Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
Aside from pampering her clientele, Kalologie Medspa founder Tracy Brennan fills her business's shelves with a signature line of sulfate- and paraben-free products, which earned her spa a nod from Elle in 2008 as one of "the 10 best beauty boutiques for hard-to-find products." Aestheticians nourish visages with salutary facials that can include steam exfoliation or fruit enzymes. Additionally, trained med-spa technicians can refine appearances with injectables or IPL treatments, which employ a Palomar StarLux laser system as they target hyperpigmented blemishes or unsightly follicles with controlled pulses of laser light energy.
Decree Beauty's managing ob-gyn and medical aesthetician—Dr. Tamirisa and Mary Jane Wimberly, respectively—believe that improvements to health and appearance begin with an internal declaration of one's intent to better oneself. To that end, the pair offers chemical skin treatments, laser services, and the full suite of Image Skin Care products to let customers' resolve shine through their skin without the need to outfit teeth with LED lights.

Under the expert guidance of their respective doctors, the staff at each of these medical centers harness the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
The expert staff at Skin Perfect Aesthetics renovates dermal coatings with an arsenal of medical-grade products and an array of pulchritude-imparting treatments within a warmly lit, modernistic space. During half-hour express facials, aestheticians lather visages with the cleansing CosMedix serum appropriate for each client's skin type, accommodating conditions such as sensitivity or acne. CosMedix ingredients are safe and pure, helping to minimize the irritation and allergic reactions that often leave skin crabby and belligerent.
Dr. Victor Atun is a board-certified plastic surgeon who describes himself as, "devoted to rejuvenating and enhancing your natural beauty." The goal of Dr. Atun and his staff is never to create a drastically different face, body, or soul-music collection. Rather, their philosophy is based in bringing patients' own unique beauty to the surface by touching up existing features. In addition to surgeries, the spa performs laser hair removal and fosters aesthetics with facials of varying degrees of intensiveness.
After graduating with honors from medical school, Dr. Atun left his native Lima, Peru to complete for internships and residencies in Florida and Ohio. Since then, the surgeon has practiced a variety of medical disciplines in a variety of states and countries, finally opening his own cosmetic practice in 2000. Though he's settled in Sugar Land, Dr. Atun regularly returns to Peru and Ecuador on medical missions. Emulating his dedication, the whole team attends professional lectures and conferences to let their skills and knowledge grow with their field.
