THE PARK MEDSPA
The Park Med Spa came to be as an outgrowth of Dr. Arthur Miller’s experience over many years working with skin care, and lasers in conjunction with his busy Family Practice. He has prided himself with giving personalized care in a professional manner always with the patient in mind to achieve the best possible results.
To establish the Med Spa, Dr. Miller partnered with Marina Shepelevsky, an esthetician with 30 years of experience who has developed a phenomenal international reputation in NY for treating problem skin, in particular she is an expert in treating acne and aging skin. Together, The Park Med Spa, in Highland Park, NJ, was established to create a very unique experience. The goal is to give to the community the benefits of quality skin care by estheticians and well trained medical professionals in a discreet, private setting.
The Spa has a state of the art laser which can address many skin problems including hair removal, skin tightening, skin rejuvenation, photo damage, brown spots, melasma, spider veins, rosecea, telangiectasia, psoriasis, scar revision and in particular acne. Acne treatments is our specialty and we have been very successful at treating it.
