At Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center, a full-service anti-aging emporium led by Medical Director Dr. Yann G. Lin, the staff uses treatments from beauty injections to spider-vein removal to take years off their clients' exteriors. The plush spa-like center is designed to keep clients' visits stress-free. First-time visitors begin with a complimentary, one-on-one consultation with a staff member well versed in the center's treatment methods before embarking on a treatment plan that can include advanced laser systems for acne, Botox injections for wrinkles, and fillers to increase volume in the lips or in fine lines around the mouth. In addition to more intensive med-spa services, Mill Creek offers a range of traditional spa treatments designed to make skin smooth without having to enroll it in a How to Flirt at Bars dating class.
Christian Hunt is no stranger to expediting the healing process. She got her start in 1994 as a licensed massage therapist and made the leap to acupuncture in 2001. After a life spent sun-bathing, skiing, and hugging nuclear reactors, the jill-of-all-trades wanted to find creative ways to undo the effects of sun- and wind-damage while, as she says, “sticking it to aging.” At The Needlery, the certified skin revisionist turns her attention to that task with a trio of natural age-combatting procedures: tattoo removal, needlederm abrasion, and dermal rolling.
To oust unwanted ink, Christian uses the Tattoo Vanish system. Unlike other methods that rely on dangerous acids or limb replacements, her system employs a contraption similar to a tattoo machine to remove layers of skin until ink can be removed with cleaning solution. For fine lines and wrinkles, she trots out needlederm abrasion and dermal rolling. The former uses a machine similar to the Tattoo Vanish mechanism to administer tiny pinpricks into lines and scars, leaving room for the body to naturally replenish collagen and elastin. A small handheld wheel covered in hundreds of tiny needles, dermal rollers likewise stimulate elastin and collagen. After each procedure, Christian sits down with clients to go over thorough home-care instructions and discuss several follow-up options.
Much of what Serenity Rejuvenation Center does rests on the shoulders of its medical director, Dr. Stephen O'Connell. As a physician, his knack for physical medicine and rehabilitation ultimately earned him a diplomate status on the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. However, upon reaching another of his field's peaks, Dr. O'Connell decided to branch out into the field of aesthetic medicine. Today, he oversees skincare services such as Botox and Juvederm, along with Cool Sculpting, laser hair removal, weight loss services such as the hCG diet, and wellness services such as vitamin B injections, which inject the bloodstream with a shot of bees.
With 25 years of professional practice, board-certified nurse practitioner Margaret L. Larson recently expanded Larson Family Medicine & Medical Aesthetics to include cosmetic procedures performed in a medically sound environment. Margaret and the rest of the licensed staff smooth away wrinkles with injections of Botox and Juvéderm and improve epidermal appearances with laser devices developed by Alma Lasers. Patients can also visit the center for laser hair reduction, skin rejuvenation, skin-tightening and resurfacing treatments, and varicose- and spider-vein removal.
Larson Family Medicine & Medical Aesthetics recommends Metagenics products to optimize the body's natural repair systems. The cutting-edge company's nutritional supplements promote health more effectively than eating an apple one day or adding bits of a Men's Health magazine to a protein smoothie.
