Anyone who's completed four full Ironman triathlons must know a thing or two about staying in shape. Add to that the fact that Dr. Brent Larsen is board certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine and has studied the field since 2010, and it's clear why people trust his clinic to provide weight-loss and aesthetic services at SLC Med Spa. The clinic's weight-loss methods are based on scientific testing of the client's metabolism and body composition, a practice that allows the staff of certified personal trainers to draw up meal plans and recommend supplements with greater accuracy than if they were basing their advice on a horoscope stained with meat sauce. On occasion, CoolSculpting provides a machine-assisted boost by crystallizing fat cells with targeted cooling. Peels and injectables such as Botox and Dysport put the finishing touches on complexions as they smooth away blemishes and iron out wrinkles.
Although clients are often there for their own good, the center doesn't feel like somewhere you'd visit as a chore. As guests await their treatments, they watch a flat-screen TV in a waiting room replete with leather furniture, earthen tones, and wood-paneled walls that reflect handsomely off the burnished tile floor.
Nevaeh Medical Spa's medical director, Sandy Peters, is a board-certified nurse practitioner with a masters degree in acute care, a credential she's put to use as a nurse in the United States Army. Sandy spent 14 months overseas, tending to soldiers during the current war effort. Upon her return, she took something she realized in the military?that there's a connection between healthcare and self-esteem?and turned it into a practice. Namely, her thriving med spa.
At the spa, Sandy and her team ply patients with a variety of confidence-boosting treatments. Velashape sessions, for instance, slim circumferences with non-invasive radio-frequency waves and beams of infrared light. Botox and other beauty injections, on the other hand, smooth wrinkles and fine lines. The team also offers laser hair removal, skin tightening, and host of skincare products from brands such as Obagi.
Whether via chemical peels, photofacials, or even Botox injections, combating the signs of aging is the primary goal at Millcreek Laser Cosmetic Center. Guest can visit one of the center’s licensed aestheticians, who will administer deeply exfoliating chemical peels, advanced skin-rejuvenation systems, and laser-light wrinkle-reduction treatments that visibly tone and tighten the visage within a series of three to six sessions. Licensed physicians are also on hand to inject wrinkled foreheads with Botox or Dysport.
Trilogy Medical Center's team of aestheticians and registered nurses perform med-spa services that range from hormone therapy to permanent makeup. The team applies their expertise to bio-identical hormone therapy, which can halt early menopause in men and women. Botox, Dysport, and other cosmetic injections battle the effects of aging, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and chemical peels and microdermabrasion shoo away lingering skin cells from the face's front porch.
At Elase spas, teams of nurses and experienced aestheticians smooth skin and tone bodies with dermal fillers, weight-loss therapy, and laser hair removal. Custom laser programs can zap hair from most body surfaces, and skin-rejuvenation treatments use intense pulsed-light therapy to reduce the appearance of sun spots, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
The Eye Institute of Utah has been providing comprehensive vision care to Utah residents for more than 30 years. The Institute's Director of LASIK Services Dr. Darcy Wolsey and her team use state-of-the-art technology to restore their patients’ vision to 20/20 or better. The Institute was the first practice in Utah to acquire the WaveLight Refractive Suite, which helps to vastly improve the patient experience during LASIK procedures. But LASIK is only one piece of the vision puzzle; the doctors are experts at customizing each patient’s treatment to fit their unique lifestyles. They also specialize in standard and custom cataract surgery, glaucoma, dry eye, cornea, retina, eyelid and facial plastics, and comprehensive eye care.
