Our Medical Director
Christy L. Cone, MD
Founder and Medical Director of AesthetiSpa, Dr. Christy Cone firmly believes in being your best self, both inside and out. In today’s hectic world, stress, sun, and just daily living can take a toll on all of us. Whether it’s sun damage, aging, acne, extra lumps and bumps, all of it affects our self-esteem, confidence and body image, which can lead to stress, anxiety, and depression. And in turn, that’s what we end up presenting to the world. After observing how positive aesthetic outcomes can encourage a brighter mood, a more positive outlook, and increased confidence, Dr. Cone made it her mission to bestow these “side effects” on all her clients so they can look and feel their best, every single day.
A summa cum laude graduate of Clemson Honors College and earning her MD from MUSC, Dr. Cone began her career in Family Medicine. Soon after, Aesthetic Medicine began to emerge as an area of practice, and piquing her interest, she jumped on board and founded AesthetiSpa Cosmetic Skin and Laser Center in 2004. On the forefront of many advances in non-surgical cosmetic rejuvenation, Dr. Cone is a renowned expert in anti-aging and non-invasive aesthetic procedures for the face and body. She is designated a Master Injector, and has extensive experience in the advanced uses of fillers, Sculptra and neurotoxins for treatment of wrinkles, volume loss, cellulite, skin laxity and medical conditions such as excessive sweating, acne, hair loss and more. She has comprehensive training, expertise, and certification in the usage of multiple laser platforms, radiofrequency devices, and body contouring. Additionally, her years of skincare experience and product knowledge have garnered AesthetiSpa top tier status with both Allergan (Botox, Juvederm, Latisse, SkinMedica) and Galderma (Dysport, Restylane, Sculptra).
Dr. Cone is Board certified in Family Medicine, a Diplomat of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine, and a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. Her other affiliations include the American Academy of Family Practice, American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, American Medical Spa Association, International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine, American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine, American Academy of Procedural Medicine, and the Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.
In addition to making her clients feel beautifully confident, inside and out, Dr. Cone enjoys spending time with her family, reading, and walking on the beach. She lives in Mt. Pleasant with her family.
