The medical staff at Fountain of Youth Medical Spa rely on lasers to reverse signs of aging and erase skin blemishes. They calibrate their noninvasive beams to achieve a range of effects, from tightening skin and boosting collagen production to vanquishing unwanted hair, tattoos, acne, or brown spots. Whatever the aim, the team listens to clients' expectations during consultations, which kick off every visit.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.

Dr. Krugman and his team of board-certified plastic surgeons have amassed decades of combined experience turning medical techniques toward bodily beautification. Careful pretreatment evaluation and consultation helps determine the most appropriate treatment plan for each face in their care. Botox ($390 for 33 units, the average quantity needed for best results) stops wrinkle-causing frown muscles in their tracks with a quick, noninvasive injection between the brows and a series of clown auditions.
