Read Kyle’s Bio

 
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.

Medical/Aesthetic Services Provided

  • Dermal Fillers – a popular, minimally invasive procedure using HA or Bio-stimulating fillers to reduce the appearance of unwanted lines and to contour and restore volume and fullness to areas of the face. The ideal filler is determined by the unique requirements of your concerns to plump and smooth facial contours, smooth and enhance wrinkled lips, improve the appearance of imperfections and recessed scars and to restore lost volume to earlobes and hands.  Biostimulating fillers such as Radiesse & Sculptra are also used to treat laxity in the upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, thighs and knees as well as to lift the butt and treat cellulite – amazingly VERSATILE!
  • Wrinkle Relaxers – Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau are injectable prescription medicines used to smooth moderate to severe lines in the face by relaxing muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. While most commonly requested to treat frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet, they can also be used to treat other areas of the face and neck to produce a noticeable softening of lines and an all-over more youthful appearance. Neuromodulators are also used to treat Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), a common disorder affecting many people, causing physiological and emotional effects on an individual’s life.  Normal sweating is needed for thermal regulation, or temperature control.  For people suffering from hyperhidrosis, sweating exceeds the body’s need for physiological thermal regulation and is thought to be a result of over activity of the sympathetic nervous system. A simple procedure injecting a neuromodulator into the axilla has been shown to decrease sweating by up to 87% with no harm to the body’s ability to regulate heat.
  • Wellness Injections – help maintain optimal health by using B-12, B-12 with Fat Burner, or Supercharged injections! Our Supercharged contain B-12, B-6 complex (boosts immunity) and Glutathione (powerful anti-oxidant/anti-stress).
  • Hydrafacial – Addressing all skin care needs so it’s perfect for everyone, this relaxing facial treatment takes about 40 minutes to deep clean, exfoliate and hydrate your skin! Skin Boosters can be added to enhance the treatment – skin brighteners, growth factors, etc. Perk lip and eye treatments include a take home product for continued use at home.
  • Thread Lifts – PDO/Novathread and Silhouette InstaLift™ are two types of absorbable suture used to lift and increase tone/texture to treated areas through gradual collagen stimulation providing a result that gets better over time. Both types can be used in the face, neck, abdomen and legs for a lifting effect and overall increase in skin tone. Instalift is a unique dual-action treatment that produces two desirable facial outcomes: subtle, immediate lifting of the tissue in the mid-face area and a gradual regeneration of collagen to add volume and improve skin tone.  All can be used in the face, neck, abdomen and legs for a lifting effect and increase in tone.
  • Microneedling – An age management treatment to reduce fine lines, minimize pore size, tighten and rejuvenate the skin and improve the appearance of stretch marks and acne/surgical scarring, this unique fractional technology offers exceptional results rivaling laser resurfacing and chemical peels, regardless of skin type. Consider either of these add-ons: 1) PRP/PRFM (plasma/fibrin rich protein – to enjoy the Secret of the Stars, as made famous by Kim Kardashian’s post of her own procedure! Leftover PRP can be injected into the face to further enhance results. 2) Growth Factor Serum microneedled into the tissues to enhance the outcome of your treatment through the healing and regenerating properties of this unique product.  (Not for use with PRP)
  • Dermaplaning – An exfoliative treatment to whisk away the outermost layers of the skin and remove vellus hair (peach fuzz). This process is painless and very safe but is only recommended for treatment of the face (not the nose, neck or chest). Not only will you achieve smoother, brighter skin but skin care products and cosmetics will go on much more smoothly. Add a chemical peel for enhanced results!
  • Hydrafacial – Addressing all skin care needs so it’s perfect for everyone, this relaxing facial treatment takes about 40 minutes to deep clean, exfoliate and hydrate your skin! Skin Boosters can be added to enhance the treatment – skin brighteners, growth factors, etc. Perk lip and eye treatments include a take home product for continued use at home.
  • Kybella – A non surgical cosmetic solution aimed at diminishing problem areas by targeting pockets of fat.  Kybella is FDA approved to be injected into the submental (double chin) to dissolve it.   Other popular areas of treatment are the jowls and bra fat (front or back)
  • ThermiVA is a non-surgical and painless therapy that can rejuvenate the vaginal canal and external tissue in just three short sessions. Women can now address the concerns associated with vaginal childbirth and menopause! Urinary incontinence, internal/external laxity, dryness, issues with libido and painful intercourse can range from slightly annoying to being a barrier to enjoying a satisfying quality of life, particularly sexually. There are neither side effects nor recovery time needed. Most patients say they feel like a new woman after treatment, many enjoying better sexual satisfaction than ever before.

A chemical peel is a solution applied to the skin to stimulate exfoliation of dead surface cells by encouraging new, healthy skin to rise to the surface. Peels are safe for all skin types and the result of treatments can even skin tone, clear acne, soften fine lines and the appearance of aging skin and lighten discolorations. At Arizona Oculoplastic Specialists, we offer a variety of PCA SKIN® professional peel solutions, Apeele, ZO Peels that help us to target a broad range of skin concerns and conditions for our patients with minimal to no “downtime”.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is an in-office procedure that is provided by a licensed professional in about 30-45 minutes. Dermaplaning assists in exfoliating dead skin cells, removing very fine (vellus) hair and other impurities from the skin. This type of gentle exfoliation allows for more effective absorption of additional treatments, such as chemical peels, as well as the skin care products you use at home. There is no “down time” and your skin will instantly be softer, smoother and have a more clear, radiant complexion.

Photofacial

Photofacial, also sometimes referred to as IPL, is a light based procedure that enables treatment of various skin conditions. By delivering gentle pulses of light to the skin, Photofacial removes brown spots, improves the appearance of redness, and provides a more uniform skin color and texture. This minimally invasive procedure can be done in about 30-45 minutes with little to no down time.

Laser Resurfacing

At Arizona Oculoplastic Specialists, we offer more than one method of laser resurfacing; superficial, fractional and deep. These different treatment modalities allow us to target almost any skin condition and truly customize procedures based on each individual’s goals and concerns. Laser resurfacing is performed comfortably in the office and can require 1-4 days of reduced social activity, depending on the depth of your treatment.

Microneedling/Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy/Stem Cell/PRP

This is a new innovation to the aesthetic medicine for treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the improvement of skin’s texture, tone and color. The Eclipse MicroPen is used to create controlled microinjuries to the skin in order to aid in production of collagen and elastin. This promotes a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. Creating these micro channels allows for more penetration and efficacy of PRP/Stem Cells, peels, serums, topical gels, and creams which enhances the effects in the deeper layers of the skin. There is no downtime if combined with Stem cells and PRP.

Permanent Cosmetics

The 3DHD/ Microblading/Micro Brow is the fresh modern approach to eyebrow tattooing to achieve natural looking hair strokes to the eyebrow.
