The Collective

Our Story

The inception of the Aesthetic Collective is rooted in the personal experiences and aspirations of our founder, Darya Hansen DNP, ARNP. 

 Darya’s career in aesthetics began in a plastic surgery office in West Des Moines, Iowa, and later evolved to a medical spa environment. These early steps in her career provided insight into not only the challenges and limitations faced by professionals in the field, but perhaps more importantly, a myriad of rewards of developing a uniquely ingenious way of doing business. 

Providers plateauing in commission-based earnings, desiring more freedom and flexibility in scheduling, seeking a sense of career ownership, and greater financial independence are a few areas of opportunity that lead to the concept of the Aesthetic Collective.

On a mission to empower others, Darya’s vision and passion was to create a model that enables aesthetic professionals greater independence while minimizing risks. The Aesthetic Collective is a powerhouse of tools and resources for providers. From collective buying power, access to state-of-the-art technology, comprehensive training, and a fair reverse commission model, the platform delivers instant rewards and opportunities for providers who want to work smarter.

 The Aesthetic Collective platform offers essential support, access to resources, and a collaborative community for aesthetics providers to thrive and succeed.
