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 relies on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and massage to help defend against cellulite and assist patients in reshaping their figures.
Like any special-effects company, Derm FX specializes in seemingly impossible transformations. Their effects, however, are meant to be tangible and lasting. The med spa uses technology such as an Eclipse Q Switch laser to repair the skin and remove troublesome blemishes, even if they happen to be tattoos. They also administer chemical peels and collagen-induction therapy, both of which aim to reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and other signs of damage. Though the majority of their services are geared toward fading unwanted imperfections, the staff also augments appearances with permanent makeup.
The Lutronic Spectra laser system is the key to treatments at tattoo-removal studio Disappearing Ink. The system operates at four different wavelength ranges, effectively targeting a wide range of ink colors. It's beams break down pigments in the skin, allowing the body to then naturally pass the ink. The process is minimally painful; many patients compare it to the snap of a rubber band on the skin.
Though board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Jeneby specializes in transforming patients' appearances, his own face may look very familiar. The diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery has shared his extensive knowledge of both adult and pediatric plastic-surgery procedures with stations such as ABC News and KENS 5, and he was named one of the best area plastic surgeons by S.A. Scene. Dr. Jeneby also offers expertise as a national trainer on topics such as Lipotherme, SmartLipo body sculpting, and DOT therapy laser skin resurfacing.
At the equally acclaimed Plastic & Cosmetic Center, Dr. Jeneby and his staff perform surgical and noninvasive procedures ranging from rhinoplasties to SmoothShapes laser cellulite treatments. The facility houses a convenient onsite lab for blood draws and a concierge room where family members can watch television or their own DVDs from home. Clients can head upstairs to Spa Black to be treated with lasers that remove unwanted hair, banish pigmented lesions, or read barcode versions of Shakespeare.
The award-winning Dr. Dinakar Golla, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Golla Center for Plastic Surgery and Sacred Image Med Spa, has been recognized by universities, Merck, and the national medical honor society Alpha Omega Alpha. When he's not lecturing, publishing articles, and teaching other surgeons to perfect their skills and properly quote medical dramas, Dr. Golla joins his team to help patients look and feel their best. Traditional surgical options, such as rhinoplasty and tummy tucks, join injectables and laser treatments to comprise a full menu of rejuvenating services.
East Side Laser Center's owner, Bridget Miller, keeps current with skin-perfecting techniques and technologies and has compiled a collection of services that employs lasers, peels, microdermabrasion, and intense pulsed light. Bridget's lasers excise the body of unwanted accouterments such as hair or a tattooed map of the place you used to hide your Junior Mints. Photofacials and peels reduce age-related blemishes such as wrinkles and age spots and inspire skin to regenerate in a younger-looking incarnation.
