The vision of Dr. Sarah Kennea

Team pic in colour

Whistler Medical Aesthetics in unlike any other medical clinic you will have visited.  This is a space that embraces the amazing natural environment that is Whistler. A space that feels instantly safe, warm, friendly, and unpretentious. Dr. Kennea’s vision is to destigmatize aesthetics, making it accessible and natural, and as far from the glitzy glam of Hollywood as possible; Even though we have Hollywood A listers travel to see us for treatments.  We want our patients to know that’s it’s ok to feel good about wanting to look your best.  

Our comprehensive focus on balance and harmony has been shaped by the natural beauty that surrounds our Whistler practice, and the needs of our patients and their stories. 

Our team is forged from individuals who embrace this wholly. Individuals who have made the Sea to Sky corridor their home. Individuals who have a passion for people. They are mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, wives and husbands we are so very proud to call our family.

A note from Dr Kennea: 

“People are as unique as their motivation to seek treatment. Our approach focuses on how patients want to feel as a whole, instead of chasing individual imperfections. 

This comprehensive focus on balance and harmony has been shaped by the natural beauty that surrounds our Whistler practice, and the needs of our patients and their stories,
