At Personal Esthetics by M.E., a master medical aesthetician addresses skin problems with facials, chemical peels, and eye treatments. The aesthetician goes beyond traditional treatments with IPL facials, which use pulses of light to correct pigmentation and age spots. Micro-needling treatments treat a number of imperfections including fine lines, stretch marks, and hair loss. Personal Esthetics also offers beauty treatments, including eyelash extensions that create fuller, longer lashes.
Piloted by Board-certified physician Dr. Ehsan Hadjbian, the Vein Institute of Utah’s welcoming and experienced staff aims to relieve restless, painful, and cramping legs from the constraints of varicose and spider veins. During sclerotherapy treatments, Dr. Hadjbian will inject unsightly blood tunnels with medicine using a delicate needle. Over the course of 2–5 months, the vessel’s lining will dry out and break down, allowing the body to re-absorb it into the same black hole that sucks in stray thoughts and undigested Twizzlers. As blood is redirected to healthier veins, legs can experience improved circulation and a clearer skin canvas. A consultation and evaluation with the doctor before treatments is required and is included with this deal.
The physician-supervised technicians at Dry Creek Laser and Aesthetics knead out muscle stiffness with a classic Swedish massage aided by soothing, heated stones. Healing hands apply long, fluid strokes of varying depth, stimulating circulation to spread oxygen and vital nutrients to every corner of the corpus, helping to naturally cleanse bodily byways of toxins, lactic acid, and clumps of dried leaves. Stress and stiffness are swiftly shooed away with concentrated attention on areas of tension or soreness, providing relief from strains and spasms and restoring joint suppleness. The warm rocks help to melt frigid muscles faster, allowing the technician to access the deepest muscular recesses without applying extra pressure; heated, all-natural massage oil keeps the skin suit soft and human hinges from rusting in the cold.
Spa Trouve derives its name from the French word for “found,” which hints at the brand-new self-image visitors to this med spa may discover. The staff physicians and technicians use their deft experienced hands to perform skin-resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments, which stave off signs of age, scarring, and stubborn “Kick Me” post-it notes. They perform laser-based hair-removal and skin-rejuvenation treatments with Syneron elos Plus machines, radio frequency–based skin treatments with eMatrix, and vibration-based exfoliation with Vibraderm. Other skilled experts perform dermal-filler injections and cosmetic surgical procedures. Spa Trouve’s master aestheticians work with clients to develop customized skincare regimens using products such as SkinCeuticals, organic Lira Cosmeceuticals, SkinMedica, Obagi, and jane iredale mineral makeup.
At the Institute of Facial and Cosmetic Surgery, cosmetic surgeons Brent D. Kennedy and Steven Constantine use their expertise to bolster patients' appearances. Dr. Kennedy, who holds both a medical and a dental degree, established the institute in 1988 to he train doctors from across the country in a continuing-education fellowship program. He also shares his extensive knowledge as a clinical associate professor of aesthetic maxillofacial surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, and has seen his surgical techniques published in several medical journals and textbooks. His colleague, Dr. Constantine, combines his experience in surgical procedures with a deep-seated desire to get to know his patients and witness the positive mental transformation that follows the physical one.
In the 7,000-square-foot state-licensed surgical facility—which offers overnight stays and 24-hour nursing care—the duo performs a variety of procedures, ranging from face-lifts and tummy tucks to laser skin resurfacing. A master aesthetician is on hand to care for skin with anti-aging GlyMed Plus and Obagi products.
After studying at the University of Utah, Emory University, and Vanderbilt, Dr. Justin Johnsen returned to his native Utah to raise his family and begin to realize his dream of helping those suffering from ocular and facial trauma. At Utah Eye & Facial Plastic Surgery, he and his trained aesthetician administer multiple types of surgical and nonsurgical treatments for the face, ranging from four types of cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Restylane—to the removal of painful eyelid tumors.
The doctor is happy to consult with any prospective client beforehand—and for free—in order to review all options and develop a rapport that can later be applied to a comedy bit.
