Fine Skin Dermatology and Medical Spa director Renuka H. Bhatt, MD keeps a close eye on her staff of board-certified dermatologists, aestheticians, and physicians' assistants as they work to foster skin rejuvenation. Like schoolchildren solving a word problem about peaches, techs trained in IPL hair removal deftly subtract fuzz, and visages in need of a pick-me-up can turn to a range of dermal fillers and UV-light treatments. Throughout their myriad treatments, skin specialists employ skin-preserving product lines such as NeoStrata, Pevonia, Kinerase, and Obagi.
From facials to microdermabrasion, the staff behind The MedSpa at Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Associates enhance appearances with a wide spectrum of treatments. Their medspa offerings include chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and beauty injections, which combat dermal imperfections and signs of aging without going under the knife. Licensed aestheticians and techs conduct all medspa treatments, and are able to answer all questions from patients about the treatments, while also giving a pop quiz about content from the waiting room's magazines.
Eterna MedSpa's dedicated staff of doctors and beauty specialists provides clients with an array of customized, medically-based services. The treatment will begin with a skin consultation in which an experienced face mechanic checks epidermises for compatibility with the treatment and worn down fanbelts causing nasolabial folds to squeak with every smile. Faces continue to garner attention with the dermaplaning service (a $100 value), which exfoliates dead skin cells lounging along the outer layers of the skin. Utilizing a sharp blade and a steady hand, the pain-free process is designed to shave off dull skin cells and fine hairs while requiring no downtime. To complement newly silkified complexions, skull blankets are finished with a sunscreen application infused with liquefied compliments on your newly glowing visage.
Dr. Amjad Safvi has spent more than 15 years in the medical field focusing on vascular issues, particularly varicose and spider veins. He now oversees Advanced Vein Treatment & Cosmetic Center, where he and his caring staff treat patients to complimentary consultations before administering laser, radio-frequency, and sclerotherapy vein treatments along with a host of other aesthetic treatments. The facility’s laser collection, the high-tech cherry on its med-spa sundae, allows the staff to showcase hair-removal, anti-aging, and facial-rejuvenation treatments that round out a crowded roster that includes SkinMedica chemical peels, Botox injections, and fillers that can last up to five years.

Though having a board-certified doctor perform one's beauty treatments can make one feel at ease, having two can allay even the strongest of apprehensions. Dr. Khaja Asadullah and Dr. Ayesha Akbar both dispense body-sculpting services, bio-identical horomone-replacement treatments, IV nutritional therapy, and facial-filler injections with the expertise that earned them certification in age-management medicine. Their combined knowledge of this and preventive medicine helps them to fulfill myriad wellness desires, such as shedding years from patients' faces, pounds from their midsection, nutritional deficiencies, and mind-controlling xenos from their scalp.
