Lead by medical director Gregory Laurence, Germantown Aesthetics’s team of trained specialists beautifies clients’ epidermal landscapes during noninvasive and surgical treatments. Germantown Aesthetics welcomes patients into a handsome, historic building raised in 1887 that now combines space-age lasers and medical equipment with the earth-toned décor and meticulous facial-hair grooming of the late 19th century. Within soothing treatment rooms, physician assistants and registered nurses work alongside Dr. Laurence to fill out wrinkles with Botox and Juvéderm, sculpt svelte waistlines with liposuction, and erase unwanted veins from the surface of legs with advanced laser treatments.
Memphis Laser Clinic gives the skin a fresh start by erasing tattoos of any shape or size. The center’s special tattoo-removal equipment was designed by Quanta—the company whose lasers have partnered with CERN, sliced De Beers diamonds out of the rough, and helped restore the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Memphis Laser Clinic uses Quanta's Q-Plus C system, which targets pigments with controlled micropulses of laser light energy that destabilize the ink and allow the circulatory system to naturally dissolve the design. These pulses can affect virtually any ink—including deep blues, bright greens, and rarely glimpsed infrareds—and they cause minimal discomfort to the surrounding tissue. To help soothe the skin, technicians can utilize a cryogenic skin-cooling system, but the laser can still cause the sensation of a snapping rubber band with each pulse.
The all female staff of physicians at Vein Memphis use an array of imaging technologies to diagnoses vascular maladies before trotting out a slew of different treatments to address them. This includes noninvasive laser treatments that zap spider veins from outside the skin, as well as endovenous laser treatments that attack like robot Trojan horses from inside the vessel. Schlerotherapy treatments rely on an injectable solution that seals off troublesome spider and varicose veins, causing blood to get redirected to healthier, more supple conduits.
Dr. Roland Hollis and Robin Hollis, a licensed practical nurse, help their patients ward off the signs of aging with an array of cosmetic techniques. They use beauty injections and platelet-rich plasma to tame wrinkles and improve the contours of the face, as well as permanent makeup to flatter features. They also help those looking to shed a few pounds with doctor-supervised weight-loss programs that incorporate healthy lifestyle changes, exercise, and medication.
Since opening its doors to the public and closing its portals to other, more dangerous dimensions in 1998, Rochelle Health & Wellness' staff has helped over 10,000 individuals lose weight and feel better about their skin and body. Multiple types of body wraps, including chocolate mint, tummy, and half-body wraps, help shrink waists when paired with detoxifying teas and cardio DVDs. In addition to fat-fighting treatments, aestheticians administer peppermint facials and nonsurgical face-lifts that work to rejuvenate sagging skin.
Visionary Eye Care's professional staff enhances peeper-canvases with a menu of customizable facials and medical-grade peels. With the Level I facial, customers can choose between two styles. The signature facial's concoction of Vitamin C, glycolic acid, and enzymes caresses rosacea-prone, dry, and uncontrollably sobbing pores while gently eradicating hyperpigmentation and increasing cell turnover for a glowing visage. Alternately, the organic passion peptide lift, a non-chemical peel designed to naturally rejuvenate and smooth the skin, blends a fruity fusion of citric acids including papaya and mango.
