Julie Young, BSN, RN is a registered nurse who loves this opportunity to practice in a functional medicine environment and combine it with non-surgical cosmetics. She has found her niche with cosmetic injections - her favorite procedure is using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) with both microneedling and injections to stimulate collagen and fill in fine lines/wrinkles and lost volume in the face. "Patient reactions to their before and after photos are the best!"
Although Julie's friends and family all thought she would make a great nurse growing up, Julie thought she would be a microbiologist. Spending time with her brother in the hospital after an injury changed all that and Julie knew nursing was her calling. She graduated from Ashland University Dwight Schar College of Nursing & Health Sciences and is currently enrolled in their Doctor of Nurse Practitioner program. Julie is also a Personal Trainer and Certified Nutrition Coach.
Julie practices in our Mansfield office only. She is a master injector with Allergan and Galderma Fillers. She performs hair removal, IV therapies, dermaplane medical facials, inserts pellets and more.
