When Dr. Sholar decided to become a plastic surgeon, she had the vision of providing not just an aesthetic surgery or treatment for her patients, but a complete support system where they could feel fulfilled. After 20 years in surgical practice and much soul searching, she realized that women need a better way to skin health- smarter skincare with scientific substance- but it’s just as much about the soul. She wanted to encourage women to reflect their beauty and strength within to the outside, and in turn, feel their most confident, sexy, and strong in their 30’s, 40’s, and beyond.  She wanted to give women Beauty With Substance in more than any medspa, thus Skin Science Soul was born.

Skin Science Soul Medical Aesthetics is where she merges all her knowledge and wisdom as a plastic surgeon with her life’s mission to empower women to feel confident and beautiful from the inside out.

The official mission and higher purpose:

To encourage each of our patients to live to their fullest potential, which is achieved when they take care of themselves and begin to see themselves as the beautiful beings they already are!

A Word from Dr. Sholar…

“When you see your reflection in the mirror, what do you tell yourself?  (Be honest.)

I want to serve up to you a new way to look at yourself… and I guarantee that where we are going together, you will never say those same old things to yourself or think those same old, tired self-shaming thoughts. I want you to see yourself through the eyes of God, as the beautiful woman you truly are!  We believe that each woman is naturally and uniquely beautiful.  We also understand that most people have insecurities that can hold them back in their life. Our purpose is to enhance your natural beauty and to give you the confidence that you need and deserve, letting your inner light shine on through! 

Now, let’s get started…

Love, DrS”


You will not leave here the same. You’ll see what we mean. Your confidence will blossom and your heart will bloom!
