MEET DENISE KENNELLY

Medical Esthetic Practitioner, RPN

Hello, my name is Denise Kennelly and I am a Medical Esthetic Practitioner, Registered Practical Nurse, wife, and Mother of 3 adult children.

As a Registered Practical Nurse I have worked in many areas, Pediatrics, Phlebotomy, Plastic Surgery, Cardiology and Homecare, then, with a passion, I found Medical Esthetics!

I completed my training for Medical Esthetic Practitioner at Dr. Martin’s Training Centre in Barrie, Ontario, where Physicians and Nurses travel from all around to world to train in this field.

During my education there, I received certification for Acid Filler Treatments (Restylane), Neuromodulator Cosmetics (Botox, Xeomin and Dysport), and Botox for Hyperhidrosis, as well as Sclerotherapy Treatments (for spider and reticular veins) In the fall of 2018 I completed a course on Microblading, and have actively pleased my clients with pigmented enhanced eye brows due to lack of, or nonexistent natural brows. I am thrilled and excited to join the team at Ella & Duke, where the atmosphere is professional, positive, relaxing, friendly and where there is a service for everyone to enjoy!


MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling stimulates the body’s own natural collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, skin laxity and scarring. It has proven to be especially beneficial in treating acne scars and improving the skin’s texture, tone and color.

DERMAL FILLER: JUVEDERM

Youthful skin is smooth and elastic because it contains a lot of hyaluronic acid. As we mature, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin gradually diminishes. When fillers are injected under the surface of the skin, the gel mimics the naturally occurring substance by adding volume to the skin and smooths out lines on the face.

BOTOX FOR HYPERHIYDROSIS

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. It refers to any abnormal sweating, such as sweating when it’s not hot. People who sweat excessively often soak through their clothing or drip sweat. Regular antiperspirants don’t work well for those with this condition.

Botox injections are a new treatment option for people with hyperhidrosis. You may be a candidate for Botox if your sweating fails to improve with prescription antiperspirants. Botox has been FDA-approved for people who sweat excessively from their underarms.

Botox works by blocking the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands. Normally, your nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. This is how your body automatically cools itself. In people with hyperhidrosis, however, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive.

When you receive Botox injections directly into the area of your body that commonly sweats, your overactive nerves are essentially paralyzed. When your nerves can’t signal your sweat glands, you don’t sweat. However, Botox only prevents sweating in the specific area where it’s injected.

NEUROMODULATORS: BOTOX AND XEOMIN

“Botox” is the term which is most frequently used to describe neuromodulators, but in fact, Botox® is just one of three brands (Botox®, Xeomin® and Dysport®) approved by Health Canada to treat wrinkles. Neuromodulators are actually purified proteins created from a naturally occurring bacterium similar to the process in which penicillin is made. The medication is injected in tiny doses in order to relax muscles.

When treated with neuromodulators (such as Botox®, Xeomin® & Dysport®), a tiny amount of the product is injected into one or more of the dozens of muscles that control facial expression. These purified proteins work by blocking the nerve impulse from reaching specific muscles, causing the muscle to relax and the wrinkle to fade.
