AEGIS

Her dedication to total health and wellness motivated her to further develop her education by completing a fellowship at the American Academy of Anti- Aging Medicine and create a model that delivers the philosophy to benefit people positively. This inspired the creation of AEGIS, a pro-aging skin care and supplement line to enhance the quality of life and support self improvement.

Family 

Dr. Plaskos has a strong belief in family and the importance of enjoying the pleasures in life.  Her Greek ancestors taught her to work hard, be positive and grateful for every challenge, and to love everyone.  She firmly believes that we have to balance science with the mystery of life in order to age well and gracefully.

Dr. Plaskos personally invites you to explore the results of AEGIS and discover self-love and pro-aging.  

AEGIS MORE THAN SKIN DEEP

As defined in Greek, AEGIS translates to “protection”.  Dr. Plaskos feels that a sense of protection is important to achieving well-being.  When people feel protected against our modern environment, such as the potentially damaging affects of the sun’s rays, or on a deeper emotional level - from self doubt, they become empowered, their self esteem is elevated and they feel better.  AEGIS is a pro-aging system that addresses everything from the inside to the out.  She has created a high quality skin care and supplement line to enhance the quality of life and support self improvement.  The desired result is for everyone to participate and ignite their well-being!
