Westlake Wellness Center is in the business of rejuvenating their clients from head to toe. They do this with minimally invasive procedures such as Botox and Dysport that reduce the appearance of brow lines and crow?s feet as well as slimming herbal body wraps. In addition, their service menu includes chemical peels, dermal fillers such as Juv?derm, and European facials.
Dr. Goldring at MDS Medical Spa & Laser Center aims to restore youthful vigor to veneers with medical injections, including Botox, Juv?derm, and Restylane treatments, as well as medical peels and IPL photofacials. The photofacials stimulate visages with laser light energy and aim to banish such pigmented blemishes as acne scars, sun damage, and rosacea. Treatments can take 30?45 minutes, with each laser pulse creating the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin while a sci-fi foley artist provides sound effects. During each Botox session, targeted areas receive an injection of purified protein, which relaxes muscles and smoothes skin that has become furrowed from age or frequent super-soaker duels. Alternatively, Restylane injections achieve similar results with a hyaluronic-acid elixir, and Juv?derm injections fill wrinkled areas around the mouth and nose. Prior to treatment, patients meander past lush outdoor greenery as they pass through the spa's thick wooden doors and into the waiting room, where a sleek reception desk and supple leather chairs keep waiting patrons comfortable. On the walls, bottled body serums add splashes of color to brushed-metal shelves as gleaming frames display feature articles about the spa and lovelorn dating columns written by recently abandoned wrinkles.
At Blue Star Skin Institute, medical professionals and aestheticians beautify bodies with a range of anti-aging treatments. A doctor combats wrinkles with cosmetic injections and dermal fillers such as Juvéderm, and helps boost energy levels with the vitamin B12 and amino acids found in lipotropic injections. Technicians employ lasers to remove hair, diminish spider veins, and rejuvenate skin during IPL photofacials.

Under the guidance of board-certified dermatologists Dr. A. David Rahimi and Dr. Michael Lin, who has appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the licensed aestheticians at Westlake Laser & Aesthetics Medical Group slough off dead skin cells during 30-minute glycolic- or salicylic-acid peels. Aestheticians apply professional Linage serums specially developed by Dr. Lin to reduce fine lines, fight acne, and make visages smoother than a dolphin at a singles bar. Typically, the treatments can improve the appearance of faces, necks, and chests by lightening pigmentation and revealing a healthy, rosy glow. After the resurfacing session, patients can return instantly to work or competitive pole vaulting, as there is no downtime required.
Petra Medi Spa enlists the aid of medical professionals, highly skilled aestheticians, and an arsenal of medical-grade technology to improve appearances with nonsurgical alternatives. Dr. Liliana Cohen?a board-certified neurologist?oversees the efforts of her team members as they provide cutting-edge care intended to fight everything from acne scars to wrinkles.
The center's fractional CO2 resurfacing laser improves skin tone while minimizing the appearance of pigmented blemishes, and the LightSheer cosmetic laser system zaps hair follicles, preventing the hairs from growing back as effectively. Salicylic chemical peels exfoliate the outermost layers of the skin and shrink oversized pores. Injectable dermal fillers?such as Restylane and Juvederm?help fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
Additionally, the center offers chiropractic care and massage therapy for visitors seeking relief from the chronic pains caused by giving piggyback rides to everyone in the grocery-store parking lot.
