The moment Dr. Lisa Ochoa learned that "a person without teeth would lose an average of 10 years off their lifespan" was the moment she decided to become a dentist. Dr. Ochoa is one of Westlake Premier Dentistry's four dentists. Led by the clinic's chief dentist, Dr. Thomas Ince, Dr. Ochoa and her colleagues Drs. Chad Orlich and David Burden take an overall-wellness approach when treating their patients, stressing the importance of regular cleanings that aim to promote long-term health and minty-fresh exhalations.
While waiting to meet with one of the doctors, guests may sip on complimentary cups of coffee and tea. A children's video-game room occupies fidgety fingers, and an Internet café with WiFi entertains laptops that have come in to be straightened. Those visiting the homey dental office relax amid pale-yellow walls and treatment rooms with ceiling-mounted televisions.
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.
Visitors to BodyBrite are encouraged to adopt one simple motto: "Let your beauty shine." To help them achieve this glowing goal, a staff of aesthetic professionals offers an array of noninvasive med-spa services. Permanent hair removal whisks unwanted hair from the body thanks to intense pulses of light, while skin-rejuvenation treatments employ the same technology to target the fine lines and sun spots that come with age. For additional complexion care, oxygen treatments bathe pores in herbal ingredients and oxygen sourced from free-range clouds. And, ensuring no part goes unpolished, the clinic also performs teeth-whitening sessions to lift stains from smiles.
