Lisa Street, Nurse Practitioner and owner of Glo Medical Aesthetics in Midtown, gives us her tips on how she stays gorgeous year-round, as well as insider knowledge on how to choose the best treatments to look and feel your best.

How do you stay fit?
Pilates, Dance & Yoga! These 3 activities really support the mind body connection while strengthening & toning. My favorite places are Core Collective on Broad and Mind Body Haus in Midtown. I follow a mostly plant based diet as well as staying hydrated! I also take supplements to strengthen my immune system and replenish amino acids and trace minerals to support overall cell functioning.

What is retinol and do I need it?
Retinol is a form of vitamin A, which increases cell turnover and stimulates collagen synthesis. Prescription strength (or medical grade) retinol is much stronger than the ones found in drugstores or the ones you buy from your neighbor. It’s a must for skin over 40 because cell turnover rate slows with age.

What are the different types of dermal fillers?
Juvederm, Restylane, RHA Fillers, and Versa are all hyaluronic acid fillers. These are the closest to actual human hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in the body. They are the most widely used fillers because they can be dissolved immediately if vascular issues arise or bad technique was used resulting in undesirable results. Radiesse is Calcium Hydroxyapatite Filler which is a mineral based filler that works by stimulating fibroblasts to increase collagen in tissue. This filler is ideal for deep placement and hyperdiluted to be used in body treatments for skin tone and volume. ie BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift)! Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid filler (PLLA) illicits an inflammatory response resulting in collagen deposition and is indicated in facial lipoatrophy (fat loss in face).

How do I get rid of cellulite?
Emtone is a medical device that treats cellulite by delivering both thermal and mechanical energy to the affected areas. Treatment time varies per area with little to no discomfort or downtime. Most patients say it feels like a massage!

What is your favorite medical aesthetic treatment?
Our PRP AKA “Vampire Facial” combines the benefits of microneedling while using growth factors from your own blood to restore the collagen and elastin we lose as we age. This treatment will improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, sun damage, and even dark circles under the eyes.
