Dr. Smith offers a unique new approach to aesthetic medical practice. She has a talent for portraiture and figure drawing in various media including sculpting which she feels gives her an innate ability to excel in her evaluation and treatment of aging deficits in the face and body. While many aesthetic physicians delegate most of their non-surgical procedures to medical assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, she believes a more personal approach with her clients is necessary for an overall more pleasurable experience during aesthetic procedures. As a client herself she noticed an unfilled niche for those seeking more of a boutique experience characterized by comprehensive private consultation and treatment plans with a gentle, calming approach to proven facial and body rejuvenation therapies with minimal discomfort and downtime. She wanted to focus on only one client at a time in her secluded modern office without interruptions thus giving the client her full attention and expertise. While some offices seem to be rushing from client to client without adequate time for proper interaction with the client, Dr. Smith takes the time to fully explain her individual plan for each client in order to satisfy their unique aesthetic needs and budget.
Dr. Smith collaborates with 2 certified aestheticians with over 27 years experience combined that offer the full range of aesthetic services and several high quality professional skin care lines. We also utilize Intense Pulsed Light (photofacial), Radiofrequency skin tightening, and Ultherapy Ultrasound technology based treatments. This allows us to complement the aesthetic skin care plans we tailor for each of our clients in order to more fully take care of their individual needs and problem areas.
Dr. Smith only offers the best quality pharmaceutical grade skin care products such as DermAware®, Lifeline® and Regenica® certified by the manufacturer and delivered direct for proper quality control. As the medical director of FACEbyMD and SkinbyMD, she provides the medical expertise and oversight for medical grade skin peel products, microneedling, microdermabrasion, and facials performed by the aesthetician in addition to the medical services she offers. Her approach is multifaceted and tailored to turn back time with the use of Xeomin® and Botox®, Kybella® double-chin treatment, dermal fillers such as Bellafill® and Juvéderm Voluma®, photofacial intense pulsed light, radiofrequency facial and body tightening, and ultrasound based lifting and skin tightening procedures of the face, neck, and certain body sites. Dr. Smith also offers ReGenesis®, RevitaLash® and RevitaBrow® hair, eyelash and eyebrow enhancement.
For those who are averse to surgery due to risks, downtime, or cost, she provides safe, effective, non-surgical and non-invasive procedures to make you a more natural youthful natural version of yourself while accentuating your attributes and minimizing your flaws. Incremental adjustments over time is her answer to clients anxious about drastic or unnatural changes in their face. She wants clients to experience subtle improvements over time that allow them to adjust to their image as well being less noticeable to others and never appearing to “have had something done”. Her aestheticians provide services such as hair removal (including bikini wax), whitehead (milia) and blackhead removal, treatment for under-eye circles, the best eyebrow dye and many more. Dr. Smith can create an more youthful refreshed YOU to put forth in your social and professional circles with renewed confidence and self-esteem. That is her goal.
