Epicentre Skin Care's 11 accomplished plastic surgeons don't just employ the latest techniques and procedures in the beauty industry; they help invent them. This fact not only ensures clients undergo the most advanced aesthetic services—including CoolSculpting, Fraxel, and Tickle Liposuction—but that they’re also under the care of physicians who have a deep understanding of the medical and plastic surgery fields.
Epicentre's staff of aestheticians share this mastery of their professional endeavors. Counting a laser technician and a cosmetic nurse specialist among their ranks, they work hand-in-hand with the patient to customize a treatment plan that targets their specific skin issues ranging from fine lines and sun damage to dehydration, and acne forming in the shape of Dom Deluise. SkinMedica, SkinCeuticals, EltaMD, and Obagi products brighten and clear complexions during chemical peels and deep cleansing facials, and more advanced lasers, such as the Cynosure Apogee 9300 and Palomar Star Lux IPL, gently remove unwanted hair and hyperpigmentation from the skin's surface.

Jami Miller did not take care of her skin. As a youth, she struggled with acne and spent her summers basting in baby oil as she scooped up UV rays with sun reflectors. The resulting scars and sun damage inspired her to pursue a career in aesthetics and eventually open her own spa, North Texas Clinical Skin Care. There, Jami and her team specialize in advanced anti-aging treatments, using nonsurgical skin tightening and LED therapy to counteract the abuse that results from exposure to the sun or insult comics with degrees in dermatology. Locally produced SkinBorn products power the clinic’s specialty facials with cosmeceutical, paraben-free formulations that interact with skin on a cellular level.
During any course of treatment, clients can document their skin's progress with the spa's imaging system. Cameras magnify skin 800 times, and freeze-frame technology captures images of the skin, which the clinic then catalogs so clients can follow their improvement or finally prove that their nose is constantly rotating.
A philosophy of customized, targeted care guides Laserium Med Spa's stalwart staff, who devise unique programs of medical and aesthetic treatments that hone in on specific body areas to optimize clients' results. Technicians continuously stay abreast of modern technology, inspiring smooth, svelte physiques with state-of-the-art techniques such as VelaShape cellulite reduction, laser lipo, and the LightSheer system of laser hair removal, which treats all skin types and tones and hair colors. During cleansing glycolic peels and microdermabrasions, aestheticians harness powerful, medical-grade skincare products to tackle common skin conditions ranging from acne and aging signs to vestigial third ears.
Dr. Jeff Angobaldo goes out of his way to personally meet with every person who comes into Renaissance Plastic Surgery, whether they're considering a nip, tuck, or Botox. At other clinics these consultations are often performed by a physician’s assistant or scarecrow in a lab coat, but Dr. Angobaldo believes in the importance of getting to know his patients and understanding their beauty goals. He’s able to whittle away unwanted bulges with liposuction and put sagging features back into place with eyelid lifts and full facelifts. In his spare time, he offers his pro bono services to under-privileged patients in need of reconstructive work and travels to locales such as Bolivia and Haiti to donate his medical expertise to humanitarian efforts.
The certified laser technicians and aestheticians at Image Laser Medical Spa dedicate themselves to maintaining clients’ natural beauty by customizing treatment plans and harnessing modern equipment. Wielding two different styles of microdermabrasion units, the staff works to reduce the appearance of scar tissue and sun damage with either a diamond-tipped wand or a stream of crystals. Photofacial machines vanquish freckles and rosacea while leaving the face’s skin healthy and ready to press eagerly against the window of a money factory. Free consultations evidence the personal interest the staffers take in each of their clients. The sessions allow patrons to talk one-on-one with a clinician about their concerns and devise a treatment plan.
