Isis Manning - RN
Hi, My name is Isis Manning and I am the Founder and Owner of “Beauty On Avon”. Located in the downtown core, I wanted to express my love for this community and I really wanted a name and service that would focus on this beautiful city. From the beautiful park like settings and our swans on the river, to our amazing theatrical productions, and to the people who live here and make all of this happen every day. Stratford is an absolute “beauty” place to live and raise a family. Therefore, “Beauty on Avon” is a place that exists in my heart when I think of Stratford. I graduated as a registered nurse in 1996, but shhhhhh! That was a while ago. The majority of my career has been in the acute hospital setting. I worked many years in Rehabilitation and also Cardiac Care. I have learned so much in the 20+ years working in these two specialty areas of nursing. More recently, I have found my true passion in another nursing specialty; Medical Aesthetics. I love to learn and develop new skills and I have found that I can incorporate my skills into medical aesthetics. I also get to work with my clients to be the most beautiful versions of themselves. I can’t imagine anything better.
Kathryn is a nurse practitioner in Ontario and in four other provinces. When Kathryn is not busy renewing licenses, you will find her playing with one of her four kids! Three of them are under the age of four so that keeps her very busy! With a love for life that is contagious, we are so thrilled she brings that positive energy to our team. She absolutely loves being a part of the cosmetic industry - specifically teaching and learning. Kathryn is always excited to learn and looks forward to meeting and developing relationships with more wonderful, skilled nurses along the way.

Beauty On Avon can provide assistance with High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatments. HIFU is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound energy to target specific layers of tissue beneath the skin, stimulating collagen production and resulting in skin tightening and lifting effects. Here's how Beauty On Avon can help with HIFU:
Consultation: Beauty On Avon offers HIFU treatments typically provide consultations to assess your specific needs and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. During the consultation, a trained professional will evaluate your skin condition, discuss your treatment goals and expectations, and explain the benefits and potential risks of HIFU. They will also address any questions or concerns you may have.
Treatment sessions: If you decide to proceed with HIFU, Beauty On Avon will schedule a series of treatment sessions according to your customized treatment plan. The number of sessions required can vary depending on factors such as your skin condition, the desired level of improvement, and the specific HIFU device being used. The treatments are typically spaced several weeks apart to allow for collagen regeneration.
HIFU procedure: During the HIFU procedure, a handheld device is used to deliver focused ultrasound energy to the targeted areas of the skin. The ultrasound energy penetrates deep into the skin, targeting specific layers and stimulating collagen production. The controlled thermal injury caused by the ultrasound energy promotes the body's natural healing response, resulting in skin tightening, lifting, and overall rejuvenation. The procedure is generally well-tolerated, and some individuals may experience mild discomfort or a warm sensation during the treatment.
Post-treatment care: After each HIFU session, Beauty On Avon will provide guidance on post-treatment care. This may include recommendations for skincare products, sun protection, and any necessary precautions to ensure optimal results and minimize potential side effects. They may also schedule follow-up appointments to assess your progress and determine if any additional sessions are needed.
It's important to note that HIFU treatments should be performed by trained professionals who have experience with this procedure. They will have a thorough understanding of the technology, proper treatment settings, and safety protocols. By choosing a reputable establishment like Beauty On Avon, you can have confidence in the expertise and quality of care provided.
During your consultation with Beauty On Avon, they will assess your suitability for HIFU, discuss the expected outcomes, and tailor the treatment plan to your specific needs. They will also provide detailed information about the procedure, including the benefits, potential risks, and any necessary preparations or precautions.
Remember, individual results may vary, and it's essential to have realistic expectations and follow the guidance of your healthcare professional throughout the process.
