This is an energetically based, sacred healing space," says Dr. Laura Skellchock, describing the aura of Integrative Dermatology. "That's what I wanted to create– and you can feel it when you come in." Dr. Skellchock combines the methods of general dermatology and cosmetic dermatology at this serene boutique clinic, relying on more than 20 years of skin expertise as she combats everything from acne, to wrinkles, to stuck-on Halloween masks.

Board-certified hair-restoration physician Dr. Alan J. Bauman halts the steady retreat of hairlines and regrows dormant headfuzz with 30-minute noninvasive laser treatments. Each low-level laser session peppers the head with gentle beams of phototherapy intended to boost circulation, cell growth, and the self-esteem that helps hair grow up strong and hardy. The FDA-approved devices penetrate the deepest layers of the skin, aiming to reduce further hair loss. Since the therapy operates without the use of thermal damage, it aims to boost the growth of hair with no discomfort, unlike applying caustic fertilizers to the scalp.
Working with state-of-the-art equipment and a wide range of non-invasive therapies, Dr. Man and his highly trained staff harvest aches, pains, and injuries from weary folds of flesh. During the thermal massage-bed treatment, heated vibrations gently shake battered bodies, increasing blood circulation, sweeping out toxins, and speeding up the body’s chi. Blasts of pressurized oxygen define the hyperbaric oxygen-therapy session, in which high air pressure enables lungs to draw in greater amounts of oxygen. Although oxygen isn’t absolutely necessary for life, this extra shot of O2 is definitely beneficial—when circulated through the blood and cerebral-spinal fluids, it promotes healing and extends the time patients can hold their breath while relieving fountains of their change.
Liv Plastic Surgery by Dr. Ress enhances its patients' natural radiance by performing a variety of both surgical and noninvasive procedures. Dr. Andrew Ress?a physician with board certification in general as well as plastic surgery?continues to embrace the most advanced improvements in cosmetic care as he refines the techniques he uses to perform facelifts, liposuction, tummy tucks, and other services. However, the practice's noninvasive treatments are also capable of generating dramatic changes. Cosmetic laser systems can zap unwanted stubble, eliminate spider veins, or even minimize the appearance of acne scars, sun spots, wrinkles. Microdermabrasion treatments and exfoliating chemical peels help even out skin tone by buffing away dead skin and dried cake frosting from the face, and medically-designed weight-loss programs can help patients achieve the figure they want over time.
