At Veinity, varicose veins shrink and dissipate, body hair vanishes, and cellulite surrenders its hold on hips and thighs. Aiming to solve these and other beauty concerns is the specialty of Dr. Peter G. Vajtai, who taps into more than 25 years of experience. His mission is to help beautify clients without pain, scarring, or need for anesthesia. That’s why, instead of surgery, he relies on lasers; they can be calibrated to target certain tissues and ignore others. Smart Lipo treatments, for instance, can emulsify fat cells without damaging the skin. Unwanted hair, rosacea, and spider veins can also evaporate without much collateral damage––which is what laser treatments are designed for.
But the board-certified vascular surgeon doesn’t work alone. Alongside Dr. Vajtai, Licensed Aesthetician Wendy Lewis smoothens wrinkles and resolves other beauty woes with training from the Mayo Clinic. She wields certifications in Botox, Juvederm, and medical-grade chemical peels and, like the good doctor, she draws from more than a quarter of a century of experience.
Board-certified dermatologists Robert B. Strimling and Lionel J. Handler call upon their mutual expertise in cosmetic and laser services to help patients maintain healthy and radiant exteriors. In additional to general dermatology treatments for acne, rosacea, and other topical blemishes, the doctors perform a multitude of laser-powered cosmetic treatments to rid skin of hair, varicose veins, and tattoos of relocated sports teams. The advanced dermatology center also restores façades to factory conditions with skin-renewing services such as chemical peels and FDA-approved injections of Botox and Dysport.
Employing paraben-free products, Just Face It Med Spa?s anti-aging experts wind back face clocks with medical-grade skin treatments customized for each client's needs and skin type. The micro-needling procedure helps treat skin peppered with stretch marks and acne scars, while Vi peels reduce acne scarring and jump-start collagen production without the hassle of hooking cheekbones up to alkaline batteries. In addition to the aesthetic innovations compiled by the owner, Martine Abbey, the spa contracts out space to expert practitioners for wax, wrap, and massage services to complement their suite of rejuvenating techniques.
At Quick Weight Loss and Skin Care, clinical aesthetician Audrey Armah revitalizes bodies and instills smoothness in ravaged pores. During skin procedures, clients relax as soft hands tend to fa?ades, gently evicting dryness and glued-on Halloween masks with chemical peels and facials. Laser hair-removal sessions raze the body?s follicular forests with concentrated pulses of light. The clinic also offers private weight-loss programs, in which clients drop pounds while combining portion control and exercise techniques with personalized menus and meal plans.
Rim Marcinkus, MD, PhD, DSc, earned his doctor of medicine and doctor of science in surgery degrees at Vilnius University in Lithuania, where he went on to complete a PhD in scientific research. Practicing plastic surgery for more than 25 years, he has published articles in experimental- and clinical-surgery journals and more progressive issues of Mad magazine. The industry innovator also holds a registered patent for the Eurolift procedure, an advanced technique designed to lift the face by tightening skin and muscles that have loosened due to age or hilly rides in a convertible.
At his Desert Plastic Surgery Center in Rancho Mirage, Dr. Marcinkus specializes in breast enhancements, body sculpting, and hair transplantation, alongside a wide variety of other surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. He seeks out the latest technology and minimally invasive techniques, including full body-lifts after weight-loss surgery, Botox, and dermal fillers.
One thing is evident at Couture Dermatology and Plastic Surgery: board-certified dermatologist Dr. Candace Thornton Spann and her husband, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marvin Spann, prefer the latest technologies. They use vShape lasers, which can treat cellulite; Lutronic Spectra lasers, which are FDA-approved to reduce melasma; and Body-Jet liposuction machines, which can remove fat without general anesthesia and a reading of Goodnight Moon. Of course, they and their staff also schedule traditional plastic surgery, dermatology, and spa services such as lifts, facials, and chemical peels.
