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.
A specialist in anti-aging medicine, Dr. Janho temporarily eradicates face creases with the smoothing powers of FDA-approved Botox. While bone boxes rest, the steady-handed doctor injects a time-rewinding tonic into wrinkle-afflicted facial regions with a tiny needle, paralyzing the hyperactive muscles that cause facial fault lines. Within a few days skin appears smoother and the results can last up to six months, allowing visages to browse the young adult section of the public library without a fake ID. The non-invasive procedure requires very little downtime, so freshened faces can return to normal activities almost immediately.
At Plastic Surgery of Gwinnett, the staff, led by licensed aesthetician April Beck and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Al Rosenthal, make sure that decisions to choose a spa treatment are not driven by hard-sell tactics. The team offers a wide variety of laser services, facials and peels, including microneedling, chemical peels, Botox, and enzyme treatments. The friendly and experienced staff also ensures that patients are well informed about their skin and how to treat it so treatments' results are long lasting.
Hair Restoration Specialists of Atlanta's hair-reclamation experts attempt to revitalize the scalps of men and women with a range of nonsurgical and surgical treatments. The medical team consults with each client to work out a tailored plan, which could incorporate noninvasive grafts that bond directly to skin to create lush head-top topiary. Doctors may also choose to combine high-frequency lasers with medicated scalp massages to plant the seeds for healthy and hydrated hair. For surgical options, they can transfer willing follicles from donor areas as well as revive already existing transplants.
Plastikos originated as a cosmetic- and reconstructive surgery center, but board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Susan E. Kolb and Dr. Julian Gordon wanted to make a place for their clients to just relax. So they decided to expand their clinic with the Plastikos Medical Spa, a tranquil studio that serves up a range of spa treatments. To combat signs of aging, the TCA-based Obagi Blue chemical peel lifts away dull layers of skin and revitalizes cellular regeneration. Antioxidant-rich variants might include botanical ingredients sourced from blueberry, pomegranate, or pumpkin.
Meanwhile, expert massage therapists might use deep-tissue or reflexology techniques to excavate tension and undo stubborn knots. Alternatively, an Endermologie lipo-massage aims to disperse fatty tissue with focused kneads and rolls. The med-spa also uses advanced know-how to beautify clients with noninvasive medical treatments. The Ion Magnum, for instance, uses analog waveforms to trigger neurons that mimic physical activity, thereby building muscle and joint strength. The beauty haven also offers cold-laser LiLa body-contouring and Latisse eyelash-lengthening treatments to ready bodies for swimsuit season or a winking competition.
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.
