At G. Skin Therapy, licensed clinical aesthetician and professional television makeup artist Glenda Engelbach uses advanced technology and clinical-grade products to beautify skin. After receiving a degree from the Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics, Engelbach went on to complete post-graduate certification at the renowned International Dermal Institute. She is also certified in a number of innovative facial techniques, such as dermaplaning, and in the use of therapeutic and organic lines that include PCA Skin and Dr. Hauschka Skin Care. This combination of expertise in high-quality methods and products helped her earn recognition on Applaud Women magazine's 2011 Readers' Choice awards in the Best Facial category.
Engelbach employs the Trios intense-pulsed-light system to rejuvenate skin, remove hair, and clear complexions of acne. She also addresses skin concerns such as rosacea, age spots, and wrinkles, as well as sun damage caused by literally living under a magnifying glass.

Dr. Martin E. Cutler’s more than 30 year career is defined by his mastery of new technology. In the ‘70s, he was one of the first area doctors to offer no-stitch cataract lens replacement. Today, he helps patients reduce their dependence on glasses with LASIK and makes reading glasses obsolete with conductive keratoplasty, the first FDA-approved procedure that sharpens one’s up-close vision and makes Moby Dick easier to understand.
Alongside Dr. Cutler’s opthalmology center stands a medical spa staffed by licensed aestheticians. With the aid of the Palomar StarLux system, they harness the power of intense pulse light to oust unwanted fuzz from anywhere on the body. They also pair facials with botanical Nelly de Vuyst products and deep-clean pores with PCA chemical peels, and offer free skin analyses to help patients find the best course of treatment or the best way to flaunt a Jay Leno–shaped birthmark.
