New doc on Marco Island – Skin Renewal Systems' open house introduces new medical director
by Lance Shearer from Marco Eagle
MARCO ISLAND – Wednesday at Skin Renewal Systems Medical & Hair Spa, the doctor was in. Several dozen women, and a few hardy men, came to the open house held at the spa on North Collier Boulevard to introduce Kent Hasen, M.D., the new medical director. Some of the ladies who showed up had previously made use of Dr. Hasen's services, at his practice in Naples, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Naples.
"I'm ecstatic. I think they made the perfect choice," said Annette Ingoglia. "He's low-key, conservative, gentle. He knows what he's talking about, and really makes you feel good."
"He's wonderful. You get those wrinkles, honey, we totally recommend him," agreed Caroline Henderson. Both said they had gone to Hasen for Botox treatments.
Ladies filled the spa's stylish offices, with granite tops, clear glass block and a soothing decorative fountain. They compared notes, sipped wine, and nibbled on filet, cocktail shrimp, Swedish meatballs, wraps, and chocolate-covered strawberries provided by Epicurean Events & Catering.
Skin Renewal Systems founder and co-owner Elizabeth Havens said she was delighted to find Hasen. The spa needed a physician on short notice when their previous medical director, Dr. Luciano Boemi, died Feb. 13.
"Dr. Hasen was absolutely our first choice," said Havens. "Adrienne and I have seen some of his work, and his facelifts were fabulous." Adrienne Willmeng, Havens' daughter, is her partner in Skin Renewal Systems.
Hasen will typically come to Marco each Friday, doing complimentary consultations and non-surgical procedures including Botox treatments and fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. For more extensive work such as cosmetic surgery, his office in Naples has a fully-accredited operating room suite.
"When we came down here, we saw how nice the facility is," said Hasen. "The staff is amazing, and clearly it's a very busy office. It's an extremely nice match – just a good fit." Hasen brought seven staff members with him to the open house, all female, and each more attractive than the next. One key staffer, Dellene Hasen, is Kent Hasen's wife as well as his practice manager.
Dr. Hasen, 43, has practiced in Naples since 2002. He earned his undergraduate degree at Indiana University, and his medical degree from Cornell University's medical school in New York City. He served his residency at Northwestern University in Chicago, plus a fellowship in Miami, and is board-certified in plastic surgery.
Hasen has earned honors including being named Alpha Omega Alpha at Cornell, and was named one of Southwest Florida's rising stars as one of Gulfshore Business magazine's "40 under 40." He believes patients should be well-informed, and weigh the risks and benefits of all procedures, he said.
"In most cases, the benefits greatly outweigh the minimal risks, but the consultation is a vital part of the process," said Hasen.
Skin Renewal Systems Medical & Hair Spa opened in 1999, and expanded into their current location in 2007. They offer a full gamut of medical and cosmetic skincare services, but the most popular, said Adrienne Willmeng, are the microderm abrasion and chemical peels.
"Those are anti-aging, and take away environmental damage," said Willmeng. Additional services include facials, massages, body wraps, permanent makeup, acupuncture, reflexology, biofeedback, and removal of skin tags, moles and scars.
Last year, Havens and Willmeng opened an additional facility, their Hair and Nail Spa, in the same complex, with seven hair stylists and three nail techs. Altogether, Skin Renewal Systems Medical & Hair Spa employs 23, not including Dr. Hasen and his own staff.
