Beautifully You – Caitlyn Tarver, RN

Southern Surgical Arts Beauty Bar

for Self-Care

Although Caitlyn Tarver has been a nurse for five years, when she found her way to the aesthetic nursing field earlier this year, she knew she had found her calling. With a passion for beauty and a desire to help others, Tarver’s philosophy is centered on practicing self-care and bolstering confidence. “Self-care is an important aspect when it comes to a person’s overall mental and physical health and well-being,” she explains. “Utilizing my knowledge and skills to boost my clients’ confidence and improve their self-image is what it’s all about.” Tarver, who is also a mother of two, draws on her role as a mom to make sure her clients feel loved and completely at ease. “Loving on people is just in my nature, and I want my clients to know that I truly care about them and their wants and needs,” she says.

I can’t brag enough on how amazing Caitlyn was. She was very professional, confident, and knowledgeable. Her work was quick, painless, and done beautifully. I would highly recommend her. She did a phenomenal job.”

1. What influenced you to pursue your career?

Aesthetic nursing has been where I’ve wanted to be since I first became a nurse. I have had a passion for all things beauty since I was a little girl, and I have wanted to be a nurse for as long as I can remember. This is the field where I can combine my dream job with my passion for beauty. 

2. What would you consider to be your main strengths?

My biggest strength is definitely attention to detail. I incorporate my eye for detail with my artistic and creative side to provide my clients with their desired results.

3. How do you develop a plan for each client?

First, I sit down with each client and talk to them about their goals. I ask what bothers them and what changes they would like to see with treatment. I assess their medical history, age, anatomy, and body features to offer my professional opinion on how to treat them correctly while also giving realistic expectations.

4. What is your philosophy when it comes to the care of your clients?

I want all my clients to know that they are beautiful to begin with. My goal is to radiate kindness, positivity, but also empathy when it comes to an individual’s insecurities about themselves. 

5. What is your best advice for clients?

Self-care is so important. If something is bothering you and making you feel less confident in yourself, it can directly affect your daily life so significantly. Never be embarrassed to seek change.
