Helmed by Dr. Javier Rios, a physician who specializes in cosmetic skin treatments, Magnolia Skincare refurbishes skin with laser technology, microdermabrasion, and injectable treatments. Spider veins flee following sclerotherapy injections, and bursts of Botox and Restylane soften wrinkles without hanging faces on a clothesline. Cutera lasers penetrate below the skin to remove fuzz and reduce fine lines while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed, and Fraxel lasers combine the effectiveness of ablative laser systems with the gentleness of nonablative machines in order to shrink acne scars and age spots.
At the helm of Healthy Life Acupuncture Center is Dr. Kimi Gudmundsen, who, besides holding a Ph.D., earned a masters degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, and an aesthetician's license. She's able to put her extensive training to good use at the holistic wellness and natural beauty practice, where the treatments run the gamut from healing cold laser therapy to refreshing facials and peels.
Of course, acupuncture is the main specialty here, and Dr. Kimi and her team use the centuries-old technique to help recalibrate internal energy levels and address ailments such as anxiety, pain, and consumption. During the treatment, Dr. Kimi inserts very fine, sterilized needles at precise points, stimulating the body's self-healing mechanisms and redistributing energy flow so that it goes to the areas where it is most needed. The procedure is nearly painless, though some patients may experience a slight tingling sensation, feelings of warmth, or sudden empathy for hedgehogs.
Dr. Syed W. Bokhari and cosmetic clinician Sahar Alhawash believe there as many ways to be beautiful as there are those weird glittery dots in the sky. At The Beauty Medics, they take an individualized approach to anti-aging and laser treatments, drafting a unique plan for each client. They use intensive pulses of light to eradicate the bacteria responsible for blemishes and a combination of radio-frequency energy and vacuum massage to help smooth out cellulite structures. Their medspa experience guides them as they inject faces with beauty solutions that restore lost volume and fill in furrows.
At Erase-A-Tat, a team of doctors and medical professionals employs laser technology to fade or remove unwanted tattoos. Short laser pulses target specific pigments, removing outdated designs or last week's grocery list over the course of several treatments. The staff puts client care first, welcoming questions and concerns and striving to always be on-call to provide quick answers. And though tattoo removal is their specialty, they harness powerful beams during services designed to treat uneven skin pigmentation, nail fungus, or spider veins.
Since its founding team consists of a full-fledged doctor of osteopathic medicine and a medical aesthetician, Lea's Aesthetics rolls out a list of beauty services more akin to that at a plastic surgery center than a spa. Powerful chemical peels, medical-grade fillers such as Botox and Juvéderm, and even hormone therapy are on the menu, along with gentler facials. To add a bit of glamour to faces after they've been revitalized, aestheticians also provide eyelash extensions and brow tinting.
The medical staff at Fountain of Youth Medical Spa rely on lasers to reverse signs of aging and erase skin blemishes. They calibrate their noninvasive beams to achieve a range of effects, from tightening skin and boosting collagen production to vanquishing unwanted hair, tattoos, acne, or brown spots. Whatever the aim, the team listens to clients' expectations during consultations, which kick off every visit.
