Nurses

Victoria Chan, Dermatology Nurse

Victoria comes from a background of primary care, organ and tissue donation, dermatology and plastic surgery. In addition, she obtained her Medical Esthetics Practitioner certification and keeps up to date with concurrent dermatology issues and treatments. She enjoys working with patients and answering their questions and concerns, ensuring they receive the best care possible at Refine.

Victoria’s care philosophy is to value her clients’ needs while continuously practicing altruism. When she’s not at the clinic, she loves to read, go to the gym, try new restaurants, spend time with her partner and take care of her two cats.

Victoria's skin care tip: Wash your face with room temperature water (this protects your skin from irritation and dryness) and apply your serums and moisturizer on damp skin to increase product absorption.

Ashley Hare, Dermatology Nurse

Ashley comes from a background of neurology, mental health, dermatology, and pathology. She also completed her certificate program for community health studies and microbiology. She enjoys working with clients and guiding them through their medical journey, making sure they receive the best of care at Refine.

Her care philosophy is to always put her clients’ needs first, and to work within all aspects of the nursing scope. When Ashley is not at the clinic, she loves to volunteer at an animal rescue farm, spend time in the country, woodwork, and take care of her dog and bunnies.

Ashley's skin care tip: Avoid using harsh exfoliants like ground nut shells, pumice, and sand, which are damaging to the skin. Instead, try using a natural or chemical (with guidance) exfoliant depending on your skin type.
