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.
Led by Perfect Skin Solutions medical director Dr. Kannan Sundar, licensed medical aesthetician Peggy Schremser restores or maintains clients' youthful looks with exfoliating chemical peels, dermaplaning, and micro-needling sessions. She employs high-potency products such as a peptide-booster serum that combats fine lines and a vitamin-C "super serum" that can protect skin from sun damage, pollution, or windburn while flying around Metropolis. Schremser is also certified in the application of permanent makeup and eyelash extensions.
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.
New Health Centers consists of more than 400 health-care practitioners across the country, each working to alleviate corporeal discomfort with natural techniques. Doctors work in conjunction with experienced practitioners to soothe aches, pains, and lawn-gnome infestations.
New U Med Spa's director, Dr. Jawdat Abboud, and his crew of board-certified cosmetic surgeons fill facial crevices with safe and effective Botox treatments. The FDA–approved solution (a $16/unit value) is gently injected into unwanted face wrinkles, transforming fine-lined mugs into visages that look as youthful as a newly hatched pop star. The natural, protein-based blend is designed to plump collapsed lines for up to four months while blocking nerve signals and sending contracting muscles on vacation. Though the quick procedure results in minimal discomfort and no necessary downtime, the doctor may apply an ice pack or numbing cream to desensitize the area. Supplemental units of Botox facilitate larger treatment areas or allow for multiple visits to create longer-lasting effects.
Dr. Timothy Zelko, a board-certified physician with six years of liposuction-specific experience, oversees the fat-cell-siphoning procedures at ZBodySculpt. After decades as a board-certified physician, Dr. Zelko turned his focus to liposuction—and discovered that despite the huge demand for the slimming procedure, people often avoided it out of fear, discomfort, cost, and allergies to doctors. This realization prompted him to seek out alternative forms of fat reduction, and Dr. Zelko now treats his patients with minimally invasive and noninvasive procedures that require little to no downtime, reduced cost, and local anesthesia for fewer complications.
