Medical Spas turn back time.
When I look in the mirror these days the expression “Youth is wasted on the young.” rings in my ears. I find myself longing for the days of itty-bitty crows feet that only appeared when I smiled, an unlined forehead, and smooth dewy skin. All of those features I once took for granted.
If you're not inclined to age gracefully you are lucky to live in the land of luxury Medical Day Spas. A needle stick here, a peel there and Tada! you've turned back the clock. Medical Spas are in the business of helping us defy gravity through non-surgical treatments requiring no post-procedure downtime (a.k.a. self-imposed house arrest until the bruising and swelling of more invasive procedures disappear.)
Specialize in anti-aging procedures such as Botox, Chemical Peels, IPL Photorejuvenation, Skin Tightening, Thermage®, and Wrinkle Treatments along with many other aesthetic procedures.
Your medically based treatments all take place in a tranquil spa atmosphere. Because they use "state-of-the-art" non-surgical technologies, their aesthetic procedures can be performed quickly and comfortably with no downtime. Their staff is comprised of a board certified Cosmetic Surgeon, Amarpreet Singh, MD, FACS; a board certified Dermatologist, Mitchell J. Ross, MD, and Aesthetic Nurses, and Licensed Medical Aestheticians.
