Aubree Chesnut

Aubree Chesnut received her cosmetics training from the most elite physicians in Southern California, including plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon of the TV show “The Doctors,” facial plastic surgeon Dr. Behroozan Torkian of the famous Lasky Clinic in Los Angeles, President of the American Academy of Dermatology and dermatologic surgeon Dr. Ron Moy in Beverly Hills, her husband Dr. Cameron Chesnut in cosmetic surgery while at UCLA, as well as numerous others.

This diversity of training is unmatched amongst the majority of injectors nationwide. Aubree has a broad paradigm and breadth of knowledge to approach each patient’s unique goals and needs – instead of forcing that patient into a narrow, dogmatic approach created by training with just a few perspectives.

Aubree was awarded her masters’ degree in Physician Assistant Studies from Western University of Health Sciences in Southern California. At Western University, she graduated at the top of her class on the Dean’s List. Upon graduating, she completed a residency training program in Los Angeles, focusing exclusively on advanced cosmetic injection techniques where she honed her aesthetic eye.

While working in Santa Monica, Aubree practiced exclusively in aesthetic medicine. She is a highly sought after trainer for injectable fillers and neuromodulators, where she trains cosmetic physicians on the state of the art in modern aesthetics.

Aubree has an intimate knowledge of dermatology, facial anatomy, and an in-depth understanding of the aging process from the earliest changes of facial aestheics to advanced and dynamic tissue-aging concepts. This combination of knowledge allows Aubree to pinpoint the most conservative, efficient, and natural approach to meet her patients’ cosmetic goals.

This intimate understanding of the components of facial-aging also allows her to recognize each patient’s unique needs, treating only necessary, sometimes subtle signs of aging to restore a natural, youthful appearance without looking artificial or overworked. Aubree caries a humble, friendly demeanor, under which lies leadership skills and an internal drive forged at the highest levels of athletic competition. Aubree received her baccalaureate degree in kinesiology at Arizona State University, where she was captain of the women’s basketball team, leading her team to the Elite 8 of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, and earning All Pacific 10 Conference honors in the process. She furthered those leadership skills while coaching basketball at North Idaho College and Seattle Pacific University.

As a leader in the field of dermatology and aesthetics, Aubree has presented to dermatology physicians at the California Society of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery Annual Meeting, she is board certified by the National Commission for the Certification of Physician Assistants, and she is an active member of the American College of Phlebology and International Union of Phlebology.

Aubree and her husband Cameron have returned home to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Together they enjoy surfing, snow skiing, waterskiing and spending time with their son, Torin, and daugters Tatum and Callum.

Melissa Unruh, RN

Melissa is the Director of Nursing at Clinic5C specializing in cosmetic laser treatments and sedation cases for complex procedures. In addition to being our lead registered nurse (RN), she has over 10 years of experience as a master esthetician in both cosmetic and medical procedures, giving her that extra attention to detail that patients appreciate. With a passion for incorporating functional wellness with science she is an excellent teacher and nurse. Her love and dedication for serving and pampering others is what drove Melissa to further her education and complete her Registered Nursing degree.

Her vision is to provide the highest standard of care in the most nurturing and comfortable environment for each of her patients. She understands that many patients have some fear or anxiety around complicated procedures, so she takes time to truly listen to each person on an individual level and do her best to put them at ease - this is one of the reasons she chose nursing.

Originally from Arizona she loves the sunshine but appreciates the seasonal weather changes in the PNW. When she is not working you can find her with family, connecting with nature on the trails, or exploring new places. She feels best when she incorporates holistic massage, dance, and healthy foods into her daily life.

For Melissa, there is no end to learning, she plans to remain a student of the health and wellness path for the rest of her life.

She has additional experience in advanced stress, thyroid and male/female hormone analysis, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, and IV nutrient therapies.

Leah is excited to be back home in Spokane to serve the community she grew up in and utilize a functional medicine approach to health optimization. She enjoys spending time with her husband Jake, daughter Harper, son River, and dog Kula. They often go hiking, fishing, camping, and enjoy cooking together.

I always offer my client the opportunity to involve themselves in their health and happiness.

The study of yoga continues to elevate my understanding of others by truly listening to each person’s concerns and expectations. I use a holistic approach with CoolSculpting/CoolTone and offer as much guidance and support as desired by each person.
