Medical director Dr. Peter Ulbrich applies his extensive knowledge of beauty-related medicine as he masterfully captains the aesthetically driven staff at Georgia Aesthetic Med Spa. The team of specialists and technicians follow through on their mission to achieve lasting, beauty-boosting results with a menu of clinical facials, injectables, and laser treatments, all of which send wrinkles, acne, and body hair into retreat. Their services also include holistic therapies such as massages that ease the pains of a long work week as a human wrecking ball.
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.
Plastikos originated as a cosmetic- and reconstructive surgery center, but board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Susan E. Kolb and Dr. Julian Gordon wanted to make a place for their clients to just relax. So they decided to expand their clinic with the Plastikos Medical Spa, a tranquil studio that serves up a range of spa treatments. To combat signs of aging, the TCA-based Obagi Blue chemical peel lifts away dull layers of skin and revitalizes cellular regeneration. Antioxidant-rich variants might include botanical ingredients sourced from blueberry, pomegranate, or pumpkin.
Meanwhile, expert massage therapists might use deep-tissue or reflexology techniques to excavate tension and undo stubborn knots. Alternatively, an Endermologie lipo-massage aims to disperse fatty tissue with focused kneads and rolls. The med-spa also uses advanced know-how to beautify clients with noninvasive medical treatments. The Ion Magnum, for instance, uses analog waveforms to trigger neurons that mimic physical activity, thereby building muscle and joint strength. The beauty haven also offers cold-laser LiLa body-contouring and Latisse eyelash-lengthening treatments to ready bodies for swimsuit season or a winking competition.
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.
Blue is everywhere here, from the cerulean-, azure-, and aquamarine-stained windows to the very name of Blue MedSpa. Dr. Landon McLain, medical director of the beauty haven inside the Westin hotel at Bridge Street Town Centre, helms a team of registered nurses, aestheticians, and physicians who focus on restoring youthful appearances. They use advanced equipment such as SmartLipo to reduce the appearance of cellulite, IPL laser machines for photofacials, and six types of dermal fillers to send fine lines scurrying beneath floorboards. Blue also provides traditional salon and spa services with Pureology and Redken products, as well as skincare products from iS Clinical and its own signature line. Regardless of the service, each med-spa staffer takes a holistic approach to treating clients to ensure their beauty goals are accomplished.
