The doctors at Great Lakes Dermatology help patients look their best with a full range of medical and cosmetic treatments. They address everything from psoriasis and malevolent moles to wrinkles and leg veins. Botox injections tame wrinkle muscles for months on end, and laser treatments zap sun spots, pigmented blemishes, and fencing scars.
At the offices of Dental on 45, no detail pertaining to patient comfort has been overlooked. Distilled, bottled water hydrates guests in lieu of tap water to prevent potential contamination and a modern sterilization system further impedes the spread of germs. The greatest comfort, however, comes from the bedside manners of the two doctors, who use their many years of experience to strengthen smiles with porcelain veneers, full porcelain crowns, Invisalign braces, and an in-office power whitening system. Along with their general and cosmetic dentistry, the duo also treat conditions such as gum disease, implant dentistry, and root canal treatments, referring patients to dependable outside specialists as necessary.
Together with a team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and medical staff, the board-certified physicians at Complete Clinics design weight-loss programs based on patients' body chemistry and specific goals. They use health markers such as resting metabolic rate, insulin resistance, and cholesterol and blood-glucose levels to customize their programs. A personalized, calorically nonrestrictive diet helps patrons achieve sustainable results without counting calories, purchasing costly specialized foods, or measuring out portions with a microscope. The clinical crew can bolster weight-loss efforts with doctor-supervised HCG injections, B12 injections, and prescription medications. This hands-on clinical approach has garnered attention from numerous local media outlets, including NBC and CBS News.
To further individualize treatment, the doctor and medical staff offer specialty programs for brides-to-be, new moms, and people with diabetes or polycystic ovarian syndrome. They help clients meet health and wellness goals with innovative equipment such as Cyclic Variations in Adaptive Conditioning technology, a pressure-changing device designed to simulate interval resistance training.
Many doctors are happy with just one medical degree. Dr. Vladimir Panine has two—one from his native Moscow and one from the Boston University School of Medicine, which preceded his residency at Stanford University. Since 1994, he’s applied his extensive medical knowledge to beauty treatments that vanquish dermal imperfections, slim bodies, and remove antennae. In combination with his cosmetic treatments, Dr. Panine uses professional skincare products, such as My Body, Gly Derm, and Avene.
Bella Medica's alternative cosmetic treatments address a host of bodily concerns—from aging and loose skin to smoking habits and weight gain—using natural, toxin-free green spa practices. Tackling sun-damaged and acne-prone skin, the anti-aging skin Medica Vitalize chemical peel aims to seize youth back from Father Time, throwing hourglass sand in his eyes and forcing him to eat minute rice. The peel employs a blend of retinoic, resorcinol, beta-hydroxy, and alpha-hydroxy acids to help smooth the texture of facial skin by removing its outer layers and innermost repressed feelings. One of the only superficial peels suitable for all skin types, the Vitalize peel incurs little to no downtime after treatment.
Dr. Shannon Watley, a board-certified OB/GYN, believes that physicians need to act more like teachers?not just healers?and educate their patients about living healthy so they can prevent larger health problems down the line. So she founded Watley Medspa & Wellness Center Ltd. to provide individuals with wellness information tailored to them. There, she teaches clients how eating nutritious whole foods is even more important than exercising or heading to the moon when it comes to losing weight and that bodies need proper rest and hydration.
Once they make sure clients feel great with wellness services and massages, Dr. Watley and her staff help them look great, too, with such treatments as skin-nourishing HydraFacials, body-contouring i-Lipo, and wrinkle-softening cosmetic injections.
