Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat and his highly trained and experienced Botox injection technicians smoothes brows, de-furrows frown lines, and scatters crow’s feet with Botox injections. After an informative, free consultation, patients recline in a chair or bed as the doctor determines where to place the injections and which eyebrow can best pull off highlights. No anesthesia is required during the 10-minute procedure, but clients can request a cold pack to numb soon-to-be-smoothed faces before the practitioner injects tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into facial furrows. Within as little as a few days, the solution eases stubborn wrinkles' grasp on foreheads and brow lines, diminishing their appearance and late-night dance parties for up to four months. Clients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
For 10 years, Dawn Thompson worked beside top dermatologists and plastic surgeons as a surgical assistant. Armed with that experience and her education as an aesthetician, Dawn takes an all-encompassing approach to skincare at Island Skin and Laser, a recipient of a 2012 Seattle Award. Her firsthand experience helps her to personalize treatments to each client using medical-grade skincare products by lines such as SkinCeuticals, SkinMedica, Obagi, and Revaléskin, none of which contain perfumes or dyes. The aesthetician tackles common skincare issues with treatments ranging from traditional facials to advanced hydrafacials, erbium facials, and photofacials. As a laser pro, Dawn can also shine a light to banish unwanted hairs and bats that are bothering bodies.
Lotus Laser & Spa?s professional team offers noninvasive spa and med-spa services focused on anti-aging. For example, to hydrate and regenerate skin, patients can choose the traditional cleansing and exfoliation of the Lotus Silk facial or the more advanced light of an IPL photofacial. Both treatments, as well as the spa?s Botox injections, laser hair-removal sessions, and chemical peels, are performed under the medical direction of Dr. Lawrence Gogenola, a board-certified dermatologist with more than 20 years of experience.
Registered nurse and clinic-owner Gayle Williamson has been a specialist in cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery since 1974, but at Bellevue Image Enhancement Center, she subtly enhances clients' looks through noninvasive treatments. Her facial procedures range from the Parisian Peel, a retexturing peel with virtually no downtime, to the HydraFacial, which relies on a machine to remove dead skin cells while simultaneously infusing the skin with serums. Her facials rely on high-quality Dermalogica and Glytone products.
Gayle also offers the Epi-Lift, which boosts collagen production with intense pulsed light, and Epi-Light hair removal, which uses a similar process to permanently reduce unwanted hair on legs, chests, and wings.
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.
Helmed by Philip Young, MD, the team at Aesthetic Facial specializes in surgical procedures and cosmetic care with a special emphasis on facial features. The microdermabrasion treatment freshens facades by gently sandblasting away dead skin cells with a stream of tiny crystals and by sucking up fallen-enemy cells with a vacuum. In less than 30 minutes, sun-damaged and aging layers of skin will be a distant memory, and fine lines and scars from acne, burns, and trauma will be noticeably diminished. Since there's no downtime for the skin to recover, most patients can immediately apply sunscreen or makeup to newly exfoliated skin that's brighter, tighter, and smoother, allowing you to infiltrate your workplace unnoticed and raid the donuts as coworkers blame it all on a youthful, vivacious intruder.
