Lisa is a member of the American Society for Plastic Surgical Nurses and has been a registered nurse since 1985. She brings 21 years of experience in the aesthetic skin care field to her current practice. She began her nursing career as a student nurse for a prominent dermatologist and board certified cosmetic surgeon, where she learned the general dermatologic principles of all skin types, the foundation of her current practice. Lisa gained experience in multiple skin peel procedures, such as the TCA and Glycolic acid peels frequently performed today, and she was among the first group of nurses in the state of CT to be certified as a collagen injector. She furthered her training with Dr. Zein Obagi, founder and creator of the most popular medically-dispensed skin care line today, Obagi skin care. Lisa also trained in sclerotherapy, a common injection treatment for spider veins, as well as medical micro-pigmentation. In 1989, Lisa collaborated with a renowned plastic surgeon to establish a skin care center within his reconstructive surgery practice. Technological and medical advances were carefully evaluated and adopted only after proven safe. Lisa’s skin care practice grew to incorporate Botox, Restylane, Sculptra, Radiesse, Cosmoderm, and Cosmoplast treatments. Lisa simultaneously extended her skills to the plastic surgery side of the practice, where she became an expert in aesthetic and reconstructive procedures. She taught pre- and post-operative care to patients, provided them with information about various reconstructive procedures, and managed the operating suites in the practice. In August 2004, Lisa became the first registered nurse in CT to open her own skin rejuvenation center. Lisa practices under the medical supervision of plastic surgeon Rick Rosen, M.D. The two have combined their 40+ years of experience to provide a comprehensive range of cosmetic services, from botox to abdominoplasty to breast reconstruction and beyond. OUR SERVICES Radiesse Radiesse is a non-animal based synthetic calcium soft-tissue filler that consists primarily of mineral content suspended in a gel. The effects of this treatment typically last nine to twelve months, making Radiesse one of the most long-lasting forms of skin rejuvenation. Radiesse can be used for augmentation and correction of furrows. Restylane Restylane, one of the most popular soft-tissue fillers today, is made from non-animal based hylauric acid. Restylane is frequently used in conjunction with Botox and has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates of our all available treatments. Restylane was FDA-approved in 2003. Scupltra Sculptra is an injectble implant made from poly 1 lactic acid, which is both biocompatible and biodegradable. Sculptra is used primarily to soften the face by restoring volume, producing a more youthful appearance. Sculptra works by stimulating the collagen supply within the body, which results in added volume to the face along the jawline, mid-face, and cheeks. Sculptra also reverses hollowness under the eyes, nasolabila folds, and chin area. Sculptra is given in a series of 3-5 treatments, and the results typically last for up to two years. Sculptra was FDA-approved in 2004. Botox Botox is a purified protein administered in a simple injection. It works by relaxing the facial muscles, which improves the appearance of moderate to severe lines. Botox is used primarily in the upper facial area, but is also very effective in the lower facial area when used in conjunction with soft tissue fillers such as Restylene or Radiesse. The results of Botox treatment typically last 3-5 months. Botox can also be used to reduce excessive sweating of the palms and underams, and the results of treatment typically last 6-9 months. Botox was FDA-approved in 2002. TCA peels TCA peels are used in conjunction with our Obagi skin care product line for a truly global skin rejuvenation treatment. This combination can be used to repair skin damage from years of sun exposure, reduce the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores, and reverse the effects of acne. Endermologie The first FDA-approved treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite, Endermologie consists of a series of 14 treatments initially performed 1-2 times/week, followed by 1-2 times/month for maintenance. Occasionally, a second series of treatments is necessary to maintain the desired results. Light Sheer Laser Hair Removal This is an FDA-approved permanent hair reduction treatment for all skin types. Light Sheer truly is the world’s most advanced treatment for the effective removal of unwanted hair for both men and women. Laser treatment is typically given in a series of 4-6 visits. Parisian Peel Microdermabrasion, is a gentle, non-chemical way to renew and revitalize your skin. This treatment can reduce sun damage, fine lines, and enlarged pores through a gentle abrasive action that removes the outer layer of skin, revealing a healthier layer beneath. Obagi Skin Care Available only through a health care provider, Obagi products improve the function and health of your skin by transforming your skin at the cellular level. Along with TCA peels and microdermabrasion, Obagi products can treat and even reverse many skin conditions such as sun damage, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne, rosacea, melasma, and the effects of aging. Products each sold separately. Obagi skin system Xtreme Lashes A revolutionary new product that lengthens and thicken lashes. Xtreme Lashes are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to each individual eyelash on a hair by hair basis for a natural, elegant luscious look. Custom Facials Deep cleansing medical facials with or without light chemical peels. We also offer custom facials for acne and teenage skin. Our medical facials are designed to refine, repair, and detoxify your complexion. Facials are frequently customized to include the use of a glycolic acid peel. Photorejuvenation Laser Hair removal An FDA approved Intense Pulsed Light that has patented state of the art technology, using pulsing and light for maximum results, comfort and safety, in treating sun damage, age spots, rosacea, and broken capillaries. Any area can be treated, most commonly the face, neck, chest and hands. Juvederm Juvederm is a non animal-sourced hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler that provides smooth long lasting correction of facial wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar that retains water, absorbing more than 1000 times its weight. HA is found throughout all living organisms, which is why there is no need for testing prior to use. There are two formulations of Juvederm, Ultra is more versatile for less deep wrinkles and folds, and Ultra Plus is a higher concentrated cross linked formula for volumizing deeper folds. Juvederm lasts six to nine months before additional correction is needed. Juvederm was FDA approved in 2006.uscity.net directoryNorwalk Connecticut Portal
