Maria Becker felt compelled to pursue a career in aesthetic nursing after being diagnosed with a rare condition that causes facial wasting and bone deterioration. While educating herself about her own disease, she uncovered the immense potential and opportunities that cosmetic injectables, like Voluma and Botox, could offer patients that extended far beyond beauty. In turn, she became a voracious student of the aesthetic industry and has quickly risen to be one of the top injectors in the Minneapolis Area.
A 1998 graduate of the Anoka-Ramsey Registered Nurse program, Maria decided to pursue aesthetic nursing full-time in 2006. Over the past decade, she has worked with some of the most prominent medical spas in Minnesota and attended a multitude of advanced trainings. As a result, Maria is proficient in a vast array of cosmetic injectables and injection techniques and was even a national-level educator for the American Academy of Facial Esthetics for several years. This role as educator allowed her to not only travel the country and train her peers, but also gain insight and learn varying techniques across the United States.
With a self-proclaimed, “conservative” injection style, Maria excels in creating refreshed, natural looking results that never appear artificial. Each treatment is precisely mapped out, explained, and executed with the greatest consideration given to your comfort and confidence. She is passionate about providing you with the best experience possible and remains highly available to her patients after their treatment has concluded.
Maria believes that her personal experience with her illness allows her to empathize with her patients with a unique degree of compassion. She is adamant about taking the time to truly listen to her patients and develop a solid understanding of their goals and needs. Maria believes education is paramount to your results and invests much of her time educating you about your skin and why she is recommending a certain treatment course or product. Through her skill, care and artistic eye, she is able to customize treatments based on each person’s unique features and outcome goals.
