So that you get to know Julie a little bit better we had her do a fun Q&A with us! Read below :)
1) What is your favorite part about being an aesthetic nurse?
I love working one on one with patients and providing them confidence and satisfaction with what they see in the mirror.
2) What is your favorite skincare service to give, and what is your favorite to receive?
My favorite service is the BBL (Broad Band Light) mixed with the Micro Laser Peel. This is the best way to improve color, texture and improve overall quality of the skin. Quick results and high patient satisfaction! My favorite skincare service to receive is obviously the Hydrafacial as I love the relaxation and the benefits of glowing, hydrated skin!
3) What is your favorite product that Transformed Med Spa carries and why?
Skinceuticals products are my go to! My favorites are Skinceuticals C-feurulic acid (vitamin c serum) and Hyaluronic acid (hydrating serum).
4) What's the biggest skincare / anti-aging mistake you find clients make?
Not wearing zinc based sunscreen. A lot of times patients are fixed on spf factors in sunscreen and don’t realize the importance of physical barrier sunscreen. I suggest patients always look for zinc based sunscreen with the highest percentage of zinc they can consistently use. I’m loving the Alastin Hydratint Pro Mineral Sunscreen.
5) What have you loved about the Transformed Med Spa environment / community so far?
Transformed Med Spa is the brightest and happiest place! I love the people, the staff and the ambiance. It’s a comfortable setting to do really great work with great people!
6) If someone is new to Med Spa services and skincare, what do you suggest they start with?
I love the instant results of a neurotoxin like Botox or Dysport. This is the fastest and easiest way to improve fine lines and brighten the eyes. Often people are nervous about injectables but then realize its really quite painless and has the best return on investment!
7) If you weren't doing this for your career, what would you be doing?
I would be a flower farmer! Haha! My favorite thing to do is to play in the garden, cut flowers, make arrangements. It’s a great combination of being outside in nature and creating beauty!
8) Who is your beauty inspiration?
I love Gwyneth Paltrow and her work on wellness and skincare products. She is a natural beauty and I love her minimalist approach to aging!
