About Nurse Rose
Rose Streeter, a registered nurse, founder and practitioner of Aesthetic Creations, Inc. is advancing her cosmetic medical career to the next level. She has relocated her practice to a new location: 1800 Emerson Street, Suite 200 in Denver, adjacent to the office of renowned plastic surgeon, Jerry Popham, MD, FACS.
For the past decade, Rose has specialized in enhancing faces by means of injections, aka “liquid face lifts”. She generously offers a free consultation for every injection service. Her skill-set has expanded to include hand injections. She handles each client assessment with diplomacy and candor. During an initial assessment, potential clients will likely recognize that Rose encompasses a desirable combination of aesthetic artistry and scientific knowledge. Not surprisingly, Rose just so happens to be one of the more attractive individuals in the greater Denver area. Her website photo (displayed here, to the upper left) is untouched and without photoshop modification.
In addition to working in Denver, Rose will also continue working on-site at the Avanti Advanced Skin Center of Boulder, an establishment that specializes in several aesthetic skin services. Alhough cosmetic surgeons may administer cosmetic injections themselves, they are often consumed with more invasive procedures. Dr. Steven Schlosser, owner, medical director, and chief surgeon of Boulder’s Avanti, is fortunate to have someone as qualified as Rose handling most of Boulder Avanti’s cosmetic injection services. Although Rose’s business is independent of both Popham and Schlosser’s, these plastic surgeons maintain a mutually beneficial rapport with Rose. Virtually all of Schlosser’s patients who desire cosmetic injections are referred to Nurse Rose alone.
About Cosmetic Fillers
In essence, cosmetic injections aim to smooth wrinkles, enlarge lips, and restore volume to sunken areas. Each treatment requires the most appropriate liquid solution in addition to precise delivery, not to mention keen visual perception. Rose has essentially mastered each FDA-approved liquid injectible. The majority of these fillers are comprised of pliable hyaluronic acid, which naturally exists as a moisture factor within the skin. As we age, this substance diminishes and the skin loses some of its supple structure. Adipose (fat) tissue transfers are sometimes used as injectible material, although a general anesthetic is often required during fat harvesting. This type of procedure requires multiple steps and can get quite expensive. Other fillers include collagen, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, and Radiesse. Radiesse, a calcium-based filler, tends to be the most costly when compared to other brand-name fillers. First used on AIDS patients, Radiesse fills large areas of the face, particularly sunken cheeks. This calcium-based filler requires a highly skilled injector because it’s less pliable and can last longer than other brand-name solutions. Some solutions are thinner and therefore more “forgiving”.
Juvederm XC and Restylane XC brand fillers are formulated with the local anesthetic, lidocaine. XC, which stands for eXtra Comfort, minimizes pain during such procedures, Without the lidocaine infusion, discomfort can be too intense for some clients, Certain procedures – lip injections in particular – were nearly intolerable to endure before the introduction of lidocaine,
Liquid face lifts last from one to eighteen months, depending on the client’s metabolism. The filler solution is gradually absorbed by the body and the visual benefit is lost. The cost for this relatively quick procedure is about one tenth of what a surgical face lift costs, although surgery lasts about ten times longer than reversing the years via syringe.
To a small degree, the skin’s underlying collagen and elastin matrix is stimulated by needle insertions. Almost anytime that the skin is injured, the healing process reinforces the dermal “mattress”. Because of this phenomenon, slightly less filler may be required the next time for similar fullness in the treated area.
Cosmetic Botulinum Toxin (Botox), in its purified state, is commonly used to smooth out unwanted forehead lines, including horizontal and glabella lines – the latter, also known as “11s”, between the brows. Botox is also used to treat “crow’s feet” lines around the eyes. Dysport, the Botox alternative, is also injected by Rose. Alhough the desired effect is the same as with Botox, Dysport requires a different dosage. According to Rose, some clients respond better to one injectable than the other. Botox remains the industry standard. Interestingly, Botox is also used to stop spasms of the larynx in order to resolve certain vocal disabilities. it is also used to (temporarily) shut down over-active sweat glands. Moreover, purified botulinum toxin injections have been utilized to straighten crossed eyes, or focus wayward eyes – conditions known as Strabismus. More and more uses for Botox are being discovered. Perhaps Dysport will prove to be as useful as Botox.
As with filler injections, both Botox and Dysport are rarely one-shot deals (no pun intended). Purified toxin generally needs to be “rebooted” every three and a half months. In other words, injection sessions must be repeated. As the toxin wears off, the muscles start to contract as before. The upshot (pun intended) is that people tend to need less and less toxin with each treatment. This could be due to muscle atrophy from under-use. Perhaps the contraction of the muscle group in question is halted long enough that the habit becomes obsolete.
The most common post-procedure effect of cosmetic Botox is headache, though not a migraine nor even a splitting tension headache. With a proficient practitioner such as Rose, drooping eyelids, frozen foreheads, and other poor outcomes are avoided. Rose leans towards conservatism when it comes to injectibles, so as to avoid an unnatural look – for example, “ducky” lips. Arnica Montana herbal tablets may be recommended in order to dissipate any subsequent bruising, which can happen after injection treatments. A client is susceptible to bruising if they have ingested vasodilators, such as fish oil supplements or ibuprofin four or fewer days prior to the procedure.
