Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist Injector
Lisa Machak RN, CANS
I started with Dr Baxter in 2000 as an OR and PACU nurse, doing Botox and filler injections in clinic. I am blessed to have worked my way into becoming an Aesthetic Injection Specialist exclusively … that wasn’t a “thing” in nursing school. Lucky me, I guess. I love what I do and the relationships I’ve made along the way!
The past decade has been a time of expansive growth in the aesthetic injectable industry, both in products and techniques. I have had the good fortune to have trained with some of the finest plastic surgeons and master injectors in the world. I gained my specialty certification as a Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist (CANS) in 2014, the inaugural year of examination, and have maintained my active status through continuing education.
I returned with 20+ years of experience injecting and am thrilled to be back. I look forward to seeing old friends, meeting new ones and spending time with YOU focusing on YOUR face.
