At Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center, owner and triple board-certified surgeon Dr. Donald Wortham uses his expertise and certifications in cosmetic, facial plastic and reconstructive, and head-and-neck surgery to sculpt and contour bodies during a range of surgical procedures. Because plastic surgery is a weighty decision, the doctor strives to inform each patient about the details about their desired service and tailor each procedure to the patient receiving it. A thorough presurgical consultation not only helps the patient understand their procedure, but also informs the physician about the patient's aesthetic concerns. With this knowledge, the surgeon devises a custom treatment plan and presents it to the patient through detailed discussion and spirited rounds of Pictionary.
Since 1996, a medical aesthetician has helmed Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center's full-service med spa. To ensure clients get the best effects, the aesthetician personally researches and evaluates many skincare lines before offering them for purchase. They remove unwanted hair with a LightSheer laser and perform a slate of Aromatic spa facials, clinical chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments.
Each of Seattle Sun Tan's 39 locations spans between 2,000 and 4,000 square feet of space dedicated solely to the art of un-sunbathing. Washington-state tanners strut down immaculate hallways dotted with framed original paintings and contemporary artwork before settling into private rooms where they may acquire their desired shade while enjoying the sounds of their own music or prerecorded subliminal messages piped in through the iPod dock perched near each bed. The Smart Tan?certified staff guides clients in selecting which of the five levels of UV bed best fits their tanning needs and whether they desire a short tan time, prefer to stand up or lie down, or wish to bask beneath high-pressure face lamps. Shop shelves offer home tanners quality products from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty, whereas spray-tanning options from VersaSpa and SunFX both impart a natural-looking faux glow that takes mere minutes to apply and lasts for days.
Since opening in 1982, Tropical Tan has become a go-to bronzing spot with a wide range of state-of-the-art tanning beds and UV-free spray-tanning booths housed in clean, private rooms. Level 1 or 2 tanning grants access to lower-watt bed options, ideal for novices building base tans or wilted plants seeking a fortifying light source. Level 3, 4, and 5 Ultra beds imbue skin with a deeper burnish. UV-free Mystic Tanning spritzes skin with a DHA-infused tanning mist that covers limbs with an even, natural-looking glow.
Noninvasive spa treatments such as red-light therapy diminish signs of aging and improve skin tone with UV-free rays. Formostar body wraps also harness the power of light, sending infrared energy harvested from a fireworks farm into thighs, hips, abdomen, and arms in the hopes of boosting metabolism, contouring curves, and ousting cellulite.
David Kadzielewski spent 15 years as a trainer and a manager in several big gyms. Over and over, he saw a pattern repeat itself: the gyms would become impersonal, customers would tire of mass mailings, and individual attention would be replaced with a one-size-fits-all approach to fitness. So David set out to do something different: he founded
Latitude 47 Fitness , whose comparatively smaller size and higher levels of personal attention help programs stay client-focused. The fitness side of Xhale features equipment, such as cardio machines and treadmills that can be bench-pressed, along with classes and personal training. Wellness experts also offer nutritional guidance. Spa treatments include massage and saunas. While parents work out or get a tan, kids can roam free in a supervised play area.
North West Med Spa’s skilled technicians lure inner radiance to the skin's surface with a range of custom beauty services, from body wraps and sugar waxing to light-powered photofacials. A complimentary skin analysis precedes each facial treatment, allowing aestheticians to measure the extent of sun damage, wrinkles, and thorny rosacea gardens before proceeding. Rejuvenating DermaQuest and G.M. Collin products, along with the undulating paddle of the Multiderm skin-exfoliation system, assist them as they craft custom treatments to promote healthy, glowing complexions. Among the spa’s other noninvasive skin procedures, VelaShape body-contouring treatments buff out discrepancies in tone and Botox injections erase evidence of sustained squints or frowns.
Medical Director Dr. Marilyn Tompkins, ARNP, busies Radiant MedSpa's staff with an array of services that refine skin surfaces. Injectables such as Botox and Sculptra free faces of wrinkles or circles around the eyes that reveal age. IPL photofacials and fractional skin-resurfacing treatments leave skin as brilliant as an Einstein wrapped in reflective tape; the spa's laser systems can also halt hair production in follicles or zap away spider veins. Glycolic or lactic acids reveal youthful skin and fight blemishes during chemical peels, and HCG weight-loss programs bolster weight loss with a combination of booster shots, protein shakes, and vitamins.
