Denice Schwind knows skin. A board-certified physician assistant and cosmetic dermatology specialist, she has devoted nearly the past decade to advanced training in aesthetic treatments. 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. The aestheticians can fine-tune pores with treatments ranging from facials and microdermabrasion, to nonsurgical, anti-aging alternatives such as laser rejuvenation and exfoliating chemical peels. The clinic also specializes in injections and dermal fillers, and has been recognized by Allergan as a Platinum Plus Certified Partner. But Pūr Skin Clinic aims to be more than just a pretty façade—the haven is dedicated to serving the community by supporting a variety of charitable organizations.
At Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center, owner and triple board-certified surgeon Dr. Donald Wortham uses his expertise and certifications in cosmetic, facial plastic and reconstructive, and head-and-neck surgery to sculpt and contour bodies during a range of surgical procedures. Because plastic surgery is a weighty decision, the doctor strives to inform each patient about the details about their desired service and tailor each procedure to the patient receiving it. A thorough presurgical consultation not only helps the patient understand their procedure, but also informs the physician about the patient's aesthetic concerns. With this knowledge, the surgeon devises a custom treatment plan and presents it to the patient through detailed discussion and spirited rounds of Pictionary.
Since 1996, a medical aesthetician has helmed Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center's full-service med spa. To ensure clients get the best effects, the aesthetician personally researches and evaluates many skincare lines before offering them for purchase. They remove unwanted hair with a LightSheer laser and perform a slate of Aromatic spa facials, clinical chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments.
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.
Zara Beauty and Spa's clients don't need to hop in an airplane to get Eastern-inspired beauty treatments. Instead, they can walk into Zara's soothing confines, where the staff has mastered a wide range of intricate services, many involving natural herbs and ingredients. Staff members can decorate hands with traditional henna tattoos, pluck stray eyebrows with threading services, and incorporate gold-infused products in Ayurvedic-style facials. The spa also offers more contemporary services such as skin peels or microdermabrasions, as opposed to manicures set to techno music.

The customized facial package at Dermavita is a skin-rejuvenating treatment completely tailored to each individual face. After an initial personal skin evaluation, the aesthetician will determine the most appropriate combination of facial treatments for each client. The 60-minute facial may include a specialized sequence of microdermabrasion, which polishes away blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles, and tarnish; deep pore cleansing to unpack pores' oversized purses of makeup residue, dead skin, and cookie crumbs; and a vitamin-and-collagen therapy to stimulate the living skin beneath the surface. Other treatment possibilities include an enzyme exfoliation, which removes rough, dry skin and softens the face, as well as a light chemical peel to restore your youthful appearance. A hydrating treatment locks in moisture, keeping skin soft, pliable, and luminous enough to help you read Proust in the dark, as the author intended. No matter which combination your skin requires, the customized facial aims to improve the tone, texture, and clarity of your skin, softening lines, stimulating collagen, and treating skin damage.
