Laurie Ann Wood, RN is a registered nurse who brings 20 years of nursing coupled with 9 years of injectable experience to her role at our practice.
In her own words, “I take what I do very seriously. My nursing training brings out my artistic side. My patients look fresh, never obvious. Part of that is knowing when to stop. Getting a great look is predicated on finding someone with aesthetically appropriate judgment, discretion, and solid experience.”
Laurie regularly attends conferences and peer training where the latest in techniques and inside information are exchanged with other nurse injectors. The sheer depth and breadth of products on the market can be confusing for patients: “The injectable revolution has caused widespread misunderstanding about what can and cannot (or should and should not) be done. It’s important for me to know what the patient wants to accomplish so I can educate them on the best options available to achieve the look they desire.”
Wrinkle reduction, volume, and shaping are second-nature to Laurie. In addition to the forehead, crow’s feet, and nasolabial folds, she brings a special brand of artistry to the lips and jawline. She also performs hand rejuvenation with fillers and uses BOTOX® injections for neck muscles and underarm sweating treatments. Patients who regularly book appointments with Laurie comment on her gentleness and quick delivery: “I use very small needles and hold the tissue in a certain way, so most people don’t even need to be numbed. With schedules being so packed these days, my patients appreciate getting in and out quickly without sacrificing results.”
What’s the one thing a prospective patient can count on when booking with Laurie?
“I can be trusted not to overdo them. I am not selling BOTOX® Cosmetic and fillers—I’m sharing my knowledge of techniques and applications that will subtly improve their appearance.”
