She worked in Critical Care, Emergency Medicine and Hyperbaric Medicine in Miami, Florida where she met her husband Jeffrey Hartog, MD. They relocated to Dallas, TX, where she continued in this area of practice and received a Master of Healthcare Science from Texas Wesleyan University in Ft. Worth, TX. She and Dr. Hartog moved to Salt Lake City, Utah where Michelle worked as a clinical coordinator for a group of pediatric surgeons.
In 1993, Michelle and Dr. Hartog decided to settle back in Florida to take on Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine full time. They started The Bougainvillea Clinique in 1996 and built a reputation of consistently natural results and a welcoming environment. The Aesthetic Surgery Center of Winter Park was established in 2002 as an on-site ambulatory space and Michelle served as Clinical Director. She also had the unique opportunity of learning and applying Botox Cosmetic and dermal fillers at their inception for use in aesthetics alongside Dr. Hartog. She is a Master Injector and faculty member of Allergan Medical Institute as a trainer for Botox, Juvederm and other Allergan products. While at the Bougainvillea Clinique, she transformed the office into a SkinCeuticals Flagship. Their longstanding staff embraced the collaboration and were able to take patient care to the next level.
Michelle is looking forward to the next venture with SkinCeuticals at the SkinLab Winter Park with her colleague and business partner Elizabeth “Liz” Pain APRN. Michelle and Liz have collated a talented team of providers to offer the area the best skincare facility in the area dedicated to SkinCeuticals products and signature treatments.
She has participated in speaking engagements with SkinCeuticals and various other aesthetic entities. Michelle serves as mentor to all levels of injectors because she is passionate about proper technique and safe treatments. In her spare time, Michelle enjoys her two Golden Retrievers, a longtime lifestyle of dancing and exercise, and traveling with Dr. Hartog to concerts, diving, and seeing their adult children.
