Lauren Bonner, BSN-RN

Nurse Injector

Caring for others through the vocation of nursing is important to Lauren, who completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing immediately following high school. She joined the Illume team in 2018, shortly after its inception. “I was excited to move into medical aesthetics after completing several other nursing assignments over more than a decade. Working with Jen and the professionals at Illume has been an excellent path for me, as well as for my family.”

A pro at techniques like the “non-surgical facelift” and a master injector, Lauren is a big fan pre-juvenation, believing that starting treatments in your twenties and thirties will prevent you from needing more invasive interventions later. A self-professed perfectionist, she works diligently to ensure superior results by being very precise in her work and educating patients about the most effective ways to treat their concerns. Her specialties include lasers, RF microneedling, and dermal fillers—which she loves to place in the cheek area to achieve full-face rejuvenation, “As we age and the fat pads in the cheeks lose volume, it’s amazing how impactful a little filler can be in providing balance to the face. It’s very natural—your friends will notice the difference but won’t be able to figure out what you did.”

In her personal time, Lauren loves spending time with her friends and family, including her husband, two children, and their new puppy. They love the beach and enjoy driving through the redwoods to their favorite destination, Gold Beach, where they relax in the beauty of nature.
