Image Centre's treatment menu might seem overwhelming if it wasn't for the technicians, stylists, aestheticians, and surgeons on hand to walk clients through their options. For quick beauty touchups, they may recommend a Shellac manicure or an airbrush spray tan. A more involved appointment might include a microdermabrasion facial combined with a cherry clarifying peel, or it might consist of a Brazilian blowout and a karaoke performance of the album "American Pie" and Other Eight-Minute Songs. Most serious of all would be the center's cosmetic-surgery options, including eye-lifts and liposuction, performed at a separate surgery center. To address their long-term health concerns, clients can also explore the center's weight-loss plans, which rely heavily on B12 and other vitamin injections in an effort to impact the body's metabolism.
Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Amir Moradi, Moradi M.D.’s staff tends to cosmetic issues with noninvasive services, surgical treatments, and everything in between. The doctors help their clients settle on a plan suitable for their lifestyles and aesthetic goals before they undergo series of treatments, which can include laser hair removal, injections, rhinoplasty, and chemical peels from experienced providers.
A board-certified plastic surgeon oversees the beautifying procedures at OasisMD, from cosmetic tucks and lifts to laser treatments and high-tech spa services. Beam-based services include blemish-banishing photofacials, acne clearing, and laser hair removal that erases unwanted strands from virtually any body part. Facial fillers such as Botox or Dysport help fill in fine lines and wrinkles, while Latisse treatments encourage personal growth in stubbornly immature eyelashes.
Dr. Carl A. Powell, board-certified surgeon and founder of The Cardiff Medical Spa, is so trusted in his field that his fellow surgeons often choose him to be their practitioner when they have to go under the knife. He also trains his fellow surgeons in new procedures and maintains privileges at multiple area hospitals and sledding hills. His services are not limited to surgical lifts, tucks, and augmentations—he also oversees an array of laser and noninvasive beauty treatments with medical aesthetician Chelsea Papin, who has five years of experience and performs all of the waxing services. Papin uses a hard wax from Boston that is gentle and great for sensitive skin.
Under the expert guidance of specially trained physicians, staffers harness the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
Zenaida, the brains behind Foxy Box Specialty Waxing and Natural Skincare, calls on more than a decade of experience to polish her clients’ skin. Alarmed by the number of skincare products on the market that are tested on animals, the aesthetician has made it her mission to not only use only environmentally sound and cruelty-free products in her studio but help her clients do the same at home. Hair-removal services, her specialty, use either French wax or an all-natural sugaring paste that incorporates sugar, water, and lemon juice in a water-soluble serum that requires little to no heat. To purify faces, she mixes her eco-friendly formulas with other natural ingredients to create custom facials and masks. Organic, fresh fruits and vegetables lavish skin cells with their natural enzymes and knowledge of the gritty orchard underworld to help leave skin glowing and refreshed, and additions of organic powders such as hemp, cocoa, rice, or algae help soothe the skin and fight signs of aging.
