Who are we?​

Our mission

  • Invest in the industry’s top aesthetic providers so they can earn more income and focus on their passion.
  • Empower excellent aesthetics providers to have long term success by providing ongoing business support and development resources.
  • Focus on providing the latest technology and training, including our proprietary EHR built specifically for aesthetic providers.
  • We know how tough it can be as an aesthetic provider working in a medspa setting. You are limited in what you can do and achieve. At Portrait, we want to ensure nothing is holding you back from reaching your full and absolute potential.
  • At Portrait, it’s not about us; it’s about YOU!

Core values

Patient Satisfaction First

This is our primary value that we want to help you deliver to your patients. When we begin working with a provider, we help them develop new ways of making their patients happy. This includes access to unlimited training with the industries most revered educators and mentors.

Integrity

We follow through on our promises. In today’s internet-driven society, reputation and social proof are critical. We are committed to assisting aesthetic injectors at every stage of the process.

Family Environment

Working in hostile and competitive medspa environments is stressful, especially when you are trying hard to do your best work. At Portrait, we are here to support you personally and professionally. We are in this together and the people you will work with are more than just co-workers; they are family.

Well-being Driven

The long shifts and endless days can take a toll on your health and wellness. Often, we are unaware until something serious happens. At Portrait, we want to help you create a well-balanced life so you can focus on everything you love.

Results-oriented

Our goal is your goal – we will walk with you every step of the way to ensure we deliver the best experience to you and your patients.

Communication

Our communication style is unique because we operate like a business but function like a family. The ultimate goal is transparency.

Aesthetic Providers Who Love Us

providers_melissa_gordon

Melissa Gorden

Melissa started with us after owning her own practice for nineteen years. She knew the ins and outs of owning her business and didn’t want to invest in managing it any longer. She aligned with Portrait when she realized she was getting burnt out from doing so independently. It wasn’t until she made the switch that Melissa reached her maximum potential.

Jolene Retaskie

Jolene is an advanced injector with an impressive following who was preparing to start her own practice. Her only reservations about owning her own aesthetics business were the high startup fees, overhead costs, and liability commitment. When she was introduced to Portrait, she realized that it was the best of both worlds and never looked back!

providers_laurie_paterson

Laurie Peterson

Laurie had a robust career injecting at medspas and clinics but was discouraged by her lack of freedom to choose the right treatments for her patients and such little control over her schedule. Now that she’s at Portrait, she can spend the time she needs with each patient and as a result her clientele has doubled from referrals.
providers_gail_kair

Gail Kair

Gail established a successful career working with a top physician, but when he retired she could not find another supportive MD. Sick of the “turn and burn” mentality of seeing 20+ patients per day without proper compensation, making the switch to Portrait was an easy choice. Now Gail reports looking forward to rewarding work days and financially supporting her family more than ever before!
