At BodySculptMD, Dr. Janice Vaughn focuses on women's health by addressing the mind, body, and spirit from the cells up. She offers medical and weight-loss services including bioidentical hormone therapy, metabolic testing, and customized weight-loss programs to reeducate bodily systems and prevent or reverse cell breakdown. To enhance outsides, Dr. Vaughn also performs noninvasive aesthetic procedures with devices such as ReFirme, VelaShape, and Zerona. The laser- or radiofrequency-based treatments are designed to tighten skin and reduce fat and cellulite, and, like the best power naps, require little to no downtime.
The licensed aestheticians at Oregon Cosmetic Laser power most of their cosmetic treatments with elos technology—a one-two punch of laser energy and radio frequency. That combination helps the Syneron laser remove hair and virtually erase skin blemishes or spider veins. It even makes it possible for the VelaShape device to nearly eliminate cellulite, turning it into ethanol. For slightly less space-age palliatives, the med spa trots out ReFirme and triniti skin-tightening treatments, Botox injections, and microdermabrasions, all of which are performed under the medical direction of Dr. Jason Hong.
Medical director and physician Dr. Stephanie Durham, MD, ND leads a team of beauty experts?including a licensed cosmetologist and naturopathic doctor?in enhancing clients' appearances with noninvasive treatments. Pulling from a diverse collection of lasers, including the Cutera and Titan systems, techs clear unwanted hair or wrinkles, and help tighten the skin. Medical aestheticians customize facials and peels to treat specific skin troubles and gently knead muscles to evict stress. The spa's decor fosters feelings of calm with warm colors, flickering candles, and comfy leather seats.
At the Reviance Portland medical facility, licensed aestheticians supervised by double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. James Chan resurface dull visages with minimally invasive IPL lasers and custom chemical peels. The approximately 90-minute visit kicks off as an aesthetician evaluates a patient's skin type and ability to complete geometric proofs before prepping dermises with a face and neck facial. Under the guidance of Dr. Chan, the aesthetician sweeps the medical-grade chemical peel across facades to extract dead epidermal layers. Then, the aesthetician beams intense pulse light (IPL) rays onto facades, which can lighten pigment patches, tighten skin, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Newly minted mugs leave with a post-treatment kit stuffed with goodies and a glow that mimics the sun after its first kiss.
The experienced aestheticians at West Hills Cosmetic Center & Spa revivify visages with facial treatments to improve skin damage and signs of aging. In a half-hour treatment, a pumpkin-infused salicylic-acid treatment unclogs pores and resurfaces the skin to help visibly improve skin damage from sun exposure and oils. In addition to this all-over invigoration, a soothing scrub will leave hands feeling extra smooth and ready for power lunches with glad-handing politicos. Clients can also opt for the 45-minute IPL photofacial, which helps reduce discoloration, fine lines, and large pores through a series of pulsed-light treatments.
