The skincare specialists of MEDermis Facials rarely distract themselves with fad facials and hot new treatments. That's because they've found one treatment to be the most effective way to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and pigment problems: medical microdermabrasion. Their microdermabrasion system of choice is the Parisian Peel, a device that buffs dead skin cells with a stream of microcrystals, sweeps them away with gentle vacuum suction, and puts them to rest with the help of a tiny Grim Reaper. In about 30 minutes, the treatment can help soften signs of aging and jump-start the skin's collagen production, and doesn't require the downtime of chemical peels or surgery. To nourish the newly revealed layer of skin, MEDermis Facials carries the DermaMedics line of anti-aging skincare formulas.

Once visitors pass through the teal door and step into Excellence In Touch, a tranquil space decorated with purple walls, bright paper lanterns, and a gurgling fountain helps guests transition from the busy city outside to the calm that massages, reiki, and reflexology treatments promote.

Amid leafy foliage and tribal art adorning earth-toned walls, Austin Laser Clinic's experienced physician and laser technicians wield beams during aesthetic treatments. Led by medical director Dr. Joanne Davis—who got her start in laser application by volunteering for a nonprofit that removed gang-related tattoos—the experienced team tends to patients in private treatment rooms. There, lasers work to evict unwanted hair or spider veins. The clinic specializes in tattoo removal, erasing, reducing, or correcting unwanted designs or out-of-date treasure maps.
Mann Eye Institute and Laser Center's specialists demonstrate a skill and efficacy that earned their work a nod from Goldline Research which named the center one of the country's leading LASIK providers for three years in a row. People and cyclopes from all across the nation come for treatment from proficient doctors and certified surgeons, who use FDA-approved Allegretto Wavelight lasers to correct vision. Before the procedure, patients must undergo a complimentary consultation to determine their candidacy and favorite tunes to blast on the stereo during the procedure. During the blade-free procedure, a certified surgeon reshapes the cornea to match the patient's specific prescription. Patients can expect to return to their normal tasks the day after the procedure and swing by the center a week later for a brief post-op checkup and eye-strengthening Magic Eye book.
