Fresh Medical Aesthetics is led by our expert nurse injector Allison Jenkins RN, BSN, under the medical direction of Harvard trained and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Joseph A. Russo of Newton MA. Allison graduated Summa Cum Laude from UMass with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and also has a bachelor’s degree in nursing from UMass Boston for which she graduated Magna Cum Laude. Allison has an extensive background in the pharmaceutical industry prior to her nursing career, as well as the field of nursing in both the acute care hospital setting, as well as her true love, the field of medical aesthetics. Upon graduating from nursing school, Allison worked as a medical/surgical staff nurse at Cape Cod Hospital. Over the past 6 years, she has remained working on a per diem schedule at Cape Cod Hospital as a float nurse. Working per diem has allowed Allison the opportunity to nurture acutely ill patients at the bedside while using her IV skills to pursue her love for medical aesthetics and injectables such as Botox, fillers and PRP.
Allison continues to train and learn the most up-to-date techniques and trends through her mentor Dr. Joseph A. Russo at the Aesthetic Institute of Massachusetts. Allison also works as an associate clinical instructor for the Aesthetic Institute of Massachusetts, working with RNs, NPs, PAs, MDs, and DDS during their hands-on clinical portion of training for the Introduction to Neurotoxin certification courses as well as the Introduction to Dermal Fillers certification courses. Allison is also a member of Medical Aesthetic Associates.
Allison’s thriving medical aesthetic practice and loyal customer base quickly became too much to manage to rent a room for treatment space at a local salon, leading Allison to fulfill her dream of opening her own med spa, Fresh Medical Aesthetics.
