New Orleans native Dr. Jonathan Weiler and his staff enhance natural beauty with cosmetic procedures and laser services that remove tattoos and unsightly veins. They also provide minimally invasive treatments that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The aesthetician at Louisiana Dermatology Associates pampers clients' pores with individualized one-hour spa facials in a stress-free beautification sanctuary. Tailored to each complexion's needs, each soothing treatment begins with a thorough cleansing to ferry away dirt, makeup, and milk mustaches embedded deep in the skin. Exfoliation buffs away dull, dead cells, and a massage aims to promote circulation and relax scowl muscles. The aesthetician then helps to nourish and brighten faces by applying pore-opening steam and a moisturizing mask instead of a lucha-libre mask. The clinic recommends receiving facials or dermatologist-approved pies to the face every three–six weeks, depending on skin type.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Elizabeth A. Kinsley and her technicians take a highly personal approach to each cosmetic surgery and noninvasive procedure in order to help women feel comfortable and informed throughout each step. Her office brims with the latest state-of-the-art technology, including an Axis 3-D breast-imaging system and an iPhone app that helps women determine which breast-implant size is right for them. Nonsurgical enhancements include Botox, Juvéderm, and FDA-approved CoolSculpting—a liposuction alternative that destroys fat cells by freezing them and requires no lasers, needles, suction hoses, or dynamite.
The skilled skin technicians at Softouch Permanent Makeup erases unwanted spider veins doodled across the face and body with safe Veinwave treatments that result in no downtime. During the minimally invasive treatment, an ultra-fine insulated needle releases heated energy beneath the epidermis. The warm wavelengths thermo-coagulate and break down the unsightly vessel walls, rerouting blood to deep-lying veins and causing purple and blue etchings to dissolve immediately, confounding archaeologists preparing to study them. Though skin can be de-veined almost immediately, patients may feel a small pinching sensation during the Veinwave injections, which can lead to small post-treatment microcrusts that naturally vanish within a few days. Results may vary, and Softouch Permanent Makeup recommends up to three treatments in some cases.
With 25 years of experience treating hair loss under their belts, the experienced doctors at The Hair Loss Control Clinic aim to combat hair loss in men and women with painless laser hair-therapy treatments, earning the clinic a mention from WWLTV. During the consultation, doctors scrutinize scalps, explain the treatment, and answer patient questions, such as “Why doesn’t male pattern baldness create more interesting designs?” Patients can sit and relax as a safe low-light-level laser, which boasts a 30-year track record and a successful FDA clinical trial, haloes heads in red-light energy in an effort to rout out male and female pattern baldness, thinning hair, alopecia areata, and traction alopecia. The light works to stimulate metabolism and dormant disco-dance moves in cells, helping follicles repair themselves.

In the SmoothShapes cellulite-reduction treatment, a rolling tool employs a vacuum and two different laser wavelengths to shrink fat cells, smooth lumpy fat deposits, and stimulate collagen production. Treatments result in firmer, smoother skin ideal for slithering between the couch and the wall to retrieve lost TV remotes. While eight SmoothShapes sessions are recommended for maximum results, many patients experience a noticeable difference after four.
When he's not penning articles for peer-reviewed journals or presenting at medical conferences around the country, Dr. Richard Gitter continues perfecting his surgical treatment of blood vessels at Gitter Vein Institute.
