Featuring an upscale yet warm and comfortable atmosphere, Sanctuary offers you a complimentary beverage of your choice before your face-beautifying session. The microdermabrasion treatment removes layers of sun damage, sluggish and stressed-out skin, and ambiguous, unidentified dark spots ($60). After an initial face cleaning, the oxy trio facial treatment ($85) will provide three-step antioxidant therapy designed to avoid and rectify damage caused by free radicals—a leading contributor to the aging process and melty legs. Even after a semester spent crab fishing in the Everglades, the treatment is able to rejuvenate stressed skin and stimulate circulation and respiration. The trio is then followed up by the Ultra II treatment, which promotes cell turnover and production of elastin and collagen for a soft, vibrant appearance that can be seen in mirrors.
The science behind the impressive results of Mind, Body, & Soul is complex and nuanced, but its aim is simple: enhance a naturally occurring metabolic process. The Yolo Curve and Lapex Lipo Laser target fat cells with noninvasive laser energy, causing them to release water, fatty acids, and glycerol, which results in smaller fat cells and inch loss.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Jay Richardson and his staff remove the marks of aging on the face, body, and legs with both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. During the free consultation that precedes treatments, patients chat with body experts to discuss beautifying options such as IPL photorejuvenation or chemical peels infused, like balanced breakfasts, with acidic fruits. Dr. Richardson, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, oversees noninvasive treatments such as laser liposuction and sclerotherapy to handle unsightly veins.
Dr. Rory Hall graduated from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic with one goal: to help patients heal without drugs or surgery. Nearly three decades later, he holds to that same mission; now, however, he augments his non-invasive therapies with modern clinical technology. An FDA-approved cold laser extinguishes inflammation and injuries without breaking the skin, and diets help patients drop unwanted pounds.
“Give me 45 minutes and I will take off 15 years,” says Midwest Medical Aesthetics' president Kathleen Stegman on the company's website. As a registered nurse with a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, she has the knowledge to do just that. Stegman's expertise lies in beauty injections such as Botox and Dysport, which she's been using to tighten faces for more than 13 years. Along with her team of associated physicians, she also harnesses the power of laser energy to help clients remove unwanted hair, shed fat, and erase tattoos of ex-lovers' favorite species of fungus.
Dr. Craig Schwartz, a triple-board-certified vascular surgeon, and a nurse sclerotherapist at Vein Centers for Excellence help patients reduce spider and varicose veins with laser treatments and sclerotherapy injections. During the initial consultation, the doctor looks at small purple squiggles as well as large, distended channels on the face or legs, and plans an attack using techniques such as a superficial or topical laser, sclerotherapy injections, or a snake-charming Indian reed pipe. Each vein-diminishing treatment requires little downtime, sometimes relieves pain, and can boost body confidence. Two treatments yield results, though a total of three–six sessions spaced four–six weeks apart are commonly necessary to clear spider veins. The most effective treatments are usually seen in patients with fair skin or veins made of twizzlers.
If you're not sure which high-quality service best matches your skin condition, one of Quinn's experienced skin aestheticians will help you decide during the assessment. A microdermabrasion treatment utilizes mechanical exfoliation and a Ouija board to gently blast away the skin’s uppermost layer—smoothing skin, improving collagen growth, and undoing love bites from the sun's angry face. The treatment usually leaves a healthy and radiating glow without the peeling process of a chemical peel. The SkinMedica Illuminize chemical peel, on the other face-hand, can be effective for individuals and chameleons suffering from facial blemishes, acne, superficial lines, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and clingy face-hugger aliens. The chemical peel pairs a newer generation of alpha-hydroxy acids with phytic acid and commonly used peeling agents to maximize skin rejuvenation while ensuring a low level of irritation.
