State-of-the-Art New Medi-Spa Combines the Luxury of a Day Spa With Innovative Medical Treatments by Top Physicians

 Island Medical Spa, a combination of a day spa and physician’s office that has become the premier med-spa on Hilton Head Island, is opening a new location in Bluffton/Okatie (near Sun City).  The medical spa, which offers a unique combination of physician care and spa pampering, will be launching a luxurious state-of-the-art new location at SunGate Medical Center in Bluffton/Okatie — bringing the latest innovations in anti-aging and rejuvenating skin and body treatments to local residents in a convenient new central location.

Island Medical Spa’s new Bluffton location, opening to the public this Summer,   will be located at the recently-opened SunGate Medical Center at 10 William Pope Drive in Bluffton/Okatie.  The new SunGate location, which is also golf cart accessible to residents of Sun City, will provide local residents with an opportunity to experience the most advanced treatments and services to help them look, and feel, their best – and enable them to receive expert medical care within a pampering environment.

The medical spa will be under the medical direction of Kenneth Farr, M.D. and Joseph N. Myers, Jr., M.D.  Dr. Farr is one of the leading medical professionals in the area who also serves as the medical director of Palmetto Eye Specialists, the largest ophthalmology practice in the Lowcountry.  Recently named “The Best of Bluffton”, Dr. Farr is one of the region’s leaders in ophthalmic plastic surgery and the first Certified Botox Cosmetic physician in Lowcountry.   He is joined by dermatologist Dr. Joseph Myers, who has worked extensively in serving the skin care needs of both adults and children.  Dr. Myers, who earned his Medical Degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, the South Carolina Dermatological Association and the South Carolina Medical Association, is experienced in diagnosing and treating a wide range of skin diseases and conditions, and specializes in medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology.  The medical spa also offers a team of the region’s most experienced and skilled Licensed Estheticians, Licensed Cosmetologists, Board-Certified Micropigmentation Specialists and Licensed Massage Therapists.

Island Medical Spa will offer a full range of expert cosmetic medical services utilizing the latest state-of-the-art treatments for many facial conditions such as brown spots, redness or broken capillaries that cannot be treated at all (or as effectively) by a traditional esthetician.  The medical spa specializes in microdermabrasions; Botox, Restylane and other injectables; facials; permanent make-up; acne treatment; laser vein treatment; laser hair removal and massages – as well as a number of the latest anti-aging innovations in skin rejuvenation and skin tightening.

“Island Medical Spa has become one of the top medical spas in Hilton Head Island, and we have built a strong following of clients who have embraced our concept of combining physician care with spa pampering,” says Dr. Farr, who launched the Hilton Head location in May of 2006 and wanted to bring the same level of outstanding care and state-of-the-art health/beauty services to the entire Bluffton area.  “With our new location in Bluffton/Okatie, we are thrilled to be able to offer local residents the same level of outstanding services and the latest anti-aging procedures in this convenient, and luxurious, new medical spa, and we are excited to be opening our doors at the SunGate Medical Center in August.
