My name is Dr. Melissa Teixeira-Palmer (a.k.a. MelCV, Mel Tex, Mel). 

I am an AANP board certified Family Nurse Practitioner born and raised in Massachusetts by two amazing Cape Verdean immigrant parents, alongside my sister and two brothers. I received my second Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the University of Massachusetts Boston in 2015, as well as my Masters in Nursing in 2018 and Doctorate of Nursing Practice in 2021 from UMASS.

Prior to working in aesthetics, I worked as a registered nurse for over a decade in various healthcare settings. I continue to work in aesthetics, regenerative medicine, health & wellness and continue to expand my skillset. I have a passion for helping others and giving my patients guidance and support to strive for the best quality of life, while feeling and looking great in the process.

I am a very easy-going person, who loves to smile and bring my sense of humor along to make anyone instantly at ease in my hands. When I am not busy at the office, I love to attend church, participate in outreach, catch up with family and friends, watch movies, travel, shop, and try new foods and activities.

I entered the medical beauty and health industry to procedurally help people get healthy, have youthful appearances and learn how to keep it that way. I fell in love with using my hands to help transform what is already beautiful into astounding. My eye for detail and desire to see results and happy clients is what keeps me striving to learn more and do more. I have a passion for helping others and giving my clients all the guidance, support and outward form to strive to be forever blessed and fabulous! So….what are you waiting for? Reach out to me, I'm waiting for you!
