Prior Experience
 
Prior to joining Seiler Skin, Adina enjoyed 14 years at The University of Alabama at Birmingham as the Paramedical Aesthetician in the Division of Plastic Surgery.  She has had the pleasure of working with world renowned Plastic Surgeons including Dr. Luis Vasconez.   During her time at UAB she was involved in the aesthetic and general care of both pre and post-operative patients.   She assisted with wound care, medical grade skin care consultations and long term maintenance of skin health following cosmetic facial procedures.  Adina also provided the service of camouflage tattooing of the nipple areola complex for breast reconstruction patients.
 
Formal Training
 
In addition to her formal education, training and experience before joining Seiler Skin, Adina has undergone intense and thorough training directly under Dr. Seiler and his cosmetic laser training company.  Dr. Seiler has trained and board examined physicians and practitioners in 11 different countries including over 100 practices in the US.  Adina has completed her Exilis, Lamprobe and Laser Hair Removal Training under Dr. Seiler.  This training included 6 months of initial and ongoing education in laser and light theory, physics, safety, philosophical and practical application, patient and condition diagnosis and management, physical technique, device parameter settings, and patient care management before, during, and after procedures.  She spent several months observing procedures performed by Dr. Seiler, then graduated to performing them under direct supervision of Dr. Seiler.  Adina loves the benefit of working alongside of Dr. Seiler because he is constantly and thoroughly involved in every patient’s care and routinely continues to offer continuing education in the laser and light procedure specialty.  Patients love Adina’s ability to safely and effectively communicate with and treat them and their needs.
