My driver – my passion – is to exceed your expectations. With me you get so much more than a simple cosmetic treatment. After one consult you will know how to become the best you. My years of medical training offer a higher level of care that is quite frankly hard to match. Couple that with my passion for treating you as a whole person – a person with a mind, body and spirit – and you begin to see the difference in how you will look and feel by trusting me with your entirety.
I care about my clients’ safety first – they will see NATURAL results because they have not been sold unnecessary or careless treatments.
Meet the Team
Laura Johnson, MSN, FNP
Laura Johnson, MSN, FNP, is the owner of About Face Med Spa which serves clients throughout New Mexico, Nevada, California and Hawaii. Her services extend beyond Botox and dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane by offering the latest scientifically proven procedures. Laura is only one of two practitioners in New Mexico to advance the new revolutionary vaginal tightening procedure that is changing women’s lives.
Investing in the best choices for you, drives Laura to continue to bring innovative, aesthetic procedures to her clients such as PDO threads, PRP for hair restoration and the latest – vaginal tightening. She relishes in providing a painless experience and her clients repeatedly brag about her gentle touch.
Her vast knowledge of Aesthetic Medicine began when she received her Bachelors of Science Degree in Nursing from renowned, Dillard University. She went on to graduate as a Family Nurse Practitioner with a Master’s of Science Degree in Nursing from Saint Louis University. She furthered her training in Aesthetic Medical Services and continues to receive extensive training by experts in the field. Laura has been bringing state of the science procedures to her clients for over 20 years.
She tailors procedures to her clients’ needs. You shouldn’t be surprised if Laura, MSN, NP, counsels and guides to limit or delay procedures. “I care about my clients safety first – they will see NATURAL results but not because they have been sold unnecessary or careless treatments.”
Beyond Aesthetic Medicine, she had over 15 years of experience as a traveling medical provider, family practice medicine and emergency medicine.
Coline Peredo, Pharm.D.
Coline received her Bachelors of Science from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy almost 20 years ago and immediately went to serve as a volunteer in the Peace Corps in Bolivia. One of the many benefits she received from that experience is that she is still fluent in Spanish. Upon returning to the United States she relocated from her hometown of Washington DC to Albuquerque. She has been here for over14 years and she honestly believes that this city is amazing. “I feel very grounded here and I consider this my adopted home.”
Coline spent more than a decade working at the Presbyterian Hospital in downtown Albuquerque in the Emergency Room. She received her doctorate of Pharmacy from the University of New Mexico. While she was working in the ER she began to expand her philosophy of medicine beyond traditional western medicine. “I started to realize that true health wasn’t just rooted in western medicine I am passionate about the physical, mental, emotional, energetic, picture of YOU as a whole. That’s what drew me to becoming a yoga teacher in addition to a Vivive treatment specialist.”
Becoming a vaginal tightening specialist (Vivive treatment specialist) for me is a higher calling. To give a woman her body back is meaningful. She light-heartedly says she puts the “O” back in ORGASM. She personally has received the Vivive treatment and says we, as women forget the power and glow of our intimacy, our sexuality, and quite frankly our goosebumps!
Far beyond that Coline volunteers for an organization called “Free People”. It focuses on the sex trafficking of children. As if that wasn’t enough, she continues her volunteerism with another organization – Sanaram – for transitional homeless women. Coline is a rape survivor and she says “When you correct one aspect of your life, that being a torn, ripped V, it can be a game changer”. IT CAN BE AMAZING!!!” I really think that you can get your life back through this type of treatment” referring to Vivive.
