The Aesthetic Center staff offers the most advanced non-surgical products and procedures for your individual facial rejuvenation.
Darlene O’Farrell, Patient Liaison
As Patient Liaison, Darlene is responsible for consulting with you and answering any questions or concerns you may have. Darlene believes “information is powerful in helping us make the best decision for ourselves.”
Darlene joined the Larrabee Center in 1997 and worked as a makeup artist, helping women apply makeup after laser treatments. She was also an integral part of building our skincare division, which involved bringing on new procedures and products to the Larrabee Center.
Lauren Jackson-Gross, L.E., Director of Skincare – Licensed Aesthetician / Certified Laser Technician & Trainer
Lauren Jackson-Gross has been with the Larrabee Center for nine years and brings over eleven years of aesthetics experience to your skincare treatment. Lauren graduated from the Euro Institute of Skin Care and has advanced training from the Laser Training Institute and the Dermal Institute in California. Her advanced training and experience include extensive laser treatments, product training, and treatments for sun-damaged, maturing, and acneic skin. She stays on the cutting edge of skincare through continuing education.
Lauren possesses a passion for proper skincare and the dramatic changes it provides. She tries each and every skincare treatment offered at the Larrabee Center, as well as each product that the Larrabee Aesthetic Center may offer you. Her hands-on approach gives her the ability to describe to you the effects of each treatment and every product she recommends.
As with Dr. Larrabee and the other members of our aesthetics team, Lauren is an educator. She not only shares her knowledge and expertise by educating other aestheticians, she has a passion for educating her patients in regards to overall good skin health.
As an aesthetician, Lauren sees skin as a canvas. She looks past the pigment, acne, and other imperfections and visualizes what is really possible – clear, luminous skin. She analyzes skin texture, epidermal thickness, vascular condition, and overall skin health. Lauren believes that surgery takes care of many of the concerns with the aging face, but only proper skin care can correct the texture and condition of the skin.
Lauren’s repertoire of treatments includes: Ultherapy, Fraxel, IPL (fotofacial), chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser hair reduction. She always looks forward to meeting with you and discussing your individual skincare needs.
Lisa Machak R.N., Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist
A proud native West Seattleite, Lisa spent most of her childhood as a competitive figure skater. On the ice, she learned many lessons–one of which was that you have to love what you do. Having that passion allows you to pursue excellence with a singular focus and unwavering dedication. She has carried this lesson with her into adulthood when sitting for the inaugural national examination to obtain the distinguished certification as an aesthetic nurse specialist provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgery. She is one of only three nurses in Washington State to hold this designation.
As a nurse injector with over 16 years of experience in plastic surgery, Lisa offers her patients a personalized plan to look and feel their best. Her repertoire of products includes: Botox, Dysport, Belotero, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, Voluma, and Sculptra. Lisa was recruited for her excellent injection skills, which she combines with a warm personality, and patient-centered approach.
Outside of work she enjoys tending to her koi pond and gardening. She also loves hiking, travel, and yoga, but is most proud of her role as a grandma.
Maryln J. Wilson, R.N., B.S.N., Aesthetic Injection Specialist
Whenever Maryln Wilson was asked as a young girl, “What do you want to be when you grow up,” she responded, without hesitation, “A nurse!” Maryln is a Seattleite—born and raised in the Emerald City and a graduate of Roosevelt High School.
To begin her lifelong dream, she travelled east of the mountains to wheat and wine country and attended Walla Walla College (now University) where she received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing. Following her collegiate experience, she attended Loma Linda University to pursue graduate studies in Nursing Education and also worked in the Loma Linda University Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
With her return to the Pacific Northwest, she began her association with multiple plastic/reconstructive surgeons’ practices which provided her with a fundamental knowledge of aesthetic medicine, surgery, and patient care. In addition to her almost thirty years of clinical and surgical work, she had the opportunity in 1980 to develop her knowledge and skill as an aesthetic nurse injector.
Over the last twenty-plus years, Maryln has been involved with the evolution of injectables, including Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, Restylane, Perlane, Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Sculptra.
Maryln has been a part of the Larrabee Aesthetic Team since October 2010.
