Dr. Naila Malik is board certified in family medicine, and has over 20 years of experience. She has focused on skin care and weight management for the past 10 years and today, having been featured in such magazines as Elle and Fitness, Dr. Malik applies her diverse expertise at her own practice. She is the health and beauty advisor for the network on the Broadcast TV Show, and has been featured on Best Doctors Network and has made appearances on TV shows such as Good Morning Texas, and CBS Dallas. Her team of certified medical aestheticians performs a slew of services, from acne care for teens and adults to cosmetic dermatology procedures such as Botox injections, chemical peels, and laser hair reduction. Dr. Malik has also developed her own line of skincare products, many of which she uses during in-office treatments, to treat issues such as acne, rosacea, sensitive skin, and anti-aging.
One wasn't enough for Radiant Complexions Dermatology Clinics—its team of doctors and nurse practitioners have established 11 offices across Iowa and Arizona in the past decade. At each location, dermatology specialists preserve the health and unique character of all skin types with medical and cosmetic treatments. They can resolve all types of skin problems, and tend to strictly aesthetic concerns from the outside in with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers. Offices are equipped with advanced StarLux fractional lasers, which firm the skin by stimulating collagen production at the dermal layer, and VelaShape machines that use radio and light energies to reduce the appearance of cellulite and sagging skin. A scientifically formulated line of skincare products allow for at-home care with glycolic acid, retinol, and Vitamin C.
Though her skin- and body-care treatments may seem comparable to those found at a traditional spa, aesthetician Samantha Smith strives for clinical rather than superficial results with each service. The owner and head aesthetician at Elite Skin Solutions continually furthers her beauty know-how through ongoing education: after completing a 750-hour esthetology program in 2010, she enrolled in a nursing program so that she could offer clients the latest med-spa services. Her treatments—which include facials, chemical peels, and nonsurgical face-lifts—rely on physician-grade products and innovative technologies such as microcurrents, microskin needling, and PCA Skin products to produce optimal results with minimal downtime.
The purposes of Hidden Door Medspa’s services span from relaxation to cosmetic enhancement and improved health. Because of this, the staff includes everyone from licensed massage therapists and aestheticians to certified laser technicians and a medical aesthetician who once put lipstick on a gurney. At the day-spa end of the center, nimble hands brandish Swedish, deep-tissue, or prenatal massage techniques to diffuse bodily tension, and the med-spa area sheds the glow of lasers over unwanted hair and administers cosmetic injections. Hidden Door’s third branch, medical weight loss, operates under a 20-year nursing veteran who counsels clients on nutrition as well as options such as hormone therapy and noninvasive LipoEx cellulite treatments.
The staff at Skin and Body Studio leads an army of facials, each teeming with science-grade products, putting a stop to the chicanery of time and age. All services—from micropeels to nonsurgical face-lifts—wear glimmering livery of science-grade ingredients, such as HydroPeptide’s serums that incorporate 21 active peptides, including collagen. The staff also specializes in massages, waxing, and eyelash tinting, which disguises lashes that welsh on their horse-racing debts.
Straw-hued walls and weathered metal accents give an earthy feel to the treatment rooms that ensconce Southlake Skin Care Studio’s clients, who linger beneath a velvet throw during treatments. Nestled within the Suite Escapes Salon complex, Julie Williams deep cleanses skin with European-style facials fortified with vitamins and plant-derived serums. Peels ranging in potency and hard and soft wax arm aesthetes for procedures, and the scents of hibiscus, pumpkin, and berries drift from products, raising fond memories of growing up in a cornucopia.
