The rays of the sun. The flicker of candlelight. The soft glow of fireflies on a summer evening. Humans are attracted to natural radiance, even in the metaphorical sense. While faces may not actually have the power to emit light, it's no surprise that phrases like "he was beaming" and "she lit up when she saw him" often find their way into the English language. The aestheticians at Medical Arts Unlimited's Advanced Skin Care Medical Spa understand the desire to keep the fires of youth burning bright. Ranging from facials and chemical peels to microdermabrasion and Botox injections, their results-oriented clinical treatments take years off of features while simultaneously delaying further signs of aging. In addition to their traditional treatments, aestheticians also equip beautifying technologies, including IPL and DioLite lasers, to keep skin healthy with the aid of the safest science. They also extend their handiwork's effects with a full range of products designed for the everyday maintenance of at-home use.
Owned by Dr. Omar Dalloul, Purity MediSpa uses modern aesthetic procedures to solve common beauty woes and boost client confidence. The staff's arsenal of high-tech equipment includes the Pain Free, Hair Free laser hair-removal system, the versatile Alma Lasers Laser360, and a microdermabrasion tool that destroys impurities such as blackheads, lessens appearance of age spots, sun damage, and acne scarring, and buffs away dulled skin cells to reveal the younger-looking skin underneath. The staff also performs less flashy procedures, including facials infused with such low-tech and natural ingredients as seaweed and vitamins.
Dr. Amjad Safvi has spent more than 15 years in the medical field focusing on vascular issues, particularly varicose and spider veins. He now oversees Advanced Vein Treatment & Cosmetic Center, where he and his caring staff treat patients to complimentary consultations before administering laser, radio-frequency, and sclerotherapy vein treatments along with a host of other aesthetic treatments. The facility’s laser collection, the high-tech cherry on its med-spa sundae, allows the staff to showcase hair-removal, anti-aging, and facial-rejuvenation treatments that round out a crowded roster that includes SkinMedica chemical peels, Botox injections, and fillers that can last up to five years.
Dr. Richard Rosenfeld knows the way to a person?s heart. As a phlebologist and Diplomat of the American Board of Phlebology, he studies the actual pathways to the heart: the veins. At Advanced Vein & Laser Centre, he uses his knowledge to treat patients? unwanted spider and varicose veins, offering them improved confidence when wearing shorts or swimsuits. Before a procedure, he performs a complimentary consultation to design a treatment plan customized to each patient.
Palm trees gently sway above a solitary islet of white sand, the turquoise waters around it almost indistinguishable from the sapphire sky. This photograph hangs on the wall of Massage Motu's waiting room, and it's a fitting image. In Tahiti, "motu" refers to a small island, and while Massage Motu might not be located in the tropics, its serene confines aim to make guests feel as if they've stumbled onto a secluded beach.
Inside private rooms, Motu's massage therapists customize body treatments to soothe clients' stress and aches. Swedish and hot stone massages melt away built-up tension and layers of frost, while special modalities?including prenatal techniques and hand and foot reflexology?focus on specific points of discomfort. Aestheticians are equally adept at fine-tuning facials to address acne, sensitive skin, or signs of aging.
