ability. She is also currently involved in research of new aesthetic medical procedures. So her passion for art and medicine finally merged in Aesthetic Medicine.
