Dr. Iman Al-Haj, owner and medical director of Feel and Live Better Medical Spa, followed a fascination with the human body across the Atlantic Ocean?she obtained her board certification in general surgery in the United Kingdom, then headed to the US to hone her skills in Houston. Now Dr. Al-Haj, along with a team of nutritionists and aestheticians, puts her knowledge to use by renovating fa?ades with cosmetic procedures and improving health with nutritional wellness services. Along with hydrating facials and vitamin-infused masks, the team amps up looks with dermal fillers, hair transplants, and laser therapies. One such therapy is Cynosure SmartSkin technology, which is designed to blast away sun damage, smooth wrinkles, and eternally banish acne scars to high-school-yearbook photos. The staff helps maintain clients' youthful complexions with Youngblood mineral makeup, Rhonda Allison products, and the spa's own skincare line. The spa also offers minimally-invasive body contouring with Tickel liposuction, laser skin-tightening with Lipotherm procedures, and fat-grafting for the face, buttocks, and hands.
Helmed by board-certified physician and skincare specialist Dr. Naz Keshwani, the team at Med-Cure Anti-Aging & Skin Care performs the latest minimally invasive aesthetic and weight-loss procedures. The doc prescribes a spectrum of laser procedures for skin issues, including spider- and varicose-vein treatments, laser hair or tattoo removal, and a Blu-U acne treatment that is designed to safely kill blemish-causing bacteria in the skin. FDA-approved injectables such as Botox and Juvederm smooth out lines and wrinkles webbed across the face, and potent chemical peels work to reverse the effects of sun damage or spending too long watching food cook in the microwave.
The team works with clients on general health issues, too—overweight individuals can sit down with Dr. Keshwani for a weight-loss consultation, complete with bloodwork and metabolism-boosting injections. Women can benefit from bio-identical hormone therapy—made from plant-derived hormones—which can help alleviate the ailments of menopause, including slowed metabolism, hot flashes, and even osteoporosis and heart disease.

At Dermagenix Medical Spa, Dr. H. Kim Vo and her team of nurses and medical aestheticians rejuvenate their patients' skin the same way they would their own. "Every morning," Vo explains to Total Body Magazine, "I put on Dermagenix SPF 24." Her faith in the Dermagenix line doesn't stop there. "I exfoliate with Dermagenix foaming facial refiner," she continues. "At night, I use Dermagenix oil-free hydrating fluid."
An anti-aging specialist who personally uses their own products is a strong endorsement, and Dr. Vo and her staff further ensure that each treatment is carried out with care by beginning each one with a complimentary consultation. Whether it’s laser hair removal, a chemical peel, or an IPL photofacial, one of the onsite physicians or Vo herself oversees each procedure.
