toronto dermatologyDR. JEN NEWELL, ND

Founder of Connected Health & Skin | Naturopathic Doctor

Jen is a seasoned skin strategist who adores addressing dermatological concerns like acne, rosacea and dermal barrier disruption. Jen opened her Toronto skin clinic to offer next level support for patients by resolving their skin issues from both the inside out and the outside in. In addition, she wants to obliterate the mainstream habit of marketing beauty by preying on women’s insecurities.

Creating bespoke care plans for every unique patient is her happy place. Moreover, she loves witnessing how a change in a person’s skin health becomes reflected in their confidence and as a result considers it a great privilege to be able to help in that transformation.
