My name is Shaz Mahdavi and I am a Registered Nurse at Advanced Laser Clinic. I have my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from York University. I love being an aesthetic nurse because it allows me to help people feel more confident in their own skin and at the same time address their concern about how they look and feel from the outside in. I am passionate about continuing education and always keeping up with the most recent treatments and therapy in the market. I also love to educate my clients so they can make the best decisions regarding their treatment plan.
