For Via Rejuvenation's providers, it's important that cosmetic procedures require little downtime. As such, they rely on a range of non-invasive surgical procedures to reduce signs of aging and bring a healthy, youthful glow back into their clients' faces. Micro-needling procedures cultivate new collagen cells and other tissues, which can erase fine lines and help clients understand how starfish feel when they grow limbs back. The providers also perform platelet-rich plasma therapy, which uses the clients' own plasma--once it's spun and concentrated in a centrifuge--injected into specific areas to promote new skin and blood vessel growth.
Medical Director Dr. Marilyn Tompkins, ARNP, busies Radiant MedSpa's staff with an array of services that refine skin surfaces. Injectables such as Botox and Sculptra free faces of wrinkles or circles around the eyes that reveal age. IPL photofacials and fractional skin-resurfacing treatments leave skin as brilliant as an Einstein wrapped in reflective tape; the spa's laser systems can also halt hair production in follicles or zap away spider veins. Glycolic or lactic acids reveal youthful skin and fight blemishes during chemical peels, and HCG weight-loss programs bolster weight loss with a combination of booster shots, protein shakes, and vitamins.
Ageless Center for Rejuvenation bills itself as Seattle’s premiere center for relaxing and revitalizing the body. Based in the city’s Fremont neighborhood, the Center offers a variety of spa services, with traditional treatments that include facial and overall skin care, while the Medical Day Spa offers every medical enhancement available. There are skin-smoothing laser treatments and procedures for cellulite available here, alongside a range of products for further take-home use. The Center’s true emphasis may be on customers’ emotional and spiritual well-being, however, with its serene and calming environment, overseen by knowledgeable and patient staff. Doctor Barbara J. Schell, the Center’s director, is board-certified both by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Board of Dermatology.
Dr. Keith Ly combines the experience of a board-certified physician with the creativity of an inventor—his past projects include a painless hypodermic needle and an anti-headache pillow—at PureLy Skin Clinic. Here, Dr. Ly offers clients a wealth of aesthetic treatments that help them project outward beauty and confidence. Surgical procedures such as Silhouette lifts—which use minimally invasive sutures to lift and tighten faces—help restore forms to their more youthful selves. Non-invasive treatments include skin-smoothing Botox injections and laser hair-removal, which zaps away unwanted fuzz and any barnacles picked up from sitting motionless in a tide pool.
Dr. Benjamin Killey has notoriously steady hands. They helped him win the 1997 MTNA collegiate state championship in piano for Illinois, and later, to treat ER patients with enough finesse to earn him a feature on TLC's Untold Stories of the ER. The emergency-medicine doctor has since refocused them on cosmetic treatments, undergoing the training and certification that enabled him to supervise Blue Haven Medical Spa.
Today, his hands wield Nd:YAG lasers and medical-grade skincare products that remedy various dermal conditions, including wrinkles and unwanted hair. All of Dr. Killey's laser services, from facials to spider-vein removal, charge by time spent, rather than by area covered, and adjust to fit the client's desired results. He puts patients at ease by ensuring that only physicians, and never interns, administer procedures and by using tools such as chilled-air machines that cool laser-affected pores.

Now, as the owner of Pūr Skin Clinic, she and her skilled colleagues aim to share that expertise by providing premiere services in a modern, upscale environment.
