Tru Beaute Med Spa boasts a staff of three heroines whose primary nemeses are stress and Father Time. The spa's partner in crime, Uchenna, also combats aging with the help of cosmetic injections. She uses wrinkle relaxers such as Botox and dermal fillers such as Restylane and Perlane to firm up the skin, fading frown lines without mandating that clients only watch sitcoms from now on. Their leader and spa manager, licensed massage therapist Valerie, fends off stress and muscle ache with specialized massages to address each client's therapeutic and relaxation needs. Lead medical esthetician Elizabeth's noninvasive HydraFacials simultaneously moisturize, exfoliate, and protect the skin through hydradermabrasion, and her dermaplaning procedures gently clear away dead skin cells to reveal luminous complexions.
Rounding out the team roster, medical esthetician Tasha specializes in the application of permanent makeup and eyelash extensions. Tasha applies permanent makeup by hand, which allows for a softer look for her clients. She works carefully with each client to achieve the look they desire, and follows up with her permanent makeup clients for a touchup after 4 weeks. Cups of coffee and wine, served beneath the waiting room's sphere of hanging crystals, contribute to the spa's aura of relaxation.
Jay J. Garcia and his cadre of bariatric physicians customize safe weight-loss programs for patients yearning to shed pounds. The two-week plan opens with a consultation, during which time a specialist charts each client’s starting measurements, completes an EKG and blood work, maps out a nutritional plan, and prescribes medication and supplements. Clients also receive an injection of B vitamins and FDA-approved medicine to balance hormones and jump-start the metabolism without crashing cymbals near the stomach. After the initial visit, patients return three more times for quick injections and a follow-up to ensure the program is functioning smoothly. The clinic also arms clients with a 30-day supply of multivitamins and a stress-support supplement.
From the soft pillows on the wicker furniture to the luxurious drapes that conceal private treatment rooms, April Beauty Time and Health Spa is clearly a place intended for relaxation—for guests. The spa's aestheticians, however, are models of productive activity, working to beautify clients' faces and skin with waxing and skincare services or to rid bodies of excess fat cells with contouring treatments.

Spa treatments such as deep-tissue massages, body wraps, and manicures transform the space into a haven for relaxation.
The doctors at Envizion Medical help their patients uncover optimal health and balance in their lives through hormone-replacement therapy, weight-loss programs, and food-allergy testing. The therapies and methods tend to focus on hormone optimization, which doctors believe keeps people feeling more youthful and energetic than a kitten rollerblading through catnip.
Dr. Roger Bassin doesn't tell new patients why he should be their cosmetic surgeon. Instead, he puts them in contact with past patients to help them learn about the experience and life-changing results from people who have been through it themselves.
At Dr. Bassin's side is a supporting staff that performs aesthetic and cosmetic nonsurgical procedures such as Botox and vein removal. Meanwhile, the center's aesthetician Marsha Ostrander reenlivens faces with 15 years' experience performing facials, masks, waxing, and more, and a kissing booth manned by an electric eel.
