Master’s-level RN Marissa B. Abdo has added yet another certification to her already-impressive medical and educational credentials: the prestigious title of Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist.

Santa Monica, CA—Jul. 10, 2014—Santa Monica skin care clinic and medical corporation Skin by Lovely is proud to
announce the latest achievement of its clinical supervisor, Marissa B. Abdo, who recently earned one of the mos
t-coveted credentials in the field of aesthetic nursing: that of Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist.

Since passing the rigorous testing for the Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist (CANS) credential, Ms. Abdo — already a Master’s-level Registered Nurse who earned her BSN from Arizona State University and her MS from City University in London — has now officially become known professionally as Marissa B. Abdo, MS, RN, CANS. The addition of the CANS designation to the Skin by Lovely clinical supervisor’s resume is certain to bring even greater recognition to the popular L.A. area medical aesthetics practice.

About Marissa B. Abdo, MS, RN, CANS

Ms. Abdo brings to her position of clinical supervisor a rich background in facial aesthetics and skin care — a specialty built on a solid foundation of acute care experience gained through her work at highly respected New York and Arizona hospitals. Her later, more narrowly focused work with one of Arizona’s most renowned plastic surgery practices has helped further refine the skills that have prepared the highly capable RN for her current specialty.

While Marissa Abdo will undoubtedly use her newly earned CANS credential in aesthetic nursing to provide even more wide-ranging aesthetic options for her patients, the most satisfying part of her profession will always come down to the difference she can make in the lives of those who depend on her expertise in providing skin care treatments that enhance their attractiveness while appearing completely natural. As she describes it, “My favorite thing is when patients come back after treatment and tell me that everyone noticed but nobody knew that they had treatment.”  To her, that’s the most successful treatment.
