At BODYanew MedSpa Texas, beauty specialists enhance appearances with laser technology, using the concentrated light for various purposes from hair removal to weight-loss management. Prior to any laser treatment, a technician determines the client's aesthetic goals, drawing up a personalized plan of action. Laser light works quickly and is noninvasive, allowing patients to achieve results with little to no downtime. Under the unblinking eye of laser light, waistlines slenderize, skin rejuvenates, and questionable tattoos of a beloved lamp are temporarily blinded. Recently, the company added hydrafacials to its menu of services. Hydrafacials mimic the action of microdermabrasion, but go beyond resurfacing skin to moisturize and nourish it.
Dr. Elizabeth Wanner combines her health-care background with an insatiable interest in medical aesthetic advancements. Wearing her medical doctorate from University of Texas as a paper hat, Dr. Wanner continues to fill her reservoir of knowledge by attending courses and seminars sponsored by Cynosure, a laser manufacturer, and Dr. Stephen Mulholland, a renowned cosmetic plastic surgeon. Armed with this expertise, she and her team wield an arsenal of FDA-approved lasers to zap unsightly veins, body hair, and age spots, and employ medical-grade injectable fillers to plump up slack skin.
Ageless Innovations Skin Care fancifies faces with more than 15 years of experience in tow. The refreshing microdermabrasion kicks off with a facial cleansing to remove grime and stray poppy seeds before a prepeel solution preps skin for its pending pampering. As clients recline on a vibrating mat, the microdermabrasion treatment will clear skin's superficies to reveal a beautiful hidden depth rivaled only by close-reading children's books. Afterward, a vitamin serum and sunscreen boost the recovery process and promote a youthful, vibrant-looking epidermis.
At Royal Aesthetics Laser Clinic and Wellness Retreat, licensed paramedical aesthetician Leslie Jones helps clients find nonsurgical alternatives to invasive cosmetic procedures. At the clinic the team uses dermal heating and radio frequency systems that help clients tighten loose skin, contour waistlines, and minimize the appearance of acne scars and sun damage. The team also supplies Revision and SkinMedica skincare products, which improve skin tone and leave countenances looking youthfully firm.
Since completing his residency in obstetrics and gynecology more than 20 years ago, Dr. James Kern has helped women maintain their inner well-being. Now, with the addition of medical aesthetics, Kern helps men and women alike showcase their outer beauty through both surgical and noninvasive procedures, from Botox to weight loss. Transformations can take place under the doctor-directed HCG diet, which deploys the HCG pregnancy hormone to speedily release unwanted fat cells in both men and women. Through the Body-Jet liposuction system, water flushes out fat to help sculpt and contour the body more effectively than a slip ‘n’ slide souped up with a pressure washer.
