Dr. Barbara Persons, a board-certified plastic surgeon, pares her experience as a surgeon with an artistic vision in all of her procedures. Her areas of specialty include both aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery, body contouring, facial rejuvenation, and helping new mothers to get back to 'pre-baby' weight.
In addition to removing tattoos, Professional Medical Corp's experienced doctors harness the photon-borne powers of the PinPointe FootLaser to painlessly and effectively whisk fungi from patients' nails. Additionally, the team helps clients safely and effectively manage foot pain through MLS laser therapy. Such therapies can treat pain associated with plantar faciitis, neuromas, arthritis, joint pain, sore muscles, post surgical swelling, and more.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert A. Harvey relaxes facial creases with FDA-approved treatments. While patients rest, the steady-handed doctor injects Botox or Dysport into the wrinkle-plagued area with a tiny needle, smoothing away flaws for 3–6 months with all the ease and grace of a pirouetting Zamboni. The injections treat crow's feet, ease furrowed brows, and can prevent future facial fault-lines from forming. For most patients, the procedures require no downtime, so they can return to their daily lives without further ado.
Dr. Jeffrey DeWeese wanted to be a physician when he was just 12 years old, but it wasn't until an emergency-room rotation that he decided to be a plastic surgeon. After watching a colleague reconstruct a young girl's injured face, Dr. DeWeese resolved to dedicate himself to a specialty that combines artistic vision with technical proficiency to improve patients? quality of life. Now with board certification and more than 17 years of surgical experience, he still relies on this combination of skills, spending ample time with patients beforehand and working with them to select an appropriate treatment regimen.
Surgical procedures comprise a healthy portion of the center's services, but the staff also bolsters confidence, tones and shapes silhouettes, and counteracts aging with less invasive alternatives. Custom facial treatments, for instance, incorporate everything from anti-inflammatory enzymes that conceal signs of acne to soothing masks that leave skin as hydrated as a sponge in a bucket of Gatorade. Microdermabrasion sessions and dermal fillers improve skin tone, whereas a therapeutic massage combines Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressure, and reflexology techniques to address individual aches.
Dr. Michael R. Macdonald has surgical treatments in his blood. His earliest inspiration came from his father, who worked as a pediatric head and neck surgeon in their native Toronto. That influence stuck: the young Macdonald took up the family stethoscope by studying surgery at the University of Toronto, even training under his father for a portion of his first residency. He continued his education at the University of California, San Francisco, and, enamored of the city, decided to stay to open his practice.
Today, Dr. Macdonald provides both cosmetic and reconstructive treatments from the comfort of his clinic. In addition to performing plastic-surgery treatments, he leads a team of skincare specialists who tend to clients with facials and advanced laser treatments. Dr. Macdonald also extends his beautifying mission beyond the practice?s walls, contributing his time and talents to a number of charitable organizations.
