Lead by medical director Gregory Laurence, Germantown Aesthetics’s team of trained specialists beautifies clients’ epidermal landscapes during noninvasive and surgical treatments. Germantown Aesthetics welcomes patients into a handsome, historic building raised in 1887 that now combines space-age lasers and medical equipment with the earth-toned décor and meticulous facial-hair grooming of the late 19th century. Within soothing treatment rooms, physician assistants and registered nurses work alongside Dr. Laurence to fill out wrinkles with Botox and Juvéderm, sculpt svelte waistlines with liposuction, and erase unwanted veins from the surface of legs with advanced laser treatments.
Memphis Laser Clinic gives the skin a fresh start by erasing tattoos of any shape or size. The center’s special tattoo-removal equipment was designed by Quanta—the company whose lasers have partnered with CERN, sliced De Beers diamonds out of the rough, and helped restore the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Memphis Laser Clinic uses Quanta's Q-Plus C system, which targets pigments with controlled micropulses of laser light energy that destabilize the ink and allow the circulatory system to naturally dissolve the design. These pulses can affect virtually any ink—including deep blues, bright greens, and rarely glimpsed infrareds—and they cause minimal discomfort to the surrounding tissue. To help soothe the skin, technicians can utilize a cryogenic skin-cooling system, but the laser can still cause the sensation of a snapping rubber band with each pulse.
Dr. Roland Hollis and Robin Hollis, a licensed practical nurse, help their patients ward off the signs of aging with an array of cosmetic techniques. They use beauty injections and platelet-rich plasma to tame wrinkles and improve the contours of the face, as well as permanent makeup to flatter features. They also help those looking to shed a few pounds with doctor-supervised weight-loss programs that incorporate healthy lifestyle changes, exercise, and medication.
Since opening its doors to the public and closing its portals to other, more dangerous dimensions in 1998, Rochelle Health & Wellness' staff has helped over 10,000 individuals lose weight and feel better about their skin and body. Multiple types of body wraps, including chocolate mint, tummy, and half-body wraps, help shrink waists when paired with detoxifying teas and cardio DVDs. In addition to fat-fighting treatments, aestheticians administer peppermint facials and nonsurgical face-lifts that work to rejuvenate sagging skin.
As a medical aesthetician, Tracy Hendry applies her knowledge of beauty and wellness to almost all of the body's major systems. When dealing with spider veins—offshoots of the circulatory system—the registered nurse and her staff erase unsightly vascular branches from legs during sclerotherapy sessions. Her weight-loss and nutrition programs help digestive systems correct course and strive to increase energy and boost metabolism with B12. Fitness regimens, meanwhile, draw from Tracy's beach-body coaching to address imbalances in the muscular system.
Still, some of Tracy's most popular services are only skin-deep. As clinical director of UnPuckerd Med-Aesthetics, she oversees beautifying procedures ranging from Obagi and Vi peels to applications of jane iredale mineral cosmetics. Her Botox and Juvéderm injections kick wrinkles to the curb, disguising their ages more effectively than enrolling birthday cakes in the witness-protection program.
At Dermatology Realm, Dr. Adam Baker, a board-certified physician who focuses on aesthetic skincare, enhances skin health and beauty with services such as laser treatments, cosmetic injections, and minimally invasive liposuction with ultrasonic waves. He smoothes wrinkles with Botox and Juvéderm injections, generates new collagen with an infrared laser during nonsurgical facelifts, and removes body hair and spider veins with lasers. And no matter what treatment clients need, they can schedule a free consultation with the doctor to determine how to fix their skin problems and debate the merits of cooking with cornstarch.
