Drawing from more than 25 years of experience working in the med-spa and cosmetic-surgery field, Kathleen Rocca harnesses her knowledge and skills as a clinical aesthetician at her own skincare and anti-aging haven: Eastlake Rejuvenation Center. Guests pass through a lushly landscaped patio area as they arrive for the noninvasive cosmetic treatments, including facials with red and blue LED light, body-contouring laser lipolysis sessions, or photofacials that use intense pulsed light to tighten lax skin loosened after one too many trips to the moon.
In addition to helping area residents look and feel better, Rocca stays involved with her community on a grander scale, sharing beauty advice on Fox 6 news and serving as the president of the?Bonita Business & Professional Association.
Dr. Melinda Silva specializes in balance. She earned a Compassionate Physician Award from her patients for balancing emotional connection and clinical savvy, but she can also balance more concrete entities: hormones. Her bioidentical-hormone therapies alleviate the imbalances that can cause issues from mood swings to obesity. To complement them, Dr. Silva prescribes lifestyle changes such as diet alterations, new fitness regimens, and healthier sleep routines. Her clinic handles aesthetic concerns just as adeptly as medical ones, with noninvasive physique-contouring Exilis treatments, wrinkle-smoothing Botox injections, and chemical peels.
Skin Alive and its aesthetician school, Mequon Thiensville School of Esthetics, are devoted to the study and practice of skincare. Clients can choose to visit the hands-on student-learning center for aesthetic services performed by students under instructor supervision, or head to the Skin Alive spa for services performed by a licensed professional. Both offer basic beauty services, such as facials, peels, and waxing, but the licensed aestheticians at Skin Alive can also slough off dead skin cells with diamond-tip microdermabrasion, rejuvenate skin with lasers, and vanquish unwelcome hair with laser hair-removal treatments that leave skin smoother than a cue ball smothered in olive oil.
