At Strax Rejuvenation, we pride ourselves on attracting the best, most qualified staff around for every service we provide to our patients. We are proud to maintain this commitment as we welcome Ana J. Varela, ARNP, MSN, to our team of aesthetic sciences professionals.
Ana's alma mater is the University of Miami in Miami, FL, where she took her Master's of Science in Nursing and her Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner degrees from 1991-1995. Because of the degree of advanced learning Ana has undertaken, her position in the medical hierarchy can best be explained as one step above a physician's assistant and one step below a fully certified physician. Unlike a regular registered nurse, or RN, who requires only a bachelor's degree, Ana has undertaken additional education to achieve her master's of science in nursing degree. This was the degree which first certified her as a nurse practitioner, the next level of certification above an RN.
After she achieved her master's degree, she then proceeded to rigorously study the ins and outs of the cosmetic surgery field as part of her academic coursework. Between her degree and experience, she earned the rank of Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner. ARNPs function within their field of study and experience as a primary care nurse practitioner, who while not having the medical school credentials of doctors, nevertheless have embarked on a specified area of study under careful scrutiny and examination to become masters of the field. Because ARNPs are so rare, they carry a great deal of value in their interactions with patients and other medical professionals.
This makes Ana a very welcome and highly respected member of our professional staff. Her primary role of responsibility will be assisting our clients in choosing non-invasive and minimally-invasive rejuvenation procedures, which are less expensive than surgical procedures and for many patients enjoy a similarly high success rate with minimal incidence of side effects. She will be in charge of both selecting and administering these treatments to Strax clients, which longtime clients know means your face, skin, and whole body are in the best possible hands! Her addition to the staff coincides with some amazing summer specials for our clients, and because of her higher level of training and experience with these procedures, we feel that now is an ideal time to detail some of the treatments Ana will be performing for our valued clients.
Our "Get Ready For Summer" Specials make this a great time to consider minimally or non-invasive alternatives to facelifts and similar treatments. Now you have the option of gaining more youthful-looking, firmer, more beautiful skin with fewer wrinkles and folds, at the best prices Strax Rejuvenation has ever been able to offer our clients. Injectable fillers which are usually priced at $550 are now available for a low $339 per syringe. Wrinkles and fine lines on your forehead and crow's feet at the corners of your eyes can become a thing of the past with Dysport, an in-office treatment that gets you in and back to your day in only minutes, now available for $169 per syringe.
Maybe you want to have your face completely surfaced to bring out the newer, healthy skin beneath your tired, sun-damaged cheeks and forehead? Fraxel Laser treatments which are normally priced at $750 per treatment have been slashed down to $399 during this special summer pricing! If you're tired of that tattoo you got twenty years ago, Strax Rejuvenation is now offering tattoo removal services for prices you would expect to see only on discount websites such as Group-On and Living Social. Strax rejuvenation’s outstanding and leading-edge cosmetic surgical techniques are now linked with the best in non-invasive and minimally invasive laser treatments, injectables, and fillers. Ana is also highly skilled in eliminating those pesky spider veins that many women get after child bearing years, in a quick and painless procedure. She also is trained in VI Peels and the highly popular “Vampire Facelift” which is the latest rage in Hollywood.
The advantages of these non-invasive treatments include a faster office visit, shorter recovery time, less tissue insult, and long-lasting, immediate results in many patients. This makes them an outstanding alternative to surgery which is both more efficient and affordable for clients, giving the vibrant, youthful look of facelift surgery without the price tag. Ana's experience in the cosmetic field will serve you and her well as she takes over as the head of our non-invasive cosmetic rejuvenation treatment section, and we are thrilled to be the first to welcome her to our practice as a valued colleague. Come in and visit Ana and the rest of our friendly staff at Strax Rejuvenation Plastic Surgery Center in Ft. Lauderdale today and find out how she, and we, can help you look years younger in only a few minutes!
