Located in the Kohl's and Fresh Markey shopping plaza, in the heart of beautiful, growing University Park; The Gallery Salon is a full service salon providing all phases of hair services, acrylic, pink and white and natural nails, full body waxing, and skin health.
Under the guidance of Dr. Robert Carlson?a board-certified general and cardiothoracic surgeon with a passion for anti-aging medicine?, the team at Andlos Institute strives to make patients feel and look younger than their years. While the center's main focus is on bioidentical hormone therapy, Dr. Carlson and his staff also embrace a wide variety of approaches ranging from traditional medical care to advanced cosmetic procedures. For instance, tumescent liposuction helps sculpt and contour patients' bodies using local anesthesia, which incurs minimal amounts of scarring compared to other, more invasive liposuction techniques. Additionally, Botox and injectable dermal fillers can create a youthfully toned countenance, hair-loss therapy revitalizes fading manes, and customized, physician-guided fitness regimens help patients get in shape.
Founder of MD Skin Effects, Dr. Mona Mangat, saves the skin of her clients with the help of her teammate Karen Larson, a licensed skincare specialist of more than 20 years. The team's advanced medical aesthetic services can address beauty needs ranging from removing unwanted hair by laser to unclogging pores with peels and mini plungers. Beauty injections fight aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines using FDA-approved prescription serums, and microdermabrasion employs aluminum-oxide crystals to shed the skin’s top layer and spur the creation of more collagen.
When the stylists at Natural Vanity say "natural," they mean it. Each master-level stylist on the team has trained at the Aveda Institute, learning how to beautify tresses all-natural products that are derived from plant sources and manufactured with wind energy generated by the Jolly Green Giant's snoring.
In addition to making clients look their best, the team also keeps them comfortable. While patrons receive a foot scrub, they relax in massaging chairs. After they've been pampered, they can browse the wares in the onsite vintage boutique.
Overseen by a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard University Medical School and owned by a former model cum medical aesthetician, LivingYoung Center represents the apex of medicine and beauty. Since board-certified plastic surgeon Karen Singer earned her MD at Harvard, the doctor has spent more than 30 years developing a deft, artistic approach to whittling the contours and lifting the slack skin of patients while sculpting her own body through competitive ballroom dancing and innovative use of shoulder pads. She acknowledges that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to any treatment, and so attends closely to her patients' aspirations to create slim, youthful exteriors or rejuvenate them from within with bio-identical hormone therapy.
During her decade as a model, owner Katie Kaffai discovered a scientific interest in beauty and evaluated industry methods for making faces glow, such as surprising tween mannequins with teddy bears. She sought clinical training in aesthetics and laser technology to formalize this experience, developing a program of high-tech, noninvasive treatments to develop camera-ready skin at the cellular level. Kaffai and Singer both belong to the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine to stay current with innovations in the field, and command an elite team that includes a doctor who specializes in facial anatomy in order to safely administer rejuvenating injections.
