To Imago Plastic Surgery's Dr. Aaron Mason, it doesn't matter if your last birthday cake had fewer candles than you have fingers or enough to light up a small auditorium; either way, you deserve to feel confident in your appearance. That's why the 18-year medical veteran specializes in both adult cosmetic and pediatric craniofacial surgeries. Not that surgery is always the answer; clients also visit the center to undergo less-invasive treatments, ranging from skin-rejuvenating facials to wrinkle-smoothing Botox cosmetic injections. Along with being a seasoned plastic surgeon, Dr. Mason is also an author, lecturer, researcher, and human being.
Vera Auvil's passion in life has always been cultivating knick-knacks and odds-and-ends—her "sweet nothings," as her husband used to say—so when the opportunity to purchase her own store came her way, she knew she wanted to fill its shelves and aisles with her favorite little things: clothes, jewelry, home décor, and makeup. She christened the shop Auvil's Sweet Nothings and set to work cultivating local artisans and national vendors who proffer goods such as De Novo, Waterford crystal, and Yellow Box Shoes. The skilled staffers at her vendor-based store can even help clients brighten smiles with Beaming White teeth-whitening services, make-over mugs with Jane Iredale cosmetics, and learn to cheat during shopping-cart races.

Microdermabrasion and microcurrent therapy combat fine lines or skin laxity, and Aveda's enzyme- and nutrient-rich products add curative benefits to aromatherapy massages and reflexology sessions.
