Dr. Joseph Galitzin works toward one goal: turning back the clock. He’s not a particularly inept watch repairman, however— he’s the accomplished medical director of Skin Care At 5th Ave. Here, he oversees a staff of aestheticians and clinicians to help him defy the cosmetic effects of aging. The first step to achieving this lofty goal is holding a preliminary consultation with each new client, which Dr. Galitzin prefers to helm personally whenever possible. During these consultations, the staff typically employs Beau Visage skin-analyzing technology to take a look beneath the surface of the skin—2 millimeters beneath the surface to be exact. This gives them a clearer look at how blood flow, melanin levels, and sun damage may be contributing to any skincare conditions.
With this evaluation in mind, Dr. Galitzin and his staff will recommend a treatment regimen that emphasizes nonsurgical procedures and confidence-boosting high fives. Diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels can improve skin tone and texture by deeply and powerfully exfoliating the topmost layers. IPL technology can help by erasing stubble, fading sunspots and signs of hyperpigmentation, or even stimulating collagen production beneath the surface. To add even more structure to jawlines and cheekbones, the staff also offers injectable dermal fillers, which can help conceal the appearance of anything from wrinkles to depressed acne scars.
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.
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.
Unlike motivational speakers, hypnotists, and the wise-cracking parrot from your recurring dream, the compassionate expert physicians at AMI understand that losing weight isn't always about will. Sometimes, your biological makeup is setting you up to fail, like all those times it pulled the football away just before you tried to kick it. That's why your treatment is fully customized to your body's particular needs to help you achieve the best possible results. During your initial doctor's visit, you'll get a physical exam, blood test (the results of which will receive a panel review), and dietary analysis. Together with your doctor, you'll set realistic goals and get a customized meal plan, complete with recipe ideas and tips for shopping. The complete 30-day weight-loss prescription isn't just about what you eat. You'll also receive one Lipo/B12 shot to jump-start your metabolism and help you burn fat faster—plus a consultation about how hormone therapy could help you achieve your goals.
