Center for Facial Rejuvenation
Enhancing Her Clients' Appearance
Kathleen York wears a lot of hats in her role at Center for Facial Rejuvenation. In addition to being the clinical supervisor of a talented team of providers, she’s performing daily consultations to help clients decide what cosmetic service best fits their desires and lifestyle – a time she also uses to emphasize small steps to take at home, such as using sunscreen everyday. “I want my clients to look the best they can for their age; my goal is that you never look unusual or distorted,” she says. “I am passionate about fighting age gracefully and embracing the fact that we are older, wiser, and even more valuable!” York enjoys developing great relationships with clients, and she’ll use her expertise to maximize her clients’ goals of healthy, beautiful skin.

Board-Certified Nurse Practitioner
1. What does your day-to-day look like as an aesthetics nurse?
I see 10-20 patients a day for Botox/Dysport and dermal fillers, and I am responsible for making sure that every new client in our practice is an appropriate candidate for their desired procedure based on their health history.
2. What do you love most about your profession?
I love my two-week follow-ups with clients. This is where we look at their before and after pictures, and I find it very fulfilling to see their happiness. I appreciate those moments where I can see they now stand a little taller with some newfound confidence.
3. What influenced you to pursue your career?
I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a nurse like my mom. I actually thought I’d be a midwife one day, but life’s twists and turns have guided me here, and I have found tremendous joy in this specialty.
4. What would you consider to be your main strengths?
Aesthetics nursing is a highly specialized art form – it’s a specialty that uniquely connects art and science. I love to read research, and every day I am excited about what I can learn and how I can get better at what I do.
5. Do you believe in miracles?
Yes, but don’t wait for one! I believe patience, hard work, and a little faith can go a long way toward bringing about change that defies understanding.
