Medical director and board-certified surgeon Dr. Chow leads La Bella Laser & Slimming's staff in traditional spa treatments as well as modern medical aesthetics, such as noninvasive Zerona laser body slimming. Dr. Chow's extensive educational background and prestigious fellowship experience have led him to become an expert in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well. To accentuate the tastefully appointed studio's relaxing atmosphere, La Bella's team serves clients cups of house tea, fruit plates, and $100 bills to use as napkins.
Dr. Fauzia Khan has spent more than half of her 20 years in the medical field steeped in the world of cosmetic facial enhancement. A board-certified physician, she draws on both her medical and artistic side when performing cosmetic procedures. She also stays attuned to emerging technologies. Radio frequencies combined with pulsed-light technology—as seen on the Rachael Ray Show and other national outlets—tightens the face so it’s less likely to fall off, and FDA-approved lasers remove hair and rejuvenate skin across the body. When lasers aren’t the best solution for skin reconditioning, Vibraderm microdermabrasion wands speed up the exfoliation process through vibrating, single-use paddles that also stimulate circulation. Alternatively, injectables such as Botox, Dysport, and Restylane reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the face.
The therapists at Beauty Culture have imported spa treatments and technologies from Europe, which they use to pamper their clients from head to toe. Skin and body treatments leave bodies scrubbed and nourished, while non-invasive slimming treatments send fat on a one-way trip to Narnia. Tea, snacks, and soothing music add to the full-sensory comfort of each visit to this relaxing spa.
For more than two decades, licensed electrologist Andrea Dubin has put a permanent stop to unwanted hair growth without wax strips or lasers. She and her staff use electrolysis—a method of hair removal that uses a thin probe to distribute shortwave radio frequencies to permanently inhibit hair growth on the chosen area. Electrolysis is currently the only permanent hair removal treatment that is recognized by the FDA. Before each procedure, Andrea meets with clients during a complimentary consultation and advises them on treatment regimens.
When clients come to Plush Derma Laser Clinic with fuzzy legs or stubbled chests, technicians zap offending follicles at the root with the LightSheer Duet laser. This modern medspa procedure tends to yield longer lasting results than shaving or waxing and does not require topical anesthetics beforehand or cooling bags of frozen peas afterward. The staff here also offers photofacials for the face, neck, chest, or hands and Ultherapy ultrasound lifting treatments.
Body Sculpt Wraps are designed to spot-reduce bulges by sending toxins on a one-way trip out through the lymphatic system. By targeting trouble spots with non-invasive radio energy, technicians are able to break up the toxins and fats that populate the adipose cells' overstuffed walls. Then, the wrap's herbal and enzyme solution penetrate the outer layers of skin, drawing out the excess cellular gunk and flushing it from the area with the body's own lymphatic system. When combined with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, these detoxifying treatments can help melt away inches and form a firmer physique.
