Practice Philosophy

A Positive Experience from Start to Finish

Dr. Welden believes in using several different treatment modalities that work synergistically to get the best cosmetic outcome for each patient. In addition, we utilize state of the art treatments with modalities to minimize any discomfort felt with these treatments. We believe that cosmetic treatment does not have to be painful. We use Zimmer Chiller as well as numbing creams for decreased pain and increase effectiveness of all treatments.

Limelight Laser and Medical Spa is a physician-directed cosmetic practice. Dr. Welden does all the Botox injections, fillers, and most of the laser treatments. We also have a staff of physician assistants, nurses, and cosmetologist that are passionate about meeting all your treatment needs.

With a belief that there is a strong correlation between emotional and physical health, Dr. Welden has directly observed that when patients feel good about their appearance, their mood increases and stress decreases. He is intrigued by the power of aesthetic medicine and its ability to incorporate emotional and physical well-being to make patients look and feel their best.

At Limelight Laser and Medical Spa we utilize a wide array of state-of-the-art laser and light aesthetic devices that have been curated by Dr. Welden to provide you the most value in getting the results you desire. We are passionate about the technology and work to exceed your expectations by combining treatments to give you dramatic results without any or little downtime.

We also believe that good overall health plays an important part in your appearance and thus strive to rejuvenate and improve your overall health. One such method is our hormone therapy service (HRT) that enhances athletic performance, mood, libido, and assertiveness.

We work closely with our patients to create custom-tailored, medically guided treatment plans that optimize their natural beauty.
