Practitioners at Skin Love MedSpa are chosen not only for their rigorous training backgrounds, consummate skill, and verified artistry but also for the ways in which they contribute to an overall environment of respect and compassion that sets Skin Love MedSpa apart as a nurturing and revitalizing sanctuary in the heart of Silicon Valley.
Each team member is dedicated and devoted to patient safety, satisfaction, and renewal, providing guidance and support at every stage of the treatment process. Skin Love MedSpa by Cheng Plastic Surgery offers a family-like atmosphere where patients feel they can be themselves and that they will be unconditionally accepted and embraced.
Lastly, our practitioners believe in empowering clients, not breaking them down. We focus on celebrating each patient’s unique beauty and positive attributes, with our treatments merely working to restore inner and outer confidence.
We will never suggest any procedures that are not truly in the client’s best interests or that do not reflect their expressed goals and wishes for improvement. Our sense of integrity guides our every step at Skin Love MedSpa, where we embody the “love” in our name — always.
Judi Tapfer, RN
Judi has practiced aesthetic skin care in the Bay Area since 1999 and is a top injector. In fact, she was training physicians and nurses in the art of Botox injections long before Botox was a household name! Judi is also well-versed in the use of many lasers to address all kinds of aesthetic concerns. With her substantial skill set and her attention to aesthetic detail, she combines science and art to help each person enhance their natural beauty.
Judi’s successful, professional nursing career has been all about helping. For decades she served as a Labor and Delivery Nurse at El Camino Hospital, distinguished by her calm, professional presence assisting women. She brings that same caring approach to helping her clients meet their beauty refinement goals.
Judi obtained her BSN in 1977 from the University of Oregon Health Sciences Center in Portland, Oregon, where she was born and raised. In her free time, Judi loves ballroom dancing, hiking, Pilates, reading historical novels, and playing word games.
Growing up, Maddie always knew she wanted to have a career in the skincare and beauty industry. You will always find her trying the newest skincare and esthetics products. Her love for her patients and her result driven treatments truly gives you a one-of-a-kind experience.
Around the office, Maddie doubles as our Redwood City medspa manager and esthetician so we are lucky enough to have her at both locations!
Out of the office, Maddie is a committed mom to her 2 dogs and 3 cats; on the weekends, she’s most likely catching a workout class, spending time with her family and friends, or traveling the world.
