Although her training qualifies her to perform life-saving surgeries, Dr. Joanna DeLeo knows that, for many clients, the most valuable treatments are the ones that address longstanding aesthetic issues. With increased self-esteem in mind, she now harnesses the power of cosmetic procedures to match clients’ outer appearances to their inner spirits. Each day, she and her staff help remove acne with Isolaz treatments, plump away facial blemishes with Botox injections, and lift sagging skin with Ultherapy. For areas below the neck, they employ their multipurpose MedLite C Series laser to blast away unwanted hair, tattoos, or pigmentation.
Though board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Jeneby specializes in transforming patients' appearances, his own face may look very familiar. The diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery has shared his extensive knowledge of both adult and pediatric plastic-surgery procedures with stations such as ABC News and KENS 5, and he was named one of the best area plastic surgeons by S.A. Scene. Dr. Jeneby also offers expertise as a national trainer on topics such as Lipotherme, SmartLipo body sculpting, and DOT therapy laser skin resurfacing.
At the equally acclaimed Plastic & Cosmetic Center, Dr. Jeneby and his staff perform surgical and noninvasive procedures ranging from rhinoplasties to SmoothShapes laser cellulite treatments. The facility houses a convenient onsite lab for blood draws and a concierge room where family members can watch television or their own DVDs from home. Clients can head upstairs to Spa Black to be treated with lasers that remove unwanted hair, banish pigmented lesions, or read barcode versions of Shakespeare.
The award-winning Dr. Dinakar Golla, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Golla Center for Plastic Surgery and Sacred Image Med Spa, has been recognized by universities, Merck, and the national medical honor society Alpha Omega Alpha. When he's not lecturing, publishing articles, and teaching other surgeons to perfect their skills and properly quote medical dramas, Dr. Golla joins his team to help patients look and feel their best. Traditional surgical options, such as rhinoplasty and tummy tucks, join injectables and laser treatments to comprise a full menu of rejuvenating services.
Ideal Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery's offices, associated with Straka & Mcquone, Inc., are all designed to make patients feel comfortable and safe. Yale graduate and board-certified surgeon Dr. Paul Leong performs all facial treatments, except for laser hair removal, which is done by a trained technician and supervised by Leong. Each option includes a full, personal consultation with Dr. Leong to discuss treatment options and design individualized plans. Laser hair removal works over six sessions to gradually reduce hair growth, and is considerably less painful than getting dipped in hot wax and coated in feathers. The sessions may be used for underarms or any small areas—upper lip, chin, fingers, toes, or ears—but may be upgraded to a medium-sized area (such as bikini line) for an additional $59 per treatment.
Dr. Dennis Hurwitz and the team of skinsmiths at Hurwitz Center for Rejuvenation rewind face clocks to an earlier time with a dizzying array of skin-revitalizing treatments. During the doctor-supervised microdermabrasion treatment, a steady-handed aesthetician removes the outermost layer of skin, revealing a face that's as brilliant as a glow-in-the-dark copy of The Republic. The exfoliating technology can stimulate collagen production, fade fine lines and scars, even out skin tone, and give faces enough confidence to play hide-and-seek with the Invisible Man. Meanwhile, 20 units of Botox injected into the facial muscles behind crow's-feet or frown lines can calm nerve impulses, relaxing wrinkles and leaving faces smooth and sleek.
While successfully sculpting bodies at Premier Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Vassar Heil felt the need to further help patients reach their aesthetic goals, which is why he founded Acqua Blu Medical Spa. The office blends the tranquility of a day spa with advanced, noninvasive med-spa services, from the Visia digital skin analysis to dermal fillers and laser hair removal, performed by a trained team of physician assistants, registered nurses, trained laser technicians, and aestheticians. Robe-and-slipper-clad guests can wander through the blue and white spa?swirling with the scent of lavender and the sounds of water bubbling over rocks?before retreating into private treatment rooms. Each tranquil space boasts a living-room-like setting complete with European-inspired furnishings, neutral hues, and dim light flickering from lamps being held by the Partridge family.
