Dr. Mike Foster, a board-certified surgeon, keeps a cool-headed watch over the team at DeSoto Laser Aesthetics as it delivers a roster of rejuvenating med-spa services. Brandishing late-model lasers and Victorian-era laser cozies, the medical aestheticians blast away all manner of blemish, from spider veins and body hair to tattoos and nail fungus, to treat every shade in the skin-tone choir. Nonlaser treatments include crease-fighting injectables and chemical peels, as well as ultrasonic Vaser liposuction. Patients relax in the clinic's olive-toned treatment rooms, admiring the framed floral prints on the walls as their physical flaws melt, vaporize, or crabwalk away.
The licensed aestheticians at Fusion Solutions bestow faces with youthful radiance through the dermasweep and Fusion facial treatments. During the one-hour dermasweep, skin-saving practitioners help render skin on the face and neck smoother than sandblasted pop rocks. A bristle tip acts as a vacuum to apply a gentle exfoliation, allowing paraben-free topical products to simultaneously reach deeper layers of the skin for effective results. The treatment can be customized with a wide variety of bristle tips and pore-party hats to suit the patient’s desired results. The Fusion facial handles specific epidermal concerns, such as dry, sensitive, or hypercolor skin, with a wide array of medically prepared products. Using cleansers, toners, and masks derived from natural ingredients such as aloe leaf and coffee extract, facial gurus help protect visages from the elements and late-morning jitters.
With credentials from the Tennessee Department of Health and eight years of experience as one of the US medical leaders on President George W. Bush's healthcare-advisory committee, Dr. Marc Crupie guides a team of medical professionals and aesthetics specialists at Cordova Medical & CosMedic Solutions. With over 25 years as a family physician in Memphis, Dr. Crupie's expertise continues to expand each year, as he seeks out advancements in his field and administers new procedures as they are developed, including Botox and lipotherapy, as well as vein-removal and dermal-filler procedures.
As a full-service family medical center and cosmetic laser office, Cordova Medical & CosMedic Solutions offers specialized treatments in advanced medical, laser, and aesthetic services. CosMedic Solutions technicians use Cutera lasers to assist clients with treatments ranging from hair removal to skin rejuvenation by controlling intense beams of light. Technicians also work with a Diamond Head Microdermabrasion machine to make skin cells feel as special as a piece of hay in a giant stack of needles.
Lead by medical director Gregory Laurence, Germantown Aesthetics’s team of trained specialists beautifies clients’ epidermal landscapes during noninvasive and surgical treatments. Germantown Aesthetics welcomes patients into a handsome, historic building raised in 1887 that now combines space-age lasers and medical equipment with the earth-toned décor and meticulous facial-hair grooming of the late 19th century. Within soothing treatment rooms, physician assistants and registered nurses work alongside Dr. Laurence to fill out wrinkles with Botox and Juvéderm, sculpt svelte waistlines with liposuction, and erase unwanted veins from the surface of legs with advanced laser treatments.
As a medical aesthetician, Tracy Hendry applies her knowledge of beauty and wellness to almost all of the body's major systems. When dealing with spider veins—offshoots of the circulatory system—the registered nurse and her staff erase unsightly vascular branches from legs during sclerotherapy sessions. Her weight-loss and nutrition programs help digestive systems correct course and strive to increase energy and boost metabolism with B12. Fitness regimens, meanwhile, draw from Tracy's beach-body coaching to address imbalances in the muscular system.
Still, some of Tracy's most popular services are only skin-deep. As clinical director of UnPuckerd Med-Aesthetics, she oversees beautifying procedures ranging from Obagi and Vi peels to applications of jane iredale mineral cosmetics. Her Botox and Juvéderm injections kick wrinkles to the curb, disguising their ages more effectively than enrolling birthday cakes in the witness-protection program.
At Dermatology Realm, Dr. Adam Baker, a board-certified physician who focuses on aesthetic skincare, enhances skin health and beauty with services such as laser treatments, cosmetic injections, and minimally invasive liposuction with ultrasonic waves. He smoothes wrinkles with Botox and Juvéderm injections, generates new collagen with an infrared laser during nonsurgical facelifts, and removes body hair and spider veins with lasers. And no matter what treatment clients need, they can schedule a free consultation with the doctor to determine how to fix their skin problems and debate the merits of cooking with cornstarch.
