Hartford HealthCare Medical Group MedSpa is part of one of the largest practices in Connecticut, which brings together more than 250 physicians and medical practitioners to provide care in more than 30 specialties. Here, board-certified plastic surgeons oversee every laser and skincare treatment, which in turn are performed by licensed aestheticians and registered nurses. These services include laser hair removal, laser skin tightening, chemical peels, and permanent makeup. Cosmetic injections such as Botox are performed by the board-certified plastic surgeons. The staff also specializes in adapting these treatments for men, whose skincare, body-hair, and anti-aging concerns may differ from women's.
Board-certified physicians Stephen M. Rouse, M.D., F.A.C.S., Jerilyn S. Allen, M.D., and William T. Culviner, M.D., F.A.C.S. work together to perform safe, advanced cosmetic procedures at The Center for Facial Cosmetics. With years of training and experience backing them up, they guide customers through personal consultations that help them create individually tailored treatment plans. They can also prescribe skincare regimens using Obagi products that can correct unhealthy skin functions instead of simply treating ailments. In seeking out natural beauty looks, the trio performs noninvasive treatments such as chemical peels and hair removal. Also available from the team are non-surgical treatments including Botox, Juvederm, and Restylane, and surgical treatments including rhinoplasty, face lifts, and neck lifts.
La Dermique Skin Rejuvenation & Body Contouring Center?s board-certified surgeons, registered nurses, and master aestheticians keep their fingers on the pulse of emerging technologies they can potentially use in their minimally invasive treatments. Simple aesthetic procedures, such as microdermabrasion and photofacials, rejuvenate dull, aging skin, whereas Botox and dermal fillers temporarily remedy wrinkles for a smooth, supple complexion. Thermilift, one of the center's newer treatments, sends sound waves below the skin?s surface to gently heat tissues and simulate the effects of a face-lift, all without incisions or cheek suspenders. La Dermique?s technicians also wield lasers, including Smartlipo Triplex technology, to permanently destroy fat and remove unwanted body hair and tattoos.

Rita Ammons still doesn't quite believe it. In 1987, she was in a serious car accident that left her suffering with severe pain from nerve damage. A friend recommended reiki as a healing practice, and within time, Ammons found that it worked—the treatments seemed to heal her. Amazed and inspired, she became a master reiki practitioner herself, eventually expanding her expertise into massage and opening her own practice, Back to Harmony Massage & Bodywork.
Now a licensed massage therapist, Ammons offers treatments in 10 modalities, from relaxing Swedish massages to medical massages that help treat ailments including back pain, headaches, and arthritis. She also seeks to heal guests through reiki and to soothe backs with hot-stone massages, which are far more relaxing than hugging a furnace.
