21st Century Dental expanded its aesthetic umbrella in 2009 to include 21st Century Med Spa, spreading the office?s goal of enhancing smiles to include other parts of the face and body. Medical director Brandon Charles oversees the clinic and aesthetic nurse Cheryl Gwartney masters specialty services that serve her personal passion for making patients feel confident in their own skin. Laser facial services plump and tighten facial skin to erase irregularities such as age spots, acne, and sun spots. Cheryl also wields syringes full of Radiesse, Dysport, and Restylane formulas that smooth facial wrinkles in order for adults to be able to sneak into G-rated movies.
Under the guidance of certified medical aesthetic provider Jackelyn Davis, Skin Rejuvenation Wellness Center's technicians unleash the power of the FDA-approved triniti complete facial rejuvenation treatment to smooth and firm skin of all types. The noninvasive procedure involves a three-step treatment––performed one after the other during one roughly 90-minute office visit––that begins with a color correction process to target blemishes ranging from spider veins to sun spots in the shape of the Eifel Tower. During step two, infrared light and bipolar radio frequencies gently pulse over epidermal layers, motivating collagen fibers to synthesize and tighten saggy areas. Finally, an experienced technician harnesses a focused series of microbeams to stimulate collagen growth and create a more elastic skull sheath. Many clients enjoy immediate results and immediately resume their normal activities. Typically, three treatments are required for long-lasting smoothness and the convenience of not being carded when buying juice boxes.
Dr. Ellen Turner and her staff of aestheticians, physician's assistants, and medical assistants are passionate about what they do. In a mini-documentary about their practice, they all chime in about unearthing their clients' inner beauty and enhancing their self-confidence. Through their treatments, which range from facials to treatments for acne and rosacea, they focus on making a difference in their patients' lives. A lot of times this means bringing about change that makes patients happy to look in mirrors and unwilling to hide their faces beneath brown paper bags.
Though most licensed aestheticians know a great deal about the skincare products they use, few know their serums and creams as well as Lily Trieu knows hers. That’s because at Lily Med Spa, Trieu uses Lily Dermaceuticals skincare products, a line she cocreated with registered nurse and licensed aesthetician Tama Tran. The duo's more than 15 years of experience as aestheticians working in clinical skin-treatment centers gave them first-hand knowledge of the complexity of skin’s tone, sensitivity, and penchant for turning purple after excessive eggplant consumption.
This knowledge helped them to develop more than 50 pharmaceutical-grade products, used as part of the comprehensive aesthetic care plan they have developed for their patients. The duo uses authentic Botox and Dysport fillers to smooth out facial wrinkles and un-furrow frown lines. They also wield a Sciton laser to reduce unwanted hair, remove acne scarring, and boost skin texture and brightness with micro-peels. During SkinTyte treatments, infrared energy deeply heats soft tissue, causing it to tighten as it heals and stimulate collagen production. Fractional resurfacing, on the other hand, targets outer layers of skin, peeling away the old, damaged surface to reveal a healthier layer.
While performing her residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Dr. Ellen Turner built a strong foundation for treating dermatological conditions such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and skin cancer. She designed DermLaser Institute of Dallas to treat skin maladies ranging from eczema and melasma to scar treatment. She and her staff tone and brighten complexions with skin treatments as well as medical, cosmetic, and laser procedures. Outside of simple skin-brightening work, DermLaser Institute of Dallas also wields Yag and Fraxel lasers to perform facial rejuvenation, body contouring, hair removal, and tattoo removal. Dr. Turner also works below the surface in her spa, treating faces with injectables and dermal fillers in addition to traditional chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion treatments. She also helps clients keep up at-home regimens with Belladermis, her personally curated product shop that includes cleansers by SkinMedica, lotions from Obagi, and a mysterious salve that turns dogs invisible.
