ON THE
level
 

I was born in Shanghai. And came to the US when I was five. I grew up in Palo Alto with my mom, dad and 3 older brothers. I graduated from Stanford University, then Washington University Medical School. Today, I live in St. Louis with my husband, Richard Lehman – an orthopedic surgeon and a damn good one if I must say so myself - and my children Cameron, Alex and Sydney. My patients come from all over the country. New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, London and San Paolo.

As a board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon, I’ve spent over 27 years in practice, countless hours in the operating room, and lifted thousands of faces not just physically – but emotionally.

I am always humbled by the body’s amazing ability to heal after surgery. I sought products that would support the procedures my patients had just undergone. Needless to say, I was frustrated by the souped-up serums and doctored up creams that all-too often delivered disappointing results.

PRIVATE PRACTICE

BY Dr. Michele Koo

 

Of course, creating breakthrough medical-quality formulas, using potent ingredients and delivering great outcomes are critical. But equally as important and meaningful is creating a positive, uplifting experience. For me, it’s all about how you make people feel. It’s that simple and that hard.

High science doesn’t need to be sterile!

I believe that first and foremost the best – and most successful - outcomes happen when your patient - or in this case client - feels like you’re on their side. And that’s where I begin.

I practice the lost art of “personal medicine.” Today doctors have only a few minutes to spend with each patient, and it’s easier to just to write a prescription for something that will instantly relieve your symptoms. Personal medicine treats people and patients like individuals who have their own special needs.

l want to know about you

I’m not going to tout some miracle cure. The latest and greatest ingredient. Or recommend some off-the-shelf, one-and-done approach. I’m not here to change the way you look. I am here to help truly heal your skin and enhance the beauty that you already have. Skin health first, the beauty will follow.

That’s why every recommendation I make is based on a consultation. For me it is – as it has always been - about creating real beauty that suits your personality, your lifestyle, your individual goals and expectations along with your persona. I want to understand your wants and needs. And connect the dots.

And because every woman starts from her own baseline, I customize your program and provide step-wise concentrations and ingredient differentiation for a stepladder to success. This is the essence of my “Skin Kind” approach – which means you get the right products in the right concentration at the right time in the right sequence. So you never have to worry about irritation or an adverse reaction.

I don’t dummy-down my recos. And I’ll always explain the how’s and why’s of my formulas. Curious or confused about something? Just ask.

Net-net: my personal prescription for achieving great skin is simple and personal. Heal with your heart. In other words: CARE. Connect. Act. Respect. Empower.

Can't wait to be there for you and help guide you through your skin care journey!

With gratitude,

Dr. Koo
