Meet Margaret Larson
A master’s prepared nurse practitioner, Margaret L. Larson, ARNP, MSN, FNP-C is board certified in Family Practice. She is certified in cosmeceutical procedures such as general and CO2 laser skin and feminine rejuvenation, radio frequency skin tightening, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections, neurotoxin, dermal filler and chemical peel treatments. Margaret also is a certified health care provider of Metagenics FirstLine Therapy Program, a medical-guided weight loss and disease management program.
Since 2014 Margaret has received the prestigious Bella Diamond Elite Award from Suneva Medical for being the Top National Injector of Bellafill, the longest-lasting filler. Her revolutionary technique and approach to long-term results from non-surgical facial rejuvenation has put her at the top of the aesthetics industry.
What is the philosophy and mission of Larson Family Medicine?
It is important to Margaret and her highly trained staff to provide patient-centered, quality medical aesthetic services, using technology from the global leaders, and medical grade skin care products.
Why did the practice choose to invest in Alma Laser equipment?
As a global leader in laser technology Alma Lasers provides great technology and marketing and technical support to meet the broad needs of a medispa. The HarmonyXL Pro is a multi-modular workhorse for noninvasive treatment of a large variety of skin challenges. The Soprano Ice is a diode laser for permanent hair reduction that recharges itself so there are no consumables, and it is comfortable. The FemiLift CO2 laser can be used for vaginal and facial rejuvenation. The Accent Prime is the perfected radio frequency and ultrasound technology to provide comfortable, effective body sculpting treatments.
Do you feel new skin care technology will surpass plastic surgery?
It already has. There has been a drastic drop in facelifts since the introduction of Botox Cosmetic and dermal fillers. The lasers are more popular as they have become less invasive and more precise, comfortable and safe.
What’s the ideal age to take advantage of non-invasive skin care treatments?
25 to 65 years old for facial, nail and feminine rejuvenation and permanent hair reduction. The skin, hair and hormones are calmer than a teenager’s.
