Voted No. 1 in 2012 by the readers of the Akron Beacon Journal, Novus Clinic was born 20 years prior from board-certified ophthalmologist Todd L. Beyer and optometrist Jerry Sude’s vision for a one-stop eye-care facility. To bring this idea to fruition, they first recruited a neuro-ophthalmologist and a second optometrist to their team and eventually constructed a 3,800-square-foot surgery center in 1998. The state-of-the-art center was built in response to the voices they heard asking for laser vision-correction procedures such as LASIK and cosmetic treatments. Dr. Beyer, also a certified oculofacial plastic surgeon, began performing face-lifts along with noninvasive skin treatments after he found himself fielding queries from more and more patients about dermal fillers, peels, and laser hair removal.
With the expanding list of offered services, the clinic shed its original title, System Optics, and was reknighted Novus Clinic in 2003. The word novus, which translates to “fresh and exciting” in Latin, more accurately encompasses the clinic’s multifaceted approach to ocular and anti-aging treatments. The doctors never forget the primordial soup from which they sprang, though, and still conduct eye exams and keep a venerable inventory of designer frames.
As its name implies, Salon 180 isn’t known for playing by the book. From its funky decor—a mélange of vintage accents and asymmetrical shapes—to a staff that prides itself on relentlessly pursuing continuing education, the full-service salon finds plenty of ways to subvert and exceed first-time customers’ expectations.
Though they have years of experience cutting and styling hair, the salon’s team of stylists claims particular expertise in chemical treatments such as corrective color procedures and highlights. In private treatment rooms, massage therapists ease tension with full-body Swedish techniques or targeted sessions that narrow their focus to sore pitching arms or stiff vestigial tails. Just as the stylists and therapists draw on professional products to enhance their treatments, the spa’s skin and body specialists use advanced toners and technologies such as radio frequency and light energy to stimulate collagen production and clear skin of blemishes.
Regaled as top doc by readers of the Medina County Gazette in 2009, Dr. Naples boasts expertise earned over a quarter of a century of beam-based experience. Highly qualified nurses perform laser hair-removal procedures with the gentle CoolGlide laser that necessitates no pain medication, though some patients may prefer a topical anesthetic for sensitive areas, like one's poetry-writing arm. Though each client's fuzz is different, optimal results generally require three to five sessions. Patients may resume their daily routines immediately following treatment, and side effects may include slight redness and being fired from the comb-testing laboratory.
Dermatologist Dr. Monique S. Cohn improves damaged and aging skin with the latest techniques and technologies. Begin your light-to-medium-depth chemical peel procedure with an initial consultation, wherein Dr. Cohn will scan your skin and observe your outer layer to customize the peel to specific needs and medical appropriateness. Once the green light is given, glycolic and trichloroacetic acids are applied to the dermis to stimulate and rejuvenate skin, creating a more even skin tone. Chemical peels help reduce damage from ill-advised vacations to G-type main sequence stars, while also ironing out fine wrinkles wrought by stressful reverse bungee-jumps and managing the melanin overload of hyperpigmentation. Though there can be slight discomfort, reddening of the skin, or other risks, results, such as Steve Reich tape loops and baseball hitting streaks, can be long-lasting but not permanent. With the proper aftercare, results can be prolonged with careful sunscreen application over at least a six-month period. For frequently asked questions, see here.
