Janet Vercelli, Dallas Laser Solutions? resident expert, renders skin smooth, radiant, and more youthful by drawing upon the latest technology. Her skincare services combat uneven tone and fine lines by showering complexions with pulses of light. Laser hair-removal treatments employ specific wavelengths that heat up the melanin in follicles, leaving roots unable to grow and readying skin for head-to-toe temporary tattoos.
Not long after Dr. Kathryn Wood became a board-certified Ob/Gyn specialist in 1990, she began to gravitate toward medical aesthetics. Dr. Wood gathered a team of registered nurses, licensed medical aestheticians, and laser technicians to found Dermalase in 2000.
Today, the team firms up skin with Botox and Juvederm treatments. It also spot-treats fat with body-contouring sessions and resurfaces faces with Fraxel treatments, two services that tend to engender the most gratitude from clients. Most often, medical aestheticians find themselves performing tattoo removals. But for all the lasers and medical technology in the office, one of the medical aestheticians reports that the humble chemical peel is her favorite service to perform "because you get the fastest results for great looking skin!"

Nancy Gargiulo has been a licensed aesthetician for more than 16 years. During that time, she worked in numerous upscale spas and even operated her own full-service day spa in South Carolina. After moving to Texas, she decided that she wanted to continue running her own business, so she founded Clear Beauty Skincare and Acne Clinic. As a certified acne specialist, Nancy specializes in helping clients clear their skin of unsightly blemishes, although she has also dedicated her career to mastering microdermabrasion procedures, chemical peels, ultrasonic and microcurrent treatments, dermaplaning, and many other anti-aging spa services. Every service begins with an in-depth consultation that determines which treatments can help clients best attain their personalized skincare goals.
Most services at Frisco Laser Clinic are powered by light. At its space within Frisco Family Healthcare, the clinic's certified and licensed laser techs wield their light-beaming handpieces and laser diodes to diminish unwanted hair by damaging follicles and halting their growth. During photofacials, intense pulsed light works to smooth and tone the complexion, targeting signs of aging like a bouncer at a 12-and-under club. Alternatively, acne treatments ease the blemishes of youth with the same pulses of light, which also help to kill bacteria.
At Texas Laser Clinic, the staff helps patients refine their skin surfaces with a slew of laser and facial treatments. Armed with the Candela GentleYAG laser, staff members harness energy beams to help uproot body hair and tighten skin. Alternatively, they help freshen complexions during facials that employ various products, such as multivitamin masks procured from the totem poles of ancient Flintstones tribes. The facility's selection of glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloro acetic acids aid chemical peels, and its NovaLash eyelash extensions latch onto lids hair by hair and, like a sample-sized calendar, can last up to two months.
Under the careful supervision of Dr. Quan Nguyen, BioDerm Skin Care & 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. 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.
