I have entrusted Gabriel with my skin for years. His love and passion for skin care set him apart. I consider him among the elite skincare specialists in Tulsa. I am one that does not like to spend a lot of time on skin care, I am not going to consistently apply 5 or more different things in a regimen. Gabriel’s regimen is simple and makes a remarkable difference. My skin no longer appears discolored, dry or aged. I would recommend Gabriel to anyone seeking to improve the appearance and overall health of their skin.

I have been going to see Gabriel for years and I have never been happier with my skin. He made me feel comfortable the minute we met. He has been in this field long enough that he knows the answers to your questions before you ask them. One of the things I appreciate the most is even if you are able to use ALL of the products and services that he provides, he only advises you based on what your real needs are. I've never been over sold and I got the results I wanted. Personally, he is an incredible listener. His business name truly does reflect his intention... you leave far more “uplifted” than when you arrive. His practice is more holistic than just skincare. You find yourself returning for skin health with just a touch of spirit “uplifting" as well. I happen to have an active, public life that requires me being in front of large groups and media outlets. We all know you can only cover so much with make up in the age of HD, and this man took care of my skin so I didn’t have to even think about it. It allowed me to be more in the moment of my day and not focused on what the camera is or isn’t seeing.

I first met Gabe just prior to my 30th birthday. I decided I’ld work on my extreme fear of having myself photographed. But before I did, I wanted to work on those pesky chicken pox scars from my teenage years. A friend mentioned, “There’s this guy who can wipe them away.“ Of course I was hesitant but I was willing to give him a shot. Well, with Gabe you get the whole truth and nothing but the truth. The goal required some commitment from me: I had to step out of the sun. No more fake tanning! Good sunscreen daily. I had to prepare my skin for what I now call the “Mac-daddy peel.” It’s intense. It takes several days before you shed your skin. But once it did... voila... most of the scars were gone. But also my skin just felt tighter and looked younger. I stuck with it and I’ve stayed with Gabe for ten years! I trust him as much as I trust that the sun will rise tomorrow. We have a lot of fun. We laugh. We cry, too. I was thinking the other day how special our relationship is.... and it is... but I bet so many people feel the same way, and that’s because of who Gabe is as a human. I’ve also never felt like he was selling me something. He’s not so much selling hope in a jar as he is helping you discover the best version of yourself, both inside and out. Gabe is the intersection between your outer and inner self... and that’s rare. He’s a pro. He cares. He continues to learn. He’s private. He works weekends, when you’re in a pinch, and, I can tell him anything. Now, what could be better than that? My 20s? Nah, I’m happy with 40!

When we first met, neither of us needed him but he has truly helped me with the texture of my skin and my specific hereditary issues as I age. I know that what he tells me to use, will work. There is so much out there…how do you know? He can tell you. I love how specialized he is in the treatments he provides. I feel like he has been in this field long enough to know what works and what doesn’t. He also considers what long term effects of some more aggressive therapies are, and helps you evaluate your need/risk ratio and find what’s best for you. If he doesn’t do it, he knows who does. He knows I’m not going to spend 30 minutes putting creams and lotions on, I have a business that won’t run itself so I have to keep it simple. His stuff takes me less than 5 minutes and I’m outta there.

I have had the privilege of sharing numerous clients/patients with Gabe over the years. In my experience, Gabe is professional and knowledgeable when treating clients. I feel that he gives his clients honest recommendations and appropriate treatment regimens. I have been a personal client of Gabe’s, and he does a great job making my eyebrows look fabulous.

As the mother of a beautiful and very social teenage girl, it hurt my heart so much when she started struggling with acne. I saw her self-confidence dropping and I knew we needed to find someone to help. A classmate's mother recommended Gabriel to us and I am forever grateful! He is wonderful. He truly listened to my daughter while she expressed her skin concerns. He provided her with a good home routine and explained to her the importance of consistency. We have been seeing him regularly for the past 6-8 months and the difference in her skin is truly amazing! She is a teenager so of course she still breaks out on occasion, but she knows what to do to manage the breakouts and she feels confident knowing that she can ask Gabriel any skin care questions she has. He has truly worked miracles for us! He is kind, caring, professional, knowledgeable and simply amazing at his profession.
Tamera Tewis, mother of Kamryn
Gabe is just the best! My skin has not only looked better than it ever has, but feels so much better. We all want it to look radiant, but to have it feel this way is truly the best part. I can’t say enough. He’s that guy that every girl needs in her life. Laughter, compassion, honesty, some more laughter, a shoulder if you need it..... more laughter and.... skin to be so proud of. There is something about the space Gabe provides for you to feel completely comfortable. We go to professionals with all our insecurities and risk our appearance in an effort to improve our appearance, and the most important detail is whether or not the professional is trustworthy. There is never a question with Gabe... If you’ve met him, you know. I will always text him first if something sounds too good to be true... it usually is.. and he giggles with me not at me. He likes a shiny object too, thank God he knows if its worth it and you can take what he says to the bank. When I moved here from Houston, I was assembling “my team” and kept hearing his name and when I finally got to him, I understood why. He does this procedure that I LOVE called a Modified Jessner, we call it “the jezznuh,” as it should be... I can’t remember how many we have done, but we still giggle when we say it. It’s the best little mid-day peel that tightens my skin and the only side effect is light flaking. Sign me up!

As a plastic surgeon having worked with Gabriel side by side for twenty plus years, I can readily say that his skill set is excellent and encompasses a broad knowledge of medical aesthetics. The bottom line is that Gabriel has a superior scope of ability, but most importantly knows his limitations and seeks consult when appropriate. I am very happy with the help he has given me and would whole heartedly recommend him for your current or future aesthetic needs. Joey Manduano, D.O., F.A.C.O.S, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon
I first went to Gabe when I was 20 years old after a photographer had recommended a regime of fillers and botox to maintain my youth. I consulted with a plastic surgeon who referred me to Gabe. Gabe did an overhaul on my skincare routine, preached the necessity of great sun protection and encouraged routine facials over invasive procedures. I can honestly say, I have better skin over a decade later in large part due to Gabe's education and services. Every time I am in Tulsa, I make a point to see Gabe. I love going into his bright, beautiful office and completely trust that I will leave with refreshed skin and renewed confidence. I have worked with some of the most highly sought after estheticians in NYC and LA and I truly feel that Gabe ranks among the best in the country and is using some of the greatest technology and tools available on the market. Tulsa is so lucky to have him!
