I am originally from Minnesota. I have a bachelor’s degree in molecular biology and biochemistry. I worked in clinical and research in molecular cytogenetics at Mayo Clinic and Emory University Hospital. I then completed a masters degree of science in physician assistant studies, in Savannah, Georgia. I then returned to Mayo Clinic in Minnesota and joined the lymphoma group in the Hematology division. While I am very passionate about cancer, I began to develop an interest in aesthetics and eventually left the field of oncology to work in aesthetics. I love learning and I’m constantly researching new techniques and treatments. My initial interest in aesthetics began when I went to see a dermatologist in 2007, at age 27, for anti aging recommendations. They basically laughed at me and I felt embarrassed for even making an appointment. I was told to use sunblock and to start using a retinol. Things have changed dramatically since 2007 when it comes to anti-aging and there is so much innovation and research in the field of aesthetics! It is never too late and never too early. I love helping identify patient concerns and developing comprehensive treatment plans to get results! In my spare time, I love anything outdoors and visiting national parks. I love cooking, eating healthy and working out. I have two Italian greyhounds fur babies and spend a lot of time with them! I also continue to volunteer in the field of Oncology as a medical volunteer and reviewer for First Descents, which is a nonprofit for young adults affected by cancer.
Hello, I’m Alejandro Perez, MMS, PA-C
I am a nationally certified Physician Assistant with over 3 years of experience in the Emergency department. I received my training and education at Nova Southeastern University with a Master’s Degree in Medical Science in Physician Assistant studies. I am a certified botulinum toxin neuromodulator and dermal filler injector and also certified in PDO threads. I am passionate about making sure my patients feel confident and beautiful in their own skin. At a young age, I was one who struggled with acne and lack of confidence, which affected my self-image. Being treated for the acne gave me a feeling of joy and a sense of better physical and emotional health. That feeling resonates in me to pay it forward to my patients. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog, Bently, video games, boating, fishing and anything that involves being outdoors.
