Dr. Barad is well known in Pittsburgh for her aesthetic expertise, artistic eye, holistic approach and keen ability to help people achieve the natural look they desire, and achieve overall revitalization. And while her medical practice has been thriving for the past 20 years, her interest in aesthetics actually goes all the way back to her childhood.
“I developed an early appreciation for this field as my mother opened the first skin care studios in the Bay Area of California. She was, and is, an aesthetician, having trained in Paris, France. My mother instilled in me the importance of skin care and sun protection - and stimulated my interest in aesthetics. After completing medical school, residency and fellowship, and entering private practice, I blended all my loves - medicine, art, skin care and science, to create my current practice. Over the years I also developed an interest in alternative medicine as my involvement in anti-aging medicine has evolved. There is evidence that natural pathways to health have wide-reaching ramifications which reflect in one’s appearance and wellbeing. The skin, as the largest organ of our body, reflects one’s general health, hormone balance, nutritional state, and psychological state. An integrative approach to skin care and rejuvenation optimizes aesthetic outcomes and ultimately can improve health.”
