When its icy beauty isn't adding a tony touch to episodes of CSI, Blue Medi Spa spruces up the pages of publications from Allure to the Wall Street Journal. Blue's medical director, Dr. Daniel Yamini, has appeared on Entertainment Tonight and Dr. 90210.
Dr. Yamini's expertise stems from double board certification in plastic and general surgery, and he has performed more than 5,000 procedures during his career. He oversees Blue's nonsurgical services, which range from laser and body-contouring treatments to injectables and clinical facials that work better than taping prescription pads over the face.
As Dr. Yamini and his aestheticians tend to bodies, the spa's aquamarine light filters through translucent panels and reflects off of tiling. Stretched fabric and hanging shapes evoke the mobiles of Alexander Calder as space dividers create the feel of an art gallery on Pluto.
Lasers are often associated with evil villains and galactic battles, but the lasers at The Laser Image only have the clients’ best interests at heart. They use the power of their beams to remove unwanted stubble, dissolve spider veins, and boost collagen and elastin production to make faces look younger and give clients more confidence. Dr. Brian Fenmore, in practice for more than two decades, supervises every laser treatment, along with a bevy of other med spa services offered at his center. Oxygen therapy, for example, beautifies skin with topically-applied oxygen infused with antioxidants, while facials and peels, combat skin conditions from aging to acne. Additionally, the center employs an on-staff nutritionist to help patients create healthy diet plans to foster beauty and wellness inside and out.
Belle Visage's co-owners, Tina K and Inez Dunst, first met because of vampires. At the time,Tina was the spa's sole owner, powered by a passion for natural skincare that prompted her to get her aesthetician's license before graduating high school. Inez, meanwhile, was a regular, stopping by often for facials with her actress daughter, Kirsten Dunst. Kirsten needed them to revive her skin after hours in the makeup chair for Interview with a Vampire, which she starred in alongside Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.
A lot has changed in the more than 10 years since then. Kirsten no longer needs her mom's supervision, and Tina and Inez have become fast friends and business partners. One thing has stayed the same, though, besides vampire's popularity: the spa's star-quality facials. Their most popular one, the Diamond File facial, gently removes the face's dead outer layer of skin, with a file equally effective on sensitive skin and thicker skin types, such as bulletproof skin. As it works, the file helps to break up acne scarring, minimize sunspots, and smooth away fine lines.
Time travel might not be possible at Rejuvenate Medical Spa, but the center?s highly trained master injectors are capable of the next best thing: concealing the cosmetic ravages of aging. Overseen by Dr. Bijan Farah, a medical director with board certification in internal and emergency medicine, the staff strives to improve skin tone and texture across the entire body with an arsenal of aesthetic technology. Sciton BBL, Sciton Profile, and Asclepion Mediostar Next systems emit light energy to remedy a number of epidermal concerns, including hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and unwanted stubble. For a slimming approach, the staff contour everything from limbs to waistlines using radio-frequency energy and advanced Cryolipolysis. When coupled with microdermabrasion treatments or injectable dermal fillers, basic facials and chemical peels can help restore a youthful glow to skin without having to duct tape night lights to foreheads.
As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Sophie Shirin works to rid the skin of aesthetic hindrances such as redness and wrinkles, in addition to medical ailments such as dangerous moles and cancer. She personally administers all treatments at her modern office equipped with up-to-date technology. Laser treatments combat the various signs of aging, and injectables reduce fine lines or plump collagen in the face. When scouring birthday suits for carcinomas and melanomas, Dr. Shirin pays extra-close attention, as early detection of these growths provides the best chance for a cure. She’s also specially trained in Mohs micrographic surgery, allowing her to leave healthy tissue intact when removing the malevolent cells.
Together, the four doctors of Tri Health Medical Institute, perform an array of services, from physical therapy to laser hair removal to facials. Weight loss is one of their specialties, for which they offer several solutions. Physician-supervised weight loss programs, for example, use high tech body scanners to measure factors such as metabolic rate, bone mass, and hydration to develop a custom course of treatment that may include fat-burning supplements or B 12 injections. For those more focused on reducing problem spots than total pounds lost, the center also offers ultrasonic cavitation?otherwise known as non-surgical liposuction?that use low-frequency sound waves to melt fat and flush it away.
