A Minute With
What new services are you excited to offer?
I have been doing a lot of Profound
RF microneedling treatments
and we’ve seen great results in the
lower face, jawline and neck area.
It works to tighten loose skin and
diminish fullness under the chin
that can draw the eye down. The
payoff is remarkable, you can see
increased definition in the area
and rejuvenated skin
How does it work?
Before, radio frequency devices
couldn’t penetrate the skin. Now,
with Profound RF, it’s the real
deal. The small, handheld device
delivers precise RF heat energy
through tiny needles. There’s
going to be some downtime, but
it’s worth it because you’re only
going to have to do it once to see
What are you best known for?
Using the art and science of
cosmetic therapy to devise an
affordable, custom treatment
plan to achieve even, vibrant skin
tones and smooth skin textures
What sets your practice apart?
I bring a cultural competence
to my work that is unique. We
are a very multicultural practice
and I’m also a pigment expert.
My expertise is in treating all
types of skin tones. I see a lot
of patients from diverse backgrounds
who have gone elsewhere
and were told they could not be
helped. I had a patient recently
with melasma who just needed
the right laser treatment for her
East-Asian skin tone
What is your favorite laser treatment?
Fraxel—it’s the workhorse
laser. We use it for general skin
resurfacing, melasma, stretch
marks, wrinkles, brown spots,
acne scars, keloids and more.
It’s just a very diverse laser that
is safe for all skin types
What is your ultimate skin-care tip?
Everyone should use a retinol!
My dream innovation

hair that’s not dark
