Hailing from New York, Dr. Rubbani continues to tout the benefits of these speedy, nonsurgical procedures at Tucson Cosmetics. She expertly injects solutions, such as fillers, collagen, and plasma, to iron out facial wrinkles with minimal downtime. She also makes use of Thermage's radio-frequency energies to tighten skin and send secret messages to truckers. For those seeking more dramatic results, Dr. Rubbani surgically alters droopy eyelids, removes moles, and mends torn earlobes.

Former chief resident in plastic surgery at University of Cincinnati and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Khang N. Thai taps into a medical fountain of youth, rejuvenating weathered visages with the latest aesthetic medical procedures. Each Botox treatment begins with a personal consultation that determines if the patient is eligible for injections, before giving them advice on whether smooth of crunchy peanut butter makes the better facial cream. All skin-spackling candidates will then receive a series of injections that can help smooth wrinkles for areas such as crow’s-feet or between the eyebrows. Any patients not eligible for the procedure will receive a full refund.
