I recently visited the Aurora DeJuliis M.D., European Medical Spa in Bloomfield, NJ because I was interested in learning what set it apart from other "health" spas. As I entered that front office, I found a comfortable relaxing setting – not unlike many doctors' offices I've been to over the years. But then I met Dr. Aurora DeJuliis with her gentle accent. The doctor was born and raised in Rome, Italy and graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Rome in Medicine and Surgery. She's been at the leading edge of her field for over 20 years and is a representative of the World International Society of Anti-Aging Medicine.
When asked about her medical training, Dr. DeJuliis said she was always interested in anti-aging. Her specialized training continued in Paris and Rome where she studied skin rejuvenation possibilities before it was available here in America. She learned that one's skin reflects their health and well-being. It is more than just "looking good" - in order to look good one has to be at a level of health that supports those looks. As a young woman she was drawn to more in-depth learning about anti-aging, its causes and skin care and realized how reflective the skin is of one's health. As a result, what she is offering at the European Medical Spa has a different slant than any other "spa" I have seen.
According to Dr. DeJuliis, very few health spas have a full-time doctor on staff and many are willing to "give an injection" and move on. They often don't have the artistic or professional capabilities to work with the patient to meet their expectations. Additionally, she acknowledges that as a woman in the same age category as many of her patients, she empathizes and clearly understands their goals.
Many men and women often come into her offices looking for a "quick-fix" before a bar mitzvah or wedding because they want to look younger and more energetic. During her initial consultations, she does an in-depth evaluation of the skin, evaluating its general health, color, thickness, oiliness, dryness and level of fragility. As a physician, she also examines the condition of the underlying muscles as well, looking for damage, wrinkles, scars, broken capillaries, rosacea, acnes, birthmarks or discoloration and discusses the individual issues with the patient to gain a good understanding of his/her feelings about their situation. Then, and only then, will she explore personalized recommendations for treatment options, rejuvenation and repair alternatives.
However, the doctor has more than skin care alternatives available for her patients. Only 5-10 years ago if we wanted to look younger there were few options beyond plastic surgery. But at the European Medical Spa one can find significant non-invasive options available.
Her in-depth knowledge of nutrition and internal medicine allow her to explore opportunities that non-medical spas do not have available to them. She takes time with each patient to discuss these options and help them explore how much time and money they want to invest. She covers aspects of weight management, and emphasizes how one's lifestyle translates to one's looks, listing smoking, stress and environmental toxins and the need for regular rest, meditation and exercise.
It's amazing how some small adjustments can make a huge difference in a man or woman's looks and easily erase years from his/her appearance. In addition to skin care, Dr. DeJuliis is certified to use Mesothereapy for cellulite reduction, MesoScalp for hair re-growth, LipoDissolve to melt unwanted fat to mold one's body for spot fat reduction, as well as a number of newer and safer laser treatments for varicose & spider veins, advanced wrinkle reduction, hair removal and skin resurfacing. The European Medical Spa is a center for one's appearance and well-being.
This delightful yet very professional woman clearly makes her ability to help people her number one priority. Dr. DeJuliis is a highly respected and active member of the following professional organizations:
• American Academy of Ageless Medicine
• American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine
• American Aesthetic Society
• American College of Nutrition
