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.

An article by Michelle Morrissette Cucchiaro

Life really is a journey, isn’t it? It’s an amazing collection of gains and losses, successes and failures, struggles and triumphs and what I believe to be most important, lessons and personal growth. I love it all, every last bit of it! You can’t have one without the other, it’s life’s balance.

As I approach 50, I am, more than ever, introspective. Everything seems to be about reflection, self awareness, and betterment. I want to be the best possible Me I can be both inside and out. I want to associate with only the most genuine of people, spend my time doing only the most worthy of activities and have a life rich with meaning. I want to fill my space with charity, kindness and warmth and in the end, happiness. I want to feel good about Me.

While my own personal journey has become more focused, it’s not been without struggle. The last two years have been tremendously challenging for me. While I intentionally choose not to elaborate on the battle, or focus on it, it’s important to mention as it’s all part of the balance. The gain/loss, success/failure, struggle/triumph. I’m growing so I must be doing something right!! I’m happy despite the struggle, or maybe because of it, the jury is still out on that one.

I may be at peace with who I am on the inside but 50 years of this “balancing act” will naturally take it’s toll. I don’t consider myself to be vain but I do like to look my best and when I look in the mirror I see tired. I see scars of a childhood illness and scars of teenage acne. I see damage from baking in the sun when I was in my foolish 20’s. I see lines from the pitiful smoking habit that I continue with to this day. I feel fresh and new on the inside but the outside just doesn’t match. It’s time to see Shanthala.

I’ve seen Shanthala ( before and I’ve even written about her. Dr. Shanthala is a wonderful friend and physician of all things aesthetic. The beauty of Shanthala is in her ability to nurture her patients, her ability to nurture me and that’s what I need. I take care of everyone in my life and for the time I spend with Shanthala, she takes care of me. She really is a love. Most importantly I trust her skill and judgement. She would never give me something I didn’t need. That is to say, if I requested some sort of procedure and/or an injection of some kind, she would not do it if she did not feel that I would benefit from it. It speaks volumes about her integrity and well meaning spirit.

I will see Shanthala and I will share my wonderful experiences with you. Join me on yet another journey of self care.
