About Maria Duran-Shy FNP-BC, ACNP-BC

Maria has been a registered nurse since 1991 and a nurse practitioner since 2009. She currently works in a family practice clinic in Westcliffe Colorado.  She became interested in laser procedures about 14 years ago after having experienced laser hair removal with excellent results.  It has taken some time to realize the goal of having her own laser and being able to be in a position to help women (and men) feel better, look better about themselves and have better skin.

Maria trained with Ashley James who is the fourth nationally recognized laser specialist in the USA with over 20 years of experience in the cosmetic laser business. Ashley is a partner with Dermasthetic Consulting, a company specializing in training professionals in the esthetics field. Ashley is also a trainer for National MedSpa Training Institute and is a trainer for Cutera ®. Maria trained in Light and Laser modalities and procedures with National MedSpa Training Institute. Maria is certified in all light and laser modalities and for all different laser wavelengths.

Maria will be using a top of the line Cutera® XEO which is a multiplatform device and will be able to perform the procedures below.
