Dr. Michael Damian Becker returned to his hometown of Louisville after perfecting his skills at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry, joining the navy, and completing a residency at Portsmouth Naval Medical Hospital. Today, he puts his extensive education to use at Hillview Family Dentistry, cleaning teeth, repairing cavities, and performing dental procedures such as implants and extractions. His office stays open for evening appointments to accommodate those who work or compete in candy-eating contests during the day.
Helmed by James K. Hargan, DMD, MD, The Oral and Facial Surgery Center of Kentucky's helpful staff harnesses the vein-removing might of the Gemini laser system to help smooth out patient skinscapes. Spindly strata vacate within 30 minutes thanks to two distinct wavelengths capable of breaking up even small leg veins and spider veins, as well as any small moons orbiting the patient. Lasers heat visible vessels just below the skin surface until they collapse and reabsorb into the body, and a skin-cooling feature reduces discomfort during therapy, though slight redness may still occur. Two to three treatments are typically recommended for optimal results, and patients can expect to witness vascular fading within eight to 10 weeks, depending on vein severity and their proximity to spotlights.
Dr. Michael Samuel and Dr. Steve Samuel at Body Allure refine the human form with a three-pronged approach. Their diet programs help reduce cravings and chase away pounds, and their wellness programs recalibrate unbalanced hormone levels and address the needs of the adrenal glands. Among their beauty treatments, fat-fighting injections help patients fit into their most revealing lederhosen, and SmoothShapes lasers diminish the appearance of cellulite.
Body Shapes Medical helps patients feel better from the inside out with a variety of custom, clinical options. The medical staff is helmed by Board-certified physicians, and their talented medical team of nurses and nurse practitioners includes Leesa Ennenbach, RN, BSN, who has been inducted into the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and is certified in cosmetic injectables and laser treatments.
The team provides hormone optimization for men and women, Juvaderm and Botox injections, and personalized, medically supervised weight-loss programs, including doctor-prescribed HCG plans and B12 injections. They also specialize in rendering bodies as sleek as a just-greased bowling ball with nonsurgical services such as Exilis skin tightening and body contouring.
At Advanced Dental Center, dentist Rachel Talis and her team keep smiles healthy and beautiful. Dr. Talis graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, and went on to complete advanced training in areas such as dental implants and the treatment of gum disease. She also performs Zoom! teeth-whitening sessions that erase stains from smoking, drinking coffee, or mistaking a fountain pen for black licorice.
Health and Image’s team of medical professionals—including a physician, a medical assistant, and a permanent-cosmetics technician—performs detailed aesthetic services that can help ease the signs of aging or shed unwanted pounds. Treatments such as Obagi Blue chemical peels, cosmetic injections, and laser skin-tightening reduce the appearance of wrinkles caused by worrying about how your wrinkles look. The staff also prescribes appetite suppressants which, when combined with a healthy diet and exercise plan, can help spur weight loss.
