about the team
at Camas Medspa
My favorite thing about Camas Medspa is the people. It sounds cliche perhaps, but a successful business begins with the staff and our women are exceptional! Their committment to their craft and the joy they bring to their work overflows to our clients and it is palpable. We (our team, our clients) feel like friends and family and with that feeling brings trust, honesty, and a unique kind of medspa – Shannon
Who’s Who at Camas medspa
Dr. Karen Gaskell – Injector
Dr. Gaskell, the medical director and injector, graduated from Loma Linda University School of Medicine, and continued on to specialize in ophthalmology diseases and surgery. She had a practice in southern California until 1996, when she moved to the northwest. She currently practices ophthalmology as well as aesthetics in Camas. She began doing cosmetic injectables in 2005 at the time she became medical director of a local laser clinic.
Dr. Gaskell is certified, and has advanced training in Botox/Dysport and various dermal fillers including Belotero, Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, Perlane, and Voluma. She is also certified and experienced with the Fraxel Restore laser and the Cutera Laser .
The field of non-surgical aesthetic enhancement changes as rapidly as cell phone technology, and she can help you navigate between media hype and what procedures or combination of procedures/products would help benefit you and enhance your unique, natural beauty.
