The Plastic Surgery Center now has an amazing nurse injector, Audrey Forastiere, whose skills our patients have been raving about. Audrey’s unique combination of knowledge, professionalism and expertise along with her ability to inject comfortably results in the most positive patient experience. These attributes open up the schedule for Botox and Dermal Filler appointments at the Plastic Surgery Center. You’ll want to schedule a consultation with Audrey to get a sense of how much you’re going to enjoy having her work her magic on your skin.
Audrey has worked at my side and she clearly embodies my philosophy, standards and values. If you’ve never worked with a Nurse Injector before I invite you to consider the once unheard of Physician Assistants in the medical field. Now trusted on a par with the physicians they work with, they have opened access to practices that were impossible or difficult at best to get into.
According to a recent online article addressing the advantages of Nurse Injectors, the author writes, “Nurses in hospitals and other facilities are allowed to inject medications that are more risky than fillers and other similar injectables such as morphine, Demerol and other toxic medications that are injected without the direct supervision of a physician.” The article continues, “Botox® Cosmetic isn’t nearly as risky.”
Audrey has an advanced certificate in Botox and Dermal Fillers. As a member of American Society of Plastic Surgical Nursing (ASPSN) and the Society of Plastic Surgical Skin Care Specialist (SPSSCS) she is continuously learning and staying current with the leading esthetic trends. Audrey’s main concern is the satisfaction, safety and comfort of all patients that are looking to achieve a more refreshed youthful look.
If you’ve been dreaming about having younger looking skin, perhaps this New Year will be the time for you to experience the boost in confidence and youthful excitement of a non-surgical procedure. When you come to our office and visit with Audrey, she’ll bring you up to speed and help you to decide when it’s time to explore one of the newer procedures.
Botox® Cosmetic puts off the signs of aging. Botox has been safely used for more than ten years. It visibly smoothes and softens moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet around the eyes, neckband creases and wrinkled lip lines. The procedure is virtually pain-free, with most people experiencing the pinprick sensation of the injection. It is so easy you can have a treatment over a lunch break.
Juvederm®: From the creators of Botox®, Juvederm Injectable Gel is designed to restore youthful skin. Considered the “next generation” dermal filler, it is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in skin helping to add volume and hydration.
Radiesse®: This innovative product is new to the cosmetic procedure world, having been used for years in dental, facial and orthopedic surgery. Radiesse is also made of a substance that occurs naturally in the body, consisting of calcium hydroxylapatite, a normal constituent of bone. It is amazing for filling the folds around the nose. Treatments are performed in our office and take about 30 minutes.
Restylane®: Another cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin. This non-surgical procedure is quick with no recovery time.
