Led by owner Kimberly Thompson, an entrepreneur, mother, writer, and former model, the clinical staff at Shangri-la Medispa helps busy clients to look and feel their best. A physician tends to both their inner and outer needs by administering cosmetic fillers and overseeing the weight-management program. An experienced medical aesthetician fine-tunes appearances with laser and microcurrent treatments, chemical peels, and waxing. The medispa has also developed its own product line, Shangri-La Skin By Kim. The team also includes a registered nurse who can advise patients on their treatment options or answer any questions, from ?how much downtime is required?? to ?is the human appendix an extraterrestrial tracking device??
The crew performs services in whimsically themed treatment rooms filled with shabby-chic tables and dressers. Clients can relax in spaces decorated with such touches as a colorful London sign and lamps that resemble the Eiffel Tower and an antique streetlamp. In the black-and-white facial room, a picture of Marilyn Monroe glamorously oversees skincare treatments.
Double-board-certified cosmetic laser surgeon Dr. Raul Rodriguez has garnered a fair share of press for his pioneering work in fat reduction, including numerous articles in Modern Luxury, features on local news networks, and a 2003 appearance on 20/20. In his more than two decades of experience, he has helped thousands of patients extricate unwanted fat stores with mesotherapy, an injection that consists a special combination of medications designed to make fat cells shrink in size. This results in a reduction in the size of the injected area. As well as bodies, Dr. Rodriguez tends to faces as well as bodies with nonsurgical skin tightening, fat removal from jowls, and fat transfers to restore youthful volume.
At Total Med Solutions, medical director Dr. Stockton Roberts and company offer a wealth of beautifying solutions to both men and women. Noninvasive laser services reduce fat and blemishes, and hormone therapy helps to balance bodies without forcing them into an apprenticeship as a seesaw. During facials and skin treatments, Ole Henriksen products restore complexions with African red tea and extracts from walnuts, black currants, and antioxidant-rich blueberries.
