The Aspen Group announces that board-certified plastic surgeon Ben Wood, MD, MBA, FACS, has joined the company as chief medical officer of Chapter Aesthetic Studio. 

In his new role, Wood will oversee and facilitate training at Chapter University— an eight- and 12-week internal training program held in Fargo, N.D.— and work to expand the company’s credentialing program to provide continued learning opportunities for providers. In addition, Wood will regularly evaluate protocols to align with the newest technology and non-surgical treatment options.

“I am beyond excited to have Dr. Wood join us at Chapter,” says Melissa Rogne, founder and president of Chapter Aesthetic Studio. “His experience as a plastic surgeon, his extensive background in non-surgical aesthetics, and his keen understanding of the industry will advance our mission to transform awareness and understanding of medical aesthetic treatments.”

Chapter offers a full range of face, body, and injectable aesthetic treatments. Some of the most popular treatments include Botox, dermal fillers, CoolSculpting, laser hair removal, medical-grade facials, exfoliating peels, microneedling, platelet-rich plasma therapy, and laser skin rejuvenation.

As chief medical officer, Wood will use his knowledge as a board-certified plastic surgeon and his expertise in non-surgical aesthetic treatments to further develop and fine-tune training and treatment protocols through Chapter University.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to be part of such a visionary approach to delivering the highest quality care in non-surgical medical aesthetics,” Wood says. “At Chapter, the focus on training for our providers and our customized treatment plan for guests are really what sets us apart. I look forward to being part of its growth and vision as we work to normalize aesthetic treatments in markets of every size.”
