Meet Mireille Balian and Christine MacDonald of ChicMed Laser & Esthetic Center in Waltham

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mireille Balian and Christine MacDonald.

Mireille and Christine, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Christine and I have a very similar story of how we got into the esthetic industry. We each were going through our own personal concerns and needing to look into services such as Skincare & Laser Hair Removal for ourselves. As we saw what amazing results we achieved and how much it changed our lives, it brought up a passion for us to want to give the same to others. In 2003 Christine decided to do the Medical Esthetic Program at the Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics to pursue her career in the Advanced Skincare industry. She immediately starting working as an esthetician at a Doctor’s office then progressed into management for a larger company. In 2005, I made the decision to do the same program at the same school although my focus was on the Laser Hair Removal side of the industry. As I followed the program, I started to have more interest in the skincare aspect as well. After obtaining my esthetics license, I started working for the same company that Christine was working at. This is actually how we first met. Working together we found that we were so in sync and did an amazing job running one of the locations, making it the top performing clinic in the whole company. We also became best of friends through working together where we were pretty much family! After working for the company for almost 10 years, we started getting fed up with the corporate side of such a big chain where they focused more on the money and less on the client. We decided to leave the company and pursue opening up our own business. We knew we would flourish with the experience and knowledge that we had in addition to the excellent customer service we wanted to provide to our clients. And here we are 3 years later running a successful MedSpa in the heart of Waltham!

Has it been a smooth road?
Honestly, we’ve been extremely lucky to have everything we’ve planned so far to fall right into place. From the early stages of finding the perfect location, to renovations, building our reputation, building our clientele from scratch and maintaining them to this day! We are so proud of ourselves for doing it all on our own and blessed to have come this far!
