Stephanie Canosa has a needle and she's not afraid to use it.

A registered clinical assistant and one of only two collagen-therapy specialists in Nevada, Canosa makes the men and women of Las Vegas look a little better and a little younger. Years spent working under top plastic surgeons and dermatologists proved she had a particular knack for injecting some of the city's top faces.

"I was really good at doing that," Canosa said, "so eventually they gave me my own room and I started doing business, business, business."

Canosa stepped out with her own business, A Beautiful U, in 2006. Specializing in microinvasive anti-aging treatments like Botox, Juvéderm and Radiesse, as well as laser hair removal, photofacials, laser genesis and skin peels, A Beautiful U has developed a client base that includes everyone from entertainers to the average housewife.

"Sometimes they just need something small to make them look a little better," she said.

Canosa is quick to point out that plastic surgery and even the less-invasive procedures she performs are not for everyone. But if you have any chance of looking like Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt, this is the place to start
