A family physician with advanced expertise in cosmetic medicine, Dr. Vanessa Abdelhalim brings her ever-expanding knowledge and techniques to the ZEST Face + Body slate of clinics.
An award-winner in her field and a lifelong learner, Dr. Abdelhalim studied neuroscience at Carleton University, medicine at the University of Ottawa and completed her residency at the University of Toronto. She has served as the Medical Director of several medical spa clinics spanning the Greater Toronto Area and Ottawa, with advanced training in cosmetic medicine.
Dr. Abdelhalim believes in safe and effective treatments that deliver beautiful and natural-looking results for all her patients. “I believe everyone is beautiful and unique in their own way,” says Dr. Abdelhalim, who continues to seek out education and attend lectures in the ever-evolving field of cosmetic medicine. “I also understand that most of us have insecurities that can hold us back in life. And when we make ourselves a priority and invest in our own health and wellness, we are able to shine brighter in our professional and personal lives.”
“I have personally treated patients from 18 to over 80 years old, students to CEOs, and everyone in between,” the fitness and travel enthusiast says. “My patients continue to inspire me, and it is a privilege to contribute to their joy in a small way.”
