I am so grateful that I found Dr. Shanthala. From the moment you enter her practice, you instantly feel calm and comfortable. The office staff are so friendly and informative regarding the process to put you at ease during your first visit. Dr. Shanthala took the time to sit with me and discuss my current aging concerns and goals without ever making me feel rushed or pressured. She thoroughly explained the anatomy of my face in a way that no other doctor has before and explained the important roles that each muscles plays in my facial expressions. It was obvious from the start that Dr. Shanthala is truly passionate about helping her clients look and feel their best. One of the most unique aspects of Dr. Shanthala’s practice is the fact that she takes the time to consult and educate you prior to completing any treatments or cosmetic procedures. She then takes before and after photos to track your progress and allow you to visually compare your results. Let me tell you, I was BLOWN away. After one Botox treatment with Dr. Shanthala, my face had a more youthful and wrinkle free glow without looking fake or frozen. I can’t tell you how many people came up to me within the first week of my treatment to tell me how healthy and well rested I looked. 5 stars are not enough for this amazing doctor. She treats each person as an individual and helps you to feel beautiful and confident. If you are considering trying Botox or any type of cosmetic treatment for the first time do not hesitate to book your consultation now. I promise, you will not regret it. I walked into Dr. Shanthala’s office looking to do something and ended up doing things totally different then what was planned. And I’m glad I went with her recommendation. She truly thinks about her clients and wants you to spend on your most needed improvement. Your money will be wisely spent if you listen to her.... Dr. Shanthala is truly amazing at what she does! She’s thoughtful and caring. Listens to your wants and needs and advises what she thinks is best. I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I’m an instant gratification kinda gal. Who thinks more is always better! She cares about her patients and would never do anything that wasn't in their best interest just because that’s what we wanted and were willing to pay. The atmosphere is welcoming and everyone is friendly and kind. I always feel comfortable from the beginning of the procedure, to the end. She talks you through and makes sure you know exactly what’s happening and when. I joked with Marciel as I was booking my next appointment that I will always come to Dr. Shanthala until she stops practicing and even then I may beg her to treat me from home! My lips have never felt fuller and I’ve never had such confidence as I do now!... Ever since I was seven, my left labia has always been a bit bigger than the right side, and to be honest, I was going to perform labiaplasty on myself because it bothered me too much. And I didn't even know that this existed until I spontaneously search for other women with the same problem. I was hesitant on paying $2K+ on this surgery because I am only 19, full-time college student, and... Words can’t express my gratitude! 100% satisfied. Wonderful doctor with great bedside manner. Highly recommend! Five star service.

Searching for Fresh and Lovely, the Journey Begins

With a heavy sigh I begin again.  I can remember starting my last journey and how it felt to step foot in that gym again, go to my first exercise class and experience what I was certain was a near death experience as I gasped for breath.  I promised myself I’d never let it get that bad, yet here I am again.  I don’t know how it happened and I’m not going to bother trying to figure it out.  I’m going to take a long look in the mirror, re-evaluate the situation and start again.  I’m a work in progress, I’m always going to be a work in progress.I took that first step, I looked in the mirror.  Aside from seeing the 20lbs I had lost last year reappear, I’m also seeing a few things I knew would eventually come…. wrinkles.  I know they don’t appear overnight but, honestly, I never saw them coming.  One day they aren’t there and the next day they are.  What to do?

Diet and exercise are an extremely important foundation for being healthy and looking great but you just can’t “undo” a wrinkle no matter how faithful you are to living a healthy lifestyle.  Or can you?

Many women have seen, heard of or been invited to what is commonly referred to as a “Botox Party” and I’m no different.  I’d heard about them, received invitations here and there but I just passed them by without much thought.  I guess I was under the impression that injections were something reserved for Hollywood.  Silly, I know, but that was my initial impression.  They are much more mainstream now and far more accessible than ever before and as I mentioned, this year I was feeling a bit different about the reflection staring back at me so when an acquaintance of  mine included me on the guest list for just such a “party”, I was intrigued.  A few phone calls and several conversations later and I agreed to attend.  Why not?

It was a snowy Monday evening in February and I was nervous and excited. I wasn’t at all sure of what to expect from this experience but I knew I wanted to check it out. I would sit and listen to what the doctor had to say and then make up my mind as to what, if anything, I’d have done. No pressure. I parked and made my way inside. Any nervousness quickly subsided as I entered Dr. Shanthala’s warmly inviting reception area. It was serene. Tastefully decorated in richly toned decor from the doctor’s native India, comfortable seating and a beautiful array of healthy snacks awaited the arriving guests. It was the perfect combination of relaxation, beauty and warm hospitality. I was greeted by a lovely woman who offered me a comfortable seat and my choice of a variety of different beverages. I chose a warm cup of herbal tea to sip while I nibbled on hummus and fruit.

Just moments passed and Dr. Shanthala quietly entered the room. She came toward me and introduced herself. She was lovely and warm. She was interesting and knowledgeable. She asked if I was ready and I was so she lead me to a treatment room for further examination and discussion about what was to be done. We talked as we walked and I really felt like I was with a friend. It’s hard to describe unless you meet her but it felt as though I’d known her for a very long time. I wondered if that was everyone’s experience? She’s lovely.

We arrived to the treatment room and I was gently directed to the treatment chair. The treatment room, like the reception area, was comfortable and tastefully decorated. Soft music played. We discussed injections, what they could and couldn’t do. She assessed my face and offered expert advice about products and services that could help me with the areas I felt uncomfortable about, areas that robbed me of feeling my best. She explained the different products that could be injected and I made an informed decision. I had two areas I wanted her to focus on, the lines between my eyes and my “crow’s feet.” The lines between my eyes give the appearance of constant stress, they make me look tired and old and it wasn’t a true depiction of how I felt so I wanted them gone. The “crow’s feet” also make me feel old before my time and if she could get rid of those then I’d be happy to see them go.

The process was simple, and relatively painless. A slight pinch made by the tiniest of needles in the area of the injection(s) is all you will feel. Dr. Shanthala was gentle and concerned throughout the process that took a bit less than an hour as she carefully chose each injection site for maximum benefit.

You can expect some immediate results but full results can take up to two weeks to reveal themselves. I was immediately pleased. I’ve included some before and after pictures so you can see the difference. I felt exactly how I wanted to feel….. fresh and lovely. What a perfect start to the journey that lay ahead.
Stay with me……..
