Aesthetic Nurse Injector

“I really enjoy working with patients to achieve their aesthetic goals. Seeing amazing results and positive changes in our patients makes my job so fulfilling.”

“I really enjoy working with patients to achieve their aesthetic goals. Seeing amazing results and positive changes in our patients makes my job so fulfilling.”

We are thrilled to have Melissa join our practice. For many of you, she needs no introduction.  Her reputation for technical excellence and elegance is forged by 21 years of injecting experience right here in Knoxville.

Compassionate, nurturing, and calming, Melissa takes the time to listen to patients while kindly and expertly guiding them towards the results they’re wanting to achieve.

All of her patients from “Nervous Nellies” to injectable veterans are impressed by her personalized approach to their care and her gentle touch with a needle.

Melissa started her career as an Aesthetic Nurse Injector back in 1998. Those were the days of bovine collagen before anyone had ever heard of hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane and Juvederm.

In an area where new products are often coming to market, Melissa is uniquely qualified to choose the right product for each patient’s budget and goals, rather than wasting money on trendy, short-lived injectables.

In addition to her vast experience with injectables, Melissa’s background in dermatology and proficiency with lasers is a great asset to our patients. Together, Melissa and Christy and Dr. Reath will evaluate the newest technologies and ingredients to give the best results to our patients.

Natasha Self

CoolSculpting Technician and Surgery Coordinator

"I've always been such a people person, and helping both patients and Dr. Reath has been very fulfilling. Seeing patients post-operatively and their amazing results is one of the best parts of my job!"

“I’ve always been such a people person, and helping both patients, and Dr. Reath has been very fulfilling. Seeing patients post-operatively and their amazing results is one of the best parts of my job!”

We are so lucky to have found Natasha. She has been working in our office for ten years, and every day we wonder how we ever managed without her. Quietly effective and totally charming, Natasha takes care of all of our patients having surgery and is entirely in charge of managing Dr. Reath’s busy surgical calendar. Her expertise has been honed by over 16 years in the healthcare industry, so she doesn’t scare easily.

You’ll get to meet Natasha at the end of your consultation with Dr. Reath. She’ll guide you through the nuts and bolts of the surgery process: the quote, what to expect and help you find the time on Dr. Reath’s schedule that is most convenient for you. If you’re interested in financing your surgery, Natasha can help with that as well.

If you’ve had a CoolSculpting procedure done in our office, you’ve already met Natasha. She is an Elite Master CoolSculpting Technician, which is what she does when Dr. Reath is not in clinic. Truly she’s a wonder.

When picking a plastic surgeon, Dr. Reath always advises patients to pay particular attention to the office staff because they are the ones with whom you will be spending the most time. You’ll thoroughly enjoy your time with Natasha.

With over eleven years of medical experience, including dermatology, general surgery, plastic surgery, and skin care, Cassina is an invaluable asset to our practice. She combines vast medical knowledge with a warm, genuine fondness for our patients and their well-being.

You may see her smiling face in the front office, offering patient care, answering patient questions, scheduling, and assisting with products. She is also likely to be found in the back office during clinic, assisting patients with their consultations, helping with post-op appointments, and follow up visits.

Cassina can usually work magic with new patient appointments. If you are anxious about a surgery date, just be sure to let her know, and she will move heaven and earth to find you a spot.

She is also in charge of our online store RealMedicalSkinCare.com and lovingly packages your orders.
