About Us

Welcome to Esprit Medical Aesthetics, a dynamic business established by Dr. Trina Stewart in 2005.  Esprit Medical Aesthetics continues to evolve and grow and now boasts a comprehensive menu of both general and medical aesthetic services to combat aging and the negative repercussions of stressful, busy lives.  At Esprit, we aim to target the well known “3 D’s of aging”:  deterioration, descent and deflation of the face. The result is fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture changes, sagging skin and loss of volume. The sun also plays a role in deterioration of the skin and contributes to colour changes that may result in brown and red pigmentation.  Our well trained staff at Esprit can help you develop a plan to address all of your problem areas to achieve the best clinical and aesthetic results.
