At her eponymous medical laser spa—which has attracted media attention from Great Day SA and KABB Fox 29’s Daytime @ 9—Dr. Elizabeth McRae draws on 20 years of experience to enhance exteriors with noninvasive procedures. Starting with the face, she and her team of nurses rejuvenate complexions with treatments ranging in intensity from a classic European facial to intense-pulsed-light therapy. Visages that have begun to sag or accrue wrinkles from years of staring at a Rubik’s cube are smoothed with Botox or dermal fillers such as Juvéderm. Clients maintain their looks at home with beauty products from brands such as Obagi and SkinCeuticals.
In addition to pampering faces, Dr. McRae caters to entire bodies with Zerona laser body-slimming treatments and laser hair removal. She also uses minimally invasive ultrasonic liposuction to suction out liquefied fat and stockpiled cotton candy.
Under the watchful eye of medical director Dr. Annika Crosby, the trained staff of PSS MedSpa come to the aid of clients with ailing complexions, aging skin, and unwanted hair or varicose veins with a combination of laser and aesthetic treatments. The team draws upon an arsenal of lasers that can be finely tuned to gently treat the delicate lines surrounding eyes or powerful rays that stop hair production in the follicles. The spa also utilizes high-quality products from brands such as SkinCeuticals, Eminence, and Colorescience Pro, blending the latest skin science with all-natural ingredients to keep skin soft, complexions clear, and signs of aging at bay. The staff can also outfit newly refined faces with a selection of retail mineral makeup and waxing treatments that create skin as flawless as the skin skeletons dream about.

The salon’s technicians also specialize in nonnail treatments, melting away tension with hot-stone massages, coaxing out impurities with mud facials, or boosting wink effectiveness with eyelash extensions.
