Time seems to stop at DVida Body & Skin Care; it even manages to reverse from time to time. The doctors and licensed medical aestheticians lead this charge against the cosmetic ravages of time, armed with an arsenal of products and technology intended to restore patients' youthful glows. The technicians use a Cutera cosmetic laser system to zap unwanted stubble, jump-start skin-firming collagen production, or minimize the appearance of facial and leg veins. Dermal fillers and microdermabrasion wands help turn back the cosmetic clock, while, the med spa's team also performs custom facial treatments to purify pores.
Dr. Rania Agha leads the team at Summit Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, a practice with a menu of clinical cosmetic services representing her extensive expertise. Dr. Agha particularly specializes in treating skin of any ethnicity, fine-tuning skin-resurfacing sessions and chemical peels to ensure each client’s complexion glows like a contented lightning bug. She and her staff of skilled technicians use laser light to remove excess hair, fade unwanted tattoos, and erase veins. Should guests wish for more dramatic transformations, body-contouring treatments and liposuction are also available.
Under the direction of Dr. Thomas Heggen, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., cosmetic surgeon and Diplomate of the American Board of Ob-Gyn, the veteran staff at Your Medicos specializes in plastic surgery, med-spa treatments, and family medicine infused with holistic healing techniques. Medical experts stage extreme makeovers and help bodies fit back into their high-school footie pajamas with liposuction or face-lifts and use noninvasive laser treatments with FDA-approved tools to expel unwanted body hair and tighten skin. Physician-grade skincare products from Glytone rejuvenate countenances and European ultrasound-cavitation technology slenderizes bodies. Your Medicos' technicians also draw upon chiropractic services, Eastern-inspired acupuncture, and herbal medicine to bolster the traditional Western healing technique of wrapping patients in the U.S. flag and singing the national anthem until they feel better.

Premier Dermatology's board-certified dermatologists and skilled aestheticians draw on years of experience in the beauty industry to improve clients' skin tones and textures with exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments.

Exfoliation ousts dead cells loitering on the top layer of skin, helping to reveal a clearer, more evenly toned epidermis. No downtime is needed after the treatment, allowing freshly buffed façades to immediately return to proving whether it requires more muscles to frown, smile, or make a fish face.
