Bella Medica's alternative cosmetic treatments address a host of bodily concerns—from aging and loose skin to smoking habits and weight gain—using natural, toxin-free green spa practices.

One of the only superficial peels suitable for all skin types, the Vitalize peel incurs little to no downtime after treatment.
Dr. William D. Yates can empathize with patients afflicted by receding hairlines—he used to be one of them. A transplant not only restored his hair, but also rejuvenated his waning self-confidence.

The treatments range from hair transplants to stimulation of tired hair follicles with low-level lasers.
