Madelaine Izquierdo, a board-certified physician's assistant, gently smoothes faces with Botox Cosmetic injections. After a complimentary consultation and skin analysis, Madelaine carefully injects Botox protein into forehead lines, pleats between eyes, or ruts created by adventuresome eyebrows' off-road vehicles. The treatment works to stop the subdermal muscle contractions that crinkle skin, smoothing the selected area for up to four months. The process creates minimal discomfort, with patients back on their feet in no time. Botox can also help prevent excessive sweating when injected into problematic areas such as armpits or a middle-school gym class.
At Elite Aesthetics—the aesthetics division of Astar Medical Group—physicians use the cutting-edge Vectra 3-D imaging system to capture pictures of potential cosmetic-surgery candidates. The system then creates a visual prediction of what faces and bodies will look like after surgery and what those renovated parts would look while doing the Macarena. The six staff aestheticians further the office's anti-aging efforts by providing skincare services such as chemical peels and laser treatments that resurface skin, foil spider veins, or remove hair.
Guided by aesthetic intuition, the technicians at Touch of Life Med Spa use scientifically refined procedures to improve their clients' skin texture and tone. A Candela laser system bombards dermal blemishes with controlled pulses of laser light energy, helping to hide the appearance of stubble, spider veins, or acne scars. Additionally, the center's chemical peels and facials can leave countenances looking as youthful and as hydrated as an ice sculpture of Dorian Gray.
The doctors at Pascual MD have a comprehensive approach to each treatment they provide, whether clients seek cosmetic surgery, medical weight-loss supervision, or classic skincare services. They also equip their office with delicate lasers capable of softening wrinkles, ousting unwanted hair, and drawing old-timey mustaches on hamburger buns.
Premier Dental Associates, which employs a team of dedicated dentists, oral surgeons, and periodontists, has earned recognition on the The Montel Williams Show during a full-fledged mouth makeover. A cleaning, exam, and x-ray packs more of a healthful wallop than a bucket of free-range, grass-fed mung-bean sprouts, especially if your idea of a daily brushing is a mouthful of sand and a hot hose of water from a super soaker. An at-home Zoom! teeth-whitening system lightens mouth-bones with the help of a custom tray, patent-pending white gel, and strict order to not eat paint. Sport the trays for one hour twice a day, and teeth will gleam whiter after about a week.
Drs. Barry Concool and Marc Bosem helm the Correctvision Laser Institute and have performed more than 40,000 LASIK procedures combined. And though he is eager to help their patients cast off their glasses, contacts, and opera lorgnettes with LASIK, that's not all they do.
Teaming up with Dr. Michelle Gonzalez—the institute's Spanish-speaking clinical director and optometrist—they offer a wide range of corrective-vision procedures, such as cataract surgery and conductive keratoplasty, which uses radio frequency instead of lasers to improve farsightedness. They even smooth over wrinkles with Botox, dermal fillers, and spackling paste.
