A Medical Spa at Rizzieri’s mother-daughter-son doctor team gives us the deets on which procedures are the must-try and why.
Easy-breezy—beautiful. A Medical Spa combines the relaxing elements of a spa with the expertise and technology of a physician’s office. “We are your ultimate source for the most recognized and effective anti-aging and corrective skincare products and procedures available,” says Dr. Demetri Karanzalis. The caring staff led by board-certified mother-daughter-son medical team: Dr. Donna Wilcox, Dr. Kristina Siliunas and Dr. Demetri Karanzalis use a unique combination of cutting-edge technology, individualized skincare programs and focused client education to be at the forefront of today’s medscape. “We celebrate differences and approach everyone as unique individuals,” says Wilcox. “We believe in the power of human interaction and relationship-building, and strive to provide sensitive, comprehensive and advanced aesthetic skincare treatments. This innovative and customized approach allows us to enhance your beauty and quality of life.” Case in point? Their motto: “Treat everyone like family.” Here, mother, daughter and son give us the scoop on what procedures best preserve and restore that natural youthful look.
COLLAGEN STIMULATION, MEET SCULPTRA: Designed to correct such skin depressions as creases, wrinkles, folds, hollow undereye areas and facial fat loss, Sculptra is a total gamechanger in the collagen replacement market. An injectable that stimulates your body’s collagen production, “Sculptra is different from a filler in that it stimulates your own cells using a molecule called PLLA,” says Karanzalis. “Multiple treatments could be needed, which will be thoroughly discussed at our complimentary consultations.” One of the most unique treatments performed at A Medical Spa is with Sculptra, “The Brazilian Butt Lift”. “This treatment tightens, smooths cellulite and adds volume that actually lifts the buttocks, giving it a rounder and more youthful appearance. There is minimal to no downtime with Sculptra,” says Karanzalis.
FILL THIS: Got a lunch break to spare? Fillers— aka the “lunchtime procedure,” as the Medical Spa team has dubbed it—are known for noninvasive, natural-looking results, provide quick and painless volume with little to no downtime—and all at a relatively modest price. “Every patient is unique,” says Karanzalis, “and that is how we approach corrections with fillers. We are very realistic during our complimentary consultations and thoroughly discuss a patient’s true corrective need and their desired results. We are conservative and not afraid to say no to patients. We would rather do less and have a very natural result.” Properly selected fillers will soften deep lines around the mouth, replace the volume lost over time in the cheek or jawline area, mask the appearance of dark circles, or even can be used to soften a bump or crooked nose!
NOT BY THE FAT OF MY SKINNY CHIN-CHIN: Leave the gobbler for the Thanksgiving turkey. For those double-chin woes, the fix is in. “Kybella is a brilliant product,” says Dr. Wilcox. “Who would have thought that we’d have at our disposal an injectable product that will liquify fat cells. It’s the go-to product for people with a stubborn area of fat about which they are self-conscious.” The first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that will improve the appearance of fat beneath the chin, Kybella offers a noninvasive solution with no real downtime (“Patients can expect some mild swelling or bruising,” says Karanzalis), and results can be seen in four to six weeks.
