MEDermis Facials' board-certified medical director captains a team of certified laser specialists and medical aestheticians, who help their clients reach aesthetic goals with the help of advanced technology. Together, the team has safely erased more than 200,000 unwanted tattoos of all shapes, sizes, and colors using Lutronic Spectra lasers. The cutting-edge apparatuses emit q-switched beams of high-energy light, which help disband ink particles and prepare them to be naturally jettisoned from the body via the lymphatic system—technical speak for "laser eraser". The lasers flit over skinscapes, fostering smooth, even skin with minimal risk of scarring, disrupting natural pigments, or attracting bored cats. In addition to getting rid of unwanted ink, the talented staff can also help to correct skin troubles with peels, microdermabrasion, and other skin care services.
Dr. Carolyn W. Quist and Astrique fight fat cells with the powers of FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
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.
According to the professionals at DFW Tattoo Removal, an estimated one in five adults regret their tattoo decisions. These regrets are due to a range of reasons from employment pressure and taste change to relationships ending and favorite TV villains turning out to be the good guys. Located inside the Calista Skin & Laser Center, DFW Tattoo Removal’s professional technicians use modern laser technology to quickly and cleanly erase unwanted images and words from the skin. They also take aim at sun and age spots, and accidental or “traumatic” tattoos that often occur during motorcycle or firework accidents.
Esthetician Crystal Harrison believes that healthy skin is beautiful skin. At Zanna Grace Skincare, she develops completely custom treatment plans using Skin Script Rx and Circadia Skin Care products and teaches clients how to care for their complexions for years to come. Besides facials and peels, her service menu includes permanent makeup, eyelash extensions, and waxing. And, to help contour physiques, in addition to herbal contouring gels and botanical products, she envelops clients in detoxifying body wraps that use infrared heat to detoxify the skin and increase tone and elasticity.
The aestheticians at Artistic Additions specialize in enhancing natural looks with permanent makeup such as lip liner, eyeliner, or scar camouflage. Staff are also adept at attaching eyelash extensions and performing microdermabrasions that work to clear away skin imperfections using small crystals.
