At the time Doctor Rotskoff graduated from Washington University, he was one of only 30 doctors in the country to hold dual degrees in medicine and dentistry. He went on to combine his specialty in oral maxillofacial surgery with his expertise in cosmetic surgery, and is considered an authority on facial reconstruction in addition to body contouring and laser skin rejuvenation. When he isn't lecturing to national and international audiences or authoring chapters for leading medical journals, Dr. Rotskoff joins Dr. Timothy Gillum, a board-certified surgeon specializing in both head and neck surgery and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Together, they oversee a staff of laser technicians who help patients discover less-invasive ways to turn back the clock. Wielding Syneron laser technology, they usher unwanted stubble off the body's map and help erase signs of aging with microdermabrasion, photofacial treatments, and ReFirme skin tightening. Renew Cosmetic Spa offers complimentary consultations to all prospective patients, encouraging them to visit the center, learn about the treatments from a specialist, and claim a favorite chair in the waiting room.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning Center's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don?t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan?s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
Named the city’s best portrait-photography studio by CityVoter in 2010, The Studio—a full-service portrait studio—maintains a separate department dedicated to boudoir photography. The studio’s three female photographers have worked together for more than a decade, helming tasteful yet sensual shoots for women of all ages and body types. Subjects can pose in outfits ranging from delicate lingerie sets to corsets, nighties, or artfully draped men’s shirts; licensed makeup artists and hairstylists finish off looks with custom touches that range from a natural, girl-next-door vibe to a dramatic, girl-from-Valley of the Dolls look. For outfit changes, subjects can return to the studio’s private dressing room, and after shoots have concluded, they can sift through their finished images in a separate viewing area.
