We’re number ONE!- Spiro Plastic Surgery and Regeneration The Medical Spa awarded best Spa in Essex county

We’re number one!. That is, Spiro Plastic Surgery and Regeneration the Medical Spa is number one. We were just awarded this distinguished honor from a poll taken by Suburban Essex magazine regarding best Spas in Essex county. Regeneration the Medical Spa offers the latest in comprehensive Medical Grade skin care Products and Peels, non surgical facial rejuvinative procedures such as Botox and cosmetic facial fillers, and the latest in non invasive fat reduction treatments using cool sculpting by Zeltiq. These services are provided by myself (director of services) for fillers and Botox, by my experienced, licensed, medical aesthetician (Beata) for skin care services, and by our two experienced, licensed, registered nurses ( Mary Beth and Maria) for cool sculpting, and for scar repair by our entire staff.

Our encompassing coordinated services are provided in our comfortable spacious office suite from 9 AM to 5 PM daily, evenings and on some weekends. By coordinated I refer to our efforts to coordinate and develop skin care regimens to the specific needs of both our surgical and nonsurgical patients. Interaction between nursing staff, aesthetician, and myself enhance the patient experience and improve the quality of our patients outcomes.

But, the complexity of coordinating Spiro Plastic Surgery and Regeneration the Medical Spa could really only happen with a professional like minded business staff to assure that the clinical outcomes we aspire to achieve are actually met. This includes coordinating, in some instances, a peel, a botox and or filler treatment, a cool sculpting session, and education about our product offerings all in the same visit. Mel, Diane, Veronica, Dina, and Kelly ( our expert office staff), are the reason we can get this done. Their main goal is to make our patients happy and they take great pride and joy in doing just that. None of this could happen without them.

We are committed to providing patients with the safest, most reproducible, effective products and services. We are always balancing the latest in science available with assuring that we provide products and services that really work. So when Zeltiq released the latest cool sculpting hand piece flat applicator for saddle bags, we were the first to receive it.  We offer the latest available Skin Medica and Obagi peels and products. We are  constantly evaluating new technologies, but we are very very picky in what we bring in. ( I might reject a technology merely because in our trials it was anticipated it would yield less than a 90 percent patient satisfaction rate).

Please join us in celebrating our staff, Spiro Plastic Surgery, and our happy patients. Follow our posts on instagram and Facebook closely as we are about to make a big announcement regarding our plans for a celebration.

Thank You for a great 2014 and heres to an even better 2015!

Tweaking Medical Grade Skin Care

To all our skin care patients-

In the past we were very sophisticated and cutting edge in skin care. We used to tweak our best lines by formulating subtle additions and variations to complement both Obagi and Skin Medica medical grade product and peel lines. I brought Beth K ( our beloved aesthetician for many years) back from Rhode Island for a one day pow wow where together with my new expert aesthetician Beata we revamped our skin care offerings to really make us cutting edge and leaders in skin care once again. Skin care is once again going to be very exciting at Spiro Plastic Surgery!!!

Botox Or Fillers?

Remember, Botox is a neuromodulator. It works by blocking the muscle response to nerve stimulation. Hence, animation lines in the face are diminished when Botox is injected. It is most useful for effect in the forehead, and crows feet.

 Fillers, such as restylane, juvederm, and others, work by filling gaps of volume loss or the interface between falling lax tissue and the next lowest fixed point. This is typically the lid cheek interface, the nasolabial folds, marionette areas, jaw line and lips.

So these two products are mutually exclusive and can often be used in combination to help achieve a more youthful appearance.

We now carry the Jane Iredale skin care makeup line!

We recently added the Jane Iredale line of makeup to our spa service offerings at regeneration the medical spa here at Spiro Plastic Surgery. The feedback has been amazing! Patients say it makes their pores appear smaller.  Even though it is complete coverage, it feels very light.  A key to its success is mixing it with a touch of the primer.  This allows it to glide on more easily.  Best of all it’s long lasting. Patients don’t feel the need to touch up through the day, and just a little bit goes a long way.  Come in to see us and experience the Jane Iredale skin care makeup line for yourself.  Many of our patients who appear on TV love it!

Good News Bad News!

first the good news…

Beth, our skin care specialist for the last four years, has announced she is getting married. We are all very happy for her and share her joy.

Now the bad news…

Beth is relocating to Rhode Island and unfortunately will be leaving Spiro Plastic Surgery. This is very sad and many many patients have shared their sadness with me. Beth has been fun, smart, compassionate, innovative and professional in her role as my lead skin care specialist over the years. She is recognized nationally by Obagi and Skin Medica for her accomplishments in skin care here at Spiro Plastic Surgery. She will be missed!

But wait, more good news…

As luck would have it we have been very fortunate to find a person as equally caring and as skilled as Beth to guide our patients in the future! Sonia Mace, comes with years of experience in skin care and has joined our team. Patients already adore her and she has a great relationship with Beth. So the transition has and will be a smooth one.

Please come to our open house on June 6th to celebrate these two fine professionals as one leaves and one begins!!

Regeneration
Promises to fill the needs of our patients who are seeking non-surgical facial & body regenerative skin care.
