At Fountain of Youth Med Spa, Dr. Esteban Pena leads a team of skin specialists to renew sagging, wrinkled, or splotched patches of skin with highly advanced therapies and tools. During tattoo-removal sessions, short pulses of a Q-switched laser dissolve subdermal fraternity letters or reminders of a loved one’s name with minimal pain and less than a 5% chance of scarring. Laser-based facials zero in on unwanted hyperpigmentation and birthmarks, and eMatrix skin-rejuvenation treatments employ gentle radio-frequency emissions to remove acne scars or blemishes. Patients treat below-the-shoulder areas with cellulite-banishing VelaShape contouring, laser hair removal performed by a skin specialist, spider-vein removal, or relaxing massage therapy.
Amy Tobias and Cathy Murray, aestheticians and co-owners of Transforming Techniques Salon and Medical Spa, each bring 17 years of beauty-biz experience to their treatment chairs. They and their team lavish complexions with a wide range of skin services, from antibacterial and oxygen facials to slightly more intensive chemical peels and wrinkle-fighting injections. Stylists tend to men's, women's, and kids' locks, keeping ends fresh and hairdos manageable, and techs groom both natural and artificial nails. Massage therapists knead stress from tense muscles, and depilation experts use wax to whisk unwanted body hair away from faces, legs, and plates of nachos.
A tiger stares hungrily at a Changing Colors Salon customer. The cat can’t eat them, though—its face resides in the artwork of an airbrush manicure. Since 1988, the nail salon has brightened extremities with handiwork ranging from traditional manicures and pedicures, powered by OPI polish, to funkier looks such as glitter french tips, acrylic nails, and zebra-print designs. Beyond nail art, the salon tends to skin, with waxing, microdermabrasion, and rejuvenating treatments that combat aging more effectively than engineering the salon clocks to run backwards.
The diverse team of medical professionals, massage therapists, and aestheticians at Ageless Beauty M.D. helps limit the ill effects Father Time has on bodies. They use DermaSweep microdermabrasion technology, skin rejuvenation treatments, and Botox injections to smooth out wrinkles and erase dark spots. TruSculpt body contouring treatments rely on ultrasonic energy to reduce fat and slim down physiques without requiring downtime. Aches and pains fade into a distant memory after massage sessions, which are available in an array of modalities such as reflexology, Swedish, deep tissue, and aromatherapy. The team also specializes in permanent makeup.
At EyeShop Optical, board-certified optometrist Dr. Cynthia S. Sayers gets clients eye-healthy with a slate of traditional and advanced services. In addition to getting corneas up to 20/20 with vision tests, she also scopes out potential eye maladies with full retinal evaluations, eye-disease diagnoses, and treatments.
After exams, clients can grab a complimentary cup of coffee and browse the shop's collection of more than 500 frames, many of which come from the workshops of high-end designers such as Dior and Yves St. Laurent. The icing on the cake is the office's Nintendo Wii, which folks can play before their appointment.
Aesthetic procedures benefit from cutting-edge medical expertise at Revitalize MD MedSpa and Laser Center. As the center's medical directors, Drs. Tiffany Hall and Amina Husain rely on their extensive experience in fields ranging from obstetrics to reconstructive surgery. However, they also offer nonsurgical methodologies as they help clients obtain their desired complexion or body shape. They accomplish this by enlisting the aid of modern advancements in aesthetic technology and skincare products.
Using the Candela GentleYAG and Alexandrite cosmetic laser systems, technicians can improve skin tone by zapping unsightly stubble or sealing noticeable spider veins. The low-power YOLO Curve laser contours the body by shrinking stubborn fat deposits, and VelaShape technology accomplishes a similar goal by bombarding adipose tissues with a combination of bipolar radio frequencies and infrared light energy. While permanent makeup procedures can create timeless, natural-looking eyebrows or eyeliner, the med spa can also use a Q-switched laser system to remove tattoos.
Beyond medically assisted therapies, Revitalize MD MedSpa and Laser Center also pampers visitors with an array of more traditional spa treatments. Alternatively, aestheticians can restore skin by performing facials with clinical-strength products by companies such as Obagi.
