About

About Us

Our providers are board-certified doctors and physician assistants, as well as fellows of the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. With over twenty years of experience, we’ve built a medical family we are proud of, with continued emphasis on education, cutting-edge technologies, and techniques in the field of cosmetic dermatology.

Our Founder

Raised in County Wicklow, Ireland, Anna Magee grew up surrounded by mountains, coastline, and paramedicine, serving the community as an assistant in her family’s pharmacy. She discovered the specialty of dermatology as a medical student in Charleston, South Carolina, inspired by memorable professors and the gratifying visual component of the field.

Residencies, career, and life brought Anna to Dallas, then Charlottesville, where she took to the landscape, the recreation, and the arts, choosing this community to plant her roots, raise a son, and begin her private practice in 1994.

Our Philosophy

We value the trust and longevity of patient relationships. Our providers hold themselves accountable to the highest standards of medical safety and efficacy in rejuvenation and graceful aging techniques. We are committed to quality care and attention to detail at every turn. Honesty is important to us, as is a well-trained and supportive staff. We carry out our tailored treatments with thought and precision. We want you to leave Nua feeling refreshed, restored, comfortable, and confident – the best version of yourself.

The Meaning Of Nua

“Nua” is derived from the Old Irish “núa,” meaning new, fresh, recent, or novel. It is a reflection of our mission to inspire comfort and confidence through renewal and rejuvenation services, while paying homage to Dr. Magee’s heritage.

Private Consultations

We listen to you, our patients. We provide customized care to meet your needs and goals, and a private consultation is the first step in the collaborative relationship between you and our staff. Each consultation is a 1-on-1 with your provider where you can sit down to discuss your concerns, goals, options, and the details of our services. You can trust us to be honest and to provide you realistic and reasonable expected outcomes. Your health and safety is paramount, and we know we have to earn your confidence. You are trusting us with your face and your body, and we take that very seriously.

Occasional same-day services may be available. Any fee spent on a private consultation is applied to the cost of treatment.
