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.
Under the guidance of Dr. Vitality D. Gavrikov, Beauty Skin Laser’s aestheticians rejuvenate their patients’ skin with a range of medical-grade treatments. Their array of cosmetic lasers, chemical peels, and body wraps rid bodies of any number of aesthetic blemishes, including unwanted hair, signs of aging, sun spots, and stubborn fat deposits.
During her more than 20 years in the beauty industry, Kimberly has earned certifications as a medical aesthetician instructor, laser specialist and master body artist and has performed nearly 10,000 medical procedures. Nowadays, she draws on her eclectic credentials at the helm of her eponymous laser center. With beams from FDA-approved Candela and Syneron laser systems, she and her staff, including Dr. Jack Cheng, can remove unwanted stubble, tighten wrinkled skin, and rejuvenate faces aged by the knowledge that the tooth fairy is actually a boozy out-of-work actor. Her permanent-makeup services streamline morning beauty routines, and her patients’ crow’s-feet and laugh lines temporarily disappear after injections of Botox, Restylane, and other cosmetic fillers. Kimberly’s team also performs spray tans and eyelash extensions.
For more than 40 years, the doctors and staff at Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery have worked to beautify clients inside and out with cosmetic plastic-surgery procedures. The center's three board-certified plastic surgeons don't just fulfill the required minimum to form a surgeon folk-rock band—they also furnish the diverse specialties necessary to lavish their patients with services ranging from facelifts and rhinoplasty to liposuction, tummy tucks, and breast augmentation. Meanwhile, an in-house anti-aging physician treats hormone imbalances and coaches guests on losing pounds through the hCG diet. The team also bolsters patients' appearances with nonsurgical procedures including facial injectables, laser hair and tattoo removal, and microdermabrasion treatments that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores stretched by spelunking freckles.
The interior of Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery conjures a sense of serenity with its rich wood floors complemented by walls in quiet earth tones such as forest, sand, and ozone layer. Contemporary artwork hangs over unimposing furniture in the waiting room, and a more formal reception space beckons visitors with pastoral art and an oriental area rug.
Science meets art at North Fulton Plastic Surgery. As a board-certified plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist who has operated a private practice since 1998, Dr. Brian Howard commits to helping his patients achieve their aesthetic goals by recommending and performing an array of surgical as well as noninvasive procedures. Although their surgeries can affect dramatic cosmetic changes, Dr. Howard's technicians and aestheticians also enlist an assortment of cutting-edge technologies to yield equally impressive results from their noninvasive treatments. In addition to the Fraxel technology and the Q-switched Nd:YAG and ruby laser systems, the center also features devices that harness ultrasounds or radio frequency waves to promote spot fat reduction. Together, their medical and medspa treatments can boost patients' confidence by helping them look svelte and more youthful than the picture on their Big Wheel-driver's license.

The spa’s massage therapists add a healing, human supplement to technology-focused services. Their expert hands can administer modalities ranging from Swedish and sports for soft-tissue injuries to reflexology for aching feet.
