After graduating from the University of Toronto’s medical school with training in internal medicine and a specialization in dermatology, Dr. Lisa Kellett decided she wanted to raise the bar on effective skin-care for both men and women. She went on to study cutaneous laser surgery at Harvard and later founded DLK on Avenue. In addition to providing exceptional service to her patients, Dr. Kellett also knows the importance of giving back. For this reason she founded DLK Cares, an initiative with Sick Kids Hospital set up to repair the faces of scarred children at no cost to their families.
In 2011, Dr. Kellett feels better equipped to tackle the signs of aging than ever before. She credits this to taking a different approach than others in her field. “It’s about redefining expectations,” she explains, “We help our patients look more rested and refreshed without looking like they’ve done anything. We enhance their own strengths aesthetically rather than creating a cookie cutter idea of beauty.”
In 2012, DLK on Avenue will be offering more VIP services. This will increase the accessibility of the clinic for high-profile, out-of-town patients by providing off-site consultations. DLK on Avenue will also be offering new services, including non-surgical face tightening and non-surgical face lifts. All of these new services help Dr. Kellett achieve the goal of helping her patients look great from the inside out. “There’s an increased confidence and security that comes with getting older,” she says, “Now we can help you match that feeling to the outside.”
