Dr. Kendra A. Cole, a specialist in medical dermatology, and her partner, aesthetic physician Dr. Louis D. Cole, help patients enhance their outward appearance with state-of-the-art treatments. Less invasive body-contouring options include VelaShape, Thermage, and Ulthera ultrasound skin tightening, which can result in svelte figures that easily shimmy into packed elevators and tuck behind trees during hide-and-seek.
For more than 40 years, the doctors and staff at Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery have worked to beautify clients inside and out with cosmetic plastic-surgery procedures. The center's three board-certified plastic surgeons don't just fulfill the required minimum to form a surgeon folk-rock band—they also furnish the diverse specialties necessary to lavish their patients with services ranging from facelifts and rhinoplasty to liposuction, tummy tucks, and breast augmentation. Meanwhile, an in-house anti-aging physician treats hormone imbalances and coaches guests on losing pounds through the hCG diet. The team also bolsters patients' appearances with nonsurgical procedures including facial injectables, laser hair and tattoo removal, and microdermabrasion treatments that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores stretched by spelunking freckles.
The interior of Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery conjures a sense of serenity with its rich wood floors complemented by walls in quiet earth tones such as forest, sand, and ozone layer. Contemporary artwork hangs over unimposing furniture in the waiting room, and a more formal reception space beckons visitors with pastoral art and an oriental area rug.
EOS Medical Spa's physicians partner with certified massage therapists and technicians to rejuvenate patients' faces and bodies. The staff specializes in services for women with darker or ethnic skin tones and administers custom facials and laser treatments to leave all complexions glowing. Techs harness laser light for skin resurfacing, wrinkle reduction, and hair removal, and the light can address spider veins and cellulite when asked politely. The spa’s massage therapists add a healing, human supplement to technology-focused services. Their expert hands can administer modalities ranging from Swedish and sports for soft-tissue injuries to reflexology for aching feet.
Dr. L. Jack Cheng—a cosmetic physician and medical director at Atlanta Medical Institute—leads the LifeSpring Antiaging & Aesthetic Medicine team in smoothing skin and turning back facial clocks with a cadre of laser procedures and injectables. With an approach that emphasizes patient collaboration, Dr. Cheng precedes each treatment by listening to patients’ concerns and going over all treatment options. From there, he and the patient devise a regimen that might enlist lasers to remove hair, sun spots, or spider veins, or task Dysport or Juvéderm injections with filling out wrinkles and shar-pei Halloween masks.
Derma-Luxe's comfortable beds and private treatment rooms provide a welcoming setting to have the deft hands of a trained aesthetician work over your face's outer layer. Choose from three treatments. A microdermabrasion facial (a $150 value) lasts one hour and consists of a deep pore cleansing, gentle resurfacing with microdermabrasion, steam hydration, extractions, and a soothing mask. A Jessner peel (a $150 value) lasts 30 minutes and can be tailored to suit skin sensitivity. Three chemical blends of kojic acid lighten and brighten your skull cover for a refreshed, gleaming visage. The final option is LumiFacial therapy (a $175 value), consisting of 45 minutes of infrared facial immersion. The light produced by LED lamps helps increase the production of collagen and elastin for cheeks as firm and flexible as a rubber yoga instructor. The therapy can be tailored to treat different conditions, including aging, acne, redness, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation.
During her more than 20 years in the beauty industry, Kimberly has earned certifications as a medical aesthetician instructor, laser specialist and master body artist and has performed nearly 10,000 medical procedures. Nowadays, she draws on her eclectic credentials at the helm of her eponymous laser center. With beams from FDA-approved Candela and Syneron laser systems, she and her staff, including Dr. Jack Cheng, can remove unwanted stubble, tighten wrinkled skin, and rejuvenate faces aged by the knowledge that the tooth fairy is actually a boozy out-of-work actor. Her permanent-makeup services streamline morning beauty routines, and her patients’ crow’s-feet and laugh lines temporarily disappear after injections of Botox, Restylane, and other cosmetic fillers. Kimberly’s team also performs spray tans and eyelash extensions.
