Board Certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants, Erin Albaridi received her Bachelor’s degree and was a member of the swim team at the University of Michigan. She completed her Physician Assistant degree in 2000 from Nova Southeastern University in Florida.
Erin began her career practicing Emergency Medicine followed by Dermatology in Chicago and Atlanta. Her true passion had always been to direct her focus towards growing a facial aesthetics practice. When she moved to Connecticut in 2008, she joined a large medical dermatology group where she helped develop, grow and maintain a high volume injectable and laser practice. She has joined New Beauty and Wellness in May 2021.
Erin has expertise in facial anatomy and non-surgical rejuvenation. She believes that injectables should be used to restore facial balance rather than to only create volume. She has been a national speaker and trainer for Allergan Cosmetics and a faculty member of the Allergan Institute for the last 12 years. She also provides education in other areas of aesthetic rejuvenation and is partnering with Sciton Laser Company to speak for them as well. After recognizing how many providers are receiving their training by watching youtube videos, she has begun to develop a curriculum to start her own academy to Plook “done”.
With 20 years of experience, Erin’s philosophy on skin health, beauty, and aging requires multiple modalities. The best outcomes are fulfilled through the art of a very detailed assessment. Each client reveals a different story. Skin quality, genetics, sun damage, volume loss, as well as a patient’s mental and physical lifestyle are all factors that go into designing the right treatment plan. Your journey with Erin is unique and individualized. The best results are found by combining dermal fillers, biostimulatory products, and state-of-the-art skin care devices, and lasers. Erin has treated over 20,000 cosmetic patients and has trained over 2,000 physicians, midlevel providers, and nurses. She is excited to continue down that path with New Beauty and Wellness.
