New Building. New Personnel. New Services.
Governors MedSpa & Concierge Medicine has a new home in Kennesaw, a 9,000-square-foot facility that has opened the door for Drs. Heath and Ashley Trowell to offer new services and personnel as they look forward to the new year in 2023.
The new two-story office features a sleek and modern medical atmosphere. Patients enter into a retail space that is dedicated to skin care and the newly-added Jane Iredale mineral makeup line. The space features tall ceilings, a custom air scent diffuser and has more exam rooms to enhance the medical and aesthetic experience.
Under one roof, patients can access a range of services, from primary care medicine with sick and wellness exams for adults and children, to aesthetic treatments, hormone balance
treatments and weight-loss programs.
“Patients love to come to our clinic because they have the convenience of getting their medications refilled in the same appointment as a flu shot and a Botox touch-up, while their children get their sports physicals,” Dr. Heath said.
In personnel. Wendy Allard, NP-C has joined Governors as a medical aesthetician. She is a board-certified nurse practitioner with more than 15 years of clinical experience. Wendy’s career started in intensive care and transitioned to emergency medicine. She spent almost a decade at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta as a trauma emergency nurse, then moved to Tanner Medical Center. She gained experience in retail medicine when she worked to expand CVS Health, Minute Clinic, before pursuing aesthetics.
Wendy is certified in medical aesthetics, focusing on neuromodulators and dermal fillers. At Governors, she combines her love of medicine with the ability to bring out the inner beauty in her patients. She is a perfectionist with a conservative approach; she believes that looking good on the outside can have an impact on how a person feels on the inside.
In weight loss. The doctors are seeing a common struggle among their patients. Say goodbye to the freshman 15 and hello to the COVID 25!
“We have many patients still dealing with the aftermath of COVID-19 from a weight perspective,” Dr. Ashley said. “To help, we have several programs in our clinic that assist with this: appetite-suppression medications, energy-boosting shots and the newest treatment: Semaglutide.”
Semaglutide is a GLP-1 product that helps the body process foods and sugars, decreases appetites and is safe to use for several months to help patients reach their goal weight. Another new injectable medication is Ipamorelin, which is a natural growth hormone that increases cell synthesis and increases ghrelin in the stomach, which releases GH and controls hunger.
In rejuvenation. “Let’s talk about sex! No one wants to talk about sex or menopause, which are two things that change as we age,” Dr. Ashley said. “We now offer several procedures and medications to maintain your sexual function and desire that may otherwise decrease because of the aging process in men and women.”
Exilis Femme 360 is an FDA-approved procedure to assist in urinary discomfort and increase blood flow to the vagina for lubrication and pleasure. Injectables including the P and the O shot
for men and women are available. Biote HRT can assist in desire and comfort for men and women, along with the new PT-141 that works as an injectable Viagra that has fewer side effects and lasts longer than traditional treatments.
In aesthetics. A variety of medical-grade facials and treatments are available with little or no downtime. The latest options include combination treatment therapies: Microneedling with RF followed by Sculptra or TCA application, or by CoolPeel resurfacing laser with PRP. Vi Peels are being combined with neurotoxins or fillers post-application. Diamond Glow is a three-in-one exfoliant, pore reduction and serum-infusing facial that leaves the skin literally glowing for several days.
In communication. Governors has a new app to download that allows patients to schedule appointments, view monthly promotions, and purchase flash sales at their leisure. A QR code
for Biote allows direct ship-to-home purchasing of supplements.
