Position: Founder, FNP, MSN
Hula is a Board-Certified Nurse Practitioner, an Aesthetic Specialist, and a dreamer.
Coming to America on her own in 2003 from Belarus as a 21-year-old girl, she decided to build her American Dream and become an inspiration for young girls.
Hula graduated top 10% with a BSN from the University of Michigan and received her Master’s in Nursing from Florida International University. She has a diverse clinical background, but her passion lies in Aesthetics.
Hula works with the best-recognized Beverly Hills physicians and treats celebrity clientele bringing extensive experience and a trained aesthetic eye.
She strongly believes in a synergistic approach to aesthetics rather than focusing on one isolated area. Her favorite technique is to perform full facial rejuvenation by incorporating various treatment modalities such as dermal fillers, neurotoxins, PDO threads, Sculptra, and PRP for tasteful undetectable outcomes keeping your unique facial features in mind.
What Hula loves most about aesthetic medicine is the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives, regardless of their background. Her philosophy is everyone deserves to look and feel their best. With the patients’ best interest in mind, Hula believes good communication and trust between the patient and the provider leads to the best outcomes. “We are in this together, this is a relationship, not a one-night stand, and I do care about you in the long term,”- she adds.
Hula is very passionate about education and research. She served as a sub-investigator for Galderma studies, is a Faculty Assistant with an Allergan Medical Institute, and is widely recognized as an expert injector and PDO threads specialist/educator in North America. Hula is a highly sought-after National trainer for PDOMAX, the leading threads company in the United States. Featured in The Aesthetic Guide magazine, Sunday Edit magazine, and on Daily Mail TV for her PDO threads work, she adds, “Threads is what I love to do most.”
Being a resource/mentor for many local aesthetic specialists in the Los Angeles area gave a kickstart to her Uplifted dream- to create a safe space for women, regardless of their background, to feel good, look good and inspire each other to dare to dream with hard work and good intentions in mind.
Uplifted offers personalized aesthetic treatments, concierge services for busy ladies and gentlemen in the comfort of their homes, and Aesthetic training courses for licensed medical providers uniquely put together by Hula, our founder herself.
