After working in operating rooms and urgent-care clinics for years, board-certified family nurse practitioner Wendy Wilgus decided to shift her focus toward aesthetic treatments. She sought training from Empire Medical Training and ultimately opened Prestige Aesthetics, where she performs Botox injections, dermal fillers, skin-tightening, chemical peels, laser procedures, and sclerotherapy with more than 20 years of experience in skincare products and sales and more than 8 years of experience in medical dermatology. However, she still shows the same concern for her patients' comfort as she did as a health-care provider, offering mobile treatments that can be scheduled at patients' homes.
Dr. Thomas McFadden may not be an artist, but he makes the human body his canvas. After studying under three of the world?s most experience cosmetic surgeons, Dr. McFadden stepped into his own practice where he spends time getting to know his patients and understanding their aesthetic desires so that their surgeries result in the looks they?ve envisioned. A staff of anesthesia personnel and registered nurses work alongside Dr. McFadden, aiding him in his state-of-the-art surgery center and in performing less invasive treatments, such as facials, hair removal, and dermal fillers, which reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Magnolia Medical Aesthetics bypasses the need for a trek to the fountain of youth. Instead, patients can relax while a trained doctor smoothes away wrinkles with Dysport and Botox injections, plumps up lips using a Restylane filler. They also offer FDA-cleared truSculpt treatments that send heat deep into the skin to break down fat cells and flatten unwanted curves. An alternative to liposuction if the patient is near their ideal weight, the new nonsurgical procedure requires neither anesthetic nor downtime.
Armed with skills honed during his residency at Yale, Dr. Michael Traurig, a board-certified phlebologist, treats varicose and spider veins as well as restless-leg syndrome at Vein Centers for Excellence of Greenville. Lasers allow him to quickly collapse veins and slice carrots, and sclerotherapy injections allow him to target varicose veins without any anesthesia or sedation.
At Cosmo Medical Aesthetic Clinic, a staff of licensed medical professionals, including a physician, nurse practitioner, and massage therapist, help clients look and feel their best with a wide range of aesthetic and restorative treatments. Massage and reflexology work to help calm and soothe hardworking muscles, while laser hair removal, cosmetic injections, and customized skincare regimens keep outer shells looking smooth and youthful. Laser-powered treatments blast unwanted fat cells without the need for surgery, while weight-management consultation helps patients stick to long-term diet and exercise plans.
Both co-owners of HealthPoint RX help patients decide what to put in their bodies—family nurse practitioner Ginger Dailey by recommending medications and delivering injections of Botox and Juvéderm, and licensed dietician Annsley Ulrich by designing nutrition plans. Together, they run a facility where sclerotherapy vanquishes spider veins and appetite suppressants curb the urge to splice your genes with those of a cake. Perhaps most importantly, their monthly nutritional counseling outfits clients with personalized meal plans, a practice that helps them lose weight without endangering their health.
