Missouri born and raised, Leslie Wren started her family and nursing career in the Show Me State before relocating to the Sunshine State. It was in Florida, while serving her community in Emergency Rooms, that Leslie started to realize the need for, and importance of, advanced skin care.
After ten years in Florida, Leslie and her family moved to California with a long sighted plan to start her own esthetics company while still serving the local community in Emergency Rooms.
Leslie’s first step into the world of esthetic medicine was eyelash extensions. Leslie quickly became known for her skill and quality work, as a result her business grew quickly by word of mouth.
Working in a local ER during this time, Leslie met and worked with Elizabeth Faulk, MD, and Meloni Lutzi, RN. The three shared many conversations about the Leslie’s business and their shared view of a need of treatment outside of emergency medicine.
The common theme of “We help people on their worst day, let’s help them to their best days,” Leslie, Meloni, and Elizabeth joined together and put their unique skills to work opening Ageless Image Medical Spa where they could fulfill the skin treatment void.
Leslie’s entrepreneurial drive and vision is vital to Ageless Images success as the company grows from a small start up, navigating the seas of a new business, to a beacon for individuals seeking advanced skincare and medical aesthetics.
For over twenty years, Meloni Lutzi’s passion has been serving her community. Starting off as a volunteer firefighter, becoming an EMT, and finally a Registered Nurse working in local Emergency Rooms, where you can still find her being the difference for people in their moment of need. A loving wife and a dedicated mother, guiding her children to strong adults. Through this journey, Meloni begun to see that people needed something more. People needed a place that could help them look and feel their best.
Wanting to create a future for herself in aesthetic medicine, Meloni took her first step into the world of aesthetics and buisness ownership, opening her own buisness offering eyelash extensions and enhancements. Meloni and Leslie, who had her own eyelash buisness, had frequent talks about the pros and limitations of their businesses. These conversations highlighted the need to push forward and offer more. Meloni remarked how great it would be if Elizabeth joined them and they created a team that can offer advanced skin treatment and enhancements.
Along with Leslie Wren (RN) and Elizabeth Faulk (MD), under the guiding principle; “We help people on their worst day, let’s help them to their best day,” The trio created Ageless Image Medical Spa. A place for rejuvenation and enhancement.
Meloni’s genuine and open nature really helps her connect with her patients to find out exactly what they want and how to help guide their care plan from “what I want” to “I love it!”
Dr Faulk spent her early adulthood in the study of Raja Yoga, endeavoring to master the principles of Hatha Yoga and Superconscious Meditation. She is still on this path to this day. After receiving her medical degree at LSUMC in her home town of New Orleans, she completed a General Surgical residency in Chicago at a Level I trauma center, and then was fortunate enough to participate in a Cardiothoracic Surgical clinical and research fellowship at Deaconess Hospital, a Harvard facility. She began her ED work at this time, becoming Chief of the Emergency Department at Page Hospital, a facility in Arizona. After enjoying a 15 year high desert sojourn, she, her husband and kitty moved to California, where she met Leslie and Meloni while working night shifts at Healdsburg Hospital, a facility she works at to this day. Leslie and Meloni introduced her to the concept of aesthetic medicine, and they embarked upon that adventure together….undergoing extensive training, study and certification, which also continues to this day.
