Medical aesthetics specialist Lisa Mangrum brings almost 20 years of experience and an arsenal of advanced technology to her med spa. Peels, photofacials, and microdermabrasions work together to refresh complexions, and a quartet of carefully calibrated lasers lets staff adapt hair-removal treatments to different skin and hair types. Injectables, such as Botox, aim to smooth out facial contours, and permanent makeup leaves mugs photo-ready, even when doused in Gatorade after a spelling-bee win.
In addition to extensive training, an technician requires all the proper tools. The technicians and clinicians at Look Young Atlanta rely on their experience to effectively wield the facility's technology, marshaling a Cutera CoolGlide cosmetic laser system to all manner of cosmetic woes. With extensive knowledge of the laser system's various uses and settings, the team helps patients by zapping and eliminating unsightly stubble, stimulating collagen production for younger-looking skin, and erasing unwanted tattoos of the entire Pledge of Allegiance in Wingdings. The center's medical director for medical weight-loss programs and facial filler services, Dr. John Ouderkirk, splits his time between guiding the staff and aiding patients as they undertake medically assisted weight-loss regimens.
The licensed aestheticians at Defined Sugaring Studio know that sugar doesn't just make chocolate cakes delicious and cardboard cakes palatable, it also removes unwanted hair more efficiently than wax. That's because its blend of all-natural lemon, water, and sugar grips hair shafts while never sticking to skin, allowing estheticians to clear away strands with less irritation. The esthetician further protects the skin with multi-purpose Hungarian hydrating mud, which soothes with anti-inflammatory ingredients for a rejuvenating treatment that clears away stored toxins and optionally helps with ingrown hairs.

Master stylist Jessica Dunn keeps up with the latest haircare trends through her Onesta continuing-education classes. She uses the organic, eco-friendly, and PETA-approved haircare brand while styling hair at 97 Main Salon, where she also creates low-maintenance layered 'dos by wet-cutting hair and imbuing locks with multi-dimensional color.
Her fellow beauty experts tend to hair as well, removing unwanted strands on the body through waxing or electrolysis, both of which are performed in a private room in the salon.
