HULA CASTELLON

HULA CASTELLON

NP-C

Originally from Belarus, Hula came to this country at the age of 21 with $500 in her pocket and a head full of big dreams. Her dreams lead her to the University of Michigan where she graduated in the top 10% of her class with a BSN degree. In 2016 she graduated from Florida International University with a Master of Science as an NP. After graduating Hula relocated to Los Angeles, where she discovered her passion lies in aesthetic medicine and cosmetic dermatology.⁣

In the era of social media and stereotypical guidelines of how someone should look, Hula's goal is to empower her patients and destroy insecurities. Having an extensive nursing background she looks at the patient as a whole, starting with their mind to better understand how and why a patient perceives themselves a certain way, and how the physical change would benefit them.

"I always have a patient's best interest in mind, and I strongly believe that having a trusted relationship between a patient and a provider secures best outcomes."

Hula's favorite treatment to perform is full face rejuvenation incorporating various treatment modalities such as dermal fillers, neurotoxins and PDO threads. Having a trained aesthetic eye she strongly believes in a synergistic approach instead of treating one isolated area.

Meet JENNIFER GERACE, your personal skin-care muse and resource for exceptional skin! Drawing upon her decades of experience in the aesthetic industry, Jennifer employs a unique multi-modality approach to her facial treatments to provide lasting results for her growing client roster. With a focus on promoting skin health through her Orthomolecular Facial Treatment regimens and home-care recommendations.

Whether your skin has suffered the effects of being a former sun worshiper, cancer survivor, sugar, drug or alcohol addict, Jennifer's Orthomolecular Facial Treatments are customized to disrupt the downward spiral of glycation by recalibrating the skin to it's healthiest functioning state.

Jennifer is also well known for developing protocols that prepare the client's skin for invasive procedures such as lasers, injectables and surgery, which in turn has resulted in close relationships with some of the most well-respected dermatologists, plastic surgeons and nurse injectors in the industry. Often, these pre-procedure measures are overlooked, which can lead to impaired healing, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), damaged and even scarred skin, so efforts to provide the treatment areas with the proper nutrients prior to these more advanced procedures will promote faster healing and minimal downtime.

Jennifer trained at the Dermal Institute in Reston, Virginia and has been a licensed aesthetician since 1992. She later went on to receive advanced training at the world- renowned Vonn Lee International Institute. She began her career as a medical make- up artist for CNN's Washington DC bureau. With the advent of high-definition television during the mid 1990s, Jennifer's clients increasingly began to request help with improving their skin's appearance on camera. This led to her eventual transition into clinical based aesthetics. As a Master Clinical Esthetician and former manufacturers' consultant, she has since collaborated with highly-distinguished physician luminaries including cosmetic dermatologists, Dr. Jason Emer & Dr. David Amron along with Plastic Surgeon, Dr. John Diaz & Dr. Gary Motykie. Jennifer recently spent a year closely working along side Dermatologist, Dr. Paul Yamauchi & Dr. Tsippora Shainhouse building the Sutain Skin Care line and creating Aesthetic protocols for patients suffering medical conditions like psoriasis, acne Roseacea and eczema. Jennifer's groundbreaking ancillary protocols that enhance invasive thermal inducing procedures such as lasers, RF & ultrasound. She has personally trained & certified more than 1,000 estheticians on the HydraFacialTM Hydra-Dermabrasion technology and is launching a ground breaking device that infuses Hydrogen into the skin is expected to launch in Summer of 2020.

Jennifer is currently partnered with Dr. Perry Liu's, Avant Plastic Surgery Center in Beverly Hills where she is developing ancillary wound healing protocols for surgical patients as well as servicing private clients in the Los Angeles area.
