At Beauty Lounge Medical Spa, the staff strives to boost clients' self-image. To do so, they guide them through weight-loss programs, rejuvenate skin with exfoliating dermaplaning, and fill wrinkles with Botox. Licensed medical professionals also wield lasers designed for hair removal, body sculpting, vein removal, and photofacials.
Plush white furniture pops against the spa's taupe interior where technicians and aestheticians customize treatments to individuals. They use state-of-the-art technology during a range of cosmetic treatments. Lasers resurface tired complexions, as well as dissolve acne, hair and conspicuous leg veins. In other treatment rooms, the technicians draw upon products from Botox and Latisse to beautify faces before an important award ceremony or the Trampoline Wipeout Video Awards ceremony.
Med spas and day spas may appear similar, but in reality, they're about as different as a baby and the American president he's dressed as. In order to earn the name med spa, a business must employ physicians, who oversee the various beauty treatments, as well as a medically trained staff. That's because the services offered by med spas tend to be more invasive than those offered at day spas.
At Tre Jolie MediSpa, a board-certified surgeon leads a team that includes skincare specialists and a registered nurse with more than 35 years of experience. These experts seek to improve appearances with services that range from Botox and Juvederm injections to laser hair removal and laser vein therapy.
Tre Jolie MediSpa also fine tunes bodies with less invasive services, such as facials that use PCA Skin products, body waxing, and Latisse eyelash-enhancement serum.
The technicians at the Laser Creations medical clinic wield laser light to tackle a multitude of services, from laser hair removal to skincare treatments such as skin resurfacing and vein removal. With the Venus Freeze system, they can diminish the appearance of cellulite and tighten sagging skin. Beyond light-driven treatments, certified professionals can rejuvenate faces with dermal-filler injections or use chemical peels to fade red marks resulting from bobbing for lobsters.
Helmed by Southern California Super Doctor Stephen McNeese, Ultimate Body Aesthetics helps guests achieve their beauty goals with body-sculpting and skin-smoothing services. Registered nurses deftly administer facial fillers to smooth out wrinkles and laser treatments to boost collagen and zap off unwanted hair. They also use noninvasive weight-loss treatments, such as body wraps, infrared-sauna sessions, and supervised weight-loss programs, to make bodies slim enough to fit through doggy doors.
Dermatology and Laser Medical Center's Alex Khadavi knows so much about skincare, he's a go-to expert for both celebrities and day-to-day patients. The board-certified dermatologist and industry innovator founded Advanced Skin and Hair, a company that uses years of clinical research to develop products for hair loss, acne, and signs of aging. Using his expertise in the area of blemish abolishment, Dr. Khadavi helped a friend of Tori Spelling get rid of acne before her big day on an episode of the Oxygen network's Tori & Dean: sTORIbook Weddings. He used his Clearogen protocol to assist a self-conscious teen with her severe acne on an episode of The Tyra Show, and appeared on Extra to promote his natural Revivogen formula, which is designed to reverse hair loss caused by genetics or sandpaper pillowcases.
Dr. Khadavi is also the center's chief cosmetic surgeon and specializes in medical procedures, such as Mohs micrographic surgery for skin cancer. He's written numerous magazine articles on cosmetic treatments, and is a national trainer for Botox, Juv?derm, Restylane, and advanced laser treatments.
