Dan Schildgen, owner and general manager of Calista Skin & Laser Center, has put together a skilled team of medical professionals that specializes in nonsurgical aesthetic treatments. Medical director Ann Nolen, DO, is not only board certified in both family-practice and regenerative medicine, but also a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. Dr. Nolen oversees the work of a certified senior laser technician with more than 15 years of experience, a registered nurse who helps people reach their weight-loss goals, and a highly trained laser-tattoo-removal expert who erases evidence of past fascinations with unicorns.
Aside from its knowledgeable beauty mavens, the center sets itself apart with some of the most advanced technology available. The eMax system's elōs technology combines bipolar radiofrequency, light, and diode-laser energies to target wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and unwanted hair. The eMatrix sublative rejuvenation system addresses acne scars and lesions, whereas ReFirme skin-tightening treatments create smoother, firmer appearances. The crew can also reduce fat and cellulite with VelaShape body contouring, giving clients enough confidence to stroll the beach in bikinis or participate in their offices’ Hot Pants Days.
One wasn't enough for Radiant Complexions Dermatology Clinics—its team of doctors and nurse practitioners have established 11 offices across Iowa and Arizona in the past decade. At each location, dermatology specialists preserve the health and unique character of all skin types with medical and cosmetic treatments. They can resolve all types of skin problems, and tend to strictly aesthetic concerns from the outside in with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers. Offices are equipped with advanced StarLux fractional lasers, which firm the skin by stimulating collagen production at the dermal layer, and VelaShape machines that use radio and light energies to reduce the appearance of cellulite and sagging skin. A scientifically formulated line of skincare products allow for at-home care with glycolic acid, retinol, and Vitamin C.
The skin experts at The Cellulite Clinic drench frames in invigorating coffee extracts to smooth-out cellulite and balance skin texture and tone. To begin the treatment, an exfoliating scrub crafted from real coffee beans polishes away dead skin cells to uncover younger skin and its clumsy macaroni art. The brisk scrub stimulates circulation, helping the body flush away excess fat. Environmental impurities such as heavy metals and hermit crabs then flee from the gentle heat of an infrared body wrap, which helps to dissolve fat cells and flush away excess water. The aromatic treatment cannot only detoxify skin, but can also even out the skin's texture, resulting in smoother contours and reduced evidence of cellulite.
Artemis instills youthfulness with an unlikely blend of artistry and science. Under the same roof, a team of board-certified physicians works alongside aestheticians trained in Chicago, Miami, and LA to rejuvenate patients from the inside and out. Milking convenient medical connections, the spa staff makes use of prescription-strength elixirs to smooth and clarify skin. The doctors flaunt their technical skill with vein-removing injections and lasers, non- and minimally-invasive liposuction alternatives, Botox injections, and championship tournaments of Operation.
Much like the world's worst British accountant, the folks over at Southlake Laser Lipo do one thing well—help people lose pounds. Armed with the Lapex 2000 BCS laser, they attack fat at the cellular level to keep weight at bay permanently. All without ever making an incision, the techs precisely target deposits to slim areas that seem immune to exercise or dieting, such as love handles, thighs, and fingers.
Located inside the Shawn Kristopher Salon and MedSpa, Prater's Skincare and Laser Center is the brainchild of laser technician and aesthetician Erica Prater. She enlists the aid of Dr. Pirinelli, a Board-licensed anesthesiologist with experience in injectables, lasers, and other medical-spa treatments, to help improve clients' appearances. Using their slate of treatments, they help to banish body hair with laser hair removal, remove dead skin cells with microdermabrasion, and fade wrinkles with Botox injections or cinematic effects.
