With a mission to enhance one’s natural beauty by combining medicine, art, and the latest treatments and techniques, owners Shanti Benoit Boyce, ARNP and Heather Grods, ARNP invite you to rediscover your beauty at Northwest Medical Arts (NWMA).

Opened in April 2023, the pair was inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds them, paired with a heart toward service and the love of people. “We wanted to build a medical practice that was safe, welcoming, and focused on enhancing one’s natural beauty. Through Northwest Medical Arts, we feel we are able to use some of our best talents through nursing and aesthetics and combine our love of medicine and beauty,” explains Heather.

Shanti and Heather are committed to providing great results and a memorable experience that helps clients look and feel refreshed. “Our extensive experience allows us to know what we can and cannot do, what is a realistic outcome and how we can achieve that in a safe and comfortable way,” notes Shanti. “This is our passion, and we are all in.”

At NWMA, they provide non-surgical medical aesthetic treatments and medical-grade skin care. Services range from Diamond Glow facials, Botox, microneedling, PRP (platelet-rich plasma), laser hair removal and dermal fillers to a variety of treatments to address skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, melasma and general anti-aging. If you’re looking for skin-care products to take home, they offer Epionce, ZO by Dr. Obagi, SkinMedica and Skin Better Science.

“We feel passionately about offering evidence-based and scientifically sound treatments and skin care to our clients,” affirms Heather. “Throughout our combined 15 years’ experience, we have tried and learned about the majority of services that are being offered under the umbrella of aesthetic medicine, and we only offer treatments that pass our standards of safety, efficacy, reproducible results and affordability. We listen to our patients and only offer services that we feel can reach their goals. We are honest in our assessment and our guidance and continue to have success with our clients due to these qualities.”

Their approach to aesthetics focuses on the inherent beauty each person possesses; there is no one-size-fits-all treatment or skin care. “We act more as a mirror to guide people on what beautiful features one has naturally and what we can offer through medicine to enhance those natural features, unlocking each individual's beauty and breathing love and confidence into them,” shares Shanti.

She and Heather believe that there should be no obvious evidence that anything was “done,” which they both agree has much to do with the aesthetic eye of the provider along with the techniques and equipment used. As nurse practitioners, they are committed to continually improving their skill set and knowledge base in order to deliver the best possible care. “In a lot of ways, we are confidence boosters and want our clients to look and feel their best!” Heather says.

Not only are they committed to their clients, they are committed to their community, so they have designed a membership program in which a portion of the revenue, on a quarterly basis, will go to benefit a local nonprofit making a difference in the Puget Sound. “As our members save for future treatments, they are also a part of a bigger impact circle where we can make strides improving the health and wellness of our community,” Shanti says. “It is our vision that as our business grows, our social impact will reach further and further. The more we can do for our patients, the more we can do for our community, and we want to empower everyone to look, feel and be their best self.”

Community outreach is another facet of their community support. From collecting school supplies and participating in Race for a Soldier to gifting a deserving nurse or caregiver a rejuvenation experience, any support of Northwest Medical Arts can rest assured that Shanti and Heather will pay it forward to help make a difference for someone else.

“Our biggest hope for NWMA is that we can positively impact our patients and our community,” Heather shares. “Shanti and I believe that we should give to others. We have received so much love and support as our careers have progressed, and NWMA has finally come to fruition. We want to continue to pay it forward and support those who need it most.” Northwest Medical Arts 5350 Orchard Street West, Suite 202 University Place, Washington 253.352.0882
