Led by Dr. Douglas J. Mackenzie, the registered nurses, aestheticians, and physicians? assistants at Pacific Plastic Surgery help clients amp up their self-confidence with a wide offering of both noninvasive and surgical services. Dr. Mackenzie, who has studied at Johns Hopkins, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and Cornell University Medical Center, wields his extensive experience and know-how to perform tummy tucks, scar revisions, and face-lifts. A specially designed, multifaceted medical weight-loss program helps patients get fit healthily, and the center?s noninvasive spa services get faces in shape for special events and awkward family photos.
Med spas and day spas may appear similar, but in reality, they're about as different as a baby and the American president he's dressed as. In order to earn the name med spa, a business must employ physicians, who oversee the various beauty treatments, as well as a medically trained staff. That's because the services offered by med spas tend to be more invasive than those offered at day spas.
At Tre Jolie MediSpa, a board-certified surgeon leads a team that includes skincare specialists and a registered nurse with more than 35 years of experience. These experts seek to improve appearances with services that range from Botox and Juvederm injections to laser hair removal and laser vein therapy.
Tre Jolie MediSpa also fine tunes bodies with less invasive services, such as facials that use PCA Skin products, body waxing, and Latisse eyelash-enhancement serum.
At Beauty Lounge Medical Spa, the staff strives to boost clients' self-image. To do so, they guide them through weight-loss programs, rejuvenate skin with exfoliating dermaplaning, and fill wrinkles with Botox. Licensed medical professionals also wield lasers designed for hair removal, body sculpting, vein removal, and photofacials.
Petra Medi Spa enlists the aid of medical professionals, highly skilled aestheticians, and an arsenal of medical-grade technology to improve appearances with nonsurgical alternatives. Dr. Liliana Cohen?a board-certified neurologist?oversees the efforts of her team members as they provide cutting-edge care intended to fight everything from acne scars to wrinkles.
The center's fractional CO2 resurfacing laser improves skin tone while minimizing the appearance of pigmented blemishes, and the LightSheer cosmetic laser system zaps hair follicles, preventing the hairs from growing back as effectively. Salicylic chemical peels exfoliate the outermost layers of the skin and shrink oversized pores. Injectable dermal fillers?such as Restylane and Juvederm?help fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
Additionally, the center offers chiropractic care and massage therapy for visitors seeking relief from the chronic pains caused by giving piggyback rides to everyone in the grocery-store parking lot.
At Jana's Skin Care Studio, a quartet of private treatment rooms serve as a pampering oasis for clients. Aestheticians with more than 20 years of experience use the healing benefits of seaweed and crystal-tipped microdermabrasion wands to strip faces of dead skin cells and restore luster to skin. Blank facial canvases can shine with airbrush or watercolor makeup applications, or permanent makeup services. TCA peels, and photo-abrasion skin-resurfacing treatments are other exfoliating options. The studio's other beautifying services include airbrush tanning, massages, waxing, lash extension application, tinting, and spider-vein removal treatments.
As medical director of Dermatique Medical Center, Dr. Marc Kerner has developed a vast knowledge of facial plastic surgery, dermal fillers, and other skincare topics, a fact which has made him a go-to expert on CBS 2 and KCAL 9 news. Backed by board-certified surgeons and aesthetic nurse specialists, Dr. Kerner and crew rejuvenate epidermises with advanced skincare treatments ranging from laser vein removal to CosMedix chemical peels. To keep refreshed complexions beaming bright, Dermatique's staff recommends Cosmedix products, with options for all skin types.
