Aesthetic procedures benefit from cutting-edge medical expertise at Revitalize MD MedSpa and Laser Center. As the center's medical directors, Drs. Tiffany Hall and Amina Husain rely on their extensive experience in fields ranging from obstetrics to reconstructive surgery. However, they also offer nonsurgical methodologies as they help clients obtain their desired complexion or body shape. They accomplish this by enlisting the aid of modern advancements in aesthetic technology and skincare products.
Using the Candela GentleYAG and Alexandrite cosmetic-laser systems, technicians can improve skin tone by zapping unsightly stubble or sealing noticeable spider veins. The low-power YOLO Curve laser contours the body by shrinking stubborn fat deposits, and VelaShape technology accomplishes a similar goal by bombarding adipose tissues with a combination of bipolar radio frequencies and infrared-light energy. While permanent makeup procedures can create timeless, natural-looking eyebrows or eyeliner, the med spa can also use a Q-switched laser system to remove tattoos.
Beyond medically assisted therapies, Revitalize MD MedSpa and Laser Center also pampers visitors with an array of more traditional spa treatments. Alternatively, aestheticians can restore skin by performing facials with clinical-strength products by companies such as Obagi.

Drawing on 15 years of massage experience, Piña administers tension-reducing Swedish massages as well as sports massages designed to soothe muscles strained while exercising or benchwarming.

As she renders these services, Kia always has fun on the job—much like an oil tycoon who has a comedian turn all his subordinates' reports into hilarious monologues.
It isn't every day that a licensed massage therapist gets to work during a rock concert. Jasmine McKenzie had just that opportunity when she gave much-needed kneads to performing artists and crew members at the Rock on the Range music festival. She's also accustomed to the refined ambiance at the Scioto Country Club, where she previously practiced techniques ranging from deep-tissue and hot-stone massage to neuromuscular therapy and pregnancy massage.
Between her experience and education?a bachelor's degree in health and wellness and training at the Cleveland Institute of Medical Massage?Jasmine's talents have brought her many unique client experiences. Now at her own practice, she continues to wield her massage talents against ailments such as back pain and injuries caused by athletic exertion or fist bumps that have gone horribly wrong.
The therapists at Touch Therapy use the restorative powers of massage to help their clients relax, release tension, and alleviate depression.

Their specialty services also include a lavish chocolate massage, which includes chocolate-scented massage oil and chocolate aromatherapy scents designed to trigger fond childhood memories of getting up early and milking the chocolate cow.
