Dr. Fauzia Khan has spent more than half of her 20 years in the medical field steeped in the world of cosmetic facial enhancement. A board-certified physician, she draws on both her medical and artistic side when performing cosmetic procedures. She also stays attuned to emerging technologies. Radio frequencies combined with pulsed-light technology—as seen on the Rachael Ray Show and other national outlets—tightens the face so it’s less likely to fall off, and FDA-approved lasers remove hair and rejuvenate skin across the body. When lasers aren’t the best solution for skin reconditioning, Vibraderm microdermabrasion wands speed up the exfoliation process through vibrating, single-use paddles that also stimulate circulation. Alternatively, injectables such as Botox, Dysport, and Restylane reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the face.
At Babyface Skincare Studio, aestheticians specialize solely on one section of the body: the face. Their facials create healthy, glowing complexions; some of the facials even use machines, such as the firming gold-charged electrodes used during the 23K Golden Spoon facial. In other cases, facials rely solely on acne-fighting cleansers and soothing moisturizers. The studio also offers eyelash extensions, to further pamper newly brightened visages.
At Forever Young Aesthetic Center, technicians wield a range of powerful lasers to perform aesthetic treatments: Fraxel units restore youthful appeal, and specialized Cutera lasers prevent the growth of unwanted hair. The team also employs other technology such as Botox, Juvéderm, and Latisse elixirs to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and lengthen lashes, respectively. Meanwhile, the reception staff entertains guests with magazines, cups of tea, and open-mic opportunities in the waiting area.
Skincare is J&S Beauty Inc.'s specialty. Owner and trilingual beauty guru Susie Yu helms a staff of eight, including licensed aestheticians and massage therapists who relax and rejuvenate by blending an all-natural philosophy with the latest in safe cosmetic technologies. Classic facials keep pores clean and healthy, whereas other treatments—such as microdermabrasion, derma-therapeutic sessions, or LHE laser whitening—focus specifically on reducing wrinkles, acne, or pigmentation. Body treatments, on the other hand, such as Thermo Cool help slim waistlines by toning muscle, burning fat, and smoothing cellulite.
Soft, neutral colors permeate a decor that marries tranquil tones with clinical sensibilities. Private treatment rooms remain clean and orderly while enticing patrons with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and some even boast showers to rinse away sweat built up in the steam room and the remnants of pre-appointment food fights.
The medical team at Yepez & Contreras Life Fitness Chiropractic and Acupuncture believe the best doctor is the body itself. Relying solely on drug-free and noninvasive techniques, they tap into the body's ability to recover from common aches and chronic ailments. Treatments such as spinal adjustments and acupuncture rebalance the body's internal energies, and their massages make patients feel as calm as a mountain lake filled with decaf coffee.
