Through loyal customers and enthusiastic referrals, the skincare specialists at Essentials Laser & Med Spa refresh skin and slather on the relaxation in a soothing environment. While friends and family members relish facials and massages, technicians target sagging skin, prickly fuzz, and unwanted lumps with laser beams, Botox, and medical-grade steamrollers.
Light Tuscan stonework surrounds the entrance of Dolce Med Spa & Boutique, welcoming guests to this 5,000-square-foot oasis of pampering. Owner Tracey Lively opened this luxurious escape just last year and offers a menu of medical-spa and day-spa services for men and women alike because, as she noted in an article in the Patriot Ledger, many spas in the region weren't meeting the beautification needs of both genders. Harvard-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio and the medical aestheticians on staff tend to chemical peels and assorted laser treatments, and a troop of skin experts and body therapists slathers bodies with Glysomed professional facial products, soothing massage oils, and Cinnabon frosting.
Trained in cutting-edge fat-reduction procedures such as Smartlipo TriPlex and Vaser Liposelection, Dr. Edwin Ishoo and his staff aim to obliterate cellulite using the latest high-tech cosmetic treatments. The VelaShape II is designed to boost the metabolism of stored energy and shrink fat cells and chambers with a multipronged attack consisting of bipolar radiofrequency, infrared light energies, mechanical massage, and indisputable logic. Patients relax during the quick procedure, which can be as short as 20 minutes, while technicians heat their dermal and hypodermal tissue, then use suction skin rollers in an effort to smooth out crinkly bone covers. Results can appear as soon as the third weekly session and can last up to six months.
While many med spas have only a single doctor at the helm, Kýma Med Spa & Anti-Aging Center boasts a team of surgeons, anesthesiologists, laser technicians, and muscular therapists to ensure treatments are administered with appropriate expertise. Dr. Jack Zamora guides the med spa's medical half, overseeing a range of cosmetic procedures such as Botox and eyelid surgery. The center's massage therapists and skincare specialists, meanwhile, take a noninvasive approach to beauty, soothing and smoothing skin with eight varieties of massage, prescription-strength facials, and medical-grade pats on the back.

Dr. Christian Ford is running out of wall space. His CV boasts academic credentials aplenty—after graduating from Boston University Magnum Cum Laude, he became a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society at Boston University School of Medicine. During that time, he investigated a method for speeding recovering from wounds using vacuum-assisted devices, and his research was published in Annals of Plastic Surgery. And that was just the beginning—after graduating he completed a six-year residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the prestigious Stanford University Medical Center. But his education extends beyond the diplomas, mortarboards, and ceremonial Pink Floyd posters he earned in college. In 2008, Dr. Ford took up a position at Hospital de la Familia in Guatemala, where he performed pediatric cleft lip and palate repairs, burn surgery, and hand surgery. Since returning to the States, he's made his business in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, and operates out of a combination clinic and med spa where face, breast, and body procedures can be supplemented with Botox and dermal filler treatments.
The doctors at Oral Surgery South have all the training to back up their straightforward business name—and it's a lot of training.

In addition to helping patients with a variety of problems of the mouth, teeth, and face, they also perform aesthetic services, giving their patients youthful looks that complement their healthy smiles.
