From Dr. Hernried:
I am thrilled to be the medical director and founder of The Finishing Touch Medspa.
I have fallen in love with medical aesthetics. I will admit that I am a “frustrated dermatologist”. During my medical training, I enjoyed the field of dermatology. However, I wanted to be a primary care physician. I enjoyed medical dermatology while in practice.
At the time, the field of aesthetic medicine was nascent. I also learned that the skin could not be altered…that the aging process of the skin was inevitable. This is far from the truth. I have immersed myself in the specialty of aesthetic medicine and have found an incredible amount of research and clinical evidence that the aging of skin is not inevitable. In fact, through our treatments, the aging process can not only be stopped, but reversed.
My focus over the last 20 years has been on the improvement of “inner health” by treating obesity and its associated complications, and I have enjoyed helping thousands of patients rediscover their future. After losing weight, many patients asked me about what to do with skin changes after weight loss. I referred out, but most did not find suitable treatments.
I am now proud to offer first class aesthetic treatments for patients of all sizes, ages and shapes. I have combed the US to find the best treatments and practices and look forward to sharing them with my patients. I have become certified in neuromodulators and fillers, lasers from Sciton, and Coolsculpting from Allergan. I have received extra training from The National Laser Institute.
I always believe the best care is performed in a team-oriented collaborative environment. I am proud to work with experienced and personable medical and aesthetic staff to provide the best care possible.
