The team of spa and medical professionals at Aura Laser Skin Care dispenses FDA-approved treatments whenever possible. When fine-tuning the appearance of men and women through laser hair removal, SmartLipo, laser skin resurfacing, or chemical peels, only treatments given the official thumbs-up are used on clients. For newer procedures, the staff relies on advanced systems to soften skin, slim shapes, or eradicate troublesome moons orbiting newly glowing complexions.

The human body’s healing mechanisms are always lying in wait, ready to rush to action in case a person skins their knee or catches a flu bug. Sometimes, however, they don’t work as fast or as well as they should. That’s when Nazanin Kimiai, Doctor of Naturopathy, steps in.
As the founder and medical director of Comprehensive Medical Center, Kimiai optimizes the body’s natural healing centers with treatments and therapies that blend Eastern philosophy with Western medical technology. This combination reflects the breadth of her training: she has an acupuncture license, a master’s degree in oriental medicine and acupuncture, and a degree in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University. She also boasts postgraduate training in biological and oxidative medicine and proficiency in an array of advanced diagnostic tools, such as infrared cameras and electromagnetic frequencies.
A highly trained staff that includes seasoned hydrotherapist and spa medicine practitioner Melinda M. Beck, ND, rounds out Comprehensive Medical Center’s team. The staffers ease symptoms and root out underlying problems with acupuncture, homeopathy, detoxification, and hydrotherapy. They oversee a vast dispensary of supplements and hold the secrets of German biological medicine, which balances pH in the blood using tactics invented by Count Dracula’s pool boy.
Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Taggart believes in the body's ability to heal itself. As a chiropractor, it's his job to rout out problems that impede the body's natural healing functions. He uses applied kinesiology to test muscles and to determine sources of pain and organ imbalances. He goes a few steps further with rehabilitative exercises, nutritional therapy, adjustments, and neurology-based therapies to heal patients young and old who suffer from chronic conditions.
Boasting a proficient background and a friendly, caring presence, Dr. Lindsay A. Barry's dental sanctuary relaxes jittery jaws and washes molars of pugnacious plaque in a welcoming, relaxed setting. Passionate in her craft, Dr. Barry frequently studies the latest bicuspid weeklies and popular denture fashions to provide patients with the most modern, important tips to maintain proper care. After resting in her comfy dental chair, she'll gaze deep into your maw for signs of trouble, take pictures of your teeth for the office's yearbook, and address any concerns, pains, or existential ennui before degunking your charming chompers. In one quick, gentle procedure, your mouth bones will sport a tidy, healthy, and commanding glow, potent enough to scare the worms from rotten apples or power a space shuttle solely with smiles. Call ahead to make an appointment.
Nurse practitioner Olga Voloshina and her team of aestheticians divide their services into three categories, though all three serve the same purpose: to enhance the appearance of skin. The medical-grade facial services do so traditionally, with the help of cleansers, moisturizers, and exfoliation in the form of peels and microdermabrasion that are individually customized for each client. The laser and light treatments help clear up conditions such as rosacea, acne, and sun damage. They also administer injectables such as Botox and Juverderm to smooth out wrinkles on the skin's surface. Of course, before beginning any procedure, a staff member consults with each client to devise the proper treatment plan for the client's skin woes.
