Unless they're wizards, people don't restore their youthful looks by casting spells on their skin. Instead, they head to Aesthetica Med Spa, where Dr. David L. Sneed, Sharon M. Sneed, PhD, and their team of skin-care professionals work their own form of magic with services that defy aging. Photofacials, Juvederm injections, and laser skin resurfacing remove years from appearances without erasing those years' memories. Specialists also augment bodily fa?ades with everything from laser tattoo removal to lash tinting and lip augmentation.
At Victory Medical Center, a friendly pharmacy teams up with a shop of natural health helpers and a café filled with wholesome treats. Lined with salads and sandwiches, the café's menu fuels visitors with fruits, veggies, and other healthy eats. Instead of bedazzling diners' slacks, the Fancy Pants salad pairs sweet and savory with a medley of pears, honey-roasted pecans, and gorgonzola cheese ($6.99) . Top a spinachy Strawberry Intent salad with one of eight dressings, such as ranch or poppyseed vinaigrette, or a sprinkling of heartfelt promises ($6.99). Guests can build sandwiches with trios of veggies and a choice of meat and cheese ($3.59 for a small; $6.59 for a large), or team a half-sandwich with a half-salad for an edible lesson on fractions ($6.59).
Dr. Lawrence Broder of Beleza Med Spa began his 16-year career in surgery and primary care, but has shifted his dedication to medical aesthetics, helping people reshape their bodies and evade signs of aging.

Dr. Broder supervises each of Beleza's locations, ensuring that every confidence-boosting injection, augmentation, lift, and peel is done with expertise and professionalism.
Registered nurse Suzette and her staff have years of experience in the skincare industry, but clients at Austin Med Spa tout the staff's diligent and friendly bedside manner as the spa’s best feature.

They offer a range of high-quality med-spa services including light- to medium-depth chemical peels, Botox, and IPL photorejuvenation treatments that help diminish the appearance of age spots, redness, and the fine print that doctors stamp onto all newborns.

Like the juxtaposition of its building's militaristic past as a World War I airplane hangar with the cheery lime-colored walls and babbling fountains of its current renovated state, Urban Laser Spa pairs two seemingly disparate elements. Its staff members not only provide preventative dental care, but they also focus on clients' appearances with medical, spa-quality skin services. Masterminded by partners Dr. Amy Urban and Dr. Raymond Paxton, the spa's common area helps harmonize its two branches of service with a miniature zen garden, local art, and flickering candles. In the dentistry wing, Dr. Urban performs thorough preventative examinations, cleanings, and whitening services in treatment areas flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows and the soothing white noise of tooth-brushing soundtracks. Dr. Paxton's certified aestheticians perform detailed skin analyses before moving onto their treatments, which can include noninvasive laser therapy, microdermabrasion, and line-smoothing injections.
