Dr. Frederick T. Work, Jr. expertly improves bodies with aesthetic and reconstructive procedures in his ambulatory-surgery center. As both surgeon and medical director of Atlanta Center for Breast & Aesthetic Surgery LLC, Dr. Work nips, tucks, and rebuilds elements of the anatomy from head to toe, and also specializes in preventing and treating keloid scarring on patients with dark skin tones.
Dr. Work doesn't just tend to the aesthetic needs of Atlantans—he also volunteers his time and skills fixing the physical imperfections of children in Mexico, Kenya, Honduras, and the Marshall Islands.
4Ever Young Aesthetics & Wellness wants to make something clear: it's not a med spa. Rather, it is a medical practice that specializes in wellness and aesthetic services. Along with cosmetic surgeries, such as liposuction, the practice offers laser treatments and aesthetic services, such as medical-grade chemical peels, Botox, and spider-vein removal treatments. A board-certified physician is always in to answer patient questions.
Like a gym, Meant Spa & Lounge wants to help clients slim down. But unlike a gym, which is full of clattering machines, shouting trainers, and people hiding inside lockers, Meant takes a more gentle, laid-back approach to weight loss. Physician-supervised staff administer PhotoSlim Lipo treatments, which rely on a FDA-approved noninvasive red light to shrink fat cells and combat cellulite, lie back and relax while a technician holds the red light over problem areas. Clients can even sip gourmet tea to help them unwind before each treatment. The treatments themselves are non-invasive, and no downtime is required.
When it's not slimming bodies, Meant's high-intensity red light provides nonsurgical face lifts. It boosts collagen production and tightens skin, resulting in fewer wrinkles and slimmer jaw lines and necks.
A former nightclub, Club Kiss Salon & Spa still works hard to entertain its guests: they can drink virgin daiquiris, smoke hookahs, and watch live shows as well as getting beauty services. At the sleek, black bar with a white chandelier overhead, guests sip on virgin cocktails as staffers tend to nails. Exposed brick walls are now flanked with a row of white-framed mirrors for guests to admire new hairstyles thanks to cuts, weaves, and other styles. The salon also sells imported virgin hair—high-quality strands that keep the cuticle intact—for use in hair extensions and weaves.
From general medicine and chiropractic treatments to testing services and physical therapy, Wellness Plus Clinic covers every base of its clients' well-being. Perhaps this is why so many programs there seem to have multiple facets. The medically supervised weight-loss programs help patients shed unwanted pounds with services such as meal plans, hCG or B12 injections, and counseling. Chiropractic regimens work in tandem with pain-management plans to ease chronic pain. The doctors also rehabilitate people after car wrecks, sports injuries, and slap fights with the governor. In addition to its health-related services, the clinic handles such medical-aesthetics procedures as Latisse, cosmetic injections?such as Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane?and skin cryo treatments. Wellness Plus Clinic accepts Major Medical Insurance plans for most of their services.
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.
