Belle Vie MedSpa's staff includes a nurse practitioner, registered nurses, and a nutritional expert, who all work alongside a handful of licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and skincare specialists to pamper clients with FDA-approved spa treatments. The highly trained team harnesses tools ranging from Botox injections to hair-razing lasers and may recommend products by Obagi and SkinCeuticals for at-home maintenance.
Specialties include vibradermabrasion, which uses stainless-steel paddles instead of the potentially irritating particles used in traditional microdermabrasion treatments. As they smooth skin, the textured paddles also send a vibrating sensation through the body that many clients find relaxing and many Beach Boys find inspirational. When not making the world beautiful one face at a time, the team at Belle Vie MedSpa puts the focus on building a better community, sponsoring a number of charities, including God's Pantry Food Bank, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and The Nest Center for Women, Children & Families.
Dr. Sandra Bouzaglou was drawn to her present career while on a plastic-surgery rotation at Loyola University in Chicago. There, she learned how cosmetic and reconstructive surgery could help improve patients' self-confidence. Dr. Bouzaglou’s experience moved her to open Kentucky's first accredited outpatient plastic-surgery practice, The SurgiCenter, which is located within The Center for Plastic Surgery. Here, Dr. Bouzaglou and her medical team restore and enhance bodies by offering breast augmentation, leaving tummies flatter, and skin thinner with liposuction. The team also performs dramatic nonsurgical med-spa treatments, including laser hair removal, tattoo removal and micropigmentation with a VersaPulse laser, and fat-reducing contouring with CoolSculpting.
At Skin Chic, Dr. Waldman, Dr. Schantz, and Dr. Nimtz perform elective surgeries ranging from face-lifts to liposuction. They also lead a team of aesthetic specialists that improves appearances with less invasive strategies, such as facial peels and alerting clients to mustard on their collars. Lasers can be enlisted for a myriad of reasons, including tightening skin and fading unwanted tattoos.
Dr. Monica Hall, Sonata's beauty-bestower-in-chief, earned accolades as a general surgeon before shifting the focus of her laser sight solely on reconstructive procedures and cosmetic care. Microdermabrasion scrubs away dead skin cells to make room for the growth of fresh young cells. This facial power wash is effective at minimizing fine eye lines and large pores, and, with several treatments, it can even reduce deep-rooted dermal discoloration caused by the sun or the makeup still caked on from childhood beauty pageants. Set in Sonata's serene skin-scrubbing suites, this treatment takes about 30 minutes, and recovery is usually marked by nothing more severe than redness and a mild sting that may last 24 hours. After treatment, replenish your moisture reservoirs by caking buffed areas in cosmetic cream or the tears of a phoenix.
