In addition to extensive training, an technician requires all the proper tools. The technicians and clinicians at Look Young Atlanta rely on their experience to effectively wield the facility's technology, marshaling a Cutera CoolGlide cosmetic laser system to all manner of cosmetic woes. With extensive knowledge of the laser system's various uses and settings, the team helps patients by zapping and eliminating unsightly stubble, stimulating collagen production for younger-looking skin, and erasing unwanted tattoos of the entire Pledge of Allegiance in Wingdings. The center's medical director for medical weight-loss programs and facial filler services, Dr. John Ouderkirk, splits his time between guiding the staff and aiding patients as they undertake medically assisted weight-loss regimens.
Blue is everywhere here, from the cerulean-, azure-, and aquamarine-stained windows to the very name of Blue MedSpa. Dr. Landon McLain, medical director of the beauty haven inside the Westin hotel at Bridge Street Town Centre, helms a team of registered nurses, aestheticians, and physicians who focus on restoring youthful appearances. They use advanced equipment such as SmartLipo to reduce the appearance of cellulite, IPL laser machines for photofacials, and six types of dermal fillers to send fine lines scurrying beneath floorboards. Blue also provides traditional salon and spa services with Pureology and Redken products, as well as skincare products from iS Clinical and its own signature line. Regardless of the service, each med-spa staffer takes a holistic approach to treating clients to ensure their beauty goals are accomplished.
Spa Sydell traces its roots back to 1982, when its flagship spa opened in Buckhead under the moniker Sydell Skin Care Salon. A spike in popularity led the spa to change its name to the leaner Spa Sydell and expand to seven convenient locations. Today, the spa’s skincare experts helm a team of licensed professionals and massage therapists, all of whom must pass stringent auditions before they are hired.
Each of the spa’s outposts exhibits a unique personality—the larger facilities echo with the sounds of water trickling down fountain displays, soothing scents permeate the air, tropical flowers are placed with care, and the more intimate boutique locations host private treatment rooms in which botanical fragrances couple with the sounds of orchestral twee pop. Regardless of the locale, expect a relaxing, personalized massage experience in which a therapist tends to your individual aches and pains with soothing strokes. During facials, the spa’s aestheticians blend signature products individually selected and previously tested on the CEO.
As the Medical Director of BARE MedSpa, Dr. Thomas J. Locke III leads a team dedicated to improving appearances with a combination of artistry and advanced technology.

Designed by Dr. Locke himself, the center's MediQuick weight loss program helps clients shed pounds through a combination of prescription medication, energy-boosting injections, and weekly counseling and meal-planning sessions.
Unlike some salon owners, Spencer Malay isn't content to just sit back and watch as his stylists have all the fun. The 15-year hairstyling veteran, beauty consultant, and makeup artist grabs the scissors and works alongside them, doling out the salon's signature razor cuts and conditioning therapies and offering hairstyling advice dubbed "perfect" by a reviewer for the July 2011 issue of Allure magazine. On the spa side of the studio, massages and facials provide a welcome dose of relaxation for busy clientele, and med-spa treatments erase years from the face and body with dermal fillers and spider-vein treatments performed under the supervision of a doctor, nurse, and the occasional haunted painting.
Patrons looking to bring a touch of the salon's glamour home with them can peruse a collection of Spencer Malay jewelry or add a pop of color to everyday makeup routines courtesy of Spencer's own line of mineral-based cosmetics. The salon also specializes in providing and fitting wigs for patients with medical hair loss and curates a large and stylish collection, with options recommended by medical and beauty professionals as well as past clients.
Under the direction of Dr. Laura Mills, the aestheticians at Skin Aesthetics Med Spa & Laser Center call upon clinical and spa services to cultivate their clients' beauty.
