Mark R. Chandler, MD has over 10 years of experience as a physician. He is beloved by his patients for his calm demeanor, artistic eye, and attention to detail.

In addition to providing aesthetic services at Mountain Radiance, Dr. Chandler is an emergency medicine physician at Pardee Hospital in Hendersonville, NC. Dr. Chandler completed his bachelor’s degree in Bioengineering at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA, and received his medical degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine in Miami, FL.

Nurse Injector & Licensed Esthetician

Sarah takes a holistic and artistic approach to facial rejuvenation as both a Licensed Nurse Injector and Licensed Esthetician. Sarah is known by her patients for her calm, listen-first approach: she will learn about your goals, evaluate your skin, and educate you about the treatments available. She wants each patient to feel beautiful in their skin by helping them achieve a natural, refreshed look.

Sarah has always held a passion for skin care and for helping to promote others’ well-being and confidence. Originally from Hickory, North Carolina, Sarah studied nursing at Appalachian State University in Boone and at Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk, where she earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing in 2019. After graduating from nursing school, Sarah made Asheville her home and spent 3 years working as an emergency room nurse at Pardee Medical Center. In 2021, she embraced the opportunity to specialize in aesthetic medicine with Mountain Radiance.

Outside of our office, Sarah is a painter who works in acrylic and watercolor. She enjoys hiking the Western North Carolina mountains, and has recently gotten married and adopted a kitten named Rosie.

Beyond her medical training, Sarah became a Licensed Esthetician to further her specialty in aesthetic skin treatments and offer clients more comprehensive care. She also received training for injectable neurotoxin (i.e. Botox) and dermal filler at Aesthetic Consulting and Training (ACT), the southeast’s premiere aesthetics program for injectables.

Her favorite treatments to perform are complementary combinations, such as Botox to stop wrinkles paired with customized fillers to enhance your natural features and promote younger-looking skin.

Physician Assistant & Injector

Christina is a medical professional with 10 years of experience in intensive care, critical care, and emergency medicine. Christina earned her degree as a Physician’s Assistant from South College in Knoxville in 2013 and has been living in Asheville for the past 7 years. Though originally from Charlotte, she finds Asheville to be a great fit due to her love of the mountains and outdoors. Christina gained medical experience in both the ICU and ER (with our very own Dr. Mark!) before making the transition into aesthetic medicine.

In addition to aesthetics training with Dr. Mark, Christina underwent training with Allergan, the makers of Botox and Juvéderm. She specializes in injectables and also offers laser treatments to help her patients achieve their aesthetic goals. Christina takes a custom approach with each patient and strives to help them enhance their wonderful, natural beauty or modify things they prefer to change, empowering them to feel comfortable and happy with their appearance.

Christina is passionate about being a PA because she enjoys the constant challenge of medicine and the ability to help people in an ever-changing and rapidly improving field. Even more so, she is grateful for the opportunity to make people feel like the best, most elevated version of themselves. 

When not working with her patients, Christina spends most of her free time hiking or fly fishing in the back country of Western NC. She enjoys all of the great food, breweries, wineries, and music that Asheville has to offer, and loves to spend time with her border collie mix, Izzy.
