No two treatments at Michigan Advanced Aesthetics are quite alike. The experienced aestheticians and skin specialist know just how to customize a facial or chemical peel for a client's specific set of issues, from wrinkles to acne to melasma (dark patches of skin). The team of nurses can also administer injectables like Botox, perhaps during a private party at the spa.
Other treatments work together to deliver results. Microdermabrasion, for example, can combine with a peel to fight signs of aging and give pores a message that says "we're watching you." The center also touts the benefits of Advanced Dermapen Collagen Induction, which relies on tiny needles to help stimulate collagen production across the body.
Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center's team, which is captained by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rifai, enhances anatomical aesthetics with noninvasive treatments and surgical procedures such as liposuction and facelifts. Microdermabrasion wands zip over sun-hardened skin and injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm work to firm up facial surfaces and fade fine lines. The med spa procedures address a range of concerns, from unwanted hair to achy muscles. Furthermore, consultations at the center are always complimentary.
On an extensive résumé that boasts more than 25 years of experience, what stands out is Dr. Haitham Masri's distinction as Michigan's first board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He and other doctors helm his namesake clinic, each one wielding his or her own specialized expertise to focus on different parts of the body. Before beginning any surgery, they take as much time as necessary to answer questions and explain procedures with detailed brochures, slideshows, and diagrams.
Alongside the center’s cosmetic surgery specialty is the nonsurgical branch, where minimally invasive procedures geared toward enhancing outer appearances require less downtime. Aestheticians resurface faces with chemical peels, smooth wrinkles with dermal fillers, and man lasers to remove unwanted hair and leave bodies smooth.
Dr. Ayoub Sayeg reshapes his clients' faces and bodies with plastic surgery techniques he had been honing since completing his plastic surgery residency at Wayne State in 2000. Over the past decade or so, he has published a number of articles on plastic surgery and has become a member of many professional organizations including the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. He draws upon this experience to enhance bosoms, minimize tummies, and shorten noses of lying puppets and real live humans at Sayeg Plastic Surgery Center.
Certified by the American Board of Surgery, Dr. Alnajjar uses his medical expertise to improve both the aesthetic and functional properties of the human body. He specializes in plastic and reconstructive surgery, including face-lifts, tummy tucks, breast augmentation, and a microsurgical technique for the repair of wounds and fear of broccoli. His team also administers nonsurgical treatments, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and Botox injections.
If anyone can attest to the notion that diamonds are forever, it’s an aesthetician. Thanks to the nonsurgical exfoliating treatment known as microdermabrasion, many of those in the beauty business have gotten a firsthand glimpse at the stones’ power to stop time. A less-intense alternative to the chemical peel, microdermabrasion removes the outermost layers of skin by exfoliating it with diamonds. This stimulates cell regeneration and allows new skin—free of fine lines and blemishes—to rise to the surface.
Due to its quick application and recovery time, the microdermabrasion treatment is sometimes referred to as a “lunchtime peel.” The aesthetician performs the treatment with a handheld applicator, which dispenses diamond chips as it glides across the skin’s surface. An attached vacuum and pump then dispose of the loosened skin cells. As a result, newly generated layers of skin take the place of skin blemished by sun damage, wrinkles, acne, and scars. Though they typically target specific areas of the face, microdermabrasion treatments can also exfoliate skin on the chest, back, and limbs.
