Donna Lapetina, owner and head aesthetician at Skin Solutions Medical Spa, has spent the last decade caring for aging skin—including her own. Donna and her team work their age-defying magic under the direction of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Boyle, whose career includes time as a flight surgeon, a lieutenant commander in the military, and a volunteer speaker on skin cancer. The staff’s specialty services include microdermabrasion, peels, and facials, as well as intensive acne treatments. Dr. Boyle performs all Botox and dermal-filler procedures herself to safely keep crow’s-feet, frown lines, and worry lines at bay. Clients receive their treatments in private, earth-toned rooms that mix the serenity of a spa with the professionalism of a medical office.
Rather than buying leftover potions from local sorcerers, Skin Solutions Medical Spa has developed its own line of products, including cleansers, eye creams, and an exfoliating scrub. The gentle solutions are formulated with ingredients such as green-tea extract, oil of calendula, and cranberry extract.

Helmed by owner Shannon A. Wolfgang, the staff of injection specialists at A Hair Never There smoothes skin, removes unwanted follicles, and banishes cellulite with FDA-approved techniques and services. Botox injections remove facial folds and wrinkles for months at a time, and VelaShape treatments can undo cellulite without invasive surgery or dangerous, human-size panini presses. The med spa's technicians draw from extensive certification and medical experience as they beautify both men and women, reducing future hair growth with lasers and electrolysis and helping restore youthful glows to skin with light therapy and chemical peels.
Dr. Melinda O'Rourke leads Northwest Laser Skincare's friendly, professional staff in a wide range of cosmetic dermatology and ophthalmology services. The four-part treatment combines a deep-exfoliating microdermabrasion treatment with a light chemical peel and a hydrating vitamin-C mask. A thorough skin analysis and consultation kicks off the one-hour mug makeover, followed by a three-pass microdermabrasion, which transports deceased skin cells from the face to the epidermal afterlife. Depending on a face's skincare needs you'll receive either an acne-focused chemical peel to banish budding blemishes or a sun-damage-fighting chemical peel to reverse the skin-weathering effects of the miniature solar flares in basement laboratories. The service culminates with the application of a calming vitamin-C mask to pacify the countenance and smooth the surface of the mind.
Certified laser specialist Pamela Archer is a staunch believer in the manifold power of lasers, employing their beams to rid bodies of hair, spider veins, wrinkles, and fungus at BARELaser clinic. Her arsenal of Quanta lasers covers a wide range of wavelengths to address the needs of patients of all skin types and ham-radio-station preferences. The center's team of registered nurses conquers issues unreachable by lasers through skin-smoothing injections of Botox or dermal fillers.
Dr. Jonathan W. Singer sees his career as a practice in treating not only the symptoms but also the causes of ailments. At The Natural Place, he oversees a staff of registered nurses, laser technicians, and licensed and certified paramedical aestheticians who subscribe to the same philosophy. Through their services, which include vibration therapy, the team can help to alleviate some of the symptoms associated with Parkinson's Disease, MS, and orthopedic problems. The clinic's aesthetic treatments, such as Botox, oxygen facials, and laser hair removal, help to boost confidence, and weight-management plans aim to produce healthy results in patients. Dr. Singer and his staff also perform Body Bronze sunless spray tans and intense pulsed light therapy (IPL), which can be used to diminish the appearance of spider and varicose veins as well the need to go to the disco.
