In Dr. Stanley Teplick's 30 years of experience, he's trained at the Mayo Clinic, served as a professor of ophthalmology, and performed 45,000 refractive surgeries. One such procedure was performed live on television, when KPTV Oregon anchor Shauna Parsons beamed her experience live into the Fox News studios. Parsons wasn?t the only high-profile patient to rely on Dr. Teplick's skills, which have also plucked spectacles off the famous faces of professional athletes, TV personalities, and Miss Oregon 2008. Whether glasses don't fit the wearers' lifestyles or patients are simply tired of harvesting contact lenses from their thorny vines, Dr. Teplick's surgeries provide solutions to a wide array of peeper problems. His practice also expands to care for the rest of the face by offering cosmetic injections and chemical peels.
With more than 20 locations in the greater Portland metro area and more throughout Washington, Tan Republic outfits their salons with sleek, modern designs and earth-toned walls, filling private tanning rooms with a suite of melanin-conjuring machines. Guests can choose from Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths or high-pressure tanning beds. The salons also offer dozens of varieties of lotion, each formulated for specific bronzing needs.
Considering they're charged with maintaining an extensive array of equipment across 15 locations, it's a good thing each state-certified member of the SunsUp Tanning Centers team commits to at least 10 hours of update training each week. The constant training prepares the specialists for working with the centers' 10 types of standup and lay-down UV beds as well as with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa booths. In addition to tanning, SunsUp offers the Fit body wrap, an infrared heat therapy designed to detoxify and slim the body. Patrons can adjust the wrap's four independent heat zones in 1-degree increments up to 130 degrees or until their body parts start to whistle.
The doctors and physician?s assistants who perform each service at Nu U Laser Centers need only choose the right laser in order to impart patients with quick, safe body and facial changes. While the Smartlipo TriPlex can less invasively slim and contours the body, the Smart Skin Co2 treatment plumps wrinkles, shrinks pores, and softens the appearance of scars. Their other treatments combat unwanted body hair, cellulite, and leg and facial veins.

The beauty mavens at GiGi Aveda Salon Spa continually uncover fresh trends and learning techniques to revitalize clients with Aveda's organic tonics. Classic spa facials begin with Aveda's Elemental Nature consultation, which helps skin therapists assess epidermal concerns before devising a customized course of treatment. Next, those immersed in the face-and-hand treatment submerge their rough palms and stiff finger puppets into a warm paraffin-wax bath. Technicians finish by trimming nails and cuticles and crowning newly supple mitts with bright OPI lacquer.
