Medical Spa Leaders Tell How to Avoid Unnatural-Looking Enhancement

After recent celebrity plastic surgery rumors, doctors at Spa One, offering injectables and laser hair removal in Albany, tell how to get a natural look.

Albany, New York (February 2015) — According to the medical aesthetic specialists at Albany's Spa One (, recent plastic surgery rumors about celebrities could have been avoided if they underwent more subtle cosmetic enhancement techniques. Non-surgical procedures offered at medical spas produce more discreet results, they say, including procedures ranging from injectables and chemical peels to laser hair removal.

"At our Albany med spa, we offer only the most trusted and proven techniques and take a conservative approach to aesthetic enhancement," says Dr. Jeffrey Rockmore, a partner at The Plastic Surgery Group, which oversees Spa One. "Our patients appreciate that our experienced staff of specialists, including 3 licensed estheticians, emphasizes results that look very natural."

In recent weeks, celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, Renée Zellweger, and Uma Thurman have drawn speculation from the media that they had undergone cosmetic surgery. In each case, tabloid reporters weighed in with stories quoting the opinions of plastic surgery "experts."

Whether the speculation is accurate or not, Spa One's specialists say med spa-style treatments are a good alternative for anyone who is interested in refreshing their appearance without making dramatic changes.

"We have patients who come in for CoolSculpting® (fat reduction), laser skin resurfacing, and facials at our Albany clinic," says Alex LaPietra, the coordinator at Spa One. "We provide a lot of treatments that produce really impressive results that are still very discreet, either because they develop gradually or because they don't dramatically alter the structures of the face or body."

Spa One is supervised by the team of board-certified plastic surgeons at The Plastic Surgery Group, including Dr. Rockmore, who work closely with the med spa team to ensure the highest standards are maintained. The facility's philosophy is more medically oriented than what is offered at a day spa, LaPietra says.

"Even the skin care products available at our Albany spa are medical-grade," LaPietra says. "A true medical spa that's supervised by board-certified physicians offers a unique environment unlike anything that people may associate with salons or day spas."

The cosmetic changes women and men can achieve at a medical spa are transformative, she says, but rarely attract the type of attention that people get after a dramatic plastic surgery.

"Celebrities are put under a microscope, and so any tweak will trigger rumors about what kind of work they had done," LaPietra says. "Med spa procedures enhance an individual's appearance without changing it. In recent years, treatments have been getting more effective and more subtle at the same time. That's why they seem like a good choice for celebrities — and for anyone who wants natural-looking enhancement."
