One thing is evident at Couture Dermatology and Plastic Surgery: board-certified dermatologist Dr. Candace Thornton Spann and her husband, plastic surgeon Dr. Marvin Spann, prefer the latest technologies. They use vShape lasers, which can treat cellulite; Lutronic Spectra lasers, which are FDA-approved to reduce melasma; and Body-Jet liposuction machines, which can remove fat without general anesthesia and a reading of Goodnight Moon. Of course, they and their staff also schedule traditional plastic surgery, dermatology, and spa services such as lifts, facials, and chemical peels.
As a division of Valhalla Wellness and Medical Centers, Valhalla MedSpa puts an emphasis on medical-grade care with a team that includes a registered nurse and laser specialist. Instead of fighting sickness, this team works to roll back the clock and help clients reach their aesthetic goals. Specialists administer facial treatments with scientifically formulated SkinCeuticals products and smooth wrinkles with Botox or fillers. Zerona laser treatments provide a quick fix for clients who want more pronounced curves, and custom weight-loss programs offer a more sustained approach to weight loss. The wellness centers also promote well-being with a family practice doctor (MD), a naturopathic physician (ND), chiropractic care, and massage therapy.
At Quick Weight Loss and Skin Care, clinical aesthetician Audrey Armah revitalizes bodies and instills smoothness in ravaged pores. During skin procedures, clients relax as soft hands tend to façades, gently evicting dryness and glued-on Halloween masks with chemical peels and facials. Laser hair-removal sessions raze the body’s follicular forests with concentrated pulses of light. The clinic also offers private weight-loss programs, in which clients drop pounds while combining portion control and exercise techniques with personalized menus and meal plans.
Dr. O. Wells, medical director of Las Vegas Fat Loss Center, helms a slimming program focused on laser body-sculpting treatments. Eschewing risky surgeries, his team specializes in melting fat with noninvasive Lapex BCS technology. Before-and-after measurements track the contouring progress, and the center's maintenance program helps prevent future weight gain.
The name says it all at You’re Looking Good, a place where beauty specialists led by a medical director boost beauty from head to toe. LED light replaces knives, scalpels, and cold doctor hands during nonsurgical face-lift procedures designed to boost collagen and lessen fine lines and wrinkles. A topical serum works in conjunction with phototricogenesis therapy to regenerate thinning hair, and three noninvasive weight-loss methods contour bodies: a nonsurgical lipo laser, an infrared body wrap, and a whole-body-vibration system.
The two board-certified plastic surgeons at Hankins & Sohn Plastic Surgery Associates, Dr. W. Tracy Hankins and Dr. Samuel Sohn, specialize in breast aesthetics. As some of the largest users of breast implants in the country, the doctors are well equipped to perform breast augmentations, reductions, lifts, and reconstructions. They also skillfully rejuvenate faces with face-lifts and Botox, and they slim bodies by sucking out fat with SmartLipo liposuction or taking off the patient’s snowsuit. In fact, the doctors partner with some of the Valley’s gastric-bypass surgeons to help contour bodies after clients have had their stomachs shrunk.
