The doctors at Great Lakes Dermatology help patients look their best with a full range of medical and cosmetic treatments. They address everything from psoriasis and malevolent moles to wrinkles and leg veins. Botox injections tame wrinkle muscles for months on end, and laser treatments zap sun spots, pigmented blemishes, and fencing scars.
LaVita Laser's founder and practiced aesthetic nurse Erin K. Lehto recaptures skin's youthful allure with vivifying photofacial treatments. The 20- to 30-minute noninvasive procedure helps drastically fade the appearance of age spots, broken capillaries, and acne by shining concentrated light pulses along epidermal slates. LaVita's skin specialists describe the photofacial's relatively painless zaps as feeling similar to the snap of a rubber band or the smooch of a besotted hummingbird. After the treatment, visitors emerge sporting smoother skin tone and texture, prompting an increase in phone calls from admiring suitors and physicists demanding time-machine blueprints.
Dr. Rita Sabeti opened her clinic to smooth the skin's flaws and boost clients' confidence with minimally invasive, medical-grade cosmetic treatments. Experienced aestheticians wield the handheld Candela GentleMax laser, whose multiple wavelengths target a variety of skin issues while a built-in cooling mist keeps patients comfortable and office plants hydrated. Weight-loss experts help clients to leave behind extra pounds with advanced hormone therapies.
Chemical peels relieve visages from the effects of acne, fine lines, dryness, rosacea and more ($70 per peel), and microdermabrasion utilizes a crystal-free diamond-tipped wand to tenderly exfoliate old epidermal cells, revealing a fresh, healthy layer of skin ($75). Acupuncture has been shown to be capable of aiding the healing process for a variety of ailments, gently tapping into the body's energy channels with extremely fine needles (60-minute session including consultation, $75). Customized to meet your skin's individual needs, an organic facial uses fresh banana, blueberry, or pumpkin to bring out a glowing complexion ($70 for 60 minutes), and a para-medical facial uses powerful ingredients that can only be obtained through a physician, as well as treating you to a face, neck, and scalp massage ($70 for 60 minutes).
Plastic surgeon Dr. Tracy McCall uses her healing hands to heal at Lake Country Plastic and Hand Surgery. She performs procedures that ease the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and Dupuytren's contracture.
Though hands are the center's specialty, the skilled staff also perform other aesthetic and plastic-surgery services, such as skin-rejuvenation treatments performed by experienced aesthetician Cari Carsen. Whether filling fine lines with Botox, Juvéderm, or Artefill or healing skin with customized facials, Cari helps each client create a custom skincare regimen to address his or her beauty concerns. When creating these regimens, she takes the time to consider clients' budgets, lifestyle habits, time constraints, and preferred utensils with which to smear cream on their faces.
