Feel good in your skin with Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health’s Cosmetic Services

Medical Aesthetician Christy Gladfelter discusses the benefits of nonsurgical procedures for better skin.

With the warmth of summer on the horizon and family vacations booked, many people start to take a closer look at their skin. Whether you are noticing unwanted lines, discolorations and unevenness, or sun damage from summers past, the process of achieving healthier skin may seem daunting and too time consuming.

That’s where Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health comes in.

Now located at the new Suburban Pavilion outpatient facility at their Harrisburg Pike campus, LG Health’s Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery practice offers a variety of dedicated Cosmetic Services that are minimally invasive—helping you to look your best with little downtime so you can enjoy the sunny days ahead.

Medical Aesthetician Christy Gladfelter heads their Skin Care Team and specializes in the latest cosmetic and rejuvenating treatments and procedures so you can safely enhance your appearance and achieve natural-looking results.

Christy explains that non-invasive typically means nonsurgical, and patients only have a few days of recovery from these treatments. Oftentimes, this includes some residual dryness, redness, and flaking, so it is ideal for summertime, where you can still help rejuvenate skin, but also enjoy the summer months while using daily SPF, of course!

An aesthetician for the past 16 years, Christy’s journey into the cosmetic healthcare field began with a passion for makeup and helping people feel their best.

“My experience as a beauty consultant influenced me to learn more about skincare and the overall health of the skin,” shares Christy. “You can apply all the makeup in the world, but if you don’t start with the basics of healthy skin, makeup won’t make a difference.”

Joining the LG Health team in 2022, Christy brought a wealth of knowledge from the aesthetics industry, and she has enjoyed introducing the latest technology in skincare into her lineup of offerings to walk alongside her patients on their skincare journey—including the only innovative HALO® laser in the area which combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to offer remarkable results with minimal downtime, restoring a healthy glow and youthfulness to your skin.

“Working at a medical spa opened my eyes to cosmetic dermatology, plastic surgery, and more results-oriented versus feel-good treatments,” recalls Christy. “This week, a patient came in to the LG Health office for a follow-up, and she was amazed when I showed her before and after photos. She is so appreciative, and that feels great to provide for her.”

Christy has a strong commitment to creating rapport with her patients and knows building trust allows her to effectively guide them to great results.

Skincare services at LG Health can be scheduled anytime starting with a complementary consultation where Christy gets to know you, your skin, and your goals. She may recommend a combination of skincare products and an array of personalized cosmetic treatments performed in their offices, including:

  • Microneedling
  • Chemical peels
  • Laser skin rejuvenation
  • Laser hair removal
  • CoolSculpting® Elite
  • Medical-grade facials

“Not everyone will respond to treatments the same way. We all have different skin. I look forward to helping every patient have the best aesthetics experience possible and obtain the beautiful skin you’ve always wanted.”
