Skin Rejuvenation is Sheila’s passion; she believes that beauty and young-looking skin begins with even skin tone. She has developed groundbreaking protocols using unique combinations of lasers designed to help achieve success for any skin type. Her goal is to promote healthy, younger-looking skin by using non-ablative skin lifting and tightening devices that slow the signs of aging and stimulate the production of collagen where it grows. Two of her favorites are Sofwave and Ulthera, which she believes are the best weapons to keep skin looking young with no downtime. Sheila also loves and relies on fractional and ablative lasers, which can help with skin tone, skin texture, fine lines, pigmentation, and so much more.

As a constant teacher, Sheila enjoys educating patients about the world of lasers and speaks of the benefit they will receive with one or many laser treatments. Patients will not only gain beautiful skin, but they will also come away with an understanding of the procedures. She thrives in being the first step in introducing clients to our fabulous world, and her results are among the best in the industry and can be seen at the first treatment.
