At Bella Body Design, slimming down clients' silhouettes takes teamwork. The clinic specializes in body-contouring treatments that combine radio, monopolar, bipolar, and tripolar frequency waves—a six-stage sytem that reduces fat and cellulite while contouring to the shape of the body more efficiently than either method alone, and is the only Austin-area clinic to use this system. As the radio-frequency waves heat the fat cells beneath the skin, ultrasonic waves rupture and break them up, followed by the vacuum to push the breakage into the lymphatic system. From there the body metabolizes the cells naturally, which leaves skin smoother on areas such as the stomach, thighs, and arms. The treatment also works on the face and chin, where it fades wrinkles and lifts sagging skin without clients having to resort to strips of duct tape attached to helium balloons. Each session is gentle, noninvasive, and, unlike surgeries with similar effects, requires no downtime.
Med-Physique is built on a foundation of experience: specifically, the teams more than two decades of experience in the beauty industry. Inside a clean, modern facility, they help clients achieve beauty through technology. A Lipo-laser tightens skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite in non-invasive sessions. Meanwhile, high-tech treatments such as IPL photo-facials, chemical peels, and sclerotherapy vein treatments performed by a registered nurse help to alleviate skin conditions by revealing a new, completely different face underneath the client's old one.
Dr. Lawrence Broder of Beleza MedSpa began his 20-year career in surgery and primary care, but has shifted his dedication to medical aesthetics, helping people reshape their bodies and evade signs of aging. He continues to build on his surgical knowledge with coursework and bihourly games of Operation, and has slimmed more than 2,000 physiques with laser-driven SmartLipo and smoothed hundreds of complexions with DOT (dermal optical thermolysis) resurfacing treatments. Dr. Broder supervises each of Beleza's locations, ensuring that every confidence-boosting injection, augmentation, lift, and peel is done with expertise and professionalism.
Altering someone's appearance requires an intuitive, artistic understanding of the human figure as well as an extensive amount of medical training. At Personique, Drs. Robert Ersek, Randy Buckspan, and James Sheridan—board-certified plastic surgeons who have collectively treated more than 50,000 patients—embrace both aspects of their chosen calling. Their procedures combine equal parts art and science as they use advanced surgical techniques to contour waistlines, reshape features, reconstruct damaged areas, and help give patients the new look that they desire. As opposed to other medical centers, Personique exclusively uses local anesthesia with intravenous sedation, which provides a more comfortable experience without the potential complications of general anesthesia.
Personique's staff of medical professionals, technicians, and aestheticians also offer nonsurgical alternatives that still strive to create more dramatic results than typical spa treatments. These procedures incorporate cutting-edge technologies as well as clinical-strength skincare products, such as those by Vivitè and Epionce. Cosmetic laser systems help remove unwanted stubble or improve skin tone, IPL technology can minimize the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation, and noninvasive liposuction alternatives help patients banish stubborn areas of fatty tissues. Additionally, the staff members perform a variety of specialized chemical peels that can accomplish a range of goals, from unclogging pores and treating acne breakouts to leaving the skin looking as youthfully radiant as a car's first pair of turn signals.
Five Things to Know About Aesthetica Med Spa
As a board-certified physician specializing in cosmetic dermatology, Dr. David Sneed spends his days helping patients match their inner confidence with the outward appearance. His staff at Aesthetica Med Spa shares this mission, and helps Dr. Sneed deliver treatments ranging from photofacials and Botox injections to liposuction and sclerotherapy. Read on to learn more about the med spa’s approach to aesthetic enhancements:
Their procedures keep things minimally invasive. Silhouette Threadlift, for example, lifts the face and neck with substantially less work than a traditional face or brow lift. Similarly, water-assisted Body-Jet Liposuction produces much less trauma and bruising than traditional liposuction.
Their injectables go way past Botox. There are eight total options, ranging from Botox and Restylane—brands for which Aesthetica holds Diamond injector status—to Juvederm and Dysport.
They've harnessed the power of laser and light. Radio-frequency technology, intense-pulsed light (IPL), and more do everything from tighten skin to lighten age spots.
They perform classic spa treatments, too. The team's medical facials address issues unique to each patient, as do three types of peels .
Their office feels more spa than doctor’s office. With light colors, carefully curated artwork, and clean lines, the studio exudes a light, airy feel that helps clients relax.
