The highly trained staff at HLC Med harnesses futuristic technology and its own line of products for services that heal, rejuvenate, and beautify. In the guffawing face of father time, technicians roll up their sleeves and unholster their lasers, blasting away acne scarring, rosacea, or hyperpigmentation with the Radiancy SpectraClear system. A chilled-tip laser uproots party-crashing hair from any skin type, and a Q-switched KTP YAG laser sends sun spots packing. Custom chemical peels stimulate cell renewal and collagen production to fill out fine lines, and radio-frequency devices firm up skin and smooth out cellulite. The center also offers services for men, including laser treatments for razor bumps, back-hair removal, and a gentleman's facial that moisturizes faces more effectively than head-butting Poseidon.
The cosmetic clinicians at Essentially Bare rely on a combination of lasers and pharmaceutical-grade products to correct a range of skin issues. Their Lumenis laser has cleared hair from more than 8,000 clients and a dozen former werewolves, and the Q-switched Spectra lasers can erase unwanted tattoos in half the normal amount of treatments required and in shorter intervals between treatments than traditional laser tattoo removal. Additionally, the Spectra lasers effectively target most ink colors, resulting in a significantly lightened or completely erased tattoo in a short time frame.
Before administering any treatments, staff members demonstrate their commitment to personalized care by thoroughly analyzing clients' skin. Essentially Bare also provides physician-only skin care with peels and facials featuring professional brands, such as Obagi, SkinCeuticals and Image Skincare, to ward off wrinkles, redness, and acne. Overall, they offer a wide variety of services such as laser hair removal, Botox and fillers, IPL photo facials, spider vein removal, and more.
For the past two decades, Laser Spa’s owner Karin E. Flynn, C.L.T. has been honing her skills as a certified laser technician and permanent-makeup artist, while working alongside notable plastic surgeons. When she's not refreshing brows and Grover Cleveland mustaches with cosmetic tattoos, Flynn is enhancing patients' appearances with the latest laser technology including the Cynosure Smooth Shapes XV for body sculpting and cellulite treatments. Specialized beams work to banish body hair, unsightly veins, and tattoos, while the Cutera Titan boosts collagen production to tighten skin.
Licensed nurse and aesthetician Jean Donoghue boasts more than 20 years of laser and skincare experience. Her medical-grade skincare repertoire includes microdermabrasion and laser services such as hair removal, skin tightening, tattoo removal, and spider-vein removal. Jean is also an injection specialist, able to treat patients with facial injectables such as Botox, Juvéderm, and Radiesse to help keep faces looking as young as a baby's employee ID.
While many laser-hair-removal spas carry only one laser system, Albany Laser Spa keeps an arsenal. When consulting with a new client, the spa's technicians will evaluate skin and hair type to determine which of the FDA-approved systems will best suit him or her. Also, the staff is LaserFast certified to use the proprietary system that ameliorates the laser's sting with a pulse of cool air, so the technician doesn't have to blow on it.
Trained in cutting-edge fat-reduction procedures such as Smartlipo TriPlex and Vaser Liposelection, Dr. Edwin Ishoo and his staff aim to obliterate cellulite using the latest high-tech cosmetic treatments. The VelaShape II is designed to boost the metabolism of stored energy and shrink fat cells and chambers with a multipronged attack consisting of bipolar radiofrequency, infrared light energies, mechanical massage, and indisputable logic. Patients relax during the quick procedure, which can be as short as 20 minutes, while technicians heat their dermal and hypodermal tissue, then use suction skin rollers in an effort to smooth out crinkly bone covers. Results can appear as soon as the third weekly session and can last up to six months.
