Youthful Images of Connecticut introduced in 1998 a complete clinical skincare in response to many requests for services designed to effectively treat and maintain the skin. Since that time, our priority has been to deliver the most effective, safe lasers and products to our patients. For example, over this time, Dr. Felice has purchased and replaced 14 lasers to keep the clinic current. It has been of utmost importance to Dr. Felice to create a MedSpa in a clinical setting where all aspects of safety including infection control, sterilization of equipment, and maintenance of lasers are a priority. In addition all clinical staff have been professionally trained and licensed.
Under the guidance of Dr. Felice, our physician assistants and registered nurses offer a variety of laser and skin care services. Many of these services utilize procedures available only through a physician’s office. If obtaining and maintaining the best possible complexion interests you; please call for a complimentary skincare consultation/skin evaluation. At your consultation, the physician assistant or nurse will review your medical history and discuss your concerns and expectations to determine with Dr. Felice, if you are a candidate for treatment. The appropriate treatment program and your options for home-care products will then be fully explained.
How to Choose A MedSpa
We Put the Med in Med Spa
There are so many choices today when choosing the services you need from a Med Spa. Unfortunately, there are many Med Spas that cannot support their claims with experience.
Over 30 years ago, Dr. Patrick Felice, a board certified Plastic Surgeon, developed a concept for “One stop shopping for Cosmetic Services”. He felt that such a facility should provide only the most effective and safe methods to reverse aging.
The concept became “Radiansia Total Aesthetic Solutions”
Dr. Felice was one of the first to offer clinically based skincare, laser services, botox and fillers in Connecticut. In addition, he began a successful homecare program and developed his own green based skincare line of products.
Now, Med Spas open on every corner. Very few are directed by physicians specifically trained in this specialty area.
Always question the credentials of those administering your treatment. Don’t be fooled by “Experts” who learned the procedure in a weekend course. Lasers, botox, fillers and many other procedures performed at these facilities can be dangerous in the wrong hands.
Always remember that plastic surgeons and dermatologists are the only specialties trained in these areas. Anything else is simply falling short.
Dr. Patrick Felice
After a five-year residency in General/Trauma surgery and completing board certification, Dr. Felice wanted to combine his artistic passion, with a desire to help patients feel comfortable within their own bodies. It was then, he went on to complete his Plastic Surgery training, obtaining his second board certification and started his private practice in 1990.
Dr. Felice’s background is broad. The son of a stone mason, he was raised to understand the value of hard work and ethical behavior. He has played musical instruments since the age of 5 and enjoys oil painting. His artistic background has given him an appreciation for nature; always striving to achieve natural results for his patients.
His greatest joy is the expression of happiness his patients share upon completion of their procedures. Maintaining ongoing relationships with his patients is of tremendous value to him and gives him continued joy in his work. Dr. Felice has been married to the love of his life, Cathy, for over 40 years. They have 3 children, 2 sons in law, and one daughter in law. The family has now grown to include 3 grandsons.
Dr. Charles Karcutskie
Dr. Charles Karcutskie grew up in a small town outside of Scranton, Pennsylvania. He received his undergraduate degrees from the distinguished Honors College at the University of Pittsburgh, graduating with two majors and two minors focusing on Chemistry, Physics, and Philosophy of Science. He then obtained a Master of Arts degree in Biology from Loyola University Chicago, and returned home to Scranton to attend Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine. After obtaining his medical doctorate, he completed a seven year residency in general surgery at University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital; one of the largest hospitals in the country. Known for an expansive breadth of surgical disease, Dr. Karcutskie’s time at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital exposed him to all facets of surgery, including extensive training in one of the busiest trauma and burn centers in the world. During this time, he spent two dedicated years conducting clinical research in the Division of Trauma, Surgical Critical Care, and Burns and became nationally known for his work on hypercoagulability and prevention of thromboembolism. In those two short, but prolific, years, he amassed over 60 presentations at regional and national meetings, as well as around 30 peer reviewed publications in some of the field’s highest impact journals. His research has brought much understanding into the development of thromboembolism after trauma and has even influenced hospital protocols for preventative measures. Furthermore, Dr. Karcutskie was also involved as a surgical instructor for the United States Army Trauma Training Center in Miami, FL, where he was responsible for assisting Army medical teams with development of strategies for handling mass casualty situations in the battlefield. In addition to this work, he was a first responder physician at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, working with several world-renowned athletes. His success during these 7 years helped earned him a coveted fellowship position with the Department of Plastic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, which is consistently ranked as one of the best plastic surgery training programs in the world.
Working with leaders in the fields of both general and plastic surgery, Dr. Karcutskie has gained a unique training experience that is built for success. He quickly developed an interest in aesthetic surgery and spent his final years of training learning from some of the most well-known aesthetic plastic surgeons in the world. Through these experiences, he has developed his own unique philosophy, approach, and techniques to allow for the best results. He believes that every patient has unique goals, and his focus is to individualize each patient experience to meet those goals.
Dr. Karcutskie’s practice focuses on all aspects of aesthetic surgery, including the face, body, and breasts. He is currently board certified in general surgery, and board eligible in plastic surgery (certification in progress).
Dr. Karcutskie is married to his wife Shireen, a corporate immigration attorney, and they have two sons, Charlie and Jude. He is an avid runner, but his true passion lies with any activity involving his family.
RN, BSN, NE-BC Clinical Administrator
Nancy graduated from Barry University in Miami, Florida. She joined Youthful Images in 1997 as Clinical Administrator, prior to which her background had been in oncology, nurse consulting and hospital administration. She has been a Board Certified Nursing Executive since 1998 and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery Nurses, The CT Association of Ambulatory Surgery Centers/Patient Safety Organization as well as the National Association of Professional Women. Nancy is responsible for patient education, development and implementation of clinical protocols and procedures, as well as being an active member of the operating room team. One of her main roles is overseeing patient care and assisting patients through the surgical process. By answering questions and providing all the necessary information needed to make an informed decision, patients can then determine if plastic surgery is right for them. Every surgical patient meets with Nancy preoperatively, so she can further explain the procedure, review preparation for surgery, as well as what to expect postoperatively. In the operating room, Nancy’s role is to ensure the highest level of care is maintained throughout the surgical process. Her follow-up continues after discharge, where she speaks to every surgical patient the first night after their surgery to answer questions, review postoperative care or just offer reassurance. Patients can feel comfortable contacting Nancy with any questions or concerns they may have regarding their procedure. This attention to patient care is what we feel sets Youthful Images apart from other practices.
