Why did you start ReNu Med Lounge?
I have more than 14 years of experience in the field of anesthesiology in plastic surgery and aesthetics. After surgery, many of my patients asked me to administer IV vitamin therapy to help in their recovery process. This experience fueled my passion for helping others feel and look their absolute best.
We opened ReNu Med Lounge in October 2020, and it has been incredibly fulfilling to help so many patients with their concerns. I have the privilege to be at the med lounge every day performing procedures and interacting with our patients firsthand.
What are the most important traits to succeed in your industry?
Giving our patients honest guidance is something we really pride ourselves on. When it comes to aesthetic and beauty treatments, it’s important to have a practitioner whom you trust and who will only facilitate treatments that will really benefit you. Also, having the right team of seasoned injectors and proceduralists has helped us build a community of patients who rely on our expertise. Our patients have a personalized experience at ReNu, where we all work cohesively to help patients reach their aesthetic and wellness goals.
