At Med Spa UM, a team of laser technicians, carboxytherapy specialists, and estheticians help clients nourish their skin and fight the effects of aging with effective, high-tech procedures. Their facial treatments restore lost years without the need for surgery; injections of dermal fillers and Botox plump up sagging skin, and carboxy injections fight fine lines and wrinkles with tiny subdermal infusions of CO2. Customized facials and microderms revitalize faces' exteriors, sloughing off layers of dead cells to reveal supple stretches of skin underneath. Although faces are one of the spa's major concern, they're not the team's only area of expertise. They also coax stubborn fat deposits to shrink with advanced techniques such as the Full Contact laser, which emits low levels of infrared light, or ultrasonic lipo sessions.

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.
