Dr. Jed Horowitz & Dr. Larry Nichter

Dr. Jed Horowitz & Dr. Larry Nichter

Medical Directors

BioSpa is owned and operated by renowned board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Horowitz and Dr. Nichter. They both bring over 25 years of experience in the aesthetic field. Dr. Horowitz and Dr. Nichter not only oversee day-to-day operations, but they also perform treatments on a patient-requested basis. As both doctors know, it is very important that patients are informed about who is running the medical spa they choose to be treated at. Proper training, education, and credentials to maintain a safe and reputable practice is essential.

Unfortunately, medical spa regulations are not as stringent as they should be. Therefore, at some other MedSpas, someone who is not properly qualified could be performing the treatments. Even with non-surgical cosmetic treatments, patient safety should always be the number one priority. That is the focus at BioSpa, in addition to providing exceptional service, personalized care, and outstanding results.
