Mary Cartwright, RN
Mary has been in Seattle for over 40 years transplanted from Los Angeles, California. Her interest in medical cosmetics started after nursing school with basic dermatology in 2000. With her background in cosmetics and medical dermatology she has a natural eye for beauty and anatomy. She was taught basic botox and lasers alongside the Doctors she was working with. After 2000 she was recruited to work exclusively in cosmetics. Since then she has mastered the art of working with patients to improve their skin gracefully.
Her path to medical cosmetics was a roundabout way starting with beauty degree, then a bachelors degree in speech communication at the University of Washington, and then her nursing degree from Regents in New York. All came together to be able to provide skin health and beauty today. She continues to learn and educate herself in furthering her skills for skin maintenance.
