Skin Embrace Medical Spa & Laser Center's medical director, Dr. Ladd Atkins, gleaned his aesthetic expertise from a cosmetic-surgery fellowship at Tulsa Surgical Arts and a surgical residency at the Medical Center of Independence. In his ongoing quest to transform bodies with noninvasive cosmetic treatments and surgical procedures, Dr. Atkins leads a highly trained staff that includes a licensed aesthetician, a certified laser specialist, and no robots. Relying largely on the beauty-restoring properties of laser light, Dr. Atkins's cosmic cosmeticians extend their expertise to tackle everything from unwanted hair to unwanted pounds and offer microdermabrasion and facials to freshen façades from the neck northward.
BA MedSpa & Weight Loss Center helps patients not only reach their desired weight but also maintain it. The center’s two-phase weight-loss program is aggressive, beginning with an 800-calorie diet—the potentially taxing effects of which are largely neutralized by the HCG injections that accompany it. Since a true lifestyle change is necessary to keep the weight off, the center then provides recipes and other instructions for establishing healthy habits.
There are other ways to improve your appearance at the clinic, too. Clients stop in for aesthetic services, such as wrinkle-reducing beauty injections, laser-administered facials, and hair-removal treatments. They also undergo permanent cosmetic applications, which allow them to wake up each morning with flawlessly drawn eyebrows, perfectly lined lips, and incredibly well-hidden butterfly-kissing scars.
PicMed's medical doctors and lab technicians root out the underlying causes of health concerns by conducting blood and health screenings, physicals, and vaccinations. Staff usher patients into a cheery, marigold-hued clinic, and a mobile lab drives to clients' homes or up the trunks of their tree forts. The clinic recently expanded its scope to include a menu of med-spa treatments, as well as cutting-edge treatments such as Botox and hormone-replacement therapy.
Well Spa isn't just a clever name. Here, the physician-led team, which includes a registered nurse and certified laser technician, focuses all efforts on helping clients look, feel, and be well. Their services range from laser hair-removal treatments to IPL photofacial treatments, but their specialty is hormone-replacement therapy. They approach the intricate process conservatively, ensuring that patients receive a customized treatment that will effectively balance their body's hormone levels. And as members of the American Academy of Anti-Aging, many of their treatments, such as microdermabrasion and Botox and Juvederm injections, are designed to minimize the signs of aging, helping clients look young enough to ride the merry-go-round as many times as they want.
