As a family physician, Dr. Zainab Nawab advocates preventive medicine, but she also recognizes that aging is the one condition no amount of treatment can prevent. That's why, in her role at Vitalize MD, she oversees services designed to offset the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. Her methods are decidedly high-tech: when she's not tightening the skin with 3DEEP radio-frequency treatments, she's erasing fine lines with the Fraxel system's microscopic lasers and injectables such as Botox and Dysport. Even the products the center uses during its five facials—and sells to clients—have a medical bent, from the clinically tested SkinMedica line of cleansers to Jane Iredale's dermatologist-endorsed mineral makeup.
Founded by certified electrologist, aesthetician, and laser technician Donna Bayrouty, Laserderm Medispa's wide array of cosmetic services reflects its founder's versatility. Her skilled staff thwarts wrinkles and blemishes during facial treatments that incorporate Isolaz beams or ultrasonic frequencies to spur collagen production. The staff picks up Laserscope's medical-grade Lyra during hair-removal treatments and applies lash extensions and permanent makeup.

RenovoMD's 30- to 45-minute IPL treatment beams high-intensity broadband light pulses beneath the epidermal surface, to trigger collagen and connective tissue regrowth and minimize the visibility of sun damage, age spots, scars, facial veins, and rosacea. Within RenovoMD's calming confines, vibrant plants offset softly glowing light fixtures, neutral beige walls, and nonconfrontational carpeting.
At age 13, Jacqueline designed a science-fair project focused on age management, having developed a fascination for skincare by watching her mother and grandmother go through their daily beauty regimens. As Jacqueline grew up, she took that passion and became a licensed master aesthetician, opening Jacqueline Jase Face & Body Center in 2009. The center is named in part for her mother and grandmother—Jane and Rose—who Jacqueline names as the two most influential women in her life. Today, Jacqueline fights aging and nourishes skin with facials and herbal wraps, swaddling clients in natural and organic products from brands such as Bioelements. She also applies Nufree Hair Removal to legs and arms to remove unwanted hair, and fastens NovaLash extensions to eyelids to create longer, denser lashes. Realizing a connection between stress and skin deterioration, Jacqueline became a licensed massage therapist in 2010 and now relieves stress and chronic aches with Swedish and deep-tissue modalities.
Bellissima Skin Care Therapy's licensed aestheticians soothe both the skin and conscience through the use of guilt-free products. They favor Skin Script products for their plant-based formulas, calibrated by a team of physicians and aesetheticians working in tandem. They choose medical-grade IMAGE Skincare products for more serious skin conditions, since the formulas are petrochemical free and never tested on animals, and their aromas are derived from pure essential oils.
