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.
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.
With more than 14 years of internal medicine expertise under her stethoscope, Dr. Janna Masser and her certified staff devote themselves to shrinking circumferences and smoothening sagging skin with noninvasive technologies. Dr. Masser also focuses on specialized treatments for women, including menopausal therapies, breast consultations, and stiletto sharpening.
Jennifer Kunkle focuses on two specialties: tuning up athletes' bodies and being a mom. She enjoys her career as a massage therapist and owner of Plano Clinical & Sports Massage because it leaves her time for both therapy and motherhood. "I don't look at it as a job, but more like a way I can help people," she says.
That's exactly what she does, removing tension and promoting healing with a combination of her hands, bamboo sticks, and hot stones. Whichever tool she uses, she customizes the amount of pressure to her client's comfort level. She reports that many of her visitors are surprised by how much pressure she can deliver, since she's only five feet tall. "It is commonly thought that a person has to be big to give deep massages, but that just isn't true," she says, presumably to point out that anyone could have robot hands.
