Vampire Facial & Instant Results with Dr. Shanthala

From the moment I consulted with Dr. Shanthala on the phone, I was at ease. She was a calming pres·ence, answering any and all questions before agreeing to meet. At no point did I feel like I was being targeted as a “sale”. Rather, Dr. Shanthala was thoughtful and provided me with a range of options for my perceived problem areas. Upon meeting her, any anxiety I had dissipated. Her office is so warm and welcoming and quickly, felt at home. I got instant results with my first microdermabrasion and even more lasting results with the PRP treatment (commonly referred to as a “vampire facial”). I am looking forward to seeing her regularly going forward, as my skin has never looked better. I feel grateful I reached out to Dr. Shanthala and recommend you all do the same.

wonderful service I received from Dr. Shanthala and her staff.

I went to Medspa & Laser center about three months ago for Coolsculpting of my abdominal area.  At the time I was a bit nervous due to information I had received from others who had the procedure done at another establishment, I had also done a lot of research into Coolsculpting.  I was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful service I received from Dr. Shanthala and her staff.   I felt that Dr. Shanthala was very honest in what she could do for me; she really took the time to see what would be the best option.   The process of Coolscultping was a bit uncomfortable but Dr. Shanthala walked me through the entire procedure, which helped with any anxiety I felt.  After three months I’m happy to say I did see results, and I think that’s due to Dr. Shanthala.  Any procedures I plan in the future will definitely be done at Medspa & Laser.  Thank you Dr. Shanthala.

My experience today with Dr. Shanthala was absolutely amazing.

From my consult to my treatment , I could not have asked for better service.   The doctor and her staff were honest, attentive and caring.  I strongly recommended ShanthalaMD Medspa without hesitation.   If you are looking for services of this type, look no further.  I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does,

I have been going here for about a year now, I have acne prone skin and a lot of scaring, they were very honest as to what can be done for my scaring and acne. I do peels and microdermabrasion on the regular and my skin has never looked or felt better! Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does, she really believes in her work. Dorothy is also wonderful and does a great job with my peels and micro. I have a few clients that I sent to Dr Shanthala and they have done many different procedures such as Botox, fillers and lip augmentations and they all said amazing things!

I had a wonderful experience with my Coolsculpting treatment.

Dr. Shanthala and her staff are very attentive and professional. The treatment was easy and during the whole time I was continuously checked on. I received detailed information about my procedure from start to finish. I know I can count on Dr. Shanthala and her staff to take care of any of my additional needs. I highly recommend their services!

Her meticulous nature of professionalism really made me feel at ease with my decision. AAA+ service

After doing some serious research on Coolsculpting and receiving various quotes, I finally decided on doing it here. I was amazed that the DR.  Would take the time  to make sure you understood the process of your procedure but also that she would personally do it for you.  Her meticulous nature of professionalism really made me feel at ease with my decision.  AAA+ service

Her presence is empathetic, calming and so positive!!!

Have been seeing Dr. Shanthala for almost two years. Each visit being better than the last. She consistently exceeds my expectations. She is extremely knowledgeable and provides a very thorough and honest overview of the benefits, costs and length of any and all treatments that I inquire about.  There is zero pressure, EVER, and she simply gives me the information for me to make the decisions based on my concerns alone. The atmosphere of her office is comfortable and her presence is empathetic, calming and so positive!!! She is by far one of the most genuinely sincere, intelligent and talented people I have ever had the pleasure to know.  If you are considering any treatments visit with Dr. Shanthala, who will give you honest answers!

Cool sculpting for love handles, Excellent Results!

Perfect. Very comforting and relaxing. I am 55 yr old male. Had coolsculpting on love handles 1month ago. Minimal discomfort and already great results! Enough that I just finished another cool sculpting treatment on the abdomen. Very thorough consultation and meticulous about performing the procedure. I am thrilled with the results so far, can’t wait for the final results. Thank you Dr. Shanthala! I will add photos at my next follow up visit.

Worldclass

I was a beauty writer/editor for various magazines years ago including Vogue, Allure, etc. I’ve therefore had access to the best doctors, beauty treatments and beauty professionals in the world, from New York to Los Angeles to Miami to Paris to London and so on. Essentially, I was a guinea pig for everything trending in aesthetics for a very long time. When I recently moved/returned to the North Shore, I was convinced my days of sophisticated beauty treatments were over. And then I found Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa. Since I gave birth a year ago, she has helped me recover the youth and prettiness I was certain I’d lost forever in the hospital delivery room. She is the real deal. Again, I say this as someone who has had experience with truly the best. I see her monthly now for fun little nips and jabs and scrapes and removals and all manner of mechanical and laser applications and I trust her entirely with the fine tuning of both my face and body. She has more trendy and proven beauty technology in her spa then anyone in Boston, by far. And she has personally trained with all the legends in the business. I am a complete snob. I am not ashamed to admit this. Here, my snobbishness and extremely high standards and rare experience in this field, should lend some credibility to my opinion. She is one of a kind. I reluctantly share this review/my secret because she is such a diamond in the rough and my life would be better if she has less traffic in her office and could see me at my whim. (Which, in truth, she basically does. Me and, it seems, many of her beloved clients whom she cares for like a little girl does her most treasured and beautiful dolls.)

You feel like you’re her only patient!

I had never had anything done before, and I wanted to look natural and “refreshed,” not like I’d had anything done. I also wanted a doctor to do any procedure. I had Botox, Restalyne, and CoolSculpting done. I just had CoolSculpting done a week ago, so I’m waiting for results, but the Botox and Restalyne (with some PRP) was amazing. Dr. Shanthala and her staff are so warm, welcoming, and professional. I was never rushed, and everyone made an effort to get to know me. Dr. Shanthala really tailors each procedure to her client–there are so many options!–and she was thoughtful about what I needed–and what I didn’t–and was so comforting. She immediately put me at ease. You feel like you’re her only patient!

Cool sculpting, yes it really works!

The Best! She is extremely intelligent, beautiful ( inside and out ) and truly cares about her patients. I had cool sculpting done, and yes ladies it really does work. No pain, a little sore the next day. Totally worth it! Absolutely going back for some other treatments.

I met Dr. Shanthala and instantly I seen how sweet,

I met Dr. Shanthala and instantly I seen how sweet, professional and knowledgeable she was. About 6 months ago I went to a local Medspa and received the Cool Sculpt. I was very unimpressed; the place I went to was very unprofessional and they did not go over half the stuff that Dr. Shanthala went over with me. As soon as I walked into Shanthala Med Spa I knew it was a much better choice for me. It has a very warm and inviting feel to it. As I talked with Dr. Shanthala I realized she is not all about the money; she takes her job very serious and will let you know the truth. I immediately felt at ease when speaking with her. During my procedure Dr. Shanthala went out of her way to make me feel comfortable. Unlike the last place that I received the Cool Sculpt, Dr Shanthala was meticulous about her placement on the areas I was getting treated. I couldn’t be any more pleased this time around, and I am more than thrilled to have more things done at Shanthala Med Spa. I ended up getting my lips and some botox, the out come was amazing it was very natural. Dr. Shanthala is not only amazing at what she does she is also the sweetest person you can meet. I recommend the Cool Sculpt and I recommend going to Dr. Shanthala for anything that she offers.

Dr. Shanthala and staff are amazing!

The office staff was extremely gracious, and treatment rooms are very comfortable. They explained the process, reviewed best areas to treat to see maximum results and set expectations. I had an opportunity to see before/after of her patients and cannot wait to see my final results.

Overall I’d say the treatment was not painful. Some discomfort but nothing that wasn’t totally tolerable. If you’re worried about “pain”, I’d say DO NOT be. It’s relatively fast. I was actually more excited than anything!

I’ll update the post with my own before/afters when the results are in!!

1st I’d like to just say that Dr.Shanthala is the best!
After 3 kids and in my early 30’s and struggling with my stomach area I looked into coolsculpting:
After meeting and explaining my insecurities with Dr.Shanthala she assured me that what I was looking for she could help me with & with that she did!
She made me feel absolutely confident about my body & I now I can actually say I feel sexy.
Thank you and to the help of her nurses making sure I was comfortable during this procedure it made it that much more relaxing and calm. I highly recommend her for this procedure and many more.
THe results are real and I can prove it.

Dr. Shanthala is Fantastic! – Peabody, MA

I’ve had two separate sessions of Cool Sculpt done at Shanthala Med Spa, 6 treatments 10/14 and 4 more 5/16. I am so pleased with the results. Dr. Shanthala is incredibly professional and has your best interests in mind. There are now two Cool Sculpt machines in her office, when I did the first treatments she only had one so everything took twice as long, with two you can be done in half the time- VERY convenient and quick! She only suggests treatments that actually suit you and will work. She provides many other services in addition to Cool Sculpt and I have also done microdermabrasion, peels, botox and micro -needling with her. I’ve been super pleased with everything she has suggested!

Excellent correction of horribly deformed post surgical eye hollows by Dr. Shanthala

Dr. Shantala used Retylane to smooth out the hollows under my eyes. I previously had unsuccessful cosmetic tear trough surgery that left me horribly deformed. I had corrective surgery that allowed me to go out in pubic again, but there was much need for improvement. My ocular surgeon asked me not to get fillers, fearing I would mess up his work. Nonetheless, after having had several successful procedures with Dr. Shanthala (Botox, Ultherapy and CoolSculpt), I trusted that she could help me and would not have agreed to do something that was risky or beyond her expertise. I made the leap of faith and had the Restylane injection and I am thrilled I did. My under eye area is now fully restored to normal. Because she is a physician and has that deep understanding of anatomy, Dr. Shanthala is really a pro at using fillers. Rather than injecting the filler with needles, she uses a tiny cannula that she passes between tissues. It is slower, methodical, less painful, no bruising or bleeding as she is not breaking through tissue. It’s amazing and the results are spectacular. BTW, I also had great results with CoolSculpt to my mid section (no more muffin top) and an Ultherapy treatment that fixed the sagging skin on my neck and jowl line (which had previously been treated at a spa with an RF device that was time consuming, expensive and did very little to correct the problem). Dr. Shanthala is also a very warm person who really listens to you and will spend all the time with you that you need. Never rushed, very attentive.

Athletic Man – CoolSculpting Works!

I had this procedure performed on my lower belly and sides (love handles) by Dr Shanthala. I was a bit skeptical since I had not had any procedures like this done in my 65 years. My wife spoke very highly of Dr Shanthala so I gave it a try. I work out at the gym 5-6 days a week but have problem areas that I simply can’t get rid of. Coolsculpting did make a difference. Even though it isn’t a silver bullet, you will definitely see results!! Don’t hesitate – give it a try!!

Coolsculpt for Saddlebags and Inner Thighs

I have been plagued with saddlebags no matter how thin I would get, still I would have this area that really bothered me so much because the saddlebags made me look wide. Runs in my family. Also had upper inner thighs done and am very happy with the results. More so with the saddlebags since they bothered me so much.

Coolsculpting- 28 Year Old, No Kids, Stubborn Belly After 30lb Weight Loss

I saw Dr Shanthala’s reviews on yelp and RealSelf and had a consultation with her. She’s very personable and has excellent bed-side manner. She decided on two small treatments for the upper abdomen, 2 small on the lower abdomen, and the flanks as well (6 total treatments) rather than the large applicators because she said she could get a better shape. She was also said I’d likely need a second treatment. When I had the coolsculpting appointment, it didn’t hurt nearly as much as I was anticipating at all. The most uncomfortable part was sitting for that long. She also uses the z-wave machine after massage because she said you get better results at no extra charge. She really went out of her way to make sure I was happy the whole time (snacks, water, and thankfully Hulu and Netflix). While it didn’t hurt, I was surprised at how much swelling there was. I’m three days post treatment and I’m still numb though the tenderness has diminished somewhat. Swelling has gone down a little bit but I’m getting pins and needles. Nothing too unbearable but very very strange feeling.

Busy Professional Woman with 3 Kids

CoolSculpting was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. I work out everyday and eat a healthy diet. There were areas that, no matter what I tried, just wouldn’t go away. CoolSculpting did the trick. It is easy, non-invasive and not painful. The experience at the office I got the treatment was amazing. Very professional, courteous and respectful. The doctor was there for me whenever I needed anything. She went out of her way to make sure that I was comfortable throughout and even brought me in lunch! I would definitely recommend it and will do it again myself.

Dr. Shanthala is a brilliant doctor and wonderful

Dr. Shanthala is a brilliant doctor and wonderful person. I have had a number of procedures with her — Clear & Brilliant, dermal fillers, botox and microdermabrasion — and every experience has been outstanding. She has a phenomenal eye and an incredibly soothing manner. I can be nervous about getting any work done and every time she put me completely at ease. I trust her completely — she is truly an artist at what she does, and her work is flawless. She’s also kind, smart, warm and fun to be around. I’m always happy to see her, and leave her office feeling like the best version of myself. I cannot recommend her highly enough — she is truly the best!

Dr Shanthala Shivananjappa is a jewel at her med spa in Peabody! I recently visited her spa for my very first fillers.I had my lip line and depressions under my eyes filled. She is professional,knowledgeable and very skilled. My procedure was totally pain free and I have been enjoying the results every day! What a difference! I have been back twice since them for endymed tightening as well as calculating.Can you tell that I am hooked! Each time I have been there both Shanthala and her assistant Torry have been so warm and welcoming, I don’t believe I would have been treated with more patience and care if I had been family. Love the environment she has created and plan to return. You won’t be disappointed!

Great experience

Dr. Shanthala was very professional and knowledgeable. She listened to all my concerns and took the time to explain different procedures. I had coolsculpting a few months back and I feel was very successful. Then I had ultherapy a few days ago which I am still waiting for results.The office was clean and friendly. They even called a few days later to see how I was doing. I would highly recommend Shanthala.

Highly recommended

I have visited Dr. Shanthala 3 times now. The first appointment she spent one hour just talking about my prospective procedures and what I want to achieve. It was a very comfortable experience and she is more than knowledgeable about each process. After my first procedure, I knew that this doctor is a true professional who uses the smartest approach to achieve the natural look I want. I can’t say enough good things about her.

A different league for this area

What this doctor reminds me of is something one only usually finds on the west coast. I have had countless treatments. You have the ability to forge an ongoing relationship and truly make changes that she is interested in, every bit as much as you are. You can go to her quite often and get evaluated from head to toe and take steps to partner up with her to make those changes. She doesn’t sell you something she doesn’t believe in. I can’t say enough about her that’s good. If you haven’t tried clear and brilliant do so! Make sure you pick the right doctor though!

She’s one of a kind – Boston, MA

I had coolscultping done with Dr. Shanthala last September and from the beginning of my consultation I knew I was in great hands. She was very knowledgeable about the procedure and took time to answer all of my questions thoroughly. I ended up doing 12 different areas and was very comfortable throughout the entire process. After the procedure I had quite a bit of swelling but Dr. Shanthala called me multiple times to check up on me and assure me I was fine and the swelling was part of the healing process. She even offered to pay me a home visit to see how I was healing! Once everything healed I had an AMAZING result! Dr. Shanthala truly cares about her patients and them getting the best result. I have never met a more caring and thoughtful physician before and would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in cosmetic procedures.

Kind, compassionate, caring,

My appointment with Shanthala was a wonderful experience. She answered all my questions and was so kind and caring. I felt a very strong sense of trust. Shanthala was very honest about the amount of pain that I would be feeling. During the process, she was compassionate and so pleasant. I have already highly recommended her to friends. She is a lovely person and a great doctor. Thanks Shanthala. I really appreciate all that you have done for me.

A beautiful experience!

Dr. Shanthala is a true one of a kind doctor. I have had several treatments with her. I have a very rare strain of linear scleroderma called ‘morphea’ basically causing me to scar for no reason. Dr. Shanthala did extensive research on my condition before she would treat me. I had Coolsculpt as well as Kybella performed. It has been months since I have had my treatments and neither triggered an outburst of my rare condition. I was very careful with the practitioner I chose and my faith landed in the hands of Dr. Shanthala. Her kindness and exquisite expertise made me feel invincible post procedure. The staff is always extremely friendly and knowledgable. If I could give 10 stars, I would. Thank you Dr. Shanthala for making me feel safe and beautiful.

Dr. Shanthala is the best! I have been to other physicians who rush you in and out in 15 minutes. Dr. Shanthala discusses the best options and together we decide the treatment plan. She is truly a beautiful person inside and out.

Dr. Shanthala is THE BEST!

Dr. Shanthala and her staff are amazing! I had a great experience with my Coolsculpting treatment here and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for this procedure. I have had the procedure twice as well as the mini on my chin the second time. Dr. Shanthala made special arrangements to treat me on her day off the first time as I was moving out of the area. She and her staff were there they whole time checking on me, making me comfortable and ensuring perfectionism during the treatment. The treatment itself took half the time it may have at other locations due to the dual suctions. There was discomfort which I was educated about throughout the entire process and this was minimized as much as possible. Dr. Shanthala and her staff continued to follow-up with me to track my progress in the weeks following. When I returned two years later to do another round after the birth of my second child, they remembered everything about me and again made the process extremely easy and even fun! This time around there was nearly no discomfort because the equipment has been updated and she keeps up with the latest and greatest. They truly care about you as a patient and about making you happy with your results. I am really excited and feel fortunate I found them and made the choice to work with them. I did a lot of research prior to making the commitment to this procedure and do not believe I could have been treated better anywhere else. This is truly a professional organization that puts a lot of work and care into what they do!

A fitness model/athlete looking to be her best self…

I am a female fitness model and ultra runner. I eat very little processed foods, refined sugar, etc, and obviously workout regularly and properly. Despite this, I found that at 31 I have some stubborn fat on my abdomen that diet and exercise alone were not addressing in a way that was satisfactory. It was nothing crazy, and I overall am very happy with and feel good about my body. However, I really wanted that extra edge when I go to book a modeling gig, and to feel that much lighter and trim on the trails. Dr. Shanthala and her team are some of the most down to earth, compassionate, genuine, and caring folks you will find in this field, hands down. They will not allow you to have a procedure done unless you are 100% a good candidate, and make sure to explain all of the pros, cons, and things that could go both right and wrong beforehand. As a patient, you feel very informed and empowered, and could not be happier with my results. It’s only been two months, so I know there is EVEN MORE fat loss to go! Coolsculpting as been a game-changing, non-invasive, highly effective alternative to liposuction, extreme dieting, etc. Highly recommended.

Shanthala is absolutely the most knowledgeable and trustworthy doctor to do this Procedure! I was frightened but she walked me through every step of the procedure so lovingly and assertively.

Great atmosphere and great staff

I am a male approaching 40 yrs old and I have been a patient of Dr Shanthala for approx 15 months. Dr. Shanthala is very talented at the craft of aesthetic enhancement! She meets your expectations with experience as well as creative and realistic insight and does not over- promise and under- deliver, like some other doctors and professionals. I was new to the whole botox treatment plan and only decided to follow through because of the lines in my forehead and the angry lines in my brow. People were asking me if I was angry at them, when I was only starring off in their direction lol. I also had a very special event ahead of me and I wanted to stop the progressive nature of the deep lines and soften the skin up a little. Dr Shanthala starts treatments off slow and gets to know both her patients skin as well as their personality and tolerance for different treatments. It is not a high pressure place and as the patient you begin to learn more each time as the doctor tailors a plan or just makes suggestions based on your unique facial canvas. The atmosphere is professional but relaxed and fun. Coming from someone that lifted weights and laid in the sun and tanning booth for years, I wanted to make a change and slow down the aging process as part of my mini mid life crisis.HA. Dr Shanthala is the best doctor to be a part of that process with her experience, honesty, and humor! You don’t have to be a woman or even a man that wears a suit and tie to work everyday, in order to want to look a little more polished!

CoolSculpting worked for me!

Last November I finally went ahead and met with Dr. Shanthala to see if CoolSculpting is right for me. Dr. Shanthala and her staff were very kind, caring, and patient with me. After reviewing my body she said I was a good candidate and she was available to take me then and there. I did it! I am 47, 3 kids, and needed something to help with the stubborn belly and back fat. I am over joyed with the results to say the least. Recenlty, I went back for more CoolSculpting to target my “love handles”. Again, very happy with the results. I am hooked!

Amazing results

I had just undergone Coolmini. It is just like coolsculpting but in a smaller area. Shanthala treated me like an old friend of hers right from the start. She is a very warm and caring physician. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to better themselves. I have seen such a difference in my double chin in just two weeks. It was alittle bit numb for about 3 weeks but not anymore. I can’t wait to go back to see Shanthala. I promise you , you wouldn’t want to go anywhere else

Excellent Doctor

I had a very good experience with Shivananjappa. She is the most sensitive doctor I ever met. She really takes the time to hear what you want, what bothers you and why. She spent so much time with me to discuss what bothered me, gave me a bunch of options and the pros/cons of each and would not let me decide right there what i wanted to do. She wanted to give me time and provided me with material to research. I decided on coolsculpting and very happy with the results. I will continue to see Dr Shivananjappa.

A true skin master!!

I visited Dr. Shanthala a couple of times prior to my wedding and I can’t be more satisfied! Thanks to her everyone keeps complimenting how great I look on the big day. She is very knowledgeable, truly listens to all my concerns and her recommended treatments are always effective. She recommended PRP injections to fill the holes near my under eye area, along with hydra facials and vampire facials to make sure my skin is under the best condition. All of the treatments worked wonderfully. Every time I visit I can feel she really cares about each patient and she is very passionate about delivering the optimal result. Best doctor I know!

I am very happy with the results.

I recently had a Cool Sculpting procedure for my stomach area with Dr. Shanthala. After 6 weeks, I am very happy with the results. The procedure is relatively painless, and although my skin was sensitive for a couple of weeks, I had no down time. My stomach is flatter, and the skin around my stomach area is firmer.  Dr. Shanthala was very honest and upfront about what I would expect from the procedure. I visited two other Cool Sculpting centers before I chose to have my treatment with Dr. Shanthala. I chose her because she took all the time I needed to explain the equipment and procedure. She was upfront, and sensitive about explaining the type of treatment I would need, and made me feel comfortable with her level of expertise. I paid a consulting fee for this, but it was deducted from my procedure cost. I find the medical cosmetic industry to be very overwhelming and intimidating. Dr. Shanthala took away my apprehension. I am now interested in trying other treatments, but only because I feel more informed. I would highly recommend her center.

Dr. Shanthala is well informed and gracious. She instantly made me feel welcomed.

Shanthala is  well informed and gracious. She instantly made me feel welcomed.  I am very particular and cautious on who I choose to work with. I want to enhance not change anything. I am always nervous some one is going to go overboard and there will be no turning back. Shanthala only recommends what you need; she would rather you get the results you want then overly push to make more money.  I had the new Restylane Silk for botox and I loved the results.

I also have received Cool sculpt treatments on my stomach area. I had been to a place prior and was not very happy; Shanthala was very careful with her placement which is really important.  I am very happy with my results!

I recently visited Dr. Shanthala at her gorgeous office

I recently visited Dr. Shanthala at her gorgeous office suite to have microdermabrasion one week and a laser facial treatment the next. As I was walking in a patient was leaving, she turned to me and said, “that I would love her and that she is miracle worker!!”  I don’t write a lot of reviews on yelp but that woman was spot on! My skin feels so smooth and is absolutely glowing……I am happy to look in the mirror! Dr. Shanthala is not only a skilled doctor with multiple degrees and certifications, but a very caring and compassionate person. She spent the time to walk me through her beautiful facility and educate me on her different procedures, then she recommended a few to me that would suit my needs. I am thrilled with the results and wanted to share. (She is definitely not your typical injector or laser operator.) Even if you are getting treatments elsewhere, you need to come and give her a try. You will never go anywhere else!!

Visiting Dr. Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best thing

Visiting Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best  thing I have done for my self in years. I have tried several medspa type businesses in the past. They were  all good, but often they did not stay on top of the latest, safest and best procedures. None of these medspas had the expertise of   Shanthala. They also were  more about volume of clients, where Shanthala is all about doing what is best, for you , her most important client of the moment. You feel this attitude.. Her approach and consultation are also comfortable for the client, honest detailed information , no high pressure tactics. She is constantly training and attending  conferences and classes. She in compassionate, highly intelligent, has a wonderful bedside manner, and a great sense of humor. She holds herself to the highest  standards. The environment is meticulous, and so inviting. She is informative, affable and professional. My skin looks great and I had a wonderful time visiting her office . I had a micro needling procedure. A week later my  skin looks so beautiful. I have already called to book another appointment. I live closer to Boston, but the skills, service and experience of visiting Shanthala are better, than those offered in  areas more convenient to my home.
Oh, I also stopped for an  amazing crepe  at New Art of Gelato, after my visit to Shanthala. What a perfect day. This gelato and crepe place is less than 5 minutes from Shanthala, and the food was delicious. I had a spinach tomato and goat cheese crepe, and  freshly made blueberry gelato . My trip to Peabody was completely worth the drive. I also had very little traffic,as I booked my appointment on a Saturday morning.  I am so happy I made the effort to visit Shanthala. My entire experience was positive. the trip to Peabody is also very easy , and her office is just off an exit.

Her office is gorgeous

Dr Shanthala has done my Botox, CoolSculpting and microdermabrasion! I absolutely love her! She is so sweet and it is clear how much she cares about her patients and providing the best outcome possible. Her office is gorgeous and she does everything she can to make you feel comfortable.

Dr, Shanthala has been helping me with acne scars and aging skin

I am writing this review for all the men that do not believe that aging and skin care is as important as watching football or hanging in the man cave. Dr, Shanthala has been helping me with acne scars and aging skin with sun damage, she has also performed two cool sculpting procedures. It is are to find someone as genuinely honest with the focus on trying to grow her business with satisfied patients with sacrificing cost. I am amazed at how comfortable i was made to feel by her form the moment I walked in, she is a true testament to how business should be done in this day in age. I think people loose sight of the fact that it is about building relationships not always about getting the most money out of your patients. Many others in this field should take a good look at her business model in due time it she will become very successful and deservedly so.

thank you again it has been amazing

Amazing!!!!

My mom has always said, “you get what you pay for.” So if you’re looking for a cheap and quick fix, then keep looking. When it comes to my health and beauty regime, I’ve done my research, and Dr. Shanthala is well worth the price to pay. Well versed in her practice and being completely in tune to my needs, you are sure to step into the hands of someone who listens and honestly recommends according to your current needs. I’ve felt every purchase of treatment I’ve made, well worth the time and price with Shanthala; she will not sell you on something you don’t need. This is not a medspa factory, and you are not a medical record number. Consider yourself a lifetime investment, because that is what Shanthala is about; you will not find a more individualized, passionate, and approachable Doctor around.

Dr. Shanthala is awesome!

Shanthala is awesome!  Not only is she an MD but she is caring and gracious.  She makes sure that you understand all treatment options and recommends what is best for you.  I initially went to one of the franchises and it was very sales oriented with junior staff as the primary people you interact with.  You will have the totally opposite experience with Shanthala AND the treatments really work!  She cares from the minute you walk into her medspa, throughout the entire treatment and after.  It amazes me that she has such fantastic bedside manner, as I have not experienced that very often with many doctors.  Don’t waste your time going anywhere else!

she is amazing.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Shanthala, she is amazing. I have had several treatments with her but this review is specifically touting her expertise with Botox. A few years ago I decided I wanted to try some botox, my kids had been asking me “why are you making a mad face mommy?” – I realized I was getting some serious lines between my eyebrows. I went to a local RN and initially though she had a done a good job until I realized that my eyebrows were completely spread apart, and my entire forehead frozen, I didn’t even look like myself, it was terrible. I also had a lot of bruising which at the time, not knowing any better,  I thought was normal. Flash forward a year and to a visit to Shanthala for microdermabrasion and she suggested I try botox again. She explained her method and promised I would not have that same frozen look. Shanthala suggests that botox should be done more frequently but with less amounts (units) than others use. The other thing she does is she administers the botox in far more locations, smaller amounts but spread out more. She also noticed a vein down the middle of my forehead and was sure to avoid it to prevent bruising. I can’t tell you how many people I now notice that have had horrible botox treatments. It is so distracting while having a conversation! With Shanthala’s skilled hand my wrinkles are gone, my face looks relaxed and smooth, and I look like a better version of myself. She is a genius!

Dr. Shanthala and her staff are so amazing.

I continue to be so very pleased with the services provided by Shanthala Med Spa. Dr. Shanthala and her staff are so amazing. I have had several procedures over the past four months and am amazed at how good my skin looks. I have spent my entire adult life searching for the services provided at Shanthala Med Spa. Dr. Shanthala tailor makes a plan for each and every client. No cookie cutter services like most other Med Spas and Dermatologists offices. I highly recommend Shanthala Med Spa.

Dr. Shanthala and her staff are amazing!

Dr. Shanthala and her staff are amazing!  I had a great experience with my Coolsculpting treatment here and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for this procedure.  Dr. Shanthala made special arrangements to treat me on her day off as I was moving out of the area.  She and her staff were there they whole time checking on me, making me comfortable and ensuring perfectionism during the treatment.  The treatment itself took half the time it may have at other locations due to the dual suctions.  There was discomfort which I was educated about throughout the entire process and this was minimized as much as possible.  Dr. Shanthala and her staff continued to follow-up with me to track my progress in the weeks following.  They truly care about you as a patient and about making you happy with your results.  I am really excited and feel fortunate I found them and made the choice to work with them.  I did a lot of research prior to making the commitment to this procedure and do not believe I could have been treated better anywhere else.  This is truly a professional organization that puts a lot of work and care into what they do!

extremely satisfied with the outcome

I started noticing lines in my forehead and did not like what I saw. I called Dr Shanthala….as a friend had treatments done there and was extremely satisfied with the outcome….and went in. Imagine my surprise at how warm and welcoming they were. I do have to say I was a bit apprehensive…but the staff, including Dr Shanthala made me feel comfortable. The thing that really surprised me was that I wanted to do Botox in a few areas but Dr Shanthala stated I did not need it done in all those areas. She proceeded with the Botox, only where she felt it was needed, and I cannot thank her enough!! Not only do I look 10 years younger, but I’m still aghast that unlike most other spas, the Doctor did not perform a treatment that she felt I did not need. If you are thinking of Botox, or any other treatment, please seek out Dr Shanthala. You will be happy you did.

I really appreciate everything Doctor Shanthala has done for me.

My experience with Dr Shanthala has been unlike  any other doctor experience I’ve had prior. Dr Shanthala spent over one hour with me in my initial consultation. She helped educate me about how the acne scars were formed and how different treatments can help with the scars. She is very understanding as this is a sensitive subject for me. Also very comforting when I was brought to tears after talking about my struggle! she even stayed late and did my first treatment the same night as my consultation because she truly cares and didn’t want me to be sad anymore! We came up with a plan that works for me and my type of acne scars (mostly rolling mixed with some other types) . I am only on my second month of treatment but I trust the doctor and our plan. We are trying subcision mixed with other treatments to treat the look of the scars. When we get to a certain point where I am satisfied then we will include bellafill for volume.

Overall, it’s important to trust your doctor and the plan.  You should do your research but let her do her job and don’t try and go there and be the doctor. DR. Shanthala has helped me  learn  that the treatment of acne scars will take time. I still have a long road ahead but I am already starting to feel more confident and care less about my acne scars because I know I am treating them.
I really appreciate everything Doctor Shanthala has done for me. She is very respectful , easy to talk to, caring, and a great listener. She really wants to help you. Since it’s her business she can take the time to treat you and come up with a plan that you feel comfortable with and that’s right for your type of acne scars!

Of note, I have previously tried non-ablative Fraxel Laser treatments suggested by a cosmetic dermatologist at a major hospital in Boston and was disappointed when there was no significant difference after the three recommended  treatments.

I hope this review helps at least one person that’s struggling with acne scars like me!

Dr. Shanthala is an amazing physician

Dr. Shanthala is an amazing physician and true artist who cares deeply about her work and her patients.  I felt as if I were at a spa with the level of pampering and personal attention that I received from both the doctor and her staff.  From my consultation appointment to my actual procedure, I knew that I was in good hands. Dr. Shanthala listened to my concerns and wants before recommending the procedures that would give me the exact look I desired. I am thrilled with the outcome and am looking forward to returning to her wonderful practice.

You can trust both her judgement and skill.

She is a wonderful provider and will not do anything she isn’t 100  percent sure that you need and would benefit from. That is so very rare in this field.
You would be hard pressed to find someone who will take the time she takes and talk you out of just as many things as others will talk you into. You can trust both her judgement and skill.
She doesn’t run this as a business as much as a partnership with you – for you. I can’t say enough about her that’s positive.

She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.

From the moment I met Dr. Shanthala, I could see that this woman exudes CLASS.  She has the most professional and caring demeanor. She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.  This is a very knowledgeable woman. Did I mention that she is a doctor?! Not only does she perform all procedures with the utmost care, but she also is very aware of sterile technique. As a Registered Nurse, I find this trait very appealing. She takes the time to educate each of her patients and makes them feel completely comfortable before she proceeds with any treatment.

After consulting with Dr. Shanthala, I decided on micro needling. As a woman in my early 40s, I am starting to see uneven skin tones, sagginess and fine wrinkles around my eyes, forehead and laugh lines. What I love about the micro needling is that it is an all-in-one type of procedure. It helps with wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tightening, large pores and acne. I have had 2 treatments and have already seen remarkable improvements in my skin. I notice less wrinkle lines, a smoother appearance and more even skin tones.  The best part is there is no down time for this procedure. Before visiting her med spa, I was on an acne medicine for years. Since I have been seeing Dr. Shanthala, I ‘ve been able to stop taking this medication! My skin has never looked better.

I can honestly say that Dr. Shanthala has become one of my favorite people. She is passionate about what she does and her customer service is impeccable. I absolutely love going to her medical spa. The ambiance is inviting, the care is top-notch and the staff is supportive, inviting and caring. Take my advice and experience it for yourself. I can promise, you will not be disappointed!

Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING!

I went to see Dr. Shanthala a month before my sister’s wedding. I recently had a baby and am still very much over weight and so my self esteem was at an all time low. Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING! She spent a really long time with me, making sure we pick the absolute best treatment. Never once did I feel pressured into anything unnecessary (if anything, she kept telling me I don’t need things done!) and the results are beyond my expectations! I feel like myself again. Thank you!!!

I am so happy with the results

I recently had a microdermabrasion and laser facial treatment at Shanthala MD MedSpa. I am so happy with the results that I felt I must share. First, let me say that she is not your typical injector or laser operator, she is a doctor with a wealth of knowledge and a genuinely caring and compassionate person. She spent a lot of time educating me on her different procedures and walked me through her spectacular facility, which alone, blew me away. The laser procedure took muchpatience on her end and she even had her staff run out for goodies as I was there for a long period. She was a pure perfectionist while dotting over me and the results were just as she described. I love looking at my glowing skin in the mirror and touching my face to feel how soft and smooth and lovely the texture is………amazing results & totally worth the investment!! You must meet Shantala and experience her treatments firsthand. Once you do, you will never go anywhere else!! P.S. Thank you Dr. Shanthala!

Very happy with results.
Coolscalpting helped to shape my body. Now my designer clothes fits me perfectly.
Ultherapy maintains my facelift that i had done 5years ago. It lifted my eye brow and shaped
to perfection my jaw line. Also the staff made me feel most comfortable and DR. Shanthala followed up with my progress.

Wonderful service

I went to Medspa & Laser center about three months ago for Coolsculpting of my abdominal area. At the time I was a bit nervous due to information I had received from others who had the procedure done at another establishment, I had also done a lot of research into Coolsculpting. I was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful service I received from Dr. Shanthala and her staff. I felt that Dr. Shanthala was very honest in what she could do for me; she really took the time to see what would be the best option. The process of Coolscultping was a bit uncomfortable but Dr. Shanthala walked me through the entire procedure, which helped with any anxiety I felt. After three months I’m happy to say I did see results, and I think that’s due to Dr. Shanthala. Any procedures I plan in the future will definitely be done at Medspa & Laser. Thank you Dr. Shanthala.

I have had 2 COOL SCULPTING TREATMENTS in the past week on areas of my lower abdomen that would not go away with diet and exercise. On the advice of my dear friend SHANTHALA I chose COOL SCULPTING a non surgical procedure using a controlled device to freeze and destroy fat cells. In the competent hands of SHANTHALA , in an environment of calm and serenity the procedure was performed. During the application of the device I felt pulling NO PAIN. I look forward to more treatments and expect s positive outcome,

Dr. Shanthala is truly someone special!

Dr. Shanthala is truly someone special! What an experience! Being in the industry, I’ve seen a lot. This was by far the most professional, caring, conscientious Dr. I’ve ever been to. From beginning to end, Dr. Shanthala is there to walk you through every step of the process. She does the consultations and the treatments herself. I appreciated the fact that she shared her philosophy on how she cares for her patients. She answered all my questions, and explained everything so thoroughly…and I never felt rushed!
I had had a previous consultation before and without critizing the other Dr., she explained why her options would be better for me and I agreed! And the treatment was overall way less expensive with Dr. Shanthala.
I am beyond thrilled, one week out from Coolsculpting and I look forward to my next treatment. (She very honestly told me I would need more than one, and I appreciated that.). She sets the bar as a top-notch Dr. in aesthetics.

Thank you Dr. Shanthala, I’ve been recommending you to all my friends and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Dr. Shanthala is very talented,

I found Shanthala MD Medspa & Laser Center online, and am beyond ecstatic I did. Dr. Shanthala is very talented, and I felt comfortable immediately after being in her calming presence. She takes time to hear out her patients concerns, and answered all my questions with very thorough explanations. Despite living quite far from the location, I will continue to return as I trust my face in Dr. Shanthala’s hands.
My results with Juvederm Ultra Plus are incredible! My desired results were fuller lips with a more defined Cupid’s bow, and Dr. Shanthala did just that. I have never felt more confident with my lips in my life, and I’ve gotten many compliments on them as a result.
I would highly recommend this procedure for anyone who wants fuller, yet natural lips.

Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does,

I have been going here for about a year now, I have acne prone skin and a lot of scaring, they were very honest as to what can be done for my scaring and acne. I do peels and microdermabrasion on the regular and my skin has never looked or felt better! Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does, she really believes in her work. Dorothy is also wonderful and does a great job with my peels and micro. I have a few clients that I sent to Dr Shanthala and they have done many different procedures such as Botox, fillers and lip augmentations and they all said amazing things!

Clear and brilliant laser – beautiful results!

I bought a package of clear and brilliant laser treatments. I’ve had three so far and I love it. I haven’t experienced any down time other than some redness but that is gone by the following day. The effect has been really beautiful. My skin is very clear and glowing. The best thing about Dr. Shanthala is that she always listens and understands what I consider my problem areas. She also guides me in the right direction and will tell me when a procedure doesn’t make sense. I love how honest and caring she is. Her and I are going to have a long relationship!

Worldclass

I was a beauty writer/editor for various magazines years ago including Vogue, Allure, etc. I’ve therefore had access to the best doctors, beauty treatments and beauty professionals in the world, from New York to Los Angeles to Miami to Paris to London and so on. Essentially, I was a guinea pig for everything trending in aesthetics for a very long time. When I recently moved/returned to the North Shore, I was convinced my days of sophisticated beauty treatments were over. And then I found Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa. Since I gave birth a year ago, she has helped me recover the youth and prettiness I was certain I’d lost forever in the hospital delivery room. She is the real deal. Again, I say this as someone who has had experience with truly the best. I see her monthly now for fun little nips and jabs and scrapes and removals and all manner of mechanical and laser applications and I trust her entirely with the fine tuning of both my face and body. She has more trendy and proven beauty technology in her spa then anyone in Boston, by far. And she has personally trained with all the legends in the business. I am a complete snob. I am not ashamed to admit this. Here, my snobbishness and extremely high standards and rare experience in this field, should lend some credibility to my opinion. She is one of a kind. I reluctantly share this review/my secret because she is such a diamond in the rough and my life would be better if she has less traffic in her office and could see me at my whim. (Which, in truth, she basically does. Me and, it seems, many of her beloved clients whom she cares for like a little girl does her most treasured and beautiful dolls.)

Thoughtful, comprehensive care that I’d drive hours for

Where to start…I chose Shanthala as my doctor due to the many positive reviews on realself. After moving from California, I was apprehensive finding a new doctor, but my fears were unnecessary. I drive two hours each way for my appointments, and I cannot imagine now seeing a doctor closer to me. My first meeting with Shanthala was almost two hours. She took so much time listening to my skincare concerns and needs. There was no hard sell, and she and I came up with a conservative approach to my needs. Her offices are clean, comfortable, and welcoming. It’s like a little spa break from my daily life. I am 44 (43 when I began treatments), and I have a fair amount of sun damage from my younger days, as well as volume loss due to aging. Shanthala recommended Bellafill for my temple areas, which are pretty sunken. I was thrilled with the results, and the process was easy with minimal bruising (no swelling at all). It is well past six months, and the area is still responding well to the filler. I’d highly recommend Bellafill. Although the initial cost is higher, it is worth the investment due to its longevity. I also had Restalayne for under eye hollows. I am interested in looking rested, not fake, so we err on the side of caution. Shanthala uses a cannula to place the fillers instead of a lot of needle pricks, which helps with more exact placement and control. It also causes less bruising and chance of infection or reaction. In the future, I would use more filler under my eyes, as I feel I could have used more. However, I’d rather add more later than wish I’d done less! Botox helps smooth out my forehead and frown lines, and she uses less than any doctor I’ve ever seen with better results. After a couple months, Shanthala and I decided to use the CO2 laser to deal with some lax skin and sun damage. The process is painful, I won’t lie. I have a high pain tolerance, another were points where I was almost in tears. I had light, medium, and deep treatment in different areas. My most painful areas were the temple, chin, and by the nose. I am grateful I had someone to drive me home, because I had a lot of discomfort for about 30 minutes after the treatment. However, the pain receded after that, and the only other discomfort I had was itching as the skin sloughs off. There is major downtime after a deep CO2 treatment. You will not be returning to work the day after. I was at home for four days following the treatment. My skin was red, swollen, and really unsightly once the peeling process began. The aftercare is key here. Every two hours, I rinsed with a light vinegar wash and covered my face with Aquaphor. I also used Alastin twice a day, as recommended by Shanthala. Since I live far away, we talked almost daily and FaceTime helped between my weekly follow-up visits. I felt like I could reach out with questions at any time. The comprehensive aftercare and her oversight helped my skin heal well ahead of what was estimated. By day five, I was back to my regular routine out of the house. The results after a month were amazing. My skin was firmer, dark spots gone, and it felt amazing. I am religious with sunscreen to maintain the results. Would I get another CO2 treatment? If I could block off the time for proper after care, I would do it in a year or so. I would consider some pain meds prior to the peel. I will definitely do more filler, as I have a thin face and not a lot of fat to maintain a youthful look. Shanthala is invested in her patient’s outcome and never once tried to upsell me for more services or products. She listened to where I want to go with my treatment and provides a path for me to get there. I look forward to continuing my relationship with her while I live in the Northeast. I cannot say enough positive things about her or her practice.

I had an amazing experience and results

I have had acne since I was 15 and my mom took me to a different place where I didn’t get any results I was just wasting money on things that weren’t working. 8 months ago my mom took me with her to one of her appointments with Dr. Shanthala and the minute that I walked through the door, she and her then assistant Vanessa were super attentive towards me and they assisted me right away telling me what the best way to treat my acne was. They were incredible nice and I had an amazing experience. I love it because I started to see results right away with the chemical pealings treatment. And every time I walked through those doors I feel really welcome and that I am being taken care and that they have my best interest at heart. Dr. Shanthala is super nice and I really like her.

I am thankful to be one of her patients!

Dr. Shanthala is by far the best doctor I’ve ever met! Acne scars is such a delicate and complicated problem that many struggle with. She is an expert in making her patients feel at ease and is deeply knowledgeable of the many different procedures available. Personally, i’ve struggled with acne since puberty which resulted in scars. I now have a combination of rolling/boxcar on both of my cheeks. Recently, Dr. Shanthala and I sat down and reevaluated my scars and decided on Microneedling RF . I had virtually no downtime with this procedure. I will update my results after I complete 3 treatments. I am so thankful to be one of her patients and I am happy to see her each visit. She is very kind and hardworking and wants to see her patients happy.

I cleared out my skin from the acne and acne’ scares

I will give my honest experience at Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa, MD clinic I have been going to Dr. Shanthala clinic now for 6 months and she has changed my skin. I started getting acnes when I was 19. I have used in the past a lot of medications and treatments to get rid of acne (I am 26 now) and nothing has worked for me; I gave up on having clear skin and I reached to a point to live with my acne and my scars. I started using makeup to hide them and I couldn’t go to any place without foundation on my face!!. in September 2016, I found Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa, MD clinic; I read a lot of good reviews and I decided to try different treatments. In the consultation, we sat together talking about acne’s causes and she was so clear with me that I have to collaborate as well in order to achieve a good result. She took her time explaining all the causes and the current used technologies to treat acne. We decided to find the cause that trigger the acne by eliminating dairy, junk food and fried food. She also recommended me to use benzoyl peroxide, cleanser and from Obagi. I used the medications for less than three months and I stopped getting acne. The cause ended up to be dairy! I transitioned to dairy free (which is hard but so worth it). Also, I started eating cleaner and healthier food. I was so happy that I stopped getting new pimples. I also stopped using makeup in daily bases. After that, we started the treatments to get rid of the acne scars and the redness. I have done chemical peeling, PRP + Micro-needling, subcision+ RF Micro-needling (my skin loved this treatment), Snail slim micro-needling. Now after 6 months, my skin looks so good without makeup and I am so happy that I found Dr. Shanthala clinic. Also, as a person, she is wonderful person. She is so honest with you and her goal is to see her patients happy. If you want a treatment and Dr. Shanthala knows the treatment will not work for you, she will tell you it will not work for you and it will be waste of money. She is also so generous, I always leave her clinic with some samples to use at home. I highly recommend Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa, MD clinic and please put in your mind that having a clear, bright skin is a long journey. You need to be patient and collaborate with the Dr, otherwise you will waste your money.

She is BRILLIANT!

She is awesome. She takes her time to listen to your concerns. She treats you like a friend and honestly cares about your issues. I’ve been getting treatment for acne scarring and I’ve seen over 10 doctors. Under Dr. Shanthala’s care, I have seen the most improvement.

Great experience always thankful

She is amazing, patient kind and gentle. I had some serious scaring do to acne and life and she helped me first control my acne then working on my scars. She was honest with me and never led me in a direction that was more costly with no results. I was able to wear an open back sleeveless gown for my wedding and I’m forever thankful to her for that. She also does a wide variety of services that people love!

A master– the best there is.

Sometimes you come across a physician who does more than just “what you asked for”. Sometimes you come across a physician who truly listens to you, PAYS real attention, and actually cares. Dr Shanthala is not only a genius at what she does, she is a caring and kind professional who I not only respect but who I look forward to seeing and talking with. Sometimes you come across a physician who is one in a million. And that has been my experience with Dr Shanthala.

A pleasurable experience

The location is nice and there is plenty of parking. Once inside it is a very peaceful and relaxing environment. I have done two micro-needling sessions here I was amazed at the results after the first time. My main concern was with my acne scars and the hyper pigmentation that came along with them. My acne scars have improved just after one time, red pigment faded significantly. I have had hyper-pigmentation for over ten years after my severe acne (cystic) went away this is the only thing that has worked for that. The texture of my skin has improved everywhere, my concern was with acne scars but was very happy when my pores reduced in size and my complexion improved everywhere on my face. The micro-needling didn’t hurt it ticked a little bit because of the numbing cream. The second appointment I did Micro-needling with subcision. The subcision there was very little pain , barely anything to complain about. I saw very good results from subcision right away. I recovered fast my face was red for a day, the next day slightly pink and 90% clear on 3rd day on the 4th was completely clear (I wanted the deepest microneedling 2.5mm). With my time at the consultation, and with the doctor on both appointments I never felt like I was being rushed. I had a pleasurable experience and the time spent there I was taken care of, no complaints. Dr. Shanthala listened to what I wanted to do and then did it, very professional aside from being a medical professional she is very nice and caring, talking to me over the phone post op and looking at my skin after in person. The patient coordinator, Maciel is very friendly and knowledgeable, it was easy to book an appointment and, in my experience whenever I called she or Dr. Shanthala answered and helped me. Dorothy did my consultation and it was in depth, I learned a lot about how to take care of my skin from her and Dr. Shanthala. Thank you.

Visiting Dr. Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best thing

Visiting Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best  thing I have done for my self in years. I have tried several medspa type businesses in the past. They were  all good, but often they did not stay on top of the latest, safest and best procedures. None of these medspas had the expertise of   Shanthala. They also were  more about volume of clients, where Shanthala is all about doing what is best, for you , her most important client of the moment. You feel this attitude.. Her approach and consultation are also comfortable for the client, honest detailed information , no high pressure tactics. She is constantly training and attending  conferences and classes. She in compassionate, highly intelligent, has a wonderful bedside manner, and a great sense of humor. She holds herself to the highest  standards. The environment is meticulous, and so inviting. She is informative, affable and professional. My skin looks great and I had a wonderful time visiting her office . I had a micro needling procedure. A week later my  skin looks so beautiful. I have already called to book another appointment. I live closer to Boston, but the skills, service and experience of visiting Shanthala are better, than those offered in  areas more convenient to my home.
Oh, I also stopped for an  amazing crepe  at New Art of Gelato, after my visit to Shanthala. What a perfect day. This gelato and crepe place is less than 5 minutes from Shanthala, and the food was delicious. I had a spinach tomato and goat cheese crepe, and  freshly made blueberry gelato . My trip to Peabody was completely worth the drive. I also had very little traffic,as I booked my appointment on a Saturday morning.  I am so happy I made the effort to visit Shanthala. My entire experience was positive. the trip to Peabody is also very easy , and her office is just off an exit.

Amazing!!!!

My mom has always said, “you get what you pay for.” So if you’re looking for a cheap and quick fix, then keep looking. When it comes to my health and beauty regime, I’ve done my research, and Dr. Shanthala is well worth the price to pay. Well versed in her practice and being completely in tune to my needs, you are sure to step into the hands of someone who listens and honestly recommends according to your current needs. I’ve felt every purchase of treatment I’ve made, well worth the time and price with Shanthala; she will not sell you on something you don’t need. This is not a medspa factory, and you are not a medical record number. Consider yourself a lifetime investment, because that is what Shanthala is about; you will not find a more individualized, passionate, and approachable Doctor around.

Dr. Shanthala is awesome!

Shanthala is awesome!  Not only is she an MD but she is caring and gracious.  She makes sure that you understand all treatment options and recommends what is best for you.  I initially went to one of the franchises and it was very sales oriented with junior staff as the primary people you interact with.  You will have the totally opposite experience with Shanthala AND the treatments really work!  She cares from the minute you walk into her medspa, throughout the entire treatment and after.  It amazes me that she has such fantastic bedside manner, as I have not experienced that very often with many doctors.  Don’t waste your time going anywhere else!

She is truly a remarkable person and professional

I originally went to Dr Shivananjappa’s office after reading all of the reviews from acne patients as I have been struggling with adult acne.  The first time I called the office to make an appt. she actually got on the phone with me as I explained my issues and asked many questions about previous remedies and procedures I had tried over the years.  She spent almost an hour on the phone with me and was so personable yet very professional sharing with me what was possible and what may not be, etc.  I was very impressed with her after meeting for my first appointment and ended up staying after it chatting with her for over 45 mins about other things (like pets!).  She is a very warm yet professional person that made me feel at ease.  I actually ended up going back for a coolsculpt procedure and I simply cannot say enough about this wonderful person as well as how pleased I am with my results.  I’m lucky I live very close to her office but I would encourage anyone considering a procedure to go with Dr Shivananjappa even if you have to drive far!  I have never had such a personable experience with ANY doctor I have ever visited for anything.  She is truly a remarkable person and professional that truly cares about her patients.  Two thumbs up, 5 stars and my gratitude for the treatments she performed that have had such a positive effect on me.

I really appreciate everything Doctor Shanthala has done for me.

My experience with Dr Shanthala has been unlike  any other doctor experience I’ve had prior. Dr Shanthala spent over one hour with me in my initial consultation. She helped educate me about how the acne scars were formed and how different treatments can help with the scars. She is very understanding as this is a sensitive subject for me. Also very comforting when I was brought to tears after talking about my struggle! she even stayed late and did my first treatment the same night as my consultation because she truly cares and didn’t want me to be sad anymore! We came up with a plan that works for me and my type of acne scars (mostly rolling mixed with some other types) . I am only on my second month of treatment but I trust the doctor and our plan. We are trying subcision mixed with other treatments to treat the look of the scars. When we get to a certain point where I am satisfied then we will include bellafill for volume.

Overall, it’s important to trust your doctor and the plan.  You should do your research but let her do her job and don’t try and go there and be the doctor. DR. Shanthala has helped me  learn  that the treatment of acne scars will take time. I still have a long road ahead but I am already starting to feel more confident and care less about my acne scars because I know I am treating them.
I really appreciate everything Doctor Shanthala has done for me. She is very respectful , easy to talk to, caring, and a great listener. She really wants to help you. Since it’s her business she can take the time to treat you and come up with a plan that you feel comfortable with and that’s right for your type of acne scars!

Of note, I have previously tried non-ablative Fraxel Laser treatments suggested by a cosmetic dermatologist at a major hospital in Boston and was disappointed when there was no significant difference after the three recommended  treatments.

I hope this review helps at least one person that’s struggling with acne scars like me!

Her clinic is so pretty and she is so friendly

I found doctor Shanthala MD spa clinic while browsing on Yelp.
I got surprised when I found that all the patients are happy. I didn’t hesitate to call her right away and schedule a consultation with her. Her clinic is so pretty and she is so friendly and knowledgeable person. My issue is adult acne. I have been suffering from acne and acne for 5 years now (I am 26 now) and it was bothering me so much. I tried so much medicines and treatments before but none of them worked (they make it worse). Dr. Shanthala talked to me in details about how to take care of my skin and how to understand its need. She gave me some products to use and she advised me to cut dairy from my routine. We both worked together and we were able to control my acne. Acne issues are so hard to solve and the patient should follow the rules. I cleaned my diet from dairy (which I found it hard at the beginning to live without cheese), added more water, green tea, vitamins, and chamomile tea, and stopped covering the acne and the scars with foundation or BB creams (I used to wear makeup daily to cover the acne and the scars). Also, I am trying to control stress by meditation.  After finding the acne trigger (dairy) controlling the acne, we started clearing the skin from the scars. I had two treatments so far, one was PRP with micro-needling and the other one was subcision with RF micro-needling.  I have been visiting Dr. Shanthala now for two months and I am loving the result so far.  She cares about her patients a lot and she wants them to feel apply and satisfied. I highly recommend her.

Thank you again it has been amazing

I am writing this review for all the men that do not believe that aging and skin care is as important as watching football or hanging in the man cave. Dr, Shanthala has been helping me with acne scars and aging skin with sun damage, she has also performed two cool sculpting procedures. It is are to find someone as genuinely honest with the focus on trying to grow her business with satisfied patients with sacrificing cost. I am amazed at how comfortable i was made to feel by her form the moment I walked in, she is a true testament to how business should be done in this day in age. I think people loose sight of the fact that it is about building relationships not always about getting the most money out of your patients. Many others in this field should take a good look at her business model in due time it she will become very successful and deservedly so.

thank you again it has been amazing

Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does,

I have been going here for about a year now, I have acne prone skin and a lot of scaring, they were very honest as to what can be done for my scaring and acne. I do peels and microdermabrasion on the regular and my skin has never looked or felt better! Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does, she really believes in her work. Dorothy is also wonderful and does a great job with my peels and micro. I have a few clients that I sent to Dr Shanthala and they have done many different procedures such as Botox, fillers and lip augmentations and they all said amazing things!

Worldclass

I was a beauty writer/editor for various magazines years ago including Vogue, Allure, etc. I’ve therefore had access to the best doctors, beauty treatments and beauty professionals in the world, from New York to Los Angeles to Miami to Paris to London and so on. Essentially, I was a guinea pig for everything trending in aesthetics for a very long time. When I recently moved/returned to the North Shore, I was convinced my days of sophisticated beauty treatments were over. And then I found Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa. Since I gave birth a year ago, she has helped me recover the youth and prettiness I was certain I’d lost forever in the hospital delivery room. She is the real deal. Again, I say this as someone who has had experience with truly the best. I see her monthly now for fun little nips and jabs and scrapes and removals and all manner of mechanical and laser applications and I trust her entirely with the fine tuning of both my face and body. She has more trendy and proven beauty technology in her spa then anyone in Boston, by far. And she has personally trained with all the legends in the business. I am a complete snob. I am not ashamed to admit this. Here, my snobbishness and extremely high standards and rare experience in this field, should lend some credibility to my opinion. She is one of a kind. I reluctantly share this review/my secret because she is such a diamond in the rough and my life would be better if she has less traffic in her office and could see me at my whim. (Which, in truth, she basically does. Me and, it seems, many of her beloved clients whom she cares for like a little girl does her most treasured and beautiful dolls.)

Great Results With Juvederm Ultra Plus

I wanted to increase the volume of my lips and create a more defined Cupid’s bow. I had amazing results with juvederm ultra plus lip fillers. My lips are much more plump, full and shiny as I stay hydrated and exfoliate my lips often. Dr Shanthala is very talented!! I’m very happy with my results and will continue to return for maintenance!

Thoughtful, comprehensive care that I’d drive hours for

Where to start…I chose Shanthala as my doctor due to the many positive reviews on realself. After moving from California, I was apprehensive finding a new doctor, but my fears were unnecessary. I drive two hours each way for my appointments, and I cannot imagine now seeing a doctor closer to me. My first meeting with Shanthala was almost two hours. She took so much time listening to my skincare concerns and needs. There was no hard sell, and she and I came up with a conservative approach to my needs. Her offices are clean, comfortable, and welcoming. It’s like a little spa break from my daily life. I am 44 (43 when I began treatments), and I have a fair amount of sun damage from my younger days, as well as volume loss due to aging. Shanthala recommended Bellafill for my temple areas, which are pretty sunken. I was thrilled with the results, and the process was easy with minimal bruising (no swelling at all). It is well past six months, and the area is still responding well to the filler. I’d highly recommend Bellafill. Although the initial cost is higher, it is worth the investment due to its longevity. I also had Restalayne for under eye hollows. I am interested in looking rested, not fake, so we err on the side of caution. Shanthala uses a cannula to place the fillers instead of a lot of needle pricks, which helps with more exact placement and control. It also causes less bruising and chance of infection or reaction. In the future, I would use more filler under my eyes, as I feel I could have used more. However, I’d rather add more later than wish I’d done less! Botox helps smooth out my forehead and frown lines, and she uses less than any doctor I’ve ever seen with better results. After a couple months, Shanthala and I decided to use the CO2 laser to deal with some lax skin and sun damage. The process is painful, I won’t lie. I have a high pain tolerance, another were points where I was almost in tears. I had light, medium, and deep treatment in different areas. My most painful areas were the temple, chin, and by the nose. I am grateful I had someone to drive me home, because I had a lot of discomfort for about 30 minutes after the treatment. However, the pain receded after that, and the only other discomfort I had was itching as the skin sloughs off. There is major downtime after a deep CO2 treatment. You will not be returning to work the day after. I was at home for four days following the treatment. My skin was red, swollen, and really unsightly once the peeling process began. The aftercare is key here. Every two hours, I rinsed with a light vinegar wash and covered my face with Aquaphor. I also used Alastin twice a day, as recommended by Shanthala. Since I live far away, we talked almost daily and FaceTime helped between my weekly follow-up visits. I felt like I could reach out with questions at any time. The comprehensive aftercare and her oversight helped my skin heal well ahead of what was estimated. By day five, I was back to my regular routine out of the house. The results after a month were amazing. My skin was firmer, dark spots gone, and it felt amazing. I am religious with sunscreen to maintain the results. Would I get another CO2 treatment? If I could block off the time for proper after care, I would do it in a year or so. I would consider some pain meds prior to the peel. I will definitely do more filler, as I have a thin face and not a lot of fat to maintain a youthful look. Shanthala is invested in her patient’s outcome and never once tried to upsell me for more services or products. She listened to where I want to go with my treatment and provides a path for me to get there. I look forward to continuing my relationship with her while I live in the Northeast. I cannot say enough positive things about her or her practice.

THANK YOU SO MUCH DR. SHANTHALA!!!!

I first walked into Dr. Shanthala’s Med Spa for a demonstration over a year ago. I left to” think about it”.
I had had injectables in the past and the procedure was not always pleasant and the results not always so good either. However, as the year passed and the more I looked in the mirror, the more I knew I wanted to do something, and boy am I glad I did.
The consultation with Dr. Shanthala put me right at ease, she was patient and informative. She explained everything in detail and she made knowledgeable recommendations. We decided to go with a combination of modified Ultherapy and Bellafill. And I just LOVE the results. Her technique was so different than the other physician’s technique, albeit more time consuming. She actually disperses the product throughout the area of need rather than in just one spot. She actually gave me CHEEKBONES!!!
Let me also add that her place is meticulous, warm and inviting. She really cares about each of her patients. She called me the next day to see how I was feeling and then asked me to come by a week later to see how I looked! She is such a warm, caring human being, I am so happy and proud to be her patient and am looking forward to my my next treatment which will be a combination of Kybella injections and modified Ultherapy to my neck region for even more great results and an even more youthful me, guided by her skilled hands. After all who doesn’t want to grow younger?? THANK YOU SO MUCH DR. SHANTHALA!!!! You are amazing. I am so glad I found YOU.

Dr. Shanthala is the first Doctor to help erase my acne scars with Bellafill.

I am over the moon happy with my results. Dr. Shanthala is the first Doctor to help erase my acne scars. After changing products and having micro needling with PRP she recommended Bellafill. I am so happy with the appearance and smoothness of my skin after Bellafill. I feel like a new person and owe that to Dr. Shanthala and Bellafill.

I met with Doctor Shanthala who suggested Botox for my forehead

I was turning 60 in May , I had sagging skin ,and wrinkles on my forehead and around my lips . I really was not happy at all with my appearance. I met with Doctor Shanthala who suggested Botox for my forehead , and for the rest of my face, BellafilI received 5 units. My swelling was minimal,and about 5 days later, I looked refreshed. My changes were just enough. The best compliment I got was someone at my office ,who I see everyday ,said I love the way you are getting your eyebrows done now . I am very happy with my decision ,and the doctor I chose !

I heard about Dr. Shanthala’s practice. From my first consultation, I trusted

After many failed procedures to help with facial scars after an accident and many disappointing expensive results later, I heard about Dr. Shanthala’s practice. From my first consultation, I trusted I was in the best hands possible, she explained the ‘science’ behind the Bellafil treatment and why it would work for me. Not only was the Dr. Shanthala compassionate, but she was confident in her ability to help me improve my appearance. Dr. Shanthala recommended Bellafill to help reshape and ‘fill’ the areas that caused the distortions without having to undergo surgery. I can honestly say that I never expected to feel restored to the way I once looked. Now I look natural, smooth and most of all, my scars are significantly improved. Dr. Shanthala called me every day for a week and had me come to her office to make sure all was well. I believe she aspires to treat each patient as she would a member of her own family. I am truly grateful to her for so much, but most of all for giving me back confidence.

Dr Shanthala recommended using Bellafill for a few

Dr Shanthala recommended using Bellafill for a few areas on my face. I had botox but, as you may know, botox treatment is different than filler. The filler really made a difference in areas of my face which had lost volume. I highly recommend this easy procedure!! The process was quick and easy; Dr. S does all of the work herself. She is an MD which is highly unusual with other Med Spas.

A different league for this area

What this doctor reminds me of is something one only usually finds on the west coast. I have had countless treatments. You have the ability to forge an ongoing relationship and truly make changes that she is interested in, every bit as much as you are. You can go to her quite often and get evaluated from head to toe and take steps to partner up with her to make those changes. She doesn’t sell you something she doesn’t believe in. I can’t say enough about her that’s good. If you haven’t tried clear and brilliant do so! Make sure you pick the right doctor though!

A master– the best there is.

Sometimes you come across a physician who does more than just “what you asked for”. Sometimes you come across a physician who truly listens to you, PAYS real attention, and actually cares. Dr Shanthala is not only a genius at what she does, she is a caring and kind professional who I not only respect but who I look forward to seeing and talking with. Sometimes you come across a physician who is one in a million. And that has been my experience with Dr Shanthala.

No Sausage Lips here!

I have been searching for a doctor with the aesthetic I have been looking for when it comes to lip injections. Didn’t want the duck lips, or sausage lips, just something more full, but natural, that works with the symmetry of my face. I needed to find someone who was an artist, someone who has the knowledge when it comes to the anatomy of the face, and understands what works for one doesn’t always work for another. I desired somewhat of a perfectionist like myself. Thought I would never find what I was looking for but I certainly did! Dr. S LISTENED to my needs, she didn’t try to talk me into something I wouldn’t want (matter of fact she talked me out of something else I wanted) I respect her professional opinion and the fact that she said that I didn’t “need” something speaks to her integrity, heart and love for her profession and her clients. In a world filled with too much fillers, she believes in “less is more”. Im not surprised she has so many 5 star reviews. I felt comfortable, she’s funny and easy to talk to! Dr.S is very informative and answered all questions I had. Her staff is kind and polite, they called me 2 days after to see how I was doing and also to let me know that if I had any questions I could call the Dr. I could go on and on about such an amazing woman with such talent and grace. What a wonderful experience, book with Dr. S and see for yourself. YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!!

Skin Tightening – Yes Please!

The staff at ShanthalaMD is by far the friendliest and most inviting individuals I have met in a medical setting. They make you feel right at home as soon as you walk in. I’m always greeted with a warm smile, offered tea or coffee, etc.
The skin tightening is very effective but you do have to commit to weekly treatments for a short period to see results! Absolutely worth it. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to really improve the appearance of their skin. I decided to get skin tightening treatments for my body. I exercise regularly and eat well but I wanted to further contour my figure.
Aesthetics are very important to me and this is just one of the many options offered to me for my needs.

Visiting Dr. Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best thing

Visiting Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best  thing I have done for my self in years. I have tried several medspa type businesses in the past. They were  all good, but often they did not stay on top of the latest, safest and best procedures. None of these medspas had the expertise of   Shanthala. They also were  more about volume of clients, where Shanthala is all about doing what is best, for you , her most important client of the moment. You feel this attitude.. Her approach and consultation are also comfortable for the client, honest detailed information , no high pressure tactics. She is constantly training and attending  conferences and classes. She in compassionate, highly intelligent, has a wonderful bedside manner, and a great sense of humor. She holds herself to the highest  standards. The environment is meticulous, and so inviting. She is informative, affable and professional. My skin looks great and I had a wonderful time visiting her office . I had a micro needling procedure. A week later my  skin looks so beautiful. I have already called to book another appointment. I live closer to Boston, but the skills, service and experience of visiting Shanthala are better, than those offered in  areas more convenient to my home.
Oh, I also stopped for an  amazing crepe  at New Art of Gelato, after my visit to Shanthala. What a perfect day. This gelato and crepe place is less than 5 minutes from Shanthala, and the food was delicious. I had a spinach tomato and goat cheese crepe, and  freshly made blueberry gelato . My trip to Peabody was completely worth the drive. I also had very little traffic,as I booked my appointment on a Saturday morning.  I am so happy I made the effort to visit Shanthala. My entire experience was positive. the trip to Peabody is also very easy , and her office is just off an exit.

Amazing!!!!

My mom has always said, “you get what you pay for.” So if you’re looking for a cheap and quick fix, then keep looking. When it comes to my health and beauty regime, I’ve done my research, and Dr. Shanthala is well worth the price to pay. Well versed in her practice and being completely in tune to my needs, you are sure to step into the hands of someone who listens and honestly recommends according to your current needs. I’ve felt every purchase of treatment I’ve made, well worth the time and price with Shanthala; she will not sell you on something you don’t need. This is not a medspa factory, and you are not a medical record number. Consider yourself a lifetime investment, because that is what Shanthala is about; you will not find a more individualized, passionate, and approachable Doctor around.

Dr. Shanthala is awesome!

Shanthala is awesome!  Not only is she an MD but she is caring and gracious.  She makes sure that you understand all treatment options and recommends what is best for you.  I initially went to one of the franchises and it was very sales oriented with junior staff as the primary people you interact with.  You will have the totally opposite experience with Shanthala AND the treatments really work!  She cares from the minute you walk into her medspa, throughout the entire treatment and after.  It amazes me that she has such fantastic bedside manner, as I have not experienced that very often with many doctors.  Don’t waste your time going anywhere else!

Thank you Dr. Shanthala,

I don’t usually write reviews but I just had to now. About 8 months ago, I got a facial filler done at a doctors office like I usually do a couple of times a year. This time though, something went terribly wrong. I’m not sure the what the medical term is for what happened to me, but it seems that the filler was injected into a blood vessel. What followed was horrible. Immediately, the left side of my face went numb and I developed a terrible infection that caused a horrible lesion, and my face to swell and look deformed. I temporarily lost my eye sight in my left eye and was in a lot of pain. I was scared and confused and seeked some answers or even help from the doctor that performed the treatment. To make a long story short, I called the office 5 times before the doctor called me back, only to tell me that I’ll be fine and to take some Advil. After 8 months, I still have numbness in my face and a scar from the lesion. I finally decided to consult Dr, Shanathala and get her opinion on whether I would ever be able to do anything to my face again. Call me crazy after what I went through, but at the end of the day, I am still a woman and aging concerns me like all of us. From the moment I walked in to her office, I felt the warmth and calm that she put out. She explained to me what happened to me and let me decide if I wanted to take things slow.
I wanted her to do a little filler again, so after 45 minutes of her explaining everything to me, she did, even though I was terrified, and I was thrilled with the results, and I got the courage to do things to my face again with her help.
Thank you Dr. Shanthala,
For being a human being, for showing compassion, for being a professional, for listening, for being amazing at your job, for loving what you do, and loving your patients,for not cutting corners, for being patient and all around for being a beautiful person.

Very talented

I have been wanting to have some procedures done to help with lines, wrinkles & sagging skin but had no idea what the best options were for me. I felt confused and honestly a little scared to move forward. That is until I met Shanthala. She took the time to explain the benefits of each type of procedure as well as the long and short term results. After my initial consultation I left feeling informed and confident that I had come to the right place. I am not one to make decisions quickly and took my time to schedule my session for Ultherapy and Bellafill. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I highly recommend Shanthala she’s honest, caring and will very talented at what she does. You will not be disappointed.

I have visited Dr. Shanthala on many occasions, and she has always been nothing but professional, educational, and an artist of her craft. Today I had a hydra facial and it was absolutely amazing. My dry, unkept winter skin is now incredibly soft, clean and moisturized. I will be revisiting this treatment monthly. I would highly recommend her office for your skin care needs.

I had no pain or bruising with my fillers

This was my first experience with having Botox and filler’s It was a personal decision that I made for myself.  Dr Shanthala made me feel so comfortable and validated what I was feeling when I looked at myself in the mirror.  She was not only acting as a Physician about to do a procedure but she also educated me as to what I was looking for and why. She also told me what I can do on my own to continue to achieve the look that I wanted. The experience itself was amazing I had no pain and no bruising.  I am so pleased with the results that I always have a smile on my face.  A smile is not because I’m happy with how I look like on the outside but rather how I am feeling on the inside thanks to Dr. Shanthala.

Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does,

I have been going here for about a year now, I have acne prone skin and a lot of scaring, they were very honest as to what can be done for my scaring and acne. I do peels and microdermabrasion on the regular and my skin has never looked or felt better! Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does, she really believes in her work. Dorothy is also wonderful and does a great job with my peels and micro. I have a few clients that I sent to Dr Shanthala and they have done many different procedures such as Botox, fillers and lip augmentations and they all said amazing things!

One word sums up my experience with Dr. Shanthala – AMAZING!  She is thoughtful, patient and took time to answer my many questions.  I initially went to her for botox but after spending over an hour with me and helping me to understand what I really wanted WE decided to do Kybella.  I have always been self conscious of my chins :).  I have had two treatments and the results are amazing!  I am so grateful that I found Dr. Shanthala and will not go to another doctor.  Thank you for helping me be my best!  You’re the best!

Amazing results beyond my expectations

Excellent with positive results! Dr. Shanthala took her time to explain all of my options and the results were noticeable in about two weeks from my Botox injections. Her office also made a follow-up phone call after my appointment to check on me which had not happened with the another doctor’s office I had visited. Such a warm atmosphere it just makes you feel so comfortable. I would recommned this Medspa to family and firends.

I can not say more positive things about Dr. Shanthala and her staff. Dr. Shanthalas amazing bedside manner, expert technique, education and ability to listen makes her results exactly what you envisioned. She goes above and beyond to make sure your results are breathtaking. I have been a patient of hers for over a year and every experience is undoubtedly delightful (its insane that she can make needles a “delightful” experience). If you are looking for the perfect place for your first time Botox treatment or looking for more attention to details this is where you need to be. I would recommend Shanthala MD Medspa and Laser Center to anyone who wants amazing results.

I have been a patient of Dr. Shanthala for the past two years. Each visit has been even better than the last. Dr. Shanthala’s office is beautiful and a wonderful environment for each treatment. Dr. Shanthala has always provided the most expert advice on options and her skills with treatments is amazing. I have been incredibly pleased with the results. With each treatment (facials, injections, etc.) I have felt that the results looked completely natural and that my skin’s appearance was improved. I recommend Dr. Shanthala completely.

Kybella has sharpened my jaw line and my profile looks great.

I’m a 48 yr old women with concerns with my double chin that has been getting worse as I age. I discussed Kybella with Dr. Shanthala and felt very comfortable after our discussion. I had a total of three sessions over a 8 month period. There is swelling involved after the procedure and mild bruising but they only last about a week. Overall I am very happy with the outcome, I feel it has sharpened my jaw line and my profile looks great. In regard to Dr. Shanthala I think she is wonderful, she takes the time to discuss what options are available and I’ve always felt that she has my best interest in mind. I’ve also had fillers and botox with Dr. Shanthala, both worked great. The fillers really opened my eyes up, many people noticed the change, said I looked fresher. Thank you Dr. Shanthala for everything you have done for me. jeanelle

Worldclass

I was a beauty writer/editor for various magazines years ago including Vogue, Allure, etc. I’ve therefore had access to the best doctors, beauty treatments and beauty professionals in the world, from New York to Los Angeles to Miami to Paris to London and so on. Essentially, I was a guinea pig for everything trending in aesthetics for a very long time. When I recently moved/returned to the North Shore, I was convinced my days of sophisticated beauty treatments were over. And then I found Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa. Since I gave birth a year ago, she has helped me recover the youth and prettiness I was certain I’d lost forever in the hospital delivery room. She is the real deal. Again, I say this as someone who has had experience with truly the best. I see her monthly now for fun little nips and jabs and scrapes and removals and all manner of mechanical and laser applications and I trust her entirely with the fine tuning of both my face and body. She has more trendy and proven beauty technology in her spa then anyone in Boston, by far. And she has personally trained with all the legends in the business. I am a complete snob. I am not ashamed to admit this. Here, my snobbishness and extremely high standards and rare experience in this field, should lend some credibility to my opinion. She is one of a kind. I reluctantly share this review/my secret because she is such a diamond in the rough and my life would be better if she has less traffic in her office and could see me at my whim. (Which, in truth, she basically does. Me and, it seems, many of her beloved clients whom she cares for like a little girl does her most treasured and beautiful dolls.)

You feel like you’re her only patient!

I had never had anything done before, and I wanted to look natural and “refreshed,” not like I’d had anything done. I also wanted a doctor to do any procedure. I had Botox, Restalyne, and CoolSculpting done. I just had CoolSculpting done a week ago, so I’m waiting for results, but the Botox and Restalyne (with some PRP) was amazing. Dr. Shanthala and her staff are so warm, welcoming, and professional. I was never rushed, and everyone made an effort to get to know me. Dr. Shanthala really tailors each procedure to her client–there are so many options!–and she was thoughtful about what I needed–and what I didn’t–and was so comforting. She immediately put me at ease. You feel like you’re her only patient!

Thoughtful, comprehensive care that I’d drive hours for

Where to start…I chose Shanthala as my doctor due to the many positive reviews on realself. After moving from California, I was apprehensive finding a new doctor, but my fears were unnecessary. I drive two hours each way for my appointments, and I cannot imagine now seeing a doctor closer to me. My first meeting with Shanthala was almost two hours. She took so much time listening to my skincare concerns and needs. There was no hard sell, and she and I came up with a conservative approach to my needs. Her offices are clean, comfortable, and welcoming. It’s like a little spa break from my daily life. I am 44 (43 when I began treatments), and I have a fair amount of sun damage from my younger days, as well as volume loss due to aging. Shanthala recommended Bellafill for my temple areas, which are pretty sunken. I was thrilled with the results, and the process was easy with minimal bruising (no swelling at all). It is well past six months, and the area is still responding well to the filler. I’d highly recommend Bellafill. Although the initial cost is higher, it is worth the investment due to its longevity. I also had Restalayne for under eye hollows. I am interested in looking rested, not fake, so we err on the side of caution. Shanthala uses a cannula to place the fillers instead of a lot of needle pricks, which helps with more exact placement and control. It also causes less bruising and chance of infection or reaction. In the future, I would use more filler under my eyes, as I feel I could have used more. However, I’d rather add more later than wish I’d done less! Botox helps smooth out my forehead and frown lines, and she uses less than any doctor I’ve ever seen with better results. After a couple months, Shanthala and I decided to use the CO2 laser to deal with some lax skin and sun damage. The process is painful, I won’t lie. I have a high pain tolerance, another were points where I was almost in tears. I had light, medium, and deep treatment in different areas. My most painful areas were the temple, chin, and by the nose. I am grateful I had someone to drive me home, because I had a lot of discomfort for about 30 minutes after the treatment. However, the pain receded after that, and the only other discomfort I had was itching as the skin sloughs off. There is major downtime after a deep CO2 treatment. You will not be returning to work the day after. I was at home for four days following the treatment. My skin was red, swollen, and really unsightly once the peeling process began. The aftercare is key here. Every two hours, I rinsed with a light vinegar wash and covered my face with Aquaphor. I also used Alastin twice a day, as recommended by Shanthala. Since I live far away, we talked almost daily and FaceTime helped between my weekly follow-up visits. I felt like I could reach out with questions at any time. The comprehensive aftercare and her oversight helped my skin heal well ahead of what was estimated. By day five, I was back to my regular routine out of the house. The results after a month were amazing. My skin was firmer, dark spots gone, and it felt amazing. I am religious with sunscreen to maintain the results. Would I get another CO2 treatment? If I could block off the time for proper after care, I would do it in a year or so. I would consider some pain meds prior to the peel. I will definitely do more filler, as I have a thin face and not a lot of fat to maintain a youthful look. Shanthala is invested in her patient’s outcome and never once tried to upsell me for more services or products. She listened to where I want to go with my treatment and provides a path for me to get there. I look forward to continuing my relationship with her while I live in the Northeast. I cannot say enough positive things about her or her practice.

I’ve always been taking a good care of my skin but lately felt that a little more was needed.

My cheeks started looking hollow and saggy and that “11” mark between my eyebrows drove me insane. But I still wanted to look natural, not made up and didn’t want anyone confusing me with my daughter’s sister.
I came to see Dr. Shanthala, and a few minutes into our first meeting felt very comfortable with her. She totally understood what I need and suggested the best solution. I ended up doing a very small dose of Botox between my eyebrows, and a combo of PRP and Restalyne to fill the hollow areas. Omg!!! The result was amazing! Exactly what I needed! No bruises, no adverse reactions -nothing! Just a healthy natural glow 😉 I couldn’t be happier! Thank you so much, Dr. Shanthala!

Excellent correction of horribly deformed post surgical eye hollows by Dr. Shanthala

Dr. Shantala used Retylane to smooth out the hollows under my eyes. I previously had unsuccessful cosmetic tear trough surgery that left me horribly deformed. I had corrective surgery that allowed me to go out in pubic again, but there was much need for improvement. My ocular surgeon asked me not to get fillers, fearing I would mess up his work. Nonetheless, after having had several successful procedures with Dr. Shanthala (Botox, Ultherapy and CoolSculpt), I trusted that she could help me and would not have agreed to do something that was risky or beyond her expertise. I made the leap of faith and had the Restylane injection and I am thrilled I did. My under eye area is now fully restored to normal. Because she is a physician and has that deep understanding of anatomy, Dr. Shanthala is really a pro at using fillers. Rather than injecting the filler with needles, she uses a tiny cannula that she passes between tissues. It is slower, methodical, less painful, no bruising or bleeding as she is not breaking through tissue. It’s amazing and the results are spectacular. BTW, I also had great results with CoolSculpt to my mid section (no more muffin top) and an Ultherapy treatment that fixed the sagging skin on my neck and jowl line (which had previously been treated at a spa with an RF device that was time consuming, expensive and did very little to correct the problem). Dr. Shanthala is also a very warm person who really listens to you and will spend all the time with you that you need. Never rushed, very attentive.

Microneedling Series & Botox with Dr. Shantala

I had a series of 6 microneedling sessions with Dr. Shanthala over the course of a year and the results were amazing! Along with several botox treatments my skin is much clearer and firmer -better than its looked in many years. What I respect most about Dr. Shanthala is the the care she takes in thoroughly evaluating each patient as well as recommending and explaining the treatment(s) she is recommending, which in many cases are not the most expensive but the best for the patient. I completely trust her and feel very safe in her care. I would highly recommend Shanthala to anyone!

Thank you for all your help Dr Shanthala Shivananjappa!

OK so after a lot of research and going back and forth and reading… And rereading… The reviews I decided to for a consultation for ulthera.
I read the bad and the good and the.. Eh. I was scared because of the bad reviews and worried about the eh reviews too because I didn’t want to waste money… But mostly I was afraid when I read some of the horror stories.
Many people believe that the bad stories are planted by competitors and some believe the same about the good ones as well.. So where does that leave you and I? Well we have to sift through the wreckage and make a decision. I really put thought into all this and what I have come up …
I think many of the reviews on both sides are valid and true… I think many people have been hurt and many have had not too much improvement and many have had amazing results. I think most of the difference lies in who does it. And I don’t think that just because someone is an MD or PS it will guarantee anything. Sure it’s better to have a doctor then a technician… However.. I have had some very very bad doctors. I can go on and on about that.. But I won’t because I will get off topic. Maybe I’ll submit some more reviews so you can see what I have been through.. It’s God awful.
So I believe.. Now more then ever.. It’s totally dependent on who does this procedure and research is vital to find that person.
With all this in mind.. When I read about Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa after moving to the area, I figured a consult couldn’t hurt.
I was impressed with the time she took to eleviate any concerns plus knowing she herself had the procedure done made me feel better. She is very beautiful.
I was immediately put at ease and decided that I would roll the dice.
I am very happy I did. It was exactly what I needed and I have complete trust in her. If you meet her you’ll see why I say that.. I have also since had fillers and botox and plan on having more.
The results so far have been great and I look forward to even more improvement. I can see how this is not a cure all for everyone but… It certainly gave me exactly what I was looking for and I believe this doctor would have definitely steered me away if she felt it would not work for me. She is that honest… And it’s a great therapy.. Just please please do your research before doing this with just anyone. Thank you for all your help Shanthala Shivananjappa!

Botox – Older Man Gives It a Try

As a 65 year old, I gave Botox a try and was amazed at the results. I don’t look like I’ve had a facelift, but rather like I’ve taken a nice, long, relaxing vacation! It took a lot for me to decide to visit the Med Spa for a consultation. Dr Shanthala’s fantastic reviews by personal referral won me over. I made an appointment and received Botox on my face. My hard lines are either gone or much lighter. I will certainly be back for more! Don’t wait – I suggest making an appointment for a consultation if you are considering Botox or any other procedure. Dr Shanthala is great!

Wonderful doctor and practice! – Peabody, MA

Dr. Shanthala is an amazing physician and true artist who cares deeply about her work and her patients. I felt as if I were at a spa with the level of pampering and personal attention that I received from both the doctor and her staff. From my consultation appointment to my actual procedure, I knew that I was in good hands. Dr. Shanthala listened to my concerns and wants before recommending the procedures that would give me the exact look I desired. I am thrilled with the outcome and am looking forward to returning to her wonderful practice.

My experience was top rate.

I have gone to many places for my botox and fillers but none of them can come to close to how good Dr. Shanthala is. I went to her because I was starting to get vertical lines above my lip and without much pain pouf they were gone. She is so kind and makes time to speak to you about you want to achieve. My face is in her hands from now on.

I cleared out my skin from the acne and acne’ scares

I will give my honest experience at Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa, MD clinic I have been going to Dr. Shanthala clinic now for 6 months and she has changed my skin. I started getting acnes when I was 19. I have used in the past a lot of medications and treatments to get rid of acne (I am 26 now) and nothing has worked for me; I gave up on having clear skin and I reached to a point to live with my acne and my scars. I started using makeup to hide them and I couldn’t go to any place without foundation on my face!!. in September 2016, I found Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa, MD clinic; I read a lot of good reviews and I decided to try different treatments. In the consultation, we sat together talking about acne’s causes and she was so clear with me that I have to collaborate as well in order to achieve a good result. She took her time explaining all the causes and the current used technologies to treat acne. We decided to find the cause that trigger the acne by eliminating dairy, junk food and fried food. She also recommended me to use benzoyl peroxide, cleanser and from Obagi. I used the medications for less than three months and I stopped getting acne. The cause ended up to be dairy! I transitioned to dairy free (which is hard but so worth it). Also, I started eating cleaner and healthier food. I was so happy that I stopped getting new pimples. I also stopped using makeup in daily bases. After that, we started the treatments to get rid of the acne scars and the redness. I have done chemical peeling, PRP + Micro-needling, subcision+ RF Micro-needling (my skin loved this treatment), Snail slim micro-needling. Now after 6 months, my skin looks so good without makeup and I am so happy that I found Dr. Shanthala clinic. Also, as a person, she is wonderful person. She is so honest with you and her goal is to see her patients happy. If you want a treatment and Dr. Shanthala knows the treatment will not work for you, she will tell you it will not work for you and it will be waste of money. She is also so generous, I always leave her clinic with some samples to use at home. I highly recommend Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa, MD clinic and please put in your mind that having a clear, bright skin is a long journey. You need to be patient and collaborate with the Dr, otherwise you will waste your money.

Fillers and Botox by Physician

I have been a patient at Dr. Shanthala’s Med Spa for two years. I wouldn’t dream of letting anyone touch my face with fillers or Botox besides Dr. Shanthala. Why drive into Boston when Dr. Shanthala’s meticulous expertise is right here in Peabody, MA. She is truly amazing. You won’t regret it!! I highly recommend it!

A different league for this area

What this doctor reminds me of is something one only usually finds on the west coast. I have had countless treatments. You have the ability to forge an ongoing relationship and truly make changes that she is interested in, every bit as much as you are. You can go to her quite often and get evaluated from head to toe and take steps to partner up with her to make those changes. She doesn’t sell you something she doesn’t believe in. I can’t say enough about her that’s good. If you haven’t tried clear and brilliant do so! Make sure you pick the right doctor though!

Lines Around Mouth and Downward Turned Corners of Mouth, Double Chin, No Volume in Cheek Area, 48 Year Old Female

I had Restylane Refyne around my mouth area. It significantly smoothed out the fine lines and wrinkles and made my lips look full and natural. What an incredible difference. She made my mouth look 10 years younger! I had Kybella for my double chin. After completing two treatments (4-6 wks apart), I look like a new person. It improved my profile dramatically and took years off of my overall look. I had Radiasse for my cheeks to add some volume in that area. The result was incredible. It makes me look years younger!

Wonderful Doctor

Dr. Shanthala is the sweetest, the most caring, and extremely patient physician I’ve ever met! She did not rush me with anything. She’d spent a lot of time examining my facial features from every angle to make sure she understood all of my concerns and discussed with me the best possible solutions for the amount of $ I was able to spend at the time. We did some botox and fillers here and there and surprisingly I didn’t bruise at all, and I bruise easily!

Amazing experience and results with fillers, botox, and many more.

Dr. Shanthala offers an extensive variety of cosmetic treatments and is meticulous in every step of the procedure, always making sure the patient is comfortable and well informed. I’ve had botox, fillers, facial thread lifts and coolsculpting over many years and give her my highest recommendation.

The only doctor to see!

Dr. Shanthala is an exceptional and honest provider. I have seen her 3 times for Botox. Each time she has made me feel completely at ease and comfortable in her hands. She gives an honest assessment of what is needed and has realistic expectations of what will be achieved from the injections. I appreciate her philosophy of having a natural, healthy face and trust her judgement 100%. She has always been generous with her time and samples. It is clear she isn’t in the business to sell, but rather to promote a healthy and natural looking outcome. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!

Don’t feel 68 and shouldn’t look it. Surgery was…

Don’t feel 68 and shouldn’t look it. Surgery was not an option. I made an appointment for consultation with Dr Shanthala. She recommended a series of different treatments spread out over time. We agreed on a course of action.
Actions included botox, Radiesse, thread lift, CO2 laser, and microneedling. I have had all procedures except CO2 laser, which will be performed in February.
Results are encouraging and realistic. People notice that I look better, but not in a “What did you do?” kind of way.

Excellent experience with Botox

I recently saw Dr. Shanthala for Botox for my glabellar lines and I am extremely happy with the results. Dr. Shanthala is very warm and caring with an excellent bedside manner which put me at ease. She took plenty of time to listen to my concerns and explain the procedure. She even called a few days later to check in to see how I was doing. I am so impressed with my results and highly recommend Dr. Shanthala

Amazing Experience with Botox

I have been seeing Dr. Shanthala for a year now and have had 3 Botox injections for my forehead lines, crows feet and very deep 11 in between my brows. I could not be happier with the results. When I first went a year ago I was terribly nervous, but after my consult with Dr. Shanthala my nerves were calmed as she explained everything in detail. The first injections were to just take care of the 11 between my brows and the results were amazing. My second injection I knew I wanted to do a bit more on my forehead to soften my “worm wrinkles” and my crows feet. The results were perfect, my face appearance is so much softer. I just had my 3rd injection and couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend Dr. Shanthala! You’ll be in great hands!

The woman is a genius.

Dr. Shanthala is AMAZING. I have been getting fillers and botox for over 10 years before discovering Dr. Shanthala and I wish I had found her years ago. My prior physicians were good, but Dr. Shanthala is just on a whole other level of expertise and patient care. I will cut to the chase—you will walk out of there feeling beautiful and having made a friend for life. Dr. Shanthala is the kindest, most caring soul I have ever come across in the medical community. I trust her with my face, skin and body (she also offers cool-sculpting). I was nervous to try someone new (the reason I did was because we re-located to Boston from another big city) but I cannot imagine going to anyone else. She will assess you in the kindest possible way and she puts you first. She will not recommend anything you do not need and in my case she talked me out of doing things I didn’t need. She is an artist. She takes her time and sees you in a way you’ve probably not seen yourself before. She assessed symmetry, skin-condition, everything. My lips look gorgeous. Plumper but very, very natural. My pores look much smaller after only one hydra-facial (which surprised me bc they were huge). The botox looks great and we are devising a long-term treatment plan for my skin. She also gave me wonderful advice and a treatment plan for hair loss. I never write reviews. I think this is my first review ever. I am writing it because when you are looking for someone it can be scary , especially when it comes to your face. I hope this helps others who are in the same boat. I kinda found her by accident and read her reviews which were amazing. I am adding mine because she is just that good. I hope it’s been helpful.

Skin Tightening – Yes Please!

The staff at ShanthalaMD is by far the friendliest and most inviting individuals I have met in a medical setting. They make you feel right at home as soon as you walk in. I’m always greeted with a warm smile, offered tea or coffee, etc.
The skin tightening is very effective but you do have to commit to weekly treatments for a short period to see results! Absolutely worth it. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to really improve the appearance of their skin. I decided to get skin tightening treatments for my body. I exercise regularly and eat well but I wanted to further contour my figure.
Aesthetics are very important to me and this is just one of the many options offered to me for my needs.

EndyMed intensif and Botox / filler for necklace lines on neck

Dr Shanthala and her staff are five star! Extremely professional and friendly. I had the endymed three deep intensif for undereye and neck lines. The procedure was quick and painless. Its only been two weeks and I already see improvement. I also had Botox and filler for necklace lines. I have hated these lines for ten plus years. They are drastically smoothed and much less noticeable! I can’t believe the difference. I wish I had gone to Dr. Shanthala years ago! I am really excited for my next treatment and so happy to have found the practice. Life changing!!

Wouldn’t trust anyone else….Dr Shanthala is amazing.

I have been seeing Dr Shanthala for over a year now and she has provided me with several Clear and Brilliant treatments as well as botox and mircodermabrasion. Dr. Shanthala won me over from our first meeting when she asked and really listened to what my concerns were. She took the time to describe in depth what treatments she thought would be best for me, and most importantly, advised me against a few treatments I wanted as they would be ‘overkill’. Her approach of ‘start conservatively and add more if you need it’ is wonderful and has kept me looking fresh and bright but always natural – exactly the look I wanted to achieve. She is a true friend to her clients and strives to keep them happy. Her office is relaxing and warm and her staff is among the friendliest and most professional I have met – they always offer you tea and follow up with calls to make sure your care was exceptional (which is always is). I’m so glad I found Dr. Shathala as I trust her and no one else with my face.

Best experience

I have done a lot of research looking for the best doctor to deliver my botox and lip filler treatment. I am 29 y.o female looking to get ahead of the aging curve while maintaining a natural look. Dr. Shanthala is so meticulous and caring. I am a dentist so I can appreciate her great bedside manner, trustworthiness and attention to detail. I was so nervous about my post-op swelling/bruising but Dr. Shanthala reassured me and she was absolutely right- I had slight lip bruising for 2 days after- nothing that make up couldn’t fix. She is great with a needle I had the topical anesthetic on my lips and it was not bad at all. The botox was a complete breeze and had zero bruising. I have gone to Dr. Shanthala for 3 appointments and can’t imagine going to anyone else. Her office is comfortable and her staff extremely friendly and non-judgemental. I love that she takes before pictures for reference and she is extremely knowledgable on the musculature of the face. She is very thorough in her assessment and knows what the products can achieve. As a fellow clinician and extremely satisfied patient I highly recommend Dr. Shanthala! Thank you for a great experience!

A Whole New Me

I am 58 years old and I recently visited Dr. Shivananjappa at Shanthala MD Medspa & Laser Center to see if she could help to soften the lines on my my forehead (Eleven lines) and crows feet as well as the lines above my upper lip (Smokers lines). Dr. Shivananjappa used botox to treat the forehead and eye area and fillers in the lip area. The results are amazing and surpassed my expectations. The lines on the upper part of my face are greatly softened making me looked more relaxed. My outer brows are even slightly lifted which opens my eyes. To treat the lip area she used fillers around my lips – my lower lip has been slowly disappearing over the years. But voila! Dr. Shivananjappa magically sculpted them with a bit of filler and the results are spectacular. The change is not so drastic that other’s would notice but, the lines above my upper lip are barely noticeable. It is even easier to apply lip liner and lip stick because my lips have a defineable border that had all but disppeared. I would highly recommend Dr. Shivananjappa. She is well-trained at her craft, honest and trustworthy. Dr. Shivananjappa takes pride in her work and her assessments are spot on.

Excellent Doctor

I had a very good experience with Shivananjappa. She is the most sensitive doctor I ever met. She really takes the time to hear what you want, what bothers you and why. She spent so much time with me to discuss what bothered me, gave me a bunch of options and the pros/cons of each and would not let me decide right there what i wanted to do. She wanted to give me time and provided me with material to research. I decided on coolsculpting and very happy with the results. I will continue to see Dr Shivananjappa.

A true skin master!!

I visited Dr. Shanthala a couple of times prior to my wedding and I can’t be more satisfied! Thanks to her everyone keeps complimenting how great I look on the big day. She is very knowledgeable, truly listens to all my concerns and her recommended treatments are always effective. She recommended PRP injections to fill the holes near my under eye area, along with hydra facials and vampire facials to make sure my skin is under the best condition. All of the treatments worked wonderfully. Every time I visit I can feel she really cares about each patient and she is very passionate about delivering the optimal result. Best doctor I know!

Shanthala is  well informed and gracious. She instantly made me feel welcomed.  I am very particular and cautious on who I choose to work with. I want to enhance not change anything. I am always nervous some one is going to go overboard and there will be no turning back. Shanthala only recommends what you need; she would rather you get the results you want then overly push to make more money.  I had the new Restylane Silk for botox and I loved the results.

I also have received Cool sculpt treatments on my stomach area. I had been to a place prior and was not very happy; Shanthala was very careful with her placement which is really important.  I am very happy with my results!

Visiting Dr. Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best thing

Visiting Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best  thing I have done for my self in years. I have tried several medspa type businesses in the past. They were  all good, but often they did not stay on top of the latest, safest and best procedures. None of these medspas had the expertise of   Shanthala. They also were  more about volume of clients, where Shanthala is all about doing what is best, for you , her most important client of the moment. You feel this attitude.. Her approach and consultation are also comfortable for the client, honest detailed information , no high pressure tactics. She is constantly training and attending  conferences and classes. She in compassionate, highly intelligent, has a wonderful bedside manner, and a great sense of humor. She holds herself to the highest  standards. The environment is meticulous, and so inviting. She is informative, affable and professional. My skin looks great and I had a wonderful time visiting her office . I had a micro needling procedure. A week later my  skin looks so beautiful. I have already called to book another appointment. I live closer to Boston, but the skills, service and experience of visiting Shanthala are better, than those offered in  areas more convenient to my home.
Oh, I also stopped for an  amazing crepe  at New Art of Gelato, after my visit to Shanthala. What a perfect day. This gelato and crepe place is less than 5 minutes from Shanthala, and the food was delicious. I had a spinach tomato and goat cheese crepe, and  freshly made blueberry gelato . My trip to Peabody was completely worth the drive. I also had very little traffic,as I booked my appointment on a Saturday morning.  I am so happy I made the effort to visit Shanthala. My entire experience was positive. the trip to Peabody is also very easy , and her office is just off an exit.

My mom has always said, “you get what you pay for.” So if you’re looking for a cheap and quick fix, then keep looking. When it comes to my health and beauty regime, I’ve done my research, and Dr. Shanthala is well worth the price to pay. Well versed in her practice and being completely in tune to my needs, you are sure to step into the hands of someone who listens and honestly recommends according to your current needs. I’ve felt every purchase of treatment I’ve made, well worth the time and price with Shanthala; she will not sell you on something you don’t need. This is not a medspa factory, and you are not a medical record number. Consider yourself a lifetime investment, because that is what Shanthala is about; you will not find a more individualized, passionate, and approachable Doctor around.

Dr. Shanthala is awesome!

Shanthala is awesome!  Not only is she an MD but she is caring and gracious.  She makes sure that you understand all treatment options and recommends what is best for you.  I initially went to one of the franchises and it was very sales oriented with junior staff as the primary people you interact with.  You will have the totally opposite experience with Shanthala AND the treatments really work!  She cares from the minute you walk into her medspa, throughout the entire treatment and after.  It amazes me that she has such fantastic bedside manner, as I have not experienced that very often with many doctors.  Don’t waste your time going anywhere else!

she is amazing.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Shanthala, she is amazing. I have had several treatments with her but this review is specifically touting her expertise with Botox. A few years ago I decided I wanted to try some botox, my kids had been asking me “why are you making a mad face mommy?” – I realized I was getting some serious lines between my eyebrows. I went to a local RN and initially though she had a done a good job until I realized that my eyebrows were completely spread apart, and my entire forehead frozen, I didn’t even look like myself, it was terrible. I also had a lot of bruising which at the time, not knowing any better,  I thought was normal. Flash forward a year and to a visit to Shanthala for microdermabrasion and she suggested I try botox again. She explained her method and promised I would not have that same frozen look. Shanthala suggests that botox should be done more frequently but with less amounts (units) than others use. The other thing she does is she administers the botox in far more locations, smaller amounts but spread out more. She also noticed a vein down the middle of my forehead and was sure to avoid it to prevent bruising. I can’t tell you how many people I now notice that have had horrible botox treatments. It is so distracting while having a conversation! With Shanthala’s skilled hand my wrinkles are gone, my face looks relaxed and smooth, and I look like a better version of myself. She is a genius!

extremely satisfied with the outcome

I started noticing lines in my forehead and did not like what I saw. I called Dr Shanthala….as a friend had treatments done there and was extremely satisfied with the outcome….and went in. Imagine my surprise at how warm and welcoming they were. I do have to say I was a bit apprehensive…but the staff, including Dr Shanthala made me feel comfortable. The thing that really surprised me was that I wanted to do Botox in a few areas but Dr Shanthala stated I did not need it done in all those areas. She proceeded with the Botox, only where she felt it was needed, and I cannot thank her enough!! Not only do I look 10 years younger, but I’m still aghast that unlike most other spas, the Doctor did not perform a treatment that she felt I did not need. If you are thinking of Botox, or any other treatment, please seek out Dr Shanthala. You will be happy you did.

I am thrilled with the outcome and am looking forward to returning to her wonderful practice.

Dr. Shanthala is so amazing!

I have been to her office for Botox and filler under my eyes with the cannula. She is so knowledgeable and is truly an artist! Her office is beautiful and from the moment you arrive you feel so welcomed. Donna D.

She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.

From the moment I met Dr. Shanthala, I could see that this woman exudes CLASS.  She has the most professional and caring demeanor. She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.  This is a very knowledgeable woman. Did I mention that she is a doctor?! Not only does she perform all procedures with the utmost care, but she also is very aware of sterile technique. As a Registered Nurse, I find this trait very appealing. She takes the time to educate each of her patients and makes them feel completely comfortable before she proceeds with any treatment.

After consulting with Dr. Shanthala, I decided on micro needling. As a woman in my early 40s, I am starting to see uneven skin tones, sagginess and fine wrinkles around my eyes, forehead and laugh lines. What I love about the micro needling is that it is an all-in-one type of procedure. It helps with wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tightening, large pores and acne. I have had 2 treatments and have already seen remarkable improvements in my skin. I notice less wrinkle lines, a smoother appearance and more even skin tones.  The best part is there is no down time for this procedure. Before visiting her med spa, I was on an acne medicine for years. Since I have been seeing Dr. Shanthala, I ‘ve been able to stop taking this medication! My skin has never looked better.

I can honestly say that Dr. Shanthala has become one of my favorite people. She is passionate about what she does and her customer service is impeccable. I absolutely love going to her medical spa. The ambiance is inviting, the care is top-notch and the staff is supportive, inviting and caring. Take my advice and experience it for yourself. I can promise, you will not be disappointed!

Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING!

I went to see Dr. Shanthala a month before my sister’s wedding. I recently had a baby and am still very much over weight and so my self esteem was at an all time low. Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING! She spent a really long time with me, making sure we pick the absolute best treatment. Never once did I feel pressured into anything unnecessary (if anything, she kept telling me I don’t need things done!) and the results are beyond my expectations! I feel like myself again. Thank you!!!

Tank You Dr. Shanthala

El año pasado empeze a perder pelo cabelludo. He tenido 3 sesciones con la Doctora Shanthala para que me cresca el pelo y me ha estado funsionando. Mi pelo cabelludo ahora esta lleno de pelo. Me siento muy bien de mi misma. Se la recomiendo a todos!

my results are OUTSTANDING!

I cannot recommend Dr. Shanthala enough, she is truly everything you could hope for in a doctor providing consultations and subsequent services for your precious FACE!

Making an appointment was a breeze, and they’ll ask if you have any desire to have the treatment done same day. You may, you may not – if you choose not to, expect a consultation fee (which I believe is then applied to the cost of services). The idea is everyone’s time is valuable and clients who no-show or have no real intent of following through have a real impact on the business. I went for Botox and had every intention of having it done same-day, so we never even discussed a consultation fee.

The office is in the same plaza as Latitude on Rt 1 South, all the way to the left. You ring a doorbell to be let in – all about that privacy, baby!

At the front desk, Maciel might be my new best friend, that’s how sweet and welcoming she is. She will give you forms to complete and make sure you know what to expect before, during, and after. Then it’s off to the consult room! Dr. Shanthala is like a walking billboard for what she does — she looks about 30 but I’m assuming she must be older only because she has a successful practice and kids who aren’t in diapers.

Like other reviewers said, she won’t recommend anything she truly doesn’t believe you need (SO nice to have when dealing with elective procedures!), and will air on the side of caution to see how you react individually to your treatment of choice. You can always do more – you can’t always do less…

Expect before photos (afters are taken during your follow up appointment), only shared with your permission, otherwise just for you and Dr. S. Also expect a follow-up call or two, to check in on progress and your satisfaction. (I loved that!) Finally, depending on what you did, you might schedule a follow-up appointment (for Botox at least this was a no-fee follow-up). LOTS of hands-on, dedicated attention and care!

They also partner with an app that gives you rewards points for certain procedures (Botox is one)… so you get discounts in the future! How amazing is that?!

And — most importantly — my results are OUTSTANDING! I got exactly what I wanted, my “11s” between my eyebrows are GONE, and I have plenty of expression and movement. I would do it again 10x over and probably will! Price-wise, I googled the cost of Botox and Dr. S is right in line with the averages, so do some research to know what kind of price range you’re dealing with. I did 20 units in between brows, and 5 on either cheek for crows feet. I’m 30 and was doing more preventative than corrective, so your requirements may be different but hopefully that gives you an idea!

If you’re on the fence — GO! She’s professional, works in a comfortable but sterile environment, has excellent bedside manner, direct feedback, tons of experience and expertise, is convenient, thorough, and friendly! What more could you want?

Please go and see for yourself this new and exceptional spa.

As we age our looks change. Everyone wants to look their best. The only option used to be a surgical procedure. Shantala has spent several years studying other options and is now able to offer us the latest and safest options at her new Medspa and Laser Center. There is no anesthesia, surgery or down time.

I have experienced several of her new procedures such as Ultherapy, Micro needling and Botox. These procedure are easy and painless. The best part is that you look younger and younger as time passes.

On September 10th, she is having an educational session on Ultherapy. You will learn what it is and what it does. You will even be able to experience exactly how it feels. There is limited space so it is important to reserve a spot.

More important is her Grand Opening on October 6 at 5:30. You will be able to learn about all of the wonderful new procedures and products Shantla has to offer.

I could go on and on. Please go and see for yourself this new and exceptional spa.

Dr.. Shantala is one of the best doctors I known.

Dr.. Shantala is one of the best doctors I known. In addition to his years of experience, he loves his work, is a perfectionist and takes the time to explain the procedure and process. I come to her office because I wanted the vampire facelift, even I have 31 years and she recommended fillers and botox. I am very happy with the result and experience. So much so that I think back. Not only for their excellent work, also because as soon as you walk into her office is a relaxing environment as a spa. Thanks Dr..Shantala for your time, see you soon.

Thank you Dr. Shanthala,

I don’t usually write reviews but I just had to now. About 8 months ago, I got a facial filler done at a doctors office like I usually do a couple of times a year. This time though, something went terribly wrong. I’m not sure the what the medical term is for what happened to me, but it seems that the filler was injected into a blood vessel. What followed was horrible. Immediately, the left side of my face went numb and I developed a terrible infection that caused a horrible lesion, and my face to swell and look deformed. I temporarily lost my eye sight in my left eye and was in a lot of pain. I was scared and confused and seeked some answers or even help from the doctor that performed the treatment. To make a long story short, I called the office 5 times before the doctor called me back, only to tell me that I’ll be fine and to take some Advil. After 8 months, I still have numbness in my face and a scar from the lesion. I finally decided to consult Dr, Shanathala and get her opinion on whether I would ever be able to do anything to my face again. Call me crazy after what I went through, but at the end of the day, I am still a woman and aging concerns me like all of us. From the moment I walked in to her office, I felt the warmth and calm that she put out. She explained to me what happened to me and let me decide if I wanted to take things slow.
I wanted her to do a little filler again, so after 45 minutes of her explaining everything to me, she did, even though I was terrified, and I was thrilled with the results, and I got the courage to do things to my face again with her help.
Thank you Dr. Shanthala,
For being a human being, for showing compassion, for being a professional, for listening, for being amazing at your job, for loving what you do, and loving your patients,for not cutting corners, for being patient and all around for being a beautiful person.

Is very relaxing and artistic.

I was referred from my sister to come visit this place and lets just say she did a GREAT JOB! on August 31st 2015 I got my Botox done by Dr. Shanthala MD and today was my second visit. I love the outcome!, I am so pleased with the results. I can no longer frown! Makes me feel 10X better walking into the sun without sunglasses (in case they are not with me) But I am confident with not having those lines in between my brow. She also did some amazing work on my sisters face. I definitely recommend!!! Her personality is just wonderful. She took her time and sat down with me and asked me questions to better understand what I wanted to get done. She is very open and honest and makes sure that all your questions are answered before she takes the next step. At the end of the visit she goes over the guidelines and what you should and do not do. I really enjoy her time and effort she put into her work because my results came out GREAT! Oh and I forgot to mention how lovely her office is put together. Is very relaxing and artistic. 🙂 THANK YOU for the wonderful results Dr. Shanthala MD! I will be back soon!

I was recommended to see Dr. Shanthala

It’s rare to find a physician who will take the time to sit down and listen to your concerns and take the time to really understand who you are and what your specific needs are as a patient.

Here is a little bit about my experience with Dr. Shanthala: I was recommended to see Dr. Shanthala by a friend. I arrived a few minutes prior to the appointment, and she called me in for my consult right on time. We sat down to discuss what my particular needs are for skincare, and we discussed what I am currently doing for skincare. She gave me some great suggestions for skincare, and did a couple of treatments in the office. Throughout the experience, Dr. Shanthala’s truly caring personality was apparent, and it is clear that she wants the best for her patients.

Now, about a month out from my initial visit, I couldn’t be happier with the results. My skin looks great, and the treatment areas look youthful and natural.

I will be recommending Dr. Shanthala to my friends and family, and am looking forward to seeing her again.

I have visited Dr. Shanthala on many occasions, and she has always been nothing but professional, educational, and an artist of her craft. Today I had a hydra facial and it was absolutely amazing. My dry, unkept winter skin is now incredibly soft, clean and moisturized. I will be revisiting this treatment monthly. I would highly recommend her office for your skin care needs.

Clear & Brilliant & Under-eye treatment

Over time, because of my under eye hollows and hyper pigmentation I had become wary of being photographed. But thanks to Dr Shanthala this is not the case any more. She put together a plan for treatment that included a series of Clear and Brilliant treatments as well as micro needling sessions. The results have been amazing!! I cannot afford too much down time and this worked perfectly for me. I found Dr Shanthala to be a consummate professional and an expert in her field. I recommend her highly!!

Clear and brilliant laser – beautiful results!

I bought a package of clear and brilliant laser treatments. I’ve had three so far and I love it. I haven’t experienced any down time other than some redness but that is gone by the following day. The effect has been really beautiful. My skin is very clear and glowing. The best thing about Dr. Shanthala is that she always listens and understands what I consider my problem areas. She also guides me in the right direction and will tell me when a procedure doesn’t make sense. I love how honest and caring she is. Her and I are going to have a long relationship!

Highly recommended

I have visited Dr. Shanthala 3 times now. The first appointment she spent one hour just talking about my prospective procedures and what I want to achieve. It was a very comfortable experience and she is more than knowledgeable about each process. After my first procedure, I knew that this doctor is a true professional who uses the smartest approach to achieve the natural look I want. I can’t say enough good things about her.

A different league for this area

What this doctor reminds me of is something one only usually finds on the west coast. I have had countless treatments. You have the ability to forge an ongoing relationship and truly make changes that she is interested in, every bit as much as you are. You can go to her quite often and get evaluated from head to toe and take steps to partner up with her to make those changes. She doesn’t sell you something she doesn’t believe in. I can’t say enough about her that’s good. If you haven’t tried clear and brilliant do so! Make sure you pick the right doctor though!

Lines Around Mouth and Downward Turned Corners of Mouth, Double Chin, No Volume in Cheek Area, 48 Year Old Female

I had Restylane Refyne around my mouth area. It significantly smoothed out the fine lines and wrinkles and made my lips look full and natural. What an incredible difference. She made my mouth look 10 years younger! I had Kybella for my double chin. After completing two treatments (4-6 wks apart), I look like a new person. It improved my profile dramatically and took years off of my overall look. I had Radiasse for my cheeks to add some volume in that area. The result was incredible. It makes me look years younger!

Dr Shanthala is a truly professional, talented, wonderful and amazing doctor.

I have been having treatments with Dr. Shanthala for the past few months. Dr Shanthala is a truly professional, talented, wonderful and amazing doctor. She listens to my needs and addresses my concerns, and I find that she listens to me as she answers all my questions. I just completed my third session of co2re intima with Dr. Shanthala. The treatment is really wonderful, painless and easy. Dr Shanthala explained the treatment extensively before I started and her warm and gentle personality made the treatment even more comfortable. I have found that vaginal dryness has improved tremendously from the first treatment, I feel significantly tighter and no more urinary leakage! She went to great lengths to ensure that I was completely comfortable and the treatment was painless. Dr. Shanthala checked up with me after each treatment to ensure that I was okay. I did not experience any problems after each treatment. I have also had a few sessions of Clear & brilliant. I have sensitive skin and prone to pigmentation. Dr. Shanthala recommended C & B as a gentle laser to help me. My skin is clearer and brighter, the pigments significantly lighter. Dr. Shanthala performed all the treatments herself, which I feel is a very important consideration. I am very happy with my treatments here and would highly recommend Dr. Shanthala as a doctor who truly cares about you.

A master– the best there is.

Sometimes you come across a physician who does more than just “what you asked for”. Sometimes you come across a physician who truly listens to you, PAYS real attention, and actually cares. Dr Shanthala is not only a genius at what she does, she is a caring and kind professional who I not only respect but who I look forward to seeing and talking with. Sometimes you come across a physician who is one in a million. And that has been my experience with Dr Shanthala.

A pleasurable experience

The location is nice and there is plenty of parking. Once inside it is a very peaceful and relaxing environment. I have done two micro-needling sessions here I was amazed at the results after the first time. My main concern was with my acne scars and the hyper pigmentation that came along with them. My acne scars have improved just after one time, red pigment faded significantly. I have had hyper-pigmentation for over ten years after my severe acne (cystic) went away this is the only thing that has worked for that. The texture of my skin has improved everywhere, my concern was with acne scars but was very happy when my pores reduced in size and my complexion improved everywhere on my face. The micro-needling didn’t hurt it ticked a little bit because of the numbing cream. The second appointment I did Micro-needling with subcision. The subcision there was very little pain , barely anything to complain about. I saw very good results from subcision right away. I recovered fast my face was red for a day, the next day slightly pink and 90% clear on 3rd day on the 4th was completely clear (I wanted the deepest microneedling 2.5mm). With my time at the consultation, and with the doctor on both appointments I never felt like I was being rushed. I had a pleasurable experience and the time spent there I was taken care of, no complaints. Dr. Shanthala listened to what I wanted to do and then did it, very professional aside from being a medical professional she is very nice and caring, talking to me over the phone post op and looking at my skin after in person. The patient coordinator, Maciel is very friendly and knowledgeable, it was easy to book an appointment and, in my experience whenever I called she or Dr. Shanthala answered and helped me. Dorothy did my consultation and it was in depth, I learned a lot about how to take care of my skin from her and Dr. Shanthala. Thank you.

Great atmosphere and great staff

I am a male approaching 40 yrs old and I have been a patient of Dr Shanthala for approx 15 months. Dr. Shanthala is very talented at the craft of aesthetic enhancement! She meets your expectations with experience as well as creative and realistic insight and does not over- promise and under- deliver, like some other doctors and professionals. I was new to the whole botox treatment plan and only decided to follow through because of the lines in my forehead and the angry lines in my brow. People were asking me if I was angry at them, when I was only starring off in their direction lol. I also had a very special event ahead of me and I wanted to stop the progressive nature of the deep lines and soften the skin up a little. Dr Shanthala starts treatments off slow and gets to know both her patients skin as well as their personality and tolerance for different treatments. It is not a high pressure place and as the patient you begin to learn more each time as the doctor tailors a plan or just makes suggestions based on your unique facial canvas. The atmosphere is professional but relaxed and fun. Coming from someone that lifted weights and laid in the sun and tanning booth for years, I wanted to make a change and slow down the aging process as part of my mini mid life crisis.HA. Dr Shanthala is the best doctor to be a part of that process with her experience, honesty, and humor! You don’t have to be a woman or even a man that wears a suit and tie to work everyday, in order to want to look a little more polished!

Excellent Doctor

I had a very good experience with Shivananjappa. She is the most sensitive doctor I ever met. She really takes the time to hear what you want, what bothers you and why. She spent so much time with me to discuss what bothered me, gave me a bunch of options and the pros/cons of each and would not let me decide right there what i wanted to do. She wanted to give me time and provided me with material to research. I decided on coolsculpting and very happy with the results. I will continue to see Dr Shivananjappa.

extremely satisfied with the outcome

I started noticing lines in my forehead and did not like what I saw. I called Dr Shanthala….as a friend had treatments done there and was extremely satisfied with the outcome….and went in. Imagine my surprise at how warm and welcoming they were. I do have to say I was a bit apprehensive…but the staff, including Dr Shanthala made me feel comfortable. The thing that really surprised me was that I wanted to do Botox in a few areas but Dr Shanthala stated I did not need it done in all those areas. She proceeded with the Botox, only where she felt it was needed, and I cannot thank her enough!! Not only do I look 10 years younger, but I’m still aghast that unlike most other spas, the Doctor did not perform a treatment that she felt I did not need. If you are thinking of Botox, or any other treatment, please seek out Dr Shanthala. You will be happy you did.

I really appreciate everything Doctor Shanthala has done for me.

My experience with Dr Shanthala has been unlike  any other doctor experience I’ve had prior. Dr Shanthala spent over one hour with me in my initial consultation. She helped educate me about how the acne scars were formed and how different treatments can help with the scars. She is very understanding as this is a sensitive subject for me. Also very comforting when I was brought to tears after talking about my struggle! she even stayed late and did my first treatment the same night as my consultation because she truly cares and didn’t want me to be sad anymore! We came up with a plan that works for me and my type of acne scars (mostly rolling mixed with some other types) . I am only on my second month of treatment but I trust the doctor and our plan. We are trying subcision mixed with other treatments to treat the look of the scars. When we get to a certain point where I am satisfied then we will include bellafill for volume.

Overall, it’s important to trust your doctor and the plan.  You should do your research but let her do her job and don’t try and go there and be the doctor. DR. Shanthala has helped me  learn  that the treatment of acne scars will take time. I still have a long road ahead but I am already starting to feel more confident and care less about my acne scars because I know I am treating them.
I really appreciate everything Doctor Shanthala has done for me. She is very respectful , easy to talk to, caring, and a great listener. She really wants to help you. Since it’s her business she can take the time to treat you and come up with a plan that you feel comfortable with and that’s right for your type of acne scars!

Of note, I have previously tried non-ablative Fraxel Laser treatments suggested by a cosmetic dermatologist at a major hospital in Boston and was disappointed when there was no significant difference after the three recommended  treatments.

I hope this review helps at least one person that’s struggling with acne scars like me!

Dr. Shanthala is an amazing physician

Dr. Shanthala is an amazing physician and true artist who cares deeply about her work and her patients.  I felt as if I were at a spa with the level of pampering and personal attention that I received from both the doctor and her staff.  From my consultation appointment to my actual procedure, I knew that I was in good hands. Dr. Shanthala listened to my concerns and wants before recommending the procedures that would give me the exact look I desired. I am thrilled with the outcome and am looking forward to returning to her wonderful practice.

She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.

From the moment I met Dr. Shanthala, I could see that this woman exudes CLASS.  She has the most professional and caring demeanor. She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.  This is a very knowledgeable woman. Did I mention that she is a doctor?! Not only does she perform all procedures with the utmost care, but she also is very aware of sterile technique. As a Registered Nurse, I find this trait very appealing. She takes the time to educate each of her patients and makes them feel completely comfortable before she proceeds with any treatment.

After consulting with Dr. Shanthala, I decided on micro needling. As a woman in my early 40s, I am starting to see uneven skin tones, sagginess and fine wrinkles around my eyes, forehead and laugh lines. What I love about the micro needling is that it is an all-in-one type of procedure. It helps with wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tightening, large pores and acne. I have had 2 treatments and have already seen remarkable improvements in my skin. I notice less wrinkle lines, a smoother appearance and more even skin tones.  The best part is there is no down time for this procedure. Before visiting her med spa, I was on an acne medicine for years. Since I have been seeing Dr. Shanthala, I ‘ve been able to stop taking this medication! My skin has never looked better.

I can honestly say that Dr. Shanthala has become one of my favorite people. She is passionate about what she does and her customer service is impeccable. I absolutely love going to her medical spa. The ambiance is inviting, the care is top-notch and the staff is supportive, inviting and caring. Take my advice and experience it for yourself. I can promise, you will not be disappointed!

Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING!

I went to see Dr. Shanthala a month before my sister’s wedding. I recently had a baby and am still very much over weight and so my self esteem was at an all time low. Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING! She spent a really long time with me, making sure we pick the absolute best treatment. Never once did I feel pressured into anything unnecessary (if anything, she kept telling me I don’t need things done!) and the results are beyond my expectations! I feel like myself again. Thank you!!!

El año pasado empeze a perder pelo cabelludo. He tenido 3 sesciones con la Doctora Shanthala para que me cresca el pelo y me ha estado funsionando. Mi pelo cabelludo ahora esta lleno de pelo. Me siento muy bien de mi misma. Se la recomiendo a todos!

I was recommended to see Dr. Shanthala

It’s rare to find a physician who will take the time to sit down and listen to your concerns and take the time to really understand who you are and what your specific needs are as a patient.

Here is a little bit about my experience with Dr. Shanthala: I was recommended to see Dr. Shanthala by a friend. I arrived a few minutes prior to the appointment, and she called me in for my consult right on time. We sat down to discuss what my particular needs are for skincare, and we discussed what I am currently doing for skincare. She gave me some great suggestions for skincare, and did a couple of treatments in the office. Throughout the experience, Dr. Shanthala’s truly caring personality was apparent, and it is clear that she wants the best for her patients.

Now, about a month out from my initial visit, I couldn’t be happier with the results. My skin looks great, and the treatment areas look youthful and natural.

I will be recommending Dr. Shanthala to my friends and family, and am looking forward to seeing her again.

Don’t feel 68 and shouldn’t look it. Surgery was not an option. I made an appointment for consultation with Dr Shanthala. She recommended a series of different treatments spread out over time. We agreed on a course of action.
Actions included botox, Radiesse, thread lift, CO2 laser, and microneedling. I have had all procedures except CO2 laser, which will be performed in February.
Results are encouraging and realistic. People notice that I look better, but not in a “What did you do?” kind of way.

Amazing Results O-Shot & Co2RE Intima Dr. Shanthala!!!!!

After years of urinary incontinence, I finally decided to see if there was a non invasive core. Rushing to the bathroom at the end of a meeting, on the way home from work or after a flight always resulted in a me peeing myself just enough to be uncomfortable for the rest of the day. After researching online I saw something for the O-Shot and thought I would give it a whirl. The only thing that freaked me out is that it seems fairly new (last 5 -10 years). I also wanted to make sure the Dr. performed a few of these procedures regularly. I found 2 in my area and decided to go with Dr. Shanthala. Not only, was she skilled, informative and warm she also took the time which is uncommon in today’s world. After discussing my issues, we thought it would be best if I paired he O- Shot and CO2RE Intima laser together. She recommended 3 sessions. I am 2 sessions in and the results are amazing. No more accidents. Still have to run to the bathroom, but now I can hold it!!!!!!

The other results have also been beautiful. My vagina no longer looks decrepit. The skin looks more supple I have more moisture which has also led to better sex. By far one of the best decisions I have made in a long time!! Thanks to Dr. Shanthala

CO2RE Core Intima

The results were fantastic.

I want to review ShanthalaMD Med Spa from a different prospective.
Everyone knows someone that has had breast cancer and had chemotherapy. Many women also have hysterectomies to stop the flow of estrogen that can fuel the cancer. When this happens to someone young (and someone not so young) it can have a negative impact on their ability to have intimacy.
This was a problem for me. I was happy to be alive and accepted the changes that occurred…after all, I was cured of cancer. But, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse and difficulties with intimacy weighed heavily on me and my husband.
I want to shout, shout, shout out to the world…I have found a simple solution for me…
CO2RE is a laser procedure that restores vaginal tone and treats dryness. I had a series of three treatments at ShanthalaMD and I am thrilled with the results. Even after the first treatment I noticed improvement. Each treatment only lasted about 10-15 minutes and was essentially painless. I also saw a great improvement with urinary symptoms…leaking urine essentially stopped.
Dr. Shanthala did the procedure herself and was very respectful and professional. It was not an unpleasant or painful procedure and was really fast.
The results were fantastic. I (and my husband) am very happy.
I will be returning to ShanthalaMD to have the PRP shot treatment that is non surgical. It helps with sexual response.
So there it is, I couldn’t be happier. Thank You Dr. Shanthala

I am a breast cancer survivor with issues of vaginal dryness.

I also at times have some bladder leakage, ie sneezing, or coughing. The CO2RE Itima was quick, and not painful at all (like having a pap smear). I noticed improvement right after Intima, and I am still seeing signs of more improvement.

Highly recommended

I have visited Dr. Shanthala 3 times now. The first appointment she spent one hour just talking about my prospective procedures and what I want to achieve. It was a very comfortable experience and she is more than knowledgeable about each process. After my first procedure, I knew that this doctor is a true professional who uses the smartest approach to achieve the natural look I want. I can’t say enough good things about her.

Amazing experience and staff. . . so worth a visit

From the moment I entered Shanthala MD clinic I was impressed. The staff, the facility all were very clean and welcoming. I felt very safe as well. To enter the facility you have to be “buzzed” in. No one walking by can just pop in to the office without being screened visually. In this day and age I think this is a wonderful idea where for the most part women probably make up most of the client population. My initial eval lasted over an hour with the Doctor. She was thorough with her evaluation, exhausting all methods of treatment that was available to me. She offered me her expert opinion to help with my concerns. I felt so comfortable and confident I started some of my treatments that day. I have noted the change and feel more confident with my appearance. I’m 60 years old and so glad I finally chose to treat myself to this experience. I’m hooked and will continue.

44 yr old freshening things up

Just had my second appointment with Dr. Shanthala for the core intima, ( vaginal rejuvenation). As a 44 yr old , I had my child when I was young and now I’m starting to feel the effects of middle age creeping up on me. I do have some stress leakage, when you laugh to much, sneeze, get in your car…..plus I wanted to freshen things up down there. As a nurse I can honestly say that Dr Shanthala is one of the nicest, caring, and thoughtful doctors that I have seen. She takes the time to explain why and what she is doing . Always asking if I was ok. For the procedure itself I did feel some difference with the first one, more with sensitivity, I’m excited to see how the second turns out, I’m scheduled for my third . Looking forward to having more procedures with Dr Shanthala in future and will give updates

CO2RE Intima for Lichen Sclerosis with Dr.Shanthala In Peabody

I am a 60 year old woman who was diagnosed about 15 years ago with Lichen Sclerosus. I also suffered a significant infection and menopause. I was told by my gynecologist there was little that could be done, and treated for a time with cortisone. Over the years, my labia atrophied and i was always uncomfortable, itchy, and very very dry. Without the protection of the labia, all my “lady parts” constantly were rubbing on my clothing, which just made things worse. I am very active, and I run, do yoga and pilates and bootcamp – I have not been able to do any of these without significant lubrication before any activities, and bike riding has been out for the past few years. I cannot say more emphatically how even the first treatment has changed my life!!! With the CORE2 INTIMA and PRP, I have started to experience a normal amount of vaginal moisture, I am not itching, moving is comfortable. The PRP has really changed the structure of my labia, I finally feel like a normal woman, with labia and the kind of “padding” I should have. I had a second treatment in July and I could not be happier. I have my life back, I don’t spend time and energy thinking about how I’ll be able to lubricate, or peel of clothes that are stuck in some very dry and sensitive areas. That was my life, and COR2E INTIMA and PRP has changed it. Lichen Sclerosus is horrible. If you have it, you need to check this out. I did my research and thought this could help – I was desperate. I has helped beyond my greatest expectation! It should be covered by insurance – I have had may UTIs and vaginal infections because of the lack of moisture and the changes in structure of the physical structure. My quality of life and my condition is so much better now, I can’t recommend this highly enough – check it out!Dr. Shanthala is amazing! She is so knowledgeable, and also has such a calm reassuring manner that I felt understood and cared about.

Sometimes you come across a physician who does more than just “what you asked for”. Sometimes you come across a physician who truly listens to you, PAYS real attention, and actually cares. Dr Shanthala is not only a genius at what she does, she is a caring and kind professional who I not only respect but who I look forward to seeing and talking with. Sometimes you come across a physician who is one in a million. And that has been my experience with Dr Shanthala.

CO2RE® Intima and PRP, Boston, MA

It is such a blessing to find a doctor like Dr. Shanthala. She is extremely knowledgeable about the field of vaginal rejuvenation. She is focused, skilled, exacting and a consummate professional. She is truly one-of-a-kind with her incredible depth of knowledge, compassionate care, and the amount of time she spends with you. She is a true educator. She, truly, cares about her patients. I had been suffering for the last 8 years with vaginal atrophy. The dryness was so severe, sexual relations seemed impossible. When I came across Dr. Shanthala’s work, I talked to her extremely experienced staff who are sweet, knowledgeable and truly professional. They came across trustworthy and very easy to talk to. After then speaking with Dr. Shanthala, a very loving spirit and true educator, I knew I was in good hands. She listens carefully to all your needs and believes in educating all of her patients. Dr. Shanthala was very thorough during our first meeting which lasted a good hour because she wanted me to truly understand the CO2RE® Intima procedure and she wanted to examine me thoroughly. As Dr. Shanthala prepped me for the treatment, and throughout the next 30 minutes or so, she took the time necessary to make me feel comfortable, at ease, and explained in detail exactly what was to occur each step in the process. She continually checked my pain level while ensuring that the treatment was thorough enough to get the job done. I found the CO2RE® Intima rarely painful. What is amazing is that I am, definitely, noticing that the dryness is diminishing. I had 2 treatments and then she introduced me to PRP which many call the O shot. The procedure uses the patients’ drawn blood to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation. Platelets extracted from the blood, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), are then placed in a syringe and injected into an area near the clitoris and an area just inside the vagina. Those platelets then stimulate the growth of new cells in the injected areas, making those areas more sensitive to the touch. I won’t know the outcome until week 2 or 3. Dr. Shanthala, most likely, has more experience and knowledge of the CO2RE® Intima and PRP than the many of the doctors performing in the Boston area. Dr. Shanthala is that rare physician that has a gentle spirit, an impressive knowledge base of various state-of-the-art treatments available, and a pricing model that allows one to afford the much-needed care. Regardless of where you live, she’s worth the drive. Hands down the best experience I could have asked for. Cynthia

No more accidents. Still have to run to the bathroom, but now I can hold it!!!!!!

The other results have also been beautiful. My vagina no longer looks decrepit. The skin looks more supple I have more moisture which has also led to better sex. By far one of the best decisions I have made in a long time!! Thanks to Dr. Shanthala

Amazing!! O-shot and CO2RE Intima

In one word, Amazing!!! the procedure doesn’t hurt, it last only a few minutes and you come out as a new woman. If you don’t need the treatment she is honest with you and she lest you know, she doesn’t make lose your money in something that will not be with good results, she likes perfection in all her works.

Dr. Shanthala is awesome!

Shanthala is awesome!  Not only is she an MD but she is caring and gracious.  She makes sure that you understand all treatment options and recommends what is best for you.  I initially went to one of the franchises and it was very sales oriented with junior staff as the primary people you interact with.  You will have the totally opposite experience with Shanthala AND the treatments really work!  She cares from the minute you walk into her medspa, throughout the entire treatment and after.  It amazes me that she has such fantastic bedside manner, as I have not experienced that very often with many doctors.  Don’t waste your time going anywhere else!

she is amazing.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Shanthala, she is amazing. I have had several treatments with her but this review is specifically touting her expertise with Botox. A few years ago I decided I wanted to try some botox, my kids had been asking me “why are you making a mad face mommy?” – I realized I was getting some serious lines between my eyebrows. I went to a local RN and initially though she had a done a good job until I realized that my eyebrows were completely spread apart, and my entire forehead frozen, I didn’t even look like myself, it was terrible. I also had a lot of bruising which at the time, not knowing any better,  I thought was normal. Flash forward a year and to a visit to Shanthala for microdermabrasion and she suggested I try botox again. She explained her method and promised I would not have that same frozen look. Shanthala suggests that botox should be done more frequently but with less amounts (units) than others use. The other thing she does is she administers the botox in far more locations, smaller amounts but spread out more. She also noticed a vein down the middle of my forehead and was sure to avoid it to prevent bruising. I can’t tell you how many people I now notice that have had horrible botox treatments. It is so distracting while having a conversation! With Shanthala’s skilled hand my wrinkles are gone, my face looks relaxed and smooth, and I look like a better version of myself. She is a genius!

Dr. Shanthala is wonderful! She takes the time to explain all of the skin care options she offers in great detail and makes you feel like you are truly important to her. The office is very relaxing and comfortable, and the staff is always so welcoming and warm. I highly recommend her practice!!

You can trust both her judgement and skill.

She is a wonderful provider and will not do anything she isn’t 100  percent sure that you need and would benefit from. That is so very rare in this field.
You would be hard pressed to find someone who will take the time she takes and talk you out of just as many things as others will talk you into. You can trust both her judgement and skill.
She doesn’t run this as a business as much as a partnership with you – for you. I can’t say enough about her that’s positive.

She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.

From the moment I met Dr. Shanthala, I could see that this woman exudes CLASS.  She has the most professional and caring demeanor. She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.  This is a very knowledgeable woman. Did I mention that she is a doctor?! Not only does she perform all procedures with the utmost care, but she also is very aware of sterile technique. As a Registered Nurse, I find this trait very appealing. She takes the time to educate each of her patients and makes them feel completely comfortable before she proceeds with any treatment.

After consulting with Dr. Shanthala, I decided on micro needling. As a woman in my early 40s, I am starting to see uneven skin tones, sagginess and fine wrinkles around my eyes, forehead and laugh lines. What I love about the micro needling is that it is an all-in-one type of procedure. It helps with wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tightening, large pores and acne. I have had 2 treatments and have already seen remarkable improvements in my skin. I notice less wrinkle lines, a smoother appearance and more even skin tones.  The best part is there is no down time for this procedure. Before visiting her med spa, I was on an acne medicine for years. Since I have been seeing Dr. Shanthala, I ‘ve been able to stop taking this medication! My skin has never looked better.

I can honestly say that Dr. Shanthala has become one of my favorite people. She is passionate about what she does and her customer service is impeccable. I absolutely love going to her medical spa. The ambiance is inviting, the care is top-notch and the staff is supportive, inviting and caring. Take my advice and experience it for yourself. I can promise, you will not be disappointed!

Thanks to Dr. Shanthala

After years of urinary incontinence, I finally decided to see if there was a non invasive core. Rushing to the bathroom at the end of a meeting, on the way home from work or after a flight always resulted in a me peeing myself just enough to be uncomfortable for the rest of the day. After researching online I saw something for the O-Shot and thought I would give it a whirl. The only thing that freaked me out is that it seems fairly new (last 5 -10 years). I also wanted to make sure the Dr. performed a few of these procedures regularly. I found 2 in my area and decided to go with Dr. Shanthala. Not only, was she skilled, informative and warm she also took the time which is uncommon in today’s world. After discussing my issues, we thought it would be best if I paired he O- Shot and CO2RE Intima laser together. She recommended 3 sessions. I am 2 sessions in and the results are amazing. No more accidents. Still have to run to the bathroom, but now I can hold it!!!!!!

The other results have also been beautiful. My vagina no longer looks decrepit. The skin looks more supple I have more moisture which has also led to better sex. By far one of the best decisions I have made in a long time!! Thanks to Dr. Shanthala

Dr. Shanthala is an amazing physician

Dr. Shanthala is an amazing physician and true artist who cares deeply about her work and her patients. I felt as if I were at a spa with the level of pampering and personal attention that I received from both the doctor and her staff. From my consultation appointment to my actual procedure, I knew that I was in good hands. Dr. Shanthala listened to my concerns and wants before recommending the procedures that would give me the exact look I desired. I am thrilled with the outcome and am looking forward to returning to her wonderful practice.

The results were fantastic.

I want to review ShanthalaMD Med Spa from a different prospective.
Everyone knows someone that has had breast cancer and had chemotherapy. Many women also have hysterectomies to stop the flow of estrogen that can fuel the cancer. When this happens to someone young (and someone not so young) it can have a negative impact on their ability to have intimacy.
This was a problem for me. I was happy to be alive and accepted the changes that occurred…after all, I was cured of cancer. But, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse and difficulties with intimacy weighed heavily on me and my husband.
I want to shout, shout, shout out to the world…I have found a simple solution for me…
CO2RE is a laser procedure that restores vaginal tone and treats dryness. I had a series of three treatments at ShanthalaMD and I am thrilled with the results. Even after the first treatment I noticed improvement. Each treatment only lasted about 10-15 minutes and was essentially painless. I also saw a great improvement with urinary symptoms…leaking urine essentially stopped.
Dr. Shanthala did the procedure herself and was very respectful and professional. It was not an unpleasant or painful procedure and was really fast.
The results were fantastic. I (and my husband) am very happy.
I will be returning to ShanthalaMD to have the PRP shot treatment that is non surgical. It helps with sexual response.
So there it is, I couldn’t be happier. Thank You Dr. Shanthala

Have been seeing Dr. Shanthala for almost two years. Each visit being better than the last. She consistently exceeds my expectations. She is extremely knowledgeable and provides a very thorough and honest overview of the benefits, costs and length of any and all treatments that I inquire about.  There is zero pressure, EVER, and she simply gives me the information for me to make the decisions based on my concerns alone. The atmosphere of her office is comfortable and her presence is empathetic, calming and so positive!!! She is by far one of the most genuinely sincere, intelligent and talented people I have ever had the pleasure to know.  If you are considering any treatments visit with Dr. Shanthala, who will give you honest answers!

Worldclass

I was a beauty writer/editor for various magazines years ago including Vogue, Allure, etc. I’ve therefore had access to the best doctors, beauty treatments and beauty professionals in the world, from New York to Los Angeles to Miami to Paris to London and so on. Essentially, I was a guinea pig for everything trending in aesthetics for a very long time. When I recently moved/returned to the North Shore, I was convinced my days of sophisticated beauty treatments were over. And then I found Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa. Since I gave birth a year ago, she has helped me recover the youth and prettiness I was certain I’d lost forever in the hospital delivery room. She is the real deal. Again, I say this as someone who has had experience with truly the best. I see her monthly now for fun little nips and jabs and scrapes and removals and all manner of mechanical and laser applications and I trust her entirely with the fine tuning of both my face and body. She has more trendy and proven beauty technology in her spa then anyone in Boston, by far. And she has personally trained with all the legends in the business. I am a complete snob. I am not ashamed to admit this. Here, my snobbishness and extremely high standards and rare experience in this field, should lend some credibility to my opinion. She is one of a kind. I reluctantly share this review/my secret because she is such a diamond in the rough and my life would be better if she has less traffic in her office and could see me at my whim. (Which, in truth, she basically does. Me and, it seems, many of her beloved clients whom she cares for like a little girl does her most treasured and beautiful dolls.)

Dr Shanthala Shivananjappa is a jewel at her med spa in Peabody! I recently visited her spa for my very first fillers.I had my lip line and depressions under my eyes filled. She is professional,knowledgeable and very skilled. My procedure was totally pain free and I have been enjoying the results every day! What a difference! I have been back twice since them for endymed tightening as well as calculating.Can you tell that I am hooked! Each time I have been there both Shanthala and her assistant Torry have been so warm and welcoming, I don’t believe I would have been treated with more patience and care if I had been family. Love the environment she has created and plan to return. You won’t be disappointed!

EndyMed intensif and Botox / filler for necklace lines on neck

Dr Shanthala and her staff are five star! Extremely professional and friendly. I had the endymed three deep intensif for undereye and neck lines. The procedure was quick and painless. Its only been two weeks and I already see improvement. I also had Botox and filler for necklace lines. I have hated these lines for ten plus years. They are drastically smoothed and much less noticeable! I can’t believe the difference. I wish I had gone to Dr. Shanthala years ago! I am really excited for my next treatment and so happy to have found the practice. Life changing!!

Great atmosphere and great staff

I am a male approaching 40 yrs old and I have been a patient of Dr Shanthala for approx 15 months. Dr. Shanthala is very talented at the craft of aesthetic enhancement! She meets your expectations with experience as well as creative and realistic insight and does not over- promise and under- deliver, like some other doctors and professionals. I was new to the whole botox treatment plan and only decided to follow through because of the lines in my forehead and the angry lines in my brow. People were asking me if I was angry at them, when I was only starring off in their direction lol. I also had a very special event ahead of me and I wanted to stop the progressive nature of the deep lines and soften the skin up a little. Dr Shanthala starts treatments off slow and gets to know both her patients skin as well as their personality and tolerance for different treatments. It is not a high pressure place and as the patient you begin to learn more each time as the doctor tailors a plan or just makes suggestions based on your unique facial canvas. The atmosphere is professional but relaxed and fun. Coming from someone that lifted weights and laid in the sun and tanning booth for years, I wanted to make a change and slow down the aging process as part of my mini mid life crisis.HA. Dr Shanthala is the best doctor to be a part of that process with her experience, honesty, and humor! You don’t have to be a woman or even a man that wears a suit and tie to work everyday, in order to want to look a little more polished!

Amazing!!!!

My mom has always said, “you get what you pay for.” So if you’re looking for a cheap and quick fix, then keep looking. When it comes to my health and beauty regime, I’ve done my research, and Dr. Shanthala is well worth the price to pay. Well versed in her practice and being completely in tune to my needs, you are sure to step into the hands of someone who listens and honestly recommends according to your current needs. I’ve felt every purchase of treatment I’ve made, well worth the time and price with Shanthala; she will not sell you on something you don’t need. This is not a medspa factory, and you are not a medical record number. Consider yourself a lifetime investment, because that is what Shanthala is about; you will not find a more individualized, passionate, and approachable Doctor around.

extremely satisfied with the outcome

I started noticing lines in my forehead and did not like what I saw. I called Dr Shanthala….as a friend had treatments done there and was extremely satisfied with the outcome….and went in. Imagine my surprise at how warm and welcoming they were. I do have to say I was a bit apprehensive…but the staff, including Dr Shanthala made me feel comfortable. The thing that really surprised me was that I wanted to do Botox in a few areas but Dr Shanthala stated I did not need it done in all those areas. She proceeded with the Botox, only where she felt it was needed, and I cannot thank her enough!! Not only do I look 10 years younger, but I’m still aghast that unlike most other spas, the Doctor did not perform a treatment that she felt I did not need. If you are thinking of Botox, or any other treatment, please seek out Dr Shanthala. You will be happy you did.

You can trust both her judgement and skill.

She is a wonderful provider and will not do anything she isn’t 100  percent sure that you need and would benefit from. That is so very rare in this field.
You would be hard pressed to find someone who will take the time she takes and talk you out of just as many things as others will talk you into. You can trust both her judgement and skill.
She doesn’t run this as a business as much as a partnership with you – for you. I can’t say enough about her that’s positive.

Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING!

I went to see Dr. Shanthala a month before my sister’s wedding. I recently had a baby and am still very much over weight and so my self esteem was at an all time low. Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING! She spent a really long time with me, making sure we pick the absolute best treatment. Never once did I feel pressured into anything unnecessary (if anything, she kept telling me I don’t need things done!) and the results are beyond my expectations! I feel like myself again.

Now I look bright and awake.

I always had hollow areas on my face and looked drawn and tired. I constantly changed my make-up because I was never pleased with my looks Since having ultherapy and fillers at Shanthala MD, the hollow is gone and I have a soft fullness in my face. Now I look bright and awake. The look is subtle and effective. Perfect!

I am so happy with the results

I recently had a microdermabrasion and laser facial treatment at Shanthala MD MedSpa. I am so happy with the results that I felt I must share. First, let me say that she is not your typical injector or laser operator, she is a doctor with a wealth of knowledge and a genuinely caring and compassionate person. She spent a lot of time educating me on her different procedures and walked me through her spectacular facility, which alone, blew me away. The laser procedure took muchpatience on her end and she even had her staff run out for goodies as I was there for a long period. She was a pure perfectionist while dotting over me and the results were just as she described. I love looking at my glowing skin in the mirror and touching my face to feel how soft and smooth and lovely the texture is………amazing results & totally worth the investment!! You must meet Shantala and experience her treatments firsthand. Once you do, you will never go anywhere else!! P.S. Thank you Dr. Shanthala!

I had no pain or bruising with my fillers

This was my first experience with having Botox and filler’s It was a personal decision that I made for myself.  Dr Shanthala made me feel so comfortable and validated what I was feeling when I looked at myself in the mirror.  She was not only acting as a Physician about to do a procedure but she also educated me as to what I was looking for and why. She also told me what I can do on my own to continue to achieve the look that I wanted. The experience itself was amazing I had no pain and no bruising.  I am so pleased with the results that I always have a smile on my face.  A smile is not because I’m happy with how I look like on the outside but rather how I am feeling on the inside thanks to Dr. Shanthala.

Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does,

I have been going here for about a year now, I have acne prone skin and a lot of scaring, they were very honest as to what can be done for my scaring and acne. I do peels and microdermabrasion on the regular and my skin has never looked or felt better! Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does, she really believes in her work. Dorothy is also wonderful and does a great job with my peels and micro. I have a few clients that I sent to Dr Shanthala and they have done many different procedures such as Botox, fillers and lip augmentations and they all said amazing things!

I recently went to ShanthalaMD,Medspa and Laser Center to request an evaluation on what can be done to enhance my appearance.I am 60 years old and take very good care of  my body and skin and was really disliking the biological aging process no matter how good you take care of your skin you can’t stop the aging process.After a thorough evaluation and informing/teaching me about the newest procedures out there…we decided to go with Instalift and juvaderm,since I have  sagging on my lower face area.She has a”good eye” and knows  just by looking at you what will be best for you to enhance your appearance.There was no pain with the juvaderm(filler) and with the instalift I felt a pinching sensation for a few seconds,very tolerable.The results were  “instant”.It was amazing!I then went back to my activities of daily living…no pain,redness,swelling or soreness.Her bedside manner was very comforting,supportive and gentle.She is accurate and precise.Her work is phenomenal and  it shows.She is  highly educated and is there for YOU!Her Medspa  on the Northshore in Peabody ,Mass. is beautiful and immaculate.I would highly recommend her to all!!!Her clientele adores her and so will you!!!!!

Thank you for helping me be my best! You’re the best!

One word sums up my experience with Dr. Shanthala – AMAZING!  She is thoughtful, patient and took time to answer my many questions.  I initially went to her for botox but after spending over an hour with me and helping me to understand what I really wanted WE decided to do Kybella.  I have always been self conscious of my chins :).  I have had two treatments and the results are amazing!  I am so grateful that I found Dr. Shanthala and will not go to another doctor.  Thank you for helping me be my best!  You’re the best!

Dr.Shanthala, in her knowledgeable and trusting way convinced me to try the O Shot.

Imagine the trust that one must have to allow access to your vaginal area.
Shanthala, in her knowledgeable and trusting way convinced me to try the O Shot.
It has been fantastic! Having gone through menopause, all my desire had diminished, and there was pain with sex.
My sexual desire is back AND I feel like I am a 25 year old.
Highly highly recommend Shanthala MD!

Amazing results beyond my expectations

Excellent with positive results! Dr. Shanthala took her time to explain all of my options and the results were noticeable in about two weeks from my Botox injections. Her office also made a follow-up phone call after my appointment to check on me which had not happened with the another doctor’s office I had visited. Such a warm atmosphere it just makes you feel so comfortable. I would recommned this Medspa to family and firends.

Love love love Shanthala MD Medspa and Laser Center

I can not say more positive things about Dr. Shanthala and her staff. Dr. Shanthalas amazing bedside manner, expert technique, education and ability to listen makes her results exactly what you envisioned. She goes above and beyond to make sure your results are breathtaking. I have been a patient of hers for over a year and every experience is undoubtedly delightful (its insane that she can make needles a “delightful” experience). If you are looking for the perfect place for your first time Botox treatment or looking for more attention to details this is where you need to be. I would recommend Shanthala MD Medspa and Laser Center to anyone who wants amazing results.

Expert Treatments!

I have been a patient of Dr. Shanthala for the past two years. Each visit has been even better than the last. Dr. Shanthala’s office is beautiful and a wonderful environment for each treatment. Dr. Shanthala has always provided the most expert advice on options and her skills with treatments is amazing. I have been incredibly pleased with the results. With each treatment (facials, injections, etc.) I have felt that the results looked completely natural and that my skin’s appearance was improved. I recommend Dr. Shanthala completely.

Clear & Brilliant & Under-eye treatment

Over time, because of my under eye hollows and hyper pigmentation I had become wary of being photographed. But thanks to Dr Shanthala this is not the case any more. She put together a plan for treatment that included a series of Clear and Brilliant treatments as well as micro needling sessions. The results have been amazing!! I cannot afford too much down time and this worked perfectly for me. I found Dr Shanthala to be a consummate professional and an expert in her field. I recommend her highly!!

Kybella has sharpened my jaw line and my profile looks great.

I’m a 48 yr old women with concerns with my double chin that has been getting worse as I age. I discussed Kybella with Dr. Shanthala and felt very comfortable after our discussion. I had a total of three sessions over a 8 month period. There is swelling involved after the procedure and mild bruising but they only last about a week. Overall I am very happy with the outcome, I feel it has sharpened my jaw line and my profile looks great. In regard to Dr. Shanthala I think she is wonderful, she takes the time to discuss what options are available and I’ve always felt that she has my best interest in mind. I’ve also had fillers and botox with Dr. Shanthala, both worked great. The fillers really opened my eyes up, many people noticed the change, said I looked fresher. Thank you Dr. Shanthala for everything you have done for me. jeanelle

Clear and brilliant laser – beautiful results!

I bought a package of clear and brilliant laser treatments. I’ve had three so far and I love it. I haven’t experienced any down time other than some redness but that is gone by the following day. The effect has been really beautiful. My skin is very clear and glowing. The best thing about Dr. Shanthala is that she always listens and understands what I consider my problem areas. She also guides me in the right direction and will tell me when a procedure doesn’t make sense. I love how honest and caring she is. Her and I are going to have a long relationship!

Worldclass

I was a beauty writer/editor for various magazines years ago including Vogue, Allure, etc. I’ve therefore had access to the best doctors, beauty treatments and beauty professionals in the world, from New York to Los Angeles to Miami to Paris to London and so on. Essentially, I was a guinea pig for everything trending in aesthetics for a very long time. When I recently moved/returned to the North Shore, I was convinced my days of sophisticated beauty treatments were over. And then I found Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa. Since I gave birth a year ago, she has helped me recover the youth and prettiness I was certain I’d lost forever in the hospital delivery room. She is the real deal. Again, I say this as someone who has had experience with truly the best. I see her monthly now for fun little nips and jabs and scrapes and removals and all manner of mechanical and laser applications and I trust her entirely with the fine tuning of both my face and body. She has more trendy and proven beauty technology in her spa then anyone in Boston, by far. And she has personally trained with all the legends in the business. I am a complete snob. I am not ashamed to admit this. Here, my snobbishness and extremely high standards and rare experience in this field, should lend some credibility to my opinion. She is one of a kind. I reluctantly share this review/my secret because she is such a diamond in the rough and my life would be better if she has less traffic in her office and could see me at my whim. (Which, in truth, she basically does. Me and, it seems, many of her beloved clients whom she cares for like a little girl does her most treasured and beautiful dolls.)

Great Results With Juvederm Ultra Plus

I wanted to increase the volume of my lips and create a more defined Cupid’s bow. I had amazing results with juvederm ultra plus lip fillers. My lips are much more plump, full and shiny as I stay hydrated and exfoliate my lips often. Dr Shanthala is very talented!! I’m very happy with my results and will continue to return for maintenance!

Wonderful doctor wonderful location. I went to have fillers and after a consultation it turned out I had laser and was more than happy with the work Dr. Shanthala performed. She is genuine and is caring and absolutely wonderful at what she does. She takes the time to be with you and wants to hear your expectations and truly wants you to look and feel your best. You will only be glad you have her as your doctor no matter what you may desire.

Thank you for all your help Dr Shanthala Shivananjappa!

OK so after a lot of research and going back and forth and reading… And rereading… The reviews I decided to for a consultation for ulthera.
I read the bad and the good and the.. Eh. I was scared because of the bad reviews and worried about the eh reviews too because I didn’t want to waste money… But mostly I was afraid when I read some of the horror stories.
Many people believe that the bad stories are planted by competitors and some believe the same about the good ones as well.. So where does that leave you and I? Well we have to sift through the wreckage and make a decision. I really put thought into all this and what I have come up …
I think many of the reviews on both sides are valid and true… I think many people have been hurt and many have had not too much improvement and many have had amazing results. I think most of the difference lies in who does it. And I don’t think that just because someone is an MD or PS it will guarantee anything. Sure it’s better to have a doctor then a technician… However.. I have had some very very bad doctors. I can go on and on about that.. But I won’t because I will get off topic. Maybe I’ll submit some more reviews so you can see what I have been through.. It’s God awful.
So I believe.. Now more then ever.. It’s totally dependent on who does this procedure and research is vital to find that person.
With all this in mind.. When I read about Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa after moving to the area, I figured a consult couldn’t hurt.
I was impressed with the time she took to eleviate any concerns plus knowing she herself had the procedure done made me feel better. She is very beautiful.
I was immediately put at ease and decided that I would roll the dice.
I am very happy I did. It was exactly what I needed and I have complete trust in her. If you meet her you’ll see why I say that.. I have also since had fillers and botox and plan on having more.
The results so far have been great and I look forward to even more improvement. I can see how this is not a cure all for everyone but… It certainly gave me exactly what I was looking for and I believe this doctor would have definitely steered me away if she felt it would not work for me. She is that honest… And it’s a great therapy.. Just please please do your research before doing this with just anyone. Thank you for all your help Shanthala Shivananjappa!

Wonderful doctor and practice! – Peabody, MA

Dr. Shanthala is an amazing physician and true artist who cares deeply about her work and her patients. I felt as if I were at a spa with the level of pampering and personal attention that I received from both the doctor and her staff. From my consultation appointment to my actual procedure, I knew that I was in good hands. Dr. Shanthala listened to my concerns and wants before recommending the procedures that would give me the exact look I desired. I am thrilled with the outcome and am looking forward to returning to her wonderful practice.

Over 60 and Sagging/endymed/cool sculpting/fillers

Dr Shanthala Shivananjappa is a jewel at her med spa in Peabody! I recently visited her spa for my very first fillers.I had my lip line and depressions under my eyes filled. She is professional,knowledgeable and very skilled. My procedure was totally pain free and I have been enjoying the results every day! What a difference! I have been back twice since them for endymed tightening as well as calculating.Can you tell that I am hooked! Each time I have been there both Shanthala and her assistant Torry have been so warm and welcoming, I don’t believe I would have been treated with more patience and care if I had been family. Love the environment she has created and plan to return. You won’t be disappointed!

My experience was top rate.

I have gone to many places for my botox and fillers but none of them can come to close to how good Dr. Shanthala is. I went to her because I was starting to get vertical lines above my lip and without much pain pouf they were gone. She is so kind and makes time to speak to you about you want to achieve. My face is in her hands from now on.

A phenomenal experience !!

5 stars is not enough for this doctor ! She is knowledgeable, caring and extremely talented. I have severe facial asymmetry that she was able to correct with filler. I saw numerous doctors that were never able to correct it. She was able to do it on one visit. I am thrilled! I would highly recommend this doctor. She’s a top notch doctor with reasonable prices and the spa is gorgeous.

Extremely Knowledgeable, Patient-Oriented, Dedicated Caring Physician! Outstanding!

Dr. Shivananjappa is one of the most knowledgeable & patient-dedicated physicians whom I have ever met! She is an outstanding physician whom specializes in the practice of aesthetic rejuvenation, using the latest technologies and fillers in her practice. She has invested in the latest technologies in her practice. More important, she had taken the time to become thoroughly educated in the use of every technology that she offers in her practice. She is very hands-on and unlike many other doctors does not rely upon her aestheticians to use the technology without her supervision. She is the only physician, amongst four other doctors whom I had consultations, who dedicated the time to explain to me in detail, with the use of anatomical drawings of the structure of the face. She is also the only physician whom I have had a consultation with that explained which treatment and why that treatment would produce the best outcome for me based on my facial structure & skin texture and what I wanted to achieve. She thoroughly explains exactly which brand of filler should be used for the treatment of fine lines, the tear troughs, the nasal labial folds, and facial contouring & lip lines. Every question I asked, she answered thoroughly & thoughtfully. She is extremely honest & does sell or push the use of any filler or treatment unless she feels that it will be efficacious. For example, during our first visit, I wanted to have fillers injected in my upper cheeks for facial contouring. She told me that I would be wasting my money & that I should wait another four months. She spends as much time as each of her patients requires. She never rushes either her patients or herself. She really cares about her patients and her patients care about her. Her office is immaculate & extremely relaxing. I recommend Dr. Shivananjappa without hesitation. She is amongst the “best of the best” amongst physicians practicing aesthetic rejuvenation. She is a rare jewel of a physician!

I have been a patient at Dr. Shanthala’s Med Spa for two years. I wouldn’t dream of letting anyone touch my face with fillers or Botox besides Dr. Shanthala. Why drive into Boston when Dr. Shanthala’s meticulous expertise is right here in Peabody, MA. She is truly amazing. You won’t regret it!! I highly recommend it!

A different league for this area

What this doctor reminds me of is something one only usually finds on the west coast. I have had countless treatments. You have the ability to forge an ongoing relationship and truly make changes that she is interested in, every bit as much as you are. You can go to her quite often and get evaluated from head to toe and take steps to partner up with her to make those changes. She doesn’t sell you something she doesn’t believe in. I can’t say enough about her that’s good. If you haven’t tried clear and brilliant do so! Make sure you pick the right doctor though!

Lines Around Mouth and Downward Turned Corners of Mouth, Double Chin, No Volume in Cheek Area, 48 Year Old Female

I had Restylane Refyne around my mouth area. It significantly smoothed out the fine lines and wrinkles and made my lips look full and natural. What an incredible difference. She made my mouth look 10 years younger! I had Kybella for my double chin. After completing two treatments (4-6 wks apart), I look like a new person. It improved my profile dramatically and took years off of my overall look. I had Radiasse for my cheeks to add some volume in that area. The result was incredible. It makes me look years younger!

Great experience always thankful

She is amazing, patient kind and gentle. I had some serious scaring do to acne and life and she helped me first control my acne then working on my scars. She was honest with me and never led me in a direction that was more costly with no results. I was able to wear an open back sleeveless gown for my wedding and I’m forever thankful to her for that. She also does a wide variety of services that people love!

Wonderful Doctor

Dr. Shanthala is the sweetest, the most caring, and extremely patient physician I’ve ever met! She did not rush me with anything. She’d spent a lot of time examining my facial features from every angle to make sure she understood all of my concerns and discussed with me the best possible solutions for the amount of $ I was able to spend at the time. We did some botox and fillers here and there and surprisingly I didn’t bruise at all, and I bruise easily!

Amazing experience and results with fillers, botox, and many more.

Dr. Shanthala offers an extensive variety of cosmetic treatments and is meticulous in every step of the procedure, always making sure the patient is comfortable and well informed. I’ve had botox, fillers, facial thread lifts and coolsculpting over many years and give her my highest recommendation.

A master– the best there is.

Sometimes you come across a physician who does more than just “what you asked for”. Sometimes you come across a physician who truly listens to you, PAYS real attention, and actually cares. Dr Shanthala is not only a genius at what she does, she is a caring and kind professional who I not only respect but who I look forward to seeing and talking with. Sometimes you come across a physician who is one in a million. And that has been my experience with Dr Shanthala.

No Sausage Lips here!

I have been searching for a doctor with the aesthetic I have been looking for when it comes to lip injections. Didn’t want the duck lips, or sausage lips, just something more full, but natural, that works with the symmetry of my face. I needed to find someone who was an artist, someone who has the knowledge when it comes to the anatomy of the face, and understands what works for one doesn’t always work for another. I desired somewhat of a perfectionist like myself. Thought I would never find what I was looking for but I certainly did! Dr. S LISTENED to my needs, she didn’t try to talk me into something I wouldn’t want (matter of fact she talked me out of something else I wanted) I respect her professional opinion and the fact that she said that I didn’t “need” something speaks to her integrity, heart and love for her profession and her clients. In a world filled with too much fillers, she believes in “less is more”. Im not surprised she has so many 5 star reviews. I felt comfortable, she’s funny and easy to talk to! Dr.S is very informative and answered all questions I had. Her staff is kind and polite, they called me 2 days after to see how I was doing and also to let me know that if I had any questions I could call the Dr. I could go on and on about such an amazing woman with such talent and grace. What a wonderful experience, book with Dr. S and see for yourself. YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!!

The woman is a genius.

Dr. Shanthala is AMAZING. I have been getting fillers and botox for over 10 years before discovering Dr. Shanthala and I wish I had found her years ago. My prior physicians were good, but Dr. Shanthala is just on a whole other level of expertise and patient care. I will cut to the chase—you will walk out of there feeling beautiful and having made a friend for life. Dr. Shanthala is the kindest, most caring soul I have ever come across in the medical community. I trust her with my face, skin and body (she also offers cool-sculpting). I was nervous to try someone new (the reason I did was because we re-located to Boston from another big city) but I cannot imagine going to anyone else. She will assess you in the kindest possible way and she puts you first. She will not recommend anything you do not need and in my case she talked me out of doing things I didn’t need. She is an artist. She takes her time and sees you in a way you’ve probably not seen yourself before. She assessed symmetry, skin-condition, everything. My lips look gorgeous. Plumper but very, very natural. My pores look much smaller after only one hydra-facial (which surprised me bc they were huge). The botox looks great and we are devising a long-term treatment plan for my skin. She also gave me wonderful advice and a treatment plan for hair loss. I never write reviews. I think this is my first review ever. I am writing it because when you are looking for someone it can be scary , especially when it comes to your face. I hope this helps others who are in the same boat. I kinda found her by accident and read her reviews which were amazing. I am adding mine because she is just that good. I hope it’s been helpful.

Skin Tightening – Yes Please!

The staff at ShanthalaMD is by far the friendliest and most inviting individuals I have met in a medical setting. They make you feel right at home as soon as you walk in. I’m always greeted with a warm smile, offered tea or coffee, etc.
The skin tightening is very effective but you do have to commit to weekly treatments for a short period to see results! Absolutely worth it. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to really improve the appearance of their skin. I decided to get skin tightening treatments for my body. I exercise regularly and eat well but I wanted to further contour my figure.
Aesthetics are very important to me and this is just one of the many options offered to me for my needs.

My appointment with Shanthala was a wonderful experience. She answered all my questions and was so kind and caring. I felt a very strong sense of trust. Shanthala was very honest about the amount of pain that I would be feeling. During the process, she was compassionate and so pleasant. I have already highly recommended her to friends. She is a lovely person and a great doctor. Thanks Shanthala. I really appreciate all that you have done for me.

Amazing Personalized Experience

Dr. Shanthala is a beautiful person, inside and out, and this is reflected in her practice, methods and results. She is meticulous and caring; which is a rare combination. You never feel rushed and always feel that you are important. She treats every person as an individual, and she subtly adjusts and accentuates each person’s own beauty. I am so happy with my decision to visit her. She has subtly filled in wrinkles and hollow spots on my face with fillers and recently I had a lower face Ultherapy session. When she uses fillers there are no glaringly obvious adjustments; so you just look well rested and radiant. I am so happy I found her.

Wouldn’t trust anyone else….Dr Shanthala is amazing.

I have been seeing Dr Shanthala for over a year now and she has provided me with several Clear and Brilliant treatments as well as botox and mircodermabrasion. Dr. Shanthala won me over from our first meeting when she asked and really listened to what my concerns were. She took the time to describe in depth what treatments she thought would be best for me, and most importantly, advised me against a few treatments I wanted as they would be ‘overkill’. Her approach of ‘start conservatively and add more if you need it’ is wonderful and has kept me looking fresh and bright but always natural – exactly the look I wanted to achieve. She is a true friend to her clients and strives to keep them happy. Her office is relaxing and warm and her staff is among the friendliest and most professional I have met – they always offer you tea and follow up with calls to make sure your care was exceptional (which is always is). I’m so glad I found Dr. Shathala as I trust her and no one else with my face.

Best experience

I have done a lot of research looking for the best doctor to deliver my botox and lip filler treatment. I am 29 y.o female looking to get ahead of the aging curve while maintaining a natural look. Dr. Shanthala is so meticulous and caring. I am a dentist so I can appreciate her great bedside manner, trustworthiness and attention to detail. I was so nervous about my post-op swelling/bruising but Dr. Shanthala reassured me and she was absolutely right- I had slight lip bruising for 2 days after- nothing that make up couldn’t fix. She is great with a needle I had the topical anesthetic on my lips and it was not bad at all. The botox was a complete breeze and had zero bruising. I have gone to Dr. Shanthala for 3 appointments and can’t imagine going to anyone else. Her office is comfortable and her staff extremely friendly and non-judgemental. I love that she takes before pictures for reference and she is extremely knowledgable on the musculature of the face. She is very thorough in her assessment and knows what the products can achieve. As a fellow clinician and extremely satisfied patient I highly recommend Dr. Shanthala! Thank you for a great experience!

A Whole New Me

I am 58 years old and I recently visited Dr. Shivananjappa at Shanthala MD Medspa & Laser Center to see if she could help to soften the lines on my my forehead (Eleven lines) and crows feet as well as the lines above my upper lip (Smokers lines). Dr. Shivananjappa used botox to treat the forehead and eye area and fillers in the lip area. The results are amazing and surpassed my expectations. The lines on the upper part of my face are greatly softened making me looked more relaxed. My outer brows are even slightly lifted which opens my eyes. To treat the lip area she used fillers around my lips – my lower lip has been slowly disappearing over the years. But voila! Dr. Shivananjappa magically sculpted them with a bit of filler and the results are spectacular. The change is not so drastic that other’s would notice but, the lines above my upper lip are barely noticeable. It is even easier to apply lip liner and lip stick because my lips have a defineable border that had all but disppeared. I would highly recommend Dr. Shivananjappa. She is well-trained at her craft, honest and trustworthy. Dr. Shivananjappa takes pride in her work and her assessments are spot on.

Great atmosphere and great staff

I am a male approaching 40 yrs old and I have been a patient of Dr Shanthala for approx 15 months. Dr. Shanthala is very talented at the craft of aesthetic enhancement! She meets your expectations with experience as well as creative and realistic insight and does not over- promise and under- deliver, like some other doctors and professionals. I was new to the whole botox treatment plan and only decided to follow through because of the lines in my forehead and the angry lines in my brow. People were asking me if I was angry at them, when I was only starring off in their direction lol. I also had a very special event ahead of me and I wanted to stop the progressive nature of the deep lines and soften the skin up a little. Dr Shanthala starts treatments off slow and gets to know both her patients skin as well as their personality and tolerance for different treatments. It is not a high pressure place and as the patient you begin to learn more each time as the doctor tailors a plan or just makes suggestions based on your unique facial canvas. The atmosphere is professional but relaxed and fun. Coming from someone that lifted weights and laid in the sun and tanning booth for years, I wanted to make a change and slow down the aging process as part of my mini mid life crisis.HA. Dr Shanthala is the best doctor to be a part of that process with her experience, honesty, and humor! You don’t have to be a woman or even a man that wears a suit and tie to work everyday, in order to want to look a little more polished!

Amazing experience with Restylane Under-eye Filler

I want to start off by saying Dr. Shanthala is amazing at what she does and she truly goes above and beyond for her patients! My experience with her was absolutely incredible and I would encourage anybody interested in Restylane Under-eye fillers to schedule a consolation with her. I plan to go back to her in the future for any of my cosmetic needs. She is SO amazing at what she does and I couldn’t be happier with my results. My personal experience: I am a 24 year-old female and this was my very first cosmetic procedure, so you can only imagine how nervous I was to have this done for the first time. I met with Dr. Shanthala for a consultation in March of 2018 since I had severely noticeable tear troughs. Although I am a younger adult, I would go to work every day and people would tell me that I looked extremely tired. It used to make me very sad hearing this, and I was extremely self-conscious of the large tear troughs on my face. After meeting with Dr. Shanthala for my consultation, I was absolutely ready to get the procedure done without hesitation. She talked me through every step of the way including the prep before and after the treatment. She explained the anatomy of my face and what fillers would work best for me. She calmed all of my nerves that I had, and I was SO excited to get the procedure done. I came back in April of 2018 to get the filler done and the whole process was absolutely amazing. Dr. Shanthala was extremely skilled, careful and comforting throughout the whole process. I followed the pre-treatment guidelines, so there was no bruising or swelling either (which was amazing!). It was a dream come true for me. I was SO excited to go back to work on Monday morning without the tear troughs anymore. Today being roughly one month after getting the treatment done, I couldn’t be happier with the results. I am able to confidently walk around without people telling me that I look extremely tired anymore!! I can’t thank Dr. Shanthala enough from the bottom of my heart. I am beyond blessed for having a Doctor like her in my life! Absolutely amazing experience.

Where else is anyone going to get one on one attention and procedure directly from a practicing MD? I had a few concerns about sagging in my face, hollowing in my eyes and Dr Shanthala only recommended what she thought would give me the most benefits- bottom line, i wanted a nice, subtle enhancement nothing “fake”, I walked away so happy, i did the novathreads , laser treatement and some fillers, no downtime, and the experience was private (I was the only patient), beautiful office and informative,I highly recommend anyone looking please look up Dr. Shanthala in Peabody Mass

Excellent Doctor

I had a very good experience with Shivananjappa. She is the most sensitive doctor I ever met. She really takes the time to hear what you want, what bothers you and why. She spent so much time with me to discuss what bothered me, gave me a bunch of options and the pros/cons of each and would not let me decide right there what i wanted to do. She wanted to give me time and provided me with material to research. I decided on coolsculpting and very happy with the results. I will continue to see Dr Shivananjappa.

Visiting Dr. Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best thing

Visiting Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best  thing I have done for my self in years. I have tried several medspa type businesses in the past. They were  all good, but often they did not stay on top of the latest, safest and best procedures. None of these medspas had the expertise of   Shanthala. They also were  more about volume of clients, where Shanthala is all about doing what is best, for you , her most important client of the moment. You feel this attitude.. Her approach and consultation are also comfortable for the client, honest detailed information , no high pressure tactics. She is constantly training and attending  conferences and classes. She in compassionate, highly intelligent, has a wonderful bedside manner, and a great sense of humor. She holds herself to the highest  standards. The environment is meticulous, and so inviting. She is informative, affable and professional. My skin looks great and I had a wonderful time visiting her office . I had a micro needling procedure. A week later my  skin looks so beautiful. I have already called to book another appointment. I live closer to Boston, but the skills, service and experience of visiting Shanthala are better, than those offered in  areas more convenient to my home.
Oh, I also stopped for an  amazing crepe  at New Art of Gelato, after my visit to Shanthala. What a perfect day. This gelato and crepe place is less than 5 minutes from Shanthala, and the food was delicious. I had a spinach tomato and goat cheese crepe, and  freshly made blueberry gelato . My trip to Peabody was completely worth the drive. I also had very little traffic,as I booked my appointment on a Saturday morning.  I am so happy I made the effort to visit Shanthala. My entire experience was positive. the trip to Peabody is also very easy , and her office is just off an exit.

Dr. Shanthala is awesome!

Shanthala is awesome!  Not only is she an MD but she is caring and gracious.  She makes sure that you understand all treatment options and recommends what is best for you.  I initially went to one of the franchises and it was very sales oriented with junior staff as the primary people you interact with.  You will have the totally opposite experience with Shanthala AND the treatments really work!  She cares from the minute you walk into her medspa, throughout the entire treatment and after.  It amazes me that she has such fantastic bedside manner, as I have not experienced that very often with many doctors.  Don’t waste your time going anywhere else!

She is truly a remarkable person and professional

I originally went to Dr Shivananjappa’s office after reading all of the reviews from acne patients as I have been struggling with adult acne.  The first time I called the office to make an appt. she actually got on the phone with me as I explained my issues and asked many questions about previous remedies and procedures I had tried over the years.  She spent almost an hour on the phone with me and was so personable yet very professional sharing with me what was possible and what may not be, etc.  I was very impressed with her after meeting for my first appointment and ended up staying after it chatting with her for over 45 mins about other things (like pets!).  She is a very warm yet professional person that made me feel at ease.  I actually ended up going back for a coolsculpt procedure and I simply cannot say enough about this wonderful person as well as how pleased I am with my results.  I’m lucky I live very close to her office but I would encourage anyone considering a procedure to go with Dr Shivananjappa even if you have to drive far!  I have never had such a personable experience with ANY doctor I have ever visited for anything.  She is truly a remarkable person and professional that truly cares about her patients.  Two thumbs up, 5 stars and my gratitude for the treatments she performed that have had such a positive effect on me.

extremely satisfied with the outcome

I started noticing lines in my forehead and did not like what I saw. I called Dr Shanthala….as a friend had treatments done there and was extremely satisfied with the outcome….and went in. Imagine my surprise at how warm and welcoming they were. I do have to say I was a bit apprehensive…but the staff, including Dr Shanthala made me feel comfortable. The thing that really surprised me was that I wanted to do Botox in a few areas but Dr Shanthala stated I did not need it done in all those areas. She proceeded with the Botox, only where she felt it was needed, and I cannot thank her enough!! Not only do I look 10 years younger, but I’m still aghast that unlike most other spas, the Doctor did not perform a treatment that she felt I did not need. If you are thinking of Botox, or any other treatment, please seek out Dr Shanthala. You will be happy you did.

I really appreciate everything Doctor Shanthala has done for me.

My experience with Dr Shanthala has been unlike  any other doctor experience I’ve had prior. Dr Shanthala spent over one hour with me in my initial consultation. She helped educate me about how the acne scars were formed and how different treatments can help with the scars. She is very understanding as this is a sensitive subject for me. Also very comforting when I was brought to tears after talking about my struggle! she even stayed late and did my first treatment the same night as my consultation because she truly cares and didn’t want me to be sad anymore! We came up with a plan that works for me and my type of acne scars (mostly rolling mixed with some other types) . I am only on my second month of treatment but I trust the doctor and our plan. We are trying subcision mixed with other treatments to treat the look of the scars. When we get to a certain point where I am satisfied then we will include bellafill for volume.

Overall, it’s important to trust your doctor and the plan.  You should do your research but let her do her job and don’t try and go there and be the doctor. DR. Shanthala has helped me  learn  that the treatment of acne scars will take time. I still have a long road ahead but I am already starting to feel more confident and care less about my acne scars because I know I am treating them.
I really appreciate everything Doctor Shanthala has done for me. She is very respectful , easy to talk to, caring, and a great listener. She really wants to help you. Since it’s her business she can take the time to treat you and come up with a plan that you feel comfortable with and that’s right for your type of acne scars!

Of note, I have previously tried non-ablative Fraxel Laser treatments suggested by a cosmetic dermatologist at a major hospital in Boston and was disappointed when there was no significant difference after the three recommended  treatments.

I hope this review helps at least one person that’s struggling with acne scars like me!

Dr. Shanthala is an amazing physician

Dr. Shanthala is an amazing physician and true artist who cares deeply about her work and her patients.  I felt as if I were at a spa with the level of pampering and personal attention that I received from both the doctor and her staff.  From my consultation appointment to my actual procedure, I knew that I was in good hands. Dr. Shanthala listened to my concerns and wants before recommending the procedures that would give me the exact look I desired. I am thrilled with the outcome and am looking forward to returning to her wonderful practice.

You can trust both her judgement and skill.

She is a wonderful provider and will not do anything she isn’t 100  percent sure that you need and would benefit from. That is so very rare in this field.
You would be hard pressed to find someone who will take the time she takes and talk you out of just as many things as others will talk you into. You can trust both her judgement and skill.
She doesn’t run this as a business as much as a partnership with you – for you. I can’t say enough about her that’s positive.

She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.

From the moment I met Dr. Shanthala, I could see that this woman exudes CLASS.  She has the most professional and caring demeanor. She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.  This is a very knowledgeable woman. Did I mention that she is a doctor?! Not only does she perform all procedures with the utmost care, but she also is very aware of sterile technique. As a Registered Nurse, I find this trait very appealing. She takes the time to educate each of her patients and makes them feel completely comfortable before she proceeds with any treatment.

After consulting with Dr. Shanthala, I decided on micro needling. As a woman in my early 40s, I am starting to see uneven skin tones, sagginess and fine wrinkles around my eyes, forehead and laugh lines. What I love about the micro needling is that it is an all-in-one type of procedure. It helps with wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tightening, large pores and acne. I have had 2 treatments and have already seen remarkable improvements in my skin. I notice less wrinkle lines, a smoother appearance and more even skin tones.  The best part is there is no down time for this procedure. Before visiting her med spa, I was on an acne medicine for years. Since I have been seeing Dr. Shanthala, I ‘ve been able to stop taking this medication! My skin has never looked better.

I can honestly say that Dr. Shanthala has become one of my favorite people. She is passionate about what she does and her customer service is impeccable. I absolutely love going to her medical spa. The ambiance is inviting, the care is top-notch and the staff is supportive, inviting and caring. Take my advice and experience it for yourself. I can promise, you will not be disappointed!

Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING!

I went to see Dr. Shanthala a month before my sister’s wedding. I recently had a baby and am still very much over weight and so my self esteem was at an all time low. Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING! She spent a really long time with me, making sure we pick the absolute best treatment. Never once did I feel pressured into anything unnecessary (if anything, she kept telling me I don’t need things done!) and the results are beyond my expectations! I feel like myself again. Thank you!!!

Now I look bright and awake.

I always had hollow areas on my face and looked drawn and tired. I constantly changed my make-up because I was never pleased with my looks Since having ultherapy and fillers at Shanthala MD, the hollow is gone and I have a soft fullness in my face. Now I look bright and awake. The look is subtle and effective. Perfect!

Thank you Dr. Shanthala,

I don’t usually write reviews but I just had to now. About 8 months ago, I got a facial filler done at a doctors office like I usually do a couple of times a year. This time though, something went terribly wrong. I’m not sure the what the medical term is for what happened to me, but it seems that the filler was injected into a blood vessel. What followed was horrible. Immediately, the left side of my face went numb and I developed a terrible infection that caused a horrible lesion, and my face to swell and look deformed. I temporarily lost my eye sight in my left eye and was in a lot of pain. I was scared and confused and seeked some answers or even help from the doctor that performed the treatment. To make a long story short, I called the office 5 times before the doctor called me back, only to tell me that I’ll be fine and to take some Advil. After 8 months, I still have numbness in my face and a scar from the lesion. I finally decided to consult Dr, Shanathala and get her opinion on whether I would ever be able to do anything to my face again. Call me crazy after what I went through, but at the end of the day, I am still a woman and aging concerns me like all of us. From the moment I walked in to her office, I felt the warmth and calm that she put out. She explained to me what happened to me and let me decide if I wanted to take things slow.
I wanted her to do a little filler again, so after 45 minutes of her explaining everything to me, she did, even though I was terrified, and I was thrilled with the results, and I got the courage to do things to my face again with her help.
Thank you Dr. Shanthala,
For being a human being, for showing compassion, for being a professional, for listening, for being amazing at your job, for loving what you do, and loving your patients,for not cutting corners, for being patient and all around for being a beautiful person.

Don’t hesitate to book with Dr Shanthala. She has a warm way about her that makes discussing options so easy. She actually listens and doesn’t “push”. I will be back for other procedures for sure.

I was recommended to see Dr. Shanthala

It’s rare to find a physician who will take the time to sit down and listen to your concerns and take the time to really understand who you are and what your specific needs are as a patient.

Here is a little bit about my experience with Dr. Shanthala: I was recommended to see Dr. Shanthala by a friend. I arrived a few minutes prior to the appointment, and she called me in for my consult right on time. We sat down to discuss what my particular needs are for skincare, and we discussed what I am currently doing for skincare. She gave me some great suggestions for skincare, and did a couple of treatments in the office. Throughout the experience, Dr. Shanthala’s truly caring personality was apparent, and it is clear that she wants the best for her patients.

Now, about a month out from my initial visit, I couldn’t be happier with the results. My skin looks great, and the treatment areas look youthful and natural.

I will be recommending Dr. Shanthala to my friends and family, and am looking forward to seeing her again.

I had no pain or bruising with my fillers

This was my first experience with having Botox and filler’s It was a personal decision that I made for myself.  Dr Shanthala made me feel so comfortable and validated what I was feeling when I looked at myself in the mirror.  She was not only acting as a Physician about to do a procedure but she also educated me as to what I was looking for and why. She also told me what I can do on my own to continue to achieve the look that I wanted. The experience itself was amazing I had no pain and no bruising.  I am so pleased with the results that I always have a smile on my face.  A smile is not because I’m happy with how I look like on the outside but rather how I am feeling on the inside thanks to Dr. Shanthala.

Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does,

I have been going here for about a year now, I have acne prone skin and a lot of scaring, they were very honest as to what can be done for my scaring and acne. I do peels and microdermabrasion on the regular and my skin has never looked or felt better! Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does, she really believes in her work. Dorothy is also wonderful and does a great job with my peels and micro. I have a few clients that I sent to Dr Shanthala and they have done many different procedures such as Botox, fillers and lip augmentations and they all said amazing things!

The results were fantastic.

I want to review ShanthalaMD Med Spa from a different prospective.
Everyone knows someone that has had breast cancer and had chemotherapy. Many women also have hysterectomies to stop the flow of estrogen that can fuel the cancer. When this happens to someone young (and someone not so young) it can have a negative impact on their ability to have intimacy.
This was a problem for me. I was happy to be alive and accepted the changes that occurred…after all, I was cured of cancer. But, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse and difficulties with intimacy weighed heavily on me and my husband.
I want to shout, shout, shout out to the world…I have found a simple solution for me…
CO2RE is a laser procedure that restores vaginal tone and treats dryness. I had a series of three treatments at ShanthalaMD and I am thrilled with the results. Even after the first treatment I noticed improvement. Each treatment only lasted about 10-15 minutes and was essentially painless. I also saw a great improvement with urinary symptoms…leaking urine essentially stopped.
Dr. Shanthala did the procedure herself and was very respectful and professional. It was not an unpleasant or painful procedure and was really fast.
The results were fantastic. I (and my husband) am very happy.
I will be returning to ShanthalaMD to have the PRP shot treatment that is non surgical. It helps with sexual response.
So there it is, I couldn’t be happier. Thank You Dr. Shanthala

Have been seeing Dr. Shanthala for almost two years. Each visit being better than the last. She consistently exceeds my expectations. She is extremely knowledgeable and provides a very thorough and honest overview of the benefits, costs and length of any and all treatments that I inquire about.  There is zero pressure, EVER, and she simply gives me the information for me to make the decisions based on my concerns alone. The atmosphere of her office is comfortable and her presence is empathetic, calming and so positive!!! She is by far one of the most genuinely sincere, intelligent and talented people I have ever had the pleasure to know.  If you are considering any treatments visit with Dr. Shanthala, who will give you honest answers!

Her clientele adores her and so will you!!!!!

I recently went to ShanthalaMD,Medspa and Laser Center to request an evaluation on what can be done to enhance my appearance.I am 60 years old and take very good care of  my body and skin and was really disliking the biological aging process no matter how good you take care of your skin you can’t stop the aging process.After a thorough evaluation and informing/teaching me about the newest procedures out there…we decided to go with Instalift and juvaderm,since I have  sagging on my lower face area.She has a”good eye” and knows  just by looking at you what will be best for you to enhance your appearance.There was no pain with the juvaderm(filler) and with the instalift I felt a pinching sensation for a few seconds,very tolerable.The results were  “instant”.It was amazing!I then went back to my activities of daily living…no pain,redness,swelling or soreness.Her bedside manner was very comforting,supportive and gentle.She is accurate and precise.Her work is phenomenal and  it shows.She is  highly educated and is there for YOU!Her Medspa  on the Northshore in Peabody ,Mass. is beautiful and immaculate.I would highly recommend her to all!!!Her clientele adores her and so will you!!!!!

One word sums up my experience with Dr. Shanthala – AMAZING!  She is thoughtful, patient and took time to answer my many questions.  I initially went to her for botox but after spending over an hour with me and helping me to understand what I really wanted WE decided to do Kybella.  I have always been self conscious of my chins :).  I have had two treatments and the results are amazing!  I am so grateful that I found Dr. Shanthala and will not go to another doctor.  Thank you for helping me be my best!  You’re the best!

Amazing results beyond my expectations

Excellent with positive results! Dr. Shanthala took her time to explain all of my options and the results were noticeable in about two weeks from my Botox injections. Her office also made a follow-up phone call after my appointment to check on me which had not happened with the another doctor’s office I had visited. Such a warm atmosphere it just makes you feel so comfortable. I would recommned this Medspa to family and firends.

I can not say more positive things about Dr. Shanthala and her staff. Dr. Shanthalas amazing bedside manner, expert technique, education and ability to listen makes her results exactly what you envisioned. She goes above and beyond to make sure your results are breathtaking. I have been a patient of hers for over a year and every experience is undoubtedly delightful (its insane that she can make needles a “delightful” experience). If you are looking for the perfect place for your first time Botox treatment or looking for more attention to details this is where you need to be. I would recommend Shanthala MD Medspa and Laser Center to anyone who wants amazing results.

I have been a patient of Dr. Shanthala for the past two years. Each visit has been even better than the last. Dr. Shanthala’s office is beautiful and a wonderful environment for each treatment. Dr. Shanthala has always provided the most expert advice on options and her skills with treatments is amazing. I have been incredibly pleased with the results.

Clear & Brilliant & Under-eye treatment

Over time, because of my under eye hollows and hyper pigmentation I had become wary of being photographed. But thanks to Dr Shanthala this is not the case any more. She put together a plan for treatment that included a series of Clear and Brilliant treatments as well as micro needling sessions. The results have been amazing!! I cannot afford too much down time and this worked perfectly for me. I found Dr Shanthala to be a consummate professional and an expert in her field. I recommend her highly!!

Kybella has sharpened my jaw line and my profile looks great.

I’m a 48 yr old women with concerns with my double chin that has been getting worse as I age. I discussed Kybella with Dr. Shanthala and felt very comfortable after our discussion. I had a total of three sessions over a 8 month period. There is swelling involved after the procedure and mild bruising but they only last about a week. Overall I am very happy with the outcome, I feel it has sharpened my jaw line and my profile looks great. In regard to Dr. Shanthala I think she is wonderful, she takes the time to discuss what options are available and I’ve always felt that she has my best interest in mind. I’ve also had fillers and botox with Dr. Shanthala, both worked great. The fillers really opened my eyes up, many people noticed the change, said I looked fresher. Thank you Dr. Shanthala for everything you have done for me. jeanelle

I bought a package of clear and brilliant laser treatments. I’ve had three so far and I love it. I haven’t experienced any down time other than some redness but that is gone by the following day. The effect has been really beautiful. My skin is very clear and glowing. The best thing about Dr. Shanthala is that she always listens and understands what I consider my problem areas. She also guides me in the right direction and will tell me when a procedure doesn’t make sense. I love how honest and caring she is. Her and I are going to have a long relationship!

Worldclass

I was a beauty writer/editor for various magazines years ago including Vogue, Allure, etc. I’ve therefore had access to the best doctors, beauty treatments and beauty professionals in the world, from New York to Los Angeles to Miami to Paris to London and so on. Essentially, I was a guinea pig for everything trending in aesthetics for a very long time. When I recently moved/returned to the North Shore, I was convinced my days of sophisticated beauty treatments were over. And then I found Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa. Since I gave birth a year ago, she has helped me recover the youth and prettiness I was certain I’d lost forever in the hospital delivery room. She is the real deal. Again, I say this as someone who has had experience with truly the best. I see her monthly now for fun little nips and jabs and scrapes and removals and all manner of mechanical and laser applications and I trust her entirely with the fine tuning of both my face and body. She has more trendy and proven beauty technology in her spa then anyone in Boston, by far. And she has personally trained with all the legends in the business. I am a complete snob. I am not ashamed to admit this. Here, my snobbishness and extremely high standards and rare experience in this field, should lend some credibility to my opinion. She is one of a kind. I reluctantly share this review/my secret because she is such a diamond in the rough and my life would be better if she has less traffic in her office and could see me at my whim. (Which, in truth, she basically does. Me and, it seems, many of her beloved clients whom she cares for like a little girl does her most treasured and beautiful dolls.)

Great Results With Juvederm Ultra Plus

I wanted to increase the volume of my lips and create a more defined Cupid’s bow. I had amazing results with juvederm ultra plus lip fillers. My lips are much more plump, full and shiny as I stay hydrated and exfoliate my lips often. Dr Shanthala is very talented!! I’m very happy with my results and will continue to return for maintenance!

Wonderful doctor wonderful location. I went to have fillers and after a consultation it turned out I had laser and was more than happy with the work Dr. Shanthala performed. She is genuine and is caring and absolutely wonderful at what she does. She takes the time to be with you and wants to hear your expectations and truly wants you to look and feel your best. You will only be glad you have her as your doctor no matter what you may desire.

Great experience with Dr Shanthana and Kybella!

Dr. Shanthala is not only talented and highly qualified, she is so incredible sincere. Not once did I feel like I was being sold to. I was being guided and informed on what the options were for me and what expectations I should have. I’m writing this review after two rounds of Kybella treatment. I had a a minor double chin, but the fact that it was lopsided (yes, lopsided!) made it bother me more. I’m 38, not overweight and in pretty good shape. After 2 rounds I feel over 50% improved. I’m likely to go for a third round once turtleneck season is back. I definitely had the bullfrog effect for about 5 days. Not difficult to hide with the right top and scarf accessories. My bruising was mild, but I was very committed to the arnica and icing in the first 24 hours. I see myself having a long term relationship with Dr Shanthala. I love her approach, trust her skill set and can even have a good laugh with her!

THANK YOU SO MUCH DR. SHANTHALA!!!!

I first walked into Dr. Shanthala’s Med Spa for a demonstration over a year ago. I left to” think about it”.
I had had injectables in the past and the procedure was not always pleasant and the results not always so good either. However, as the year passed and the more I looked in the mirror, the more I knew I wanted to do something, and boy am I glad I did.
The consultation with Dr. Shanthala put me right at ease, she was patient and informative. She explained everything in detail and she made knowledgeable recommendations. We decided to go with a combination of modified Ultherapy and Bellafill. And I just LOVE the results. Her technique was so different than the other physician’s technique, albeit more time consuming. She actually disperses the product throughout the area of need rather than in just one spot. She actually gave me CHEEKBONES!!!
Let me also add that her place is meticulous, warm and inviting. She really cares about each of her patients. She called me the next day to see how I was feeling and then asked me to come by a week later to see how I looked! She is such a warm, caring human being, I am so happy and proud to be her patient and am looking forward to my my next treatment which will be a combination of Kybella injections and modified Ultherapy to my neck region for even more great results and an even more youthful me, guided by her skilled hands. After all who doesn’t want to grow younger?? THANK YOU SO MUCH DR. SHANTHALA!!!! You are amazing. I am so glad I found YOU.

A different league for this area

What this doctor reminds me of is something one only usually finds on the west coast. I have had countless treatments. You have the ability to forge an ongoing relationship and truly make changes that she is interested in, every bit as much as you are. You can go to her quite often and get evaluated from head to toe and take steps to partner up with her to make those changes. She doesn’t sell you something she doesn’t believe in. I can’t say enough about her that’s good. If you haven’t tried clear and brilliant do so! Make sure you pick the right doctor though!

Hands down the best

This doctor did my hands with filler and the results are so natural. She’s amazing and they look ten years younger. No pain no bruising and very little swelling. Whatever you go to her for, she excels at.

Lines Around Mouth and Downward Turned Corners of Mouth, Double Chin, No Volume in Cheek Area, 48 Year Old Female

I had Restylane Refyne around my mouth area. It significantly smoothed out the fine lines and wrinkles and made my lips look full and natural. What an incredible difference. She made my mouth look 10 years younger! I had Kybella for my double chin. After completing two treatments (4-6 wks apart), I look like a new person. It improved my profile dramatically and took years off of my overall look. I had Radiasse for my cheeks to add some volume in that area. The result was incredible. It makes me look years younger!

Great experience always thankful

She is amazing, patient kind and gentle. I had some serious scaring do to acne and life and she helped me first control my acne then working on my scars. She was honest with me and never led me in a direction that was more costly with no results. I was able to wear an open back sleeveless gown for my wedding and I’m forever thankful to her for that. She also does a wide variety of services that people love!

Restylane Injection for Under Eye Hollows

I went to Dr. Shanthala for a consultaiton for a few concerns I had about my face appearing tired. She was very observant, asked me about my concerns, about my lifestyle and observed me carefully while I was rambling away. She explained to me that some of the procedures I had in mind ( from googling of course ) were actually not needed for my situation. She is a doctor with hight ethics and will not perfom a procedure on her patients unless she believes it is the best option for the patients skin type and age! After the consultation she gave me the best options for my case and also took away some of my insecurities. She has the ability to make you feel comfortable to express any concern you might have. The procedure I had done, Restylane Injection for under eye hollows, made such a difference on my tired looking face! Dr. Shanthala was so careful while performing and explained clearly the after care needed. I had a great experience and I would recommed her to anyone who has any appearance concern that they would like to address !

The only doctor to see!

Dr. Shanthala is an exceptional and honest provider. I have seen her 3 times for Botox. Each time she has made me feel completely at ease and comfortable in her hands. She gives an honest assessment of what is needed and has realistic expectations of what will be achieved from the injections. I appreciate her philosophy of having a natural, healthy face and trust her judgement 100%. She has always been generous with her time and samples. It is clear she isn’t in the business to sell, but rather to promote a healthy and natural looking outcome. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!

Skin Tightening – Yes Please!

The staff at ShanthalaMD is by far the friendliest and most inviting individuals I have met in a medical setting. They make you feel right at home as soon as you walk in. I’m always greeted with a warm smile, offered tea or coffee, etc.
The skin tightening is very effective but you do have to commit to weekly treatments for a short period to see results! Absolutely worth it. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to really improve the appearance of their skin. I decided to get skin tightening treatments for my body. I exercise regularly and eat well but I wanted to further contour my figure.
Aesthetics are very important to me and this is just one of the many options offered to me for my needs.

Kind, compassionate, caring,

My appointment with Shanthala was a wonderful experience. She answered all my questions and was so kind and caring. I felt a very strong sense of trust. Shanthala was very honest about the amount of pain that I would be feeling. During the process, she was compassionate and so pleasant. I have already highly recommended her to friends. She is a lovely person and a great doctor. Thanks Shanthala. I really appreciate all that you have done for me.

Wouldn’t trust anyone else….Dr Shanthala is amazing.

I have been seeing Dr Shanthala for over a year now and she has provided me with several Clear and Brilliant treatments as well as botox and mircodermabrasion. Dr. Shanthala won me over from our first meeting when she asked and really listened to what my concerns were. She took the time to describe in depth what treatments she thought would be best for me, and most importantly, advised me against a few treatments I wanted as they would be ‘overkill’. Her approach of ‘start conservatively and add more if you need it’ is wonderful and has kept me looking fresh and bright but always natural – exactly the look I wanted to achieve. She is a true friend to her clients and strives to keep them happy. Her office is relaxing and warm and her staff is among the friendliest and most professional I have met – they always offer you tea and follow up with calls to make sure your care was exceptional (which is always is). I’m so glad I found Dr. Shathala as I trust her and no one else with my face.

Best experience

I have done a lot of research looking for the best doctor to deliver my botox and lip filler treatment. I am 29 y.o female looking to get ahead of the aging curve while maintaining a natural look. Dr. Shanthala is so meticulous and caring. I am a dentist so I can appreciate her great bedside manner, trustworthiness and attention to detail. I was so nervous about my post-op swelling/bruising but Dr. Shanthala reassured me and she was absolutely right- I had slight lip bruising for 2 days after- nothing that make up couldn’t fix. She is great with a needle I had the topical anesthetic on my lips and it was not bad at all. The botox was a complete breeze and had zero bruising. I have gone to Dr. Shanthala for 3 appointments and can’t imagine going to anyone else. Her office is comfortable and her staff extremely friendly and non-judgemental. I love that she takes before pictures for reference and she is extremely knowledgable on the musculature of the face. She is very thorough in her assessment and knows what the products can achieve. As a fellow clinician and extremely satisfied patient I highly recommend Dr. Shanthala! Thank you for a great experience!

A Whole New Me

I am 58 years old and I recently visited Dr. Shivananjappa at Shanthala MD Medspa & Laser Center to see if she could help to soften the lines on my my forehead (Eleven lines) and crows feet as well as the lines above my upper lip (Smokers lines). Dr. Shivananjappa used botox to treat the forehead and eye area and fillers in the lip area. The results are amazing and surpassed my expectations. The lines on the upper part of my face are greatly softened making me looked more relaxed. My outer brows are even slightly lifted which opens my eyes. To treat the lip area she used fillers around my lips – my lower lip has been slowly disappearing over the years. But voila! Dr. Shivananjappa magically sculpted them with a bit of filler and the results are spectacular. The change is not so drastic that other’s would notice but, the lines above my upper lip are barely noticeable. It is even easier to apply lip liner and lip stick because my lips have a defineable border that had all but disppeared. I would highly recommend Dr. Shivananjappa. She is well-trained at her craft, honest and trustworthy. Dr. Shivananjappa takes pride in her work and her assessments are spot on.

Great atmosphere and great staff

I am a male approaching 40 yrs old and I have been a patient of Dr Shanthala for approx 15 months. Dr. Shanthala is very talented at the craft of aesthetic enhancement! She meets your expectations with experience as well as creative and realistic insight and does not over- promise and under- deliver, like some other doctors and professionals. I was new to the whole botox treatment plan and only decided to follow through because of the lines in my forehead and the angry lines in my brow. People were asking me if I was angry at them, when I was only starring off in their direction lol. I also had a very special event ahead of me and I wanted to stop the progressive nature of the deep lines and soften the skin up a little. Dr Shanthala starts treatments off slow and gets to know both her patients skin as well as their personality and tolerance for different treatments. It is not a high pressure place and as the patient you begin to learn more each time as the doctor tailors a plan or just makes suggestions based on your unique facial canvas. The atmosphere is professional but relaxed and fun. Coming from someone that lifted weights and laid in the sun and tanning booth for years, I wanted to make a change and slow down the aging process as part of my mini mid life crisis.HA. Dr Shanthala is the best doctor to be a part of that process with her experience, honesty, and humor! You don’t have to be a woman or even a man that wears a suit and tie to work everyday, in order to want to look a little more polished!

Where else is anyone going to get one on one attention and procedure directly from a practicing MD? I had a few concerns about sagging in my face, hollowing in my eyes and Dr Shanthala only recommended what she thought would give me the most benefits- bottom line, i wanted a nice, subtle enhancement nothing “fake”, I walked away so happy, i did the novathreads , laser treatement and some fillers, no downtime, and the experience was private (I was the only patient), beautiful office and informative,I highly recommend anyone looking please look up Dr. Shanthala in Peabody Mass

Excellent Doctor

I had a very good experience with Shivananjappa. She is the most sensitive doctor I ever met. She really takes the time to hear what you want, what bothers you and why. She spent so much time with me to discuss what bothered me, gave me a bunch of options and the pros/cons of each and would not let me decide right there what i wanted to do. She wanted to give me time and provided me with material to research. I decided on coolsculpting and very happy with the results. I will continue to see Dr Shivananjappa.

A true skin master!!

I visited Dr. Shanthala a couple of times prior to my wedding and I can’t be more satisfied! Thanks to her everyone keeps complimenting how great I look on the big day. She is very knowledgeable, truly listens to all my concerns and her recommended treatments are always effective. She recommended PRP injections to fill the holes near my under eye area, along with hydra facials and vampire facials to make sure my skin is under the best condition. All of the treatments worked wonderfully. Every time I visit I can feel she really cares about each patient and she is very passionate about delivering the optimal result. Best doctor I know!

Visiting Dr. Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best thing

Visiting Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best  thing I have done for my self in years. I have tried several medspa type businesses in the past. They were  all good, but often they did not stay on top of the latest, safest and best procedures. None of these medspas had the expertise of   Shanthala. They also were  more about volume of clients, where Shanthala is all about doing what is best, for you , her most important client of the moment. You feel this attitude.. Her approach and consultation are also comfortable for the client, honest detailed information , no high pressure tactics. She is constantly training and attending  conferences and classes. She in compassionate, highly intelligent, has a wonderful bedside manner, and a great sense of humor. She holds herself to the highest  standards. The environment is meticulous, and so inviting. She is informative, affable and professional. My skin looks great and I had a wonderful time visiting her office . I had a micro needling procedure. A week later my  skin looks so beautiful. I have already called to book another appointment. I live closer to Boston, but the skills, service and experience of visiting Shanthala are better, than those offered in  areas more convenient to my home.
Oh, I also stopped for an  amazing crepe  at New Art of Gelato, after my visit to Shanthala. What a perfect day. This gelato and crepe place is less than 5 minutes from Shanthala, and the food was delicious. I had a spinach tomato and goat cheese crepe, and  freshly made blueberry gelato . My trip to Peabody was completely worth the drive. I also had very little traffic,as I booked my appointment on a Saturday morning.  I am so happy I made the effort to visit Shanthala. My entire experience was positive. the trip to Peabody is also very easy , and her office is just off an exit.

Dr. Shanthala is awesome!

Shanthala is awesome!  Not only is she an MD but she is caring and gracious.  She makes sure that you understand all treatment options and recommends what is best for you.  I initially went to one of the franchises and it was very sales oriented with junior staff as the primary people you interact with.  You will have the totally opposite experience with Shanthala AND the treatments really work!  She cares from the minute you walk into her medspa, throughout the entire treatment and after.  It amazes me that she has such fantastic bedside manner, as I have not experienced that very often with many doctors.  Don’t waste your time going anywhere else!

extremely satisfied with the outcome

I started noticing lines in my forehead and did not like what I saw. I called Dr Shanthala….as a friend had treatments done there and was extremely satisfied with the outcome….and went in. Imagine my surprise at how warm and welcoming they were. I do have to say I was a bit apprehensive…but the staff, including Dr Shanthala made me feel comfortable. The thing that really surprised me was that I wanted to do Botox in a few areas but Dr Shanthala stated I did not need it done in all those areas. She proceeded with the Botox, only where she felt it was needed, and I cannot thank her enough!! Not only do I look 10 years younger, but I’m still aghast that unlike most other spas, the Doctor did not perform a treatment that she felt I did not need. If you are thinking of Botox, or any other treatment, please seek out Dr Shanthala. You will be happy you did.

Dr. Shanthala is an amazing physician and true artist who cares deeply about her work and her patients.  I felt as if I were at a spa with the level of pampering and personal attention that I received from both the doctor and her staff.  From my consultation appointment to my actual procedure, I knew that I was in good hands. Dr. Shanthala listened to my concerns and wants before recommending the procedures that would give me the exact look I desired. I am thrilled with the outcome and am looking forward to returning to her wonderful practice.

She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.

From the moment I met Dr. Shanthala, I could see that this woman exudes CLASS.  She has the most professional and caring demeanor. She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.  This is a very knowledgeable woman. Did I mention that she is a doctor?! Not only does she perform all procedures with the utmost care, but she also is very aware of sterile technique. As a Registered Nurse, I find this trait very appealing. She takes the time to educate each of her patients and makes them feel completely comfortable before she proceeds with any treatment.

After consulting with Dr. Shanthala, I decided on micro needling. As a woman in my early 40s, I am starting to see uneven skin tones, sagginess and fine wrinkles around my eyes, forehead and laugh lines. What I love about the micro needling is that it is an all-in-one type of procedure. It helps with wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tightening, large pores and acne. I have had 2 treatments and have already seen remarkable improvements in my skin. I notice less wrinkle lines, a smoother appearance and more even skin tones.  The best part is there is no down time for this procedure. Before visiting her med spa, I was on an acne medicine for years. Since I have been seeing Dr. Shanthala, I ‘ve been able to stop taking this medication! My skin has never looked better.

I can honestly say that Dr. Shanthala has become one of my favorite people. She is passionate about what she does and her customer service is impeccable. I absolutely love going to her medical spa. The ambiance is inviting, the care is top-notch and the staff is supportive, inviting and caring. Take my advice and experience it for yourself. I can promise, you will not be disappointed!

Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING!

I went to see Dr. Shanthala a month before my sister’s wedding. I recently had a baby and am still very much over weight and so my self esteem was at an all time low. Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING! She spent a really long time with me, making sure we pick the absolute best treatment. Never once did I feel pressured into anything unnecessary (if anything, she kept telling me I don’t need things done!) and the results are beyond my expectations! I feel like myself again.

I am so happy with the results

I recently had a microdermabrasion and laser facial treatment at Shanthala MD MedSpa. I am so happy with the results that I felt I must share. First, let me say that she is not your typical injector or laser operator, she is a doctor with a wealth of knowledge and a genuinely caring and compassionate person. She spent a lot of time educating me on her different procedures and walked me through her spectacular facility, which alone, blew me away. The laser procedure took muchpatience on her end and she even had her staff run out for goodies as I was there for a long period. She was a pure perfectionist while dotting over me and the results were just as she described. I love looking at my glowing skin in the mirror and touching my face to feel how soft and smooth and lovely the texture is………amazing results & totally worth the investment!! You must meet Shantala and experience her treatments firsthand. Once you do, you will never go anywhere else!! P.S. Thank you Dr. Shanthala!

Thank you Dr. Shanthala,

I don’t usually write reviews but I just had to now. About 8 months ago, I got a facial filler done at a doctors office like I usually do a couple of times a year. This time though, something went terribly wrong. I’m not sure the what the medical term is for what happened to me, but it seems that the filler was injected into a blood vessel. What followed was horrible. Immediately, the left side of my face went numb and I developed a terrible infection that caused a horrible lesion, and my face to swell and look deformed. I temporarily lost my eye sight in my left eye and was in a lot of pain. I was scared and confused and seeked some answers or even help from the doctor that performed the treatment. To make a long story short, I called the office 5 times before the doctor called me back, only to tell me that I’ll be fine and to take some Advil. After 8 months, I still have numbness in my face and a scar from the lesion. I finally decided to consult Dr, Shanathala and get her opinion on whether I would ever be able to do anything to my face again. Call me crazy after what I went through, but at the end of the day, I am still a woman and aging concerns me like all of us. From the moment I walked in to her office, I felt the warmth and calm that she put out. She explained to me what happened to me and let me decide if I wanted to take things slow.
I wanted her to do a little filler again, so after 45 minutes of her explaining everything to me, she did, even though I was terrified, and I was thrilled with the results, and I got the courage to do things to my face again with her help.
Thank you Dr. Shanthala,
For being a human being, for showing compassion, for being a professional, for listening, for being amazing at your job, for loving what you do, and loving your patients,for not cutting corners, for being patient and all around for being a beautiful person.

Don’t hesitate to book with Dr Shanthala.

Don’t hesitate to book with Dr Shanthala. She has a warm way about her that makes discussing options so easy. She actually listens and doesn’t “push”. I will be back for other procedures for sure. The office is pleasant, parking is easy and I was extremely comfortable in the office. Do yourself a favor- don’t go elsewhere.

I was recommended to see Dr. Shanthala

It’s rare to find a physician who will take the time to sit down and listen to your concerns and take the time to really understand who you are and what your specific needs are as a patient.

Here is a little bit about my experience with Dr. Shanthala: I was recommended to see Dr. Shanthala by a friend. I arrived a few minutes prior to the appointment, and she called me in for my consult right on time. We sat down to discuss what my particular needs are for skincare, and we discussed what I am currently doing for skincare. She gave me some great suggestions for skincare, and did a couple of treatments in the office. Throughout the experience, Dr. Shanthala’s truly caring personality was apparent, and it is clear that she wants the best for her patients.

Now, about a month out from my initial visit, I couldn’t be happier with the results. My skin looks great, and the treatment areas look youthful and natural.

I will be recommending Dr. Shanthala to my friends and family, and am looking forward to seeing her again.

Professional, educational, and an artist of her craft

I have visited Dr. Shanthala on many occasions, and she has always been nothing but professional, educational, and an artist of her craft. Today I had a hydra facial and it was absolutely amazing. My dry, unkept winter skin is now incredibly soft, clean and moisturized. I will be revisiting this treatment monthly. I would highly recommend her office for your skin care needs.

Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does,

I have been going here for about a year now, I have acne prone skin and a lot of scaring, they were very honest as to what can be done for my scaring and acne. I do peels and microdermabrasion on the regular and my skin has never looked or felt better! Dr. Shanthala is so gentle and educated at what she does, she really believes in her work. Dorothy is also wonderful and does a great job with my peels and micro. I have a few clients that I sent to Dr Shanthala and they have done many different procedures such as Botox, fillers and lip augmentations and they all said amazing things!

Her clientele adores her and so will you!!!!!

I recently went to ShanthalaMD,Medspa and Laser Center to request an evaluation on what can be done to enhance my appearance.I am 60 years old and take very good care of  my body and skin and was really disliking the biological aging process no matter how good you take care of your skin you can’t stop the aging process.After a thorough evaluation and informing/teaching me about the newest procedures out there…we decided to go with Instalift and juvaderm,since I have  sagging on my lower face area.She has a”good eye” and knows  just by looking at you what will be best for you to enhance your appearance.There was no pain with the juvaderm(filler) and with the instalift I felt a pinching sensation for a few seconds,very tolerable.The results were  “instant”.It was amazing!I then went back to my activities of daily living…no pain,redness,swelling or soreness.Her bedside manner was very comforting,supportive and gentle.She is accurate and precise.Her work is phenomenal and  it shows.She is  highly educated and is there for YOU!Her Medspa  on the Northshore in Peabody ,Mass. is beautiful and immaculate.I would highly recommend her to all!!!Her clientele adores her and so will you!!!!!

Expert Treatments!

I have been a patient of Dr. Shanthala for the past two years. Each visit has been even better than the last. Dr. Shanthala’s office is beautiful and a wonderful environment for each treatment. Dr. Shanthala has always provided the most expert advice on options and her skills with treatments is amazing. I have been incredibly pleased with the results. With each treatment (facials, injections, etc.) I have felt that the results looked completely natural and that my skin’s appearance was improved. I recommend Dr. Shanthala completely.

Worldclass

I was a beauty writer/editor for various magazines years ago including Vogue, Allure, etc. I’ve therefore had access to the best doctors, beauty treatments and beauty professionals in the world, from New York to Los Angeles to Miami to Paris to London and so on. Essentially, I was a guinea pig for everything trending in aesthetics for a very long time. When I recently moved/returned to the North Shore, I was convinced my days of sophisticated beauty treatments were over. And then I found Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa. Since I gave birth a year ago, she has helped me recover the youth and prettiness I was certain I’d lost forever in the hospital delivery room. She is the real deal. Again, I say this as someone who has had experience with truly the best. I see her monthly now for fun little nips and jabs and scrapes and removals and all manner of mechanical and laser applications and I trust her entirely with the fine tuning of both my face and body. She has more trendy and proven beauty technology in her spa then anyone in Boston, by far. And she has personally trained with all the legends in the business. I am a complete snob. I am not ashamed to admit this. Here, my snobbishness and extremely high standards and rare experience in this field, should lend some credibility to my opinion. She is one of a kind. I reluctantly share this review/my secret because she is such a diamond in the rough and my life would be better if she has less traffic in her office and could see me at my whim. (Which, in truth, she basically does. Me and, it seems, many of her beloved clients whom she cares for like a little girl does her most treasured and beautiful dolls.)

Great Results With Juvederm Ultra Plus

I wanted to increase the volume of my lips and create a more defined Cupid’s bow. I had amazing results with juvederm ultra plus lip fillers. My lips are much more plump, full and shiny as I stay hydrated and exfoliate my lips often. Dr Shanthala is very talented!! I’m very happy with my results and will continue to return for maintenance!

Juvederm Lip Augmentation

She went above and beyond to accommodate me despite a scheduling mix up. Warm, compassionate and knowledgeable. Definitely a more personal experience than your average clinic. While it the injections were slightly more expensive than what I have paid in the past, I would definitely come here again and recommend it.

Active 59 Yo Woman with Some Laxity in Lower Face, Wonderful Results with Instalift and Juverderm

My husband and I are planning a trip to Europe and I wanted to freshen up my appearance with a procedure that would have quick results. Dr. Shanthala suggested Instalift as the best treatment. The procedure involves threading Sculptra ‘threads’ in the desired area, which for me was the lower face, and then ‘lifting’ the threads to create the desired effect. Dr. Shanthala explained the procedure in careful detail and performed the ‘lift’ with precision and an artistic eye. I hadn’t planned on getting any filler in my lips, but Dr. Shantha recommended it. Not wanting an exaggerated ‘pucker’, I was hesitant. Dr. Shanthala was extremely patient and reassured me my lips would look natural. It is an understatement to say that I am thrilled with the results of the Instalift and Juvederm lip filler. My appearance looks refreshed and more youthful. Neither procedure was painful and my husband and I were able to go to dinner that evening. Dr. Shantala is extremely talented, creative, and precise. She is aware of all the latest procedures, and was keenly aware of what to choose to suit my specific needs. I feel extremely fortunate to have found her and consider her a treasure. Run, don’t walk for an appointment. You will be thrilled that you did.

Kind, compassionate, caring,

My appointment with Shanthala was a wonderful experience. She answered all my questions and was so kind and caring. I felt a very strong sense of trust. Shanthala was very honest about the amount of pain that I would be feeling. During the process, she was compassionate and so pleasant. I have already highly recommended her to friends. She is a lovely person and a great doctor. Thanks Shanthala. I really appreciate all that you have done for me.

Great atmosphere and great staff

I am a male approaching 40 yrs old and I have been a patient of Dr Shanthala for approx 15 months. Dr. Shanthala is very talented at the craft of aesthetic enhancement! She meets your expectations with experience as well as creative and realistic insight and does not over- promise and under- deliver, like some other doctors and professionals. I was new to the whole botox treatment plan and only decided to follow through because of the lines in my forehead and the angry lines in my brow. People were asking me if I was angry at them, when I was only starring off in their direction lol. I also had a very special event ahead of me and I wanted to stop the progressive nature of the deep lines and soften the skin up a little. Dr Shanthala starts treatments off slow and gets to know both her patients skin as well as their personality and tolerance for different treatments. It is not a high pressure place and as the patient you begin to learn more each time as the doctor tailors a plan or just makes suggestions based on your unique facial canvas. The atmosphere is professional but relaxed and fun. Coming from someone that lifted weights and laid in the sun and tanning booth for years, I wanted to make a change and slow down the aging process as part of my mini mid life crisis.HA. Dr Shanthala is the best doctor to be a part of that process with her experience, honesty, and humor! You don’t have to be a woman or even a man that wears a suit and tie to work everyday, in order to want to look a little more polished!

A true skin master!!

I visited Dr. Shanthala a couple of times prior to my wedding and I can’t be more satisfied! Thanks to her everyone keeps complimenting how great I look on the big day. She is very knowledgeable, truly listens to all my concerns and her recommended treatments are always effective. She recommended PRP injections to fill the holes near my under eye area, along with hydra facials and vampire facials to make sure my skin is under the best condition. All of the treatments worked wonderfully. Every time I visit I can feel she really cares about each patient and she is very passionate about delivering the optimal result. Best doctor I know!

Visiting Dr. Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best thing

Visiting Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best  thing I have done for my self in years. I have tried several medspa type businesses in the past. They were  all good, but often they did not stay on top of the latest, safest and best procedures. None of these medspas had the expertise of   Shanthala. They also were  more about volume of clients, where Shanthala is all about doing what is best, for you , her most important client of the moment. You feel this attitude.. Her approach and consultation are also comfortable for the client, honest detailed information , no high pressure tactics. She is constantly training and attending  conferences and classes. She in compassionate, highly intelligent, has a wonderful bedside manner, and a great sense of humor. She holds herself to the highest  standards. The environment is meticulous, and so inviting. She is informative, affable and professional. My skin looks great and I had a wonderful time visiting her office . I had a micro needling procedure. A week later my  skin looks so beautiful. I have already called to book another appointment. I live closer to Boston, but the skills, service and experience of visiting Shanthala are better, than those offered in  areas more convenient to my home.
Oh, I also stopped for an  amazing crepe  at New Art of Gelato, after my visit to Shanthala. What a perfect day. This gelato and crepe place is less than 5 minutes from Shanthala, and the food was delicious. I had a spinach tomato and goat cheese crepe, and  freshly made blueberry gelato . My trip to Peabody was completely worth the drive. I also had very little traffic,as I booked my appointment on a Saturday morning.  I am so happy I made the effort to visit Shanthala. My entire experience was positive. the trip to Peabody is also very easy , and her office is just off an exit.

She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.

From the moment I met Dr. Shanthala, I could see that this woman exudes CLASS.  She has the most professional and caring demeanor. She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.  This is a very knowledgeable woman. Did I mention that she is a doctor?! Not only does she perform all procedures with the utmost care, but she also is very aware of sterile technique. As a Registered Nurse, I find this trait very appealing. She takes the time to educate each of her patients and makes them feel completely comfortable before she proceeds with any treatment.

After consulting with Dr. Shanthala, I decided on micro needling. As a woman in my early 40s, I am starting to see uneven skin tones, sagginess and fine wrinkles around my eyes, forehead and laugh lines. What I love about the micro needling is that it is an all-in-one type of procedure. It helps with wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tightening, large pores and acne. I have had 2 treatments and have already seen remarkable improvements in my skin. I notice less wrinkle lines, a smoother appearance and more even skin tones.  The best part is there is no down time for this procedure. Before visiting her med spa, I was on an acne medicine for years. Since I have been seeing Dr. Shanthala, I ‘ve been able to stop taking this medication! My skin has never looked better.

I can honestly say that Dr. Shanthala has become one of my favorite people. She is passionate about what she does and her customer service is impeccable. I absolutely love going to her medical spa. The ambiance is inviting, the care is top-notch and the staff is supportive, inviting and caring. Take my advice and experience it for yourself. I can promise, you will not be disappointed!

Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING!

I went to see Dr. Shanthala a month before my sister’s wedding. I recently had a baby and am still very much over weight and so my self esteem was at an all time low. Dr. Shanthala was AMAZING! She spent a really long time with me, making sure we pick the absolute best treatment. Never once did I feel pressured into anything unnecessary (if anything, she kept telling me I don’t need things done!) and the results are beyond my expectations! I feel like myself again.

I am so happy with the results

I recently had a microdermabrasion and laser facial treatment at Shanthala MD MedSpa. I am so happy with the results that I felt I must share. First, let me say that she is not your typical injector or laser operator, she is a doctor with a wealth of knowledge and a genuinely caring and compassionate person. She spent a lot of time educating me on her different procedures and walked me through her spectacular facility, which alone, blew me away. The laser procedure took muchpatience on her end and she even had her staff run out for goodies as I was there for a long period. She was a pure perfectionist while dotting over me and the results were just as she described. I love looking at my glowing skin in the mirror and touching my face to feel how soft and smooth and lovely the texture is………amazing results & totally worth the investment!! You must meet Shantala and experience her treatments firsthand. Once you do, you will never go anywhere else!! P.S. Thank you Dr. Shanthala!

Dr. Shanthala is very talented,

I found Shanthala MD Medspa & Laser Center online, and am beyond ecstatic I did. Dr. Shanthala is very talented, and I felt comfortable immediately after being in her calming presence. She takes time to hear out her patients concerns, and answered all my questions with very thorough explanations. Despite living quite far from the location, I will continue to return as I trust my face in Dr. Shanthala’s hands.
My results with Juvederm Ultra Plus are incredible! My desired results were fuller lips with a more defined Cupid’s bow, and Dr. Shanthala did just that. I have never felt more confident with my lips in my life, and I’ve gotten many compliments on them as a result.
I would highly recommend this procedure for anyone who wants fuller, yet natural lips.

Kybella has sharpened my jaw line and my profile looks great.

I’m a 48 yr old women with concerns with my double chin that has been getting worse as I age. I discussed Kybella with Dr. Shanthala and felt very comfortable after our discussion. I had a total of three sessions over a 8 month period. There is swelling involved after the procedure and mild bruising but they only last about a week. Overall I am very happy with the outcome, I feel it has sharpened my jaw line and my profile looks great. In regard to Dr. Shanthala I think she is wonderful, she takes the time to discuss what options are available and I’ve always felt that she has my best interest in mind. I’ve also had fillers and botox with Dr. Shanthala, both worked great. The fillers really opened my eyes up, many people noticed the change, said I looked fresher. Thank you Dr. Shanthala for everything you have done for me. jeanelle

Great experience with Dr Shanthana and Kybella!

Dr. Shanthala is not only talented and highly qualified, she is so incredible sincere. Not once did I feel like I was being sold to. I was being guided and informed on what the options were for me and what expectations I should have. I’m writing this review after two rounds of Kybella treatment. I had a a minor double chin, but the fact that it was lopsided (yes, lopsided!) made it bother me more. I’m 38, not overweight and in pretty good shape. After 2 rounds I feel over 50% improved. I’m likely to go for a third round once turtleneck season is back. I definitely had the bullfrog effect for about 5 days. Not difficult to hide with the right top and scarf accessories. My bruising was mild, but I was very committed to the arnica and icing in the first 24 hours. I see myself having a long term relationship with Dr Shanthala. I love her approach, trust her skill set and can even have a good laugh with her!

THANK YOU SO MUCH DR. SHANTHALA!!!!

I first walked into Dr. Shanthala’s Med Spa for a demonstration over a year ago. I left to” think about it”.
I had had injectables in the past and the procedure was not always pleasant and the results not always so good either. However, as the year passed and the more I looked in the mirror, the more I knew I wanted to do something, and boy am I glad I did.
The consultation with Dr. Shanthala put me right at ease, she was patient and informative. She explained everything in detail and she made knowledgeable recommendations. We decided to go with a combination of modified Ultherapy and Bellafill. And I just LOVE the results. Her technique was so different than the other physician’s technique, albeit more time consuming. She actually disperses the product throughout the area of need rather than in just one spot. She actually gave me CHEEKBONES!!!
Let me also add that her place is meticulous, warm and inviting. She really cares about each of her patients. She called me the next day to see how I was feeling and then asked me to come by a week later to see how I looked! She is such a warm, caring human being, I am so happy and proud to be her patient and am looking forward to my my next treatment which will be a combination of Kybella injections and modified Ultherapy to my neck region for even more great results and an even more youthful me, guided by her skilled hands. After all who doesn’t want to grow younger?? THANK YOU SO MUCH DR. SHANTHALA!!!! You are amazing. I am so glad I found YOU.

A different league for this area

What this doctor reminds me of is something one only usually finds on the west coast. I have had countless treatments. You have the ability to forge an ongoing relationship and truly make changes that she is interested in, every bit as much as you are. You can go to her quite often and get evaluated from head to toe and take steps to partner up with her to make those changes. She doesn’t sell you something she doesn’t believe in. I can’t say enough about her that’s good. If you haven’t tried clear and brilliant do so! Make sure you pick the right doctor though!

A beautiful experience!

Dr. Shanthala is a true one of a kind doctor. I have had several treatments with her. I have a very rare strain of linear scleroderma called ‘morphea’ basically causing me to scar for no reason. Dr. Shanthala did extensive research on my condition before she would treat me. I had Coolsculpt as well as Kybella performed. It has been months since I have had my treatments and neither triggered an outburst of my rare condition. I was very careful with the practitioner I chose and my faith landed in the hands of Dr. Shanthala. Her kindness and exquisite expertise made me feel invincible post procedure. The staff is always extremely friendly and knowledgable. If I could give 10 stars, I would. Thank you Dr. Shanthala for making me feel safe and beautiful.

Where else is anyone going to get one on one attention and procedure directly from a practicing MD? I had a few concerns about sagging in my face, hollowing in my eyes and Dr Shanthala only recommended what she thought would give me the most benefits- bottom line, i wanted a nice, subtle enhancement nothing “fake”, I walked away so happy, i did the novathreads , laser treatement and some fillers, no downtime, and the experience was private (I was the only patient), beautiful office and informative,I highly recommend anyone looking please look up Dr. Shanthala in Peabody Mass

A true skin master!!

I visited Dr. Shanthala a couple of times prior to my wedding and I can’t be more satisfied! Thanks to her everyone keeps complimenting how great I look on the big day. She is very knowledgeable, truly listens to all my concerns and her recommended treatments are always effective. She recommended PRP injections to fill the holes near my under eye area, along with hydra facials and vampire facials to make sure my skin is under the best condition. All of the treatments worked wonderfully. Every time I visit I can feel she really cares about each patient and she is very passionate about delivering the optimal result. Best doctor I know!

Amazing!!!!

My mom has always said, “you get what you pay for.” So if you’re looking for a cheap and quick fix, then keep looking. When it comes to my health and beauty regime, I’ve done my research, and Dr. Shanthala is well worth the price to pay. Well versed in her practice and being completely in tune to my needs, you are sure to step into the hands of someone who listens and honestly recommends according to your current needs. I’ve felt every purchase of treatment I’ve made, well worth the time and price with Shanthala; she will not sell you on something you don’t need. This is not a medspa factory, and you are not a medical record number. Consider yourself a lifetime investment, because that is what Shanthala is about; you will not find a more individualized, passionate, and approachable Doctor around.

She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.

From the moment I met Dr. Shanthala, I could see that this woman exudes CLASS.  She has the most professional and caring demeanor. She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.  This is a very knowledgeable woman. Did I mention that she is a doctor?! Not only does she perform all procedures with the utmost care, but she also is very aware of sterile technique. As a Registered Nurse, I find this trait very appealing. She takes the time to educate each of her patients and makes them feel completely comfortable before she proceeds with any treatment.

After consulting with Dr. Shanthala, I decided on micro needling. As a woman in my early 40s, I am starting to see uneven skin tones, sagginess and fine wrinkles around my eyes, forehead and laugh lines. What I love about the micro needling is that it is an all-in-one type of procedure. It helps with wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tightening, large pores and acne. I have had 2 treatments and have already seen remarkable improvements in my skin. I notice less wrinkle lines, a smoother appearance and more even skin tones.  The best part is there is no down time for this procedure. Before visiting her med spa, I was on an acne medicine for years. Since I have been seeing Dr. Shanthala, I ‘ve been able to stop taking this medication! My skin has never looked better.

I can honestly say that Dr. Shanthala has become one of my favorite people. She is passionate about what she does and her customer service is impeccable. I absolutely love going to her medical spa. The ambiance is inviting, the care is top-notch and the staff is supportive, inviting and caring. Take my advice and experience it for yourself. I can promise, you will not be disappointed!

Thank you Dr. Shanthala,

I don’t usually write reviews but I just had to now. About 8 months ago, I got a facial filler done at a doctors office like I usually do a couple of times a year. This time though, something went terribly wrong. I’m not sure the what the medical term is for what happened to me, but it seems that the filler was injected into a blood vessel. What followed was horrible. Immediately, the left side of my face went numb and I developed a terrible infection that caused a horrible lesion, and my face to swell and look deformed. I temporarily lost my eye sight in my left eye and was in a lot of pain. I was scared and confused and seeked some answers or even help from the doctor that performed the treatment. To make a long story short, I called the office 5 times before the doctor called me back, only to tell me that I’ll be fine and to take some Advil. After 8 months, I still have numbness in my face and a scar from the lesion. I finally decided to consult Dr, Shanathala and get her opinion on whether I would ever be able to do anything to my face again. Call me crazy after what I went through, but at the end of the day, I am still a woman and aging concerns me like all of us. From the moment I walked in to her office, I felt the warmth and calm that she put out. She explained to me what happened to me and let me decide if I wanted to take things slow.
I wanted her to do a little filler again, so after 45 minutes of her explaining everything to me, she did, even though I was terrified, and I was thrilled with the results, and I got the courage to do things to my face again with her help.
Thank you Dr. Shanthala,
For being a human being, for showing compassion, for being a professional, for listening, for being amazing at your job, for loving what you do, and loving your patients,for not cutting corners, for being patient and all around for being a beautiful person.

Vampire Facial & Instant Results with Dr. Shanthala

From the moment I consulted with Dr. Shanthala on the phone, I was at ease. She was a calming pres·ence, answering any and all questions before agreeing to meet. At no point did I feel like I was being targeted as a “sale”. Rather, Dr. Shanthala was thoughtful and provided me with a range of options for my perceived problem areas. Upon meeting her, any anxiety I had dissipated. Her office is so warm and welcoming and quickly, felt at home. I got instant results with my first microdermabrasion and even more lasting results with the PRP treatment (commonly referred to as a “vampire facial”). I am looking forward to seeing her regularly going forward, as my skin has never looked better. I feel grateful I reached out to Dr. Shanthala and recommend you all do the same.

acne scar treatment

I had really bad acne scars on my cheeks and received 3 treatments of RF micro needling with PRP at Dr. Shanthala’s office. The result is great and I can definitely see the improvements! Dr. Shanthala has always been professional and patient when answering your questions and providing the treatments.

Micro Needling for Lip Lines and Scars

Dr. Shanthala just performed the 4th of 6 micro needling treatments for my deep lip lines and surgical scars from an accident. The treatment was relatively pain-free with very little/no down time. Dr. Shanthala is an expert at this procedure and was very caring and attentive during the entire procedure which took about 45 minutes. My lip lines and scars have diminished significantly since the first microneedling. My skin looks so much more improved, softened and younger. I recommend this treatment by Dr. Shanthala to anyone who has similar concerns.

I had an amazing experience and results

I have had acne since I was 15 and my mom took me to a different place where I didn’t get any results I was just wasting money on things that weren’t working. 8 months ago my mom took me with her to one of her appointments with Dr. Shanthala and the minute that I walked through the door, she and her then assistant Vanessa were super attentive towards me and they assisted me right away telling me what the best way to treat my acne was. They were incredible nice and I had an amazing experience. I love it because I started to see results right away with the chemical pealings treatment. And every time I walked through those doors I feel really welcome and that I am being taken care and that they have my best interest at heart. Dr. Shanthala is super nice and I really like her.

I am thankful to be one of her patients!

Dr. Shanthala is by far the best doctor I’ve ever met! Acne scars is such a delicate and complicated problem that many struggle with. She is an expert in making her patients feel at ease and is deeply knowledgeable of the many different procedures available. Personally, i’ve struggled with acne since puberty which resulted in scars. I now have a combination of rolling/boxcar on both of my cheeks. Recently, Dr. Shanthala and I sat down and reevaluated my scars and decided on Microneedling RF . I had virtually no downtime with this procedure. I will update my results after I complete 3 treatments. I am so thankful to be one of her patients and I am happy to see her each visit. She is very kind and hardworking and wants to see her patients happy.

Outstanding expertise, detail oriented, kind safe up to date

Visiting Shanthala in Peabody is absolutely the best thing I have done for my self in years. I have tried several medspa type businesses in the past. They were all good, but often they did not stay on top of the latest, safest and best procedures. None of these medspas had the expertise of Shanthala. They also were more about volume of clients, where Shanthala is all about doing what is best, for you , her most important client of the moment. You feel this attitude.. Her approach and consultation are also comfortable for the client, honest detailed information , no high pressure tactics. She is constantly training and attending conferences and classes. She in compassionate, highly intelligent, has a wonderful bedside manner, and a great sense of humor. She holds herself to the highest standards. The environment is meticulous, and so inviting. She is informative, affable and professional. My skin looks great and I had a wonderful time visiting her office . I had a micro needling procedure. A week later my skin looks so beautiful. I have already called to book another appointment. I live closer to Boston, but the skills, service and experience of visiting Shanthala are better, than those offered in areas more convenient to my home. Oh, I also stopped for an amazing crepe at New Art of Gelato, after my visit to Shanthala. What a perfect day. This gelato and crepe place is less than 5 minutes from Shanthala, and the food was delicious. I had a spinach tomato and goat cheese crepe, and freshly made blueberry gelato . My trip to Peabody was completely worth the drive. I also had very little traffic,as I booked my appointment on a Saturday morning. I am so happy I made the effort to visit Shanthala. My entire experience was positive. the trip to Peabody is also very easy , and her office is just off an exit.

Microneedling for acne scarring and lines, 33 year old male

My experience with Dr. Shanthala has been truly amazing and far beyond my expectations. The treatments (microneedling and microneedling with PRP) have been highly effective and I am very grateful for the results. Dr. Shanthala truly cares about the success of the treatments and puts in an extra effort and it really shows. I noticed a significant improvement on my skin overall after the first treatment, my skin looked and felt healthier and the appearance of scars and lines was reduced. After the microneedling with PRP though: WOW. I still can’t believe how much improvement I am seeing! Her office is very welcoming and comfortable with a friendly and efficient staff, I highly recommend and am looking forward to more treatments and improvement!

I have had two treatments of the RF Microneedling and all of my friends have commented on what an improvement it has made to my face. Dr. Shanthala is so wonderful with explaining on how the procedure is performed and what you can expect once the procedure is completed. She always calls you at home to ask you how you are feeling as she honestly cares. I have recommended Dr Shanthala to all my friends.

Don’t feel 68 and shouldn’t look it. Surgery was…

Don’t feel 68 and shouldn’t look it. Surgery was not an option. I made an appointment for consultation with Dr Shanthala. She recommended a series of different treatments spread out over time. We agreed on a course of action.
Actions included botox, Radiesse, thread lift, CO2 laser, and microneedling. I have had all procedures except CO2 laser, which will be performed in February.
Results are encouraging and realistic. People notice that I look better, but not in a “What did you do?” kind of way.

Dr. Shanthala is the best! I have been to other physicians who rush you in and out in 15 minutes. Dr. Shanthala discusses the best options and together we decide the treatment plan. She is truly a beautiful person inside and out.

A pleasurable experience

The location is nice and there is plenty of parking. Once inside it is a very peaceful and relaxing environment. I have done two micro-needling sessions here I was amazed at the results after the first time. My main concern was with my acne scars and the hyper pigmentation that came along with them. My acne scars have improved just after one time, red pigment faded significantly. I have had hyper-pigmentation for over ten years after my severe acne (cystic) went away this is the only thing that has worked for that. The texture of my skin has improved everywhere, my concern was with acne scars but was very happy when my pores reduced in size and my complexion improved everywhere on my face. The micro-needling didn’t hurt it ticked a little bit because of the numbing cream. The second appointment I did Micro-needling with subcision. The subcision there was very little pain , barely anything to complain about. I saw very good results from subcision right away. I recovered fast my face was red for a day, the next day slightly pink and 90% clear on 3rd day on the 4th was completely clear (I wanted the deepest microneedling 2.5mm). With my time at the consultation, and with the doctor on both appointments I never felt like I was being rushed. I had a pleasurable experience and the time spent there I was taken care of, no complaints. Dr. Shanthala listened to what I wanted to do and then did it, very professional aside from being a medical professional she is very nice and caring, talking to me over the phone post op and looking at my skin after in person. The patient coordinator, Maciel is very friendly and knowledgeable, it was easy to book an appointment and, in my experience whenever I called she or Dr. Shanthala answered and helped me. Dorothy did my consultation and it was in depth, I learned a lot about how to take care of my skin from her and Dr. Shanthala. Thank you.

Excellent Doctor

I had a very good experience with Shivananjappa. She is the most sensitive doctor I ever met. She really takes the time to hear what you want, what bothers you and why. She spent so much time with me to discuss what bothered me, gave me a bunch of options and the pros/cons of each and would not let me decide right there what i wanted to do. She wanted to give me time and provided me with material to research. I decided on coolsculpting and very happy with the results. I will continue to see Dr Shivananjappa.

She is truly a remarkable person and professional

I originally went to Dr Shivananjappa’s office after reading all of the reviews from acne patients as I have been struggling with adult acne.  The first time I called the office to make an appt. she actually got on the phone with me as I explained my issues and asked many questions about previous remedies and procedures I had tried over the years.  She spent almost an hour on the phone with me and was so personable yet very professional sharing with me what was possible and what may not be, etc.  I was very impressed with her after meeting for my first appointment and ended up staying after it chatting with her for over 45 mins about other things (like pets!).  She is a very warm yet professional person that made me feel at ease.  I actually ended up going back for a coolsculpt procedure and I simply cannot say enough about this wonderful person as well as how pleased I am with my results.  I’m lucky I live very close to her office but I would encourage anyone considering a procedure to go with Dr Shivananjappa even if you have to drive far!  I have never had such a personable experience with ANY doctor I have ever visited for anything.  She is truly a remarkable person and professional that truly cares about her patients.  Two thumbs up, 5 stars and my gratitude for the treatments she performed that have had such a positive effect on me.

Her clinic is so pretty and she is so friendly

I found doctor Shanthala MD spa clinic while browsing on Yelp.
I got surprised when I found that all the patients are happy. I didn’t hesitate to call her right away and schedule a consultation with her. Her clinic is so pretty and she is so friendly and knowledgeable person. My issue is adult acne. I have been suffering from acne and acne for 5 years now (I am 26 now) and it was bothering me so much. I tried so much medicines and treatments before but none of them worked (they make it worse). Dr. Shanthala talked to me in details about how to take care of my skin and how to understand its need. She gave me some products to use and she advised me to cut dairy from my routine. We both worked together and we were able to control my acne. Acne issues are so hard to solve and the patient should follow the rules. I cleaned my diet from dairy (which I found it hard at the beginning to live without cheese), added more water, green tea, vitamins, and chamomile tea, and stopped covering the acne and the scars with foundation or BB creams (I used to wear makeup daily to cover the acne and the scars). Also, I am trying to control stress by meditation.  After finding the acne trigger (dairy) controlling the acne, we started clearing the skin from the scars. I had two treatments so far, one was PRP with micro-needling and the other one was subcision with RF micro-needling.  I have been visiting Dr. Shanthala now for two months and I am loving the result so far.  She cares about her patients a lot and she wants them to feel apply and satisfied. I highly recommend her.

You can trust both her judgement and skill.

She is a wonderful provider and will not do anything she isn’t 100  percent sure that you need and would benefit from. That is so very rare in this field.
You would be hard pressed to find someone who will take the time she takes and talk you out of just as many things as others will talk you into. You can trust both her judgement and skill.
She doesn’t run this as a business as much as a partnership with you – for you. I can’t say enough about her that’s positive.

At Dr. Shanthala’s the ambience is so different than other spas.

Where do I begin?! At Shanthala’s the ambience is so different than other spas. I felt warm and welcomed as soon as I walked in. While I waitied for my appointment, I was offered refreshments and snacks. Speaking with Shanthala about different treatments, I never felt pressured. She made me feel… Relaxed. Comfortable. Reassured that I was doing the right thing. I was a bit nervous because I had never been to a MedSpa before. I realized though after having my treatments… Microdermabrasion, peels and botox that all these treatments are just like any other form of beauty care. I get my nails done, facials and hair colored. Why can’t I add these beauty treatments to my regimen? And the results? Amazing!!!

Please go and see for yourself this new and exceptional spa.

As we age our looks change. Everyone wants to look their best. The only option used to be a surgical procedure. Shantala has spent several years studying other options and is now able to offer us the latest and safest options at her new Medspa and Laser Center. There is no anesthesia, surgery or down time.

I have experienced several of her new procedures such as Ultherapy, Micro needling and Botox. These procedure are easy and painless. The best part is that you look younger and younger as time passes.

On September 10th, she is having an educational session on Ultherapy. You will learn what it is and what it does. You will even be able to experience exactly how it feels. There is limited space so it is important to reserve a spot.

More important is her Grand Opening on October 6 at 5:30. You will be able to learn about all of the wonderful new procedures and products Shantla has to offer.

I could go on and on. Please go and see for yourself this new and exceptional spa.

My skin looks more even, smoother

Dr. Shanthala recently recommended Microneedling to solve some of my skin issues (minor dark spots, acne scarring, fine lines). She has only performed one of the suggested 3 treatments and already (1 week later) I can see a HUGE difference. My skin looks more even, smoother and it has taken care of a lot of dryness I had been experiencing. I am impressed! The after effects of the treatment can produce redness that lasted the rest of the day, but it was completely gone by the next morning. Dr. Shanthala is great, she makes suggestions, while somehow still complimenting you at the same time, and without being too pushy. AND, you would be hard pressed to find her prices elsewhere. If you do, I doubt the treatments would be performed by an MD. I will definitely be going back.

Dr. Shanthala was extremely knowledgeable.

First impression, the shop was beautiful, clean, bright, and airy. The doctor didn’t try to push any services on me, we talked about what I wanted, and she made suggestions for a treatment plan. Dr. Shanthala was extremely knowledgeable. It was nice to be able to sit and discuss with the doctor directly instead of through a form or nurse. I had the microderm abrasion, and got some skincare products that I love, and can’t wait to go back for further treatment. I felt great after leaving, and look forward to going back.

The results were fantastic.

I want to review ShanthalaMD Med Spa from a different prospective.
Everyone knows someone that has had breast cancer and had chemotherapy. Many women also have hysterectomies to stop the flow of estrogen that can fuel the cancer. When this happens to someone young (and someone not so young) it can have a negative impact on their ability to have intimacy.
This was a problem for me. I was happy to be alive and accepted the changes that occurred…after all, I was cured of cancer. But, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse and difficulties with intimacy weighed heavily on me and my husband.
I want to shout, shout, shout out to the world…I have found a simple solution for me…
CO2RE is a laser procedure that restores vaginal tone and treats dryness. I had a series of three treatments at ShanthalaMD and I am thrilled with the results. Even after the first treatment I noticed improvement. Each treatment only lasted about 10-15 minutes and was essentially painless. I also saw a great improvement with urinary symptoms…leaking urine essentially stopped.
Dr. Shanthala did the procedure herself and was very respectful and professional. It was not an unpleasant or painful procedure and was really fast.
The results were fantastic. I (and my husband) am very happy.
I will be returning to ShanthalaMD to have the PRP shot treatment that is non surgical. It helps with sexual response.
So there it is, I couldn’t be happier. Thank You Dr. Shanthala

You feel like you’re her only patient!

I had never had anything done before, and I wanted to look natural and “refreshed,” not like I’d had anything done. I also wanted a doctor to do any procedure. I had Botox, Restalyne, and CoolSculpting done. I just had CoolSculpting done a week ago, so I’m waiting for results, but the Botox and Restalyne (with some PRP) was amazing.

I’ve always been taking a good care of my skin but lately felt that a little more was needed.

My cheeks started looking hollow and saggy and that “11” mark between my eyebrows drove me insane. But I still wanted to look natural, not made up and didn’t want anyone confusing me with my daughter’s sister.
I came to see Dr. Shanthala, and a few minutes into our first meeting felt very comfortable with her. She totally understood what I need and suggested the best solution. I ended up doing a very small dose of Botox between my eyebrows, and a combo of PRP and Restalyne to fill the hollow areas. Omg!!! The result was amazing! Exactly what I needed! No bruises, no adverse reactions -nothing! Just a healthy natural glow 😉 I couldn’t be happier! Thank you so much, Dr. Shanthala!

CO2RE® Intima and PRP, Boston, MA

It is such a blessing to find a doctor like Dr. Shanthala. She is extremely knowledgeable about the field of vaginal rejuvenation. She is focused, skilled, exacting and a consummate professional. She is truly one-of-a-kind with her incredible depth of knowledge, compassionate care, and the amount of time she spends with you. She is a true educator. She, truly, cares about her patients. I had been suffering for the last 8 years with vaginal atrophy. The dryness was so severe, sexual relations seemed impossible. When I came across Dr. Shanthala’s work, I talked to her extremely experienced staff who are sweet, knowledgeable and truly professional. They came across trustworthy and very easy to talk to. After then speaking with Dr. Shanthala, a very loving spirit and true educator, I knew I was in good hands. She listens carefully to all your needs and believes in educating all of her patients. Dr. Shanthala was very thorough during our first meeting which lasted a good hour because she wanted me to truly understand the CO2RE® Intima procedure and she wanted to examine me thoroughly. As Dr. Shanthala prepped me for the treatment, and throughout the next 30 minutes or so, she took the time necessary to make me feel comfortable, at ease, and explained in detail exactly what was to occur each step in the process. She continually checked my pain level while ensuring that the treatment was thorough enough to get the job done. I found the CO2RE® Intima rarely painful. What is amazing is that I am, definitely, noticing that the dryness is diminishing. I had 2 treatments and then she introduced me to PRP which many call the O shot. The procedure uses the patients’ drawn blood to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation. Platelets extracted from the blood, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), are then placed in a syringe and injected into an area near the clitoris and an area just inside the vagina. Those platelets then stimulate the growth of new cells in the injected areas, making those areas more sensitive to the touch. I won’t know the outcome until week 2 or 3. Dr. Shanthala, most likely, has more experience and knowledge of the CO2RE® Intima and PRP than the many of the doctors performing in the Boston area. Dr. Shanthala is that rare physician that has a gentle spirit, an impressive knowledge base of various state-of-the-art treatments available, and a pricing model that allows one to afford the much-needed care. Regardless of where you live, she’s worth the drive. Hands down the best experience I could have asked for. Cynthia

Her clinic is so pretty and she is so friendly

I found doctor Shanthala MD spa clinic while browsing on Yelp.
I got surprised when I found that all the patients are happy. I didn’t hesitate to call her right away and schedule a consultation with her. Her clinic is so pretty and she is so friendly and knowledgeable person. My issue is adult acne. I have been suffering from acne and acne for 5 years now (I am 26 now) and it was bothering me so much. I tried so much medicines and treatments before but none of them worked (they make it worse). Dr. Shanthala talked to me in details about how to take care of my skin and how to understand its need. She gave me some products to use and she advised me to cut dairy from my routine. We both worked together and we were able to control my acne. Acne issues are so hard to solve and the patient should follow the rules. I cleaned my diet from dairy (which I found it hard at the beginning to live without cheese), added more water, green tea, vitamins, and chamomile tea, and stopped covering the acne and the scars with foundation or BB creams (I used to wear makeup daily to cover the acne and the scars). Also, I am trying to control stress by meditation.  After finding the acne trigger (dairy) controlling the acne, we started clearing the skin from the scars. I had two treatments so far, one was PRP with micro-needling and the other one was subcision with RF micro-needling.  I have been visiting Dr. Shanthala now for two months and I am loving the result so far.  She cares about her patients a lot and she wants them to feel apply and satisfied. I highly recommend her.

You can trust both her judgement and skill.

She is a wonderful provider and will not do anything she isn’t 100  percent sure that you need and would benefit from. That is so very rare in this field.
You would be hard pressed to find someone who will take the time she takes and talk you out of just as many things as others will talk you into. You can trust both her judgement and skill.
She doesn’t run this as a business as much as a partnership with you – for you. I can’t say enough about her that’s positive.

She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.

From the moment I met Dr. Shanthala, I could see that this woman exudes CLASS.  She has the most professional and caring demeanor. She is also a wealth of information about all of the services she provides.  This is a very knowledgeable woman. Did I mention that she is a doctor?! Not only does she perform all procedures with the utmost care, but she also is very aware of sterile technique. As a Registered Nurse, I find this trait very appealing. She takes the time to educate each of her patients and makes them feel completely comfortable before she proceeds with any treatment.

After consulting with Dr. Shanthala, I decided on micro needling. As a woman in my early 40s, I am starting to see uneven skin tones, sagginess and fine wrinkles around my eyes, forehead and laugh lines. What I love about the micro needling is that it is an all-in-one type of procedure. It helps with wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tightening, large pores and acne. I have had 2 treatments and have already seen remarkable improvements in my skin. I notice less wrinkle lines, a smoother appearance and more even skin tones.  The best part is there is no down time for this procedure. Before visiting her med spa, I was on an acne medicine for years. Since I have been seeing Dr. Shanthala, I ‘ve been able to stop taking this medication! My skin has never looked better.

I can honestly say that Dr. Shanthala has become one of my favorite people. She is passionate about what she does and her customer service is impeccable. I absolutely love going to her medical spa. The ambiance is inviting, the care is top-notch and the staff is supportive, inviting and caring. Take my advice and experience it for yourself. I can promise, you will not be disappointed!

Reassured that I was doing the right thing. I was a bit nervous because I had never been to a MedSpa before. I realized though after having my treatments… Microdermabrasion, peels and botox that all these treatments are just like any other form of beauty care. I get my nails done, facials and hair colored. Why can’t I add these beauty treatments to my regimen? And the results? Amazing!!!

You feel like you’re her only patient!

I had never had anything done before, and I wanted to look natural and “refreshed,” not like I’d had anything done. I also wanted a doctor to do any procedure. I had Botox, Restalyne, and CoolSculpting done. I just had CoolSculpting done a week ago, so I’m waiting for results, but the Botox and Restalyne (with some PRP) was amazing. Dr. Shanthala and her staff are so warm, welcoming, and professional. I was never rushed, and everyone made an effort to get to know me. Dr. Shanthala really tailors each procedure to her client–there are so many options!–and she was thoughtful about what I needed–and what I didn’t–and was so comforting. She immediately put me at ease. You feel like you’re her only patient!

I went to see Shanthala to correct th hump on my nose with filler. Her office is very warm and welcoming. Shanthala was amazing! She welcomed me like a friend she had known for years. She sat with me and talked me through her thoughts and ideas. She never pressured me to get anything done the contrary she told me I was beautiful and didn’t need anything! She filled the hump on my nose with Restalyn And I couldn’t be happier! She made it natural and subtle I love Shanthala!!

Excellent correction of horribly deformed post surgical eye hollows by Dr. Shanthala

Dr. Shantala used Retylane to smooth out the hollows under my eyes. I previously had unsuccessful cosmetic tear trough surgery that left me horribly deformed. I had corrective surgery that allowed me to go out in pubic again, but there was much need for improvement. My ocular surgeon asked me not to get fillers, fearing I would mess up his work. Nonetheless, after having had several successful procedures with Dr. Shanthala (Botox, Ultherapy and CoolSculpt), I trusted that she could help me and would not have agreed to do something that was risky or beyond her expertise. I made the leap of faith and had the Restylane injection and I am thrilled I did. My under eye area is now fully restored to normal. Because she is a physician and has that deep understanding of anatomy, Dr. Shanthala is really a pro at using fillers. Rather than injecting the filler with needles, she uses a tiny cannula that she passes between tissues. It is slower, methodical, less painful, no bruising or bleeding as she is not breaking through tissue. It’s amazing and the results are spectacular. BTW, I also had great results with CoolSculpt to my mid section (no more muffin top) and an Ultherapy treatment that fixed the sagging skin on my neck and jowl line (which had previously been treated at a spa with an RF device that was time consuming, expensive and did very little to correct the problem). Dr. Shanthala is also a very warm person who really listens to you and will spend all the time with you that you need. Never rushed, very attentive.

Wonderful doctor and practice! – Peabody, MA

Dr. Shanthala is an amazing physician and true artist who cares deeply about her work and her patients. I felt as if I were at a spa with the level of pampering and personal attention that I received from both the doctor and her staff. From my consultation appointment to my actual procedure, I knew that I was in good hands. Dr. Shanthala listened to my concerns and wants before recommending the procedures that would give me the exact look I desired. I am thrilled with the outcome and am looking forward to returning to her wonderful practice.

Fantastic experience!

Fantastic! Shanthala is a fantastic educator! She explains everything in great detail, and when performing her work, there is no feeling of her being rushed. She is dedicated to her immediate patient, and is an artist in her detail. She used restylane Defyne for my perioral rejuvenation and I love it! Not a single bruise.

Restylane Injection for Under Eye Hollows

I went to Dr. Shanthala for a consultaiton for a few concerns I had about my face appearing tired. She was very observant, asked me about my concerns, about my lifestyle and observed me carefully while I was rambling away. She explained to me that some of the procedures I had in mind ( from googling of course ) were actually not needed for my situation. She is a doctor with hight ethics and will not perfom a procedure on her patients unless she believes it is the best option for the patients skin type and age! After the consultation she gave me the best options for my case and also took away some of my insecurities. She has the ability to make you feel comfortable to express any concern you might have. The procedure I had done, Restylane Injection for under eye hollows, made such a difference on my tired looking face! Dr. Shanthala was so careful while performing and explained clearly the after care needed. I had a great experience and I would recommed her to anyone who has any appearance concern that they would like to address !

I give Doctor Shanthala my highest recommendation, praise & thanks.

This was my first visit to Doc. Shanthala. I was a little nervous but soon felt a strong sense of trust. She explained, so I could understand, what was happening biologically to my aging face. I asked for her opinion and she suggested Restylane Defyne for my lips. The thought of having my lips done, had never entered my mind but her explanation made sense. I agreed and am thrilled with the results! My husband has been very complimentary and a good friend told me, I looked ten years younger. I give Doctor Shivananjappa my highest recommendation, praise & thanks.

Thank you Dr. Shanthala for making me look and feel beautiful

I went to Dr. Shanthala for my “tired eyes”. I was constantly being told from people how tired I looked. I am a 37 year old mother of 3 that works late nights as a bartender, so between the late hours, lack of sleep, natural aging I needed some help. We sat down and discussed the best, most effective options and decided to go with Restylane and using a cannula during the procedure. There was no bruising or down time. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Thank you Dr. Shanthala for making me look and feel beautiful and of course less tired.

Amazing experience with Restylane Under-eye Filler

I want to start off by saying Dr. Shanthala is amazing at what she does and she truly goes above and beyond for her patients! My experience with her was absolutely incredible and I would encourage anybody interested in Restylane Under-eye fillers to schedule a consolation with her. I plan to go back to her in the future for any of my cosmetic needs. She is SO amazing at what she does and I couldn’t be happier with my results. My personal experience: I am a 24 year-old female and this was my very first cosmetic procedure, so you can only imagine how nervous I was to have this done for the first time. I met with Dr. Shanthala for a consultation in March of 2018 since I had severely noticeable tear troughs. Although I am a younger adult, I would go to work every day and people would tell me that I looked extremely tired. It used to make me very sad hearing this, and I was extremely self-conscious of the large tear troughs on my face. After meeting with Dr. Shanthala for my consultation, I was absolutely ready to get the procedure done without hesitation. She talked me through every step of the way including the prep before and after the treatment. She explained the anatomy of my face and what fillers would work best for me. She calmed all of my nerves that I had, and I was SO excited to get the procedure done. I came back in April of 2018 to get the filler done and the whole process was absolutely amazing. Dr. Shanthala was extremely skilled, careful and comforting throughout the whole process. I followed the pre-treatment guidelines, so there was no bruising or swelling either (which was amazing!). It was a dream come true for me. I was SO excited to go back to work on Monday morning without the tear troughs anymore. Today being roughly one month after getting the treatment done, I couldn’t be happier with the results. I am able to confidently walk around without people telling me that I look extremely tired anymore!! I can’t thank Dr. Shanthala enough from the bottom of my heart. I am beyond blessed for having a Doctor like her in my life! Absolutely amazing experience.

extremely satisfied with the outcome

I started noticing lines in my forehead and did not like what I saw. I called Dr Shanthala….as a friend had treatments done there and was extremely satisfied with the outcome….and went in. Imagine my surprise at how warm and welcoming they were. I do have to say I was a bit apprehensive…but the staff, including Dr Shanthala made me feel comfortable. The thing that really surprised me was that I wanted to do Botox in a few areas but Dr Shanthala stated I did not need it done in all those areas. She proceeded with the Botox, only where she felt it was needed, and I cannot thank her enough!! Not only do I look 10 years younger, but I’m still aghast that unlike most other spas, the Doctor did not perform a treatment that she felt I did not need. If you are thinking of Botox, or any other treatment, please seek out Dr Shanthala. You will be happy you did.

Her clientele adores her and so will you!!!!!

I recently went to ShanthalaMD,Medspa and Laser Center to request an evaluation on what can be done to enhance my appearance.I am 60 years old and take very good care of  my body and skin and was really disliking the biological aging process no matter how good you take care of your skin you can’t stop the aging process.After a thorough evaluation and informing/teaching me about the newest procedures out there…we decided to go with Instalift and juvaderm,since I have  sagging on my lower face area.She has a”good eye” and knows  just by looking at you what will be best for you to enhance your appearance.There was no pain with the juvaderm(filler) and with the instalift I felt a pinching sensation for a few seconds,very tolerable.The results were  “instant”.It was amazing!I then went back to my activities of daily living…no pain,redness,swelling or soreness.Her bedside manner was very comforting,supportive and gentle.She is accurate and precise.Her work is phenomenal and  it shows.She is  highly educated and is there for YOU!Her Medspa  on the Northshore in Peabody ,Mass. is beautiful and immaculate.I would highly recommend her to all!!!Her clientele adores her and so will you!!!!!

Silhouette InstaLift with Dr.ShanthalaMD

I couldn’t make up my mind. Faced with some down turning of my skin on outer lip area and noticeable jowels I wanted to do something to tighten up these areas. Dr. Shanthala suggested Silhouette Instalift. I had the procedure and couldn’t be happier. It was essentially painless and took less than an hour. I noticed a lift immediately. Went to dinner that night and slept well. Great treatment by a very skilled physician. Good decision.

Active 59 Yo Woman with Some Laxity in Lower Face, Wonderful Results with Instalift and Juverderm

My husband and I are planning a trip to Europe and I wanted to freshen up my appearance with a procedure that would have quick results. Dr. Shanthala suggested Instalift as the best treatment. The procedure involves threading Sculptra ‘threads’ in the desired area, which for me was the lower face, and then ‘lifting’ the threads to create the desired effect. Dr. Shanthala explained the procedure in careful detail and performed the ‘lift’ with precision and an artistic eye. I hadn’t planned on getting any filler in my lips, but Dr. Shantha recommended it. Not wanting an exaggerated ‘pucker’, I was hesitant. Dr. Shanthala was extremely patient and reassured me my lips would look natural. It is an understatement to say that I am thrilled with the results of the Instalift and Juvederm lip filler. My appearance looks refreshed and more youthful. Neither procedure was painful and my husband and I were able to go to dinner that evening. Dr. Shantala is extremely talented, creative, and precise. She is aware of all the latest procedures, and was keenly aware of what to choose to suit my specific needs. I feel extremely fortunate to have found her and consider her a treasure. Run, don’t walk for an appointment. You will be thrilled that you did.

She’s amazing and very knowledgeable. I wanted to have a sillioutte Insta lift but after looking at my face she said that I need some fillers and prp and I’m glad I listened to her. I even paid way less than Insta lift. She doesn’t care about making extra money, she cares about the patient’s needs. I would definitely recommend her and I’ll go see her whenever I need a procedure down.

Ulthera

Thank you for all your help Dr Shanthala Shivananjappa!

OK so after a lot of research and going back and forth and reading… And rereading… The reviews I decided to for a consultation for ulthera.
I read the bad and the good and the.. Eh. I was scared because of the bad reviews and worried about the eh reviews too because I didn’t want to waste money… But mostly I was afraid when I read some of the horror stories.
Many people believe that the bad stories are planted by competitors and some believe the same about the good ones as well.. So where does that leave you and I? Well we have to sift through the wreckage and make a decision. I really put thought into all this and what I have come up …
I think many of the reviews on both sides are valid and true… I think many people have been hurt and many have had not too much improvement and many have had amazing results. I think most of the difference lies in who does it. And I don’t think that just because someone is an MD or PS it will guarantee anything. Sure it’s better to have a doctor then a technician… However.. I have had some very very bad doctors. I can go on and on about that.. But I won’t because I will get off topic. Maybe I’ll submit some more reviews so you can see what I have been through.. It’s God awful.
So I believe.. Now more then ever.. It’s totally dependent on who does this procedure and research is vital to find that person.
With all this in mind.. When I read about Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa after moving to the area, I figured a consult couldn’t hurt.
I was impressed with the time she took to eleviate any concerns plus knowing she herself had the procedure done made me feel better. She is very beautiful.
I was immediately put at ease and decided that I would roll the dice.
I am very happy I did. It was exactly what I needed and I have complete trust in her. If you meet her you’ll see why I say that.. I have also since had fillers and botox and plan on having more.
The results so far have been great and I look forward to even more improvement. I can see how this is not a cure all for everyone but… It certainly gave me exactly what I was looking for and I believe this doctor would have definitely steered me away if she felt it would not work for me. She is that honest… And it’s a great therapy.. Just please please do your research before doing this with just anyone. Thank you for all your help Shanthala Shivananjappa!

I realized though after having my treatments… Microdermabrasion, peels and botox that all these treatments are just like any other form of beauty care. I get my nails done, facials and hair colored. Why can’t I add these beauty treatments to my regimen? And the results? Amazing!!!

Ultherapy is awesome!

Shanthala is fantastic! She is thorough and really spends a lot of time with her patients. She explains procedures well, goes over concerns that you may have and gives you realistic expectations of the results you can expect. I had Ultherapy and after reading several reviews that it was a painful procedure, I was pleasantly surprised. Not bad at all and I love the results. I highly recommend a consult with Shanthala and trust her with any procedure. You won’t be disappointed!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH DR. SHANTHALA!!!!

I first walked into Dr. Shanthala’s Med Spa for a demonstration over a year ago. I left to” think about it”.
I had had injectables in the past and the procedure was not always pleasant and the results not always so good either. However, as the year passed and the more I looked in the mirror, the more I knew I wanted to do something, and boy am I glad I did.
The consultation with Dr. Shanthala put me right at ease, she was patient and informative. She explained everything in detail and she made knowledgeable recommendations. We decided to go with a combination of modified Ultherapy and Bellafill. And I just LOVE the results. Her technique was so different than the other physician’s technique, albeit more time consuming. She actually disperses the product throughout the area of need rather than in just one spot. She actually gave me CHEEKBONES!!!
Let me also add that her place is meticulous, warm and inviting. She really cares about each of her patients. She called me the next day to see how I was feeling and then asked me to come by a week later to see how I looked! She is such a warm, caring human being, I am so happy and proud to be her patient and am looking forward to my my next treatment which will be a combination of Kybella injections and modified Ultherapy to my neck region for even more great results and an even more youthful me, guided by her skilled hands. After all who doesn’t want to grow younger?? THANK YOU SO MUCH DR. SHANTHALA!!!! You are amazing. I am so glad I found YOU.

Ultherapy is a totally noninvasive treatment that I had at ShanthalaMD Medspa.

Ultherapy has made a difference in how I feel about myself. As I’ve aged, I have noticed that the skin on my face is not as tight and firm as it used to be.
Ultherapy is a totally noninvasive treatment that I had at ShanthalaMD Medspa. I am so happy with the results. I feel that I’m putting my best face forward. An added benefit is that it also lifted my eyebrows.
Thank you Dr. Shanthala.

Full Face and Neck Ultherapy – Peabody, MA

I’m in my mid sixties. My face was falling…I had jowels! How this happened to me…I just don’t know. I did not want a surgical facelift with anesthesia, recovery time and unpredictable results. Looking fresher and maybe ‘a little bit younger’ were my immediate goals.
The answer…ULTHERAPY. Completely noninvasive, in office skin tightening procedure. So, I started investigating. What, how, and where. What Ultherapy is … It is a totally noninvasive procedure with no downtime. How Ultherapy works…ultrasound is used to tighten skin. Where…ShanthalaMD Medspa in Peabody, MA.
So the journey began. I read reviews. I scanned the Internet for information. I decided on the what and where…Ultherapy at ShanthalaMD.
OK. I have to admit. It was somewhat uncomfortable but totally tolerable. And, yes, I would do it again since I was actually able to tolerate the discomfort.
The Medspa was so beautiful and serene. Soft music played in the background and the staff was very caring.
Dr. Shanthala was very professional and yet very personal. I immediately felt I was in the right place.
The procedure took a while and Dr. Shanthala did the Ultherapy while reclined on a comfortable table with a warm blanket on me and a pillow under my knees. Dr. Shanthala was very caring and was aware of the discomfort that I experienced at times and took time to talk to me and comfort me as the procedure progressed.
When the procedure was completed I felt no after effects and went on my merry way.
Although I had some immediate tightening of my skin…maybe due to the slight swelling of the skin…the true results were not apparent till around three months later. Apparently Ultherapy promotes collagen production and I guess that takes time.
I’m seven months out and I am thrilled with the results. The results are not ‘face lift’ results but a subtle but very obvious tightening of my skin. Jowels are gone, my neck looks better and my eyes look more open.
Alas, nobody has mentioned that I look like I had ‘something done’. But what I do hear is ‘you look great!, ‘you look refreshed!’ Comments like that.
There are many places that offer Ultherapy and I feel like I have chosen the best place to have the procedure…ShanthalaMD Medspa. Professional, personal, expert procedure by a highly trained Doctor.
No regrets

Ultherapy to Maintainthe Facelift – Peabody, MA

I am almost 70 years old and maintaining my youthful look once in 2 years by doing
ultherapy with Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa for the second time.
I had an issue after doing a facelift under my chin. For some reasons one side was
still droopy after a surgery. I had a spectacular results after the first time. i did a one
procedure on one side and twice on other side – all at the same procedure. The results where subtle at the first few weeks and then kept improving to the point that
people were looking at me and asking if I had a procedure done again, but the results
kept improving and after 2 years I came back for the maintenance having it done again 2 years after. I just want to maintain a best look that I can possible master and one and only Doctor for me is Dr. Shanthala at the dr. Shanthala Spa in Peabody, MA.
She is so thorrow!, so, caring, so professional. She makes me so comfortable. I don’t feel much of a discomfort. She is extreamly attentive. I enjoy any procedure done by Dr. Shanthala. She is a perfection!!! Highly recommended!!!!

Ultherapy at Shanthala MedSpa in Peabody, MA – Totally Worth It!

I’m a 55 year old woman and over the last few years I’ve been noticing jowls and under eye bags forming as well as wrinkles on my neck. Shanthala MedSpa is adjacent to my gym, and I decided to schedule a consult based on some great reviews from fellow gym-goers. Here’s my experience:

I scheduled an exploratory consult with Dr. Shanthala. Her office is lovely. Indian inspired decor and very peaceful and calm. Dr. Shanthala took time in explaining the various options available to me, their course of treatment, expected outcomes and cost. She really took her time learning my needs and my comfort level. I consider myself to be pretty natural in my approach to beauty treatments, and I didn’t want anything that would look like I had “work done,” so with the Dr.’s guidance, I settled on Ultherapy.

I was able to schedule an after-work appointment on the evening before a 3 day weekend. I took Arnica for the week before my treatment (having read reviews, I was prepared for possible bruising, and didn’t want to go to work looking like I had been beaten up).

The treatment rooms at Shanthala MedSpa are very clean, with a few lovely Indian touches to make them feel serene. Dr. Shanthala explained the procedure to me, showed me the equipment and gave me a few squeeze balls just in case the pain got too bad. I appreciated her describing everything she was doing as she performed the procedure, and also appreciated her frequent check-ins regarding my pain level. Honestly, this was not a painful procedure. I was offered the chance to stop for a break and some water or herbal tea, but there was really no need. I don’t think I have any superhuman tolerance for pain, but I can honestly say it was not bad at all. We did my face and neck, and the procedure itself lasted for roughly 1.5 hours (maybe + / -).

I was sent home with a sheet outlining potential problems as well as the Dr.’s phone number and instructions to call her if I felt any discomfort or had any questions.

I experienced no bruising (yay), and for the first few weeks only some mild soreness in my neck (and occasional weird twinges in my scalp).

I’m now roughly 2 months in, and the ultimate compliment was having a co-worker tell me I looked “terrific” and ask me if I had been doing some new workout routine (ummmm, no….).

I am very happy with the early results of my ultherapy. My under eye bags are gone, my jowls have almost vanished, and I feel like I can see my cheekbones again.

I totally credit Dr. Shanthala for my awesome transformation – she’s a board certified MD, and combines that high level of credibility with the skill of an artist. Thank you Dr. Shanthala!!

Excellent correction of horribly deformed post surgical eye hollows by Dr. Shanthala

Dr. Shantala used Retylane to smooth out the hollows under my eyes. I previously had unsuccessful cosmetic tear trough surgery that left me horribly deformed. I had corrective surgery that allowed me to go out in pubic again, but there was much need for improvement. My ocular surgeon asked me not to get fillers, fearing I would mess up his work. Nonetheless, after having had several successful procedures with Dr. Shanthala (Botox, Ultherapy and CoolSculpt), I trusted that she could help me and would not have agreed to do something that was risky or beyond her expertise. I made the leap of faith and had the Restylane injection and I am thrilled I did. My under eye area is now fully restored to normal. Because she is a physician and has that deep understanding of anatomy, Dr. Shanthala is really a pro at using fillers. Rather than injecting the filler with needles, she uses a tiny cannula that she passes between tissues. It is slower, methodical, less painful, no bruising or bleeding as she is not breaking through tissue. It’s amazing and the results are spectacular. BTW, I also had great results with CoolSculpt to my mid section (no more muffin top) and an Ultherapy treatment that fixed the sagging skin on my neck and jowl line (which had previously been treated at a spa with an RF device that was time consuming, expensive and did very little to correct the problem). Dr. Shanthala is also a very warm person who really listens to you and will spend all the time with you that you need. Never rushed, very attentive.

Ultherapy for my Neck Made a Significant Improvement!! – Peabody, MA

I had a significant amount of wrinkling on my neck for a 55 year old. Dr. S recommended ultherapy. She made me comfortable and stayed with me throughout the procedure. No one else touched me. Dr. S performs the procedures in her office herself, unlike most other med spas. I am very happy with the results and with Dr. S. I trust her recommendations and judgement. Don’t go anywhere else – she is an MD.

Dr Shanthala Shivanajappa was amazingly gentle

despite all the talk of it being painful, I found that it was minimal, of course, Doctor Shanthala Shivanajappa, was amazingly gentle and if need be would stop and give you a break. The Ultherapy itself
is definitely worth every penny!! Been 6 months since first had it done and is better every day. Get even
more compliments now. Although I was glowing right after it was done, I am now seeing more and more
firmer skin on neck and jaw line.

Great experience

Dr. Shanthala was very professional and knowledgeable. She listened to all my concerns and took the time to explain different procedures. I had coolsculpting a few months back and I feel was very successful. Then I had ultherapy a few days ago which I am still waiting for results.The office was clean and friendly. They even called a few days later to see how I was doing. I would highly recommend Shanthala.

Amazing Personalized Experience

Dr. Shanthala is a beautiful person, inside and out, and this is reflected in her practice, methods and results. She is meticulous and caring; which is a rare combination. You never feel rushed and always feel that you are important. She treats every person as an individual, and she subtly adjusts and accentuates each person’s own beauty. I am so happy with my decision to visit her. She has subtly filled in wrinkles and hollow spots on my face with fillers and recently I had a lower face Ultherapy session. When she uses fillers there are no glaringly obvious adjustments; so you just look well rested and radiant. I am so happy I found her.

Her clinic is so pretty and she is so friendly

I found doctor Shanthala MD spa clinic while browsing on Yelp.
I got surprised when I found that all the patients are happy. I didn’t hesitate to call her right away and schedule a consultation with her. Her clinic is so pretty and she is so friendly and knowledgeable person. My issue is adult acne. I have been suffering from acne and acne for 5 years now (I am 26 now) and it was bothering me so much. I tried so much medicines and treatments before but none of them worked (they make it worse). Dr. Shanthala talked to me in details about how to take care of my skin and how to understand its need. She gave me some products to use and she advised me to cut dairy from my routine. We both worked together and we were able to control my acne. Acne issues are so hard to solve and the patient should follow the rules. I cleaned my diet from dairy (which I found it hard at the beginning to live without cheese), added more water, green tea, vitamins, and chamomile tea, and stopped covering the acne and the scars with foundation or BB creams (I used to wear makeup daily to cover the acne and the scars). Also, I am trying to control stress by meditation.  After finding the acne trigger (dairy) controlling the acne, we started clearing the skin from the scars. I had two treatments so far, one was PRP with micro-needling and the other one was subcision with RF micro-needling.  I have been visiting Dr. Shanthala now for two months and I am loving the result so far.  She cares about her patients a lot and she wants them to feel apply and satisfied. I highly recommend her.

I’ve had great results from Dr. Shanthala’s treatments and recommend her highly.

I’ve had great results from Dr. Shanthala’s treatments and recommend her highly.  She takes the time to really get to know your face and what you want to see change, then she makes recommendations.  No pressure, you can choose or choose not to go with any of the treatments.  When she is working, she takes are time and stands back to assess through out the process, like a true artist. Other places I’ve gone, give you some shots of Botox and then you’re out the door in no time.  Not here, she is a perfectionist and it shows in the results.  I even agreed to let her use my “before and after” photos following my Ulta Therapy.  I received lots of compliments from friends and family.  I believe in doing what you can to remain youthful short of surgery and invasive procedures – that’s what Dr. Shanthala’s practice is all about.  Others have mentioned her bedside manner and it’s all true. She is beautiful inside and out and you always feel well cared for in her office.  She makes the experience fun and you feel like you’re handing out with a girlfriend when you’re there. She offers tea and light snacks and does all she can to make you feel comfortable and cared for, she’s simply the BEST!

Now I look bright and awake.

I always had hollow areas on my face and looked drawn and tired. I constantly changed my make-up because I was never pleased with my looks Since having ultherapy and fillers at Shanthala MD, the hollow is gone and I have a soft fullness in my face. Now I look bright and awake. The look is subtle and effective. Perfect!

Dr. Shanthala and her staff go above and beyond to afford you the best experience

This was such a lovely day: a serene, inviting setting; caregiving at its best! The little “niceties”, the extra touches, Shanthala and her staff go above and beyond to afford you the best experience you could have! My Ulthera facelift, and Shanthala’s calm, from start to finish, assuaged any fears that I had. Shanthala was patient, caring, and specific about each part of this procedure. I enjoyed the ongoing eclectic conversation and thought less about what was happening to my cheek than to what to see in Paris! I was reminded that my beloved grandmother always watched “Queen for a Day” (Yes, I am dating myself!) and she deserved to be that in her life. Well, this is the most apt description I can offer about this experience…I was the “Queen for a Day!” and I enjoyed every minute of it! I am looking forward to my “after pics”…this was so worth it! We are so worth it, ladies! Thank you, Shanthala, for a truly lovely experience!

Dr. Shanthala is very thorough, very skillful and knowledgeable.

I had a few procedures done in the last few days:
Ultherapy first and Coolsculpting next day.
What an amazing experience! Dr. Shanthala is very thorough, very skillful and knowledgeable. She also has a very attending stuff.
I was pampered with so much attention and comfort.
I feel that I can completely trust her with all my treatments . 
I could see results right after the procedure! Amazing! Just look at my photos before and after !
I feel that ShantalaMD Spa is a place that I will attend for a life time. Thank you.

Amazing spa with tradition decoration

Where to begin…….well, when you walk in the door your breath is taken away with the beauty and calmness of this spa. You feel relaxed and pampered before you have even spoken a word. The staff are a pleasure to deal with and exude warmth and make you feel comfortable. The treatment rooms are closer to a high end hotel than a treatment room.

I had the pleasure of meeting Shanthala a while back. She was in the beginning stages of opening her MedSpa. I was totally blown away with the number of years of research, courses and training she did prior to opening. Her medical knowledge and experience with invasive surgical beauty procedures led her down this path. She is a warm and caring person who is interested in making you feel better about yourself and how you look.

Have I had anything done? You bet! I went to the info session on ultherapy and signed up for a treatment right away. I had a full face and neck facelift. It is not an immediate change and therefore you have subtle changes over the next few weeks. The treatment was not uncomfortable. A few spots had a quick painful sensation, but overall it was less painful than shocked by static electricity you get from a rug. The next day I had a minor amount of tenderness or a slight itchy feeling that lasted a few days. The next day I returned and has fillers done on my cheeks, lip area, and around the eyes. I also had Botox between my brows. The change is subtle, but amazing. People won’t walk up to you and exclaim “Wow. You look so different”, but they will notice something is different.

I have been so pleased so far and next plan to do the cool sculpting. I have hated wearing dresses or skirts without pantyhose because my thighs rub together and cause discomfort. I also want to rid myself of the extra belly I have. So, Shanthala, prepare to see me soon.

I was hesitant on doing all this stuff for myself, but as my sister said, “You never treat yourself. So ahead and pamper yourself.”

Go for a consult and then make an educated decision to go for it. You won’t regret it.

Please go and see for yourself this new and exceptional spa.

As we age our looks change. Everyone wants to look their best. The only option used to be a surgical procedure. Shantala has spent several years studying other options and is now able to offer us the latest and safest options at her new Medspa and Laser Center. There is no anesthesia, surgery or down time.

I have experienced several of her new procedures such as Ultherapy, Micro needling and Botox. These procedure are easy and painless. The best part is that you look younger and younger as time passes.

On September 10th, she is having an educational session on Ultherapy. You will learn what it is and what it does. You will even be able to experience exactly how it feels. There is limited space so it is important to reserve a spot.

More important is her Grand Opening on October 6 at 5:30. You will be able to learn about all of the wonderful new procedures and products Shantla has to offer.

I could go on and on. Please go and see for yourself this new and exceptional spa.

Thank you Dr. Shanthala!!!!

I had done 2 procedures in September of 2014:
Coolscalpting and Ultherapy.
Very happy with results.
Coolscalpting helped to shape my body. Now my designer clothes fits me perfectly.
Ultherapy maintains my facelift that i had done 5years ago. It lifted my eye brow and shaped
to perfection my jaw line. Also the staff made me feel most comfortable and DR. Shanthala followed up with my progress.
Thank you Dr. Shanthala!!!!

Very talented

I have been wanting to have some procedures done to help with lines, wrinkles & sagging skin but had no idea what the best options were for me. I felt confused and honestly a little scared to move forward. That is until I met Shanthala. She took the time to explain the benefits of each type of procedure as well as the long and short term results. After my initial consultation I left feeling informed and confident that I had come to the right place. I am not one to make decisions quickly and took my time to schedule my session for Ultherapy and Bellafill. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I highly recommend Shanthala she’s honest, caring and will very talented at what she does. You will not be disappointed.

The results were fantastic.

I want to review ShanthalaMD Med Spa from a different prospective.
Everyone knows someone that has had breast cancer and had chemotherapy. Many women also have hysterectomies to stop the flow of estrogen that can fuel the cancer. When this happens to someone young (and someone not so young) it can have a negative impact on their ability to have intimacy.
This was a problem for me. I was happy to be alive and accepted the changes that occurred…after all, I was cured of cancer. But, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse and difficulties with intimacy weighed heavily on me and my husband.
I want to shout, shout, shout out to the world…I have found a simple solution for me…
CO2RE is a laser procedure that restores vaginal tone and treats dryness. I had a series of three treatments at ShanthalaMD and I am thrilled with the results. Even after the first treatment I noticed improvement. Each treatment only lasted about 10-15 minutes and was essentially painless. I also saw a great improvement with urinary symptoms…leaking urine essentially stopped.
Dr. Shanthala did the procedure herself and was very respectful and professional. It was not an unpleasant or painful procedure and was really fast.
The results were fantastic. I (and my husband) am very happy.
I will be returning to ShanthalaMD to have the PRP shot treatment that is non surgical. It helps with sexual response.
So there it is, I couldn’t be happier. Thank You Dr. Shanthala

I am a breast cancer survivor with issues of vaginal dryness.

I also at times have some bladder leakage, ie sneezing, or coughing. The CO2RE Itima was quick, and not painful at all (like having a pap smear). I noticed improvement right after Intima, and I am still seeing signs of more improvement.

She instilled hope in me again

I went to Dr.Shantala after a terrible experience I had with fillers with another physician. I was one of those horror stories you hear about. I was terrified to try a treatment again but after I spoke with her, she made me feel that I was safe and that everything was going to be ok. After what I’d been through and after all that she’s done for me, I would recommend her all day!!! She’s not only a very passionate and talented doctor, but an incredible, kind, patient and giving human being. Thank you, Dr.Shantala

Extremely Knowledgeable, Patient-Oriented, Dedicated Caring Physician! Outstanding!

Dr. Shivananjappa is one of the most knowledgeable & patient-dedicated physicians whom I have ever met! She is an outstanding physician whom specializes in the practice of aesthetic rejuvenation, using the latest technologies and fillers in her practice. She has invested in the latest technologies in her practice. More important, she had taken the time to become thoroughly educated in the use of every technology that she offers in her practice. She is very hands-on and unlike many other doctors does not rely upon her aestheticians to use the technology without her supervision. She is the only physician, amongst four other doctors whom I had consultations, who dedicated the time to explain to me in detail, with the use of anatomical drawings of the structure of the face. She is also the only physician whom I have had a consultation with that explained which treatment and why that treatment would produce the best outcome for me based on my facial structure & skin texture and what I wanted to achieve. She thoroughly explains exactly which brand of filler should be used for the treatment of fine lines, the tear troughs, the nasal labial folds, and facial contouring & lip lines. Every question I asked, she answered thoroughly & thoughtfully. She is extremely honest & does sell or push the use of any filler or treatment unless she feels that it will be efficacious. For example, during our first visit, I wanted to have fillers injected in my upper cheeks for facial contouring. She told me that I would be wasting my money & that I should wait another four months. She spends as much time as each of her patients requires. She never rushes either her patients or herself. She really cares about her patients and her patients care about her. Her office is immaculate & extremely relaxing. I recommend Dr. Shivananjappa without hesitation. She is amongst the “best of the best” amongst physicians practicing aesthetic rejuvenation. She is a rare jewel of a physician!

Amazing experience and staff. . . so worth a visit

From the moment I entered Shanthala MD clinic I was impressed. The staff, the facility all were very clean and welcoming. I felt very safe as well. To enter the facility you have to be “buzzed” in. No one walking by can just pop in to the office without being screened visually. In this day and age I think this is a wonderful idea where for the most part women probably make up most of the client population. My initial eval lasted over an hour with the Doctor. She was thorough with her evaluation, exhausting all methods of treatment that was available to me. She offered me her expert opinion to help with my concerns. I felt so comfortable and confident I started some of my treatments that day. I have noted the change and feel more confident with my appearance. I’m 60 years old and so glad I finally chose to treat myself to this experience. I’m hooked and will continue.

A valuable procedure

I went to Dr. Shanthala for vaginal rejuvenation. Initially, I was quite hesitant. After consulting with Dr. Shanthala and having the first procedure, I realized women of a certain age and especially women who have had children, do not have to suffer. It is painless, quick and the benefits are immediate. I highly recommend Dr. Shanthala as she is a very knowledgeable professional.

44 yr old freshening things up

Just had my second appointment with Dr. Shanthala for the core intima, ( vaginal rejuvenation). As a 44 yr old , I had my child when I was young and now I’m starting to feel the effects of middle age creeping up on me. I do have some stress leakage, when you laugh to much, sneeze, get in your car…..plus I wanted to freshen things up down there. As a nurse I can honestly say that Dr Shanthala is one of the nicest, caring, and thoughtful doctors that I have seen. She takes the time to explain why and what she is doing . Always asking if I was ok. For the procedure itself I did feel some difference with the first one, more with sensitivity, I’m excited to see how the second turns out, I’m scheduled for my third . Looking forward to having more procedures with Dr Shanthala in future and will give updates

CO2RE Intima for Lichen Sclerosis with Dr.Shanthala In Peabody

I am a 60 year old woman who was diagnosed about 15 years ago with Lichen Sclerosus. I also suffered a significant infection and menopause. I was told by my gynecologist there was little that could be done, and treated for a time with cortisone. Over the years, my labia atrophied and i was always uncomfortable, itchy, and very very dry. Without the protection of the labia, all my “lady parts” constantly were rubbing on my clothing, which just made things worse. I am very active, and I run, do yoga and pilates and bootcamp – I have not been able to do any of these without significant lubrication before any activities, and bike riding has been out for the past few years. I cannot say more emphatically how even the first treatment has changed my life!!! With the CORE2 INTIMA and PRP, I have started to experience a normal amount of vaginal moisture, I am not itching, moving is comfortable. The PRP has really changed the structure of my labia, I finally feel like a normal woman, with labia and the kind of “padding” I should have. I had a second treatment in July and I could not be happier. I have my life back, I don’t spend time and energy thinking about how I’ll be able to lubricate, or peel of clothes that are stuck in some very dry and sensitive areas. That was my life, and COR2E INTIMA and PRP has changed it. Lichen Sclerosus is horrible. If you have it, you need to check this out. I did my research and thought this could help – I was desperate. I has helped beyond my greatest expectation! It should be covered by insurance – I have had may UTIs and vaginal infections because of the lack of moisture and the changes in structure of the physical structure. My quality of life and my condition is so much better now, I can’t recommend this highly enough – check it out!Dr. Shanthala is amazing! She is so knowledgeable, and also has such a calm reassuring manner that I felt understood and cared about.

Fantastic! Shanthala is a fantastic educator! She explains everything in great detail, and when performing her work, there is no feeling of her being rushed. She is dedicated to her immediate patient, and is an artist in her detail. She used restylane Defyne for my perioral rejuvenation and I love it! Not a single bruise.

Dr.shamthala was incredible! Hands down the most approachable and easy to talk to Dr I have ever met! I was so impressed with her level of empathy and honesty. She set reasonable expectations and gave me her honest advice. She definitely didn’t up sell her services. Can’t wait to see her again!

Amazing Results O-Shot & Co2RE Intima Dr. Shanthala!!!!!

After years of urinary incontinence, I finally decided to see if there was a non invasive core. Rushing to the bathroom at the end of a meeting, on the way home from work or after a flight always resulted in a me peeing myself just enough to be uncomfortable for the rest of the day. After researching online I saw something for the O-Shot and thought I would give it a whirl. The only thing that freaked me out is that it seems fairly new (last 5 -10 years). I also wanted to make sure the Dr. performed a few of these procedures regularly. I found 2 in my area and decided to go with Dr. Shanthala. Not only, was she skilled, informative and warm she also took the time which is uncommon in today’s world. After discussing my issues, we thought it would be best if I paired he O- Shot and CO2RE Intima laser together. She recommended 3 sessions. I am 2 sessions in and the results are amazing. No more accidents. Still have to run to the bathroom, but now I can hold it!!!!!!

The other results have also been beautiful. My vagina no longer looks decrepit. The skin looks more supple I have more moisture which has also led to better sex. By far one of the best decisions I have made in a long time!! Thanks to Dr. Shanthala

Vampire Facial & Instant Results with Dr. Shanthala

From the moment I consulted with Dr. Shanthala on the phone, I was at ease. She was a calming pres·ence, answering any and all questions before agreeing to meet. At no point did I feel like I was being targeted as a “sale”. Rather, Dr. Shanthala was thoughtful and provided me with a range of options for my perceived problem areas. Upon meeting her, any anxiety I had dissipated. Her office is so warm and welcoming and quickly, felt at home. I got instant results with my first microdermabrasion and even more lasting results with the PRP treatment (commonly referred to as a “vampire facial”). I am looking forward to seeing her regularly going forward, as my skin has never looked better. I feel grateful I reached out to Dr. Shanthala and recommend you all do the same.

My experience today with Dr. Shanthala was absolutely amazing.

From my consult to my treatment , I could not have asked for better service.   The doctor and her staff were honest, attentive and caring.  I strongly recommended ShanthalaMD Medspa without hesitation.   If you are looking for services of this type, look no further.  I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

The results were fantastic.

I want to review ShanthalaMD Med Spa from a different prospective.
Everyone knows someone that has had breast cancer and had chemotherapy. Many women also have hysterectomies to stop the flow of estrogen that can fuel the cancer. When this happens to someone young (and someone not so young) it can have a negative impact on their ability to have intimacy.
This was a problem for me. I was happy to be alive and accepted the changes that occurred…after all, I was cured of cancer. But, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse and difficulties with intimacy weighed heavily on me and my husband.
I want to shout, shout, shout out to the world…I have found a simple solution for me…
CO2RE is a laser procedure that restores vaginal tone and treats dryness. I had a series of three treatments at ShanthalaMD and I am thrilled with the results. Even after the first treatment I noticed improvement. Each treatment only lasted about 10-15 minutes and was essentially painless. I also saw a great improvement with urinary symptoms…leaking urine essentially stopped.
Dr. Shanthala did the procedure herself and was very respectful and professional. It was not an unpleasant or painful procedure and was really fast.
The results were fantastic. I (and my husband) am very happy.
I will be returning to ShanthalaMD to have the PRP shot treatment that is non surgical. It helps with sexual response.
So there it is, I couldn’t be happier. Thank You Dr. Shanthala

Dr.Shanthala, in her knowledgeable and trusting way convinced me to try the O Shot.

Imagine the trust that one must have to allow access to your vaginal area.
Shanthala, in her knowledgeable and trusting way convinced me to try the O Shot.
It has been fantastic! Having gone through menopause, all my desire had diminished, and there was pain with sex.
My sexual desire is back AND I feel like I am a 25 year old.
Highly highly recommend Shanthala MD!

Amazing experience, best of the best

dr. shantala is one of the best doctors I known. In addition to his years of experience, he loves his work, is a perfectionist and takes the time to explain the procedure and process. I come to her office because I wanted the vampire facelift, even I have 31 years and she recommended fillers and botox. I am very happy with the result and experience. so much so that I think back. not only for their excellent work, also because as soon as you walk into her office is a relaxing environment as a spa. thanks dr. shantala for your time, see you soon.

51 Year Old Woman Who Always Looked Tired

I had microneedling done with a vampire lift 3 times , it give my face a more youthful look and made the wrinkles less noticeable. I was very pleased with the results. It was quite a painful procedure but Dr Shanthala let me take breaks in between . Her office is meticulous and her staff are very helpful. The downtime wasn’t too bad , a little swelling for a few days but it was worth it all. I will have to do this procedure once a year to maintain the look. I would highly recommend Dr. Shanthala.

Vampire facelift

I had been noticing volume loss in my face for a few years. It was slowly getting worse. After examining me, and discussing different options, Dr. Shanthala decided a Vampire Facelift combined with fillers would be the best choice. And, what a great decision!
Dr. Shanthala used a Hyaluronic Acid based filler, Restylane Refine and PRP for microneedling. She used a microcanula to inject the PRP all over my face. I had it also injected under my eyes. That is an area that I had volume loss and it made it look like I had dark circles under my eyes. The PRP made that area look amazing. She took her time and literally sculpted my face.
The results are awesome! I had no bruising the next morning and I saw a softer version of myself when I looked in the mirror. Dr. Shanthala says the PRP will enhance the collagen production in my face which will help maintain this softer, youthful look. I am so, so happy!

Amazing spa with tradition decoration

Where to begin…….well, when you walk in the door your breath is taken away with the beauty and calmness of this spa. You feel relaxed and pampered before you have even spoken a word. The staff are a pleasure to deal with and exude warmth and make you feel comfortable. The treatment rooms are closer to a high end hotel than a treatment room.

I had the pleasure of meeting Shanthala a while back. She was in the beginning stages of opening her MedSpa. I was totally blown away with the number of years of research, courses and training she did prior to opening. Her medical knowledge and experience with invasive surgical beauty procedures led her down this path. She is a warm and caring person who is interested in making you feel better about yourself and how you look.

Have I had anything done? You bet! I went to the info session on ultherapy and signed up for a treatment right away. I had a full face and neck facelift. It is not an immediate change and therefore you have subtle changes over the next few weeks. The treatment was not uncomfortable. A few spots had a quick painful sensation, but overall it was less painful than shocked by static electricity you get from a rug. The next day I had a minor amount of tenderness or a slight itchy feeling that lasted a few days. The next day I returned and has fillers done on my cheeks, lip area, and around the eyes. I also had Botox between my brows. The change is subtle, but amazing. People won’t walk up to you and exclaim “Wow. You look so different”, but they will notice something is different.

I have been so pleased so far and next plan to do the cool sculpting. I have hated wearing dresses or skirts without pantyhose because my thighs rub together and cause discomfort. I also want to rid myself of the extra belly I have. So, Shanthala, prepare to see me soon.

I was hesitant on doing all this stuff for myself, but as my sister said, “You never treat yourself. So ahead and pamper yourself.”

Go for a consult and then make an educated decision to go for it. You won’t regret it.
