Nursing and Clinical Team

Helen

Registered Nurse and Injection Specialist

Helen graduated from the University of Ottawa with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Nursing on the Dean’s list, Cum Laude.

Helen has practiced clinical nursing for nearly a decade and has always had a keen eye and interest in the aesthetic industry. While practicing as a specialized certified oncology nurse in hematology and radiation oncology at The Ottawa Hospital, Helen knew she wanted a career where she can amalgamate her passion for aesthetics and nursing.

As one of our primary providers of injectable services (neuromodulators, fillers, mesotherapy, PRP), Helen has completed her specialized training in Neuromodulators, Fillers, Cosmetic Lasers & Microdermabrasion, Business of Medical Aesthetics, and Sclerotherapy, and is a 3X certified lash technician. She has worked closely with Dr. Javidnia to become an expert injector who is highly respected by our patients. Helen consistently stays abreast of the latest techniques and products in the field by attending regular medical meetings and training conferences. She brings this information and new skills to our patients and shares in Dr. Javidnia’s philosophy that cosmetic treatments should always aim to produce the most natural appearing results. Our patients continuously feedback their extreme satisfaction in Helen’s impeccable care and eye for the best aesthetic outcomes. She produces reliably natural treatments while meeting her patient’s aesthetic goals. 

As one of our primary operating room nurses and coordinators, Helen has completed specialized training including certification in Advanced Cardiac Life Support. She maintains our communications with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario for our state of the art operating facility, meeting stringent requirements for maintenance of our Out of Hospital Surgical Facility accreditation. She is a reliable and compassionate partner throughout our surgical process. Our patients take comfort in Helen’s consummate professionalism and evident commitment to providing the best pre and post-surgical care as well as safe and flawless surgical experience.

Sandie

Registered Nurse and Injection Specialist

Sandie brings over 30 years of nursing experience to the AēstheteMD team. Having started her career in the medical/surgical unit at Hawkesbury General Hospital, she earned a post- graduate certificate specializing in Operating Room Nursing. Sandie relocated to Ottawa in 2001. While still retaining her position in the Hawkesbury operating room, she worked at multiple dental clinics in the Ottawa region performing nurse sedations and leading operating rooms as Head OR Nurse. Working closely with facial surgeons peaked Sandie’s interest in the exciting emerging field of anti-aging treatments.

Sandie was asked to join a facial and cosmetic surgery centre in Ottawa in 2005. This led to a path of facial aesthetics which she has been practicing for over 17 years. During this time, Sandie is grateful to have had many opportunities to hone her skills as a Nurse Injector; from international conferences in Rome and London gaining exposure to leading edge techniques and technology on the global stage, to the many seminars and courses annually in Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa.

Sandie’s mission statement is to help her patients become “ their best self”. Her philosophy is truly patient centred….to listen to her patients’ concerns and to assess and offer options and guidance based on their goals. A relationship based on trust and mutual respect with her patients is paramount to Sandie’s practice. It is about the person, not just the face. She offers treatments which provide a natural and refreshed look.

As a dedicated health care professional, Sandie has always had an interest in natural health and loves to research and build on her medical experience and knowledge as a nurse and look at options that compliment health in general. Aging brings changes to the body that sometimes we don’t understand. For women in particular, going through the menopausal journey can accelerate aging…..Tempering this with natural looking treatments goes a long way to looking and feeling great.

In her spare time, Sandie loves to travel and explore. She golfs, loves to dance, goes to the gym and recently has tried her hand at pickle ball…a little like tennis. She enjoys entertaining, fine dining and enjoying time with her family and friends. Sandie has 2 children and 2 grandchildren and a mother that, over 90 years, is her best friend!

Sandie had the opportunity to work with Dr. Javidnia for a number of years prior to the opening of AestheteMD. From consults to surgeries, she came to know Dr. Javidnia as a highly skilled surgeon, caring and considerate, always listening and offering advice and treatment options. As a team, they are fully aligned in their philosophy of the highest standards of patient centered care. We are excited to add Sandie to our AestheteMD Team and to welcome her patients to our Centre for Surgical and Aesthetic Excellence!
