Under the guidance of medical director Dr. Irving Restituyo, the staff at Avalon Medical Spa smoothes hirsute skin with laser hair-removal treatments. Patients begin sessions by reclining on cushy tables in private treatment rooms, where they detail their desired results to the resident physician assistant. Next, the medical-grade equipment's brilliant flashes of light bombard patches of fur-like paparazzi chasing a sasquatch, turning hair-sightings into an increasingly rare occurrence. The six treatments are spaced out at four- to six-week intervals, with each session vaporizing the hairs of a different growing cycle to disarm as many follicles as possible. The number of sessions required to remove hair entirely from an area depends on each patient's hair-growth cycle and hair color, with dark hair being the easiest to remove and white the hardest. For particularly stubborn growth, the unlimited-treatment option launches a yearlong offensive of lasers and catchy radio jingles against a single hair stronghold.
Avalon Medical Spa
Medical Director Dr. Irving Restituyo of Avalon Medical Spa oversees a staff of one physician assistant and two registered nurses who draw upon experience in fields ranging from cosmetic surgery to personal training to facilitate their patients' anti-aging and weight-loss goals. Cosmeceutical products by Obagi and Jan Marini fuel traditional facials, and advanced peels and microdermabrasions target signs of age—such as wrinkles and a purse full of hard candies. The majority of Avalon's remaining treatments rely upon injectables or lasers—the latter of which resurfaces skin plagued with excess hair, spider veins, or cellulite. Avalon's staffers carefully smooth wrinkles with Botox or Juvederm, as well as fat deposits with mesotherapy or Lipotherme.
