Training Aesthetic Professionals
Connie Brennan, APRN, AGNP-BC, PHN, CANS, CPSN, ISPAN-F, collaborates with medical providers to anticipate needs, meet demands and provide innovating thinking for the constantly changing aesthetic enhancement industry. Connie knows that nothing is more crucial to positive and safe aesthetic outcomes than making sure medical professionals are equipped with the latest knowledge and training. Dr. Richard H. Tholen, M.D., F.A.C.S. is the Medical Director for Aesthetic Enhancement Solutions. Dr. Tholen’s experienced blend of science, artistry, and innovation have made him one of the most sought-after breast, face, and body surgeons in the country.
Connie imparts a vast wealth of both knowledge and experience to her students with amazing energy. She led us through in-depth facial assessments and skilled us in the newest cannula techniques. I certainly am more confident in employing these tools in my own practice now. She was warm, gracious, and sprinkled humor throughout the entire training. Personally, I walked away from her session more passionate about my profession than ever! It was an honor to study, even if only briefly, under her tutelage. I truly hope I have the opportunity to do so again!
