Suzi has been a nurse for 25 years.  She worked in the Burn Unit, Pediatric Trauma Unit, Pediatric ICS,  and Neonatal ICU for many years. In 2001, she received her Master’s in Nursing Education.  She taught pediatrics and theory, however, she missed her patient contact and went back to work for a hospital anesthesia group.  She worked for Lincoln Anesthesiology Group as a pre-op nurse, and also as an aesthetic nurse for Prairie Orthopaedic and Plastic Surgery.  In 2016 she graduated from Simmons College and became a board certified Nurse Practitioner.  She worked for Dr. Machado as an APRN and has a combined 15 years of experience doing laser hair removal and injectables. 

 

Unlike most individuals who are trained by product representatives, Suzi is set apart from others by the certifications she received from National Laser Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as being a Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist (CANS). Her certifications included advanced injectables, laser hair removal, IPL(photo facial), sclerotherapy, and chemical peels.  These courses, as well as continual trainings through Allergan and Gallderma provided her with an amazing experience, as well as her history of working side by side with plastic surgeons.  She has performed hundreds of cheek, lip, and other facial augmentations.  Suzi continues to invest in private trainings with top injectors in the United States, as well as trainings through continuing education and master injector trainings through Galderma and Allergan, to keep up with the latest trends as well as new techniques. She feels that aesthetic nursing is her true passion, and views it as a very delicate art form.
