She is an expert in all types of skin care rejuvenation, including Bellafill, Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Restylane, Perlane, and Restylane Silk, Sculptra, Radiesse, Botox and Dysport. She is one of only 2 Registered Nurses in Fairfield County who have been chosen by Allergen for their prestigious designation as an ACE Certified Speaker and Trainer. Only those who have shown the highest level of expertise and have demonstrated a true understanding of facial anatomy and muscle groups are even considered for this program. Being an Allergan Ace Injector means she is in the country’s top 1.5% for patient retention. This combined with Lisa’s commitment and specialized individual approach to each patient, expertise in the latest advancements, excellence in care and safety, make her the trusted choice in Fairfield County. Lisa remains committed to excelling at her artistry in injectable fillers and non- surgical alternatives. Lisa is especially proud of her advanced training in injecting the newest long lasting fillers Voluma and Bellafill. Because of her commitment she has achieved the title of National Bellafill Injector Trainer. “I am so excited about Bellafill. I can offer my clients the longest acting filler on the market today. It has the potential to last 5 years. I love what I do and am passionate about my patients’ satisfaction, so staying on the forefront and becoming not only an expert but also a trainer is paramount to me.” As a result Lisa is highly respected in the industry and has a loyal client base. She conducts seminars on new products and treatments and continually improves her practice by offering the latest treatments for enhanced skin and body rejuvenation. In addition to Bellafill Lisa is certified in Botox, Dysport, Restylane/Perlane, Restylane Silk, Juvederm, Voluma, Ulthera, Exilis Elite, Sciton Laser platform, BBL Laser Hair removal, Profractional, and Erbium resurfacing. “It is important to me that each and every client leaves here feeling better about themselves, more confident and happier.” Recognizing that surgery is the gold standard, Lisa will frequently refer patients in that direction when appropriate. “As a practitioner, we have to recognize that some patients want improvements that will not give a 100% result but prefer the 70% improvement from non-surgical procedures instead. In 2008, cosmetic surgery dropped 70% and non-surgical procedures increased 300%. Trends are not changing.” Lisa is a Member of the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgical Nurses, Inc. and received her BSN from the University of Bridgeport.
