About Nina Gaetano, BS, PA-C
Multi-Award Winning Bella Sol Med Spa director Nina Gaetano understands that aesthetic treatments can do more than rejuvenate the skin; their procedures have the ability to restore the spirit.
The goal set by Nina was simple, but focused. From the beginning, she wanted to provide the best of aesthetic services, treatments, and non-invasive procedures available to every Bella Sol Med Spa client. In addition, Bella Sol offers a collection of the finest, physician-grade skin care products.
Nina has brought together a talented group of aestheticians and cosmetic professionals; each committed to the practice for their long-term goals, care, and results for each individual patient. All clients have the pleasure of seeing the same welcoming and professional staff members at every visit. Nina and her staff strive to develop a personal relationship with each client, traveling alongside them during their personal aesthetic journey.
Nina is a physician assistant, who for over 16 years, has developed a strong commitment to the detailed protocols and discipline in her field. She recognizes that patients need the comfort of knowing every treatment will have exceptional, consistent results. Nina will always assure that every client is in caring, knowledgeable, and experienced hands.
Nina Gaetano continues to bring patients one-of-a-kind services in a unique professional and upscale setting. Aside from the pampering Bella Sol’s staff provides, they also understand the other thing that clients truly value…their time. While sparing nothing, Bella Sol provides their aesthetic services in the most efficient manner, quickly getting their patients back to their busy lives.
They offer CoolSculpting, which is a revolutionary non-invasive procedure for men and women, developed by Harvard scientists, that freezes fat cells while leaving the overlying skin undamaged. The procedure is FDA-cleared and clinically proven to reduce fat in the treated area up to 20% in just one visit. They use the latest technology to tighten skin in a more natural way with the least invasive procedures. Bella Sol provides cutting edge facials, such as the Vampire Facial, and will introduce hair restoration therapy in the next few months, again leading the field of Med Spas.
Nothing they do at Bella Sol is ever by chance. They continuously strive to meet the highest standards of cosmetic care. Their aestheticians weave together all aspects of beauty, health, and wellness into every treatment for each client. Without patient participation, no treatment plan can be successful. That is why they make it their priority to ensure everyone who walks through their doors feels welcome, secure, and satisfied.
We would like for you to experience Bella Sol’s services for yourself. Schedule a complimentary facial and consultation, or stop by for a quick tour of our state-of-the-art facility.

About Melissa Nguyen
Melissa Nguyen of Amazing Lashes is dedicated to raising the bar on perfection, with lasting beauty and professionalism that can’t be beat. Eyelash extensions bring lots of attention to the eyes and brighten up our faces in a very natural way, which is why women of all ages love them.
Melissa is the proud franchise owner of two locations and takes pride in ensuring that her customers experience genuine, caring, and friendly service every time they come to the studio. Opened by Melissa within three months of each other, the Chino and Brea Studios continue to thrive by offering high-quality lashes. The extensions are soft and lush with a high gloss finish, available in different colors, lengths, thickness, curls, and material – including mink lashes.
The service that Amazing Lash Studio provides is applicable for all women, and often becomes a place where friends, mothers, daughters, and co-workers can pamper themselves and bond. Amazing Lash Studio differs from most other eyelash services in that their service is not the strip-lash that is most associated with eyelash extensions. What they offer are individual synthetic strands that are individually applied to each natural eyelash, one-by-one, resulting in a look and feel that is completely natural. In addition to extensions, Amazing Lash Studio also offers an extensive product line geared toward helping maintain amazing eyelashes, including styling wands, makeup cleansing pads, mascaras, and even a gentle facial wash. Amazing Lash Studio has made it convenient, affordable and easy in stylish and professional settings. Among the benefits of eyelash extensions are the lengthening, darkening and filling effect of the lashes that enhances the eye without mascara, which can smudge and smear throughout a woman’s busy day. The lashes are semi-permanent, so they can even be worn in the shower!
