My Approach to Aesthetics

Since the beginning of my career, my approach to aesthetics has always been pure. Being a nurse practitioner is much more than Botox, injections, and fillers. It’s so much more than that. It’s seeing confidence and happiness every single day. It’s about having the ability to help people feel good about themselves.

I help boost people’s confidence. I help transform lives. And I care about each and every one of the clients who sit in my chair. For real, the best part of my job is getting to know and love each one of my patients, not only as clients but as friends too. There’s no better feeling in the world than having happy patients message me after their appointment saying they absolutely love what they see in the mirror.

I think when some people hear about my specialty of “aesthetics” or hear the word “botox” there is some stigma attached. People can be quick to jump to the idea that it’s all about vanity. But these people don’t get the pleasure of seeing what I see every single day. They don’t get to see the woman who can barely get out of bed because her husband just passed away. Or the young, professional male who is suffering from some major self-esteem issues due to his skin and appearance. I get to lift these people up!!!

I get to help people at their low points. I get to put a smile on people’s faces. I get to make people HAPPY. Botox is SO much more than erasing wrinkles. I get to help fix a small issue on the outside that is helping fix a way bigger issue on the inside. I love getting to connect with my patients and help them feel like the best version of themselves.

If I have the pleasure of meeting you and you sit in my chair, you’ll notice me stopping to look at your face from all angles, several times. I promise I’m not crazy, I’m just a major perfectionist when it comes to my practice. It annoys my husband, but I promise it’s a positive thing when we’re dealing with precision and your beautiful face!

When people ask me about what I do, I sometimes feel like I want to scream out of the rooftops, “It isn’t like the Real Housewives or Kardashians!!!” I mean, I do love me some Bravo (who doesn’t?!) but for real, it isn’t like that when it’s done properly! Botox and fillers can get a bad rap, and I just want everyone to know there’s a tasteful way to go about these treatments. Every day I hear the same stereotypes over and over. “You’ll look like plastic”, “It will ruin your face”. It makes me sad because it is so not the case. I get to work with real, hard-working everyday people who sit in my chair and leave feeling 10x more confident. It doesn’t matter if your best friend tells you, “you’re pretty enough already!”, it’s all about how YOU feel.

Every single one of my treatments are meant to enhance your natural beauty. And girl, let me tell you, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. The goal is never to change your look or add volume to places you never had to begin with. When you hear of or see people like this, it’s because they are overdoing it. If we’re simply addressing areas where you want to soften or refresh, you will look the same after, just a few years younger!

I never ever talk anyone into doing injections or treatments. I only educate them on their options when they feel they are ready for it themselves. It’s your decision and everyone should do what makes them feel like their absolute best self. I’m here to educate you on what treatment is best for your needs so that you can and come out looking natural and feeling like your most beautiful self!

Whenever a client books with me I always look at them with a multi-faceted approach. There’s not one way, or one set of treatments that ‘have to’ be done. I love when patients tell me their goals and allow me to educate them on what would best suit their needs!

I feel so blessed that I love what I get to do every single day. The fact that I can help make a few small changes on the outside help someone SO much on the inside makes me so incredibly happy.

If my approach to aesthetics interests you, or if you have any further questions about any of the procedures I offer, please reach out! I am here to help and would love to talk to you further.
