After his residency at Albany Medical College, medical director Dr. David LaMond decided to continue his love for teaching by making patient education one of the core principles of Blue Sky MD's approach to total patient care. That's why Dr. LaMond and his team of physicians combine in-depth consultations, online resources, and medical vocabulary quizzes with their services, ensuring that patients undergoing supervised weight-loss treatments understand the results of body-composition analyses and how custom exercise and nutrition regimens work.
Blue Sky MD also follows the idea that overall well-being is not only about being physically healthy but also about being emotionally healthy. Thus, counselors work side by side with physicians and liberally compliment patients on the shininess of their shoes. The clinic further helps patients feel good about themselves by offering aesthetic services, such as chemical peels, beauty injections, noninvasive body contouring, and laser skin treatments.
At Skin Spa Asheville, aestheticians utilize natural ingredients to offer soothing, noninvasive treatments that can correct skin issues and leave clients feeling beautiful and pampered. Treatments include a full slate of facials, including options that cleanse pores and attempt to work against the effects of aging. The spa also offers a variety of body-care treatments, such as wraps and waxing.
Alicia Jenkins turned to chemical peels to try and reverse sun damage and other dermal issues. The results wowed Alicia, and in turn she left a 14-year tenure as a respiratory-care practitioner to become an aesthetician. She has certifications in a wide range of services, including PCA Skin, microdermabrasion, GloMinerals, and Obagi Skincare. Her treatments are customized to diminish fine line, blast through acne, and dig out dirt and confetti from pores.
Rebecca Baumann is a licensed massage and bodywork therapist and aesthetician. Her massages focus on stress and pain management, with helpful tools that include warm towels, mexican jumping beans, and heated stones. Her body wraps, which pull double duty calming muscles and boosting circulation, are crafted from lavender, shea butter, and bentonite clay. Facials for sensitive or blemished skin round out the menu of services at Grateful Zen, located inside the Brevard Health and Racquet Club.
Each year, skincare company Rhonda Allison sponsors a 90-day Face-Off Competition, which awards the aesthetician who makes the most drastic improvements on a patient's skin. In 2006, aesthetician Helene won first place by using a series of peels and Acculift facial-toning sessions. She employs those same award-winning techniques at her skincare studio, Youthful Solutions by Helene. Additionally, she offers facials, microphototherapy, and Pressotherapy, a cellulite-removal technique that was honed by printing-press inventor Johannes Gutenberg.
The physicians at Greenville Health System Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics are dedicated to enhancing their clients' natural beauty with skincare solutions, injectable treatments, and cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Under the expertise of licensed medical aesthetician Jordan Klaff, the center's staff revitalizes skin surfaces with facials and chemical peels using high-quality, medical-grade skin care products to help clients confidently lounge at the beach or streak at a local sporting event.
