Desiree Chmura was a featured aesthetician at the 2010 Aesthetic Everything Oscar Gifting Suite, and, as she pampered famous pores before the Academy Awards, she realized she wanted to open up her own med spa. She's trained in a sweeping array of medical-grade skincare and cosmetic disciplines and has advised listeners on Cosmo's XM radio show on how to reduce inches with a seaweed wrap and how to ensnare a crush with a pair of tweezers.
To create her spa, Desiree corralled a staff of nurses and aestheticians. With treatments that range from deep-cleansing facials and ear candling to dermal fillers and photofacials, guests of all beautification goals can find a service right for them.
At Visage Skincare Spa and Cosmetic Laser Center, a highly trained staff cultivates beauty and wellness with relaxation services and anti-aging treatments. Part med spa and part day spa, the facility teems with massage therapists who knead away muscle tension, paramedical aestheticians who tighten skin with Thermage treatments, and board-certified nurse practitioners who inject FDA-approved wrinkle smoothers such as Botox and Juvéderm. More high-tech than a horse-drawn spaceship, a Visia imaging system guides complexion analyses, measuring sun damage and hyperpigmentation to help technicians build custom skincare plans. The spa also doubles as a party destination, where revelers can indulge in champagne and hors d’oeuvres between facials and massages.
Unwanted hair, spider veins, and hyperpigmentation have an enemy in SpafitRx?s technicians: the licensed and certified team's mission is to clear epidermises of such interruptions. SpafitRx wants to ensure that customers are armed with as much knowledge as possible, so their site is full of information. Pages on the site delve into what clients should do on the treatment day, what they can expect after a session, and what the laser feels like. One page is even dedicated to the history of laser hair removal, which started in the late ?70s when NASA astronauts wanted to go to the beach with hairless Martians.
Dr. Scott Blyer is a board-certified MD, cosmetic surgeon, and published author who oversees surgical and nonsurgical enhancements. Inside of Cameo Surgical Center’s lavish offices, where modern white furniture cuts profiles against blazing orange walls, the staff of doctors, aestheticians, and nurses attends to facial, breast, and body surgery to help their clients regain their youthful and beautiful appearances. A slate of nonsurgical services such as Botox injections are also available, as well as nourishing facials inside the med spa.
Nature's Touch Day Spa's all-natural sugaring-solution components—water, sugar, and lemon—sound more appropriate for a recipe than a hair-removal treatment. However, the solution attaches to individual hair strands rather than the skin, so it removes hair with significantly less pain than traditional waxing while also exfoliating the skin. Staff members can enhance this service by adding all-natural pine resin to the treatment, which ousts stubborn hairs and prevents ingrown hairs. In addition, they use threading techniques to precisely shape body hair and harness intense pulsed-light equipment to remove hair with lasers.
At Advanced Dermatology Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, a team of dermatologists featured in magazines such as Glamour and Men's Fitness oversee an array of treatments. Together, they alleviate skin conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Alternatively, they beautify skin with lasers, tightening sagging areas or removing unwanted hair. Their cosmetic surgeries, meanwhile, tweak physiques while maintaining a natural look.
