Blending her medical experience with an eye for beauty, Angie restores vitality to careworn bodies with sclerotherapy and cosmetic injectables. Her treatment menu is diverse but not overwhelming in its scope, allowing her to specialize in a handful of treatments that she executes with time-tested skill. Beautifiers such as Botox help keep complexions smooth and pouts looking plumpest, and sclerotherapy medication—when activated by a reading of the saddest pages from _Charlotte’s Web_—sends spider veins scurrying away.
Zen Bella Vita's licensed professionals use injectables and peels to freshen façades and create younger-looking complexions. Their Botox, Juvéderm, and Restylane treatments all target wrinkles, but each anti-aging injectable is different, like snowflakes or not-quite-successful clones. Each one helps create firmer, smoother skin in a different way. Microcurrent technology helps reduce the effects of aging such as fine lines as it firms the skin and contours the face.

Ornate chandeliers hang from sleek metal rafters at From Within MedSpa, a complementary pairing that echoes Charlene and Fred Williams's blend of Eastern and Western healing philosophies.

She helps smooth away fine lines with dermal fillers and chemical peels, and she contours physiques with HCG weight-loss programs. In addition to one-on-one appointments, the med spa routinely hosts wedding or Botox parties.
