Plastikos originated as a cosmetic- and reconstructive surgery center, but board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Susan E. Kolb and Dr. Julian Gordon wanted to make a place for their clients to just relax. So they decided to expand their clinic with the Plastikos Medical Spa, a tranquil studio that serves up a range of spa treatments. To combat signs of aging, the TCA-based Obagi Blue chemical peel lifts away dull layers of skin and revitalizes cellular regeneration. Antioxidant-rich variants might include botanical ingredients sourced from blueberry, pomegranate, or pumpkin.
Meanwhile, expert massage therapists might use deep-tissue or reflexology techniques to excavate tension and undo stubborn knots. Alternatively, an Endermologie lipo-massage aims to disperse fatty tissue with focused kneads and rolls. The med-spa also uses advanced know-how to beautify clients with noninvasive medical treatments. The Ion Magnum, for instance, uses analog waveforms to trigger neurons that mimic physical activity, thereby building muscle and joint strength. The beauty haven also offers cold-laser LiLa body-contouring and Latisse eyelash-lengthening treatments to ready bodies for swimsuit season or a winking competition.
Water. It's perhaps the world's most powerful liquid. Without it, there would be no life. Drink too little of it, and a person starts to understand why a dry sponge looks so sad. Luckily, Hydro-Clinic's special IV fluid treatments address all manner of dehydration concerns, ranging from jet lag to fatigue to hangovers. Patients simply enter a spa-like environment and meet with a medically-certified professional, who administers a 30-minute Hydro-Life treatment. 1,000 mL quickly enter the blood stream, restoring hydration and key nutrients as clients watch TV or don complementary cold eye masks. And the treatments are customizable. Other IV options address upset stomachs, general wellness, and other concerns.
The whole shebang comes from the mind of Dr. Robert Kaufmann, who has practiced internal medicine for more than 24 years. The doctor has turned some well-hydrated heads. Hydro-Clinic has garnered ample press coverage, including a feature in Thrillist, which named their IV fluid treatments one of Atlanta's "8 Best Hangover Cures."

Under the guidance of Lipo Laser of Atlanta's medical director, technicians help clients slim down with high-end LipoLaser technology. Devices such as the Lapex BCS Pro laser and the iLipo use low-level light to break down fatty cells and the cookbooks stowed away inside of them. The nonsurgical treatment helps clients attain slimmer figures and smaller waistlines by releasing the contents of fatty cells. This release is spurred on by sessions on the facility’s vibration plate, a low-impact exercise machine that helps shake loose any residual lymphatic and fatty-cell content. On their own, vibration-plate treatments also elicit fat loss, cellulite reduction, and improved metabolism, allowing clients to shape up without breaking a sweat. Lipo Laser of Atlanta’s technicians also administer Herbalogica organic detox body wraps that further help guests reach their goal of becoming toned.
Taking a holistic approach to health, the therapists at A&A Energii work to prevent ailments before they start. They help prime bodies for optimal health by performing Swedish and deep-tissue massages and needle-free acupuncture. During yoga and meditation sessions, instructors guide clients into states of serenity previously achievable only by napping on a bed of New Age music cassettes.
In fact, A&A Energii offers many different services designed to help businesses and individuals realize their full potential. In addition to event planning and nonprofit-support services, they foster relaxation and creativity with Sip and Paint classes. Depending on the day, participants enjoy wine or mimosas and munch on hors d'oeuvres between brushstrokes. Themes range from landscapes to abstract art to renderings of the very wineglasses budding painters sip from during class.
