The licensed medical professionals and technicians at Venus Tan and Spa iron out wrinkles and unearth fresher, younger skin with sophisticated facial treatments. Nurse-administered Botox injections flatten out facial furrows by freezing muscles and tightening up the hard-to-reach screws behind the ears. Smoothed-out results appear within three to seven days after the 10- to 15-minute procedure and can last up to four months. Beauty mavens can follow up the treatment with a half-hour diamond microdermabrasion to draw back the face’s dull curtains of dead skin, or tighten up sagging spots and recharge cheek-stored smile batteries with the gentle FDA-approved electric pulses of a 45-minute microcurrent facial.
Dr. Martin Basaldua and the seasoned staff at Optimal Skin and Laser Center remedy veneer vexations during photofacial treatments. Harnessing the gentle beams of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, photofacial sessions target irregular complexions, spots, and wrinkles that stem from a variety of sources, including sun damage, rosacea, and chafing from fiberglass pillows. As precise doses of energy burst through epidermal surfaces, stimulated collagen production works to return smooth, youthful tones to furrowed mugs. Dramatic results can be achieved after one session, though most patients require four to five treatments. Photofacials produce minimal postprocedure discomfort and recovery time, allowing recipients to quickly return to everyday duties, such as cheering on the mailman.
Led by Yale graduate Dr. Young Cho, Integrated Plastic Surgery’s team of aesthetic augmenters mold bodies into sleek new frames with FDA-approved Zeltiq contouring technology. During the appointment, a trained professional wields a chilly wand that sends a wave of cold temperature to overfed cells in a targeted attempt to shrink and flush fat from the body. The noninvasive treatment may exorcise the ghosts of lasagnas past from the lower abdomen ($1,500), love handles, lower or mid back, upper arms, or thighs ($600+/side; $1,200+ total). Patients may experience slight discomfort during the procedure, but like the embarrassment of calling your teacher "grandpa," the feeling usually fades within the first 10 minutes. The anesthesia-free session generally results in no downtime, allowing patients to return to normal activities right away. Zeltiq is ideal for patients within 10–15 lbs. of their healthy weight and for individuals who have maintained a stable weight with no dramatic weight loss over the past six months.
Dr. Frank Ponce III and Sleek Laser & Skin Center’s medical aestheticians work to bridge the gap between day spas and doctor’s offices with high-tech treatments and a tranquil atmosphere. Services, such as anti-wrinkle fillers, laser peels, and hair removal, help improve skin’s appearance and reduce signs of aging, and advanced facial services, such as microdermabrasions and peels, smooth visages.
Dr. Mary Katherine Henson earned her Bachelor of Science degree from the Texas Woman's University. After working in a variety of hospitals and after completing medical school, she now works as the head of Elite Medical Skin & Laser Center, where she supervises a team of highly trained technicians as they wield microcrystals, lasers, and gentle chemical solutions in the quest to boost beauty. The center partners with glo therapeutics, whose pharmaceutical-grade products power services that can be adapted to treat such common skin problems as lack of hydration and excess coal-mine soot. These kisser polishings take place in sunny yellow treatment rooms, where technicians also target fat cells with the vacuum-assisted radiofrequency of Elite body contouring and attack pesky hair follicles and spider veins with blasts from a laser.
