Ultra Smile Dentistry doesn't just look like a spa?it operates on what its founders calls a spa philosophy. That means Dr. Neda Bahmadi and her team tailor every service to its individual recipient, whether it's a whitening session, a surgical procedure, or a Botox treatment. Sleek, snow-white architecture, chic animal-print rugs, and a rainbow of fresh flowers cultivate an upscale sense of style, complementing staff friendliness and expertise with luxury.
Drs. Michelle Barnes, a board-certified internist, and J. Castillo-Plaza, a gynecologic and laser surgeon, love focusing on the aesthetic aspect of medicine. Making clients beautiful, they find, is such a welcoming break from traditional medicine, which just doesn't give patients the same boost of confidence and youthfulness that can follow a facial-filler injection or cellulite treatment. That's why all of their services, from a basic facial peel to SmartLipo laser-assisted liposuction to Botox injections for underarm sweating can help to make patients feel beautiful. That's also why instead of a clinical med-spa setting, the office is a place of tranquility, where patients can inhale lavender-scented aromatherapy or sip complimentary tea, coffee, or water while taking in the Asian decor of bamboo, Buddha statues, and sushi rolls glued to the walls.
Liv Plastic Surgery by Dr. Ress enhances its patients' natural radiance by performing a variety of both surgical and noninvasive procedures. Dr. Andrew Ress?a physician with board certification in general as well as plastic surgery?continues to embrace the most advanced improvements in cosmetic care as he refines the techniques he uses to perform facelifts, liposuction, tummy tucks, and other services. However, the practice's noninvasive treatments are also capable of generating dramatic changes. Cosmetic laser systems can zap unwanted stubble, eliminate spider veins, or even minimize the appearance of acne scars, sun spots, wrinkles. Microdermabrasion treatments and exfoliating chemical peels help even out skin tone by buffing away dead skin and dried cake frosting from the face, and medically-designed weight-loss programs can help patients achieve the figure they want over time.
Dermatone Skin Rejuvenation Center's licensed technicians and nurses wield FDA-certified radio-frequency generators for skin-tightening treatments that seek to mitigate stretch marks and cellulite. The therapeutic, deep-seeking heat massages existing collagen and promotes the production of new collagen in hopes of firmer skin surfaces. The clinic and its aestheticians, however, don't only offer this treatment?they also present a slate of facials designed with essential oils, clay masks, and vitamin C. Additionally, their weight-loss program, which is referred to as Last12Pounds uses vitamin injections, recipe books, and freezing one's snacks in a block of ice to help people look and feel better.
Eric Garcia, ARPN, is the sword clients use to fight aging. At America Aesthetic Center, he injects clients with Botox or Juvéderm, which reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and add volume to skin. He also performs a platelet-rich plasma facial that rejuvenates cells and removes wrinkles with plasma taken from the client’s own blood.
