The staff at Vitalogy Skincare tends to skin's health and appearance across eight dermatology locations. Medical-dermatology services cover conditions such as acne, rosacea, and hair loss; cosmetic dermatology focuses on looks with Botox and Juvéderm injections, as well as laser removal of spider veins and hair. Lasers also resurface skin or guide complexions through photorejuvenation, which diminishes the appearance of sun damage to restore younger, more vibrant looking skin. Vitalogy also tackles skin cancer with Mohs surgery—in which founding doctor Eric Adelman, DO, is a fellowship-trained physician—a precise method that quashes the cancer by carefully removing tissue layer by layer.
Sara Berens, Luster Spa's owner and lead aesthetician, distills 13 years of professional experience into each treatment, performing efficacious facials and hair-removal services. Located inside Salon Republic, Luster Spa uses warm wax to clear skin areas of unwanted hair, leaving room for the studio's Swarovski crystal body tattoos or hand-penned grocery lists. A collection of facials treats specific concerns including those of acne-prone, dehydrated, and aging skin.
At Beautiful Solutions, beauty seekers acquire lustrous and toxin-free skin without transplanting their brains into metallic exoskeletons that attract refrigerator magnets. Each body wrap utilizes a blend of 27 select minerals and herbs mixed with aloe vera to heal and nurture absorbent skin. During the treatment, the body is covered in special towels soaked in a mineral and herb solution, and the senses are soothed by aromatic scents. Skin emerges toned and firm, but not likely to bully hair follicles and take their lunch money. Drinking eight glasses of water per day for the next five days facilitates the detoxification process and helps maintain a sleek and revitalized muscle holster. Male patients must bring swimming apparel for the treatment.
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.
The laser technicians and medical aestheticians at Skinologie Medical Spa value the role that technology plays in providing noninvasive alternatives to serious skincare concerns. Instead of relying on surgery, since the Spa's founding in 2008, they have been using an array of cutting-edge products and devices that generate dramatic cosmetic results. Skinologie recently opened its second location in Cedar Park under the ownership of Skinologie founder and nurse practitioner, Francis Mijares. MIjares prides himself in leading a team of medically-trained and certified staff. In addition to exfoliating skin with diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, technicians use intense pulses of light to minimize the appearance of blemishes such as wrinkles, oversize pores, and reminders you jotted on your hand to pick up the dry cleaning. The staff also bolsters collagen production with radio-frequency technology and eradicates unwanted stubble with laser energy. But even with all these cosmetic services available, they still embrace their training as medical professionals by diagnosing serious skin conditions and removing troublesome moles.
Virtually no aesthetic concerns go unaddressed at Essentials Spa and Salon, which employs a diverse team of stylists and aestheticians as well as med-spa technicians armed with contemporary cosmetic technology. The salon staff keeps its clients looking sharp by pampering tresses with haircare products by Moroccanoil, KMS, and L'Oréal Professional, and the nail technicians augment their mani-pedis with everything from paraffin dips to agave-nectar rubs.
The massage therapists treat concerns beneath the surface by kneading overstressed muscles with a variety of soothing modalities, but the med-spa team also strives to effect deeper changes. Overseen by Dr. Michael Lesser, the technicians can employ cutting-edge equipment and products, including microdermabrasion wands, a cosmetic laser system, and clinical-strength skincare balms. These treatments collectively rejuvenate the skin while minimizing the appearance of blemishes that typically accompany aging, sun exposure, or frequent naps in a bathtub full of wet newspapers.
