Elizabeth Canler, Spa Consultant

As one of DentaSpa's senior spa business consultants, Elizabeth brings more than 20 years of spa industry expertise to help dental practitioners incorporate a lucrative aesthetic business within their practice. Elizabeth is one of South Florida's most sought out aestheticians. For the past 5 years, she has owned Miami Skin Boutique & Spa, one of Miami's top luxury spas. In 2012, she was voted to have the best facials and Best of Spa's in Miami by Allure Magazine. Elizabeth began her journey by educating herself at Florida College of Natural Health in 1996 almost by accident, as she was at the time interested in becoming a massage therapist. Life had other plans for her, and as she toured the school and was taken through the skincare clinic, she immediately saw her calling and a better way to treat her ongoing issues with acne that dermatologists only seemed to mask and treat rather than dig down deeper into every pore the way facials do... and so her love of skin care and facials began. Elizabeth took control of her skin and many others by working in big name hotels and spa's like The Four Seasons & Delano on south beach. Once she realized that pampering hotel facials were not enough in treating problem skin, she worked in a few day spa's on south beach and Coral Gables, mastering the art of building a local clientele and working with top professional products found only in reputable day and med spa's. It was only natural for Elizabeth to then work for a renowned plastic surgeon in Aventura, at a time when Laser Hair Removal was just introduced and IPL treatments to treat sun spots, unwanted hair and scars. She was able to treat pre and post surgical skin through photo facials, microdermabrasion and oxygen facials that were all fairly new in the world of aesthetics. Elizabeth then went on to manage a very popular massage spa in Miami Beach, and helped implement skin care by creating a menu of different facials through their chosen skin care line Dermalogica. She did the same for a brand new med spa that opened on south beach where she brought in medical grade products along with make up and assisted in creating their website and list of services. Amidst her experience, she was also an educator for celebrity aesthetician Sonya Dakar of Beverly Hills, where she traveled extensively to exclusive resort spa's through out the south east region and the caribbean, training therapists on the products of Sonya Dakar and their protocols.

Elizabeth has zeroed in on effective products that bring results and sales. She has the ability to work within budgets assigned, based on the spa's needs and it's customer base. Her friendly personality, energy and enthusiasm for skincare is contagious and transmittable. Elizabeth is passionate about her consultant role at DentaSpa Seminars, where she has the opportunity to share her wealth of knowledge to help grow spa and aesthetics in dental practices worldwide.
