Our lovely cosmetic injection, Dr. Peggy Burke, was born and raised in Calgary and is a true Calgarian through and through. She earned her medical degree at the University of Alberta and did her family medicine residency in Calgary at the Holy Cross Hospital. She raised her family in Calgary and loves to spend time with her husband, adult children, young grandchildren, and pets, camping, and hiking in Calgary's beautiful outdoors. She also loves traveling.
Dr. Burke strongly believes in the practice of preventative medicine. Her passion for healthily living to lead her to focus her practice on nutrition and weight loss. Noting that the loss of facial volume that can accompany weight loss was impacting the self-esteem of some of her patients, she decided to pursue training in facial fillers so she could help them look as good as the weight loss had made them feel. She took her training in fillers and the cosmetic benefits of Botox at the Centre for Excellence in Ontario in 2012. Creating natural results and a refreshed appearance grew into a passion.
When an opening for an injector at Skinpossible arose in 2016 she saw it as an opportunity for growth, and we saw an opportunity to have this wonderful lady on our staff. We eagerly welcomed her, as she brought her knowledge and respectful style to our team of skilled injectors. Since then, she has continued to hone her advanced skills and now acts as the head of our injection department.
She has attended some of the most prestigious advanced training the world has to offer!
During her decade as a full-time cosmetic injector, she has traveled regularly for continuing education for cosmetic physicians, including advanced training at the Centre for Excellence. She is proud to be among the few physician injectors in Calgary who have been invited for six consecutive years to train and be part of lectures by the well-known plastic surgeon, renowned cosmetic injector, and the developer of MD Codes—Dr. Mauricio De Mio. MD Codes educational events are hosted by the manufacturer of Botox and Juvederm, Allergan, and is advanced training that injectors who use cheaper fillers don’t get. Of those who qualify, only the most experienced injectors receive invitations. Dr. Burke has attended all six modules that are offered!
Bringing cheer to every room she enters, she values the opportunity to listen to her patients and help them achieve their cosmetic goals. Her patients value her warm, gentle, and calming demeanor. A true artist, they also love the beautiful results she creates on their faces.
