Our highly skilled Injection Specialists, Jacki Solon RN, CANS, BSN and Emily Mersman MMS, PA-C are extremely passionate about facial rejuvenation. They understand each person has unique needs and expectations and are committed to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Clinical nurse injector/laser specialist, Jacki Solon, BSN, RN, brings over twenty years of nursing experience to Centre for Plastic Surgery. After graduating from Grand Valley State University where she distinguished herself with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Jacki practiced in a wide variety of clinical settings including research and Plastic Surgery.
Her plastic surgery background and nursing experience –combined with her great aesthetic sense and soft touch- make her ideally suited as an advanced injector. Trained by leaders in the aesthetic field as a CANS certified (Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist), and through her experience with so many patients through out the years, she recognizes the importance of achieving natural, youthful results while minimizing discomfort.
Jacki is passionate about aesthetic medicine and continues her education with seminars and conferences on the latest advancements in order to create the best possible results for her patients. She believes ongoing education allows her to give the most up to date therapies for her patients. She has traveled extensively in order to "learn from the best" and develop her own unique, highly effective injection techniques.
As a nurturer and perfectionist by nature, Jacki works very hard to help all of her patients achieve their aesthetic goals. She holds advanced certifications in injectables such as Botox, Juvederm, Sculptra and Voluma. Additionally, she is a Clinical trainer for Galderma and a qualified laser specialist and providing skin tightening and facial resurfacing treatments with the InMode Fractora and Forma.
Jacki has an active injectable practice and her faithful following of patients is proof of her commitment to excellence. While she has practiced in a variety of clinical settings over the years, she has found Facial Aesthetics to be her "niche" and finds it both challenging and rewarding.
"Building a relationship of trust with each of my patients is very important to me and I love helping them feel not only more beautiful, but confident as well."
