Dr. Jessie Sandlin was a U.S. Naval Flight Surgeon for an F-18 jet squadron, which is where she met her husband, Stephen, a former Navy fighter pilot. Settling in the countryside had always been a dream of the Sandlins and they immediately fell in love with the Texas Hill Country. They found a ranch and moved as soon as Stephen retired from the Navy. Longer than her dream of living on a ranch, however, Dr. Jessie had always dreamed of opening her own aesthetic spa. For aesthetics is where her passion has always lain. She practiced as a Flight Surgeon in the Navy, trained as an anesthesiologist at Harvard, and despite the persistent refrain that her talents "would be wasted" on medical aesthetics, Dr. Jessie moved forward with her ambition. She began her aesthetics training and practice in Miami, Florida, and opened Gilded Palm Aesthetic Spa in downtown Boerne in the summer of 2021.
Dr. Jessie did not want a sterile-feeling, medicinal facility, but rather a lavish, welcoming environment that embodies a sense of luxurious retreat. Gilded Palm is the epitome of concierge medicine. Gilded Palm Spa provides myriad aesthetic services that interact synergistically to address nearly any cosmetic concern from facial aging to unwanted fat, and unsightly leg veins to hair loss. Following your evaluation, you will leave with a written treatment plan and a sparkling rosé so you may bring some of the luxury home.
1. A daily skincare routine that includes retinol at night and SPF throughout the day. I think of retinol as a mini, daily peel. When used consistently, retinol helps decrease fine lines and blemishes while also improving skin tone and texture.
2. We lose 1% of collagen each year after age 20. Sculptra is polylactic acid (PLLA) and is injected into large areas of the deep dermis to stimulate regrowth of your body’s own collagen and elastin.
