Jessica has been in the Medical field for the past 7 years. She works in our practice as our Medical Assistant. She also works alongside of our P.A. LaTonya Millben and assists her in Dermatology and spa procedures. Jessica has a genuine passion for the patients and Dermatology. At a very young age Jessica suffered from a number of skin conditions. Living with these conditions makes it personable and natural to empathize with patients. Jessica also stresses the importance of compassion and the ability to build and maintain positive relationships.
The VI Peel is one of Jessica’s favorite procedures. The peel is very aggressive and the only peel that is safe for hands, neck, chest and the eye area. Personally using it, Jessica knows first-hand how well the VI Peel stimulates collagen growth for an over-all younger more youthful look with minimal up keep.
Silvia is our Nurse Practitioner who has been injecting with us for the last 6 years under the training of Dr Berkowitz and has been certified with every procedure she performs in the office.
She also attends regular trainings with other injectors throughout the country that contributes to her knowledge and skill of a variety of injection techniques. She is able to determine the best technique for each individual based on their needs and their anatomy.
Her patients appreciate her thorough assessment and her ability to listen to their concerns, the result being natural and complimenting their unique features. She believes that when performed correctly, cosmetic injections are a safe, low maintenance way of enhancing each woman’s own beauty.
In addition to cosmetic injections, her knowledge and experience with all of our nonsurgical procedures in office allows for her to incorporate them when needed and take the aesthetic experience a step further to allow for a more well-rounded approach to facial rejuvenation.
Silvia has a passion for all that the aesthetic industry offers but her favorite treatments include Botox for fine lines, Microneedling for smooth skin texture, and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair loss, facial volume loss and sexual health. She is a true believer in prevention of aging and places great importance on the daily use of SPF as well as Vitamin C as easy home maintenance tools.
