She has maintained her privileges at Carolina East Medical Center for 30 years and has committed herself to serving her community in Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Cardiology.

Introducing your 2024 Cartessa Best in Aesthetics Laser Queen
Embark on an exciting journey with Aleta Sloan, PA-C, from United Medical and Aesthetics, as she graces Cartessa's 2024 Best in Aesthetics Tour. Discover her invaluable insights on starting a successful med spa and prioritizing value over price. Join her at the Umstead on March 23 for a captivating exploration of laser techniques and skin enhancement.

Good morning, everybody. I’ve got exciting news that I’ve been waiting to share. I’ve been asked to speak for Cartessa for 2024 in the tour called The Best in Aesthetics. I’ve been queened the laser queen, which sometimes you can’t pick what you’re queened as, but you are what you are. So, I have to say that I love that name. I do a lot of other things, but lasers are clearly, and skin quality, I think brings most beauty to anyone regardless of wrinkles and saggy skin. If you’ve got good quality skin, that’s the best. Being queened the Laser Queen, I’ve been asked by Cartessa, which I’m super flattered to be part of their 2024 Best in Aesthetics Tour, and we’re going to be speaking first in Raleigh, March 23rd at the Umstead. So, mark that on your calendars. I’m going to be speaking about how to start at a successful med spa and base your packages and practice on value, not beating down to the lowest price. You have to base your practice or your services on value, so you can’t be compared to anybody else. So, I talked about strategies about how to do that and a little bit of laser stuff in there. So, thank you Cartessa, that I couldn’t be more excited and I’m looking forward to 2024 traveling across the country, speaking about the best thing I love lasers and skin quality. Bye!

Lisa Price - Aesthetician/laser Technician



Lisa joined UM&A in 2024 after spending 10 years working in a plastic surgeon’s office in Richmond, VA, where she administered chemical peels of varying depths, many types of laser treatments (including IPL), a multitude of laser resurfacing procedures, laser hair removal, microneedling RF treatments, and more.

She trained at the Institute of Advanced Medical Aesthetics and then received her Master Aesthetics Licensure at American Spirit Institute focusing on anti-aging and improving the quality and texture of the skin. She is well-versed in the layers of the skin, skin conditions, product ingredients, and how those ingredients work in the skin. Lisa is familiar with working on skin of color.

Lisa graduated from UNCW with a Bachelor’s in English and spent 11 years teaching but found her way into this industry and fell in love with being able to manipulate the skin into behaving with quality products and specialized skin care plans for each individual client.

Outside of work, Lisa loves spending time with family and friends, going to dinner, and seeing live music. She loves being near the water, so enjoying beach time year-round is part of what Lisa loves about being back in Wilmington.
