Dr. Rebecca Fisher

Family Physician – Focus In Aesthetic Medicine MD, CCFP

I graduated in 1998 from a Family Medicine Residency Program and began practicing Emergency Medicine in Ottawa. After twelve years of enjoying the fast paced and procedure rich environment of the Emergency Department, I started cutting back my ED hours and pivoted to part time Aesthetic Medicine in 2011. This change has allowed me to combine 3 of my passions: anatomy, art, and science.

In 2020 I completed my Diploma in Dermatology from Bond University in Australia, which has helped me understand and effectively treat the skin conditions my clients have.

My goals? To provide natural results, using the safest techniques possible, and to help clients of all ages have the healthiest skin possible while feeling confident and comfortable.

My Aesthetic Practice includes positive aging treatments as well as aesthetic interventions in the younger population which create more self confidence and empowerment.

I also address and treat my clients skin conditions using various modalities to improve their skin quality and resilience.

I am passionate about my work as well as my client’s satisfaction and experience. I am always on the lookout for the latest innovative procedures and treatments to add to my toolkit.

I regularly attend Medical Aesthetic conferences around the world, looking for the safest, innovative and effective techniques in the industry.

When I’m not working, you will find me hanging out with my 4 kids and husband, gardening, travelling or more likely on my yoga mat
