Dr. Benjamin Killey has notoriously steady hands. They helped him win the 1997 MTNA collegiate state championship in piano for Illinois, and later, to treat ER patients with enough finesse to earn him a feature on TLC's Untold Stories of the ER. The emergency-medicine doctor has since refocused them on cosmetic treatments, undergoing the training and certification that enabled him to supervise Blue Haven Medical Spa.
Today, his hands wield Nd:YAG lasers and medical-grade skincare products that remedy various dermal conditions, including wrinkles and unwanted hair. All of Dr. Killey's laser services, from facials to spider-vein removal, charge by time spent, rather than by area covered, and adjust to fit the client's desired results. He puts patients at ease by ensuring that only physicians, and never interns, administer procedures and by using tools such as chilled-air machines that cool laser-affected pores.
A stress-free oasis in the heart of downtown, Seattle Executive Spa offers a tranquil counterpoint to the bustling energy of the city just outside its doors. The spa’s aestheticians and therapists practice their crafts within private treatment rooms, where medical-grade facials help correct blemishes and a combination of traditional and Hawaiian massage styles untie pineapple-size knots or pry away floral shirts that have taken root on backs and shoulders. Though the team specializes in relaxing individual treatments, they can also accommodate large groups for events such as weddings, bachelorette parties, or corporate functions.
Under the expert guidance of advanced registered nurse practitioner Sima Rafii, the staff at Sima Medical & Cosmetic Clinic restores patients' health and confidence with a full menu of wellness services. Their medical treatments cover dermatologic conditions such as acne, rashes, and sun damage, as well as yearly health exams and skin-cancer screenings. Armed with lasers, they turn their hands to cosmetic services such as hair removal, fotofacials, and Zerona body-contouring treatments. The skincare experts also smooth epidermises with microdermabrasion and Botox injections, and coach clients on how to care for their skin and train it to win all-state skin care trophies.
With 25 years of professional practice, board-certified nurse practitioner Margaret L. Larson recently expanded Larson Family Medicine & Medical Aesthetics to include cosmetic procedures performed in a medically sound environment. Margaret and the rest of the licensed staff smooth away wrinkles with injections of Botox and Juvéderm and improve epidermal appearances with laser devices developed by Alma Lasers. Patients can also visit the center for laser hair reduction, skin rejuvenation, skin-tightening and resurfacing treatments, and varicose- and spider-vein removal.
Larson Family Medicine & Medical Aesthetics recommends Metagenics products to optimize the body's natural repair systems. The cutting-edge company's nutritional supplements promote health more effectively than eating an apple one day or adding bits of a Men's Health magazine to a protein smoothie.
Denice Schwind knows skin. A board-certified physician assistant and cosmetic dermatology specialist, she has devoted nearly the past decade to advanced training in aesthetic treatments. Now, as the owner of Pūr Skin Clinic, she and her skilled colleagues aim to share that expertise by providing premiere services in a modern, upscale environment. The aestheticians can fine-tune pores with treatments ranging from facials and microdermabrasion, to nonsurgical, anti-aging alternatives such as laser rejuvenation and exfoliating chemical peels. The clinic also specializes in injections and dermal fillers, and has been recognized by Allergan as a Platinum Plus Certified Partner. But Pūr Skin Clinic aims to be more than just a pretty façade—the haven is dedicated to serving the community by supporting a variety of charitable organizations.
Triple board-certified surgeon Dr. Jan Zemplenyi of Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery—which opened in 1989—makes himself available 24/7 after every patient’s reconstructive, cosmetic, or otolaryngology surgery. He can reach for Botox injections to ward off facial wrinkles, or use a Reaction by Viora system, which combines three radio-frequency modes and a vacuum effect, to tighten skin while simultaneously spooking cellulite until it runs away. The doctor also performs noninvasive treatments such as chemical peels and laser resurfacing, and donates his services to victims of domestic violence.
