SANTA MONICA, Ca. — Skin by Lovely™, a leading provider of medical aesthetics in California and Oregon, is pleased to announce the promotion of Marissa Abdo, MS, RN, CANS to Senior Injection Specialist and Clinical Administrator of the Santa Monica, CA location.

In her new role, she will be responsible for day-to-day leadership of the award-winning clinical team at Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica.

“We couldn’t be happier to promote Marissa to her new positions within Skin by Lovely,” said Lovely C. Laban, NP-C MSN, co-founder and clinical director of Skin by Lovely. “She has certainly earned it as she continues to re-invest in education to further her training and depth of knowledge in facial aesthetics. We are proud to have her as a leader on the team.”

Marissa is also celebrating the completion of a certification process to join an elite group of national trainers. The ACE training faculty was developed by Allergan, Inc., the makers of Botox®, Juvederm, Kybella, and Latisse, to ensure optimal patient outcomes across the United States. ACE trainers train physicians and other aesthetic healthcare practitioners on the safe and effective use of these industry-leading products. Marissa is one of just a handful of injectors from the state of California chosen to be a Kybella trainer.

“It’s an absolute honor to be part of this select team of practitioners,” said Marissa Abdo. “The
training embodies everything we stand for here at Skin by Lovely—to provide the highest level of patient satisfaction and safety. I look forward to putting my new training to work.”

Marissa is Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist — one of the first in the country to receive this prestigious national certification through the Plastic Surgical Nursing Certification Board. Additionally, she has been recognized as the largest individual injector of Botox® in the Santa Monica area. Marissa provides diverse knowledge and expertise from exposure to a wide range of aesthetics procedures working with one of Arizona’s most distinguished plastics surgeons as well as from her clinical background in acute care. Marissa’s passion is discovering her patient’s’ unique aesthetic goals, and working with them to develop a plan to make these goals a reality.
