Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
Dr. A. Ahmadi of Avante Plastic Surgery is double-board certified by the American Boards of Plastic Surgery and Surgery, a fact that is reflected in his ability to combine medical precision with aesthetic outcomes. With his team of technicians, Dr. Ahmadi utilizes his medical and aesthetic skills during services including facials, Botox injections, and his trademarked LipoTuck procedure, a combination of liposuction and skin tightening.
Since completing his residency in obstetrics and gynecology more than 20 years ago, Dr. James Kern has helped women maintain their inner well-being. Now, with the addition of medical aesthetics, Kern helps men and women alike showcase their outer beauty through both surgical and noninvasive procedures, from Botox to weight loss. Transformations can take place under the doctor-directed HCG diet, which deploys the HCG pregnancy hormone to speedily release unwanted fat cells in both men and women. Through the Body-Jet liposuction system, water flushes out fat to help sculpt and contour the body more effectively than a slip ‘n’ slide souped up with a pressure washer.
The certificates that line the walls of Sugar Land Plastic Surgery’s consultation room do more than simply confirm Dr. John T. Nguyen's credentials. These frames also provide a small glimpse into the major accomplishments he has achieved since relocating from Saigon to the United States as a child. From attending the University of Texas Medical School to earning board certification to founding Sugar Land Plastic Surgery, Dr. Nguyen has continually built upon his expertise while adding to his educational office decor.
Within the practice’s modern treatment rooms, Dr. Nguyen and his staff work diligently to enhance clients’ natural beauty with surgical and medspa services. All appointments begin with an in-depth consultation and exam to chart the patient’s medical history, current health, and beauty concerns before a technician creates an individualized treatment plan. The office’s Visia skin-analysis system allows for further personalization, providing digital images of the face that reveal concerns such as sun damage and hyperpigmentation. The office also tends to aesthetic needs with cosmetic surgery, dermal fillers, and laser hair and tattoo removal.
The professional instructors at The Transformation Studio use world-inspired dance classes to teach prospective hip shakers the ways of self-swiveling. Belly dancing flexifies hips with slow serpentine moves and sensual swaying, strengthening the core as it improves pliability to a Gumby-esque degree. Bhangra—a traditional, energetic harvest dance from the Punjab region of northern India—combines Indian hip-hop moves with high-energy aerobics and elements of kickboxing to shimmy up your heart rate. Hoofers wishing to pay homage to New World danceforms can sample a more piquant workout in the hour-long Zumba class, a Columbian export that melds salsa, merengue, mambo, and other Latin American dance and musical styles into a calorie-slaying regimen that tones and strengthens legs and thighs to astonishing, Bond-villain proportions.
Pieces by local artists, yoga demonstrations looping on a flat-screen TV, and comfy furniture all line the sun-soaked lobby at Bikram Yoga Sugar Land. The waiting area exudes the same soothing vibes students find inside the studio, where teachers lead 90-minute yoga sessions. Each class consists of 26 postures and two breathing exercises, which pupils of all ages and body types enact in a room heated between 105 and 107 degrees. The heat helps bodies stretch during the intensive cardiovascular workout, which burns calories, melts away stress, and increases flexibility.
If that sounds overwhelming, don't fret––the studio hosts beginner's classes several times a day, and supplies helpful info for first timers. Bikram Yoga Sugar Land even offers courses for kids, special-needs children, and babysitting for moms. Once class lets out, students can enjoy one of the studio's relaxing spa treatments, which range from massage therapy to organic facials.
