The founders of Body Medical Contouring—president Jonathan Penn and creative director Heather Hohweiler—set out on a year of travel and research, hoping to discover the latest noninvasive and minimally invasive body-sculpting treatments. After achieving success they opened a facility, which Hohweiler designed and marked with Romanesque white columns and green topiary-like accents. But Hohweiler didn't join Penn on his sojourn merely because she wanted to create a luxurious medical aesthetics center—it was personal. She experienced firsthand the effectiveness of the services their center now offers, having lost an impressive 72 pounds. As she explained on Atlanta & Company, Hohweiler used a potent combination of mesotherapy—a series of injections that metabolize fat deposits—and carbossi therapy, which employs medical-grade carbon dioxide gas to increase circulation and eliminate fat cells.
To perform their wrinkle- and fat-ousting protocols, Penn and Hohweiler assembled a team of medical experts and time travelers from the future. Medical director Dr. Tosha Rogers and two registered nurses target stubborn fat and cellulite with Exilis radio-frequency sessions or via the hCG injectable diet and B-12 lipotropic injections. The med spa's cutting-edge treatments have been featured in numerous local media, including The Atlantan Brides magazine and the Fashionado blog.
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.
Dr. Kendra A. Cole, a specialist in medical dermatology, and her partner, aesthetic physician Dr. Louis D. Cole, help patients enhance their outward appearance with state-of-the-art treatments. Less invasive body-contouring options include VelaShape, Thermage, and Ulthera ultrasound skin tightening, which can result in svelte figures that easily shimmy into packed elevators and tuck behind trees during hide-and-seek.
Medical director Dr. Peter Ulbrich applies his extensive knowledge of beauty-related medicine as he masterfully captains the aesthetically driven staff at Georgia Aesthetic Med Spa. The team of specialists and technicians follow through on their mission to achieve lasting, beauty-boosting results with a menu of clinical facials, injectables, and laser treatments, all of which send wrinkles, acne, and body hair into retreat. Their services also include holistic therapies such as massages that ease the pains of a long work week as a human wrecking ball.
Drawing on experience working with versatile medspa products and technologies, the licensed aestheticians at Laser Logic provide powerful treatments for an array of skincare concerns. The center’s cosmetic laser—a Cynosure Apogee Elite system— allows the staff to zap unwanted stubble or minimize the appearance of age spots, sun damage, and spider veins for clients with virtually any skin type. Similarly, the medspa’s compound chemical peels restore a youthful glow to countenances by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and by gently dissolving old Groucho moustaches. Laser Logic also provides free consultations where an aesthetician will meet with visitors and perform a spot test to observe how their skin responds to the laser.
