In addition to their bread-and-butter treatment, the med spa undoes the malicious work of genetics and environmental factors with sublative skin rejuvenation, a 20-minute facial treatment that uses laser light to help decrease the signs of sun damage and pigment irregularities.

Dr. Tom Haas might be the one examining clients at Imaage Cosmetic Surgery Center, but there’s a chance they might recognize his face as well. The board-certified plastic surgeon has made multiple television appearances, been featured in numerous magazine articles, and offered advice in several educational cosmetic surgery videos. Readers of LEO Weekly named Dr. Haas the area’s best plastic surgeon in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and the center also earned the publication's best spa award in 2011. The state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery suite puts client satisfaction first, offering a discrete exit for patient privacy and a comfortable waiting area for loved ones. Most procedures can be performed under Twilight anesthesia, which reduces undesirable side effects such as grogginess and mid-session snoring. The center's registered nurse and licensed aestheticians also perform a variety of nonsurgical services, including laser facial treatments, peels, and body-contouring VelaShape sessions.
