Dedicated to the artistry of non-surgical facial aesthetics, I will help you restore your beauty and youthfulness. I have a passion for aesthetic medicine and believe in investing time with each patient to customize a rejuvenation plan based on each person’s unique concerns. Everyone has his or her own beauty and I want to help enhance that beauty with a noticeable but natural transformation. I strive to help each patient achieve the refreshed, rested natural look of his or her youthful self.
I have had extensive training and experience in all aspects of cosmetic dermatology and aesthetic medicine. With over 14 years of experience and expertise, I use the latest and most advanced techniques to help you achieve a natural transformation.
I am a board certified physician assistant (PA-C) specializing in cosmetic dermatology and aesthetic medicine. I began my career as a physician assistant in 2000, after graduating magna cum laude from Methodist University in North Carolina. While working in general surgery, I completed my master’s degree from the University of Nebraska in 2002. In 2004, I began my cosmetic dermatology career at Skin Spectrum in Tucson, Arizona. In 2013, I left Skin Spectrum and started Skin Appeal, which caters to those desiring to refresh and enhance their appearance through rejuvenation treatments.
I am highly trained with extensive experience and expertise in aesthetic medicine. My experience is unparalleled in the art of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation using advanced techniques with Botox®, Dysport®, Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvederm®, Voluma® and Sculptra® products. I also hold a multitude of laser, light and radio frequency device certifications for treatment of all cosmetic dermatologic conditions. I currently use the Sciton Laser for all skin rejuvenation needs. I have a vast knowledge of skin care products and peels for skin health and rejuvenation. I took this knowledge and partnered with formulation expert Michael Howard to produce an all-natural, anti-inflammatory and pharmaceutical grade skin care line, mikel kristi. I continue my education by training with some of the world’s leading experts in the field of aesthetic medicine.

In my personal life, my husband, Dave, and I married in 2004, after moving to Tucson to be near his family. We share our lives with 2 feisty Boston Terrier dogs. In my free time, I love the great outdoors, travel, food and wine. I am an avid trail runner and triathlete with a personal understanding of how detrimental the beauty of nature can be on the skin’s surface.
I would love to help you achieve a more refreshed and radiant beauty.
