As the Medical Director of BARE MedSpa, Dr. Thomas J. Locke III leads a team dedicated to improving appearances with a combination of artistry and advanced technology. From photo facials that erase sun damage and boost collagen production to Vaser liposuction that slims down curves without invasive surgery, the center's aesthetic services keep clients looking and feeling their best.
In addition to technology-aided makeovers, BARE MedSpa's team also aids its clients through the latest advances in medical science. The center's anti-aging regimen turns back calendars through bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, addressing symptoms ranging from mood swings and hair loss to sleeplessness and fatigue. Designed by Dr. Locke himself, the center's MediQuick weight loss program helps clients shed pounds through a combination of prescription medication, energy-boosting injections, and weekly counseling and meal-planning sessions.
From general medicine and chiropractic treatments to testing services and physical therapy, Wellness Plus Clinic covers every base of its clients' well-being. Perhaps this is why so many programs there seem to have multiple facets. The medically supervised weight-loss programs help patients shed unwanted pounds with services such as meal plans, hCG or B12 injections, and counseling. Chiropractic regimens work in tandem with pain-management plans to ease chronic pain. The doctors also rehabilitate people after car wrecks, sports injuries, and slap fights with the governor. In addition to its health-related services, the clinic handles such medical-aesthetics procedures as Latisse, cosmetic injections—such as Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane—and skin cryo treatments. Wellness Plus Clinic accepts Major Medical Insurance plans for most of their services.
Drawing from her extensive training as an anesthesiologist, Dr. Woodley Mardy-Davis decided to channel her passion for providing minimally invasive care by focusing on aesthetic medicine. W. MD Weight Loss & Aesthetics wholeheartedly embraces this focus, using an arsenal of modern cosmetic technology to combat body woes with little to no pain.
Laser systems can fade acne scars or zap unseemly stubble. Diamond-tip microdermabrasion smoothes away wrinkles and fine lines. Even radio-frequency technology becomes useful, helping firm and tighten the skin. Beyond the traditional med-spa procedures, Dr. Mardy-Davis offers physician-designed weight-loss services, helping clients look thinner by administering lipotropic B12 injections or telling them to stand up straight.
Plastikos originated as a cosmetic- and reconstructive surgery center, but board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Susan E. Kolb and Dr. Julian Gordon wanted to make a place for their clients to just relax. So they decided to expand their clinic with the Plastikos Medical Spa, a tranquil studio that serves up a range of spa treatments. To combat signs of aging, the TCA-based Obagi Blue chemical peel lifts away dull layers of skin and revitalizes cellular regeneration. Antioxidant-rich variants might include botanical ingredients sourced from blueberry, pomegranate, or pumpkin.
Meanwhile, expert massage therapists might use deep-tissue or reflexology techniques to excavate tension and undo stubborn knots. Alternatively, an Endermologie lipo-massage aims to disperse fatty tissue with focused kneads and rolls. The med-spa also uses advanced know-how to beautify clients with noninvasive medical treatments. The Ion Magnum, for instance, uses analog waveforms to trigger neurons that mimic physical activity, thereby building muscle and joint strength. The beauty haven also offers cold-laser LiLa body-contouring and Latisse eyelash-lengthening treatments to ready bodies for swimsuit season or a winking competition.
Dr. L. Jack Cheng—a cosmetic physician and medical director at Atlanta Medical Institute—leads the LifeSpring Antiaging & Aesthetic Medicine team in smoothing skin and turning back facial clocks with a cadre of laser procedures and injectables. With an approach that emphasizes patient collaboration, Dr. Cheng precedes each treatment by listening to patients’ concerns and going over all treatment options. From there, he and the patient devise a regimen that might enlist lasers to remove hair, sun spots, or spider veins, or task Dysport or Juvéderm injections with filling out wrinkles and shar-pei Halloween masks.
Unlike motivational speakers, hypnotists, and the wise-cracking parrot from your recurring dream, the compassionate expert physicians at AMI understand that losing weight isn't always about will.

That's why your treatment is fully customized to your body's particular needs to help you achieve the best possible results. During your initial doctor's visit, you'll get a physical exam, blood test (the results of which will receive a panel review), and dietary analysis. Together with your doctor, you'll set realistic goals and get a customized meal plan, complete with recipe ideas and tips for shopping. The complete 30-day weight-loss prescription isn't just about what you eat. You'll also receive one Lipo/B12 shot to jump-start your metabolism and help you burn fat faster—plus a consultation about how hormone therapy could help you achieve your goals.
