With more than 25 years of experience in the fields of hair care and skin care, Karen Marlise knows what aesthetic services to use to make her clients look their best. She is skilled in the art of permanent cosmetics and has mastered the high-tech marksmanship of laser hair reduction. Traditional facials and peels encourage a healthy and refreshed complexion, while cellulite treatments and body-contouring services work to refine the silhouette.
Karen is the sole proprietor of her private medical spa studio, and she does her work under the supervision of Dr. Valdes.
There are many paths to self improvement. The Laser and Cosmetic Center recognizes both internal and external routes to perfection. Hypnotherapist Maureen draws on experience accumulated at Temple, Barry, and Harvard universities to help patrons use their own hidden inner strengths to quit smoking, lose weight, or improve their general mindsets.
Dr. A. Valdes, the resident physician at the center, helps work on the surface to work towards beauty. He isn't fond of scalpels, preferring to rejuvenate his clients' faces without surgery, smoothing out wrinkles and adding volume with dermal injections. He administers injections of Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, and other fillers, targeting areas such as crow's feet and smile lines. He can even perform non-surgical face-lifts and lessen double chins without hiding one beneath a Victorian ruff.
The center's expert staff also performs a variety of other cosmetic treatments. Their Candela laser removes unwanted body hair, as do electrolysis sessions. Facials, microdermabrasion, and clinical peels help to clarify complexions, while permanent makeup lends definition to eyebrows and lips. There's a Harvard-educated hypnotherapist on staff as well, who strives to curb bad habits and addictions.
With a background in pediatrics and nearly 30 years in practice, medical director Dr. Sheryl Haynes added aesthetic and laser therapies to her rich resumé following her move to Florida in 1981. Along with Dr. Robby Rockets, medical aesthetician Noelle Krauth, and licensed massage therapist Sheryl Merz, Dr. Haynes maintains a relaxing atmosphere––complete with verdant plants and cozy massage tables––where clients can indulge in a variety of medical and clinical services. Weight-loss programs aid participants in shedding unwanted pounds, and photofacials tackle irregular skin texture, acne scars, and skin damaged from bathing in the actual sun.
When Dr. George Kamajian isn’t busy lecturing on the international circuit, publishing medical articles, or writing books, he oversees his staff of aestheticians at Dr. K’s Med Spa. His team specializes in the use of advanced technology to fight the aging process without invasive plastic surgery. Some of those results-oriented treatments include the use of Cutera lasers, bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, Fraxel laser treatments, or beauty injections. Further bolstering the team’s time-reversing skin services is a menu of spa treatments that includes peels, facials, and massages, which aim to relax, improve skin tone, and punish wrinkles for their crimes against the face.
Ridding unwanted hair from clients' bodies since 1975, the skincare specialists at European Wax Center have had plenty of time to perfect the four-step waxing process. First, a specialist cleanses the skin and layers it with pre-wax oil so the wax adheres to the hair and not the skin. Next, the specialist applies exclusive EWC Comfort Wax crafted in Paris from beeswax, which is gentler to the skin than traditional wax or wax made from ground-up rocks. Finally, after the hair has been removed, a rejuvenation product is applied to freshly waxed areas, leaving behind soft, silky-smooth skin.
