An inner beauty exists in almost everyone, and it gives us strength and confidence. But we don’t always see that strong, confident person when we look in the mirror.
It could be due to the natural aging process – experience lines around the eyes and mouth. Or perhaps stress or an accident have altered the way you look.
“A lot of people feel young and beautiful, but they really don’t like the way they look,” explains Registered Nurse Christine Bui, owner of Enduring Beauty. “My goal is to make their appearance match their inner selves.”
It begins with a complimentary consultation where Christine delves deep into her clients’ thoughts about themselves. She’ll ask pertinent questions, including “what do you see when you look in the mirror?” and “how do you feel about yourself?”
Getting to the bottom of the emotional barrel can help the physical treatment plans.
“I want to really understand each and every person I am giving aesthetic care to,” says Christine, a Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist. “We also will discuss the natural aging process and appropriate treatment plans. Not every client has the same needs, and not every person needs work done.”
Christine has over 25 years’ experience as a nurse, including working in hospitals and as a certified community health nurse. She has been in the aesthetic field since 2005, beginning her journey working with plastic surgeons; as well as attending extensive training in the specialized areas of injectables, skincare, and lasers.
With those skills and knowledge in hand, in 2016 Christine opened Enduring Beauty in Durham. This year, the Port Carling location opened its doors.
Christine has volunteered her time to support her community, and she plans to do the same now that Enduring Beauty has become a part of the Port Carling landscape.
Visits with Christine are by appointment only to protect the privacy of her clients. As well, having only one client visit at a time allows for a true boutique experience in the clinic.
“You get me throughout the process, which gives my clients a continuity of care not always seen in this business,” she says. “It gives them comfort, while I help them refresh and feel better about themselves.”
