Stark MD Plastic Surgery Philadelphia and staff
Lori Rogo, Stark Plastic Surgery Philadelphia

Lori Rogo Practice Manager

Lori Rogo is a seasoned professional, with thirteen years of managerial experience in plastic surgery. In years past, and as a top manager in the restaurant industry, Lori learned first and foremost the importance of meeting and exceeding client expectations. Combining outstanding organizational skills with a love of interpersonal interaction, this accomplished veteran thrives on building confidence through the magic of our office’s life-changing procedures.

Lori’s favorite device is the Morpheus8, a magnificent tool that combines micro-needling with radiofrequency technology and produces beautiful skin results by stimulating collagen production. By targeting the deepest layers, clients can actually see the aging process reversing itself with each session. Lori’s favorite procedure is the Mommy Makeover, and she highly recommends Alastin Nectar for those interested in the most radiant skin possible.

Born and raised in Havertown, and now residing in West Chester, Lori enjoys time spent with her teenaged son and the best-dressed Yorkie named Rosie, as well as fireside food, drink and uplifting conversation with close friends. She invites you to visit StarkMD Plastic Surgery in Philadelphia, where customer service is paramount and friendships are lasting.

Stark MD Philadelphia Plastic Surgery Team - Heather Bryant

Heather Bryant Director of Skincare

As a licensed and dedication esthetician for over 17 years, Heather is a powerful and caring woman who brings amazing flair and expertise to her position at StarkMD. Heather’s first foray into esthetics was as a makeup artist, plying her trade and delivering refined and delicate imagery using the magic of her hands. Gratifying people so they can look and feel their best brings this professional great satisfaction, and leaves her with the uplifting sense that she has truly made a visible, palpable and positive difference in the lives of others.

Heather strongly favors the use of the Morpheus8, primarily because it is safe for all skin types and yields improvement for just about every concern. Her procedure of choice is dermaplaning, a revolutionary exfoliating process that specifically addresses a host of skin conditions and leads to exceptional outcomes. Her most liked skincare product of the moment is PCA Vitamin B3. With its high concentration of niacinamide, this supplement has been shown to be effective at treating hyperpigmentation and inflammation, as well as protecting the barrier function of the skin that may have been compromised due to masking. It also allows the skin to retain its own moisture, and is regarded as a potent antioxidant.

Heather wants new patients to know that the goal at StarkMD is to make every patient as comfortable as possible, and to achieve one’s best version of oneself through the best plastic surgery Philidelphia can offer. Outside of work, Heather can be found with her hubby and two beautiful boys doing the mom and wife thing. This native Pennsylvanian hails from the City of Brotherly Love, and completed her BA at Penn State with a degree in Labor Relations and a minor in Dispute Management. She is a licensed medical esthetician in Pennsylvania, and looks forward to welcoming you to StarkMD and providing you with magnificent results.

Lauren Jernstrom, StarkMD Plastic Surgery Philadelphia

Lauren Jernstrom NP-C, Clinical Nurse

Lauren Jernstrom, the office dynamo, has vast and far-reaching experience in the world of health and medicine. Before arriving on the scene and making a big splash as our new clinical nurse, Lauren worked as medical assistant in primary/urgent care and dermatology for two years prior to finishing nursing school, then went on to extern on a Jefferson’s stroke unit. She knew from the start that esthetics was her chosen field, and was very fortunate to begin with Dr. Stark in the Fall of 2020 after finishing her nurse practitioner program at Thomas Jefferson University.

As a veteran 11th grade biology teacher, Lauren became intrigued long ago at the marvels of the human body, and found her calling when she discovered that her gift for the intricacies of cosmetic medicine could reinvigorate others with the confidence often lost to time and the aging process. This experienced and caring professional considers herself a “girly girl,” young at heart, and at the ready to assist others in rediscovering youth and beauty.

Lauren throws herself into her work and derives tremendous pleasure from offering her clients superb outcomes. Her favorite device, by far, is the Broadband Laser light (BBL), and takes great pride in watching as red and brown age spots magically disappear in short order. Lauren is also a huge fan of injectables such as Botox and filler, bringing a refreshing look to her clients’ rapidly improving features. She’s a fan of general, high-quality skin care and strongly supports those who look after their bodies in the same way they would any precious belonging.

Lauren loves the “small practice with a big heart” energy of StarkMD, and truly hopes to satisfy the needs of all in her charge. When not at the office, she obsesses over her Peloton bike, and explores new restaurants with her fiancé. Originally from Pittsburgh, Lauren is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh and is a diehard Steelers fan. She welcomes you to our office and looks forward to providing excellent service.

Jill Murphy, Stark MD Plastic Surgery Philadelphia

Jill Murphy NP-C, Aesthetic Nurse Injector

With fifteen years in the world of medical esthetics under her belt, and having worked with expert dermatologists, plastic surgeons, nurse injectors and estheticians from coast to coast, Jill Murphy brings a wealth of talent and a host of experience to StarkMD.

Prior to completing her Master’s degree in Nursing in 2006, and thereafter engaging in her chosen profession, Jill successfully assisted top doctors in a number of surgical and cardiac ICU units, honing her skills and preparing for the job she loves most: working as a nurse injector and bringing both artistry to the skin and huge smiles to the faces of satisfied patients.

Additional Reading

Jill’s favorite device is the Morpheus8. She feels its accuracy and ease of use produce an overall natural effect and brings out the best in even the most intransigent cases. A minimalist at heart, Jill also highly recommends Botox for quick and dramatic confidence repair, and can also advise as to several helpful skincare products that will leave clients feeling youthful and relaxed. She is a team player, adding her special flair to StarkMD’s comprehensive approach to all things aesthetic.

You’ll find Jill spending weekends on the sidelines, making sure that her three boys excel at soccer, basketball, lacrosse or baseball. As a Malvern, PA native, she is used to spending summers at the Jersey Shore, and along with her former Navy pilot husband, loves traveling the US looking for adventure, then settling back down into the great family community of Ardmore. Jill graduated from Georgetown University with a Bachelor’s in Nursing, and holds a Master’s in Nursing from the University of San Diego. She looks forward to your visit to StarkMD, and to assisting you in achieving your highest aesthetic goals.

Arin Kahan, Stark MD Philadelphia Plastic Surgery

Arin Kahan Licensed Medical Aesthetician

Arin has been carefully and thoughtfully practicing Medical Esthetics for over seven years. To say that Arin “practices” does not do justice to her passion and absolute commitment to her expertise. She is fervent about skincare and devoted to her clients.

Arin earned her bachelor's degree in sociology from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. During Arin's extensive training she has been mentored by world-renowned skincare experts such as Dr. Glen Crawford and Tirzah Blair. She grew up in Bala Cynwyd so is very excited to bring what she has learned back to her hometown area.

Arin's vast training paired with her magnetic personality set her apart from other practitioners. Her caring nature is evident in her day-to-day interactions with everyone she meets. She is methodical about how she prescribes skincare routines which are tailored to each of her clients' individual needs. Through these outstanding qualities, she is able to curate skincare journeys for her patients, helping them achieve their desired results and find their most confident and glowing selves.

Additional Reading

Arin has a broad skill set but one of her favorite specialties is dermaplaning. Not only is she highly skilled in performing this procedure but she also frequently trains others in dermaplaning and has been recognized as one of the country's leading trainers in this specialized skill. She has been broadly trained in chemical peels, is an expert when it comes to lasers & enjoys skin resurfacing treatments including Halo, Clear & Brilliant and radio-frequency microneedling. The trends in the skincare field are a moving target: with all the cutting edge research and technology advancements, options and best practices continue to change. Arin is on a continuous career journey to keep up-to-date by attending conferences and traveling to learn from the country's finest instructors.

When Arin isn’t in the treatment room, she enjoys her passion in wellness in other ways - you can find her at her local farmers market, enjoying yoga or going for a run along the Schuylkill River, with sunblock and hat on of course!
