In Dr. Stanley Teplick's 30 years of experience, he's trained at the Mayo Clinic, served as a professor of ophthalmology, and performed 25,000 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.
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.
Few people own a trademark. Dr. Jerry Darm of Aesthetic Medicine owns three. He pioneered the trademark procedures of LaserLift and LipoLift, which use noninvasive and minimally invasive techniques, respectively, to smooth fine lines and banish excess fat. To add to his repertoire, Dr. Darm added a third trademarked treatment: MiniLift. His accomplishments have led to invitations from aesthetic medical professionals around the world—including a 14-day trip to China to speak about his treatments at conferences in several cities.
The LaserLift procedure reverses damage caused by exposure to the sun, free radicals, and gravity malfunctions by regenerating collagen and tightening the skin with laser wavelengths. LipoLift destroys fat with a laser that melts fat cells through a small incision and allows them to be removed more gently than with traditional liposuction. The MiniLift is performed only by a board-certified plastic surgeon and is available only at Aesthetic Medicine. At the Lake Oswego location, which boasts more than 14,000 square feet, Dr. Darm helps patients feel beautiful in other ways, including combating spider veins with laser therapy or sclerotherapy and keeping wrinkles at bay with injectable fillers. The center's weight-loss program helps patients shed pounds under the guidance of medical specialists and dieticians.
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.
Licensed Massage Therapist Antoinette Lopes sees massage as a way to remind the body, mind, and spirit to relax and let go of any anxieties. During a typical massage, she uses long flowing strokes and gradually moves deeper, depending on the individual's preference. She may also employ reiki techniques along the body's meridians to restore free flow of energy channels. When not untying tight muscular knots, Antoinette enjoys other hobbies such as painting, drawing, and dancing on the shoulders of over-stressed giants.
Long before Tammy McGill became a licensed massage therapist, she kept herself busy kneading her parents' and family friends' knotted muscles. That innate talent led her to massage school, and she now relieves muscle tension on a daily basis.
