Meet Our Aestheticians in NJ and NYC

Our Aestheticians work under the supervision of physicians certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Nancy Dugan, Aesthetician

Our Medi-Spa Director, Nancy Dugan, was one of the first Medical Aestheticians in the country, with nearly 40 years of experience providing skin care and ancillary services to cosmetic and reconstructive patients. Nancy is licensed in both NY and NJ in Cosmetology and Aesthetics. She is also licensed by the NJ State Board of Permanent Cosmetics and has practiced Micropigmentation since 1992. An instructor of skin care techniques and makeup design, she has trained hundreds of aestheticians and makeup artists over her 40 year career.

The majority of Nancy’s training is the result of thousands of hours of private tutelage from Europe’s best teachers in Austria, Germany, and France. In addition to her many contributions to trade publications, she was a contributing author to the medical textbook Principles and Practice of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery for her approach to post-surgical illusionary makeup techniques. Nancy is also featured in the Standard Textbook of Cosmetology for her approach to paramedical camouflage therapy and clinical cosmetology, which is used around the world for professional cosmetology training.
