Journey beyond the wood furniture and rich auburn floors of Touch of Class Medspa & Laser Center and into the private chamber of Premier Skincare Solutions, and you'll encounter skin expert Anamaria Saenz. From her tranquil studio, Anamaria wields a gentle hand and advanced technology to both brighten skin and slim down bodies. For her signature facial, she performs a thorough skin analysis to determine which techniques and products will best suit her clients' skin, then pairs her purifying approach with a neck and shoulder massage. She also offers cutting-edge treatments ranging from chemical peels to the stem-cell facial, which incorporates a micro needle roller to boost cell renewal and restore the skin's elasticity.
For the rest of the body, Anamaria offers three tiers of silhouette-slimming technology. Her Body Sculpt wraps expel toxins to help banish fat and firm the skin, and her infrared body wraps up the ante by infusing clients with detoxifying beams of infrared light. For even more noticeable results, Anamaria's clients turn to cavitation liposuction, which breaks up fat cells with ultrasonic energy, leaving them to be swept out through the body's lymphatic system. Whatever the treatment, Anamaria takes time to explain the procedure and recommend after-care regimens to ensure clients know how to get the best results from their service.
A complete medical spa dedicated to rejuvenating, resurfacing, and refreshing the skin of its clients, DermaPhil Laser and Skin Care Center offers safe and effective cosmetic treatments. Customers can bare their hairs to a laser’s all-consuming glory and walk away in a state of ecstatic epilation. Fry the fur from a pair of small body areas, such as noses and brow middles (both are $45 per treatment), or combine one small area—the ears, for example ($45 per treatment)—with a medium-sized body section such as the upper or lower back ($200 per treatment). If you’d rather focus the hair-reductive forces of all half-dozen sessions on one large area, pave the entirety of your arms ($200 per treatment) or scrub your chest and abs ($300 each treatment) until your torso gleams like a recently showered dolphin.
The therapists at Blue Diamond Spa render skincare services, massage therapy, and energy healing. From facials and micropeels to seaweed treatments and body waxing, experienced skincare specialists remove dead skin cells from surfaces and dirt from pores with products from Dermalogica and Jane Iredale. Massage therapists knead out tension and help prevent injury by applying various degrees of pressure, like parents trying to get a perfect child to eat dessert for once. Alternate therapies treat more stubborn imperfections with plastic surgery and Zerona laser treatments that help patients lose weight. Their energy healing, meanwhile, can relieve chronic pain and fatigue. Blue Diamond Spa offers beauty injectables such as Botox and fillers, as well as Carboxy. In addition, there are two Ayurvedic-medicine practitioners on the staff.
It’s a family affair at Contoured Images Plastic Surgery, where Dr. Debra Stafford and her sister Dr. Vivi Stafford beautify clients with advanced cosmetic treatments. Before beginning any service, the doctors spend ample time listening to each patient’s aesthetic goals and concerns and explaining medical jargon. The sisters are especially empathetic when it comes to helping women overcome their self-consciousness, though the services they perform—tummy tucks and brow lifts, Botox injections, and chemical peels—are like the first name Dangerbreath: they work well for both women and men.
Under the guidance of board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon Dr. David Rahimi, Forever Young's staff instills patients with youthfulness by way of laser technology. The IPL photo-rejuvenation treatment erases fine lines, milk-related rosacea, age spots, solar freckles, and distressed capillaries on select areas of the body. During each 30-minute procedure, an aesthetician smoothes cold gel over a desired area while pulses of light burrow into dermises via glass hand piece. Patients experience minimal discomfort and a one- to three-day recovery period. Blemishes and imperfections diminish for several months to several years, depending on the frequency of the treatments and how many sweaters the patient was wearing during the treatments.
Keeping with DSC Laser and Skin Care Center's motto of “wellness with beauty and grace," Dr. Tony Shum leads a specialized team of medical technicians and image coaches who refine clients with skin-smoothing treatments, weight-loss programs, and etiquette classes. Inside the center’s spacious two-story building, the staff blot out blemishes with IPL lasers and other noninvasive treatments, including diamond-peel dermabrasion and Botox, using 3-D skin analysis to customize sessions and create sentient screen savers. The staff also hold monthly seminars on wellness and social graces, and primp the airwaves with a beauty-focused radio show on KMRB Chinese Cantonese Radio.
