Who is 
Ann Vlahadmis?

Ann has recently joined the team at Body Polish Day Spa as our nurse injector, specializing in anti-wrinkle treatments using neuromodulators (Dysport/Botox) and dermal fillers.

As a Nurse Practitioner, Ann is an independent health professional who has achieved proficiency in advanced health assessment skills within a clinic setting. Nurse practitioners use advanced clinical knowledge to autonomously perform physical exams, order and interpret diagnostic and laboratory tests, diagnose and

treat illness and are licensed to prescribe pharmaceuticals, and can perform specific minor surgical procedures.

Ann has a deep passion for aesthetics. She completed her neuromodulator injection program through the University of Alberta, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. She completed her dermal filler training through The Filler Course, which is the gold standard for filler training in Canada. Ann pays very close attention by listening to her clients concerns and what they want to improve, she has learned that people usually request “a little something” to make their skin a bit smoother, make them look more youthful, more rested and refreshed while at the same time leaving people guessing as to whether or not they have had “work done”. When Ann provides aesthetic treatments for her patient’s her intent is not to change the character of someone’s look, just to change how rested they look!
