Dr. Elizabeth Wanner combines her health-care background with an insatiable interest in medical aesthetic advancements. Wearing her medical doctorate from University of Texas as a paper hat, Dr. Wanner continues to fill her reservoir of knowledge by attending courses and seminars sponsored by Cynosure, a laser manufacturer, and Dr. Stephen Mulholland, a renowned cosmetic plastic surgeon. Armed with this expertise, she and her team wield an arsenal of FDA-approved lasers to zap unsightly veins, body hair, and age spots, and employ medical-grade injectable fillers to plump up slack skin.
