She is a highly skilled facial rejuvenation injector with a perfectionist’s eye. She also has a passion for helping her patients create the naturally youthful appearance that so many of us long for as we age, through the use of injectable fillers, neurotoxins and PDO/PLLA threads. She is certified in the specialized training of Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy and has received extensive hands-on training in the most cutting-edge methods of employing neuromodulators and dermal fillers to achieve superb cosmetic results.

I love helping people radiate their inner beauty by simply accentuating their features and correcting their cosmetic concerns. It gives me such satisfaction to hear how much of a positive impact it can make on a person’s self-confidence, and I truly enjoy being able to provide that.
