R.N., BSN, MEDICAL AESTHETIC SPECIALIST, NURSE INJECTOR
After working as a registered nurse in many different surgical specialties, I ultimately found my passion in cosmetic surgery in 2016 when I began working with Dr. Shapiro at our very own Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center. It was so rewarding working alongside Dr. Shapiro in the operating room which allowed me to see first-hand his meticulous technical precision and surgical expertise. The operating room also gave me a strong anatomical and functional background that I now apply to treating my injectables patients and maintaining a global understanding of aesthetic treatments in the face and body.
In 2017 I became Dr. Shapiro’s in office surgical nurse. It was a pleasure to enjoy creating lasting relationships with our patients, following their care throughout the surgical process and seeing Dr. Shapiro’s surgical visions come to life. Sharing the excitement of the final result with our patients and Dr. Shapiro was the best part of my day for many years! During that time I was also specially trained in all aspects of patient care; such as, infection control, post-op wound care, suture removal, drain removal, surgical implants and surgical garments.
In 2021 I began injecting full time and was proud to be certified by the International Society of Plastic Surgical and Aesthetic Nurses as a Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist (CANS). Achieving my CANS certification was a proud accomplishment and I continue to further my education by attending national conferences and staying active in the injecting community to bring our patients the best results and newest techniques!
"I recently had lip fillers and Botox done by Sage and I am so happy with my results! She walked me through the entire process and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I was most impressed with how painless the lip filler was. She took the extra time to numb my lips longer and ice them in between. She is very caring and wants the best results for you. She is a talented artist and I will absolutely return to her for any future aesthetic needs. She's the best!” - Talisha S.
"I can't recommend Sage enough! I walked into the office and had a great experience from the beginning - even just doing paperwork. Everyone is so nice and welcoming. Once I got back to the office with Sage, she explained everything clearly for me. She took the time to ask what I was expecting and hoping for from my appointment and walked me through all the steps. Throughout the appointment she told me exactly what she was doing and why and how it correlated to what I wanted...” - Becky S.
"I went to Shapiro Plastic Surgery for multiple noninvasive procedures. I have had: botox in my forehead and in my bottom jaw (to help with contouring my cheeks), fillers in my cheeks, and 1 round of cool sculpting all with Sage Hallman (besides 1 round of Botox with Anne). Sage is such a sweetheart, she takes great care of her clients and I truly feel she listens to what her clients want and tries her best to achieve those results...” - Lexi B.
"This review is for Sage Hallman, who is the nicest, most comforting injector ever! I love her consultative and conservative approach and how patient she was with me. She was so in tune with what I wanted and was sensitive to my pain levels and comfort. She walked me through every step of her process and checked in before, during and after. I was so impressed with her work and can't wait to go back to her for more! If you are considering filler or injections, you will be glad you chose Sage as your provider.” - Amy B.
