Melanie Zimmermann received a Bachelor of Science in Human Development from Colorado State University. After working as a Social Case Worker for five years, she began her nursing education attending Front Range Community College and soon after received her BSN at the University of Texas. While working as a Registered Nurse, Melanie gained experience working in outpatient surgery centers in perioperative areas, in the emergency room, and infusion nursing. In 2015 her long-time interest in the aesthetics field prompted her to begin attending many facial injecting courses around the country being trained and certified by many well-known providers in the aesthetic industry. Some of the courses she has attended include in-depth facial anatomy assessment in relation to injecting, critical anatomical structures, advanced cannula training, and general facial enhancement courses related to neurotoxins and dermal fillers. Upon completing graduate school and receiving her Masters in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner, Melanie continued broadening her interest in aesthetics, adding hormone replacement therapies, weight loss treatments, and other various skin care modalities to her repertoire.
As a medical aesthetic provider, her attention to detail and conservative, yet effective, approach allows her to tailor treatment plans that fit a patient’s needs and desires, yielding aesthetically pleasing outcomes. Melanie firmly believes that by truly listening to patients as an individual allows her to optimize their well-being from the inside out. Melanie strives to provide a trusting provider-patient relationship that not only involves enhancing her patient’s physical attributes but also includes treating her patients through a holistic approach to encompass a sense of health for the mind and body.
Melanie is a Fort Collins native and after living for several years in Houston, Texas, her husband and their many pets moved back home. Moving back to Colorado has allowed her to be close to family, enjoy the outdoors by hiking, camping, and going to outdoor music concerts.
