Welcome!

I believe in creating a natural look with Medical Aesthetics, and empowering patients to feel beautiful from within.

Facial expression is how we connect with others, and some functional movement is important to retain.  On the other hand, many patients prefer to eliminate movement between the eyebrows that results in frown lines.  This balance between movement and stillness is my aim with Botox and Dysport.

With dermal fillers, I aim for a natural look, with improved volume and symmetry, for a more refreshed, youthful appearance.  I truly enjoy the artistry of medical aesthetics, to which I bring my individual care, attention to detail, and many years in a procedure-rich medical specialty as an Ophthalmologist (eye MD).  I enjoy connecting with my patients, and supporting Beauty from within.
