MEDICAL AESTHETIC NURSE
A graduate of Queens University with a Bachelor of Nursing Science, and certified as a Medical Aesthetics Practitioner, Olenka is our Medical Aesthetic Nurse. She is registered with the College of Nurses of Ontario and is an active Registered Nurses Association of Ontario member. With her background in health promotion from the University of Western Ontario, she is a vocal advocate for preventative measures for your skin (sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen!).
Olenka has always had a passion for helping others and was drawn to nursing as it is a profession built on caring that mixes the art of treating the human condition as much as the science behind the medical care. Olenka’s first priority for every patient is to listen to their concerns, understand how they feel, and with them, discuss a plan of care. She is committed to providing a solution that doesn’t push any agenda, or focus on selling products, but simply to provide patients with effective solutions to address their skin care concerns.
As a child Olenka was teased about her body hair and as a young adult she experienced horrible acne. It was the dismissal of other health care providers to address her acne and her desire to remove unwanted hair that really pushed Olenka to research her own solutions to these problems. Olenka absolutely loves the freedom from shaving that laser hair removal provides and using effective skin care products with medical ingredients along with skin peels and microdermabrasion have helped her skin clear. Additionally, Olenka has had BOTOX as a preventative measure for wrinkles and as a treatment for migraines, as well as filler in her cheeks for contour and in her lips for natural enhancement. Her goal for herself, and for her patients, is to ensure a natural look.
