Meet The Aestheticians

As an inclusive dermatology practice serving Los Gatos and greater San Jose, we offer full-service treatments for all your skin care needs. Cosmetic procedures often complement medical treatments, such as pairing acne treatments with aesthetic procedures to minimize and reduce scarring. There are limitations of insurance coverage with aesthetic procedures, but we’ll help you with a payment plan that works for you. Let’s meet the team.

Hannah | RefinedMD, Los Gatos and San Jose, California

Hannah Thieu-Merrel, Aesthetician

Hannah has been an aesthetician since 2005, specializing in dermatology since 2008. In other words, she’s seen many skin care trends come and go, but has always specialized in acne treatment and facial rejuvenation utilizing the latest proven products and technology. Her knowledge of a rich variety of skin care lines makes her a ringer should there ever be a trivia night for dermatology (if you find one, let her know), and Hannah individualizes every patient’s regimen for the best results.

She calls her career “a blessing and a privilege” because she knows how important healthy skin is for holistic health. By helping people achieve clear and healthy skin, she’s helping to boost self-esteem and self-worth. Who wouldn’t love that as part of their job description?

Nagmeh | RefinedMD, Los Gatos and San Jose, California

Nagmeh Hamidian, Director of Aaesthetics

Nagmeh is the official point-woman with many appointments. At your first cosmetic consultation, she will introduce you to the practice, listen to your specific concerns, and give you some foundational insight about ways we can help you—and your skin. Nagmeh will help you formulate questions that you may want to ask our clinical staff, and give you concierge-level guidance throughout your initial consultation. She’ll become an important point of contact on your journey towards better skin.

Nagmeh comes from the corporate world of marketing, and is originally from Sweden. She earned her Aesthetics License in California when she moved to the United States. Nagmeh has traveled the world and is an expert in all types of skin and concerns. Her passion is educating patients, and she specializes in customized consultations. With an inquisitive mind, insatiable thirst for knowledge, and deep desire to help her clients achieve their skin care goals, you’ll quickly forgive her for having that maddeningly perfect Swedish complexion (don’t worry, she’ll help you get there, too!).

She speaks fluent English, Swedish, Farsi, and some French, helping patients from around the globe feel right at home. “I’m very passionate about learning and self-development,” Nagmeh says. “During my consultations, I can share that knowledge and research with our patients as well, and that is so rewarding to me.” Nagmeh enjoys fitness, being active, and is a strong believer that great skin also comes from within.
