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.
Dr. Donald Ruf is the core of Slender SpaMed, which specializes in cosmetic and weight-loss procedures. They employ the latest technology, including a Syneron laser hair-removal system and the Arasys Perfector, designed to trim waistlines without exercise or ice-cube diets.
Slender SpaMed's aestheticians perform traditional spa treatments, including hydrating facials, therapeutic massages, and slimming body wraps. Custom weight-loss programs supplement nutritional counseling and personal-training sessions with procedures such as vitamin injections.
Under the supervision of a board-certified physician, Naturally Ageless Med Spa’s health-care professionals use state-of-the-art technology to groom exteriors. Their confidence-boosting services range from Revitalight anti-aging facials and microdermabrasion to laser hair removal and custom-written odes to a new haircut. They also boost inner and outer well-being with a variety of massage techniques, including yoga-influenced Thai massage and therapeutic neuromuscular reintegration treatments, and specialize in screening for skin diseases such as melanoma, psoriasis, and seborrheic keratosis.
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.
