DermaEnvy Skincare, a growing Canadian Laser, Skincare and Medical Aesthetics franchise based in Halifax, Nova Scotia is continuing its national expansion announcing their ninth and tenth clinics – both in New Brunswick, by awarding the franchise territories of Quispamsis and Fredericton respectively to existing brand franchisee, Kristi MacKay.

MacKay currently owns clinics in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and Saint John, New Brunswick. MacKay opened her first clinic in Charlottetown only two years ago in September 2020 and has since acquired the Saint John clinic making the announcement of two additional territories of Quispamsis and Fredericton, her third and fourth clinics respectively.

The 13-year police veteran’s success with the brand began when opening her Charlottetown PEI clinic, after which time she acquired the previously corporate-owned Saint John, New Brunswick clinic and continues to see impressive growth and demand in both communities despite the challenges of operating during a pandemic.

With such a positive community response, Kristi has decided to retire in good standing from her policing career and dedicate her time to the growth and success of her growing franchise portfolio of DermaEnvy Skincare clinics. “I’m excited to bring the DermaEnvy Experience of affordable laser and skincare to the communities of Quispamsis / Rothesay and Fredericton,” said MacKay.

DermaEnvy Skincare strives to provide their clients with honest, affordable and professional skin care delivered in an approachable and clinical environment. Offering medical aesthetics treatments such as Laser Hair Removal, Microneedling, IPL Photo Rejuvenation, Laser Tattoo Removal, Facials and Peels.

Construction has begun at the Quispamsis clinic location, with a targeted opening in July 2022 in the secured location at 184-186 Hampton Road, Quispamsis in the heart of the growing community. This growth means additional job opportunities for those in the industry, with MacKay hiring multiple positions, both in Quispamsis and Fredericton. “We are currently hiring and excited to grow Team DermaEnvy with multiple part and full-time positions for Medical Aestheticians and Aestheticans alike in Saint John, Quispamsis and Fredericton clinics,” said MacKay

The Fredericton clinic is in the planning phase with a targeted opening in Q4 of 2022. With existing clinic locations open in Moncton/Dieppe and Saint John, “The brand is very excited to have an even stronger brand presence in the province where it all began for DermaEnvy Skincare” said Cohen MacInnis, President of Wellness Brands Canada Inc., the franchisor of the brand.

The brand has been established in the New Brunswick market with the very first DermaEnvy clinic location opening in Dieppe in 2016. “We are excited and proud that we will now have clinics in 4 New Brunswick communities for our clients to visit and enjoy,” MacInnis said.

“Our brand’s continued growth in Atlantic Canada in the past 24 months, despite the operational and logistical challenges of the pandemic, is a credit to the loyalty and determination of Team DermaEnvy”, said MacInnis.
