A fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology since 1989, Lorrie Klein specializes in the artistic application of cosmetic dermatology. She and her experienced visage-refiners emphasize the individual appearance and needs of each patient while ensuring that each treatment is as comfortable as possible. Botox treatments, de-quirk asymmetrical eyebrows back into place ($25-$300,) retouch corners of the mouth ($80-$130,) and smooth contemplative forehead lines ($160-$260.) Dr Klein's laser hair removal services, employ Gentlease and GentleYAG lasers, which minimize black and brown hair while utilizing a cool spray to alleviate discomfort. The lasers zap underarms smooth for $99, and a lip/chin double defoliation is available for $150. Crystal microdermabrasion targets discolored or irregular patches of skin for $175 per treatment, forcing them to conform with the rest of your well-behaved skin cells. Sterile aluminum oxide crystals non-invasively reduce freckles, acne scars, and sun damage with no downtime later.
A trio of physicians—a dermatologist, an ophthalmic surgeon, and a plastic surgeon—keeps watch over both DermaBare offices, warding off signs of aging from wrinkles to cellulite. Registered nurses aim to obliterate unwanted hair at the root using one of three advanced laser hair-removal machines: the Lumenis LightSheer Duet, Candela GentleLase, and GentleLase Pro. Heated energy rays can also be pointed at faces to help encourage collagen production or send spider veins scattering off of legs and underneath the floorboards. DermaBare's other aesthetic treatments include dermal fillers, chemical peels, and plastic surgery treatments such as breast augmentation and rhinoplasty.
At Comfort Laser Clinics, experienced physician Samuel Sunshine, MD, and his staff of trained and licensed registered nurses oust unwanted follicles, tattoos, and inches with an array of treatments. The specialists wield powerful pulses of light to zap follicles for a fraction of a second, permanently stymieing their ability to sneak back onto bodies while disguised as fake mustaches. Permanent body art gradually fades under the exposure of the ConBio laser, while other laser treatments help to tighten sagging skin, hone in curves, and rid toenails of sprouting fungi or topiaries.
Led by experienced optometrist Dr. Stanton Kim—who has spent more than 25 years in practice—the eye-care specialists at Eye Contact Optometry cater to patients of all ages. In doing so, they provide services such as vision therapy for better learning and orthokeratology treatments that serve as a noninvasive alternative to Lasik surgery. Before departing, their patients can restock supplies of contact lenses as well as prescription glasses and sunglasses.
For those wondering whether or not they need vision-correction surgery, the staff at Feinerman Vision Center has developed an online quiz as the first step in a comprehensive consultation process. After answering a series of questions—such as “Would your career activities improve if you were to be less dependent on glasses?” and “Are you sure your glasses wouldn’t be jealous?”—prospective patients are told what vision-correction techniques might be best for them.
Of course, no surgery takes place until board-certified surgeon Dr. Gregg Feinerman confirms the quiz’s notions during a follow-up consultation. Dr. Feinerman specializes in both LASIK and cataract surgery. He uses high-tech equipment to sharpen eyesight, including a blade-free LASIK procedure that relies solely on lasers to reshape the cornea. During Crystalens surgery, a different type of vision-correcting treatment, he replaces the eye’s natural lens with a new, flexible one. Many of his treatment methods, which also include custom cataract surgery, take about 15 minutes to complete and incur little downtime.
