VoyageLA interviews Janine Schaffer about her story and experience as a Medical Aesthetician
Meet Janine Schaffer, LE
Janine has been working in the cosmetic landscape for over four years. Fueled by a dedication to helping others look and feel their best, she finds success and happiness in patients walking away feeling better than they did when they walked into Aesthetic MdR.
In her spare time, Janine loves spending time with her 7-month-old son, Mason, her husband Mike, and watching each franchise of the Real Housewives on Bravo.
A Passion for Skin Care
Janine is passionate about everything skin care. She understands how important it can be to achieve beautiful, glowing skin, and how frustrating it is when flaws, inflammation and other skin concerns take away from your appearance, cause makeup to be difficult, and even make you appear older or tired.
Janine loves to see clients discover their renewed, clear, healthy skin again. Watching clients say goodbye to their skin troubles and achieve a beautiful, radiant glow is so rewarding for Janine.
Areas of Expertise
Coolsculpting is a non-invasive, highly effective treatment for body contouring that targets and reduces stubborn areas of fat. Janine will use applicators to the areas you would like to treat to sculpt and contour the figure. Her goal is to help you achieve your aesthetic ideal in a comfortable, relaxed environment.
Chemical peels range from light to deep, and their application is more than a science. It takes the hand of an artist to properly achieve the results clients are looking for. Smoothing facial lines and wrinkles, reducing scarring and age spots, and evening the skin tone and texture, a chemical peel can be applied to the face, hands, neck and decolletage, exposing the topmost layer of skin and revealing a fresh, vibrant appearance.
Dermaplaning beautifully exfoliates the skin and removes peach fuzz with a special surgical-grade blade held at an angle to the face and carefully moved across it. With her steady hand and meticulous attention to detail, Janine puts clients at ease as she smooths away dead cells and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. She follows the exfoliation with serums and lotions that sink deeper into the skin after the dermaplaning treatment, and leaves the skin healthier, more radiant and glowing.
If the sound of repetitive needle pokes to the skin doesn’t sound all too appealing, that’s understandable. But two things that makes Microneedling a popular go-to for our patients in need of some skin revitalization: One is the topical numbing cream applied so experience no pain but all the pleasure of having a glowing face clear of most textural problems, sun damage and stretch marks. The second is Rachael’s calm demeanor and careful work that leaves patients feeling relaxed and reassured.
PRP (platelet rich plasma) comes from your own blood and has outstanding healing and regenerative qualities. PRP is applied into the skin with microneedling, helping to treat facial volume loss, wrinkles and lines, dull skin, and many other common cosmetic concerns. A small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm, then run it through a centrifuge to isolate the PRP before it is applied into the skin with the microneedling device.
Microdermabrasion is an exceptional procedure to achieve deep exfoliation. Janine will consult with you about your cosmetic concerns and goals, and examine your skin. She will help you choose the best microdermabrasion technique that is most suited to your needs, whether it’s diamond-tipped, crystal, or hydradermabrasion. You’ll see a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines, and a fresh, bright, more youthful appearance to your skin.
This exciting facial rejuvenation procedure utilizes microneedling to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, while simultaneously delivering nutrients into the skin that are curated especially for you to meet the needs of your skin. AquaGold has something for every patient, whether the goal is rejuvenation for wrinkles and fine lines, hydration for dry skin, or revitalization for dull, tired skin.
Indulge in a bespoke facial by Janine, who will customize your treatment and products uniquely for you. After a thoughtful consultation to understand your skin concerns and an examination of your skin, Janine will design the perfect facial to suit your needs, whether it’s to deeply hydrate, refresh and renew, brighten and tone, or a combination treatment.
Our medical-grade skin care products provide outstanding results for any type of skin, whether combination, dry, oily or sensitive. Based on your unique skin concerns, Janine will help advise which products are right for you and will produce the best results. Your hand-picked products are chosen by a skin care specialist, Janine, who knows your skin better than anyone.
DiamondGlow™ is a non-invasive, highly advanced skin-resurfacing technique that uses a unique, diamond-tipped device to exfoliate the topmost layer of skin, revealing fresh, renewed skin beneath. The skin is then deeply cleansed, and dirt and debris are extracted from the pores. Your fresh, revitalized skin is then infused with nourishing SkinMedica serums.
Permanent MakeUp is typically applied to the eyebrows and eyelashes, but it can be applied in other areas as well. This time-saving, beautifying treatment utilizes organic pigment, which is deeply applied to the skin precisely and carefully to achieve an extremely long-lasting look. Janine begins with a topical numbing cream before beginning to ensure the process is virtually painless.
Janine richly hydrates and refreshes your skin with the outstanding HydraFacial expert. This 3-step, 30-minute light but powerful facial soothes, fines and calms the skin, helping to firm and brighten the complexion. Clients who have skin laxity or wrinkles, and notice a dead appearance to the skin may find the HydraFacial with Janine to be a perfect treatment for them.
