Dr. Garland Porterfield?s mission is to bring to life his clients? envisioned image of themselves. He mostly does this through plastic surgery, in which he is board-certified and well versed in body, breast, and facial procedures. He also treats clients with non-surgical needs. His skin-rejuvenation services range from microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser-hair removal, to dermal fillers, such as Botox, that soften the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Derek Shadid helms Shadid Plastic Surgery Associates, combining his medical knowledge with modern technology to give patients their desired results with the minimal amount of discomfort. Shadid lends skilled hands to procedures that sculpt and contour the entire body or focus on facial features. But not all of the surgeon's procedures are surgical—an on-site medical spa welcomes clients for less invasive treatments, such as chemical peels, laser hair reduction, and Botox injections that smooth lines from frowning or excessive winking. And while experienced nurse-aestheticians administer many of the med-spa treatments, Shadid always takes part in patients’ initial consultations and oversees their care.
Many of the med-spa services at Vibrant Life Center lead to instant results?cold-laser lipo body contouring melts fat cells on contact. Long-term solutions include customized weight-loss programs, wellness coaching and raw-foods education, detoxification programs, customized homeopathic remedies, and holistic approaches to healing, from acupuncture and body-wraps to massage and ion footbaths.
The technicians at The Body Sculpt Xpress dedicate themselves to ultrasound-cavitation body sculpting, a noninvasive technique already popular in Europe and Australia and featured on the Dr. Oz Show. They customize treatments based on the thickness of fat and its distribution throughout the body.
