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.
The specialists at Skyn Clinic and Apothecary take a French approach to fostering clear complexions, meaning they place a big emphasis on proper skincare in the long run and don't perform services that provide only a quick fix. Botanical and essential-oil-based ingredients furnish services and products, including the spa's own custom skincare line, Skyn Clinic Custom Blends. Skyn Clinic uses only silk eyelash extensions and cruelty-free mink eyelash extensions harvested by carefully brushing minks for their loose hairs. A highly trained medical aesthetician applies extensions lash by lash and uses a soft collagen pad to protect the bottom lashes, specialized glue to adhere each strand to an original lash, and two tweezers in case one pair gets stage fright. Each semipermanent extension can last up to two months with regular showering, swimming, and exercising. Skyn Clinic medical aestheticians also provide full-body waxing, Viora cellulite reduction, fat reduction treatments, and skin tightening, as well as Xtreme facial and nonsurgical facelifts.
At Harmoni Med Spa, the staff, led by licsensed aesthetician Tina McGuire and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Al Rosenthal, make sure that decisions to choose a spa treatment are not driven by hard-sell tactics. The team offers a wide variety of facials and peels, including diamond microdermabrasions, Botox, non-surgical facelifts, enzyme peels, and more. Complementing the services are a selection of high-quality products by PCA and B. Kamins. The friendly and expert staff also ensure that patients are well informed about their skin and how to treat it so that the results last.
A division of Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery—run by double-board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Burke Robinson—Visage Skin Care provides less invasive means for facial makeovers. Aesthetician Heather Davis draws on more than 15 years of experience as she treats her clients to skincare services such as exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments, laser hair removal, and chemical peels that soften the appearance of skin damage. Davis also offers high-quality cleansers from SkinCeuticals and Revisions for proper at-home care, as well as mineral makeup that’s gentler on skin than over-the-counter brands or an exfoliation that consists of jogging through a sandstorm.
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.
