Meet Our Staff
Kyle Graber, RN, LE, CLT
Registered Nurse, Licensed Esthetician, Certified Laser Technician
Kyle is a registered nurse who has brought exceptional experience to the aesthetics industry since 1999 and a wealth of knowledge to AZ Oculoplastic Specialists.
After numerous years in hospital nursing (ICU, ER, Ortho, Rehab), Kyle added an aesthetic license to her nursing credentials in 1998. She followed that with certifications in Neuromodulators (wrinkle relaxers), Dermal Fillers, Sclerotherapy, Mesotherapy, Ulthera and Laser Hair Removal/Skin Rejuvenation before earning certification in Medical Aesthetics in 2006. Since then she has added certifications in Silhouette Instalift, PDO threads, ThermiVA, Microneedling, and Hydrafacial procedures.
Kyle has been training other physicians and nurse injectors nationally in the science and artistry of fillers and neurotoxins – with Esthetic Skin Institute, Merz North America, Galderma, Allergan and Suneva since 2005. Considered an advanced or “master” injector, she is one of a handful chosen to the national team of clinical educators for Silhouette Instalift and remains in high demand as an independent trainer due to her skill as both an educator and injector.
Kyle’s expertise is based upon her knowledge of anatomy, her creative and artistic eye, a gentle touch, and passion for natural enhancement. She takes time to collaborate closely with her patients to provide the best possible aesthetic outcomes so that they look younger and refreshed. That honesty, passion and commitment to providing safe and effective treatments has enabled her to establish and value many long-term relationships with both the patients who’ve entrusted her with their care and those to whom she’s provided education to over the years. To remain current on new technology and techniques to benefit her patients, Kyle attends several conferences and training opportunities every year as she feels there is always something to learn.
Kyle works closely with Dr. Ghafouri and shares his commitment to providing our patients with excellent care and beautiful outcomes. It is important to her that each patient is fully educated on available treatment options and together determine a plan for their desired outcome.
