Cosmetic Titans Skinovatio Medical Spa Reduces the Horror of Cosmetic Procedures

There was a time when enhancing one’s beauty meant taking major risks that often produced scary results. However, with accessibility to technology, people no longer have to fear the procedures. Skinovatio Medical Spa is among the most elite in the cosmetic services industry and has led the frontline for nearly a decade.

Skinovatio Medical Spa is a premier and modern beauty destination that has established itself as a leader in providing the most innovative aesthetic services in the industry. The brand’s growth can be attributed to its team of highly-trained medical practitioners and aesthetic specialists who utilize the best and latest technologies and therapies to help clients enhance their natural beauty. Skinovatio’s team specializes in the face, body, and skin.

The brand is a unique entity in the industry as it offers customized cosmetic procedures and treatments under the care of physicians, nurses, and various specialists. Skinovatio boasts one of the best customer services as the team makes it a point to build a strong rapport with clients and takes the time to get to know them. The professionals at the facility then customize a unique wellness treatment plan that propels them to full-body health. Additionally, what makes Skinovatio so unique in the industry is its goal to prioritize its clients’ physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Skinovatio’s team provides the top-requested skin and body treatments, from laser hair removal to laser tattoo removal and non-invasive body contouring. The company can reverse the effects of aging with treatments like BOTOX, dermal fillers, photofacials, microneedling, and platelet-rich plasma or PRP, to name a few. In addition, Skinovatio provides clients with unique, affordable beauty, skincare, and body treatment packages tailored to their needs and desired outcome.

Created in 2015, Skinovatio Medical Spa is the first medical spa franchise created in Illinois and run 100% by women. Founders Kat Sallam and Aleksandra Waibel have shared their passion for beauty and provided their patients with the most innovative technologies in cosmetic medicine for over seven years. They were inspired to elevate their services after seeing the volume of patients that entered their doors within the first few years of operation. In addition, Kat and Aleksandra were inspired to create a safe and affordable environment for their patients following the feedback they received and the horror “in the basement” BOTOX stories their clients shared.

“Cheap injections are not always good injections,” said the founders. “You can still receive your procedure out of cost, but it is very important to make sure that it is done by a highly-trained injector or laser technician since the majority of these treatments carry on the risk of long life side effects. This is not the case with Skinovatio Medical Spa since we are heavily focused on maintaining a highly trained and qualified staff.”

Since then, the Skinovatio Medical Spa franchise has become one of the best in the industry, improving the lives of others with little downtime and inconvenience from the procedures performed. With the empire they’ve built, Kat and Aleksandra are looking to continue expanding the brand as they aspire to become the only medical spa available in every state in the United States.

Moving Towards Sustainability with the Esteemed Founder of Green Living Guy Productions, Seth Leitman

Today’s business landscape is shaped by the innovative efforts of thousands of visionaries across the globe. These industry leaders have shown that creating an impact requires more than having skills and abilities. At the end of the day, it all boils down to having the willingness to persevere and stay committed. In the case of Seth Leitman, more prominently known as The Green Living Guy, the power of hard work in transforming dreams into reality is amplified and magnified. 

As one of the foremost advocates of sustainability, Seth Leitman believes that business and innovation can make a significant difference in people’s lives. For this reason, he addressed himself to the challenge of creating an avenue that would allow him to save the environment and help the planet. Today, he stands as one of the brilliant authorities whose primary goal is to encourage others to go green and make more sustainable choices. 

Widely acknowledged as a car expert, Seth Leitman is also known as a green living guru and an emerging authority in the entrepreneurial scene. He is also a member of the International Motor Press Association and the local Electric Vehicle Association president.

As someone who has always been passionate about the environment, Seth Leitman decided to use his unrivaled knowledge about cars to preserve the world that everyone is living in. According to him, he wants his name to be associated with his passion-fueled advocacies. As a result, he established a company grounded in three core areas—business, innovation, and sustainability. 

In an interview, Seth Leitman, more prominently known as The Green Living Guy, talked about the role that his entrepreneurial flair plays in saving the environment. “I always loved the environment, but it became evident that brands and my name had to become one over time, doing what I love. A friend of mine too started his TV show and made a name for himself,” he said. Currently, Seth is running a company that offers social media services under Green Living Guy Productions, a division of ETS Energy Store LLC. 

With over twenty-five years of experience in the field, Seth Leitman has already worked for NYS on many green projects with NYSERDA and NYPA. This exposure in the private sector has allowed him to further his advocacy and hopes to attract and invite more people who enjoy listening to podcasts and those who are interested in electric vehicles, green living, and reversing climate change. On top of that, The Green Living Guy® also wants to connect with people who have an EV in Hudson Valley of NY and sign up and be part of their advocacy. That’s why Seth is the President of the Greater Hudson Valley Electric Vehicle Association (EVA).  

Some of the services that The Green Living Guy Productions provide include offering video, flogging, blogging, social media, and, most importantly, TV productions. As someone who has been in the industry for years, Seth Leitman has established himself as a reliable resource for entrepreneurs and businesses and government looking to get ahead in their respective fields in the most sustainable way possible. 

That’s why he recently was so proud to help organize an electric school bus press conference with Green Power Motor Company and four New York State Senators in his area of Westchester County, NY, organized by Senator Peter Harckham with Senators from across the State. From Buffalo to Long Island, people want electric school buses.

With no plans of slowing down anytime soon, Seth Leitman continues to take significant strides toward the forefront of the industry. Although he and his company have just begun creating waves with their green initiatives, they believe that they can make a positive impact on the world.

Herb Jackson Jr. Talks about Career Shifts and Managing Obstacles along with His YouTube Show, 5 Minutes With Herb

These days, it’s no big deal to see people who are successful in multiple fields. In fact, it’s almost become the norm to see well-known personalities dominating several different sectors. Herb Jackson Jr. is a great example of someone whose accomplishments in various areas show that any barrier can be broken if you persevere and stay true to your vision. Jackson is a prime example of what you can achieve if you set your mind to it and refuse to give up. His story is one of hope and inspiration and is definitely worth checking out.

You’re currently wearing many hats. Can you tell us more about what you do?

Herb: I’m a Boeing 737 captain for a major US airline. Over the years, I’ve built a solid career, amassing over 16,000 flight hours and obtaining multiple aircraft ratings. But, although I loved being in the air, I decided it was time for me to branch out and try something different. So, I made the bold move to establish a name in an industry known for its competitive nature. 

Being in the limelight is a whole different world from manning the skies. How did you prepare for this major career shift?

Herb: “Chuckles” First, I wouldn’t say I’m in the limelight. I’m just a guy trying to learn a new skill and see where it takes me. I’ve studied acting in person with several schools in the Phoenix area, along with taking classes online & via zoom from instructors in NYC and Los Angeles. It’s a constant learning curve. First, understanding some of the core principles & methods and then improving on them. I’ll always be working on something. I call it continuous improvement, and I look forward to the challenge in every opportunity to grow and improve as an actor. 

We heard that you had made several appearances on different platforms. Where have fans seen you so far?

Herb: I’ve appeared on the Channel 12 Arizona Midday show and on multiple local commercials. You may have seen some of my work with my appearance on Popfuzion TV, where I hosted the “All Things Trending” segment. I’ve also appeared in a few short films listed on IMDb.

You have a YouTube show that has piqued the interest of countless people. Tell us more about 5 Minutes With Herb. 

Herb: It’s a video podcast that I launched when we were faced with the restrictive nature of the pandemic. I had only been taking acting lessons for a year or so when everything was kind of put on hold. So the suggestion was made to “create my own content,” and that’s how the show was born. Since I’m trying to learn more about acting, I thought, well why not interview actors and other creatives. So that’s what I did. 

How has it been going?

Herb: Pretty well, I think. At first, I was a bit apprehensive, being new to interviewing, but over time, I really enjoyed having conversations with folks I’d enjoyed watching on tv and film. I’m really looking forward to season 3. 

Where do you see the show five years from now?

Herb: Ahh, the standard where do you see yourself question, haha. I have no idea actually. I have, however, thought about bringing my show to a streaming service. There seems to be a need for new content and personalities, So why not me? For now, I’m just trying to improve both as a person and an actor/host. Let the chips fall where they may.

What do you want others to learn from your journey as you’re carving your own?

Herb: I want them to realize that if they believe in themselves and work hard, things will come their way. You’ll begin to see results. And that they can achieve anything they set their mind to. As my dad once told me, “the only way you won’t make it is if you quit.”
