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.
During medical school, Dr. Jason Riehs was primarily focused on internal medicine and pediatrics. But during his residency, he became fascinated with the success that doctors were seeing with using lasers to treat severe acne. Dr. Riehs was inspired to help his own patients achieve a fresher, more youthful appearance through laser treatments and other skincare technology. So he opened Le Beau Visage Medical Spa, which focuses entirely on noninvasive cosmetic treatments.
Dr. Riehs and his staff of medical aestheticians perform everything from acne-fighting Fraxel laser treatments to spider-vein-fading sclerotherapy treatments to hair-removing laser treatments. Dr. Riehs is particularly adept at smoothing wrinkles and plumping up skin with dermal fillers?he's currently an advanced injectables trainer who teaches others physicians and nurses how to properly inject Restylane and Perlane.
Jump Jive & Wail Salon owner Diane Bevan has carefully assembled a team of highly trained beauty experts, including a graduate of the Paul Mitchell Academy and certified specialists in Global Keratin's taming system and non-damaging Klix hair extensions. The salon focuses solely on hair and waxing services, excelling in custom color and always going the extra mile to make guests' visits pleasant ones. Its cheery, pink-topped styling chairs make the perfect resting place for customers to enjoy complimentary wine or beer, and stylists take great pride in getting to know each client by their first name and its Klingon equivalent. The positive, customer-service-oriented vibe earned the salon recognition in D Magazine, which named it a top salon in both 2008 and 2009.
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.
Weight-loss programs are more than prescriptions and restrictions at Oceanview Med Spa. Instead, Dr. Kenneth Deeb and nurse practitioner Colleen Deeb empower their patients with education, teaching them to apply their personal strengths to fact-based weight-loss regimens. The staff does provide invaluable assistance throughout the four-stage programs, though, and they help patients feel lighter by introducing them to detox strategies, giving dietary guidance, and administering helium injections.
The center's aesthetic treatments adopt a similarly scientific approach to generating dramatic cosmetic changes. Microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels target blemishes and uneven skin tone, and the med spa's cosmetic laser system and broadband light-based technology noninvasively effect change further beneath the surface.
At locations in Frisco and Farmers Branch, the Injection Artistry team uses Botox and Juv?derm to help clients achieve the looks they want. Many are familiar with these products' ability to smooth crows' feet and forehead lines, but the clinical artists of this med spa also use it for some unexpected ends: neck lifts, nose contouring, and even the erasure of acne scars. Along with chemical peels, these customized Botox and Juv?derm treatments refresh facades and help clients feel more like themselves than just wearing a jumpsuit with a giant picture of their face on it.
