I actually came to Elite MD because, I have a ethnic skin and acne scars. I always felt insecure about my skin because of my breakouts when i was younger. Since i started coming here i have noticed a difference in my skin and texture. I feel so comfortable wearing my hair up now and wear little to no make up. Skin is so much smoother and softer. I had 4 Ematrix lazer treatments, facials and use the day & nighttime products. I love the products so much. The staff here are always so kind and welcoming. The facility is also very clean. Coming here was the best decision ever. Thank you for all you do.

Amazing Results with an Excellent Staff! - I’m a 42 year old Asian male that really struggled with unhealthy habits during the pandemic. I was looking for a reset and needed to get back in shape and lose around 10-15 pounds. I had a previous consultation for laser lipo at another place prior to coming to Elite MD, and I’m so glad I decided to come here instead! From the initial consult to the post op treatments, everyone has been amazing. The deciding factor for me was after meeting Dr. Bansal for the first time, he really put me at ease and explained things about the procedure that I didn’t even think of, for example, he specializes in ethnic skin and that was not even something I considered. I was presented with multiple options for treatment and did not feel pressured to pick one over the other, it was left entirely up to me and what I wanted to achieve, which I really appreciated. Both procedures were thoroughly explained, and I ended up choosing vaser lipo for my upper and lower abs, and flanks. I am 7 weeks post op, and have lost 13 pounds as of today, no more love handles and my stomach has never been flatter. This result couldn’t have been achieved without Elite MD, the guidance they provided was top notch, they were thorough, knowledgeable, and care about my results as much I do. This is my first cosmetic procedure, and if I do decide on another one down the road, Elite MD would definitely be my first and last stop.

Skincare Trial Day 1 - Day 1 of Dr Sonia’s new product line to help treat melasma on ethnic skin types. I have struggled with this for about 15 years, have treated with ok results but am excited to take it to the next level.

Dr. Sonia takes an approach to skin care that is not just an administration of a treatment, but rather an educational experience that provides details in understanding the steps necessary on a journey to clearer skin. I have come to her to correct slight difficulties I have in dealing with my sometimes, challenging ethnic skin. I have been on her topical regiment for a little over a month now, and the results are very noticeable. My breakouts have been extinguished, my hyper-pigmentation reduced, and my ingrown hairs (beard) are a far less often sight. I look forward to the next steps in finishing the journey to achieving my dream skin! The professionalism as well etiquette of Dr. Sonia and her team have made my experience a truly enjoyable journey thus far.
