Founded by the mother-daughter team of Charlene Viscardi, RN, and Dr. Marjorie Viscardi and named by Dr. Viscardi's brother Chris, Medi-Bella Aesthetic and Wellness Center distinguishes itself from other centers with its familial approach to health. The center’s office in a well-kept bungalow brims with homey comfort while imbuing its clients with cosmetic and medical treatments. Services such as laser hair removal and weight-loss treatments instill more confidence in clients, and handpicked skincare products by Obagi and Alyria enhance treatments with high-quality ingredients that reduce wrinkles caused by sun damage, age, or spending too much time in the bathtub.

Dr. Kim Ross likes to help people look and feel their best. By graduating college first in her class and garnering the single dermatology residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, she equipped herself with the skills to do just that. Over a more than 10-year career, Dr. Ross has enhanced the appearances and well-being of countless patients with a meticulous manner that has earned her invitations to present at conferences throughout the country. She and her team perform FDA-approved treatments that bolster images inside and out, including microdermabrasion and chemical peels to freshen skin, cosmetic injections to regain youthful appearances, and laser hair and spider-vein removal to prepare for dates with marble statues.
Paradise Cosmetic MedSpa restores youthful form to bodies of all types by banishing excess fat with patented LAPEX 2000 LipoLaser technology. The low-level, noninvasive laser targets recalcitrant flab that won't respond to exercise, diet, or motivational lullabies. The process pinpoints fat cells deep under the dermis, disrupting their membranes to release intracellular fat and microscopic anchors, which are carried away by the body’s circulation. Each of the 40- to 50-minute procedures helps melt fat away without harming neighboring blood vessels, peripheral nerves, or skin. Although each 40- to 50-minute procedure helps contour the body, Paradise Cosmetic MedSpa recommends a total of nine sessions over three weeks to burn away a total of 2–9 inches of fat from the stomach, hips, back, arms, neck, or knees.
Like the juxtaposition of its building's militaristic past as a World War I airplane hangar with the cheery lime-colored walls and babbling fountains of its current renovated state, Urban Laser Spa pairs two seemingly disparate elements. Its staff members not only provide preventative dental care, but they also focus on clients' appearances with medical, spa-quality skin services. Masterminded by partners Dr. Amy Urban and Dr. Raymond Paxton, the spa's common area helps harmonize its two branches of service with a miniature zen garden, local art, and flickering candles. In the dentistry wing, Dr. Urban performs thorough preventative examinations, cleanings, and whitening services in treatment areas flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows and the soothing white noise of tooth-brushing soundtracks. Dr. Paxton's certified aestheticians perform detailed skin analyses before moving onto their treatments, which can include noninvasive laser therapy, microdermabrasion, and line-smoothing injections.
Dr. Lawrence Broder of Beleza Med Spa began his 16-year career in surgery and primary care, but has shifted his dedication to medical aesthetics, helping people reshape their bodies and evade signs of aging. He continues to build on his surgical knowledge with coursework and bihourly games of Operation, and has slimmed more than 500 physiques with laser-driven SmartLipo and smoothed hundreds of complexions with DOT (dermal optical thermolysis) resurfacing treatments. Dr. Broder supervises each of Beleza's locations, ensuring that every confidence-boosting injection, augmentation, lift, and peel is done with expertise and professionalism.
