Cortney McCabe often sees customers who might initially be reluctant to put themselves first and do something nice for themselves. While injectables like Botox and Juvederm, which are used to restore a youthful glow, have gone mainstream, many people still see them as a luxury they don’t deserve.
But once they try it, a transformation takes place.
Customers realize that looking better and feeling better are interconnected – and it energizes themselves and everyone around them.
“Self-care is so important,” Cortney says. “I often hear back from my patients that ‘I’m so glad I did this; I’m so glad I took time to care for myself.’” As a mom of twins, Cortney understands the necessity of caring for yourself as much as anyone.
Cortney obtained her BSN in 2004 from Aurora University and became a Certified Nurse Injector in 2014. Her nursing experience includes over 10 years in perioperative nursing and her specialties include women’s health, aesthetics, and plastic surgery.
“I love aesthetics and restoring my customers’ natural beauty, but I’ll always be a nurse first. Helping my customers achieve total wellness – inside and out – is what fulfills me,” Cortney says. “I truly care about my patients’ health and during injectable consults will often integrate health and wellness tips that promote looking and feeling great from the inside out.”
“Cortney’s commitment to total wellness, her exceptional customer care, and her natural ability to bring out the best in her patients is what stood out when our team first met Cortney,” says Dr. Jack Dybis, founder and medical director of IVme Wellness + Performance.
Cortney is the lead nurse injector at IVme’s Champaign center where she specializes in injectables including BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM® to help minimize customers’ fine lines and wrinkles, and smooth, augment and correct lips, cheeks and areas of the lower face. Cortney prides herself in building trusting and comfortable relationships with her patients, and she dedicates herself to continuous education.
CORTNEY’S FAVORITE IVME TREATMENTS
“I LOVE the Beauty Plus IV! The hydration really shines through and leaves my skin looking radiant, says Cortney. She often recommends it to customers and friends the morning of or day before a special occasion for that red carpet-ready glow.
Cortney’s other go-to treatments at IVme are the intramuscular (IM) shots, particularly the Super B, Biotin and Glutathione shots. The Super B keeps her energized so she can keep up with her twins while the Biotin and Glutathione help her maintain her youthful wellness and glow.
