Discover a more beautiful you with the professionals who have the experience and expertise to provide them properly. When it comes to medical aesthetics, it makes sense to go with experts who actually know what they are doing.
Stone Creek Wellness & Medical Aesthetics is the smart choice for a wide range of services, including massage therapy, injectables, facials, weight loss, body contouring and more. The facility got its start in 2009 as an extension of Dr. Jennifer Chilek’s Stone Creek family practice and expanded its scope of services with a dedicated staff of trained and licensed medical and aesthetic professionals.
“Stone Creek offers the latest technology in aesthetic procedures to help you look and feel your best,” said manager Linda Teague. “We offer the highest quality treatments, licensed medical professionals on staff and a close, convenient location.”
The use of lasers and chemical injections should be left to professionals, said Donna Lloyd, a registered nurse at Stone Creek. With the medical aesthetics community growing as quickly as it is, consumers need to make sure they do their research. It makes sense to go with professionals who have years of hands on experience.
“Improper injection techniques can lead to adverse effects,” said Lloyd. “They are perfectly safe in the hands of someone who is properly trained and experienced. But it’s a good idea to make sure your licensed medical professional knows what he or she is doing before you let them proceed.”
Stone Creek boasts an impressive range of services, including massage therapy, waxing, weight loss, body contouring and more.
“We offer a wide range of aesthetic services, like HydraFacials, dermal fillers, chemical peels, microneedling and Botox,” said Teague. “The difference in the way you look and feel can be amazing.”
Aesthetic services can enhance and improve an individual’s physical appearance. The key is to address potential problem areas before the effects of sun, stress and age cause significant damage to the skin. For women, that means getting started with a proactive program in their 30s and 40s, although it’s never too late.
“There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution − everybody is different,” said Lloyd. “So it’s essential to develop a program for your particular situation.”
Among the newest additions to the staff is Lisa McClinton, a veteran aesthetician and permanent makeup artist, formerly of Still Waters Wellness Spa & Salon Studio. She has a decade of hands on experience with enhancing facial features.
“We use the soft tap, manual approach to applications that augment the physical appearance of eyebrows, eye liner and lips in a very natural looking way,” she said. “It’s a more precise technique that provides better results with less discomfort and faster healing times.”
To serve the needs of its clients, Stone Creek monitors advancements in medical technology, introducing new services that enhance lifestyle and improve physical appearance.
The use of bio-identical hormones may not be new, but BioTE’s medical pellet delivery system is a major step forward in providing a simple, easy and efficient way to regulate estrogen and testosterone hormones.
“Balancing hormones can be an important part of the aging process,” said Dr. Jeremy McWilliams, a veteran physician board certified in family medicine. “It can have a major effect on one’s energy, stamina, libido, anxiety and aches and pains.”
The process is simple. Following a blood test, the physician knows the type and amount of hormone necessary to benefit the patient. Small pellets are painlessly introduced under the skin to provide the proper amount of natural, non-synthetic hormone to release over an extended period of time.
“Most men only need to update their pellet twice a year and women three to four times a year,” said Dr. McWilliams. “It’s a lot more convenient than keeping up with prescriptions, remembering to take pills or put up with messy, potentially hazardous lotions. Our patients are loving their pellets. In the past two years, we have done over 500 pellet procedures.”
Stone Creek has been doing pellet optimization therapy for more than two years and it is the single most life-improving therapy the facility offers, according to Dr. McWilliams. Offering pellets to his patients and seeing the results that they are experiencing gives him another reason that he is glad that he is a doctor, he said.
For those seeking a slimmer profile, Stone Creek offers a number of solutions, including non-invasive fat removal with Coolsculpting and the HCG rapid weight loss diet program.
Coolsculpting is a patented process in which fat cells are frozen and removed naturally from the body forever. The process can target specific body areas for the slimming technique that is fast and painless.
“Stone Creek Wellness is part of a legitimate medical practice,” said Chilek. “That’s an important difference when it comes to safety and medical expertise.”
To relieve stress and muscular aches, Stone Creek offers a wide range of massage services, including therapeutic, deep tissue, sports, Swedish, prenatal and body scrub. The team of professionals includes Carol Donina, an award-winning, dual-licensed aesthetician and massage therapist with nearly a decade of experience.
“She gives amazing facials,” added Teague. “She’s very popular in the Lake Conroe area.”
Stone Creek also offers professional counseling services: therapy for individuals, couples, children and families provided by Terri Rosenthal, LMFT. Services include ADD/ADHD testing and treatment of autism and spectrum disorders.
“We truly care about our clients,” said Teague. “Whether someone is a regular or coming for the first time, our goal is to make them comfortable and achieve their best possible look.”
Of course that means having realistic expectations.
“We have achieved some remarkable accomplishments, but miracles are rare,” quipped Lloyd. “The best bet is to improve and enhance slowly. You will look the best you have looked in years and our goal is to assist you in looking the best for your age.”
