What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Dr. Dana Brownell was inspired to start Westport Medispa by her passion for skincare. Dr. Brownell’s mother was an award-winning aesthetician, also in Westport, for three decades.
What do you love most about your job?
I love that every day, I do what I love, and that is helping people look better and feel better about themselves.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
There are so many, but the most memorable for me was when I restored someone’s eyebrows who’d lost them as a teenager and [was] now in her mid 40s. She had lost her job in the 2008–2009 “Great Recession” and was having a difficult time with her self-confidence [and] that led to difficulty finding a new job. We restored her eyebrows and her self-confidence. Within 30 days, she had a better job than the one she had lost.
