Dr. Joseph Ripepi, the podiatrist behind Ripepi Foot & Ankle Clinics, Inc., has the clinical expertise to treat a variety of lower-limb maladies. After graduating from the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, Dr. Ripepi earned certification from the American Board of Podiatric Surgery and became a fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. For close to two decades, the caring doctor has operated a solo practice and maintained medical privileges at several area hospitals. Dr. Ripepi also has completed specialty training in lasers, which he uses to dissolve nail fungus or remove shoes that are knotted too tight.
Tucked inside of a full-service medical clinic, Premier Laser Care administers cosmetic and aesthetic treatments with the assistance of FDA-approved equipment and the supervision of board-certified doctor Carmen Popa. To reinstate youthful full-body beauty, Dr. Popa and her staff utilize ClearScan laser technology to vanquish unwanted hair and vascular issues such as spider veins or broken capillaries; broadband light therapy allows them to pulse away sun spots, age spots, redness, and other issues caused by aging, sun exposure, or a public reading of your fifth-grade diary. Lax skin around the eyes or on the body can be re-tightened with fractional resurfacing or SkinTyte II infrared energy, respectively, and finer lines and wrinkles find themselves swiftly smoothed out after injections of Botox or cosmetic dermal fillers.
Western Reserve's team of plastic surgeons and licensed aestheticians restore complexions with high-end skincare products and attentive service. Custom micropeels retexturize and rejuvenate worn visages to deter the effects of aging, skin sensitivity, acne, and Halloween masks that have fused to patients' faces ($100–$150). A comprehensive skin evaluation helps the skin sculptors determine the correct balance of hydrating and exfoliating products needed to effectively treat individual skin qualms such as fine lines, discoloration, and sun and environmental damage ($50). Like parents ushering children off to school, each micropeel gently encourages dead skin cells to leave home and never return. At the end of three tailored treatments, patients should expect previously furrowed brows to feel more hydrated, relaxed, and youthful.
When you specialize in laser hair removal you're bound to rack up an impressive number of treatments—just ask the staff at Skin Deep Laser Spa. To date, the cosmetic therapists have performed more than 10,000 treatments, which is more than the entire continent of Antarctica. Their years of experience and use of the Candela GentleLase laser means unwanted body hair can expect to be plucked. For similarly noninvasive treatments, they also offer VelaShape's cellulite-removing mix of infrared heat, radio frequency, and massage.
Board certified in plastic surgery and otolaryngology (head-and-neck surgery), Dr. Steven Goldman of Beachwood and Westlake Plastic Surgery artfully reshapes bodies and wards off the signs of aging. He tucks tummies and enhances bust lines in his clinic's in-office operating suite, while the registered nurses, medical assistants, and medical aestheticians on his team tend to less invasive procedures such as beauty injections, noninvasive CoolSculpting, and laser treatments. The clinic's med spa offerings include customized facials and pharmaceutical peels, in addition to lash extensions, body waxing, and surfboard waxing.
Hard work does not scare Dr. Robert Rossio. He is not only a board-certified plastic surgeon and the medical director of Cosmetic Rejuvenation Center, but a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force. Dr. Rossio's discipline fuels everyone on staff at Cosmetic Rejuvenation Center, giving the team the laser focus needed to help clients achieve their aesthetic goals with advanced cosmetic procedures. The team's repertoire includes specialties in tattoo removal with a RevLite EO Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, IPL treatments, and dermal-filler injections. Dr. Rossi also oversees his skilled aestheticians as they ameliorate client's skincare woes with exfoliating SkinMedica and ResultsRx chemical peels, crystal microdermabrasion, and skin-loving reflective wallpaper.
