Which attribute is most important in caring for patients?
“Caring—both as in the ‘care’ given as well as truly personally ‘caring’ for the well-being of another. Creating and maintaining facial beauty is facilitated by my experience, skill, knowledge, judgement, faith and most importantly my natural artistic vision.”
How does your practice provide personalized attention to patients?
“Every face is unique and requires customized attention. At the initial consult we listen, evaluate and then recommend the best personalized natural beauty plan, quote the cost and treat our patient.”
How would your patients describe your approach?
“I combine the science of facial aesthetics with an emphasis on the art of creating and maintaining natural beauty.”
What services do you offer that are unique?
“Emsculpt: an electromagnetic muscle-building, fat-reducing device—the latest ‘paddles’ for arms, legs, abs and glutes. Four 30-minute sessions over two weeks results in 16% muscle increase and 19% fat reduction. Our ‘WOW’ treatment combines the noninvasive lifting and tightening power of Ultherapy with Sculptra Aesthetic and Physician Micro-Needling with PRP (platelet rich plasma), resulting in a naturally refreshed, rested and healthy appearance.”
Is there a common concern that you hear frequently?
“Like Nora Ephron’s book title, I Feel Bad About My Neck!”
How do you stay on top of current research and treatments?
“Specialty journals, as well as attending Vegas Cosmetic Surgery multispecialty conference every June and Global Aesthetics Conference every October, where I lecture, moderate, share experiences with colleagues, and stay abreast of the latest innovations in aesthetic surgery and medicine.”
How do you maintain your own health and wellness?
“Golf, stationary cycling, yoga and walking the dogs.”
