Perhaps you know someone like Linda. She recently spent three months researching the best dishwasher for her kitchen. She read consumer-guide publications, scanned online reviews and interviewed salespeople at several retail stores. Linda finally purchased an appliance she expects will serve her family well for many years.
That vigilance is considered smart consumerism.
Yet when it comes to choosing the best med spa, some consumers select a provider without doing their homework.
Your skin and well-being deserve better. Finding the right team to trust for all your physical needs is the vital first step to overall wellness. And it starts with a closer look at a term that’s become generic: “med spa.” It doesn’t always mean there’s a medical doctor involved.
Where There IS a Doctor in the House
At the helm of Mirabile M.D. Beauty, Health and Wellness is James Mirabile, M.D., a trusted physician who – among his many professional honors – was named a “Super Doctor” by his peers for the last decade and in 2016 became a member of the “Super Doctors” Hall of Fame.
But Dr. Mirabile doesn’t just lend his name to the center that includes MedCosmetic; he is onsite daily to see patients and provide advice and support to the aestheticians and nurses on his team.
His presence, in fact, sidelined a potentially
damaging outcome for a patient who had received a chemical peel at another spa that made her hyperpigmentation worse. She came to MedCosmetic seeking laser treatment options to improve the problem. Realizing the case may be more complicated, the aesthetician called Dr. Mirabile into the consultation room. Dr. Mirabile suspected an underlying medical condition and immediately ordered lab work which confirmed his suspicions of an auto immune disorder. The patient is now receiving appropriate treatments from a specialist while improving her skin through safe procedures at MedCosmetic.
Tama Veltri, NCEA Certified Esthetician, explains that “Having Dr. Mirabile here gives me reassurance as a provider. I can get his advice on a treatment or ask about a potential underlying situation that’s causing the cosmetic issue. Often, it has to do with hormones.”
A Respected Expert in Hormone Therapy
When that’s the diagnosis, the patient has access to one of the most experienced and respected natural hormone replacement physicians in the nation. Dr. Mirabile and his team of Nurse Practitioners use a variety of treatment methods to correct hormonal imbalance in both men and women. One such method is SottoPelle® therapy. Because of great success with local patients, the Mirabile M.D. team is now a national SottoPelle training center for other SottoPelle providers across the United States. And, in 2015, Dr. Mirabile was named the national SottoPelle Medical Director.
At the Forefront of Non-Surgical Skin Care
MedCosmetic uses a variety of lasers to treat unwanted hair, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and age spots, acne and acne scarring, rosacea, unwanted tattoos and problem veins. Other procedures include Botox, Dysport, dermal fillers, facials, chemical peels and more. All equipment, treatments and protocols have been approved by Dr. Mirabile and tested extensively to make sure they provide not just optimum results but also at a good value. “That’s something we are very proud of,” says Veltri. “Not only do we offer the latest treatment options, but our prices are fair and very competitive with other offices.” To make treatments even more affordable, MedCosmetic runs regular promotions and has a Loyalty Rewards program, which rewards patients when they receive services from any division of the practice.
One of the latest breakthroughs offered at MedCosmetic is ThermiVa®, a non-surgical, non-invasive, no-downtime option that helps women dealing with urinary leakage, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse and other issues affecting feminine wellness. As a Board Certified Gynecologist, Dr. Mirabile evaluates every Mirabile M.D. patient considering ThermiVa. Although ThermiVa is a non-surgical procedure, there can be risks and it’s important that the patient’s vaginal health is thoroughly evaluated prior to her treatment. It’s just one more example of the importance of knowing the med spa you choose has a physician at its core.
If Weight loss is the Next Step
In addition to helping patients achieve wellness through gynecology and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy or gain self-confidence from skincare procedures, the Mirabile M.D. team also helps patients transform their health by losing weight. The weight loss division of Mirabile M.D., Medi-Weightloss®, has helped local patients lose over 38,000 pounds since 2010. Once again, Dr. Mirabile is a key member of this medically supervised weight loss team making sure Medi-Weightloss is an appropriate choice for each patient. “We determine what’s best for each individual,” Dr. Mirabile says. “We analyze the patient’s lifestyle and medical history before getting started and work closely with the patient through weekly visits to ensure long-term success.”
Synergy for Superb Health and Wellness
Dr. Mirabile founded his center on the belief that patients’ issues are often interrelated. By combining MedCosmetic, Medi-Weightloss, bio-identical hormone therapy and gynecology services into one place, men and women get optimum care and convenience. Mirabile M.D. is a one-stop shop for total wellness.
