MELISSA VIALPANDO, MA, ME, CLT, LSO
Melissa Vialpando found her passion in skincare in 2001 while managing a
high-end beauty retail store. She decided to pursue her love for skincare
after many years in the beauty industry; becoming a licensed esthetician in
2009. Her drive for education and knowledge of more advanced skincare
techniques took her to Atlanta for a Medical Aesthetics certification in
2011. Melissa opened her own skincare practice in 2012, offering facials,
dermaplane, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, waxing, lash extensions and more.
She again found herself wanting to know more about medical aesthetics and went back to school in 2015 to get her Medical Assistant Certification. She began working with Dr. Lee Goldberg in his cardiology office later that year, while continuing to practice skincare on evenings and weekends. Melissa has become a certified laser technician (CLT), laser safety officer (LSO), certified in microneedling and non-invasive body sculpting. Dr. Goldberg's interest in a Medical Aesthetics Practice, along with Melissa's background in skincare is what brought them together at Vein and Aesthetics of Tucson.

“Dr. Goldberg, Melissa, and Jennifer are an amazing team as they truly care about their patients and make you feel comfortable. I needed help with leg veins. I was treated with sclerotherapy and laser. During my treatment, Dr. Goldberg and team took the extra time to make sure nothing was missed and all the areas I was concerned about were taken care of. Aside from the artistic touch, they make sure your medical care is a focus as well, and you heal properly. Followed up care was explained in detail. I also was given a small touch up at no cost at my follow up appointment. I really appreciated that!."
