Keeping client satisfaction at the forefront of its mission, the Avalon Med Spa and Laser Center recently underwent a complete overhaul that included acquiring the award-winning G.M. Collin product line, as well as a new therapist, physician, and staff. A medical director and board certified-internist leads a team of professionals, including one member with certification in aesthetic medicine, and special training in medical informatics. The wide-reaching expertise of its staff enables Avalon Med Spa to deliver a varied menu of aesthetic services that includes everything from laser hair removal to teeth whitening, Botox, and body wraps.
Devoted to bettering the patient experience, the center also nestles clients into a relaxing environment replete with plush couches and a waiting lounge done up in warm, neutral tones. Hardwood floors lead clients back to a private treatment room, where the elegant décor relaxes with furnishings such as draped, olive-green curtains, frosted sconces, and a wall waterfall that trickles out droplets harvested from the fountain of youth.:m]]
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Joseph J. Castellano leads a staff of nurses and aestheticians in boosting patients' confidence and youthful looks with a technologically enhanced repertoire of surgical and nonsurgical treatments. Clients await their transformations by taking a seat in Castellano Cosmetic Surgery Center's warmly lit lobby, sinking into plush brown sofas plopped onto polished hardwood floors. Comfort escorts patients all the way through their aesthetic-enhancement services, whether they have tummies tucked or breasts lifted or reduced in one of the pristine surgery rooms, or enjoy the skin-remaking effects of photorejuvenation or a chemical peel in a private treatment room. The center's skilled aestheticians perform makeup and skincare services using a stable of medical-grade skin products from manufacturers including Obagi and Neocutis, targeting skin concerns such as blemishes and signs of aging such as wrinkles, parchment cuts, and dinosaur bites.
Weight & Body Solutions' experienced physicians employ technologically enhanced weight-reduction techniques and more traditional nutrition-based programs to help clients melt away unwanted fat and reveal svelte silhouettes. Patients relax in the comfortable atmosphere of a private room as they discuss their beauty goals with informed counselors, asking questions about their various treatment options, which include weekly plans enhanced with thorough exams and energizing vitamin shots along with medical treatments such as tumescent liposuction. Liposuction is done under local anesthesia using a small cannula and requires very little downtime, sending patients back to work within 24 to 48 hours—just in time to sport sleek silhouettes for Risky Business–themed casual Fridays.
Led by licensed paramedical aesthetician Ariel Starr, Salon Du Soleil Medi-Spa's staff aims to send their clients home pampered, rejuvenated, and with head-turning new looks. The specialists have honed their skills in a variety of areas, sculpting new hair designs or donning flawlessly applied war paint as they battle unwanted fuzz with waxing services. The spa pamperings, which also include manicures and massages, pair with medical treatments to fully make over bods with methods including microdermabrasion, which blasts away signs of age. Salon Du Soleil's staff works to create a clean facility by completely sterilizing equipment and only telling PG-rated knock-knock jokes.
Board-certified Dr. Jennifer Landy of The Landy Center for Plastic Surgery specializes in facial cosmetic procedures that create more youthful expressions and appearances. Before performing blepharoplasty—Italian for "eyelid lift"—Dr. Landy consults with patients to discuss the treatment, explain after-care procedures, and answer questions. A light application of local anesthetic prepares the eyelid for a tiny incision in its natural crease, which gives the doctor access to excess skin while allowing for minimal scarring after healing sets in. The 30-minute outpatient session leaves patients with reduced over-eye skin folds, and makes it possible for eyes to display their colors as prominently as flags on strike or a peacock in the stocks.
Academic Alliance's cadre of doctors and technicians wields both years of experience and an eye for dermal aesthetics to augment each client's natural beauty. Today's offered treatments utilize different modalities to smooth out the face's many rogue wrinkles, using motivated proteins and chemicals to clobber the creases of time. Fifteen units of Botox, injected just below the skin, wipe out lines between brows with minimally uncomfortable ease, smoothly concealing the penalties of protracted frowning contests for up to four months. Alternatively, the Jessner chemical peel exfoliates the deepest clogged pores, purging accumulated microdebris, diminishing age-spot melanin gangs, and reducing fine lines that have been acting out of line.
