Spa Sydell traces its roots back to 1982, when its flagship spa opened under the moniker of Sydell Skin Care Salon. A spike in popularity led the spa to change its name to the leaner Spa Sydell and expand to seven locations. Today, the spa?s experts form a team of licensed skincare professionals and massage therapists, all of whom must pass intense training processes in the spa's signature techniques. Dr. Tara Margarella and Dr. Herb Kollinger are skilled in advanced injection techniques and work alongside nurse Cheryl Gillis to help perfect the latest aesthetic and cosmetic treatments, using only US FDA approved products.
Amid The Med Spa at Stat’s olive-green walls, physicians and aestheticians work side-by-side to rid skin of wrinkles, sun damage, and other beauty concerns. Aestheticians ply their techniques at the surface of the skin, customizing facials and exfoliating dead skin cells with diamond microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Physicians take a more internal role as they unfold wrinkles with dermal fillers, address excessive sweating, or smooth spider veins.
Nationally certified and licensed massage therapist Pernille Stephens helms Duluth Neuromuscular Therapy, where she offers a variety of massages. Her modalities include the static pressure of neuro-muscular therapy massage, as well as the fierce, muscular targeting of deep-tissue massage. Her massages can help remove muscular aches, decrease stress, and increase circulation.
Because of the way hair grows, it takes more than one laser session to banish it from the body for good. It's with the knowledge of this process in mind that the crew at Dermani Medspa offers laser hair removal treatments both a la carte and as part of monthly membership programs. Certified aestheticians take aim at unwanted fuzz on nearly any part of the body, including men?s beards and hobbits? toes, using the Lumenis LighSheer Duet. They take a similar membership-style approach to beauty treatments such as microdermabrasions and chemical peels, as these services also tend to yield more dramatic effects over the course of multiple treatments. All of these services take place in a clean, modernly designed clinic painted in soothing earth tones.
At InShapeMD, doctors shepherd clients through wellness programs designed to help them shed weight, feel younger, and increase their energy. Exams and lab work provide the medical team with baseline data at the start of the signature Countdown Diet—a guided, one-on-one fitness and nutrition regimen that can be supplemented with injections of vitamin B12, lipotropics, or big-band music, all of which are designed to boost energy. Hormone-replacement programs for both women and men aim to restore focus, wellness, and libido by inserting plant-based hormone pellets under the skin.
Inside Lavender Med Spa's warmly lit suite, ornaments, paintings, and decorative mirrors festoon the walls. Besides looking nice, the mirrors actually serve a purpose: to show patrons their newly younger-looking selves staring back. The med spa works alongside one of Atlanta's top plastic surgeons, Dr. Morgan Davoudi, and specializes in anti-aging treatments, from brightening facials and medical-grade Revitalize peels to Botox injections and noninvasive ReFirme skin-tightening sessions. Similarly noninvasive are the spa's YAG, Alexandrite, and Diode lasers, which can remove unwanted hair from any type of skin as long as it's not made of mirrors.
