Want to get to know our beautiful Rachel for yourself?
We thought you might, so we sat down and asked her questions ranging from what her hidden talents are to what her favorite product is to inject here at Skin by Lovely in the following 10 Questions with Rachel Pangilinan >
1: Where are you from originally and what brought you to Portland?
I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. Years ago, my husband and I fell in love with the Pacific Northwest on our first vacation together. Fast forward five years later and here we are now!
2: Out of all the specializations for Nurse Practitioners, what led you to the field of aesthetics?
Initially as a patient of aesthetic treatments, I knew this was the field I wanted to be in. The impact this field can make on an individual is truly amazing! I also had a strong desire to be more creative and autonomous in my practice. Aesthetics is exactly where I belong!
3: In your opinion- what sets Skin by Lovely apart?
Skin by Lovely is truly unique. We focus all of our attention towards a small menu of treatments. This allows us to master the art of facial aesthetics- giving our patients the best natural-looking results imaginable.
4: Do you have a favorite product or area of the face to inject?
Juvederm® Voluma dermal filler in the cheeks – no doubt! It provides such a subtle enhancement with a huge impact.
5: Any secret weapon skincare products we should know about?
As a sun-lover, SPF is a non-negotiable. SkinMedica’s Total Defense and Repair is definitely something I can’t go without. When you love being outside as much as I do, wearing sunscreen daily can dramatically slow down the aging process!
6: What’s your favorite thing about your job at Skin by Lovely?
Handing a mirror to my patient after their treatment and catching that huge smile. This is everything.
7: Do you have any hidden talents?
I’m very crafty! I love to sew and knit.
8: What is the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
Four years ago, I moved to Hawaii within weeks notice with a boyfriend who had a great job opportunity in Maui. No regrets! Best experience ever… and he’s now my husband. So it all worked out.
9: What do you find most inspiring?
Powerful and independent women!
10: What’s your favorite quote and/or personal mantra?
“The day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit.”
