At The Skin Care Clinic, Dr. Michael Katopes and certified medical assistant and skincare specialist Jennifer Kodey refurbish aging, sun-damaged, and acne-ridden skin with medical-strength procedures that produce results with no recovery time. PCA, Obagi, and SkinMedica peels reduce skin pigmentation and combat acne, and crystal-tipped microdermabrasion wands resurface faces and bequeath a youthful glow. The team flips the IPL switch to eradicate hair from the limbs, face, and body, and fills in wrinkles with Juvéderm, the manmade version of antiwrinkles. For some treatments, the skin specialists lessen discomfort with Biofreeze topical anesthetic.
Serenity Med Spa's technicians execute a comprehensive menu of skincare services, outfitting their center with the latest technology and a selection of medical-grade products by Obagi and Neocutis. Beyond the waiting area's chocolate-brown leather couch and jade-hued tiles, the staff smoothes away blemishes with IPL photofacials, fractional-laser-resurfacing treatments, and microdermabrasions. Additionally, they oversee the facility's collection of tanning beds and UV-free airbrush stations, which leave clients' skin with a natural-looking bronze that, much like the lifespan of a red-giant star, may last as long as 10 days.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
