Our Flawless Med Spa Staff Albuquerque
Heather Badal, Owner
After working for over a decade at Intel Corporation in Public Relations & eBusiness Development, Heather left Corporate America to work with her husband in managing their small business, Mobile Medical. At that time, Mobile Medical was leasing lasers to hospitals across the state of New Mexico. This was great because it allowed people in rural New Mexico to receive high standard of care without having to travel to a large city like Albuquerque. In 2011, she decided to apply her knowledge of lasers and business towards opening her own medical spa, Flawless Medical Spa. Her vision was to create a welcoming environment where everyone would feel comfortable asking questions about aesthetic treatments and learning from expert nurses about how to achieve their desired results. “Several years ago, I went to a Medical Spa and I left feeling uncomfortable and a little depressed when I saw the estimated cost of $5,500 for the treatments.” That experience was one of the inspirations behind starting Flawless. At Flawless we offer people the ability to pay for their treatments over time in the form of an affordable monthly membership (similar to a gym). Over the years, Flawless Med Spa has evolved and we are always introducing new memberships as we bring in new technologies. My goal is for everyone to leave feeling good and wanting more. One of the things I love to hear from our clients is, “My membership is almost done, I can hardly wait to start my next one!”
Pam Blair, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC, Medical Director
Pamela believes that living a happy, healthy lifestyle is the absolute best thing we can do to slow down the inevitable aging process. She understands that as we mature with wisdom and experience there are less appealing changes that occur in our outward appearance and can make us appear older than we feel. She believes that feeling good on the “inside” should match with how we look on the “outside.” In order to help her patients feel good on the “outside,” she applies her in-depth knowledge of facial structure with state-of-the-art technology to ensure that each Flawless client receives an individually tailored treatment and restores their skin’s natural glow. “Working at Flawless allows me to meld preventative and proactive treatments to help our clients look and feel their best.” Pam is always researching the science behind what we do at Flawless and investigating new technologies / methods to incorporate within our practice. Pam completed her Graduate Studies at Indiana Wesleyan University achieving a Master’s of Science in Nursing and is currently Board Certified in Family Medicine and is an active member of The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. Pam has had extensive training in cosmetic injections with expert plastic surgeons in Scottsdale, Beverly Hills and New York City. Prior to coming to Flawless in 2011, Pam worked in Family Practice providing physical, emotional, and spiritual care for her patients and their families. “My goal is to participate in the creation of healthier and more satisfied lives within my community. My belief is that everything we do is inspired by our own personal quest. It’s time to take good care of ourselves. We’re never too young to start protecting, renewing and nourishing our skin’s youthful glow. ”

Tatum sees the benefit of non invasive techniques offered at Flawless because it allows her clients to reap the rewards of a more youthful appearance without very much “down-time.” Tatum takes a tremendous amount of pride in making sure her patients are educated and comfortable during the course of their treatments. When not a work, Tatum is an avid cook preparing some of the best dishes representative of the Southwest (her pinto beans are AMAZING).
