We’re in the business of achieving your aesthetic goals.

Dr. Brooks moved to southern Alberta because there was a need for a plastic surgeon to help reduce wait times in the south zone. Once our plastic surgery clinic was running smoothly, Dr. Brooks and his wife Chelsea opted to slowly expand the services offered. 

Our spa in Medicine Hat, Alberta was founded on the premise that we would do everything in our power to help individuals feel confident in their skin, and at the same time, ensure no one feels the need to be anything other than who they are. 

Our Medi Spa is the result of years of pre-planning and research to provide only the best products and services.  We ensure everything is to the standards that one would expect of a plastic surgery clinic.

 Our unique approach  allows our clients and patients to feel comfortable and confident when their service(s) are complete.

The man, the myth, the legend. 

Let us introduce you to Dr. Trevor Brooks.

He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and board certified Plastic Surgeon that serves patients from Southern Alberta and Saskatchewan. He completed his residency in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Manitoba. His medical school training was completed at the University of Alberta. Furthermore, while at the University of Calgary, Dr. Brooks received a Master of Science in Biomedical Technology to complement his Bachelor of Science in Cellular, Molecular and Microbial Biology (yeah, he’s one well-educated human).


Other accomplishments to note include Dr. Brooks being published in peer-reviewed medical journals and the presentations he has offered for both national and international conferences.


When Dr. Brooks is not caring for patients, you can find him decompressing with his wife, Chelsea, in the great outdoors or hunkered down with one of his favourite video games, showcasing his genius eye/hand coordination (doesn’t even seem fair to those who compete online with him). 

And then, there were two

Meet Chelsea Brooks.

Chelsea Brooks has been a part of our Medi Spa from the moment the idea was verbalized out loud by Dr. Brooks (perks of being married to an entrepreneurial surgeon).

In 2006, Chelsea (or Chels as she’s commonly known) graduated with a Bachelor of Education with the greatest distinction from Brandon University. At that time, she could have never imagined the career change that would take place and how enjoyable she would find running a clinic/Medi Spa. 

Chelsea began managing the office of Dr. Trevor Brooks Plastic Surgery upon its opening in February 2014 and planned and organized the addition of Essentials Medi Spa in April 2017.  Her goal is to ensure patients and clients are taken care of from the moment the referral letters or bookings are received to the time final follow-ups are made.  

Chelsea is a true prairie girl; a Manitoban turned Albertan. She loves to head east whenever she can to see her family back in Manitoba or head west to Invermere to spend time with Trevor’s family. Family is essential in Chelsea’s life, and she is grateful for the love and support she receives.

No other Medi Spa location in Medicine Hat is led by a plastic surgeon.

That is what is unique to Essentials Medi Spa; Dr. Brooks may be consulted whenever a concern arises.

We are the only medi spa in Medicine Hat that is led by a plastic surgeon.

That is what is unique to Essentials Medi Spa; Dr. Brooks may be consulted whenever a concern arises.

Should a mole be lasered?

Dr. Brooks will let you know if it is a bad idea; he sees thousands of skin cancers yearly.

Which skin tightening treatment is right for you?

Before spending thousands on filler, Dr. Brooks and the nurses he has trained may explain if a series of skin tightening treatments or a facelift is the only way to achieve your desired results.

Should you get BOTOX® or laser facial rejuvenation?

Fine lines around the mouth can be treated in many ways.  Dr. Brooks and our entire staff want you to see improvements from the start, so we will never suggest something that isn’t the best starting point.

What makes us different is who leads us.
