Shanthala MD Medspa and Laser Center
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.

What is CO2RE  fractional laser resurfacing?

CO2RE® is a fractional laser CO2 system that enables your physician to precisely target and effectively treat the skin’s surface, middle and deep dermal levels, plus perform traditional CO2 resurfacing and laser excision of lesions.

This treatment is lighter, faster, and a more versatile solution for skin resurfacing, traditional ablation and minor dermal excisions. CO2RE® has the ability to treat both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously with precision-control over the intensity, pattern and depth of ablation.

What are the conditions treated by CO2RE laser?

  • Skin tone & texture
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Age Spots
  • Acne scars
  • Pigmentation
  • Pores
  • Sagging skin
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Aged skin
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks

How do I know if CO2RE® treatments are right for me?

Ideal candidates for CO2RE® are in their 30’s or older with skin damaged by exposure to the sun, age spots, fine lines, discoloration, rough texture and other skin imperfections. It is ideal for anyone seeking younger looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures.

What is the CO2RE® procedure like?

You can expect some moderate discomfort during the treatment, but the anesthetic applied prior to the procedure typically makes any discomfort tolerable. For more aggressive, higher powered treatments, your practitioner may recommend a subcutaneous anesthetic, oral pain relievers and/or sedatives during the treatment session. Over-the-counter pain relievers may be taken in the days after the procedure to alleviate any residual discomfort.

Is CO2RE® safe?

Yes. You should speak with Dr. Shanthala about your complete medical and skin history to minimize the potential for any negative reactions.

How many CO2RE® treatments will I need?

Generally you will see the difference you want after only one treatment. In the days after the treatment your skin will gradually look softer and smoother. The age spots and uneven textures will start to show immediate improvement.

How long will the results last?

The durability of CO2RE® results approaches that of surgical procedures. However, there are a number of variables that will determine how long you can expect the results to last, including your health, age and how you care for your skin after treatment.

What can I expect after my procedure?

Immediately following the procedure you can expect a sensation similar to a sunburn, lasting several hours to days. You can expect peeling of dead skin from the treatment area. This is a natural exfoliation process that may last 7-10 days.

Do I need to take any special precautions after treatment?

Dr. Shanthala may recommend a short course of antibiotics, or valtrex to minimize any risk of infection. Use of a Alastin Nectar moisturizer and Physical Block sunscreen is recommended during the healing process and for the weeks and months following treatment.
