Darlene Zettergren has brought Newport Aesthetics to Sisters, offering Botox, medical peels, and micro-needling.

Darlene Zettergren recently relocated to Sisters to be closer to family - and she has brought Newport Aesthetics with her.

Zettergren had a full practice in Newport, Rhode Island, where she lived and worked for many years, after transitioning from nursing into the field of aesthetics.

"I was always a cardio-intensive nurse," she said with a smile. "It's nice because my clients talk to me now."

Newport Aesthetics offers Botox and other treatments beneficial to both men and women, and people of all ages.

"I also do medical peels for various skin types and conditions," Zettergren said.

She also does radio-frequency micro-needling that can help with scar-revision and skin rejuvenation.

Zettergren works by appointment and offers individualized treatments.

"Usually we do a little phone consultation so I get an idea of where they're at," she said. Then, she offers a free assessment before recommending a course of treatment.

"It's geared to them individually," she said. "Very often it's over a period of time... It can be someone who wants to age a little more gracefully... If you feel better about yourself, it's worth volumes. Aging gracefully is a challenging process."

Younger clients often seek Botox and lip treatments, or help with scars or acne.

For Zettergren, the deepest satisfaction in her work comes from the relationships she develops with clients.

"I enjoy the practice, too," she said. "It's challenging to me to meet their needs and also to show them how to take advantage of certain aspects of the treatment."

Zettergren undertakes constant training to stay abreast of developments in the field. She is licensed to practice in Oregon, Washington, and Rhode Island.

Zettergren had visited Sisters several times before relocating here.

"People are friendly, easy-going," she reflected. "I like the tight community, and I want to develop an individualized clientele here."

Newport Aesthetics is located in the brick building on the corner of Main Avenue and Larch Street – adjacent to a variety of other wellness practices.

"I feel very fortunate to have found this space with all of the professional women here," Zettergren said. "I'm hoping to be a good addition to the community."
