Mod Skin And Body's massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail technicians aren't the only ones who are good with their hands. Its owner actually created the repurposed barn doors that decorate the spa in their garage. They also crafted the chevron-patterned wood installation in the waiting room by hand.
The spa's rustic-chic decor includes a handcrafted pedicure bench, as well. This tufted banquette pairs with a crystal chandelier to add a dash of luxury to the pedicure station.
While indulgences for the eyes abound here, it's the spa treatments that keep clients coming back for more. These include everything from gentlemen's facials to Obagi chemical peels to makeup tutorials that use bareMinerals products.
When patients talk about Dr. Teresa Richter, the phrases "caring," "knowledgeable," and "talent for listening" come up over and over again. The naturopathic physician's legion of fans appreciate not only her compassion and wisdom, but her holistic approach to healthcare and the effectiveness of her services. Dr. Richter eschews medication and surgery for a prevention-based method of care, seeking to help bodies heal themselves and grow their own stethoscopes. She offers various treatments at Kirkland Family Health and Wellness Center, including laser therapy and supplemental injections, as well as hormone- and nutrient-level testing.
With 25 years of professional practice, board-certified nurse practitioner Margaret L. Larson leads the team Larson Medical Aesthetics in performing cosmetic procedures in a medically sound environment. Margaret and her medical aesthetic staff are experts in facial aesthetics. Margaret is the national top injector of BellaFill (formally known as Artefill) and was recently recognized with a BellaDiamond Award from Suneva Medical. She is an expert in advanced injection techniques, using Botox and dermal fillers to fully restore volume loss in the face and hands, providing a liquid lift and collagen stimulation. Temporary fillers include Juvederm, Voluma and Radiesse. The longest lasting filler is BellaFill (Artefill). The medical aesthetic staff use the Alma Lasers and medical grade chemical acid peels to correct skin defects caused by sun damage, acne and aging.
Triple board-certified surgeon Dr. Jan Zemplenyi of Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery—which opened in 1989—makes himself available 24/7 after every patient’s reconstructive, cosmetic, or otolaryngology surgery. He can reach for Botox injections to ward off facial wrinkles, or use a Reaction by Viora system, which combines three radio-frequency modes and a vacuum effect, to tighten skin while simultaneously spooking cellulite until it runs away. The doctor also performs noninvasive treatments such as chemical peels and laser resurfacing, and donates his services to victims of domestic violence.
