BARB

Barb has been with Northcoast Laser Cosmetics since 2007. She is a registered nurse, managing esthetician and a certified aesthetic consultant. She is a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine. Barb specializes in Botox Cosmetic® treatments, laser hair removal, radio frequency pixel skin rejuvenation, microneedling and Coolsculpting®. Prior to coming on board at Northcoast Laser, she worked in the field of cardiology. She loves working with cosmetic clients because of the upbeat nature of their care, and the fact she gets to see “real” improvement in their looks in such a short period of time.

In her spare time, you might see Barb swimming, gardening or on the golf course. She is also a huge fan of the Cleveland Indians, Cavs and Browns, so talk nice about our professional sports teams!


MELISSA

Melissa, a Licensed Practical Nurse, joined Northcoast Laser Cosmetics in 2014, and brings a wealth of medical knowledge to our team. She worked for seven years in the Cardiac Stepdown Unit at University Hospital and two years in an Urgent Care Center for the Cleveland Clinic. Our team doesn’t think she looks old enough to have this much experience! She finds great satisfaction in helping men and women in her hometown area improve their looks non-surgically. She specializes in Laser Hair Removal, Coolsculpting, Microneedling, Radio Frequency Microneedling, and is an Advanced Trained ZO Skinhealth provider. Melissa has two boys and enjoys travelling, cooking, and spending time with her family.


Carly

Northcoast Laser Cosmetics is pleased to welcome Carly Genova to our professional team! Carly, a graduate of Ursuline College, is a Licensed Nurse Practitioner with extensive experience caring for hospitalized patients in the Lake Health System. She will perform a wide range of skin rejuvenation and beauty procedures, and is available extended evening hours for consultations. Carly was born and raised in Concord, Ohio, and is thrilled to provide quality care to patients in this area. However, she also has another passion: her animals. She is an avid horseback rider and enjoys lots of trail time with her horse, Johnny. But, there are also dogs, cats, a rabbit, chinchilla, a sugar glider, lizards, frogs and fish that share her home! She is a true caregiver on all fronts.

In her (small amount of) spare time, she also enjoys hiking, books, and cooking. Welcome, Carly!
