Nathan & George
The goal of Skinterviews is to show our industry leaders (doctors, dermatologists, plastic surgeons, nurses, educators etc.) in a personal light. We want to get to know the name that precedes the MD title. We are all facing uncertain times with COVID-19 and our amazing industry has been hit, just like many others, but this is a way to bring us together and humanize what many think to be vain. We want to get to know YOU.
Staying true to our brand we want to hear personal stories. The stories we so often leave out in a
professional setting. We want to personalize your brand and get to know the life that shaped and led you to your profession. We also would love to highlight any charities or initiatives you’re involved with etc.
Season 2 comes to viewers with an entire new look and feel. We never thought that a second season was possible, however after over 80,000 views in season 1 and the incredible sponsoring from FullScript season 2 became a reality and is here to showcase many more industry greats.

Born and raised in Canada, with an Italian/Argentinian background. I’m a big time science geek who has the most profound love and admiration for all things shoes. I’ve been actively involved in this industry for over 20 years, as an educator, in sales and management with a heavier focus on plastic surgery strategies and curriculum development. I LOVE writing. I have written feature articles in Inside Fitness Magazine where I take readers into the surgical room and team up with top notch surgeons and cosmetic enhancement specialists to discuss surgical and non-surgical procedures. Though I’m filled with gratitude each day to be doing what I absolutely love, nothing tops being a mom of my two boys. My husband and I got married in May 2010, and we have our 2 boys, Adrian (8) and Luca (4), as well as our fur baby, Brooklyn who is a French bulldog. I am a total bookworm, I love cycling and gatherings with family and friends, eating good food and drinking good wine (nothing like an Argentinian Malbec!) – which I miss so much since Covid! My boys are my biggest accomplishment in life. I don’t think anything can ever beat that.

San Fran where I now have 4 patents on Hepatitis C Virus.
https://patents.justia.com/inventor/kassandra-lepack and then decided to pivot my knowledge outside of the lab into sales! I moved to Calgary where I was no longer “making drugs” but “selling them” as a pharmaceutical rep. Climbed my up to manage part of Canada and then got a call from Candela to join their organization where I have never looked back!

I was introduced to this industry when I started working with my Mom whom owned a very successful spa in Cambridge. I was very hesitant as I didn't know anything about spa, lasers, products... however, I always had the ability to sell! Clearly she saw that too. Honestly, I think that's why she asked me to work for her! Within a couple months, she wanted to introduce medical devices. We did some research and decided to buy into Candela devices. I had no interest at ALL in working with the systems until our trainer arrived. Long story short, everything fell into place during training, and I was hooked, I was obsessed learning about the technology! Now, eight years later, I train on 23 different devices, travelled NA and have had the pleasure of training over 600 accounts ranging from renown Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists, Nurses, and MediSpa owners... this will always be my passion!!
Dr. Ben Wiese
Dr. Ben Wiese believes in the saying “prevention is better than cure,” specifically as it relates to skin cancer.

It was working in oncology and being on call for plastic surgery where he realized that he had a particular interest in skin cancer.

In 2014, Dr. Ben Wiese began taking dermoscopy and primary care skin cancer courses at the Universities of Cardiff and Queensland. Upon completion, and due to the high demand, he decided to open up his services and began screening and treating patients for skin cancer, exclusively.
As a physician with special interest in skin cancer, Dr. Ben Wiese is a firm believer that “prevention is better than cure”. Having worked as a family physician for over a decade, Dr. Wiese’s approach is more proactive than reactive. Rather than look at the sporadic skin lesion, he takes the time to look over the body’s fastest growing organ, your skin. His aim is to become a true expert in the field of skin cancer and dermoscopy. Ultimately, Dr. Wiese hopes to contribute to skin cancer awareness through research, teaching and being a strong advocate for prevention. In order to continue his education, Dr. Ben Wiese is currently attaining his Master’s Degree in Skin Cancer from The University of Queensland in Australia.

Leisa (pronounced Lisa)
Her name is Leisa with an “e” – the “e” is extra – just like her, and she is a beauty addict.
She says while it feels like she’s been in the beauty industry for what feels like 187 years, it’s only been 25, when she started out in 1995 as a hair stylist.
Since then, she’s done everything from shooting lasers to co-creating educational curriculums and almost everything in between.
Throughout her career, she has gleaned much knowledge and met so many wonderful people, but advises that dealing with quite a few real A-holes has made her into the tough-as-nails beauty boss she is today.
She has done her time in the aesthetic trenches, learning as much as she possibly could, and now she feels it's time to pay it forward with stories of her 25 years of experience with other like-minded individuals in hopes to inspire, motivate, and maybe make you smile.
She is currently an Aesthetic Business Partner for Galderma Canada and has a book coming out in 2021.
She wants you to Stay Focused & Stay Fabulous! She is Leisa Krauss aka: “The Bitch’n Beautician”
