Anita Wolf RN is one of the Top 100 Injectors in America, a Top 1% Galderma National Trainer & Injector, & the owner of Face It Med Spa. She is one of the top 30 trainers in the country for Galderma. Anita has been an aesthetic medicine practitioner since 2004. During this time, she has performed thousands of skincare treatments, including advanced laser techniques and all forms of injection treatments. She is currently certified in over 22 aesthetic procedures. Anita is a sought-after instructor, having taught these procedures to Dermatologists, Plastic Surgeons, Physicians, Physician Assistants and Advanced Practitioners, and Registered Nurses across the United States. Helping women and men address skin problems and challenges — aiding them to feel more confident day after day — and providing a softer, more natural appearance is what Anita does best. “Making someone look unnatural is not my thing. I have and will turn clients away (who want more and more) telling them it is not my preferred style. Honesty is always the best policy! That’s my motto!”

As a Registered Nurse with over 20 years experience & a five-year background in Oncology, Anita deeply cares about Breast Cancer Awareness.
