Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center's team, which is captained by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rifai, enhances anatomical aesthetics with noninvasive treatments and surgical procedures such as liposuction and facelifts. Microdermabrasion wands zip over sun-hardened skin and injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm work to firm up facial surfaces and fade fine lines. The med spa procedures address a range of concerns, from unwanted hair to achy muscles. Furthermore, consultations at the center are always complimentary.
On an extensive résumé that boasts more than 25 years of experience, what stands out is Dr. Haitham Masri's distinction as Michigan's first board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He and other doctors helm his namesake clinic, each one wielding his or her own specialized expertise to focus on different parts of the body. Before beginning any surgery, they take as much time as necessary to answer questions and explain procedures with detailed brochures, slideshows, and diagrams.
Alongside the center’s cosmetic surgery specialty is the nonsurgical branch, where minimally invasive procedures geared toward enhancing outer appearances require less downtime. Aestheticians resurface faces with chemical peels, smooth wrinkles with dermal fillers, and man lasers to remove unwanted hair and leave bodies smooth.
Certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Michelle Hardaway and her staff customize each cosmetic procedure to the customer's needs, vein visibility, and Planeteer power. The non-invasive laser vein treatment eradicates spider veins using laser-transported micro-maids that dust away cobwebs and tidy up the epidermal underworld. Today's deal is only good for spider vein treatment, though Aesthetic Plastic Surgery also performs a full menu of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures.
Dr. Mark Berkowitz and his seasoned staff rejuvenate clients' faces and bodies with an array of both surgical and nonsurgical treatments.

Allure Medical Spa's wide realm of services keeps customers wrapped in beauty. Inside the facilities, which feature 30 patient-care rooms and small comforts such as a colorful fish tank, warm wood cabinetry, and tiled walls, guests can experience Dysport—an FDA-approved Botox-like treatment that helps defeat upper facial wrinkles such as crow's feet, between-the-eye frown lines, and worry-plowed brows. All appointments for Dysport treatments begin with a medical consultation and evaluation to determine individual needs and desired results. Then, in a procedure that takes about five minutes and features minimal downtime, the licensed and experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Charles Mok will erase evidence of disappointment and sad feelings with injections of up to 168 units—usually enough to treat most of the affected areas. Revitalized visages emerge from the procedure looking younger and fresher than newborn bread, although clients may experience minor bruising.
Of the more than 5,000 surgeries Dr. Pramit Malhotra has performed during his career, safety and natural-looking results have been his top priorities during each. To this day, the experienced plastic surgeon ensures these priorities by using advanced technology, including CoolSculpting by Zeltiq liposuction treatments, noninvasive dermal fillers, and quick-recovery postsurgery methods. These techniques have also helped Dr. Malhotra win such awards as Top Doctor 2010 from Realself.com and Best of Ann Arbor Cosmetic Surgeon in 2012.
Dr. Khan and his team of licensed laser wielders safely and precisely punish overgrowth and skin damage with no-downtime cosmetic procedures. Customers looking to forfeit fur will feel relatively little pain as the treatment directly targets follicles on the upper lip, chin, neck, underarms, or bikini area, leaving pores and skin free to celebrate the purging of its pelt. An average treatment time of 5–45 minutes allows laser pulses to deseed unwanted foliage anywhere on the body, and postprocedure patients require no downtime, allowing them to return to their usual routines. It typically takes six laser sessions for complete banishment, so customers can purchase two Groupons for the full effect.
The technicians and aestheticians at Hometown Laser Clinic & Spa wield focused light to eliminate cellulite or fat, tighten the skin, and remove hair. They also pamper bodies with less invasive spa treatments, such as facials that utilize Canadian-based Dr Renaud skin products, the same ones supplied to the 2010 Oscars. And no matter what the treatment—body contouring with radio frequency or a basic massage—aestheticians provide free consultations to answer questions about what to expect and swap needlepoint advice.
A longtime resident of Windsor, Dr. Patrick Smith, M.D. returned to the area after completing medical school and opened a family practice in 1987. He enjoyed the work but longed to transition into dermatology, for which he held both a passion and professional training. Years later, he assembled a team of estheticians and opened his namesake skincare clinic: Dr. P.X. Smith Medical Cosmetics.
Open for more than seven years, the clinic offers cosmetic and medical-grade services including Botox and Juvederm, laser skin-resurfacing treatments, and mole removal from both faces and lawns. Dr. Smith performs all medical consultations and directly supervises treatments performed by his highly trained staff.
As a skincare expert, the doctor is dedicated to educating his community about the dangers of excessive sun exposure. He worked at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre before starting his family practice and coordinated the Mark Hunt Melanoma Awareness Fund-Raising Walk to heighten awareness of skin cancer, particularly malignant melanoma.

He draws upon this experience to enhance bosoms, minimize tummies, and shorten noses of lying puppets and real live humans at Sayeg Plastic Surgery Center.
Located at Nguyen Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Centre, Med-Lazer beautifies physiques with noninvasive laser treatments.

Laser skin-tightening and cosmetic-acupuncture treatments lift sagging skin to lend faces a more youthful look without the hassle of surgery or the unlimited financial resources required to locate the fountain of youth.
Soft strains of music mingle with the aromas of essential oils at Regeneration Centre of Beauty and Health. There, a staff of beauty and wellness specialists performs hair- and bodycare services with a wide range of traditional elixirs as well as organic products and supplements. Through massage treatments, the therapists aim to restore energy, well-being, and a sense of peace akin to frolicking in a field of marshmallows. They also perform therapeutic services such as reflexology, acupressure, and moxibustion—a traditional chinese remedy that promotes circulation through the burning of mugwort over affected areas. The team performs haircuts and styling services with Schwarzkopf organic products, and improves strands’ lustre with botanical hair and scalp therapy. Detoxification supplements and herbs are also available for purchase.
Melissa Lyons had all but given up hope on finding a way to get rid of her unwanted hair. She tried waxing, shaving, and other aggressive methods but found that her skin would become red and irritated with ingrown hairs and bumps. After trying to avoid bathing suits and tank tops for years, Lyons finally decided to try laser hair removal. Her results were so positive and effective that she opened her own business in 2003, determined to help other people experience the same convenient, smooth, and confidence-boosting outcomes.
