One wasn't enough for Radiant Complexions Dermatology Clinics—its team of doctors and nurse practitioners have established 11 offices across Iowa and Arizona in the past decade. At each location, dermatology specialists preserve the health and unique character of all skin types with medical and cosmetic treatments. They can resolve all types of skin problems, and tend to strictly aesthetic concerns from the outside in with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers. Offices are equipped with advanced StarLux fractional lasers, which firm the skin by stimulating collagen production at the dermal layer, and VelaShape machines that use radio and light energies to reduce the appearance of cellulite and sagging skin. A scientifically formulated line of skincare products allow for at-home care with glycolic acid, retinol, and Vitamin C.
"A soothing, comfortable atmosphere is very important," says Dr. Manoj Sharma in a video on his website. It’s a sentiment he took to heart when designing his office, where walls painted in calming earth tones surround comfortable dental chairs. The comfort extends to his use of advanced technology, such as the ViziLite—which illuminates healthy tissue in a white light and shows cancerous tissue as dark during cancer screenings. Aside from improving smiles with whitening treatments and crowns, Dr. Sharma also helps prevent snoring with Snore Guard, a custom mouthpiece that keeps airways open and soft tissue from vibrating at levels that attract bears.
Led by Dr. Sudeep Punia, a board-certified doctor and member of the National Society of Cosmetic Surgeons, the staff at Abloom Med Spa takes aim at wrinkles, cellulite, unwanted body hair, and other skin imperfections to resurrect youth in all parts of the body. Technology by Matrix IR helps correct skin laxity, using heat to restore tone and smooth mild to moderate wrinkles, and SmartLipo body-sculpting lasers help diminish fat cells and elicit leaner forms with a quicker recovery time than traditional liposuction. Additional services include cosmetic injections, like BOTOX, Juv?derm, and Voluma, as well as facials that use Image Skincare products to target common problems including hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and milk mustaches.
Most 12-year-olds have no idea what they want to do with their lives, but that?s when Maria DeNicola first found the inspiration to study electrolysis. As of today, she?s been doing electrolysis for more than 32 years and has even devised an all-new technique to attack full follicles with alternating current. DeNicola also eliminates unwanted body hair through laser hair removal or break-dance competitions on sandpaper.
With the help of her med spa team, which includes two registered nurses, DeNicola pampers faces with microdermabrasion, lasers, and high-end products from La Maison Clayton Shagal and PCA Skin, as well as fights wrinkles with Botox and Juvederm injections. DeNicola happily serves members of the transgender community with her services and formerly acted as president of transgender support group A Rose.
Expertise reigns at Advanced Laser Clinics, part of a national chain that has performed more than 250,000 laser treatments. Technicians can calibrate the center's Lumenis LightSheer laser system to treat a range of hair and skin types, with each noninvasive session incurring minimal amounts of downtime afterward. Microdermabrasion treatments and laser tattoo removals lock mechanical arms to keep the topmost dermal layers as spotless as a Dalmatian spy disguised to infiltrate a Labrador militia. Staff members look past the surface with injectable services, which can hide minor blemishes or boost a client's metabolism.
When they aren't educating other physicians on the latest advancements in regenerative medicine, the physicians at Protea Medical Center spend their days helping patients look better and feel more confident. They offer a range of cosmetic and regenerative services, addressing nutrition, weight troubles, and hormone imbalances as part of their women?s and men's health programs, and they use stem-cell therapies to treat everything from cardiovascular disease to wrinkles. Botox and Juv?derm also help smooth out facial folds, erasing years of stress with a simple injection, and injection therapies play an equally critical role in the center's nonsurgical orthopedic interventions, which help decrease pain and strengthen ligaments weakened from repeated attempts to open jelly jars.
