The purposes of Hidden Door Medspa?s services span from relaxation to cosmetic enhancement and improved health. Because of this, the staff includes everyone from licensed massage therapists and aestheticians to certified laser technicians and a medical aesthetician who once put lipstick on a gurney. At the day-spa end of the center, nimble hands brandish Swedish, deep-tissue, or prenatal massage techniques to diffuse bodily tension, and the med-spa area sheds the glow of lasers over unwanted hair and administers cosmetic injections. Hidden Door?s third branch, medical weight loss, operates under a 20-year nursing veteran who counsels clients on nutrition as well as options such as hormone therapy and noninvasive LipoEx cellulite treatments.
Dan Schildgen, owner and general manager of Calista Skin & Laser Center, has put together a skilled team of medical professionals that specializes in nonsurgical aesthetic treatments. Medical director Ann Nolen, DO, is not only board certified in both family-practice and regenerative medicine, but also a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. Dr. Nolen oversees the work of a certified senior laser technician with more than 15 years of experience, a registered nurse who helps people reach their weight-loss goals, and a highly trained laser-tattoo-removal expert who erases evidence of past fascinations with unicorns.
Aside from its knowledgeable beauty mavens, the center sets itself apart with some of the most advanced technology available. The eMax system's elōs technology combines bipolar radiofrequency, light, and diode-laser energies to target wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and unwanted hair. The eMatrix sublative rejuvenation system addresses acne scars and lesions, whereas ReFirme skin-tightening treatments create smoother, firmer appearances. The crew can also reduce fat and cellulite with VelaShape body contouring, giving clients enough confidence to stroll the beach in bikinis or participate in their offices’ Hot Pants Days.
According to the professionals at DFW Tattoo Removal, an estimated one in five adults regret their tattoo decisions. These regrets are due to a range of reasons from employment pressure and taste change to relationships ending and favorite TV villains turning out to be the good guys. Located inside the Calista Skin & Laser Center, DFW Tattoo Removal’s professional technicians use modern laser technology to quickly and cleanly erase unwanted images and words from the skin. They also take aim at sun and age spots, and accidental or “traumatic” tattoos that often occur during motorcycle or firework accidents.
Esthetician Crystal Harrison believes that healthy skin is beautiful skin. At Zanna Grace Skincare, she develops completely custom treatment plans using Skin Script Rx and Circadia Skin Care products and teaches clients how to care for their complexions for years to come. Besides facials and peels, her service menu includes permanent makeup, eyelash extensions, and waxing. And, to help contour physiques, in addition to herbal contouring gels and botanical products, she envelops clients in detoxifying body wraps that use infrared heat to detoxify the skin and increase tone and elasticity.
The aestheticians at Artistic Additions specialize in enhancing natural looks with permanent makeup such as lip liner, eyeliner, or scar camouflage. Staff are also adept at attaching eyelash extensions and performing microdermabrasions that work to clear away skin imperfections using small crystals.
The expert technicians at Lipolaser Centers deploy the clever beams of a laser to shave off excess weight in about an hour. During this signature, noninvasive treatment, low-level pulses gently persuade retained water and lingering lipids to relinquish disputed territory in regions such as the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and lower back. After two sessions, patients may observe up to two-inch reductions from their waistlines and a newfound ability to squeeze themselves through skeleton keyholes.
