Dr. Robert Kratschmer's former career as a NASA engineer gave him a desire to make the human form more aerodynamic. Now a board-certified plastic surgeon, he makes physiques sleeker with liposuction, tummy tucks, and cellulite treatments or reshapes ungainly rudders with rhinoplasty. Some of his less invasive treatments include wrinkle-reducing injectables and Vivité facials, which serve as good solutions for those not ready to go under the knife.
The licensed medical staff and industry-certified technicians at Ovation Med Spa seek out the latest laser technologies to transform clients' skin and bodies. To improve fine lines or textural irregularities on light or dark skin, they use the eMatrix RF sublative rejuvenation system, an innovative device featured on the TV show The Doctors. The procedure uses bipolar radio frequency instead of laser energy, and promotes collagen production beneath the skin while leaving the top layer intact. The ultrasonic therapy of the Liposonix machine destroys fat permanently in one treatment, whereas the broad hand piece of the LightSheer Duet laser quickly removes hair or glued-on feathers that did not, in fact, impart the ability to fly.
Amerejuve's board-certified plastic surgeons are experts in an array of cosmetic treatments such as face lifts, tummy tucks, and liposuction. Amerejuve's also offers laser hair removal, an increasingly popular way to give up waxing and shaving for good, and its technology is suitable for all skin tones, allowing clients to give up shaving and waxing for good. Other treatments include breast augmentation, which is the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure offered at Amerejuve. Prior to surgery, doctors walk each patient though their choices and answer any questions about the procedure, which is performed by a board-certified surgeon. Amerejuve boasts 10 Houston-area locations, each decked out with state-of-the-art facilities, designed to help clients look and feel their best.
Since beginning her career in the spa industry more than 30 years ago in Sydney, Australia, Jenifer has developed a distinct skincare approach: she combines natural ingredients and science-based techniques to produce age-defying results. Her team of aestheticians cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes the skin of women and men using products made from essential oils, plants, and sea-based extracts—such as moisturizers, hydrating ampules, and hydrating masks from Yon-Ka, anti-aging serums from Dr. Temt, and hummus stolen from Poseidon's fridge. The delicate scents of aromatherapy oils and melodies of soothing music fill the spa as staff members perform therapeutic massages such as neuromuscular and lymphatic massages, micro-current treatments, facials, microdermabrasions, and waxing services.
While most of his peers were entering bars with fake IDs, 19-year-old Patrick McNamara was entering medical school. A graduate of Hahnemann University School of Medicine and board certified in internal medicine, Dr. McNamara takes a whole-body approach to wellness during his medical-spa services at The Skin Renewal Center. His staff gently abrades skin surfaces with microdermabrasion to remove damaged layers and reduce the appearance of fine lines on faces. Vaser liposuction removes fat using ultrasound technology that liquefies fat without disturbing surrounding tissues. Meanwhile, Thermage tightens skin with radio frequencies that stimulate collagen production using the theme to All Things Considered.
Since completing his residency in obstetrics and gynecology more than 20 years ago, Dr. James Kern has helped women maintain their inner well-being. Now, with the addition of medical aesthetics, Kern helps men and women alike showcase their outer beauty through both surgical and noninvasive procedures, from Botox to weight loss. Transformations can take place under the doctor-directed HCG diet, which deploys the HCG pregnancy hormone to speedily release unwanted fat cells in both men and women. Through the Body-Jet liposuction system, water flushes out fat to help sculpt and contour the body more effectively than a slip ‘n’ slide souped up with a pressure washer.
