Our Injection and Laser Specialists

Roxanne, Amanda, Kortne - Injection

The Bengtson Center is extremely blessed to have, along with plastic surgeons Dr. Bengtson and Dr. Mitchell, an incredible staff of nurse and physician assistant injection specialists among the most talented in the United States. Each has a very busy practice in aesthetic medicine, specializing in BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler, as well as Ultherapy® and focused ultrasound to lift and tighten skin. Each of our injection specialists addresses our patients’ needs with a personalized, comprehensive treatment plan because they understand that a single treatment approach will not work for every patient. At the Bengtson Center, we value our relationship with you. We look forward to seeing you soon and helping you achieve all of your cosmetic and aesthetic goals.

Wayne, Indiana, where she obtained her medical degree as a Physician Assistant. Roxanne has practiced medicine as a PA for more than fourteen years. During her career, although she has worked in a variety of medical settings, her passion has always been aesthetic medicine and plastic surgery. In the more than eight years of practicing as an aesthetic PA, she has injected thousands of patients with BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers and has consistently enjoyed a very high rate of patient satisfaction.

Roxanne’s education and background, combined with her gentle touch, have made her ideally suited to be an Injection and Laser Specialist for the Bengtson Center. Recently she was honored when Allergan invited her to a Leadership Forum at their world headquarters in Irvine, California. At this select gathering of top injectors from around the United States, she had the privilege of helping to direct and form best-practice guidelines for this world-renowned company.

She is committed to teaching her patients about their aesthetic options, including associated risks and benefits, and allowing them to make informed choices to more fully participate in their own care. Roxanne has been a guest lecturer for resident doctors and currently serves as an invited trainer and speaker for Allergan Medical Facial Aesthetics. In this capacity, she has the privilege of instructing doctors, nurses and other medical professionals in successfully providing BOTOX® and injectable dermal fillers. In 2010 she established Aesthetic Excellence, LLC, to further provide aesthetic training to medical professionals:

  • "I am always competing with myself to provide the best, safest, most current and comfortable injection and laser procedures for my patients in a relaxed and professional atmosphere. Each patient is unique and has specific concerns, which I strive to address with compassion, excellence, and artistry. I believe in a natural look: ‘you, only better’ and ‘beauty at every age.’ I am SO blessed to have a career that I absolutely LOVE and can’t imagine anything more fun and rewarding than helping my patients look as good as they feel!"

Her professional affiliations include: American Academy of Physician Assistants, Michigan Academy of Physician Assistants, Society of Plastic Surgery Skin Care Specialists, American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine, and American Society of Lasers in Medicine and Surgery.
