Though he eventually made it back to his native Atlanta, Dr. A. Randle Beecham's medical journey took him to some of the South's finest institutes of higher learning. After honor-filled stints at a range of universities, Dr. Beecham founded a family practice in Cherokee County, supervising the health of a generation of patients during a two-decade career. Now, in addition to saving lives through emergency medicine and working as the Medical Director of the Atlanta Pregnancy Resource Center, Dr. Beecham brings his talents to Shefa Wellness Center.
There, a range of equipment, from imaging machines to fat-reducing radio-frequency devices, allows the team to work towards health and beauty goals alike. A battery of lasers fill the clinic, waiting to whiten teeth, improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, or remove stretch marks. Drawing on this selection of treatment options, Dr. Beecham and the rest of the staff work with patients to assemble customized plans.
Serenity Med Spa's technicians execute a comprehensive menu of skincare services, outfitting their center with the latest technology and a selection of medical-grade products by Obagi and Neocutis. Beyond the waiting area's chocolate-brown leather couch and jade-hued tiles, the staff smoothes away blemishes with IPL photofacials, fractional-laser-resurfacing treatments, and microdermabrasions. Additionally, they oversee the facility's collection of tanning beds and UV-free airbrush stations, which leave clients' skin with a natural-looking bronze that, much like the lifespan of a red-giant star, may last as long as 10 days.
Imagix Dental & Orthodontics' team of smile shiners leaves gleaming grins in its wake at offices stationed across the Atlanta area. To begin whitening sessions, clinicians paint pearlies with a special light-activated gel, then switch on the Zoom! light to activate stain-lifting action that erases discoloration from coffee drinking, cigar smoking, and oil swigging. Lips and gums are shielded so that only enamel whitens as clients listen to music or relax in chairs. The sessions last about an hour, after which chompers emerge an average of eight shades lighter, and offer a quicker alternative for brightening smiles than outfitting mouths with solar panels.
With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
At Youthtopia Med Spa, a skin-rejuvenation and total-body-wellness facility, an experienced mix of dietitians, registered nurses, and aestheticians helps to boost patrons' beauty with technology-driven treatments and professional skincare products. From among a wide menu of services, the staff whittles physiques with laser-lipo systems, turns back facial time clocks with medical peels and injectables, and hides evidence of coffee rings with teeth-whitening treatments.

Smile Bright Teeth Whitening’s patented in-home and office-based procedures brighten smiles by removing stains, rather than tricking neighbor kids to paint rows of teeth with a coat of whitewash. During simple 40-minute self-administered treatments or one-hour office visits, a specially formulated peroxide gel combined with LED rays break down stubborn discolorations on tooth surfaces, front to back. After reaching their desired shade, patients keep up their newfound dental sparkle with occasional whitening sessions scheduled once or twice a month. Many customers notice dramatic improvements after only one treatment and additional gel refills are available for purchase through the Smile Bright website.
