My name is Liz Firestone; and I’ve been a nurse practitioner since 2001. I practiced in Dermatology for four years before switching to Interventional Radiology in 2011, where I was able to perform various aesthetic procedures including Botox injections, facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers, medical grade chemical peels, cosmetic sclerotherapy, and face vein treatments using the Vein Gogh laser. I’ve been performing my own aesthetic procedures since 2011 as well. Nothing makes me happier than watching a client smile after seeing their treatment results. In a way, I am simply helping the client to see their own natural beauty from a new perspective. I treat my clients the same way that I want to be treated; therefore, I take my time performing aesthetic procedures. That client is an image of my personal aesthetic skills, and I want it to be one that is awe-inspiring.

I became a nurse’s aide at the age of 16 and began working in nursing homes. After high school I completed my 3-year Nursing Diploma at Iowa Methodist School of Nursing in Des Moines, Iowa. During those college years, I worked as a CNA at Iowa Methodist Medical Center on the surgical floors, Blank Children’s Cancer Center, and occasionally in the Burn Unit. Then finished my BSN, Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Iowa at a satellite site in Spencer, Iowa. Finally, I completed my MSN, Master of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Drake University in 2001. While getting my master’s degree I was employed at Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine clinic, the progressive cardiac care unit, and briefly in the neurology unit.

After graduation, I moved to Lincoln in May 2001. I practiced in cardiology, gastroenterology, and internal medicine for six years before discovering dermatology which I really enjoyed. I worked for Dr. Rodney Basler who was a brilliant Dermatologist. He taught me how to inject anesthesia into a patient’s face ever so gently. I primarily treated patients with acne, eczema, and performed the skin laser treatments on the psoriasis and vitiligo patients. You can’t put a price tag on seeing a child’s self-esteem improve after clearing their acne; or having a happy mother hug you after improving her child’s eczema so that she and the child could finally sleep through the night without episodes of severe itching. I also had the opportunity to train with a national makeup artist through Colorescience, Michael McCarthy; and then performed makeovers on my acne patients. I don’t currently perform any permanent makeup services; but hope to in the future.

After four years of dermatology, I switched to Interventional Radiology which allowed me to expand on the aesthetic aspects that I loved. In August 2020, I began working for an Interventional Radiologist in Omaha. I loved the job; but the commute was dreadful. So, in July 2021, for the first time in my life, I quit my job without having any other prospects on the horizon. After having a few patients encouraged me to open my own practice in Lincoln; I took a huge leap of faith and opened Love Aesthetics Med Spa in January 2022 so I could continue doing what I love.

I believe good skincare starts with quality products; therefore, I sell Skin Medica skincare products and am thrilled to announce that I’m adding ZO Skinhealth line. Everyone has a different price point, and for those who would like a less expensive line, I’m happy to accommodate them as well. It’s my goal for all my clients to love their professional services and products. Being honest with a client about aesthetic services is by far the most important aspect of my job. If I feel that I can’t successfully and safely perform what a client desires, I will gladly refer that client to Kerri Otto PA-C at Citrine Med Spa. You won’t find a provider in Lincoln with more Aesthetics experience than Kerri.
