Kandice Crow, RN, BSN

Master Nurse Injector & National Allergan Trainer

Kandice is a Registered Nurse and has worked in the healthcare field for 10 years. She graduated from Chamberlain College of Nursing with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and started her nursing career in St. Louis, MO.

While in St. Louis, Kandice began her professional career at Mercy Hospital focusing in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Room. After a few years in the hospital setting helping patients feel better, Kandice was ready to combine her expert nursing knowledge with her sincere desire to help patients feel and look their best.

This led to her employment as a Nurse Injector at Aurora Medical Spa in St. Louis, MO. She knew from day one that she was home. From the state-of-the-art facility to the extremely well trained staff, Aurora Medical Spa was very unique! Aurora treats their patients and their employees like family and always put the patient first.

The number of patients that came into the doors of Aurora in St. Louis on a daily basis was more than what some Medical Spas see in a month. This gave Aurora injectors an advantage over a lot of other medical spas- lots of EXPERIENCE! In 2018, Kandice and her family decided to head south to Austin, TX! She knew one thing that had to come with her, and that was Aurora Medical Spa.

Kandice believes that with her genuine desire to help patients’ look and feel their absolute best and the knowledge that comes along with being an Aurora Medical Spa nurse that the city of Austin and surrounding areas would benefit greatly from having an Aurora!

One step inside and we think you’ll understand why!
