The Clinic for Dermatology and Wellness in Medford, OR is excited to announce the expansion of their expert team with Advanced Aesthetician Mikaela Ford.

“What sets me apart from other aesthetic practitioners is the willingness I have to learn and keep up with the newest and upcoming modalities,” says Mikaela.

The Clinic for Dermatology & Wellness is thrilled to welcome Mikaela Ford, an advanced aesthetician, to their team. Mikaela attended Rogue Community College in which she earned a general associate degree in basic studies before pursuing her passion for aesthetics. She first received her aesthetics certificate before pursuing the state’s rigorous Advanced Aestheticians licensure. Not all states recognize advanced aestheticians. In Oregon, this license can only be obtained after undergoing 500 hours of theory and practical education and a minimum of 110 procedures before passing a certified state board test through Oregon’s Health Licensing Office.

At The Clinic, Mikaela performs many advanced aesthetic procedures including body contouring with EMSCULPT NEO® and CoolSculpting®, microneedling with the RejuvaPen®, BBL® photofacials and laser hair removal, chemical peels, HydraFacial® and more.

“What sets me apart from other aesthetic practitioners is the willingness I have to learn and keep up with the newest and upcoming modalities,” says Mikaela. “I am passionate about understanding the best products for skin health and continuing to enhance my education in the newly advancing industry of aesthetics. I am inspired to stay current with the various modalities in order to customize treatments to cater to the cosmetic needs of my patients.”

In addition to Mikaela, The Clinic for Dermatology & Wellness is proud to have David Richardson, PA-C, on the team. David speaks both Spanish and English fluently. With an undergraduate degree in Spanish Language and Literature and a master’s degree in health sciences from the Duke University Physician Assistant program, David is uniquely qualified and passionate about working directly with patients to help them achieve optimal skin health and overall wellness.
