I’m Dr. Menezes

For more than 15 years, practicing Aesthetic Medicine has been my way of sharing loving kindness with my patients and community. When you look and feel like yourself and your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony, you are at your best to share love and light with the world. My  Aesthetic Medicine clinic was designed for everyone and not limited by age, gender or skin tone. All are welcome to rest, rejuvenate, and shine here.

Education & Training

I received my Doctorate in Medicine from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and was a Diplomate in Good Standing with the American Board of Family Physicians for more than 15 years. After completing residency and tenure as Chief Resident at the University of Missouri-Columbia, I relocated to Kauai and began practicing Family Medicine in Kilauea. I was fortunate to be one of the first physicians in Hawaii to be trained to inject neurotoxin and filler. For more than a decade and a half, I  practiced primary care medicine and developed my Aesthetic medicine skills.  Over time, I was able to curate the products and procedures that were of most service to my unique Aesthetic patient base. In 2015 I closed my Family Medicine practice to open my Aesthetic Medicine clinic.  I designed my new clinic space in Lihue for the comfort and safety of my patients and to practice state of the art  Aesthetic Medicine full time.

Today, I am a licensed Medical Doctor and one of the most experienced Aesthetic practitioners in Hawaii. I have been performing facial rejuvenation and volume restoration with JUVEDERM® injections since 2006 and am recognized by Allergan as a master injector. I am always on the lookout for new technology, procedures, and treatments that align with my values as a provider and deliver exceptional results.

When I am not in the clinic, I enjoy spending time with my two sons, cooking, gardening/tropical landscape management, hiking with my dogs and friends and writing about the things that heal my heart. You can read some of my pieces on the Spiritual Rx blog on this site. I believe that spiritual and mental health is foundational to total health, and enjoy sharing things I have learned from meditation, books, and spiritual practices throughout my life.
