Dan Schildgen, owner and general manager of Calista Skin & Laser Center, has put together a skilled team of medical professionals that specializes in nonsurgical aesthetic treatments. Medical director Ann Nolen, DO, is not only board certified in both family-practice and regenerative medicine, but also a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. Dr. Nolen oversees the work of a certified senior laser technician with more than 15 years of experience, a registered nurse who helps people reach their weight-loss goals, and a highly trained laser-tattoo-removal expert who erases evidence of past fascinations with unicorns.
Aside from its knowledgeable beauty mavens, the center sets itself apart with some of the most advanced technology available. The eMax system's elōs technology combines bipolar radiofrequency, light, and diode-laser energies to target wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and unwanted hair. The eMatrix sublative rejuvenation system addresses acne scars and lesions, whereas ReFirme skin-tightening treatments create smoother, firmer appearances. The crew can also reduce fat and cellulite with VelaShape body contouring, giving clients enough confidence to stroll the beach in bikinis or participate in their offices’ Hot Pants Days.
Aestheticians and laser technicians come together for the common good of skin at Skin Studio & Laser Boutique, combining their expertise to rid the body of unwanted hair, visible veins, and hyper-pigmented or dulled complexions. After a consultation and a skin analysis, aestheticians customize facials to each client’s needs, helping clear acne, treat rosacea, fight aging, and unfreeze funny faces. They also apply custom airbrush tans to camouflage cellulite and stretch marks and enhance eyes with lash tabbing—a process that adds length and volume to natural lashes and lasts about a week. When not targeting problem follicles or splotchy capillaries, laser technicians calibrate their equipment to hone in on sagging skin, using the painless, light-based technology to increase production of collagen and elastin and restore lost firmness.
The Clinical Skin Care Center Med Spa currently operates under the medical direction of Dr. David Azouz, a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience performing cosmetic surgery on the face and body. He and their staff perform cosmetic laser procedures that use radio frequency, light energy, and other technologies to target signs of aging on the face or body, as well as acne, acne scarring, and cellulite. The microdermabrasion treatments gently remove the topmost layer of skin to reveal softer skin, while also softening lines and fight acne.
Across the nation, Sona MedSpa's staff beautify a range of skin types with the gentle touch of Alma lasers. Sun damage, unwanted hair, and spider veins dissolve under the beams of these cosmetic lasers, which can also resurface complexions. Their lasers also power tattoo removal services, which free skin from unwanted ink. They've got Botox and dermal fillers at their disposal, too.
A member of the medical community for more than 25 years, Dr. John Pickel uses his experience and continued education to guide the erasure of skin imperfections at Texas Vein Center. His team wields noninvasive lasers to reduce hair or spider veins obscuring the body. They also fend off swelling adipose tissue and charmless dimples with sessions of acoustic-wave therapy, which has the dual purpose of building skin elasticity and forming an impermeable bulletproof shield. Medical professionals imbue faces with the youth of yesteryear with anti-aging procedures including injections, photo rejuvenation, and facial treatments that pull from the Obagi medical skincare line.
