During her more than 20 years in the beauty industry, Kimberly has earned certifications as a medical aesthetician instructor, laser specialist and master body artist and has performed nearly 10,000 medical procedures. Nowadays, she draws on her eclectic credentials at the helm of her eponymous laser center. With beams from FDA-approved Candela and Syneron laser systems, she and her staff, including Dr. Jack Cheng, can remove unwanted stubble, tighten wrinkled skin, and rejuvenate faces aged by the knowledge that the tooth fairy is actually a boozy out-of-work actor. Her permanent-makeup services streamline morning beauty routines, and her patients’ crow’s-feet and laugh lines temporarily disappear after injections of Botox, Restylane, and other cosmetic fillers. Kimberly’s team also performs spray tans and eyelash extensions.
Over seven appointments, licensed dentists Dr. Terry J. Lemons and Dr. James D. Anderson, Jr. repair and mask damaged teeth or vacant gums with customized implants and porcelain crowns. Clients meet for a consultation with Dr. Lemons to discuss medical history and the space-time continuum and to take impressions for the custom-fit implant, before visiting Dr. Anderson to introduce him to the surgery site. Dr. Anderson places the implant into locally anesthetized gums, filling a gap caused by a damaged or missing tooth root. Dental bones grow around the implant in the next 4–6 months, allowing Dr. Anderson to uncover the implant, top it with a healing cap, and tell it tales of the first dentists, who courageously took on T. rexes as patients.
Slender Life's slimming wraps nonsurgically detoxify, tighten, and tone bodies with each one-hour session. During treatment, a body-wrap technician sequesters bulge using contouring bandages soaked in warm, hypoallergenic mineral solutions. In compressing fat tissues stored between muscles, toxins gradually flee, which may result in trimmer hips, waistlines, and bio-topiaries. Demummified bodies may lose 6–20 inches and beam with reduced cellulite and stretch marks, all while flaunting suppler skin worthy of its own hieroglyphic.
The atmosphere at Bluefern Spa is all about the details. In the salt room, for instance, the crystalline white walls are interspersed with mosaics in soothing earth tones, ensuring clients' eyes are entertained while their lungs take in healthful minerals. The sauna beckons with wood benches and polished stone, while private treatment rooms put an emphasis on relaxation with rich fabrics and low lighting. Thoughtful touches extend to the treatments as well—facials include light massage, while body scrubs are augmented with enticing aromas. And, ensuring that interiors are pampered as much as exteriors, the spa serves guests complimentary coffee and tea, and invites them to order in refreshments from local restaurants or moms.
Inside Lavender Med Spa's warmly lit suite, ornaments, paintings, and decorative mirrors festoon the walls. Besides looking nice, the mirrors actually serve a purpose: to show patrons their newly younger-looking selves staring back. The med spa works alongside one of Atlanta's top plastic surgeons, Dr. Morgan Davoudi, and specializes in anti-aging treatments, from brightening facials and medical-grade Revitalize peels to Botox injections and noninvasive ReFirme skin-tightening sessions. Similarly noninvasive are the spa's YAG, Alexandrite, and Diode lasers, which can remove unwanted hair from any type of skin as long as it's not made of mirrors.
