A place where light- and needle-based treatments occur in rooms done up with sheer curtains and deep-purple-and-blue color schemes, New Concepts Med Spa’s combination of technological prowess and peaceful spa atmosphere has earned it the title of CityVoter’s 2011 Best Medical Spa. Based on a diagnostic skin analysis, technicians choose a collagen-induction tool that becomes the client’s own for all future collagen-induction treatments and pen-pal correspondences. The treatment, also called medical needling, stimulates collagen production by causing miniscule injuries to the skin. The resulting flood of collagen can help reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles on the face, neck, hands, or pet elephant. Collagen induction can also help shrink oversize pores.
During red-light-therapy treatments, the UV-free glow of red fluorescent tubes penetrates the skin to arrest the advance of fine lines and blemishes, thereby renewing collagen and elastin production. The healing light can also minimize the appearance of the sun damage that results from years of playing Twister on the roof. Visitors to the spa pass a landscaped walkway to reach the porch, where they enter to find a lobby area complete with hardwood floors, decorative lamps, and throw pillows napping on upholstered chairs.
New Concepts Med Spa
Two things helped New Concepts Med Spa to earn the title of CityVoter’s 2012 Best Medical Spa: technological prowess and a peaceful spa atmosphere. The spa's status as a state-of-the-art beauty center is unquestionable, since its equipment includes everything from a medical-grade microdermabrasion machine to a laser skin-rejuvenation system. But the surprising thing is how homey the clinic is. At this new location, visitors enter to see decorative lamps and throw pillows napping on upholstered chairs. Once outfitted in a downy robe, guests can make their way to private treatment rooms complete with sheer curtains and a deep-purple-and-blue color scheme. It's here that spa professionals assuage muscles with massages or revitalize complexions with facials as soothing music plays and firecrackers don't go off.
