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 esthetic procedures to minimize and reduce scarring. There are limitations of insurance coverage with esthetic procedures, but we’ll help you with a payment plan that works for you. Let’s meet the team.
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 Esthetics 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.
Ah, estheticians. By design (and talent), they are experts in the nature and appreciation of art—and our skin is without a doubt their best canvas. Refined Dermatology proudly boasts some of the most highly skilled estheticians (ahem, artists) in the field, offering the most effective esthetic treatments such as chemical peels, extractions, Dermalinfusion, and facials. Contact the Refined Dermatology office today to schedule your appointment with one of our incredible estheticians: Hannah and Ania.
Hannah has been an esthetician 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?
Ania completed the esthetics program at San Jose College in 2014. It was an obvious calling after a lifetime of passion for skin care, health, and beauty. Throughout her career, Ania has prioritized helping patients achieve their cosmetic goals with natural, stunning results. She’s an expert at facial treatments, body sculpting, and utilizing the right skin care products for every patient.
Thanks to the technologies and products available at Refined Dermatology, the sky’s the limit for Ania and her patients. She has the power to recommend a wide range of regimen options to patients, coupled with her compassion and stellar medical-spa-chairside manner (it’s a mouthful, but you’ll appreciate that disposition when you’re getting pampered and beautified).
With Ania’s talents and skills, patients enjoy amazing results and leave each appointment with a renewed sense of confidence. It turns out, you really can bottle happiness (although sometimes it comes in a bottle, sometimes a laser, or some other approach Ania will introduce you to).
