About Ahava Medispa
Established in 2014, Ahava Medispa’s founder Dr. Ron Israeli quickly realized the potential and power of the medical spa concept – bringing medically supervised skin health treatments into a luxury spa environment with a passion for customer service. Determined to establish and grow this new category, Ahava is now the premiere Medical Spa in New Jersey and the only one featuring Ultherapy.
Dr. Israeli was raised in New York, and attended Stuyvesant High School in NYC. He received a B.A. in biology from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. While at Hopkins, Dr. Israeli published extensively on interferons, which are naturally-occurring cancer fighting molecules. Dr. Israeli received his medical degree from SUNY Health Sciences Center at Stony Brook and then spent several years training in general surgery at SUNY Health Sciences Center at Brooklyn.
Following his surgery residency, he received a two-year special research fellowship award from the National Cancer Institute and spent that time working on prostate cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. While at Memorial, Dr. Israeli identified and cloned the gene for a new prostate specific antigen and developed several exquisitely sensitive prostate cancer detection tests. He has published and lectured extensively on his discoveries and has been awarded numerous national awards for his work, including the prestigious first prize in clinical research from the American Urological Association in 1994. To date, Dr. Israeli has amassed over 55 papers and major abstracts.
Dr Israeli has continued to be a market leader in aesthetics in New Jersey and New York and leads the nation in treatments performed, safety, and efficacy. Dedicated to our clients, Ahava Medispa prides itself on helping people find their inner beauty – so they can look better, feel better, be better.
