ZL Medspa

If you have an upcoming event that you want to look stunning for, we recommend our Special Occasion Prep. ZL Medspa specializes in creating comprehensive in-office and at-home treatment plans to get your skin and body looking its absolute best. Whether it’s a wedding, reunion, awards event, birthday, or anything else, we can get you ready and glowing!

Aesthetic comprehensive consultation and VISIA Skin Analysis

The first step in getting ready for your special occasion is to set up a consultation with our co-owner and nurse practitioner, Laura Zimmerman, to discuss your desired results. We use the VISIA® Skin Analysis system to take in-depth pictures of your face and skin in order to recommend the best treatments and medical grade skincare products for your skin, in addition to tracking your progress during the duration of your treatment plan.


What kind of treatments will be recommended to get glowing skin for my big day?

Treatments may vary from patient and by timeline, but some of our favorite treatments to prep for an event include HydraFacial® (see below) and Aquagold® fine touch™ microinfusion (see below). Please see our other treatments on this page for even more options.

What is the suggested treatment timeline if I am prepping for an event?

We recommend starting your treatments and skincare products six months before your event for the best results.

VISIA Skin Analysis

Our VISIA Skin Analysis system captures both visible and hidden factors of your skin so that our specialists can recommend the best treatments and medical grade skincare products for you.


HydraFacial is a medical grade facial treatment that uses an award-winning technology to deliver rejuvenated and radiant skin.


As the first hybrid fractional laser, HALO™ combines two different wavelengths to address many conditions of the skin, and to stimulate the production of new collagen.


Aquagold fine touch is a micro injection treatment that rejuvenates the skin and achieves a healthier, brighter-looking complexion by delivering small amounts of different cosmetic injectables directly into the skin.

Natural-looking injectables

Well known for our natural-looking results, ZL offers neurotoxins, dermal fillers, and collagen-building injectables to contour the face, smooth lines and wrinkles, plump lips, provide volume, and achieve an overall rejuvenated appearance. 


CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary and effective fat removal and body contouring procedure that freezes and destroys fat cells without injections, incisions, or anesthesia.

HydraFacial: A progressive, next-level facial

HydraFacial is the ideal treatment to have before a special occasion to help your skin look its clearest and healthiest. This non-invasive facial treatment uses award-winning technology to take dull, uneven skin and elevate it to a more refreshed and radiant appearance. If you struggle with any of the following, HydraFacial may be perfect for you:

  • Dull skin
  • Acne
  • Dark spots
  • Oily skin
  • Congested pores
  • Enlarged pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Blackheads
  • Whiteheads
  • Rosacea
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

HydraFacial’s design and treatment details

With incredible healing properties and yielding long-lasting results, HydraFacial truly is a facial on another level. Using an innovative spiral design, the HydraFacial tool infuses an antioxidant-rich serum that nourishes, hydrates, heals, and protects the skin while performing a deep cleansing process that removes oil, dirt, and other damaging elements at the same time. The result is skin that is soft, fresh, and glowing.

A HydraFacial treatment often takes as little as 30 minutes, and is a very relaxing experience. Many patients have said that the HydraFacial feels like a cool paintbrush moving gently across the face. There is no downtime involved, and you’re welcome to apply makeup and go back to your regular day immediately afterward. (Those with very sensitive skin may be a little red for about an hour following treatment.) A HydraFacial provides instant results that will last from 5 to 7 days. For optimal results, we recommend six weekly treatments followed by maintenance treatments every 2 to 4 weeks for enhanced outcome.

HALO: Dual wavelengths for dramatic results

HALO is a laser treatment designed to address uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, age spots and sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, scars, brown spots, and dyschromia for all skin types. It also stimulates new collagen growth. As the first hybrid fractional laser, HALO combines two different wavelengths (micro-ablative and non-ablative) in one laser device. Both the epidermis and the dermis can be treated simultaneously, and 25% to 30% of the skin can be resurfaced. This means better results without the downtime that comes with more aggressive laser treatments.

HALO treatment details

Before treatment, a topical numbing agent will be applied, and you’ll also be given protective eyewear. Once you’re properly numbed, the treatment will begin. Many patients describe the handheld device as feeling like a “roller ball” passing along the skin. There will be a hot sensation on your skin, but very tolerable. It doesn’t hurt, but we can offer cooling packs if you prefer. In addition, cooling cream will be applied after treatment to help calm your skin.

HALO treatments take 1 to 2 hours, including the time it takes for the topical numbing agent to work. 

Common side effects include mild swelling and redness, the sensation of a sunburn, dry/rough skin, and tiny dark spots or discoloration on the skin. These are all normal, and temporary. Most patients return to normal activities the day following treatment, and see improved skin tone and texture after only 1 or 2 treatments.


Aquagold fine touch is a micro injection (micro-channeling) treatment that allows even the smallest areas to be addressed. This innovative technology rejuvenates the skin and delivers a healthier, brighter-looking complexion.

Small amounts of different cosmetic injectables (Botox®, hyaluronic acid, PRP, and vitamins) are administered directly into the skin to achieve an evenly-distributed, highly efficient delivery of treatment. The result is a smoother, brighter complexion. We recommend this about a week before your event. 

Natural-looking injectables

Cosmetic injectables can achieve amazing things, as long as you choose the right professional to administer them. Under the skilled hand of an experienced specialist, you can remove years from your appearance and take on a completely rejuvenated look. At ZL Medspa, we provide natural-looking injectables that include:

  • Neurotoxins to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines
  • Lip filler to plump and contour dull lips
  • Dermal fillers to contour the face
  • Filler glossing to deliver a refreshed appearance 
  • Sculptra for natural volume replacement

CoolSculpting: Freeze away stubborn fat

If you want to effectively remove fat from your stomach, butt, arms, waist, neck, thighs, or essentially anywhere else, CoolSculpting may be perfect for you. This revolutionary fat removal and body contouring procedure freezes and destroys fat cells, leaving behind a much-improved silhouette.

This very popular procedure was discovered and developed by scientists at Harvard, and offers a non-surgical way to look your best. Extremely cold temperatures are used to freeze persistent fat and permanently remove it from the body. The best candidates for this procedure are those who are near their goal weight, and who maintain a healthy lifestyle. 

CoolSculpting treatment details

There are no injections, incisions, or anesthesia with CoolSculpting. The steps are as follows:

  1. You will lie down on a medical chair.
  2. A cool sheet will be placed on your skin in the treatment area. 
  3. Cooling panels will be placed on top of the cooling sheet.
  4. Vacuum pressure and intense cold will be administered from the panel applicators for about 45 minutes.

You will experience tingling and numbness during the treatment, but no pain. There is no downtime, but side effects may include tenderness, swelling, bruising, and/or cramping. These are normal, and subside within a few days to a week. Patients will see early results in approximately one month, with results being finalized in 2 to 4 months.
