Perfect Sense Eye Care’s rock-star ophthalmologist, Dr. Stephen Wiles, has performed more than 30,000 ophthalmic surgeries to date, and that number keeps on growing. From removing cataracts to correcting blurry vision, the doctor's trusted hands can almost instantly eliminate the need for glasses and contacts. During his LASIK procedure, for example, he carefully reshapes the outermost layer of the eye⎯the cornea⎯thereby allowing the retina to better focus incoming light. Within 24 hours, patients who previously suffered from astigmatism or constantly forgot to open their eyes each morning can enjoy crisp, clear vision.
The experienced skin cosseters at Beauty and Beyond Aesthetics keep the focus on façades with relaxing facials and exfoliating chemical peels, moving southward only for body-waxing services. These aestheticians know that apart from ingesting glow sticks, the best way to get a luminous visage is proper skincare, which they help to facilitate with antioxidant-fortified serums from Vital C, Ormedic, Clear Cell, and Daily Defense. Their chemical peels lift expired skin cells to reveal healthy layers with coats of glycolic, lactic, and kojic acid and fight a number of dermis problems, such as acne, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. All of the spa’s soothing services take place in a mellow environment designed to relax stressed minds and coax bodies into frazzle-free states more effectively than a nap on a cotton-candy pile.
There seems to be support waiting around every corner of North Kansas City Hospital’s 69-acre campus. Whether through their acute care facility, their accredited chest-pain center, a children’s learning center, or a pavilion dedicated to an array of inpatient and outpatient services, the healing center dispenses cures for ailments both big and small. In addition to fixing physical problems, such as a broken bone or a bad haircut, the hospital also offers support in the form of counseling and group fitness classes such as yoga, Zumba, and kickboxing.
Dr. Dan G. Severa and the team at Revelation Medical Skin Care treat patients' skin scourges, including acne, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, with a menu of medical-spa services. Dr. Severa, educated at Creighton School of Medicine and the recipient of two patient-care awards on Vitals.com, injects facial furrows with beauty solutions and shoots unsightly spider veins and omnipresent tax collectors full of vanishing serum. Microdermabrasion and photofacials fade dermal imperfections, and laser hair removal blasts body fuzz over the course of several sessions. The team also provides general and preventive medical care, immunizations, and treatment for depression and anxiety.
Certified by the American Board of Dermatology, Dr. Lee R. Bittenbender and his staff rejuvenate clients with a full array of cosmetic and dermatological procedures, from Botox to microdermabrasion. The noninvasive microdermabrasion equipment smoothes and soothes tired skin by gently exfoliating the top layers with a laser-cut diamond head, a more sensible option than taking your face to the Sahara Desert in a windstorm for a quick skin blast. Afterward, skin is softer and rejuvenated, as the microdermabrasion can stimulate collagen production while seeking to reduce fine lines, age spots, and acne scars.
