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.
Licensed aestheticians Lynda Young and Monique Mannino split their time between administering spa treatments at Rock Creek Medi Spa and educating students at its adjoining Esthetics Institute. The aestheticians helm a staff of technicians and valedictorian lasers who restore balance and radiance to skin. In addition to addressing epidermal concerns, staff members use non-invasive treatments to contour curves, reduce fine lines, and zap away unwanted hair.
Biovive Medicine's Dr. Kane Lai wields years of experience and a medical degree from Vanderbilt University to help his patients overcome weight and hormone obstacles. The board-certified bariatric surgeon and his staff of physicians, nutritionists, personal trainers, and nurse practitioners set in motion medical weight-loss programs designed to fight flab, combining exercise and diet regimens with lipotropic injections and medications when necessary. In addition to weight-loss services, the center also offers bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, which helps balance hormones set out of whack by menopause, andropause, and painfully vivid memories of high school dances.
When diet and exercise prove no match for out-of-control curves, Dr. Greg Denzel and his staff want you to know you still have options. Across two locations, including the pristine and cottage-like Windsor office and a Lafayette office, the staff streamlines silhouettes with varying degrees of invasiveness, from hormone-replacement therapy to SmartLipo to SuperSculpt. They also beautify mugs with dermal fillers, and usher in relaxation with massage therapy and the whooshing sound of knotted kinks fleeing the scene.
Though Amy Granger and Kathryn Brooks are trained in different areas of holistic healthcare—Amy is a colon hydrotherapist and Kathryn is a reiki master and iridologist—they share a common goal: to support the body’s natural healing processes. At Love and Light Holistic Health Services, they team up to achieve this goal with a number of alternative treatments.
Amy draws on her vast knowledge to flush out toxins lodged in the intestinal tract during colon hydrotherapy treatments. To ensure a comfortable experience, she incorporates relaxing aromatherapy into each hour-long session, and may call on acupressure and energy work as necessary. For another dose of detoxification, guests can sit back and enjoy ionic foot baths. These soothing treatments use electrically charged water to release toxins through the feet, so you’ll never have to ruin another radio by taking it into the bathtub with you.
Helmed by owner Shannon A. Wolfgang, the staff of injection specialists at A Hair Never There smoothes skin, removes unwanted follicles, and banishes cellulite with FDA-approved techniques and services. Botox injections remove facial folds and wrinkles for months at a time, and VelaShape treatments can undo cellulite without invasive surgery or dangerous, human-size panini presses. The med spa's technicians draw from extensive certification and medical experience as they beautify both men and women, reducing future hair growth with lasers and electrolysis and helping restore youthful glows to skin with light therapy and chemical peels.
Donna Lapetina, owner and head aesthetician at Skin Solutions Medical Spa, has spent the last decade caring for aging skin—including her own. Donna and her team work their age-defying magic under the direction of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Boyle, whose career includes time as a flight surgeon, a lieutenant commander in the military, and a volunteer speaker on skin cancer. The staff’s specialty services include microdermabrasion, peels, and facials, as well as intensive acne treatments. Dr. Boyle performs all Botox and dermal-filler procedures herself to safely keep crow’s-feet, frown lines, and worry lines at bay. Clients receive their treatments in private, earth-toned rooms that mix the serenity of a spa with the professionalism of a medical office.
Rather than buying leftover potions from local sorcerers, Skin Solutions Medical Spa has developed its own line of products, including cleansers, eye creams, and an exfoliating scrub. The gentle solutions are formulated with ingredients such as green-tea extract, oil of calendula, and cranberry extract.
