Philosophy: “I’ve been an aesthetic nurse for over a decade now and I still look forward going to work every day. My work plays a big part of my life and I believe that the only way to do great work is to love what you do. Aesthetics is my passion because I help all my patients not only to look good but also to feel good about themselves. Being an aesthetic nurse brings out not only the nurse in me but also that artist that I’ve always been. I treat every patient like a work of art, and like every masterpiece, it takes hard work and dedication to perfect your craft. The Mona Lisa wouldn’t be as beautiful if Da Vinci had not dedicated his life for it, right?”.  Abby comes from a family of doctors and medical practitioners and so it was easy for her to follow this path as well.

Abby continues to improve herself by making sure she is up to date to the latest trends, technology and procedures to help her patients achieve their full potential. “I look at social media as a platform to inspire people and that is usually what my content is all about. If I can change a life with one post, then I will” – ABBY VILLARUEL
