John J.W. Lee, MD, Oculoplastic Surgeon
Dr. Lee is our medical director and also the leader of the Lux team. His standard of excellence is evident in every aspect of his career. While in medical school it became clear to Dr. Lee that he could not be the best at everything. That is why he chose to specialize in a very specific field of surgery- oculoplastics. Everyone can agree that their eyes have a very important function. However, they also play the greatest role in how people perceive their well-being. Most surgeons will agree that eyelid surgery is the most detailed & scrutinized cosmetic procedure and this challenge is what drew Dr. Lee to this field.
Notably, he has performed over ten thousand eyelid & brow procedures, honing his skills to provide patients with results that are always very natural yet noticeable. Dr. Lee also has also mastered facial sculpting with injectables using a combination of Botox and facial fillers, creating one of the most successful and highly rated practices in the US. Under his wing, Dr. John Lee has trained many medical professionals including nurses, dentists, and doctors on how to provide the optimal results using injectables at his facility. So wowed, his patients regularly travel from all over the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia to seek his medical expertise. In Dr. John Lee's personal life~ he is married to a supportive wife and has 3 wonderful children! He enjoys traveling, scuba diving, especially island life and spending quality time with his family.
Joseph Castelli, DO
Dr. Joseph Castelli has been performing cosmetic injections for over a decade. He was introduced to the aesthetic field by Dr. Lee, a close friend. He performs the same micro-dot Botox injection technique as Dr. Lee and also the advanced filler injection technique using the micro-cannula. Dr. Castelli's detailed eyes and his emphasis on safety while having a keen aesthetic eye is why Dr. Lee pursued him to join him. This is also why Dr. Lee allows only Dr. Castelli to perform his botox and filler treatments.
Dr. Castelli began his aesthetic career by treating his loyal base of thousands of female patients for the past ten years and decided to join our Lux Skin Lasers team to dedicate more of his time to the aesthetic field which he finds extremely rewarding. He loves how a single syringe of filler can make a face look revitalized and refreshed. Dr. Castelli is certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Although he has little time that does not include caring for his patients and spending time with his family, he does find time to serve with a Christian medical team to bring medical care to the poor and needy in Nepal.
Megan Welsh, BSN | Aesthetic Nurse
Our nurse Megan came to meet Dr. Lee as a patient after tirelessly researching the best provider to perform her lower lids filler several years ago. After her experience having fillers, she was hooked and wanted to become a part of this industry and provide the confidence and sense of well being that was achieved with her own filler treatment. She was selected from over 300 applicants to train under Dr. Lee due to her enthusiasm and dedication in becoming an excellent cosmetic provider. She has proven herself to be an exceptional injector with her keen aesthetic sense and per Dr. Lee "great hands".
She received her BSN degree from West Chester University and was employed as an ICU and Charge Nurse on Telemetry prior to joining our Lux team.
