At SkinMD, Dr. Tracie D. Swayden, M.D. and her licensed aestheticians team up to help patients achieve healthy, youthful-looking skin and improve their exteriors with treatments ranging from wrinkle-fighting Botox and Dysport injections to Zerona body-contouring procedures. The clinic’s technicians employ advanced technology, such as a Soprano XL laser for hair removal and sclerosing solutions for treating unsightly leg veins that prevent humans from living among cyborgs and masquerading as one of their own. Patrons plagued by skin discoloration, wrinkles, and blemishes can try Laser360 treatments, photorejuvenation, and Pixel Perfect resurfacing. Besides enhancing appearances with cellulite- and age-fighting procedures, SkinMD can also bronze newly toned bodies with airbrush tans and remove tattoos of Michael Dukakis to make room for an inking of a new presidential candidate.
For ten years the Center for Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology has provided comprehensive general, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology in offices around the DFW area, including ones located in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Weatherford.
Dr. Ellen Turner and her staff of aestheticians, physician's assistants, and medical assistants are passionate about what they do. In a mini-documentary about their practice, they all chime in about unearthing their clients' inner beauty and enhancing their self-confidence. Through their treatments, which range from facials to treatments for acne and rosacea, they focus on making a difference in their patients' lives. A lot of times this means bringing about change that makes patients happy to look in mirrors and unwilling to hide their faces beneath brown paper bags.
Dr. Ramin Samadi, who has been awarded the prestigious Fellow status from the American College of Emergency Medicine and the American College of Physicians, began his career as an emergency-medicine specialist in 1988 in Buffalo, New York. In just two short years, he was promoted to the position of medical director in the department, and a few years after that he became the chairman of the department of emergency medicine for Mercy Health System. He is also an expert in anti-aging skincare, and after moving to Fort Worth, he decided to open Artisan MedSpa in order to provide patients medical-grade spa services in a relaxing environment completely different than the cold, sterile, alligator-friendly hospital setting he was used to.
Patients at the spa can don plush robes and slippers in the locker room before heading to the relaxation room to unwind while sipping complimentary beverages and savoring sweet fruit. The full-service med spa further pampers patrons with various massages, body scrubs, and luxurious 23-karat-gold facials. For those interested in medical-grade services, the spa proffers hair removal, skin resurfacing, and body sculpting.
Z Spa will go to many noninvasive ends to improve the bodies of its clients. The spa uses the FDA-approved cold-laser Zerona treatment to remove excess fat without surgery, liquefying adipose that can then be flushed out of the body naturally. Other treatments include Norvell spray tanning, laser hair removal, and skin tightening through infrared heat.
David A. Grant brings almost 40 years of plastic-surgery experience to his position as medical director of La Forme Chic, overseeing noninvasive treatments to refurbish faces and frames. Under his watch, a small staff of licensed, certified technicians performs more than a dozen services such as clearing skin with clinical facials, plumping lips with dermal fillers, and etching in backup sets of eyebrows with permanent makeup. The tech-savvy staff also harnesses laser technology to expedite hair removal and contour physiques, and La Forme Chic protects clients’ skin with product lines from Colorescience and Theraderm.
