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 commitment 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 – Medical Director

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.

Dr. Gaskell lives locally in Camas, Washington with her husband and two children. She is a private pilot, scuba diver, grower of lavender and dahlias, and supports a school and orphanage in Africa.
