The Radiance Team
Dr. Dave Christianson, MDDave (and yes, he prefers to just be called Dave... no “Doctor” necessary) initially became interested in the aesthetic side of medicine while doing a plastic surgery rotation in medical school.
Dave took a different medical career path for a period of time, but his aesthetic interest was reawakened when he sought Botox treatments for the angry 11’s between his eyes in 2007. That’s right… his 11’s caused him to do a career 180! While his 11’s are long gone, he now rates his aesthetic career a solid 10!
When Dave started his aesthetic medicine training in 2007, training opportunities were not readily available as they are today, so he traveled far and wide to learn the techniques of Botox and filler injections. Now considered one of the leading facial aesthetic injectors in the industry, Dave trains other medical professionals throughout the Midwest as an official trainer for aesthetic companies such as Allergan (Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella), Galderma (Sculptra Aesthetic), and Dermasculpt (Microcannulas).
In addition to his busy training schedule, Dave is the medical director of Radiance along with other clinics in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
