Tooele doctor opens Symphony Medical Spa

Laser light, radio frequency treatments bring ‘happiness and self-confidence’ with non-surgical fat, wrinkle reduction 

After 22 years of family practice in Tooele, a Tooele doctor is taking up professional sculpting.

Dr. Carolyn Forbes recently opened Symphony Medical Spa in NorthPointe Medical Park in Tooele City, where she will offer body sculpting.

“I may not be saving lives,” she said. “But I am bringing people happiness and helping them with self-confidence.”

Symphony Medical Spa offers fat reduction with SculpSure laser; reduction of crows feet, acne scars, stretch marks, facial redness and hair removal with ICON laser treatments; and wrinkle reduction using TempSure treatments.

All the processes used at Symphony are non-surgical and non-invasive, Forbes said.

The fat reduction process with SculpSure laser treatments destroys and liquefies fat, allowing it to be flushed out of the body, not absorbed into the bloodstream, according to Forbes.

“Fat reduction isn’t necessarily designed for weight loss,” Forbes said. “But to help you get rid of fat in those stubborn areas that keep you from looking the way you want to look.”

Non-surgical fat reduction procedures like SculpSure are a much safer option than surgery, according to Forbes.

The benefits of non-surgical fat reduction with SculpSure laser include: improved appearance, improved self-esteem, no need for anesthesia, no recovery time, minimal side effects, and lasting results. The results are permanent unless you gain a lot of weight following the fat reduction treatment, Forbes said.

Popular parts of the body for SculpSure treatment include under the chin, the belly, love handles, the back and thighs, she said.

The ICON laser uses powerful light to break apart tissue and prompt healing that improves the tone and texture of skin.

ICON treatments can be useful for skin revitalization, skin renewal, scar removal, stretch mark treatment, hair removal, skin resurfacing, and leg vein clearance, according to Forbes.

TempSure is a radiofrequency-based treatment for wrinkles. TempSure’s radiofrequency gently heats the layers of tissue beneath skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Along with facial lines and wrinkles, it helps tighten skin and improves the appearance of cellulite, Forbes said.

Forbes earned a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Brigham Young University. After graduating from BYU, Forbes headed to Indiana where she completed medical school at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis. She completed a three-year residency at Christie Regional Medical Center in Wichita, Kansas. Forbes has completed specialty training in lasers.

In 1997, Forbes opened a family medical practice in Tooele City. 

Forbes is an affiliate at Mountain West Medical Center and serves as a board member and owner of NorthPointe Medical Campus. 

Symphony Medical Spa is located at 2376 N. 400 East, Suite 103 in Tooele City. It may be reached at 435-258-7172.
