DR. DIANE FINDING MEDICAL DIRECTOR, OWNER
Diane Finding has been in the medical community for over 25 years, being recognized as one of the top injectors in the Canadian cosmetic industry. She has attended conferences and seminars across the world in countries and cities such as Prague, Beverly Hills and England. Her patients have been loyal clients for years due to her empathetic and warm nature, her meticulous eye for detail, and her uncanny ability to transform the face.
Diane grew up in Victoria, BC, and had always had a passion to help and better people’s lives.
After graduating high school, Diane travelled to India which changed her life in more ways than one. After many months of travel, when she arrived home she knew what she wanted to do, and chose a career in medicine. In 1983, Diane began studying Bio Chemistry at the University of Victoria and because of high honours, she received early acceptance into UBC and graduated in 1989 with a Degree in Medicine. With her Degree, Diane started a rotating internship at the Royal Columbian Hospital (RCH) which she still works to this day as a Hepatobiliary Assist. Diane has assisted in hundreds of specialized surgeries, which include liver, pancreas and whipple’s disease. While Diane worked in surgery at RCH, she also operated a family practice as a GP until 2014, all while raising a family; her most proud and cherished accomplishments, her daughter, Ailish and son, Conor.
Out of the 25 years Diane has been in the medical field, 16 of those years were spent offering non-invasive cosmetic enhancements to patients such as Botox and dermal fillers. For 13 years of her cosmetic career, Diane worked at The Lougheed and Delta Laser Centre, and now has chosen to venture on her own, opening her very own practice, Beauty 2.0, in the heart of Port Moody, BC.
Diane has been a resident of Port Moody for over 26 years and thought what better an area to practice than her own city she has lived and loved for half her life. The Clinic’s Business Manager and Owner, Malcolm, also happens to be Diane’s husband, and what an amazing team they make. Diane looks forward to seeing her loyal patients of many years at Beauty 2.0, and is excited to welcome new ones as well.

Meet Gioia (A.K.A. Joya), our hardworking and enthusiastic Assistant Manager and HydraFacial Whizz. Gioia has been with Beauty 2.0 Aesthetics since the very beginning, welcoming every client (new or existing) with a big warm smile.
For Gioia, there are many different reasons why she enjoys being a part of our team. Besides working alongside her sister, Dr. Diane and her whacky brother-in-law Malcolm, she absolutely loves hearing the success stories and experiences from the best clientele in Vancouver.
Gioia attended the University of Victoria before moving and working in Customer Service for Trans Alta Utilities in Calgary for 17 years. It was here she gained the vast majority of her managing skills, serving as the Manager of one of the Marketing Departments during the last four years of her employment.
Always missing British Columbia, Gioia returned to the Sunshine Coast in 1998 with her two sons Kyle and Matthew, where she took some time off from work to be a stay-at-home Mom (no wonder she has taken on the role of “Hen Mother” for her second family, the team at Beauty 2.0). She later returned to work as a Production Manager for the computer company Basis, which produced computer games for the Leap Frog Company.
Today, Gioia and her husband Craig live in and enjoy Deep Cove in beautiful British Columbia.
