Dr. Dawn Batiz Blagg and the Loraine Shinks Rejuvenate Spa team of aestheticians believe that people are their most beautiful when they feel relaxed and pampered. To that end, they create a soothing spa atmosphere where they offer microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and massages as well as deep-cleansing facials and Botox injections. Alternately, spa-goers can relax during a luxurious face, hand, and foot massage before getting a Brazilian bikini wax and a natural-looking spray tan, or get a seaweed wrap to help reduce the look of cellulite, while reminding clients of their summer vacations to the shore.
A quick glance at Alexandra Bradley's curriculum vitae reveals an unstoppable passion for skincare: she has a master's degree in physical therapy with a specialty in medical aesthetics; she graduated with honors from the Ogle School; and she is certified by the state of Texas. In addition, as a native Brazilian, she transformed appearances by running a beauty center in her hometown of Belo Horizonte. Backed by her education and a cumulative 18 years of working with plastic surgeons and dermatologists in Brazil and the United States, Bradley clarifies and rejuvenates skin through a collection of skin therapies using pharmaceutical-grade and environmentally friendly products. With an advanced hyfrecator cauterization device, she successfully dispels veins and skin growths including skin tags, sun spots, moles, and ghost tails. She also uses advanced technologies during a collection of peels, which can deploy lasers to resurface the skin.
Although it's hard to tell by looking at Fabulous Esthetics owner Amanda Walthall's healthy complexion, she's had ample opportunities to put various skincare products to the test while treating her own epidermal concerns. This first-hand familiarity, paired with seven years spent working for medical spas throughout the Midwest, makes her a trustworthy skincare specialist—well versed in chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion practices. Fabulous Esthetics specializes in treating acne-prone or aging skin with the most effective products and services available, favoring ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acid and vitamin C squeezed from oranges by supermodels. Microdermabrasion treatments whisk away weathered skin cells, waxing services uproot hairs to leave skin smooth, and paraben-free airbrush tanning gilds bodies for up to 14 days.
At Rodgers Dermatology, board-certified dermatologist Timothy Rodgers combines the informed atmosphere of a doctor's office with the serene ambiance of a spa. He remedies medical and cosmetic ailments for guests of all ages, wielding lasers, microdermabrasion tools, and dermal fillers such as Botox, Juvéderm, and Sculptra.
In addition to fading blemishes and erasing drawn-on wrinkles, Dr. Rodgers identifies and treats skin, hair, and nail conditions such as eczema and spider veins. He and his staff emphasize the importance of thorough consultations and patient education—their website has compiled skincare resources that cover topics from rashes to acne.
Dr. Calderon, owner of Elite MedSpa, takes a forward-thinking approach to laser skincare technology. First impelled to pick up a laser more than a decade ago when a member of her family was diagnosed with melanoma, Dr. Calderon has sought to spread awareness of cancer prevention through laser technologies, as well as the cosmetic benefits of lasers on sun-damaged and aging skin. Dr. Calderon and her team enact more than 25 beautifying services, including laser-centric tattoo and hair removal, as well as Cool Lipo, which uses minimally invasive lasers to dissolve body fat and tighten skin. The med spa also treats acne-prone skin with FDA-approved lasers and prescriptions, and offers dozens of beauty products from its online store.
Under the careful supervision of Dr. Quan Nguyen, BioDerm Skin Care and Laser Center's licensed medical professionals perform a slew of noninvasive cosmetic services. Using IPL laser energy, they eliminate patient's unwanted hair, spider veins, and tattoos, or help them diminish the urge to smoke by directing laser beams at trigger areas, such as ears, faces, hands, or kitten tattoos. Though specializing in laser therapy, they extend their aesthetic reach into the anti-aging cookie jar, performing microdermabrasions and Botox and Restylane injections, along with proffering an array of skincare products, including BioDerm and Obagi.
