— The Med-Surg Story —

When Erin Cooper, our founder, CEO, and experienced clinical trainer, began her career as an aesthetician 29 years ago, the professional scope and earning potential were limited. Determined to change how medical aesthetics professionals navigate their career paths, she founded Med-Surg Aesthetics and Laser Academy, offering programs for aspiring aestheticians whose goal is to get state licensure and  work in a medical setting, licensed aestheticians seeking laser certification and wanting to learn specialized skills specific to medical and surgical environments, and medical professionals who wish to transition from bedside to aesthetics.

As Med-Surg Academy grew, Erin realized there was more that needed to be done, so she partnered up with the Founder and CEO of Ageless Beauty and Wellness, Leslie Johnson, FNP-C to add another layer to the already robust training program making it an all-inclusive medical aesthetics curriculum. 

Leslie and Erin’s paths initially crossed at an industry event, and they knew they were meant to work together. The two shared a love of continuing education, a fearless draw to entrepreneurship, and a passion for exemplary patient care. Within a few short months, and a lot of Allen wrenches later, the doors were opened to Ageless Beauty and Wellness for services, and Med-Surg Aesthetics and Laser Academy for advanced medical aesthetics education. Sharing one beautiful space allowed for the introduction of the nation’s first ever medical aesthetics internship program to take flight. These sister companies are reinventing the standard of care in our industry from providing patients with an immersive experience unlike any other medical spa to medAestehtics, advanced cosmetic injectables, and laser training that is unparalleled. We invite you to be a part of our family.
