Jenny Maschino-Guthrie, APRN-CNP, offers niche-market skin care and aesthetics in a boutique environment at Glow Medical Aesthetics, 8301 E. 81st St., Ste. H in Tulsa.
Jenny Maschino-Guthrie has a passion for helping women look and feel their best. That passion led her to develop the skills necessary to offer aesthetics and quality skin care. Eventually, that passion transformed into her current business, Glow Medical Aesthetics.
What sets Glow Medical Aesthetics apart from similar businesses? With 16 years experience as a nurse and 11 years as an advanced practice nurse, Jenny brings a wealth of medical experience to the field of aesthetics. “I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit,” says Jenny, “as well as an interest in skin care and cosmetics.”
When you combine her medical experience and her passion, Jenny is able to offer more than the average skin care business. “I am licensed to do more than someone who can only do facials,” she adds.
Glow Medical Aesthetics’ unique setting is also something that sets the business apart. “My focus is offering medical quality skin care in a boutique setting,” says Jenny. When clients walk through the doors at 8301 E. 81st St., Ste. H, they will find anything but a medical “feel” to this upscale aesthetic practice. Instead, they will encounter a warm, welcoming environment. “We offer the best of both worlds in a non-intimidating setting.”
The unique boutique experience also translates into another aspect that sets Glow Medical Aesthetics apart from the competitors. “I tailor each treatment to meet my clients’ needs, based on lifestyle, cosmetic goals and their facial anatomy,” she says. “Based on these three things, I choose the products and treatments to meet those goals.”
Jenny further emphasizes that her goal is for a client to “look as natural as possible” when she is finished with treatments. “We offer a variety of procedures and products to assist women where gravity has taken its toll on their faces,” she adds. “I want to give them a more youthful, natural appearance.”
After an assessment, Jenny helps her clients make the right procedure choice for their skin, including Botox or Xeomen, which are neuromodulators to relax the contraction of muscles by blocking nerve impulses, leaving expression lines relaxed and giving the face an overall softer appearance. Other options at Glow Medical Aesthetics include cosmetic fillers, chemical peels, acne management, and skin and body care products, including CosMedix, Results RX and Mybody shower gels and lotions with probiotics. “They are good for your skin,” she says.
“My skill set using Botox and fillers leave the client looking natural,” says Jenny. “I’ve seen some women whose treatments have brought less than desirable results. You can tell they’ve undergone a procedure when finished. I strive for that natural, youthful look.”
Jenny says she loves treating a client and seeing the results. “I get as excited as they do, maybe more. It does my heart good to see them have positive results. I truly like meeting their expectations and not just pushing more products at them, unless they really have a need for them.”
On June 19 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., a “Cosmos and CosMedix” open house will be held at Glow Medical Aesthetics. There will be a live filler demonstration, and all skin care products will be 20 percent off. Door prizes will be given away, including Xeomen.
