Mana Medical Spa's skincare specialists help patients "enhance their Mana," or essence, with wrinkle- and stress-reducing treatments. During facials and peels, aestheticians cloak reposing mugs in a collagen-renewing formula to fade indicators of time, such as fine lines and page-a-day calendars grafted to foreheads. The mentally wound can let loose with the ancient healing modality of massage therapy, which targets and alleviates chronic conditions such as headaches, carpal tunnel, and arthritis.
Drs. J. Phillip and Robert Garcia are so committed to proper skincare that they invented their own medical product—Belladerm-Rx, a prescription formula meant to stave off signs of aging and environmental damage. Today, the doctors and their staff at Reviva Medical Spa customize at-home regimens of Belladerm-Rx for patients, and apply their expertise onsite during several skincare services.
These treatments combine a calm, pampering environment with medical precision. Licensed aestheticians administer facials that target problems from acne to fine lines, as well as mini-treatments that refresh complexions in 30 minutes. The Bella Vitamin C Blast, for example, firms up the face with a 30% concentration of vitamin C, the equivalent of eskimo-kissing an orange for four hours. More in-depth treatments range from microdermabrasion to chemical peels, the latter of which are grouped into three levels depending on their strength. Injectables such as Botox and Radiesse fend off wrinkles, and Ultherapy diminishes the appearance of sagging skin through applications of ultrasound. The spa also offers massage and laser hair-removal sessions.
One part salon and spa, one part fitness center, Alaric Health Beauty and Wellness is a one-stop shop aiming to glam up, firm up, and wind down clients' bodies. Hairstylists sweep men?s and women?s manes into trendy styles and nourish scalps with deep conditioner and hydrating scalp treatments. During one-hour Swedish massages, long, flowing strokes untie knotted muscles and help rejuvenate auras cluttered with stress and stale boxes of chi, and basic and deep pore-cleansing facials exfoliate visages to help skin regain a youthful glow. Inside the full-service fitness center, bodies work toward fitness goals among rows of weight and cardio machines, and can attempt to expedite results with help from a personal trainer or prescription weight-loss program.
Jacksonville Anti-Aging Institute helps reduce the visible tolls of aging with its wide range of medical and aesthetic treatments. The clinic employs Cutera laser systems for many of its treatments, which harness beams specifically designed to remove spider veins and clear complexions. After starting up the Cutera XEO laser and showering it with compliments, the team of medical professionals targets light at unsightly veins in an effort to collapse the vessel, allowing it to be gradually absorbed by the body. The spider-vein removal session lasts up to an hour and is noninvasive, without the discomfort and post-op downtime of surgical treatments. Alternatively, the LimeLight facial uses an intense pulsed-light treatment to let visages bask in therapeutic luminescence while lasers traverse the skin like glow worms fresh from a swim in the fountain of youth. The session lasts approximately 30 minutes and is designed to even skin tone, as well as treat sun damage, redness, poor cursive, and other facial blemishes.
At InfiniTrim, technicians slim physiques without surgery. instead, they employ the LipoTranz fat removal system, which draws on technologies from laser beams to radio frequencies. Ironically, though, the cutting edge technology actually works to mimic an age-old process: natural metabolism. The treatments break up fat non-invasively, then shift it into the lymphatic system, where the body can dispose of it naturally.
These signature contouring treatments are just one of the ways the team works to beautify physiques. Their InfiniLase laser hair removal treatments, for example, permanently minimize hair growth in areas such as the underarms, while services such as microdermabrasion, peels, and laser-based acne treatments help refine complexions.
