Lisa Cockrell R.N.

Certified as a Registered Nurse Injector by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Lisa has been performing cosmetic injectables since 1999. She is also a National Trainer for Galderma® and travels across the country teaching doctors and nurses her injectable art form.

Lisa first became interested in nursing while working as the office manager for a group of reconstructive plastic surgeons in Dallas. She followed her heart and enrolled in El Centro College School of Nursing in Dallas in 1994, and graduated with her degree in 1998. She began her nursing career working for a cosmetic plastic surgeon, where she was trained to take over the cosmetic injectable treatments. The popularity of her treatments quickly grew to 20 patients a day, and a separate medical spa was formed to accommodate patients looking for a non-surgical approach for full face enhancement.

Lisa offers Dysport® to minimize the muscle functions of the upper face which produce wrinkles of the forehead and the sides of the eyes. She also offers Restylane® to restore volume and smooth wrinkles of the cheeks and lower face and to restore and enhance the lips. Her goal with all treatments is to provide a refreshed and more youthful look while maintaining a natural appearance.
