With 25 years of experience treating hair loss under their belts, the experienced doctors at The Hair Loss Control Clinic aim to combat hair loss in men and women with painless laser hair-therapy treatments, earning the clinic a mention from WWLTV. During the consultation, doctors scrutinize scalps, explain the treatment, and answer patient questions, such as “Why doesn’t male pattern baldness create more interesting designs?” Patients can sit and relax as a safe low-light-level laser, which boasts a 30-year track record and a successful FDA clinical trial, haloes heads in red-light energy in an effort to rout out male and female pattern baldness, thinning hair, alopecia areata, and traction alopecia. The light works to stimulate metabolism and dormant disco-dance moves in cells, helping follicles repair themselves.
Esthetic MD Med Spa Medical Director Dr. Herbert Ichinose understands that each client is unique and approaches his or her skincare concerns accordingly. The professor and dermatopathologist, who has nabbed the Mellon Award from Tulane and recognition from New Orleans Magazine, restores a youthful glow to faces with Photo Actif light therapy, microcurrent face-lifts, and Clarisonic facial treatments. He also helps clients ward off wrinkles with Botox and uncovers natural beauty with Starflower organic skincare products, Jane Iredale chemical-free makeup, and Nectifirm creams, which aim to make necks wrinkle-free like an origami giraffe. Esthetic MD Med Spa also offers Swedish and deep-tissue massages as well as body peels that incorporate vitamin C and salicylic acid.
The beauty experts at Slidell Aesthetics believe healthy, youthful-looking skin is the direct result of living a balanced lifestyle. They also believe that proper skincare, like changing your socks, is less of an occasional pampering experience and more of a lifestyle choice.
To help clients get radiant skin, Slidell's staff uses only advanced, noninvasive services enhanced with Obagi and DermAware products. The HydraFacial quickly cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes complexions using a controlled pressure of antioxidant serum and hyaluronic acid. For those suffering from acne, LED blue-light therapy works with the HydraFacial to eliminate bacteria from newly cleaned pores.
Slidell's body wraps call upon naturally derived ingredients, such as green tea, to stimulate collagen production and grapefruit essential oil to tone the skin, and a hot-cocoa stone massage eases tension from the body with warm volcanic rocks. But of all the services offered at Slidell, the most natural treatment is body sugaring, which gently removes unwanted hairs with a paste made from pure sugar, water, and lemons.
Dimitri Dermatology liberates skin of pestilent spider veins with sclerotherapy procedures. During treatments, a member of Dr. Elizabeth Dimitri’s team first injects the offending epidermal arachnids with a solution that forces vessels to swell and self-bind. As the treated blood clots, veins begin to recoil like bashful pythons, ultimately admitting defeat and fading from view. Sclerotherapy requires no downtime (although strenuous activity is discouraged) and typically incurs only slight redness at the remedied area. Two sessions are usually sufficient for complete vein banishment, although especially ornery squatters may require additional treatments.
At Premier Laser and Body Sculpting, laser technicians Annie Jenkins and Ashton Naron levy laser technology for cosmetic procedures that slim silhouettes and rejuvenate skin. The expert technicians smooth skinscapes with laser hair removal and stimulate collagen production with fractional laser resurfacing to mitigate wrinkles, acne scars, and the sun damage that results from too much time spent in the butter pool. The clinic treats hyperhidrosis—excessive sweating—with a range of topical solutions, oral medications, or more dramatic procedures if necessary, and ousts unsightly vessels with laser vein removal. Its SmartLipo laser slims silhouettes, and IPL skin rejuvenation expels blemishes from cheeks.
TLC Med-Spa spruces up lackluster skinscapes with an array of laser- therapy services. Sport a set of flaw-free gams with a vein- therapy session, which reduces the appearance of spider veins by heating the offending blood ducts until their eventual, critically acclaimed demise. The 15- to 30-minute procedure yields little to no irritation, requires little to no downtime, and reveals an unblemished, even surface in one to three treatments, perfect for shelf mounting or public movie projections.
