Boasting an expert staff led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Justin Piasecki, MD, and Lisa Davenport, RN-BSN, Harbor Plastic Surgery tightens wrinkles and beautifies mugs within their intimate boutique-style practice. Each 60-minute treatment begins with a complimentary cosmetic consultation to determine if the minimally invasive procedure is right for each patient’s crevice-filling needs. Crows' feet, frown folds, and Father Time’s tic-tac-toe games will quickly retreat from facial trenches after an injection of Botox or Dysport––both of which temporarily paralyze the muscles, reducing the unsightly lines that repetitive muscle movement can cause. About two to seven days following injection, countenances emanate smoother rays for three to six months, freeing even the most diligent brows from evidence of past feats of furrowing strength.
Gig Harbor Chiropractic & Massage is helmed by husband-and-wife doctor duo Greg and Keri Messer, two graduates of Western States Chiropractic College who set out together to annihilate pain one spine at a time. One of the doctors or their skilled staff members will begin your exam with a conversation about your back bothers and health habits. Next, you'll receive a complete chiropractic examination that tests your reflexes, flexibility, posture, and more, followed by a computerized spinal assessment to discover if any disks are bulging, shoulders are slumping, or vertebrae have forgotten the state capitals. If a bit of extra dorsal detective work is required, you'll receive up to two x-rays before the doctor reports his or her findings and recommendations for any necessary treatment.
