Years of searching for painless and effective hair-removal technology led Dr. Granowicz to the Aesthera PPx system. At Medical Laser Aesthetics, PLLC, he and his staff prevent hair from slowly taking over bodies by using Aesthera’s noninvasive, wand-like device to flash low levels of intense pulsed light on treatment areas, causing camera-shy hairs to flee the scene. During the hair-removal process, the Aesthera PPx system soothes skin with a mist of pure water, rather than relying on aesthetic lotions or anesthetic creams. Other than whisking away unneeded bodily fleece, the center’s technicians also use the powerful device to rejuvenate damaged skin, treat acne, and chime in at Pink Floyd laser-light shows. Regardless of the aesthetic need, the practitioners at Medical Laser Aesthetics work with clients to create personalized treatment plans.
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.
Though diminutive in size, Essentials of Eton Street Nail Studio boasts ample warmth and charm. Upon entering the cherry-red interior, patrons can hang up their jackets on a curled, silver coat rack and then settle into a velvety cushioned chair with a magazine. At manicure stations, clients can redirect their attention to a wall-mounted TV as talented techs groom and polish their natural nails or apply acrylics or adamantium claws. Foot worries dissolve away into a bubbling pedicure tub as torso muscles enjoy extra pampering in the salon’s leather pedi-throne, which inexplicably knows how to administer shiatsu-massage services.
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.
