Lauren is the Co-founder and Lead Injector at OmniaPiel. She is a National trainer + speaker for both Allergan Medical Institute (AMI) Galderma (GAIN).
After graduating from the Baccalaureate Nursing program at the University of San Francisco in 2009, Lauren was hired by the prestigious Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, CA. Lauren quickly climbed the ranks achieving the positions of charge nurse at the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, UPC chair and Magnet ambassador.
During this time, Lauren encountered her first skin issue of melasma (hormonal hyperpigmentation) and sought help from a clinical nurse skin specialist at a Beverly Hills surgeon’s office. This encounter is what opened Lauren’s eyes to the world of facial aesthetics and fueled her passion for skin after much trial and error with her own. Shortly thereafter, Lauren and her then fiancé, married and relocated to Orange County.
Eager to implement a natural approach to facial aesthetics, Lauren and her husband founded OmniaPiel Facial Aesthetics.
Education and continued training is the most important aspect of Lauren’s career and her mission amongst her team in what is provided to patients. Lauren has completed formal training with:
- Sylvia Sylvestri, RN, with focus on microneedling treatments with PRP/PRFM
- Advanced facial balancing both needle and cannula techniques with Dr. Steve Yoelin and Neekan Rivera
- Specialty training with Dr. Jeffrey Joseph and Adrienne Easterling with focus on the delicate under-eye area
- Advanced assessment, anatomy and skills in cadaver training with Dr. Jonathan Sykes, Dr. Davis Sadaat, Dr. Kian Karimi and Nicola Lowry, PA
- Advanced training in Sculptra with NP, Kelly Choi
- Advanced facial PDO thread lift utilizing Mint PDO
Lauren has been lucky to call Vanessa Lee, R.N., Founder of the The Things We Do, her mentor who has been largely instrumental in her career. Her approach to facial balancing as well as PDO thread lifting has been the foundation of Lauren’s techniques.
In 2022, Lauren was nominated and accepted as Allergan AMI Faculty National Trainer & Speaker. This has been a pivotal point in her career as well as a huge honor in being able to not only to provide education to other aesthetic providers, but to be considered one of the best injectors across the nation.
Lauren has grown OmniaPiel to a staff of 9 team members. All OmniaPiel nurses are trained by Lauren to assess the full face and use specific techniques and materials to achieve natural yet impactful results.
When Lauren is not in the clinic, managing staff, or providing training, she is spending time with her 3 children at home and her husband, Dr. Jorge Castellanos.
