For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it?s not enough to simply treat patients? skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa?s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they?re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers?along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches?to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which relies on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and massage to help defend against cellulite and assist patients in reshaping their figures.
The award-winning Dr. Dinakar Golla, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Golla Center for Plastic Surgery and Sacred Image Med Spa, has been recognized by universities, Merck, and the national medical honor society Alpha Omega Alpha. When he's not lecturing, publishing articles, and teaching other surgeons to perfect their skills and properly quote medical dramas, Dr. Golla joins his team to help patients look and feel their best. Traditional surgical options, such as rhinoplasty and tummy tucks, join injectables and laser treatments to comprise a full menu of rejuvenating services.
Lead by Dr. George Cherian, the team of certified technicians at Ivagio Laser Spa wield lasers and customize spa treatments to improve overall health and beauty. With those lasers they remove hair and diminish the appearance of all kinds of blemishes, including acne scars, stretch marks, age spots, and wrinkles. Their list of more than 15 treatments also includes laserless procedures such as Botox injections and ion-detox foot sessions that purge the body of environmental toxins.
Backed by a quarter-century?s worth of experience, Tracey and her staff at Pittsburgh Permanent Makeup & Laser Center zap away unwanted ink and make skin appear more youthful with paramedical aesthetic services. For tattoo removal, they utilize laser technology in a process that breaks ink particles into tiny fragments for the body to remove naturally. An expert makeup artist applies permanent makeup to brows, lids, and lips, and a certified collagen induction therapist administers collagen-induction therapy, which can reduce or eliminate the appearance of lines stemming from general aging. Their esthetician helps clients solve common and uncommon skin issues.
The Lutronic Spectra laser system is the key to treatments at tattoo-removal studio Disappearing Ink. The system operates at four different wavelength ranges, effectively targeting a wide range of ink colors. It's beams break down pigments in the skin, allowing the body to then naturally pass the ink. The process is minimally painful; many patients compare it to the snap of a rubber band on the skin.
Though board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Jeneby specializes in transforming patients' appearances, his own face may look very familiar. The diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery has shared his extensive knowledge of both adult and pediatric plastic-surgery procedures with stations such as ABC News and KENS 5, and he was named one of the best area plastic surgeons by S.A. Scene. Dr. Jeneby also offers expertise as a national trainer on topics such as Lipotherme, SmartLipo body sculpting, and DOT therapy laser skin resurfacing.
At the equally acclaimed Plastic & Cosmetic Center, Dr. Jeneby and his staff perform surgical and noninvasive procedures ranging from rhinoplasties to SmoothShapes laser cellulite treatments. The facility houses a convenient onsite lab for blood draws and a concierge room where family members can watch television or their own DVDs from home. Clients can head upstairs to Spa Black to be treated with lasers that remove unwanted hair, banish pigmented lesions, or read barcode versions of Shakespeare.
