Why Choose Inner Glow AestheticsMD?

Dr. Shternfeld is a brilliant, empathetic and talented woman! I went to see her for a consult on the status of the mess I underwent from an inexperienced injector who denied their screw up. Which was scary, as I had a horrible physiological reaction and called the provider for help! (Which is... what you are supposed to do)I was traveling out of state and made the mistake of not doing my research. That screw up not only altered my appearance for months but also risked my health and limited my work, as I had to hide my face for months.Dr Shternfeld was able to deliver a professionalConsult with a reasonable plan, as well as administer correct injections that enhanced my appearance and diminished sinus headaches (as I was accustomed to before my previous traveling mistake). Having a physician who is a highly experienced specialist va a newly unexperienced nurse in a spa environment ..there is no compassion!!! People, even if you have to wait an extra week, see Dr Shternfeld. It's worth your face, your health and your safety.read more

Recently had my first experience with Botox and can’t say enough good things about Inner Glow and Dr. Ilona Shternfeld. During my consult she took the time to get to know me and my goals as well as explain the whole process in full (as I was a little anxious). She is very gentle and there was very... little to no pain at all!! After 3 days I started seeing results and it’s been two weeks and so happy!! There was a little spot that was still moving so I went in for follow up and it was so quick and easy!! I def will be back as a returning customer!!read more

I’m 64 y.o and i had been doing Botox and fillers on and off for the last 10 years . I had been dreading to go every time because it’s so very painful for me (to the point of fainting once. ).Today I had an appointment with dr. Shternfeld and honestly it was least painful, most pleasant... experience I’ve ever had.Needless to say I look and feel younger, refreshed, happier all together.read more

I've travelled several times from Western Massachusetts to have Ilona treat me and every time I go I am always left with an amazing result. I have blepharitis and dry eyes, which means that I am highly allergic to just about anything, even makeup, so having an Ophthalmologist handle my aesthetic... needs was very reassuring. Never once did I feel pressured into anything or rushed for time, Ilona gives you her full and undivided attention and kept me at ease for the entire treatment. I highly recommend this establishment if you are considering any aesthetic procedure near or around your eyes. Ilona is the BEST.read more

Dr. Ilona is absolutely amazing. Her professionalism and knowledge is what truly captivated me. It’s nice to have a service performed and understand what you are receiving, what to do, what not to do and more! I received Dysport in the forehead and neck;Dr. Ilona’s touch is extremely gentle and... not even a bruise…I didn’t even feel the injections. I am thrilled with the results and I can’t wait to go back for fillers! Thank you!!read more

Dr. Shternfeld is wonderful! This was my first time with her for my dysport and she was beyond professional. I’ve seen other people for this service but Dr. Shternfeld was caring and took a lot of time mapping out my face and asking questions throughout the service. She didn’t rush and was very... detailed with her work. It was like night and day compared to other doctors that I have seen. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!read more

Wouldn't go anywhere else on the east coast!I was in CT visiting family from Los Angeles and was recommended Inner Glow by some long time friends and was blown away by the breadth and quality of the services offered. I had a Diamond Glow with Natalie followed by Dysport with Ilona and both... procedures were fantastic. Quick, welcoming, and great results. Would not risk going anywhere else, especially as a young man who is just starting to take skin care more seriously.read more

I whole heartedly give 5 stars to my experience in Inner Glow!!!I have been to other spas for fillers and Botox and in general was satisfied but what is strikingly different with Dr.Shternfeld is her almost artistry in truly reshaping my face that ended up looking naturally my younger self. She ... adjusted proportions with flawless technical expertise.The staff was polite, willing to help when i inquired about products but not pushy to sell.read more

I have been to a few other places in the Farmington Valley and will only see Dr. Shternfeld from now on. She is both professional and extremely knowledgeable . As a medical doctor (not a nurse or PA) her understanding of anatomy is unsurpassed. She is never rushed and all procedures are... carefully explained. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my face!! Dr. S truly loves what she does and and is a top notch injector.read more

Dr. Shternfeld is absolutely the best aesthetic physician you could wish for! I’m a physician myself, and incredibly impressed by her professionalism, skill, inventive solutions, and her dedication to getting it right. I’ve been seeing her since the very beginning of Inner Glow and the things... I’ve had done over time make me look 15 years younger than I am—that’s what everybody says! I've referred my own patients here and they've been super happy with their results. She is amazing!read more

I was extremely lucky to go to Dr. Shternfeld who not only did an excellent job on my Botox but also diagnosed a Basal Cell cancer on my face that had been there for at least two years. I had been to multiple spas and seen multiple people who never noticed the cancer on my face. I feel very... fortunate to have come into her care and can’t thank her enough!!read more

Highly recommend Inner Glow. Came here originally for tear through fillers. She explained everything to me and gave me a better option. I received Botox as well and was informed that with smoking it wasn’t going to last long. She wasn’t pushy just informative. Knowing I had just spent this money on... something I wanted and would continue to get along with getting married in a couple months - it was the final step to me finally quitting smoking. I can’t thank her enough and have gone back for continued treatments since.read more

This is the only place I will let touch my face. The work is outstanding , so professional and the entire office is immaculate! I have been other places previously for dermal fillers and I was not very happy with the results. A family member referred me here and I cannot believe the difference in... my face. Subtle but just perfect. If you’re on the fence about doing this , schedule a consultation with the remarkable Dr,Shternfeld . She is gentle and just fabulous with her work!read more
