Meet the Team!
Dr. Carmen Matei
Dr. Matei has been a physician for 30 years specializing in Internal Medicine and Medical Oncology.
While caring for her patients, she noticed the significant emotional and physical impact they were experiencing as a result of their illnesses, and she wanted to help alleviate this impact. She has always had a love for nature, beauty and the arts and so, along with her medical practice, she decided to pursue a 2nd career in medical aesthetics. She achieved this goal in 2009 when she received her certification in medical aesthetic procedures (Neurotoxins, Dermal Fillers, Micro-needling and Laser Technology), and opened a medical spa. Dr. Matei continues to bring other services to the medical spa, and both she and her staff continue their training and certifications with some of the newest modalities for treatment available in the medical aesthetics world.
Dr. Matei’s commitment centers on providing her clients with the utmost care and compassion, using the experience and dedication of a 30-year medical career. Her background in medical oncology is key to assisting her current clients with the best skincare protocols and products possible.
After moving to the United States from Romania, Dr. Matei completed her medical residency and fellowship at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. She is also Board certified in Internal Medicine and Medical Oncology.
