A graduate of the Hudson Valley School for Advanced Aesthetic Skin Care, Anne is a licensed aesthetician who is very experienced in all medaesthetic treatments, particularly laser procedures. She has extensive knowledge of laser modalities including laser hair removal and photofacials. She is also highly qualified in more advanced facets of nonsurgical medaesthetics and assists Dr. Kim, Bellava's onsite physician, in both SlimLipo laser liposuction and nonablative fractional laser skin resurfacing for scars and stretch marks.
Before falling in love with her career in medaesthetics, Anne worked as a professional chef for over a decade. Her training took place at the Culinary Institute of America, one of the world’s most prestigious culinary colleges. In addition, Anne has traveled extensively and visited many of the world’s finest spas throughout Europe. She is very proud to be part of the Bellava team where she can continue to build upon her expertise in the fields of aesthetics and cosmetic medicine. She is highly regarded as an aesthetician whom clients can trust and feel confident with in her care.
Phyllis is a Best of Westchester award winning Aesthetician and has been a practicing, licensed Medical Aesthetician for 13 Years. Phyllis began her career in the medical field 18 years ago when she worked as a Nursing Assistant. In most recent years, Phyllis has gained experience and been employed in spa management as well as marketing. She is certified in Laser Hair Removal, Photo Rejuvenation, Skin Tightening, and Laser Vein Treatments. In addition to laser treatments, Phyllis performs Microdermabrasions, Customized Facials and Medical Grade Chemical Peels to prevent and correct the signs of aging, acne and sun-damage.
In addition, Phyllis has received, and continues to receive, training and education for all of the great products and services Bellava provides. She strives to help her patients obtain the outcome they are looking for. Sometimes what feels like a lifelong skin problem becomes a thing of the past with just a few short treatments. Phyllis is dedicated to helping you feel good about yourself; after all, that is what we want to achieve.
Phyllis provides complimentary consultations and provides detailed information regarding each product and service and creates a treatment plan that is best suited for each patient. Phyllis develops nurturing relationships with her patients that build confidence, trust and loyalty. Though Phyllis may be your clinician, she may often feel like a friend. Phyllis provides plastic surgery alternatives for those who are not quite ready to take that step, but she is also there to guide those patients who are.
