With more than 25 years of experience in nursing and midwifery, and more than a decade of practice as a Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist (CANS), Rana Kennelly brings an irresistible blend of skill, experience, artistry, caring and joy to her practice.
Recognized as one of the top educators in the field, she is a sought-after speaker/trainer for colleagues, frequently engaged by top companies such as Allergan, Galderma and P.A.L.E.T.T.E. Resources. She has worked with renowned plastic surgeons and dermatologists in the United States, Europe and Australia, and currently practices in Chicago and Australia. She frequently leverages her considerable experience to bring innovative, hands-on aesthetics training to healthcare professionals worldwide.
Rana has performed thousands of safe and sophisticated aesthetic procedures that enhance natural beauty, conceal imperfections, and restore youthfulness. She expertly assesses her patients’ needs, aesthetic goals and outcomes. She employs a full complement of state-of-the-art products—including neuromodulators, hyaluronic acid fillers, platelet-rich plasma and skin and laser treatments--to achieve the best and most natural-looking results.
In addition to her considerable abilities, Rana brings unparalleled passion and enthusiasm to her field. This is evident through her ongoing pursuit of continued education. She frequently attends national and international programs to ensure she provides the most current aesthetic treatments and to be able to maintain the highest level of teaching excellence in terms of the newest, safest and most advanced techniques.
Rana believes every person is a unique individual.
This is the foundation of her honest, down-to-earth approach. She emphasizes the importance of working within a safe and realistic framework while helping her patients gain self-confidence and radiate health, well-being and happiness. When it comes to her treatment approach, Rana embraces two main goals:
1. “Seeking the Natural”
Nobody wants to look as if they’ve “had work done.” The goal is to look fresher. Rejuvenated. Friendlier. Like yourself, only better. This is where Rana really shines. Thanks to her keen assessment skills, eye for detail, sophisticated aesthetic, significant knowledge and broad range of experience she has the unique ability to provide comprehensive and natural-looking treatments. One approach does NOT fit all—everything she does is completely bespoke for each and every patient. Whether the focus is the face, the neck, the décolletage or the hands, her goal is to address the aging process in the most effective, low-impact and imperceptible ways possible. The best treatment, she believes, is one where others recognize you look better, happier, brighter and more vibrant…but they can’t pinpoint why!
2. “Breaking the Negative”
There’s no room for negativity in Rana’s world. There is something beautiful about everyone, and that’s what Rana strives to recognize and enhance. Time can have a negative effect on a person’s features, causing them to look tired, perhaps, or sad. These are negatives Rana reverses with her unique brand of empathy, understanding and enthusiasm. After spending time with Rana, it’s impossible not to face the day, the week and the future with complete confidence and renewed optimism.
The best treatment is one where others recognize you look better, happier, brighter, and more vibrant but they cant exactly pinpoint what you have had done.
