Med-Physique is built on a foundation of experience: specifically, the teams more than two decades of experience in the beauty industry. Inside a clean, modern facility, they help clients achieve beauty through technology. A Lipo-laser tightens skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite in non-invasive sessions. Meanwhile, high-tech treatments such as IPL photo-facials, chemical peels, and sclerotherapy vein treatments performed by a registered nurse help to alleviate skin conditions by revealing a new, completely different face underneath the client's old one.
At Bella Body Design, slimming down clients' silhouettes takes teamwork. The clinic specializes in body-contouring treatments that combine radio, monopolar, bipolar, and tripolar frequency waves—a six-stage sytem that reduces fat and cellulite while contouring to the shape of the body more efficiently than either method alone, and is the only Austin-area clinic to use this system. As the radio-frequency waves heat the fat cells beneath the skin, ultrasonic waves rupture and break them up, followed by the vacuum to push the breakage into the lymphatic system. From there the body metabolizes the cells naturally, which leaves skin smoother on areas such as the stomach, thighs, and arms. The treatment also works on the face and chin, where it fades wrinkles and lifts sagging skin without clients having to resort to strips of duct tape attached to helium balloons. Each session is gentle, noninvasive, and, unlike surgeries with similar effects, requires no downtime.
Wellsprings Dermaspa feels like the sort of place that’s been hiding right under your nose the whole time. The simple spa hideaway sits tucked into a new, upscale office building just off the 183. There are several medical offices in the same area, but Wellsprings focuses on more homeopathic treatments, all from within their calming and comfortable interior. Husband-and-wife owners Shannon and Andy Hicks are well-loved for their array of treatments, including laser hair removal, photofacials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion and other anti-aging treatments. All of these rejuvenating techniques are performed quickly but not without care, and Wellsprings’ spotless, professional rooms put guests immediately at ease.
Dr. Deirdre Rhoad spent her childhood learning the skills she would eventually need as one of the Austin area's few female plastic surgeons. Her grandmother taught her to sew, and her piano teacher helped her learn how to hold her hands in a steady position. Although those two had an impact on her dexterous fingers, it was her parents and siblings who instilled in her a deep sense of empathy and inspired her to help women feel less self-conscious.
At Rhoad to Beauty MedSpa, the board-certified plastic surgeon and spa medical director Dr. Deirdre Rhoad and her staff do just that with noninvasive skincare services. Licensed aesthetician Molly Teeple removes spider veins, treats acne, reduces sun damage, and boosts collagen production with photofacials, while micro- and vibradermabrasion treatments slough off dead skin cells. To smooth wrinkles and rejuvenate skin, Dr. Rhoad injects dermal fillers, Botox, and Dysport into facial and neck lines, hollows, and creases.
Diet and exercise don’t always slim down trouble spots, and they rarely do so with any measure of speed. Georgetown Lipo Laser Treatment Center expedites the weight-loss process with noninvasive Zerona body-sculpting treatments, which have been featured on The Doctors. During the treatments, cool light from Zerona lasers target problem areas to shrink inches off bodies, often yielding visible results after one treatment. Aestheticians offer other services, such as the all-natural Herbalogica contouring body wrap, which slims bodies while flushing toxins with gentle pressure, the same kind of pressure UN diplomats put on other UN diplomats when they tickle each other for the sake of economic policy.
Dr. Patrick Beckham has seen a great deal of advancement in plastic surgery during his 35 years of servicing patients in Austin and surrounding areas. First certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery in 1972, Dr. Beckham is known as one of the first innovators in breast-implant technology and has kept up-to-date with the changes in surgery techniques. Aside from plastic surgeries, his other services have advanced as well—from invasive liposuction to noninvasive body-contouring treatments and a nonsurgical face-lift that reduces acne and leaves skin supple, like a pillow under a layer of whipped cream. The staff relieves pain and removes tension with timeless Swedish or deep-tissue massage as well as the touchless hydrotherapy massage, which uses rotating water jets along the body.
