When Ed Fritz and Kelly DiStefano, MD, opened Montclair Rejuvenation Center West in West Caldwell in January 2022, they had two goals. They wanted to offer area residents the same quality and affordable aesthetic services as they did in their first location, Montclair Rejuvenation Center in Verona. With a staff of 22 dedicated professionals—all experts in specific therapies—and the addition of their West Caldwell location, their mission is fulfilled.

Staff member Alessandra Vernice, BSN, RN, CEN, is a certified nurse injector specializing in injectable health treatments. Formerly an emergency room nurse, Vernice enjoys her current position as an aesthetic nurse. Popular procedures that she offers include Botox® and dermal fillers to rejuvenate the face. Botox® injections are known to be used to help with migraines.

Vernice also specializes in other treatments. One treatment includes hair growth and skin treatments with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is part of a facial treatment that can lift discolorations and revitalize the skin of the face. She also injects vitamin-rich platelets from the patients into the scalp. When injected into the scalp, PRP stimulates hair growth.

A treatment that is in high demand is the Intravenous (IV) hydration service. Multiple vitamins, namely B and B12, are put in the IV fluid. Treatment outcomes include skin improvement, increased energy, suppressed appetites, and general well-being feelings. Vitamin B12 may also offer increased vitality when injected into the shoulder. The effects of these therapies are immediate, lasting two or more weeks.

“Transitioning into aesthetics has given me that ability to help people become the best versions of themselves in everyday lives. Confidence is the best outfit, and when we feel good, we do good,” Vernice says. “I love seeing my patients light up after treatment. To share their joy is indescribable!”
