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. He continues to build on his surgical knowledge with coursework and bihourly games of Operation, and has slimmed more than 500 physiques with laser-driven SmartLipo and smoothed hundreds of complexions with DOT (dermal optical thermolysis) resurfacing treatments. Dr. Broder supervises each of Beleza's locations, ensuring that every confidence-boosting injection, augmentation, lift, and peel is done with expertise and professionalism.
Led by owner Christine Crownover, the team can enhance clients’ natural beauty with a slew of treatments that include noninvasive procedures such as chemical peels, laser hair removal, and laser facial treatments that harness the power of GentleLase, Aura, and YAG lasers. The medical aestheticians also use medical-grade therapeutic products from brands such as Neocutis, glo minerals, and Vivant.
In cosmetology school, MieleDolce founder Luis Iturralde let his fellow students wax him for a class demonstration. His allergic reaction to the chemical wax made it a demonstration of more than proper waxing technique; his brief modeling gig also showed the importance of beauty treatments that avoid irritating skin. Iturralde carried this lesson to his spa, MieleDolce, where the staff sidestep chemical waxes in favor of threading or electrolysis.
The center’s specialty, however, consists of extending hair: its semipermanent silk and mink lash extensions come in a variety of lengths and curvatures, and technicians ensure a natural look by attaching them hair by hair. Additional services range from slimming body wraps infused with aloe vera and herbs to micro skin needling, an anti-aging treatment that can combat wrinkles, scarring, and signs of playing rugby in a crawlspace.
Supervised by Dr. Daniel Leeman, New U Plastic Surgery's cadre of medical aestheticians individualizes spa and medical treatments to boost beauty inside and out. Staff members welcome clients into their boutique-style office for a complimentary consultation before every service. After the consultation, they customize body-contouring and nutrition programs to address individual health history, meet wellness goals, and simplify escapes through doggy doors. FirstLine Therapy emphasizes what foods one should commonly eat, and the hCG weight-loss program safely couples a specialized menu with hormonal supplements. Aestheticians also craft spa and medical facials from an array of SkinCeuticals products tailored to individual skin types. New U Plastic Surgery offers surgical and non-surgical procedures to help results. For those not ready for plastic surgery, New U offers non-invasive procedures as well.
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.
The laser technicians at Novopelle rid physiques of unwanted hair using Candela GentleLase or GentleYAG lasers, which have been proven safe for all skin types. To further their commitment to skin, they also revitalize faces with facials, peels, and rejuvenation treatments. In addition, they administer lipotropic and hormone injections as well as capsules and topical lotions to aid in weight loss.
