Top Skin Care Tip
“Use sunscreen every day! UVA rays are always strong, regardless of the weather. Sunscreen formulas are now so advanced that they feel like your favorite moisturizer and fit your skin type like a glove. They also boast benefits for your skin, including oil control, hydration, brightening, antioxidant protection, blue light defense, and wrinkle-fighting. I love SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair SPF 34.“
“Botox and Dysport are my favorites. Both of these injectables are easy, time-efficient and can help tremendously with reduction of facial lines and wrinkles, decreased oil production and facial contouring to provide a younger, refreshed appearance.”
Best Client Transformation Story
“I immediately think about a client who had visible wrinkles and discoloration due to years of sun exposure and a lack of a good skincare routine. We came up with a treatment plan that included Botox, microneedling, and a daily skincare regimen. After just a few treatments, she began to see an improvement in her skin appearance, such as visibly refined skin texture, tone, and overall quality.”
What I Love Most About My Work
“Being a nurse in the field of aesthetics is very unique and rewarding. This is a very positive, energetic, and satisfying working environment. Like in any field of health, science is constantly advancing and The Skin Center is at the absolute forefront of providing the most modern, state-of-the-art treatments available. I learn something new from every patient I treat and every provider I work with.
