Charmaine BadePractice Director- Los Angeles & Nurse Practitioner, RN, BSN, MSN
Charmaine’s professional background started as an RN in 2002. Her nursing experience began in acute care telemetry for UCLA Ronald Reagan Hospital and registry shifts at Cedars Sinai Hospital. She then spent five years as a senior manager for a nurse registry with a part-time position as field supervisor for home health. She then became a circulating and pre/post-op nurse in plastic surgery. In 2009, she came across an ad for Botox in a nursing journal and within a few months she earned cosmetic certifications for fillers, neurotoxins, and light-based procedures. Since then she discovered the non-invasive aesthetic world to be her niche in nursing.
Since 2009 she has been injecting and providing unparalleled care in aesthetics. By 2011, Charmaine joined the original BHRC location in LA soon after its grand opening making her the longest running employee of BHRC. With her extensive experience, attention to detail, and unique ability to deliver patient satisfaction, her patient retention is unmatched. She believes that beauty is a natural part of feeling confident and strong, a key element in integrated wellness. She is aware that people are paying for a skill more so than a syringe of filler, neurotoxin, or treatment and therefore values life-long continuing education. What resonates heavily with Charmaine are the working relationships she has developed with her patients, and her interests lie in how she can achieve optimal outcomes with holistic and realistic considerations. She is committed to delivering artistic excellence in aesthetics and overall wellness, within a safe and ethical framework.
She is a native of Montréal, Québec but for now enjoys the warmth of LA. She earned summa cum laude for her BSN, a 3.92 GPA for her MSN, and her most recent accomplishment was passing her national board examination as an Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner.
