At Scar Treatment Center of the Desert Inc., the goal of Guadalupe Ponte, a board certified micro-pigmentation specialist and diplomat of micro-pigmentation from the American Council for Dermagraphic Research, and her staff is to transform any unwanted mark or blemish into smooth, beautiful skin. The services at this full-service medical spa include scar and burn treatments, permanent makeup, light-wave therapy to reduce the appearance of fine lines and skin damage, and permanent cosmetics to create bright, luscious lips and full brows without having to apply makeup every day. Scar Treatment Center also offers a training program for anyone interested in pursuing a career in the field.
Contour Dermatology bolsters patients struggling with friction-inducing strands and stubble with safe, comfortable laser hair-removal techniques. Over the course of three sessions, medically trained staffers teleport black or brunette fuzz from the face or body to a far-off galaxy by aiming a low-energy GentleLase beam at follicular bases. Charged particles carry enough energy to blast away the melanin inside errant bristles but leave the surrounding skin healthy and unharmed. Like planning a date for your parents, the procedure can be slightly uncomfortable, so technicians employ a cool laser tip, gel, or spray to soothe the skin and help spare nerves undue unpleasantness. Most complexions are acceptable candidates for laser hair removal, but clients with a very dark complexion may be subject to a spot test to ensure effective treatment. Clients need three to six sessions on average to impede ill-placed tufts during the active phase of each follicle's growth cycle.
The FDA-approved Venus Concept cellulite-reduction treatment employs bipolar radio frequency and magnetic pulses to break up cellulite deposits and smooth skin. After a consultation to explain the procedure and answer questions, trained staff members guide the noninvasive mechanism over the selected target area, delivering magnetic energy to stimulate blood flow and iron-coated skeletons. The process helps disperse cellulite clumps and boost collagen production, smoothing skin with gentle heat akin to that experienced during a hot-stone massage. As the skin’s surface evens out, the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and enlarged pores disappears like a villain in a house of mirrors. Treatments should be scheduled one week apart.
Led by Dr. Vadim Gurvits, the staff at Premier Laser & Day Spa is also composed of a registered nurse and licensed skincare specialist. Together, this expert crew caters to clients with everything from simple cosmetic treatments—such as waxing and microdermabrasion—to advanced laser services, including tattoo removal, vein therapy, and anticellulite treatments.
After a family trip to Hawaii inspired Spa Escape's signature Marine Mud detoxifying mask, the spa's owners worked to build a menu of services that similarly combined relaxation with a results-driven approach. Their trained staff of therapists and aestheticians helped a great deal in this mission, calling upon years of experience to develop a range of treatments to beautify and relax the body. Though the Marine Mud mask still serves as an ever-popular anchor, the spa's menu now encompasses exfoliating facials, waxing treatments, and massage therapy. Should stresses prove insusceptible to the therapists' targeted strokes and whispered rumors that your shoulders are haunted, the spa's packages grant up to a half-day of relaxation with multiple treatments.
Rejuv Laser Spa's list of treatments ranges far and wide, from anti-aging serums and dermal fillers to laser hair removal and cosmetic surgery. What sets the med spa apart, though, is their board-certified surgeon, Dr. Charles Sarosy, who draws on 16 years of on-the-job experience to perform his various procedures. He gives a consultation to each of his clients, helping them to manage expectations, ensure safety, and learn industry secrets that will allow them to win any game of laser tag. His staff of assistants administers beauty injections and also aids with laser lipo, tattoo removal, or microdermabrasion treatments.
