Dr. Kendra A. Cole, a specialist in medical dermatology, and her partner, aesthetic physician Dr. Louis D. Cole, help patients enhance their outward appearance with state-of-the-art treatments. Less invasive body-contouring options include VelaShape, Thermage, and Ulthera ultrasound skin tightening, which can result in svelte figures that easily shimmy into packed elevators and tuck behind trees during hide-and-seek.
A Vanta's Hair Restoration Clinic can add curls to hair with perms or remove them with Japanese hair straightening treatments. The stylists there can also cut, color, and condition hair, and they can install weaves and extensions. But the clinic's most important work may be giving clients full heads of hair to begin with; it specializes in non-surgical hair replacement for people with alopecia, cancer, burns, trichotillomania, and other conditions.
Atlanta Permanent Cosmetics owner Melissa Vanzandt and her crew of certified technicians aim to eliminate the morning makeup hassle by anointing features with permanent cosmetics. A blessing to people with cosmetic allergies or vision problems, permanent cosmetics add discreet pigment to eyebrows, eyelids, and lips to help enhance the natural beauty of each client and return faces to neglected Mrs. Potato Head dolls. Meanwhile, specialists further illuminate facial beauty with speedy LED teeth whitening and lush mink lash extensions.
Led by experienced and well-trained MD Dr. Robert Golden, a member of several medical associations, The Golden Clinic's team of aestheticians uses its expert training to coax out each patient's best features with an arsenal of cosmetic treatments. The clinic's mostly painless treatments, such as microdermabrasion, demonstrate the virtue of noninvasive beautification, and sessions of Botox, Juvederm, and chemical peels can help clients look younger without requiring them to take a refresher course on effective ways to ask to stay up later. The staff also boasts proficiencies in body treatments that include liposuction, spider-vein treatment, and hormone-replacement therapy. Latisse treatments add length to eyelashes for winks that are extra enticing, like low-risk, high-yield bonds baked into a cupcake. Dr. Golden has buffed up his professional bona fides in medicine and surgery for more than 15 years, and he is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.
For more than 40 years, the doctors and staff at Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery have worked to beautify clients inside and out with cosmetic plastic-surgery procedures. The center's three board-certified plastic surgeons don't just fulfill the required minimum to form a surgeon folk-rock band—they also furnish the diverse specialties necessary to lavish their patients with services ranging from facelifts and rhinoplasty to liposuction, tummy tucks, and breast augmentation. Meanwhile, an in-house anti-aging physician treats hormone imbalances and coaches guests on losing pounds through the hCG diet. The team also bolsters patients' appearances with nonsurgical procedures including facial injectables, laser hair and tattoo removal, and microdermabrasion treatments that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores stretched by spelunking freckles.
The interior of Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery conjures a sense of serenity with its rich wood floors complemented by walls in quiet earth tones such as forest, sand, and ozone layer. Contemporary artwork hangs over unimposing furniture in the waiting room, and a more formal reception space beckons visitors with pastoral art and an oriental area rug.
