The vitality virtuosos at MedAesthetics Spa & Wellness treat clients to a sundry menu of spa services performed in a 3,000-square-foot facility. A botanical peel ($110) exfoliates faces with a heady blend of glycolic and lactic acids, which helps alleviate uneven pigmentation and diminishes fine lines attributable to stress or years of sleeping on pleated pillowcases. Kinked muscles flee the scene during one of five massage services ($45–$140), and aestheticians sculpt svelte figures with 50-minute detoxifying body wraps ($85), which shape contours and inspire pottery-making hobbies using a trio of drawing clays and Klamath blue-green algae. Clients can supplement each spa session with a 20-minute soak in a hydrotherapy tub seeped in calming, balancing, or energizing bath powders and oils ($35). Warm colors dominate the spa, where the gentle gurgle of a waterfall whispers in a tone that’s softer than a lamb swaddled in an even softer lamb's wool. Complimentary robes and steam-room access further enhance the day's relaxing treatments.
Dr. Melinda Silva specializes in balance. She earned a Compassionate Physician Award from her patients for balancing emotional connection and clinical savvy, but she can also balance more concrete entities: hormones. Her bioidentical-hormone therapies alleviate the imbalances that can cause issues from mood swings to obesity. To complement them, Dr. Silva prescribes lifestyle changes such as diet alterations, new fitness regimens, and healthier sleep routines. Her clinic handles aesthetic concerns just as adeptly as medical ones, with noninvasive physique-contouring Exilis treatments, wrinkle-smoothing Botox injections, and chemical peels.
