Altering someone's appearance requires an intuitive, artistic understanding of the human figure as well as an extensive amount of medical training. At Personique, Drs. Robert Ersek, Randy Buckspan, and James Sheridan?board-certified plastic surgeons who have collectively treated more than 50,000 patients?embrace both aspects of their chosen calling. Their procedures combine equal parts art and science as they use advanced surgical techniques to contour waistlines, reshape features, reconstruct damaged areas, and help give patients the new look that they desire. As opposed to other medical centers, Personique exclusively uses local anesthesia with intravenous sedation, which provides a more comfortable experience without the potential complications of general anesthesia.
Personique's staff of medical professionals, technicians, and aestheticians also offer nonsurgical alternatives that still strive to create more dramatic results than typical spa treatments. These procedures incorporate cutting-edge technologies as well as clinical-strength skincare products, such as those by Vivit? and Epionce. Cosmetic laser systems help remove unwanted stubble or improve skin tone, IPL technology can minimize the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation, and noninvasive liposuction alternatives help patients banish stubborn areas of fatty tissues. Additionally, the staff members perform a variety of specialized chemical peels that can accomplish a range of goals, from unclogging pores and treating acne breakouts to leaving the skin looking as youthfully radiant as a car's first pair of turn signals.

Now, at Central Park Dental, she and her staff emphasize patient interaction and feedback, believing that trust and communication set patients at ease. To further build a sense of trust, Dr. McConley outfits her office with up-to-date dental technology designed to keep patients safe while providing accurate diagnoses. Intraoral cameras espy cavities and decay in the mouth’s furthest nooks and crannies. Digital x-rays reveal the hidden goings-on inside bone and teeth while reducing the radiation and nostalgia emitted by traditional x-rays by up to 90%.

At Lash Envy, eyelash expert Christine helps her clients showcase their individuality without words or even facial expressions.

All of her services include valuable aftercare tips, which prevent the extensions from shedding or flirting shamelessly with lascivious butterflies.
Floss Dental's dentists and surgeons, many of whom are often featured on local TV stations, may specialize in preventative care, but they also beautify mouths with cosmetic- and reconstructive-surgery services, such as veneers, Invisalign, and dental implants. They harness panoramic x-rays to get a complete view of the teeth, and they broadcast these pictures on a TV, which helps them explain which treatments are necessary and to point out which tooth would look best with an inlaid diamond chip.
Floss Dental encourages patients to keep coming back by offering free Invisalign consultations and free Boost whitening once a year to those who maintain their regular cleanings. Flat-screen TVs and satellite radio entertain patients during their procedures, and sedation dentistry keeps them free from anxiety in a dream-like state.
Before Toccare Medical Spa existed, its board-certified ophthalmologists performed cosmetic and reconstructive facial surgeries at a practice called Texas Oculoplastic Consultations, next to an ambulatory surgery center. So pleased were patients with their level of care, they demanded that TOC's staff expand into the skincare field. This suggestion gained momentum and manifested in TOC Aesthetic Skin Care which, over the following 10 years, evolved into Toccare Medical Spa. Today, TOC, the surgery center, and Toccare Medical Spa sit side-by-side. At the latter, the doctors oversee treatments such as clinical facials, peels, and dermal fillers that don't require going under the knife.
