Aesthetic Laser Academy has two kinds of clients. The first: those who walk through the doors in search of professional med-spa services, such as chemical peels and laser hair removal. The second: those in search of sweet, sweet knowledge.
The staff caters to both. Cofounder Michelle De Leon (the Academy's resident "laser diva") and medical directors Dr. Ann Nolen and Dr. Dustin Ray lead a staff of laser specialists, educators, and aestheticians who tend to clients with high-powered tools and elixirs. They also help create more aesthetic professionals, offering training programs for new students, classes for people looking to add new skills, and a night course that lets students fit their education into already-busy lives.
Jami Miller did not take care of her skin. As a youth, she struggled with acne and spent her summers basting in baby oil as she scooped up UV rays with sun reflectors. The resulting scars and sun damage inspired her to pursue a career in aesthetics and eventually open her own spa, North Texas Clinical Skin Care. There, Jami and her team specialize in advanced anti-aging treatments, using nonsurgical skin tightening and LED therapy to counteract the abuse that results from exposure to the sun or insult comics with degrees in dermatology. Locally produced SkinBorn products power the clinic’s specialty facials with cosmeceutical, paraben-free formulations that interact with skin on a cellular level.
During any course of treatment, clients can document their skin's progress with the spa's imaging system. Cameras magnify skin 800 times, and freeze-frame technology captures images of the skin, which the clinic then catalogs so clients can follow their improvement or finally prove that their nose is constantly rotating.
With more than 14 years of internal medicine expertise under her stethoscope, Dr. Janna Masser and her certified staff devote themselves to shrinking circumferences and smoothening sagging skin with noninvasive technologies. Dr. Masser also focuses on specialized treatments for women, including menopausal therapies, breast consultations, and stiletto sharpening.
Recently nominated Best Spa in Addison by Addison magazine, A Feel Good Experience Spa employs a highly trained staff whose aim is to make every spa service soothing to both body and mind. They dole out a range of skincare treatments and specialized products to erase flaws and enhance beauty. Facials rely on Dermalogica products?an established brand free of common irritants?and sometimes incorporate light therapy to brighten skin and improve its health. Like the cover of a romance novel, the spa menu focuses primarily on skin, but the staff believes in a holistic approach to care. They infuse some body wraps with aromatherapy treatments, emphasize the all-over benefits of massages, and offer foot reflexology for balance and energy.
