At Isis Skin & Body, medical director Dr. Noha Aboelata grants her patients' desires for beauty with a gentle touch, exclusively performing noninvasive rejuvenation treatments that employ the latest advancements in aesthetic upkeep. The practice is split between laser-based and topical therapies that both remediate existing problems and stimulate of the body's natural healing mechanisms.
Lasers earn their keep and daily continental breakfasts with work in three principle areas: routing unwanted hair, healing nail fungus, and helping to firm and smooth contours all over the body. To ensure topical treatments are safe for all skin types, Dr. Aboelata handpicks the products used in each service, which range from custom acne-scar treatments to eight types of chemical peels. Online forms dotting the company's website encourage curious visitors to start their restorative journey with a free analysis by identifying their skin and body concerns from a list that will help the staff to suggest a fitting course of treatment.
In tribute to its eponymous Egyptian goddess, the white and gold spa takes rich decorating cues from ancient palace-inspired aesthetics and the advice of style-blogging mummies. Columns capped with gold lotuses rise up to the entry hall's high ceiling, and gilded folding screens backdrop chaise lounges covered in bolts of lustrous, eggshell-colored cloth.
Siblings and board-certified surgeons Dr. Lisa Kang and Dr. David Kang share more than the same parents; they work together at Serenity MedSpa, where they both specialize in aesthetic procedures. Beneath shelves of Botox, Latisse, and glo minerals products, Clear + Brilliant laser systems hum. Like R2-D2?s high-school reunion, the rooms are crowded with high-tech machines, including Smartlipo, Cellulaze, Liposonix and Ulthera.
Encore Medspa probably doesn?t receive many noise complaints from its downstairs neighbor, Tiffany & Co. Channeling its inner spa, the second-story office remains quiet and contemplative, allowing guests to lounge on couches in the waiting room, study decorative mirrors on the walls, and use a stove heater in the massage room to grill hot dogs. In this serene setting, medical director Dr. Julia Ankinding and registered nurses Adrianne Gonzalez and Cindy Grounds help restore youth to faces through Botox injections and facials. The medspa also offers advanced services such as Fraxel laser treatments as well as more advanced med spa services such as Fraxel laser treatments and micro laser peels.
As the name suggests, Elite Vein Specialists focuses on one goal: eliminating unwanted spider and varicose veins. Dr. Nicholas Hyde?a Yale-trained, board-certified practitioner?oversees a staff of medical experts as they help clients achieve unblemished skin. They rely on minimally invasive methods to banish unwanted veins, such as sclerotherapy injections or ambulatory phlebectomy. Most treatments are quick and show results within two to three months, ensuring guests can get back to their everyday shorts-modeling routines.
Certified aesthetic nurse specialist Deborah Francesconi of Vein Specialists of Northern California harnesses 25 years of nursing experience combined with continuing education to skillfully fill in concaving epidermises with FDA-approved Botox and Dysport treatments. The 45-minute session will commence with a thorough evaluation, presenting ample time for clients to ask questions, pose concerns, and sing the alphabet backward before Francesconi tends to individual wrinkled areas. Whether treating fine lines and wrinkles with Botox or Dysport, visages will be introduced to small, nearly painless injections that temporarily target sites of sagging skin such as crow's feet, neckbands, or worry lines graffitied between the brows. Though both treatments boast a purified-protein base, Dysport can leave mugs line-free for up to four months, whereas Botox's full results last up to six months and can also help to treat excessive underarm sweating.
Before Dr. Michelle Place—a specialist in aesthetic and cosmetic surgery—began helping clients discover new looks for themselves, she went on a journey of self-discovery herself, receiving her credentials through her own version of the Great American Road Trip. Born in South Africa, Dr. Place studied biology in California, attained her medical degree in Texas, and completed a surgical internship in Virginia before moving back to the Golden State to complete general surgery and plastic surgery residencies. At her private practice, the board-certified plastic surgeon and her team enhance clients’ faces and bodies with procedures ranging from breast augmentation and liposuction to face-lifts, laser hair removal, and eyelid surgery to make the eyes appear younger in lieu of covering them with funky dorm-wall tapestries.
