The friendly staff at Bella Luz aims to exponentially increase the confidence of its clientele via beautifying services administered in a lush spa environment.

Atlanta Wellness and Weight Loss’s team of doctors watches over patients as they slim down, ensuring safe transformations during weight loss. Their plans focus on nutrition rather than intensive exercise; shots of B12 and all-natural Vital Nutrients supplements enhance overall health, and a custom nutrition plan saves patients the hassle of interrogating frozen dinners. Their wellness services extend beyond weight loss, encompassing chiropractic adjustments and other physical therapy.
The trained laser therapists at Cosmedical Spa & Salon Anti-Aging Laser Center employ the Candela GentleYAG laser in an effort to grant each face a firmer, more youthful appearance. Delivered in quick pulses, the laser's infrared energy penetrates deep into skin to help to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production, ousting acne-causing bacteria and impurities while maintaining client comfort. Light to medium toned skin types on the Fitzpatrick scale of 1–4 can benefit from the procedure, helping lead to smoother, more even-toned complexions. The treatment requires little to no downtime.
Dr. Joseph Galitzin works toward one goal: turning back the clock. He’s not a particularly inept watch repairman, however— he’s the accomplished medical director of Skin Care At 5th Ave. Here, he oversees a staff of aestheticians and clinicians to help him defy the cosmetic effects of aging. The first step to achieving this lofty goal is holding a preliminary consultation with each new client, which Dr. Galitzin prefers to helm personally whenever possible. During these consultations, the staff typically employs Beau Visage skin-analyzing technology to take a look beneath the surface of the skin—2 millimeters beneath the surface to be exact. This gives them a clearer look at how blood flow, melanin levels, and sun damage may be contributing to any skincare conditions.
With this evaluation in mind, Dr. Galitzin and his staff will recommend a treatment regimen that emphasizes nonsurgical procedures and confidence-boosting high fives. Diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels can improve skin tone and texture by deeply and powerfully exfoliating the topmost layers. IPL technology can help by erasing stubble, fading sunspots and signs of hyperpigmentation, or even stimulating collagen production beneath the surface. To add even more structure to jawlines and cheekbones, the staff also offers injectable dermal fillers, which can help conceal the appearance of anything from wrinkles to depressed acne scars.
Unlike some salon owners, Spencer Malay isn't content to just sit back and watch as his stylists have all the fun. The 15-year hairstyling veteran, beauty consultant, and makeup artist grabs the scissors and works alongside them, doling out the salon's signature razor cuts and conditioning therapies and offering hairstyling advice dubbed "perfect" by a reviewer for the July 2011 issue of Allure magazine. On the spa side of the studio, massages and facials provide a welcome dose of relaxation for busy clientele, and med-spa treatments erase years from the face and body with dermal fillers and spider-vein treatments performed under the supervision of a doctor, nurse, and the occasional haunted painting.
Patrons looking to bring a touch of the salon's glamour home with them can peruse a collection of Spencer Malay jewelry or add a pop of color to everyday makeup routines courtesy of Spencer's own line of mineral-based cosmetics. The salon also specializes in providing and fitting wigs for patients with medical hair loss and curates a large and stylish collection, with options recommended by medical and beauty professionals as well as past clients.
For more than 40 years, the doctors and staff at Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery have worked to beautify clients inside and out with cosmetic plastic-surgery procedures. The center's three board-certified plastic surgeons don't just fulfill the required minimum to form a surgeon folk-rock band—they also furnish the diverse specialties necessary to lavish their patients with services ranging from facelifts and rhinoplasty to liposuction, tummy tucks, and breast augmentation. Meanwhile, an in-house anti-aging physician treats hormone imbalances and coaches guests on losing pounds through the hCG diet. The team also bolsters patients' appearances with nonsurgical procedures including facial injectables, laser hair and tattoo removal, and microdermabrasion treatments that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores stretched by spelunking freckles.
The interior of Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery conjures a sense of serenity with its rich wood floors complemented by walls in quiet earth tones such as forest, sand, and ozone layer. Contemporary artwork hangs over unimposing furniture in the waiting room, and a more formal reception space beckons visitors with pastoral art and an oriental area rug.
