DAVE CHRISTIANSON MD

Dave, simply as he prefers to be called, has been practicing in medical aesthetics since 2007. Since training was not as readily available then as it is now, Dave sought out training all across the country to perfect his practice. Prior to “retiring” to work as a Medical Director, Dave owned, and practiced at several of his own successful medspas in the midwest. His expertise has led him to be one of the leading facial aesthetic injectors in the industry, and a trusted educator for some of the top aesthetic companies. Dave is an official trainer to medical professionals with Allergan, Galderma and Dermasculpt.
