Elissa Palmquist
RN (BSN)

Cosmetic Injector

Meet Elissa! Elissa is our Boulder Aesthetic Injector who performs all things injectables.

Originally from Denver, Elissa made her way back home to CO after attending nursing school in Arizona. Her career started out in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, where she developed her amazing attention to detail and kind bedside manner over a 10 year period. 

Although Elissa loved the NICU, she had always been intrigued by the industry of cosmetic nursing. After taking a Cosmetic Boot Camp course, she traded in her baby bottles for Botox and hasn’t looked back since!

Since starting at TLR, she has received intensive 1:1 injectable trainings with Danielle, honing in on all the little injectable details that make TLR injectors unique, and the amazing results they can deliver.

Elissa’s favorite treatment? She loves doing chin and lip filler together, “It gives everyone instant, gorgeous results”. You’ll never catch her without her favorite product either, which is SkinBetter’s Trio moisturizer – a perfect cure for the Colorado dryness!

When Elissa isn’t in the clinic, you can find her adventuring around with her 2 littles. They love hiking, snowboarding, and trying out the city’s best smoothie bowls. Elissa is also an avid runner, having completed several half marathons – talk about dedication!

Elissa is very excited that construction has finally begun on her new home, which is just 15 minutes away from the Boulder clinic! 

Tiffany Lynn Nack

Licensed Medical Aesthetician / Licensed Laser Technician

Originally from New Jersey, Tiffany moved to Colorado 30 years ago to incorporate into her life her favorite pastimes include: skiing, hiking and absorbing all that nature has to offer. When she’s not taking in all of Colorado’s beauty, you can find her in the yoga studio or spending quality time with her friends and family. Tiffany is a mother to two girls as well as 3 fur babies. She is an avid adventure traveler and has traveled to some of the world’s most desired destinations. To mention a few: Peru, Bali, India, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, the list continues!

Other than Tiffany’s vast affinity for traveling and the outdoors, her love for esthetics have proven to be a driving force in her life for over 12 years. Her career in the industry began when she attended a holistic esthetics school in Boulder where she specialized in a holistic approach to skin care health. The last 9 years she has worked in the medical field at a dermatology office as a medical esthetician. There, she treated patients with both esthetic and laser procedures as well as coordinating and assisting in medical and cosmetic surgeries. Her experience speaks for itself as she was in charge of operating the office’s entire cosmetic division. Her favorite aspect of aesthetics? “I love to help people look and feel their best through developing a comprehensive skin care plan, using the most effective skin care products, coupled with treatments to create optimal skin health!” While she loves all the treatments that she performs, her favorite is RF microneedling, as it, “stimulates the growth of new healthy skin, creating a controlled skin injury to help build collagen and radiofrequency waves to help with skin tightening providing the best results for overall skin rejuvenation.” If she could choose just one skin care product that she absolutely could not live without, it would be SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. She particularly loves this product because it is a powerful daily-use antioxidant serum that helps protect and improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and skin brightness!

Nani Yim

Boulder Clinic Manager

Say “Aloha” to Boulder’s Clinic Manager, Nani Yim. Born in Hawaii, Nani moved to Atlanta where she was raised before making the move to Colorado! In 2020 Nani set the cruise control and traveled west to Denver, where she resides with her boyfriend Clint.  Her favorite thing about Colorado is the abundance of sunshine. 

When Nani is out of the Boulder clinic, you can catch her on a patio enjoying a delicious marg! She loves finding food events around the city and sweating it off the next day with some hot yoga. Nani is unique in many ways- one of many is her full first name is…drumroll for this one…Leinaniokaopua! I mean how cool is that?!

Her favorite hobby is cross-stitching, catch her on her lunch break with needle in hand (different type than our practitioners are used to)! Fun fact! Nani’s boyfriend is responsible for the beautiful art that is displayed on her body. So, next time you see Nani make sure to take a gander at her incredible tattoos. 

Before joining TLR, Nani worked at another cosmetic clinic located in Denver. There she managed two locations. Since then, Nani has her heart set on aesthetics. What’s her favorite aspect? “I love how rapidly the industry is progressing! There are innovations being made every single day, and it’s so exciting to see!”

If she had to choose one treatment that she could never live without, it would be SkinPen Microneedling with topical PRP. Favorite skincare product? That’s easy- ZO SkinHealth Exfoliating Polish, she refers to it as “pure gold in a jar!”

Before starting with the TLR team, she was a patient of Nurse Danielle’s where she already had a fond appreciation for all things aesthetics. Her favorite part of TLR is firstly our patients and secondly the amazing people that make The Luxe Room team.

If there was one treatment that she couldn’t live without, it would be chin filler. What is her favorite skin care product? Anything Skinbetter, but if she had to choose just one, SkinBetter Trio.
