With 25 years of experience treating hair loss under their belts, the experienced doctors at The Hair Loss Control Clinic aim to combat hair loss in men and women with painless laser hair-therapy treatments, earning the clinic a mention from WWLTV. During the consultation, doctors scrutinize scalps, explain the treatment, and answer patient questions, such as “Why doesn’t male pattern baldness create more interesting designs?” Patients can sit and relax as a safe low-light-level laser, which boasts a 30-year track record and a successful FDA clinical trial, haloes heads in red-light energy in an effort to rout out male and female pattern baldness, thinning hair, alopecia areata, and traction alopecia. The light works to stimulate metabolism and dormant disco-dance moves in cells, helping follicles repair themselves.
Dr. Stephen E. Metzinger, a board-certified plastic surgeon, oversees the talented team at Dolce Bellissimo. Under his direction, aestheticians beautify clients from head to toe with services such as facials, chemical peels, and eyebrow tintings. Massage therapists, meanwhile, use deep-tissue techniques to help their clients manage pain and stress. Dolce Bellissimo also encompasses a retail shop, which sells advanced skincare products.
Carole Siegel-DeZarn first opted to get inked with permanent cosmetics as a way of simplifying her busy life as a mother. Her desire to share this beautification technique with others led her to become a certified instructor of SofTap permanent cosmetics and open Softouch Permanent Makeup & Laser Technologies. She and her staff enhance clients' appearances with lip color, eyeliner, and natural-looking eyebrows that don't wash off in the shower or streak when knife-fighting with onions. Laser technicians on the team banish unwanted body hair and tattoos with noninvasive treatments, or cause unsightly spider veins to fade from existence with Veinwave's high-frequency heat energy.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Elizabeth A. Kinsley and her technicians take a highly personal approach to each cosmetic surgery and noninvasive procedure in order to help women feel comfortable and informed throughout each step. Her office brims with the latest state-of-the-art technology, including an Axis 3-D breast-imaging system and an iPhone app that helps women determine which breast-implant size is right for them. Nonsurgical enhancements include Botox, Juvéderm, and FDA-approved CoolSculpting—a liposuction alternative that destroys fat cells by freezing them and requires no lasers, needles, suction hoses, or dynamite.
New Orleans native Dr. Jonathan Weiler and his staff enhance natural beauty with cosmetic procedures and laser services that remove tattoos and unsightly veins. They also provide minimally invasive treatments that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
In Louisiana, all aestheticians endure at least 750 grueling hours of cosmetology schooling before they can obtain a license. Difficult scientific classes aren’t part of the required curriculum, but they were essential for Elite Skin Suite’s Lessie. After obtaining her cosmetology license back in 1978, the aesthetician became completely enamored with skin. So she headed to Tulane College and enrolled in classes such as genetics, mutation, and cellular biology, all in hopes of truly understanding the ins and outs of her favorite organ.
So far, her schooling has served Lessie well. For more than 30 years, she has helped clients of all ages maintain healthy skin with treatments tailored to their individual needs. Every service at Elite Skin Suite begins with a complimentary assessment, which gives Lessie the knowledge she needs to administer any one of a dozen or so of the facial treatments in her repertoire, including glycolic-acid peels, LED therapy, and detoxifying acne facials. And though most spas and licking puppies tend to focus on the face, Lessie focuses her aesthetic eye on the whole body with cellulite wraps, coconut-infused hydration treatments, and waxing.
