Being a registered nurse brings incredible value to every patient I treat. My medical training and background is critical when dealing with people with pre-existing conditions, any medications, analyzing their anatomy and minimizing risk of side effects.
Just because you can get Botox and fillers anywhere doesn’t mean they are harmless. In fact, there are very real complications including tissue necrosis, vein occlusion and even blindness.
My nursing foundation keeps me vigilant because I know what can happen in the wrong hands. Continuing education is also a big deal in this specialty because so many new products and procedures are coming to market.
I attend 2-4 symposiums a year focused on keeping physicians, dermatologists, nurses and other practitioners current. My patients are getting the benefit of the latest vetted products and techniques.
