Conveniently located near Manchester Rd. and I-270 in west St. Louis County, Aesthetic Medispa of West County thrives courtesy of the joint efforts of Jackie Carr, R.N., M.S.N., A.N.P.-B.C., L.E. (she did a lot of work for all of those titles) and John Holds, MD, FACS. Ms. Carr and Dr. Holds met in 2001 when she became a cosmetic patient herself. Seeing the need for a full time nurse aesthetician to provide care within the practice, Ms. Carr joined Dr. Holds and established Aesthetic Medispa of West County.
The spa services at Aesthetic Medispa of West County can be divided up into skin consultation, skin care, fillers, neuromodulators (Botox), chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing and skin care products.
“Skin Care” includes masques, massage , and microdermabrasion techniques as appropriate to your needs. Dermal fillers are incredible products that replace tissue volume that is lost with age and provide impressive long-lasting results. Botox and Xeomin Cosmetic are injectable medications that selectively weaken the nerve impulses triggering wrinkle-causing muscle contractions. Chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing are techniques that even irregular skin pigmentation, lessen the appearance of sun damage, and can smooth and tighten aged skin. Finally, skin care products are a basis for most other treatments. These products may not only make the skin look more youthful, but can even biologically change the skin on a microscopic basis into a younger version of itself!
Skin consultation is the starting point for every patient. Jackie Carr, R.N., M.S.N., A.N.P.-B.C., L.E., customarily provides consultation for the medispa patients on a courtesy basis and encourages a relaxed interchange of information.
“My goal is to foster a close, professional relationship with my patients in which I provide skilled, safe and appropriate cosmetic care to encourage them to live life to the fullest” says Ms. Carr. If looks are 25% genetics and 75% lifestyle we want to do the utmost to maintain positive feeling about ourselves and remain physically active and engaged with the world. We look forward to working with you in these goals.
