We’re pleased to announce the newest addition to our team at The Spa @ Western Dermatology Consultants: Nurse Injector Specialist Candace Griego, RN. Candace had been a client of Western Dermatology Consultants for many years before becoming a part of our team earlier this month. She realized at a young age that nursing would be an ideal career path for her as she enjoys caring for other people—and due to her interest in aesthetics, becoming a nurse injector was an ideal fit. When it comes to providing injectables, she always prioritizes listening to each patient’s needs, helping them to feel comfortable and confident, and helping them to look and feel like the best version of themselves. If you’re interested in having cosmetic treatments, we can advise you on hyaluronic acid filler benefits for our Albuquerque, NM-area patients, or discuss the pros and cons of other wrinkle treatments like BOTOX®.

BOTOX® and facial fillers are minimally invasive injectable procedures that delay the effects of aging. They both target facial wrinkles and can also enhance facial symmetry, but they work in different ways. BOTOX® is a diluted, purified version of a protein called botulinum toxin that temporarily prevents muscles from being able to contract and cause facial wrinkles. It’s excellent for crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and other expression wrinkles caused by habitual facial expressions. Facial fillers are gel-like substances that are added beneath the skin to produce volume and lift as a way of minimizing wrinkles associated with the loss of collagen. 

While both of these injectables can enhance a person’s beauty, finding the right injector is critical if you want to put your best face forward. Choosing a reliable, knowledgeable, and experienced cosmetic injector—such as Candace—who has the proper training is highly important for facial fillers, neuromodulators like BOTOX®, and other types of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments. Candace makes helping patients achieve their cosmetic goals her primary focus. She can help patients get the stunning results they desire that look subtle and natural rather than overdone.
