For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it?s not enough to simply treat patients? skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa?s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they?re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers?along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches?to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which rely on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and teeth whitening.
The team at Forever Trim Body Sculpting Center performs their new signature noninvasive Coolsculpting and face-lift procedures under the guidance of Dr. Michael Rodriguez. Drawing on a wealth of technology and leadership from Rodriguez, a fellow in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the center?s technicians reshape the body and tighten the skin. With a Zerona LipoLaser system, they emulsify stubborn fat on the waist, hips, and thighs, making it easier to wear skinny jeans or slip into a toaster while playing hide-and-seek. The Ulthera machine, on the other hand, performs a nonsurgical face-lift without significant pain or downtime.
At Rejuvenate Medical Spa, Karen A. Roperti, MD and Paul DiMaio, PA-C harness their combined years of experience in the health field to invigorate clients' skin with the latest anti-aging procedures and spa services. Wielding high-tech lasers, the clinical staff zaps unwanted hairs, veins, sun spots, or miniature planets orbiting the head, and handpicked products from Latisse and SkinCeuticals further smoothen skinscapes. Consultations before any appointment are free of charge, instilling peace of mind in guests readying for their first facial procedure or permanent-makeup session.
Tan Seekers not only has four levels of high-tech tanning beds and standup booths that bronze skin in as little as eight minutes, but also beds that do more than just tan. The Rejuvasun bed, for instance, combines tanning-bed lights with LED lights so it can simultaneously tan skin and boost collagen production to fight the signs of aging. Yet another bed, the Hydration Station, offers clients a steam-enhanced, hydrating sunless tan that dries without streaks. ?
Clients can top off their new looks with self-administered teeth-whitening sessions and, at certain locations, My-Lipo body-sculpting treatments. Complementing the tanning sessions are a variety of products, including a cooling lotion that feels almost as nice on freshly tanned skin as a hug from a snowman.
Acne holds the top spot on the facial hit list for the aestheticians at Clearskin Acne and Skincare Solutions, where an advanced acne-clearing program draws upon the research of respected acne expert Dr. James Fulton to rid faces of blemishes. During the program, aestheticians check in on acne spots every 2–4 weeks, slathering pores with the studio’s own line of client-tailored products or with medical-grade serums from Vivant and PCA Skincare. These regular visits, coupled with advice for at-home regimens, can help rid pores of blemishes, blackheads, and whack-a-moles in as little as 3 months. Though specializing in clearing acne, the beauty crew also treats visages to anti-aging facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and relaxing European facial massages.
The technicians at Laser Body Sculpting of Pittsburgh fight fat. Not just any fat, but the rolls and bulges that don't respond to a healthy diet, active lifestyle, or passive-aggressive notes sewn into bathing-suit linings. To combat these localized adipose deposits, the practitioners treat patients with the Lapex BCS LipoLaser or Zerona laser. Both lasers make use of low-level energy that works to break down fat cells over the course of several sessions—a standard treatment protocol for Lapex includes three treatments over the course of three to six weeks, whereas the Zerona regimen includes three treatments per week for two weeks.
