Donna Sollima, RN, founded Bedford Skincare Clinic in Westlake Village to help people look their best.
“We primarily serve women--although we are seeing more and more men coming in for various treatments—basically, our target audience is anyone who wants to enhance or preserve their youthful look and counteract the effects of aging and/or sun damage,” says Donna, a registered nurse trained in injectables with expertise in many aspects of rejuvenation.
With a background as an operating room nurse, Donna discovered her passion for skincare and aesthetics while freelancing for a plastic surgeon during maternity leave following the birth of her second child.
“I found this was much more fun than general surgery!” says Donna, who began a full-time position working with a prominent plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills on Bedford before joining the Society for Plastic Surgical Skincare Specialists and specializing in skincare and injectables.
“In the early 90s, I met (and became associated with) our Medical Director, Dr. Athleo Cambre, a board-certified plastic surgeon. Shortly after this we moved out to Westlake Village and from that, Bedford Skincare Clinic was born!”
Donna takes pride in providing quality services and “Making people feel better about themselves by helping them to look their best. When they feel like they look better, they feel better!” says Donna, adding, “I also enjoy educating people about proper skincare and skin protection.”
Committed to every client, Donna assures, “I will never pursue or offer a technique for my patients that I wouldn’t do on myself. I always say, ‘I want to make you look natural, only better.’”
