Board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, Dr. Lawrence Janowski of Sonata Laser Aesthetics smoothes aging faces with Botox treatments. The doctor injects the FDA-approved medicine directly into facial muscles to impede the nerve impulses responsible for the formation of wrinkles, fine lines, and railroad lines impeding the visage from achieving maximum attractiveness. Twenty units generally treat one area and help to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines between the brows in clients aged 18–65, while other areas may require additional units ($10/unit). The de-wrinkling effects of the quick noninvasive treatment begin to kick in a few days after the injections take place and typically last three–six months, or the average gestation period of the lesser-horned newt.
At Soleil, a medical spa located within Salon Republic, certified laser specialist Selina Hernandez and Dr. Gerald Searle keep clients looking their best with an array of methods. Hernandez diminishes unwanted hair growth with laser hair-removal sessions, boosts collagen production with IPL photofacials for a more youthful look, and clears away acne with IPL acne treatments. Dr. Searle smoothes away fine lines and signs of aging with Botox and dermal fillers.
The staffers at Laser Magic devote themselves entirely to the circumference-reducing operation of the Zerona cold laser. Under the discerning eye of the center's medical director, an all-female team of laser technicians carries out each 40-minute treatment gently and efficiently. The FDA-approved procedure is completely noninvasive and requires minimal downtime. Staff also administer IPL treatments, facials, and injections, while waxers remove unwanted hair.
The experts at Chrysalides harness the healing potential of focused light, which rejuvenates the skin and stems the growth of body hair. Technicians use IPL—or intense pulsed light—therapy to beam energy directly into hair follicles and halt their growth. Staff can call on the same technology to stimulate collagen, producing tighter skin, reduced fine lines, and smaller pores.
