Meet Our Team
It was the Emergency Room where Nina gained her deep medical knowledge and advanced procedural skills but it is aesthetics that won her heart. She has experience with neurotoxins, dermal fillers, Kybella, and Natural Growth Factor Injections therapy for face and under eye. Nina has a true passion in making her patients feel good about themselves. She takes the time with her patients, sets realistic goals and expectations, and creates an overall wonderful experience.
It was because of her skill set that Vanessa was asked to assist another nurse injector already working in aesthetics. It was here that Vanessa realized the potential aesthetic medicine has on patients. She saw first-hand the reaction her patients had when she corrected a problem area and they were able to see themselves more confidently.
Vanessa is experienced and certified at injecting neurotoxins, dermal fillers, Kybella, Natural Growth Factor Injections, Natural Growth Factor Injections and PDO Threads. She especially loves doing lip enhancement and giving them their full potential. Vanessa has a kind bedside manner and takes time to consult with her clients to make sure she understands their needs and expectations.
