In 2002, the Austin Chronicle named Vickmay Skin and Body Spa the "Best Place to Fight the Ravages of Time" on its annual "Best of Austin" list. Three years later, the paper was still singing the praises of Vickmay's "magical treatments." It's fitting that a spa known for seemingly stopping aging in its tracks maintains a record of unchanging client satisfaction.
That focus on excellence is demonstrated in all of Vickmay's treatments, which range from advanced anti-aging therapies to more traditional spa procedures. Botox injections relax frown lines, while the light-based technologies of Laser Genesis and Cutera systems address uneven complexions, tighten lax skin, or reduce hair growth. But the haven also stays true to its spa moniker, offering indulgent services such as aromatherapy massages and champagne facials.
At Dr. Steven E. Zimmet's namesake skin center, the physician leads a talented staff of technicians in freeing clients of unwanted veins, blemishes, and inches. Dr. Zimmet and his dermatologist partners acquaint first-timers with their practice by performing thorough consultations, which help the doctors recommend a course of treatment from among their laser and spa treatments. The menu of services strives to represent the meeting point of science and aesthetics— SkinCeuticals products harness anti-aging technology to build custom facials and peels, and therapeutic light, ultrasound, and an old Rocky motion-picture soundtrack come together to fight unwanted fat or veins without requiring invasive procedures.
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. Staff members reserve ample time to listen to a client’s concerns and clearly explain all the treatment options and projected results before beginning any procedure. 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. Surrounded by gently swaying trees and lush bushes, the awninged front entrance ushers guests into a tropical oasis adorned with bamboo window shades and soft suede couches
Before Toccare Medical Spa existed, its board-certified ophthalmologists performed cosmetic and reconstructive facial surgeries at a practice called Texas Oculoplastic Consultations, next to an ambulatory surgery center. So pleased were patients with their level of care, they demanded that TOC's staff expand into the skincare field. This suggestion gained momentum and manifested in TOC Aesthetic Skin Care which, over the following 10 years, evolved into Toccare Medical Spa. Today, TOC, the surgery center, and Toccare Medical Spa sit side-by-side. At the latter, the doctors oversee treatments such as clinical facials, peels, and dermal fillers that don't require going under the knife.
