After his residency at Albany Medical College, medical director Dr. David LaMond decided to continue his love for teaching by making patient education one of the core principles of Blue Sky MD's approach to total patient care. That's why Dr. LaMond and his team of physicians combine in-depth consultations, online resources, and medical vocabulary quizzes with their services, ensuring that patients undergoing supervised weight-loss treatments understand the results of body-composition analyses and how custom exercise and nutrition regimens work.
Blue Sky MD also follows the idea that overall well-being is not only about being physically healthy but also about being emotionally healthy. Thus, counselors work side by side with physicians and liberally compliment patients on the shininess of their shoes. The clinic further helps patients feel good about themselves by offering aesthetic services, such as chemical peels, beauty injections, noninvasive body contouring, and laser skin treatments.
Aesthetics Medical Spa combines the clinical expertise of a med spa with the soothing ambiance of a day spa, resulting in a space that is at once relaxing and rejuvenating. Owner Beth Brinson, a family nurse practitioner, helms a team of aestheticians and licensed professionals who build healthy complexions by infusing each of their deep-cleansing, anti-aging, and teen facials with restorative moisturizers, exfoliants, and calming botanicals. When treating more serious concerns such as acne scars, technicians smooth over skin with noninvasive laser technology or cosmetic injectables such as Botox and Juv?derm. Massage therapists extend the med spa?s rejuvenating effects to the full body with four modalities that help flush out toxins and eliminate stress.
Founded by Doctors Tahl N. Humes and W. Jason Martin, Vitahl Medical Aesthetics pairs safe and professional medical procedures with a tranquil, spa-like environment. Medical-grade lasers assist the doctors and their team of registered nurses, physicians' assistants, and laser specialists in sculpting the body, rejuvenating the skin, or lessening the appearance of scars, sun damage, and tattoos bearing the name of the wrong mother. The staffers also help to remove wrinkles with injectable solutions, create lusher lashes with doses of Latisse, and battle stubborn acne with medical peels.

Upon checking in to Suraj Spa and Salon, clients can don a plush robe and spend a few minutes in the infrared sauna. It's one way for them to literally warm up for the botanically based treatments that follow. Perhaps the most impressive of these are the spa's facials, since they make skin glow using everything from naturally derived Privai skincare and LED light to the old "lantern earrings" trick. In the salon, clients entrust their cuts and colors to stylists who trained at the esteemed Aveda Institute and who engage in annual continuing education in New York City. Even the spa's decor suggests organic beauty, since earth-toned hues blanket the walls and wood planks line the floors. White lights twinkle through the gauzy curtain that encloses the lounge, where a blossom-shaped chandelier drizzles light upon couches that surround a brick fireplace.
The staff at Cadence's Body Contouring & Health Spa combines the technology of med-spa treatments with natural services such as organic manicures, custom massages, and traditional waxing. Its five anti-aging facials and four body-contouring treatments benefit from advances in the spa industry such as infrared saunas, Endermologie machines, and LED phototherapy.
