Education is key for board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marcus Crawford. After graduating from Baylor College of Medicine, he went on to receive extensive training in cutting-edge reconstructive techniques at MD Anderson Cancer Center, which eventually led him to volunteer for a mission with Operation Smile in Lima, Peru, where he worked to repair cleft lips and other palate deformities in children. He also believes his patients should be properly educated about the procedures they undergo at his namesake office, and so Dr. Crawford and his team discuss each treatment option during a thorough consultation that reveals each patient’s beauty needs and aesthetic goals, and chart the best course of treatment.
Along with cosmetic surgery for the face and body, Crawford Plastic Surgery also offers nonsurgical med-spa services that include microdermabrasion and wrinkle-reducing dermal fillers, such as Botox and Juvéderm. The office is also outfitted with disposable permanent-makeup equipment, which technicians use to tattoo organic, cosmetic-colored ink onto skin, thus defining the brows, lips, and eyelids, or camouflaging scars caused by a malfunctioning magical wand.
Jodi Cabena left corporate America to cultivate her knowledge of nutrition and herbal wellness, which blossomed into a holistic beauty practice informed by science at Healing Harbour. Her first step was a course in electrolysis and perfecting the power walks of runway models, followed by enrollment in a program at The International School of Skin, Nail Care and Massage Therapy in Atlanta. There, she became a Georgia board-certified aesthetician and a massage therapist, learning to nourish complexions with highly engineered PCA products and low-tech botanicals such as camphor, as well as heal the symptoms of stress and injury hidden in muscles. In her search for advanced rejuvenation techniques, Cabena discovered a wax developed to safely remove the hair of surgical patients and several noninvasive light therapies that whiten teeth and promote clear, youthful skin.
The Fountain Laser Hair Removal's staff brings years of laser-helming experience to the relaxing, spa-like environment. Laser hair removal treatments banish unwanted hair from the face, back, legs, arms, and a plethora of other areas. Lasers emit light energy, damaging targeted hair follicles and resulting is reduced hair growth. The treatments work on all skin types, though results vary based on complexion and hair pigment.
The skilled technicians at the center also help shape bodies into model figurines with laser-lipo treatments. Using advanced technology a laser is carefully applied directly to the skin during sessions to assist fat cells in opening up and releasing their lipid content. Laser sessions mimic the same actions seen in exercising, creating an overall effect of a more toned and sculpted body. Sessions may also aid in skin shrinkage, overall inch loss, and targeting problem areas such as love handles or double-chins.
