The board-certified physician, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses at Aura Skin Spa help to halt the sands of time with FDA-approved technologies and aesthetic services. They glide high-intensity alexandrite and YAG wavelength lasers over dermal layers, which deliver cease-and-desist letters to hair follicles and sculpt comely silhouettes with SmartLipo MPX treatments. A range of skin services including microdermabrasion allow the crew to exfoliate and moisturize fa?ades until they glow more than a radioactive lightning bug.
Siblings and board-certified surgeons Dr. Lisa Kang and Dr. David Kang share more than the same parents; they work together at Serenity MedSpa, where they both specialize in aesthetic procedures. Beneath shelves of Botox, Latisse, and glo minerals products, Clear + Brilliant laser systems hum. Like R2-D2?s high-school reunion, the rooms are crowded with high-tech machines, including Smartlipo, Cellulaze, Liposonix and Ulthera.
Dr. Jeffrey DeWeese wanted to be a physician when he was just 12 years old, but it wasn't until an emergency-room rotation that he decided to be a plastic surgeon. After watching a colleague reconstruct a young girl's injured face, Dr. DeWeese resolved to dedicate himself to a specialty that combines artistic vision with technical proficiency to improve patients? quality of life. Now with board certification and more than 17 years of surgical experience, he still relies on this combination of skills, spending ample time with patients beforehand and working with them to select an appropriate treatment regimen.
Surgical procedures comprise a healthy portion of the center's services, but the staff also bolsters confidence, tones and shapes silhouettes, and counteracts aging with less invasive alternatives. Custom facial treatments, for instance, incorporate everything from anti-inflammatory enzymes that conceal signs of acne to soothing masks that leave skin as hydrated as a sponge in a bucket of Gatorade. Microdermabrasion sessions and dermal fillers improve skin tone, whereas a therapeutic massage combines Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressure, and reflexology techniques to address individual aches.
The staff at Dermal Essentials' three locations takes skin seriously. With backgrounds and certifications in aesthetics and makeup artistry, they know how to cleanse skin and enhance appearances whether they are performing microdermabrasions, organic peptide peels, or makeup applications. During treatments, they use high-quality products from Image Skincare, a chemical-free, pharmaceutical-grade skincare line, and Follique, which calms skin after waxing, shaving, or a stern talking-to in the mirror.

But her additional training in beauty injections and resurfacing lasers helps her keep the outside looking good, too. A native of Shanghai, she can communicate with her clients in either English or Mandarin, helping her clearly communicate all available treatment options and the punch lines of knock-knock jokes. Clients can also find obtain a wide range of available treatments, including Ultherapy, Smartlipo, Thermage skin tightening, Fraxel laser skin resurfacing, IPL, laser hair removal, laser vein removal, Juvederm, and Latisse.
