During his three decades of dental experience, which included a six-year stint as a general dental officer for the United States Air Force, Dr. John N. Santin has seen a lot of smiles. And from both of his Akron Area Oral, Maxillofacial & Facial Cosmetic Surgery Center offices, Dr. Santin continues to gaze at pearly whites, keeping teeth healthy and bright with surgical and cosmetic dentistry services including corrective jaw surgery, wisdom-teeth extractions, and bone grafting. But teeth aren’t the only thing on Dr. Santin’s mind. He also provides his patients with a range of cosmetic treatments, from rhinoplasty and facial implants to Botox injections and chemical peels. The offices even come equipped with advanced ActiveFX and DeepFX fractional lasers, which are designed to blast away layers of sun damage, dead skin cells, and temporary tattoos that seeped down into the dermal layer.
A licensed chiropractor since 1989, Dr. Gary Minorik has been helping patients achieve improved spinal health at his own clinic since 1993. Today, he and his fellow back-focused doctors help diagnose and treat conditions including carpal tunnel, pinched nerves, and whiplash using restorative, hands-on techniques and a holistic approach. His staff of licensed massage therapists ease back pain with gentle strokes, helping spines achieve better alignment than a regiment of plastic army men.
At Legacy Plastic Surgeons, Drs. James Lehman and M. Devi Prasad Tantri combine more than half a century of medical and cosmetic experience. With more than 70 published articles under his belt, Dr. James Lehman is well versed in all areas of cosmetic plastic surgery, specializing in breast reduction, breast implants, and abdominoplasty. His counterpart, Dr. M. Devi Prasad Tantri, boasts more than 25 years of medical experience, and demonstrates special proficiency in hand surgery, breast reduction, and the removal of cancers from the head and neck.
Together, the doctors lead a team of skilled clinicians—many of whom have served with the doctors for more than 10 years—who revamp and beautify faces with noninvasive techniques such as microdermabrasion, facial peels, and Botox injections. Before administering any procedures or treatments, doctors consult with patients to understand their subjects' expectations and tolerance for witty knock-knock jokes.
Dr. Matt Meehan and his staff at Primal Chiropractic believe that their services can help change the lives of all clients––not just athletes or those with major spinal issues. It's with this in mind that they've mastered four chiropractic techniques along with nine signature treatments that range from classic adjustments to ultrasound and cold-laser therapies. By mastering this range of styles and treatments, Primal Chiropractic is fully suited to address any spinal issues that come their way.
Growing up on the shores of the Black Sea in Romania, Maria Suciu found herself surrounded by beauty. Her appreciation for aesthetics was not only inspired by the breathtaking beaches, therapeutic resorts, and glassy waters—which are believed to have curative powers—but also by her mother, who taught her how to fetchingly care for her skin, hair, and nails. After years of helping others strengthen their businesses as a public-relations adviser, Suciu shifted careers paths and traveled to America to share all she had learned about inner and outer wellness.
Suciu is now the owner and managing aesthetician of Callatis Spa, where she uses European-style techniques and organic, herbal formulas to pamper skin and boost outer allure. Callatis, which translates to the most beautiful, was the name of an ancient Greek colony that once inhabited the same shores that nurtured Suciu’s passion for performing cosmetic treatments. As a reiki master, Suciu also aims to balance the body and mind, targeting negative energy caused by palling around with delinquent magnets. Soothing fragrances and relaxing music permeate the spa's interior, which is small and intimate for highly personalized services.
