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.
New Orleans native Dr. Jonathan Weiler and his staff enhance natural beauty with cosmetic procedures and laser services that remove tattoos and unsightly veins. They also provide minimally invasive treatments that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The aestheticians at Dimitri Dermatology exfoliate face-skin and shrink pores during 30-minute microdermabrasion sessions. Upon arrival, patients discuss their countenance's history with a staff member before handing it over for scrubbing, ensuring that each session is appropriately tailored to account for sensitivity and loose glass eyes. After enjoying a manual cleaning by the hands of an aesthetician, faces find a temporary home under microdermabrasion machines, which aim to shuffle off expired cells to reveal the younger, healthy flesh waiting in the wings. Because wrinkles are caused in part by excess dead skin, microdermabrasion treatments may also reduce lines on the face.
A thriving practice founded by two accomplished doctors, Devereux & Nguyen Orthodontics cleans and corrects carrot cutters using a comfortable and metal-less alternative to braces. The straightening process begins with a full exam, which maps out tonsil caves using x-ray cameras and impressionable teeth trays. A 3-D graphics program synthesizes this information into a detailed chomper chart, helping doctors design a finely tuned set of invisible fang shifters that can help erase mouth gaps and ease crowding.
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.
