A fleet of dentists and oral surgeons at various dental offices have banded together with one aim: to keep Georgians' smiles as bright and healthy as possible. Managed by the same business, each Dental Practice Group of Atlanta office has its own name and staff. Patients at each location recline in comfy chairs as licensed dentists and experienced technicians remove excess plaque, inspect gums for signs of disease, and x-ray chompers for cavities. Available at every office, Venus White teeth-whitening treatments improve upon pearly whites' luminescence and ability to serve as a projection surface for miniature film festivals.
Broadening her dental skills is a never-ending mission for Dr. J. Kaur of Diamond Dental. Upon graduating from the Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine at Boston University, she started out in private practice, but soon felt the urge to learn even more about her profession. This ever-increasing drive led her to attain board certification in general dentistry and eventually to earn memberships in such professional groups as the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and the Hinman Dental Society. Today, Dr. Kaur continues her education by enrolling in courses every year to study the latest advances in oral treatment, emerging dental technologies, and techniques to provide excellent care to patients.
At B³ Day Spa, licensed aesthetician Jamecia Bowers specializes in facials and body treatments that generate healthy, glowing skin. Her spa’s motto is Beauty to the 3rd Power, which speaks to Bowers’s goal to amplify each client’s natural beauty. While she mainly focuses on skin’s health, Jamecia also has years of experience as a makeup artist, including training under a duo of celebrity makeup artists. She can use this prowess to conceal blemishes and third eyes before big events.
With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
Ever since he was a child, Dr. Michael Carter struggled with weight. It followed him all the way through medical school, where he became a board-certified anesthesiologist. Things changed in his 30s, however, when he opted for liposuction, and the success inspired him to shift his medical focus to cosmetic surgery. Since opening The Mesotherapy Center—now located in a new facility in Perimeter Town Center—Dr. Carter and his trained team have performed more than 7,000 aesthetic and wellness treatments.
True to the center’s name, many of the treatments rely on mesotherapy—injections of vitamins, enzymes, and homeopathic medications. The injections help fade spider veins, ease arthritis and muscle pain, and alleviate insomnia more effectively than Sean Connery’s soothing recitation of The Yellow Pages. The center also uses advanced laser technology to remove unwanted hair and fungus, and performs tumescent liposuction to contour physiques with less pain and downtime than traditional methods.
Cindy Barshop may have a familiar face. She gained reality-TV fame as a cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she found success much earlier when the Madison Avenue spa she founded more than 10 years ago grew into a hair-removal brand known throughout the country. Completely Bare’s waxing specialists dab bikini lines with the shop’s proprietary blend of ouch-less wax, which adheres to hair instead of skin to avoid the painful pull that often accompanies a waxing session. The blend is hypoallergenic and does not cause acne, which makes it ideal for depilating sensitive skin and touchy bodily zones. Routine waxing sessions add extra sparkle with the salon’s vajazzling service, which bedecks newly hair-free spots with up to 70 Swarovski crystals arranged into such shapes as hearts, stars, peace signs, and MPAA ratings. The spa specialists also migrate beyond the below-the-belt area to polish the rest of the body with facials, laser hair removal, spray tanning, and teeth whitening.
