Dr. Helen Pensanti

-Medical Director

Dr Helen Pensanti MD started her career by opening a private Medical Practice right here in Orange County! While Women’s Health Care was the underlying theme of the office she saw all types of primary care cases. Dr Pensanti has always been interested in maximizing healing capabilities while feeling and looking your personal best. Within the first few years she spent extensive time researching and formulating Natural Hormones for women with PMS, Perimenopause, Menopause and Osteoporosis. Later the practice evolved into healing with peptides, IV drips, natural remedies and vitamins to become our “Birth Right Health & Weight” (ideal body composition based on our genetics, height & muscle mass). We can’t leave out mental sharpness, healthy skin and just plain feeling good! Dr Helen has worked both coasts from Maryland to California, from Primary Care to Urgent Care. In additional to being Vanity Compounds Medical Director with particular focus on our Aesthetic Treatments and Wellness options, Dr Helen still contributes primary practice hours part time. Last but certainly not least, she gave birth to two daughters and one son and they along with her grandchildren bring great joy to her life!
