Charlotte McLachlan

R.N., Cosmetic Injector/Instructor

My great passion is working with patients to “refresh” their look naturally.  When patients experience an injectable treatment and look, DONE everyone looses.  Aesthetic injections combine art and science.  I am master trained and have many years of experience teaching and certifying physicians, nurse practitioners and registered nurses.

I have an acute eye for art and science. I know that no single approach is the right solution for every individual patient, and so I have been trained in a wide range of products including Allergan, Galderma and Merz.

My educational background includes a Nursing Degree, Business Degree and an Aesthetic Certification/License.  I combined the three and developed my approach to injectable medicine.  I have a passion for learning and continue to develop and master all treatment modalities, injectable.
