At AmeriCurves medical spa, staff performs advanced nonsurgical cosmetic procedures within a relaxing, day spa-like ambiance. The team employs FDA-approved laser technology to remove hair and treat age and sunspots, wrinkles or acne, and spider veins. They use radio-frequency energy to diminish the appearance of cellulite, and LipoSonic ultrasonic cavitation to target stubborn fat without disrupting surrounding tissues or tattoos of sleeping dogs.
Although "LipoLaser" sounds like the work of science fiction, it's been featured in very real mediums, including The Doctors and beauty and fashion magazines. This spa's expert staffers wield the technology, helping their clients slim down without turning to crash diets or illegal ivory corsets. A gallery of before-and-after images shows success stories in the form of shrunken bellies, tightened thighs, and more defined chins.
John Hayes was an internist for many years, but it's his board certification in anti-aging medicine that comes in handy as the medical director for Physician's Rejuvenation Centers. The clinic's specialty is slowing the aging process, whether via a facial, hormone-replacement therapy, or the whiting out of a patient's date of birth. For that extra shot of vitality, Hayes and his staff also prescribe supplements and amino-acid injections.
Since opening its first center in 1999, Laser Skin & Wellness has expanded to two locations, both of which provide medical aesthetic treatments overseen by Medical Director, Gloria Hakkarainen, M.D. And to ensure each patient receives the best treatment for their concerns, a personalized consultation is performed before technicians craft a customized treatment plan, which can include medical weight loss programs, laser tattoo removal, dermal fillers, and permanent makeup treatments. Laser technicians gently remove unwanted hair with a Cutera CoolGlide laser, which keeps the skin comfortable with a built-in cooling device, or a Cutera ProWave 770 system that can banish strands on all skin types including invisible. During acne treatments, a Clear Light system releases blue-violet rays across the skin, killing bacteria deep in the pores. To further beautify complexions, Laser Skin & Wellness’ staff also employs Obagi, SkinMedica, EltaMD, and Jan Marini products.
With more than 18 years of private practice, Dr. Francee Brody and her all-female staff enhance the body’s aesthetic appeal with non-surgical medical procedures. Her extensive services include weight-loss programs, HCG, and natural and Rx appetite suppressants. She also uses facial fillers—such as Juvederm and Artefill—, tried and true injectables such as sclerotherapy for leg veins and Botox, and advanced, skin-safe laser technology. DOT laser treatments promote the production of collagen to plump up folded, crinkled skin, and IPL lasers evaporate facial capillaries, sun damage, and fine lines.
Alite Laser’s three locations act as upscale sanctuaries where clients can go to lose spider veins and unwanted fat, but their specialty is hair removal. A trio of hair-removal procedures—waxing, laser removal, and electrolysis—fight follicles more effectively than scaring hair away like it’s a case of the hiccups. When they aren’t performing laser hair-removal procedures, technicians harness the power of light to brighten skin during facials.
