Leslie Fletcher, MSN, RN, AGNP-BC is a highly respected aesthetic nurse injector who has worked since 2001 with world-renowned, celebrity dermatologists and plastic surgeons who utilize the dermal fillers Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Perlane® in their practices. She recognized that these dermal fillers revolutionized how the signs of aging were addressed, but she also believed that a modern, powerful methodology would maximize their potential. She was determined to discover that methodology.
Although well trained in medical science, including the bone, muscle, fat, and collagen structure that compose the facial armature, Leslie looked into employing the principles of architectural engineering for the rationale to back her inspiration and theories. With extensive experience as an accomplished seamstress and designer, she regularly used her experiences with clothing construction (engineering) to exact the details she desired. These varied skills served as the foundation for her research.
Her long awaited epiphany came while she was driving along the infamous Highway 405 in Los Angeles. She suddenly realized that the strategically placed struts that supported a retaining wall along the interstate were the missing piece of the puzzle she was intent on solving. Thus began the pioneering of the ArqueDerma® Artistic Restoration Lift® technique.
Today, her innovative, patented technique is practiced by over 400 Licensed ArqueDerma Practitioners who change the lives of thousands of patients in North America and worldwide each year.
Leslie is passionate about instructing her trainers and licensees in her medical and artistic skills in the ArqueDerma trainings, held through her aesthetic training company, InjectAbility® Institute. She also imparts her concepts and knowledge with her work as a faculty injection trainer for several companies, including IntraMed®, Allergan®, Medicis®, and Scientiae®, (www.paletteworkshops.com). These venues offer her a unique window to the latest and most ground-breaking techniques in the world of injectables. This platform not only benefits her trainers and licensees, but affords their patients the most up-to-date technology and techniques available.
Leslie also lectures at various international aesthetic conferences, round tables, and has participated in product and technology focus groups for major pharmaceutical companies.
She is a member of American Society of Plastic Surgical Nurses (ASPSN), the Society of Plastic Surgical Skin Care Specialists (SPSSCS), and American Academy of Medical Esthetic Professionals (AAMEP) as well as Association of Medical Esthetic Nurses (AMEN). In 2008, she became one of only 100 practitioners in the U.S. to obtain certification in the medical aesthetic field as a Medical Esthetic Professional-Certified (MEP-C). In 2012 she became a contributing editor for the European medical journal,The Journal of Aesthetic Nursing.
These experiences combined with her astute artistic skills and ability to cultivate and energize her trainees makes Leslie a valuable industry resource for aesthetic medical practitioners worldwide.
