Visitors opting for MDS Medical Spa and Laser Center’s RN-administered laser-hair-removal options receive three or six skin-smoothing treatments. Pulsing lasers slip painlessly beneath clients’ skin to dispatch unwanted hairs as well as the tiny subdermal farmers that grow them, rendering immediately visible results. Smoothness seekers can undergo six treatments on two areas including the upper lip, side burns, hands, feet, brows, stomach line, areola, and ears or sleek up a larger area, such as underarms, upper arms, lower arms, bikini lines, brazilian bikini, front of the neck, back of the neck, or buttocks. Even larger areas can be tackled in three sessions, rendering a male chest and abdomen, or half-leg (including the knees) less hirsute. Depending on the size of the skin-space and the length of the laser’s pretreatment Pink Floyd show, follicle-fighting sessions can last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.
MDS Medical Spa & Laser Center
Dr. Goldring at MDS Medical Spa & Laser Center aims to restore youthful vigor to veneers with medical injections, including Botox, Juvéderm, and Restylane treatments, as well as medical peels and IPL photofacials. The photofacials stimulate visages with laser light energy and aim to banish such pigmented blemishes as acne scars, sun damage, and rosacea. Treatments can take 30–45 minutes, with each laser pulse creating the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin while a sci-fi foley artist provides sound effects.
During each Botox session, targeted areas receive an injection of purified protein, which relaxes muscles and smoothes skin that has become furrowed from age or frequent super-soaker duels. Alternatively, Restylane injections achieve similar results with a hyaluronic-acid elixir, and Juvéderm injections fill wrinkled areas around the mouth and nose.
Prior to treatment, patients meander past lush outdoor greenery as they pass through the spa's thick wooden doors and into the waiting room, where a sleek reception desk and supple leather chairs keep waiting patrons comfortable. On the walls, bottled body serums add splashes of color to brushed-metal shelves as gleaming frames display feature articles about the spa and lovelorn dating columns written by recently abandoned wrinkles.
