Licensed aesthetician Erica Munoz, owner of Spa Catalina, helms a staff of beauty maestros, who conduct a symphony of skin-sprucing treatments. Erica has studied under Dr. Doris Day, a board-certified doctor and frequent guest on Good Morning America. And Spa Catalina's laser technicians each achieved national certification in laser technology before they began setting to work removing unwanted hair or etching their initials in the moon. Laser hair-removal treatments toast follicular pigment with intense light energy, shutting down strand-production factories without harming the surrounding tissue. When they aren't zapping epidermises, Spa Catalina's experts mollycoddle visages with facials, ease the appearance of aging through microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, and swaddle corpuses in relaxing body wraps.
A trio of three doctors and an experienced advanced nurse practitioner perform every procedure at aNu Aesthetics, specializing in clinical-grade, nonsurgical skincare treatments that aim to erase signs of aging. Botox injections and cosmetic fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane work to smooth fine lines, and noninvasive treatments, such as chemical peels and microplaning, deeply exfoliate the entire face to leave skin rejuvenated. To keep epidermises glowing, the staff stocks shelves with SkinCeuticals products and locally harvested pixie dust.
These days, most people agree that age is just a number. And with the help of Dolce Vita Anti-Aging Center, that number is becoming increasingly easy to forget. The center's specialists work tirelessly to prevent and treat age-related decline in health or appearance, keeping patients looking and feeling their best. Services range from laser liposuction to bio-identical hormone replacement, which can help correct hormonal imbalances in men's and women's bodies and help them recapture the vivacity of youth.
Aesthetics by Prescription diminishes dermal defects through the able hands of Mary Dugan, a board-certified family nurse practitioner with more than 10 years of experience. Microdermabrasion is a minimally abrasive procedure that gently exfoliates skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer and revealing the candy-coated disco ball hiding just underneath. Stripping dry skin scales in a similar fashion, chemical peels act as facial zambonies, gently smoothing the skin’s texture, and helping correct sun, acne, and age damage by buffing away outer layers in mere minutes. After either treatment, patients may notice a dissipation of fine lines, age spots, pigmentation irregularities, and temporary tattoos, trading in maligned mugs for smoother, more even facial plains.
Northland Integrated Medical, Inc.'s staff of certified professionals helps clients shed unwanted mass with doctor-supervised HCG weight-loss programs. Before each 40-day diet, patients hold court with Northland's proprietor to discuss goals, expectations, and strategies for using leftover dress fabric and attend an examination with a licensed physician to determine their medical suitability for the program. Once the good doctor clears patients and writes a prescription, guests pick up their simple-to-administer drops or injections of HCG from the front desk and embark on a weight-loss odyssey designed to drop 1/2–2 pounds per day.
At You... Only Better, the team tackles their namesake imperfection with treatments such as FDA-approved Endermologie. It's similar to a massage, except that instead of using their hands, the team rubs physiques with a hand piece, tracing carefully-calculated lines across hips, thighs, and stomachs. The process helps tighten and lift skin, much like a lightning-fast elevator ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower. To complement the toning massage, they offer other cellulite-reduction treatments, too, such as slimming non-surgical cavitation treatments, and electric muscle stimulation that tones muscles and reduces dimpling.
