EXPERT NURSE INJECTORS

All of our nurse injectors are incredible! Our nurse injectors go through extensive training in the operating room with Dr. Law, and they also complete cadaver training. Our nurse injectors are very conservative with the goal of providing a result that looks great, but doesn’t make someone look like they have had filler or Botox. We are amongst the top providers of Botox and filler in the country.
