CosMedic Skincare is rebranding to KMP Aesthetics

Home/The Clinic/Skin Care Expert in Seattle

Meet Dr. Kevan Petterson

Dr. Kevan Petterson, DNP, ARNP, FMP, NP-CDr. Kevan Petterson, DNP, ARNP, has been immersed in the world of cosmetic dermatology as an aesthetic treatment provider for nearly 15 years. His career began in the operating room at Virginia Mason Medical Center where he built a strong anatomical and physiological foundation. During his time in the operating room, he worked closely with Dr. Craig Murakami, a leader in board-certified ENT and facial plastic surgery and a key player in the region’s fellowship programs. Working with Dr. Murakami allowed Kevan to see plastic surgery and patient anatomy from a foundational and educational perspective. And it was in Dr. Murakami’s operating room that Kevan made the decision to fully commit to the field of aesthetics.

The beginning of Kevan’s aesthetic career was nurtured through high patient volumes and protocol-based education at two local corporate medical spas: SkinSpirit and Calidora Skin Clinic. While at these clinics, Kevan began to piece together his own protocols and yearned for a work environment that supported a more individual and personalized patient-provider relationship. This journey led to his employment at CosMedic Skincare under Dr. Jodie Reinertson. Together, their similar passion to develop evidence-based treatment algorithms that could be adapted to meet each patient’s individual needs accelerated their development.

Dr. Jodie pushed Kevan to obtain his Doctorate of Nursing Practice at Gonzaga University, which prepared him for the eventual acquisition of her “baby,” CosMedic Skincare. Running in parallel to the support he received from Dr. Jodie, Allergan Medical Institute nurtured Kevan’s ability to train aesthetic providers who work with him to provide personalized, multi-dimensional, and evidence-based care to the clinic’s patients.

In February 2023, Kevan officially purchased CosMedic Skincare and began its shift to KMP Aesthetics. He strives to create an environment where patients feel safe to express how they desire to see themselves reflected in this physical dimension. It is Dr. Kevan’s belief that by supporting the patient’s higher self, their projection of what feels most aligned with their purpose helps them achieve more throughout their lifespan.

When he’s not helping his patients enhance their innate beauty, Kevan can be found shopping for rare crystals, nurturing the growth of his indoor and outdoor houseplants, working out with his longtime trainer, and adding to his designer fashion collection.

Education and Training

Kevan received his Doctorate of Nursing Practice – Family Nurse Practitioner from Gonzaga University. His culminating DNP project focused on improved patient safety and quality outcomes during cosmetic laser and light treatments. He has also completed advanced training courses and workshops in a wide variety of other aesthetic treatment modalities. He currently serves as an aesthetic trainer for Allergan Aesthetics, the creators of BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, KYBELLA®, and a range of other cosmetic enhancement products.

Kevan is committed to ensuring that he and his team are able to provide patients at KMP Aesthetics with the safest, most effective treatments available. As a result, he regularly pursues professional education opportunities, staying abreast of the latest procedures, technologies, and techniques. Kevan has learned under some of the top companies and aesthetic trainers in the world, including Allergan Aesthetics, Sciton (creators of the BBL® HERO™ and Moxi® lasers), InMode (creators of Morpheus8), and Revance (creators of the innovative RHA® Collection and DAXXIFY™).
