About Angela

Angela Noviello has been working in the field of Esthetics for over two decades: she has owned and directed with her family for 10 years one of the most prestigious esthetic schools in Milan and has been managing for 18 years a Functional Esthetics, Esthetic Medicine and Plastic Surgery Center, with her brother Sergio, a Cosmetic Surgeon.

Since May 2013, she has been the Director for Italy and Coordinator for Europe of OTI Oncology Training International – Oncology Esthetics, the institution that trains and certifies, world-wide, esthetic practitioners authorized to work on cancer patients.

When Angela learnt about OTI Oncology Esthetics and became acquainted with her founder Morag Currin, she lost no time, she flew to the U.S. where she attended the course and took the exam for the international OE certification.

Angela has been the first OE certified esthetician in Europe: she was keen on offering safe beauty treatments to her customers who, because of cancer therapy, couldn’t take care of themselves at a time when, instead, they needed to feel beautiful and rediscover their femininity which, unfortunately, treatments still tend to penalize: hair loss, pale skin, rashes, to name a few scars the disease leaves on the body and that are a constant reminder of their condition of sickness, leading to a loss of identity as women.

Back in Italy, Angela was involved in several projects in Italian Hospitals.

She has trained and Certified more than 400 Beauticians. She has brought the OTI method in over 40 Hospitals in Italy.
