Amerejuve MedSpa & Cosmetic Surgery boasts 10 Houston-area locations, each decked out with state-of-the-art facilities, designed to help clients look and feel their best. Amerejuve offers medspa services such as laser hair removal, an increasingly popular way to give up waxing and shaving for good using technology that is suitable for all skin tones. Clients can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks and moderate skin color and smoothness with eMatrix, as well as slim physiques, reduce cellulite, and smooth skin with VelaShape. VASER Shape, Zerona, and CoolSculpting also assist in contouring bodies, while visages are smoothed through microdermabrasions and PhotoFacials. Amerejuve also offers injectables such as Botox, and clients can complete looks by with the store's bevy of skincare products.
Additionally, Amerejuve boasts board-certified plastic surgeons, with expertise in an array of cosmetic treatments such as face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and breast augmentation, the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure offered.
Helmed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lucian Rivela, Rivela Plastic Surgery deploys a team of adroit medical aestheticians dedicated to beautifying each patient with the latest in skincare treatments. During the 30-minute VI Peel, skin-refiners use a combination of chemicals including Retin-a, Phenol, and the antioxidant vitamin C to improve skin tone and texture and strip away stubborn dermal cells conspiring to inflict acne, age spots, conspicuously unadorable freckles, and more upon innocent visages. The 45-minute HydraFacial works on multiple fronts to rejuvenate faces distressed by over-emoting and napping on sandpaper pillows. A vacuum-based skin abrasion tip extracts pesky impurities, and a gauntlet of active serums deep-clean, exfoliate, and infuse multiple layers of parched skin with blissful hydration, leaving behind a crack team of government-trained oxidant-fighters.
Michelle Galdenzi knows both sides of the beauty industry. As a teen, she won the Miss Teen Texas crown. More recently, she's spent time in makeup chairs for her acting roles in Entourage and Tina Fey and Steve Carrell's Date Night. When Michelle isn't performing, she's working as a medical aesthetician at ZSpa. Here, her artful injections of Botox, Juvéderm, and Radiesse rejuvenate aging faces, minimizing wrinkles and plumping sagging skin. Galdenzi minimizes post-treatment swelling with the cutting-edge cannula technique, rather than by requiring clients to bury their faces in Arctic streams.
Dr. Iman Al-Haj, owner and medical director of Feel and Live Better Medical Spa, followed a fascination with the human body across the Atlantic Ocean—she obtained her board certification in general surgery in the United Kingdom, then headed to the US to hone her skills in Houston. Now Dr. Al-Haj, along with a team of nutritionists and aestheticians, puts her knowledge to use by renovating façades with cosmetic procedures and improving health with nutritional wellness services. Along with hydrating facials and vitamin-infused masks, the team amps up looks with dermal fillers, hair transplants, and laser therapies. One such therapy is Cynosure SmartSkin technology, which is designed to blast away sun damage, smooth wrinkles, and eternally banish acne scars to high-school-yearbook photos. The staff also helps maintain clients' youthful complexions with Youngblood mineral makeup, Dermalogica and Jan Marini products, and the spa's own skincare line.
At Dermagenix Medical Spa, Dr. H. Kim Vo and her team of nurses and medical aestheticians rejuvenate their patients' skin the same way they would their own. "Every morning," Vo explains to Total Body Magazine, "I put on Dermagenix SPF 24." Her faith in the Dermagenix line doesn't stop there. "I exfoliate with Dermagenix foaming facial refiner," she continues. "At night, I use Dermagenix oil-free hydrating fluid."
An anti-aging specialist who personally uses their own products is a strong endorsement, and Dr. Vo and her staff further ensure that each treatment is carried out with care by beginning each one with a complimentary consultation. Whether it’s laser hair removal, a chemical peel, or an IPL photofacial, one of the onsite physicians or Vo herself oversees each procedure.
