At Newtown MediSpa, Dr. David Hendricks and his staff do all they can to keep skin looking healthy. They refresh it with beauty injections such as Botox and Juverderm, revamp it with facials and chemical peels, and streamline it with laser hair removal or waxing. In addition to skin-focused med-spa treatments, they offer traditional spa services such as Swedish massages and the Swedish massage's rival, the Norwegian back scratch.
Rejuvenate Medical Spa, housed in the Women’s Health Center, employs a licensed staff to polish and pamper the body's wrapping paper with restorative skin treatments aimed at promoting youthful textures and vibrant tones. The Vitalize chemical peel is a dermatological treatment enlisted in an arms race to retire pigments, bully blemishes, and eliminate facial lines. The process begins its transforming tale with a facial cleanser, which readies the exterior surfaces of the face for rejuvenation by ridding the skin of airborne bacteria, acquired oils, and obscene alleyway graffiti. Then, after moisturizing the face, a skin specialist uses SkinMedica products to erase acne scars and the cruel signatures of age, time, and Founding Fathers. A final slathering of SPF 30+ sunscreen protects newly revitalized skin cells from sun damage and light rays pretending to be comets.
Erica Breining founded Bellava MedAesthetics & Spa as a place where people could find medical-grade solutions to common skincare problems. Staffed by a team of physicians and aestheticians, her center offers everything from surgical procedures to customized facial treatments, helping combat the creases and blemishes that accompany aging skin. Although turning back time isn't an option, improving the skin's tone and texture can boost clients' confidence while restoring their naturally youthful radiance.

Meet the Technology
Bellava MedAesthetics & Spa's licensed medical aestheticians are highly experienced when it comes to using cutting-edge cosmetic technology. Here are a handful of ways they use it to refresh and beautify the skin:
The crew at Holistic Medical Spa & Laser Center of Westchester works to beautify bodies with an expansive array of surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Along with a team of experienced doctors, board-certified physician Dr. Amar Singh performs cosmetic surgeries and other procedures that range from skincare and facial rejuvenation to Botox and other dermal fillers. Specialists also conduct SmartLipo, Cellulaze, and Elite MPX treatments, which help slim the body, reduce cellulite, and reduce the appearance of veins and unwanted hair, respectively.
In a cozy, brown-shuttered house that you might mistake for someone's home, Dr. Alfred Sofer is changing people's lives with cutting-edge medical technology. Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield's impressive facilities include an imaging room, where Dr. Sofer reveals sun damage and other conditions with the Visia complexion-analysis device. Dr. Sofer also uses the Vectra imaging system?which he discussed on WTNH 8's Connecticut Style program?to simulate the outcome of surgery or the addition of a second head in a realistic, three-dimensional model. He employs the advanced visualization tool to prepare patients for cosmetic and restorative procedures, which he performs either in the center's procedure room or within an accredited surgery center or hospital setting. If you walk up the office's charming, white-and-hardwood staircase to the second floor, you'll find members of Dr. Sofer's medical staff enhancing faces with nonsurgical skincare and laser treatments, including laser hair removal, photofacials, and dermal fillers.
With double board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, Dr. Sofer has experience in the most delicate procedures. His training includes a microvascular and hand-surgery fellowship at the Christine M. Kleinert Institute, the site of the first hand transplant in the United States. His extensive knowledge and caring nature earned him the 2012 Best Cosmetic Surgeon award from readers of Fairfield County Weekly.
Knowledge and techniques from medical traditions ranging from east to west—including Ayurvedic, traditional Chinese, modern, and naturopathic medicine—come together at Integrated Health Center. Dr. K. Pramila Vishvanath, N.D., active in her communities both stateside and overseas, directs the center. Dr. Pram and her staff target the entire body as opposed to individual symptoms, embracing naturopathic medicine to address conditions such as chronic pain, weight loss, and allergies. Integrated Health Center combines analysis with uniquely tailored solutions for each patient, and the staff conducts healing sessions via Skype if a patient's car catches a case of agoraphobia.
