Sand-colored beech-wood flooring and ocean-blue walls give Lawton Advanced Skincare & Laser Center’s modern med spa a beachy feel, beginning visitors' relaxation experience as soon as they step in the door. Away from the front waiting area, aestheticians rejuvenate complexions, ridding skin of tell-tale signs of aging such as sun spots and fine lines with a repertoire of solutions that vary in intensity, including Obagi and Skinceuticals skincare products, medical facials, dermal-filler injections, and Lutronic eCO2 fractional-laser treatments. Exteriors can be further beautified as skin transforms from pallid hues to sunkissed glows with UV-bed tanning sessions; the gentlemen-centric facial reveals a healthy glow beneath layers of clogged pores and dead skin cells covering up hidden stashes of Xbox games.
At InShapeMD, doctors shepherd clients through wellness programs designed to help them feel younger and increase their energy. Exams and lab work provide the medical team with baseline data at the start of the signature Count Down Diet—a guided, one-on-one support and nutrition regimen that can be supplemented with injections of vitamin B12, lipotropics, or big-band music, all of which are designed to boost energy. Hormone-replacement programs for both women and men aim to restore focus, wellness, and libido by adding hormone-replacement for testosterone injections, creams, and troches.
The aestheticians at BodyTrends specialize in nonsurgical Electrospa treatments that have toned and beautified the bodies of beauty-pageant contestants. By stimulating muscles with gentle electrical currents, technicians can mimic the effects of a face-lift or breast lift without ever breaking the scalpel out of its emergency glass. Lasers erase unwanted hair, veins, cellulite, and tattoos, and facial services banish blemishes while adorning features with MNA and mineral cosmetics. For feelings of inner peace, BodyTrends' massage therapists capture tension from bodies and release it deep in the woods to plague overly frivolous nymphs.
