The doctors and staff of MediPro Direct Slim use a truly holistic approach to weight loss—that is, they target fat from both the inside and out. Their arsenal of noninvasive fat-reduction technology handles the job from the outside, calling on lasers, sound waves, and mechanical massage to flush fat from the body in treatments that can be performed in as little as a lunch break. The Cavi-Lipo system, meanwhile, uses ultrasound energy to painlessly perforate fat cells in a treatment that has been demonstrated in real-time at trade shows and featured on Dr. Oz.
To spur weight loss from within, the team offers a number of effective weight-loss programs. According to the client's body type and weight loss goals, the experts can devise a regimen that incorporates specialized protein or low-calorie nutrition plans to help bodies shed pounds and gain energy.
Determined to make each client?s visit ?feel like a sunlit holiday,? Sunset MedSpa?s friendly staff?led by Dr. Thomas D. Gilberts, MD?aims to make the space a tranquil staycation retreat. Armed with Obagi, Epionce, and Jane Iredale cosmetics, experienced aestheticians give complimentary consultations, help construct daily skincare regimens, and administer custom facials that leave skin glowing bright. Physicians administer all dermal-filler injections, and trained hair-removal techs wield laser systems to remove unwanted sprouts, much like a crime-fighting robot reprogrammed to do the weeding.
In Dr. Stanley Teplick's 30 years of experience, he's trained at the Mayo Clinic, served as a professor of ophthalmology, and performed 45,000 refractive surgeries. One such procedure was performed live on television, when KPTV Oregon anchor Shauna Parsons beamed her experience live into the Fox News studios. Parsons wasn?t the only high-profile patient to rely on Dr. Teplick's skills, which have also plucked spectacles off the famous faces of professional athletes, TV personalities, and Miss Oregon 2008. Whether glasses don't fit the wearers' lifestyles or patients are simply tired of harvesting contact lenses from their thorny vines, Dr. Teplick's surgeries provide solutions to a wide array of peeper problems. His practice also expands to care for the rest of the face by offering cosmetic injections and chemical peels.
Not only has Matt Peter performed more than 30,000 laser treatments over the course of his career, he has also trained under some of the pioneers in the field. Matt leads the operations at Strokes of Beauty, a cosmetic laser clinic that gives clients respite from spider veins, pigmented blemishes, wrinkles, and unwanted body hair. The technicians here can safely treat an array of imperfections on the full spectrum of human skin tones and hair colors, and clients are granted with a satisfying laser experience that yields quick results and long-term efficacy. Matt stays on top of current laser-medicine trends by regularly attending continuing-education seminars and training sessions throughout the year.
The staff?a doctor, nurse practitioner, and licensed aesthetician?at Living Well Medical Spa help minimize wrinkles and fine lines, acne and acne scarring, and uneven skin tone with a slew of aesthetic treatments. These include Botox injections, red- and blue-light therapy, and moderate VI peels, which reduce wrinkles, acne, and acne scarring over 2?3 days. The med spa also carries and prescribes professional products such as the Epicone skincare system and prescription Latisse, an eyelash growth serum.
Few people own a trademark. Dr. Jerry Darm of Aesthetic Medicine owns three. He pioneered the trademark procedures of LaserLift and LipoLift, which use noninvasive and minimally invasive techniques, respectively, to smooth fine lines and banish excess fat. To add to his repertoire, Dr. Darm added a third trademarked treatment: MiniLift. His accomplishments have led to invitations from aesthetic medical professionals around the world—including a 14-day trip to China to speak about his treatments at conferences in several cities.
The LaserLift procedure reverses damage caused by exposure to the sun, free radicals, and gravity malfunctions by regenerating collagen and tightening the skin with laser wavelengths. LipoLift destroys fat with a laser that melts fat cells through a small incision and allows them to be removed more gently than with traditional liposuction. The MiniLift is performed only by a board-certified plastic surgeon and is available only at Aesthetic Medicine. At the Lake Oswego location, which boasts more than 14,000 square feet, Dr. Darm helps patients feel beautiful in other ways, including combating spider veins with laser therapy or sclerotherapy and keeping wrinkles at bay with injectable fillers. The center's weight-loss program helps patients shed pounds under the guidance of medical specialists and dieticians.
