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.
Cheri Herold, owner of Fountain of Youth Aveda Salon Spa, wields a lifetime of beauty-industry experience to motivate her multitalented staff to exceed client expectations. Plant-based products fuel facials, massages, and hair treatments with the anti-aging properties of lavender, sandalwood, and other pure, sustainably sourced herbs and flowers. Fountain of Youth also operates a salon apprenticeship program, which provides 2,000 hours of on-the-job training to promising young cosmetologists or ambitious mannequins.
While successfully sculpting bodies at Premier Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Vassar Heil felt the need to further help patients reach their aesthetic goals, which is why he founded Acqua Blu Medical Spa. The office blends the tranquility of a day spa with advanced, noninvasive med-spa services, from the Visia digital skin analysis to dermal fillers and laser hair removal, performed by a trained team of physician assistants, registered nurses, trained laser technicians, and aestheticians. Robe-and-slipper-clad guests can wander through the blue and white spa?swirling with the scent of lavender and the sounds of water bubbling over rocks?before retreating into private treatment rooms. Each tranquil space boasts a living-room-like setting complete with European-inspired furnishings, neutral hues, and dim light flickering from lamps being held by the Partridge family.
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.
