If the palm tree bearing Christmas lights speaks to Skin Image Spa?s whimsical style, the translucent drapes, abundant throw pillows, and overflowing tablecloths reflect its serenity. These two facets of the spa's mission?creativity and relaxation?are further exemplified in its ergonomic salon chairs, where stylists infuse flair in the form of designer cuts, color services, and extensions. Farther inside, staffers escort guests down other avenues of beauty and relaxation with facials, massages, and mani-pedis.
The Sclerotherapy treatment, which is designed for both men and women, begins with a methodical consultation and ultrasound to determine the best course of action. After the inspection, a board-certified physician feeds each unwanted vein a reasonably painless injection that seals off its lifeline, causing it to vanish and readying legs to participate in everyday kick-lines. Sclerotherapy requires no anesthesia so the mind remains nimble enough to return to work as an operator of heavy machinery shortly after leaving the comfortable confines at Georgia Vein Specialists.
At Marietta Center for Yoga and Well Being, yoga classes represent a fraction of the therapeutic practices offered. Wanda DeVaughn augments private yoga sessions with special techniques, such as chakra focus, which includes meditation to rebalance internal energy, and koshas, which brings awareness to students' five levels of being. Alternatively, Tina Rae teaches the importance of eating well through holistic chef services and nutritional counseling.
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.
At Aesthetic Center, P.C., a team of physicians and physician assistants performs a variety of services to prevent and manage skin issues. Their services include skin peels, laser hair removal, IPL skin rejuvenation, and blue light therapy.
