Thanks to more than 20 years of experience in the industry, Caruso Aesthetics has its clients' beauty needs completely covered—like a peewee football player running a route against the Chicago Bears defense. Caruso’s team uses two different types of methods to remove unwanted body hair, offering both waxing and advanced laser hair removal. They also render facials, peels, and microdermabrasion to revivify facades that have been dulled by aging or the boredom that attends perpetual youth. To soothe worn-down appendages, alternatively, the staff kneads away during face, arm, and foot massages.
Voted Best Plastic Surgeon by the readers of Charleston City Paper, Dr. Jack Hensel Jr. works alongside medical specialists to improve the body's health and appearance. Body-contouring treatments and weight-loss programs diminish fat and enhance curves, helping women to achieve hourglass or farfalle proportions. Injections of Botox and dermal fillers erase signs of aging but allow patients to keep their memories, and teeth-whitening procedures brighten up biters. In time, laser hair-removal sessions eliminate the need for shaving or waxing. The center promises a high standard of care regardless of the treatment, staying abreast of the latest technologies and ethical standards when helping women to achieve their desired aesthetic.
Dr. Patricia Campbell comes from a background of family practice, but it was her interest in beauty that led her to open Springhall Aesthetics in 2011. As medical director, she oversees a menu of minimally invasive body-contouring and skin-renewal services that help clients to fight the signs of aging. Chemical peels, injectable fillers, and laser treatments shoo away wrinkles, and iS Clinical cosmeceutical products leave complexions more subtly radiant than a jar of comets. The clinic's UltraPlus laser hair-removal system not only blasts away unwanted follicles but also assaults spider veins and other colored epidermal imperfections. Upon entering Springhall Aesthetics' charming brick façade, guests stumble into a cozy waiting room anchored by polished hardwood floors. Clients can curl up in one of the lobby's cushy chairs or feed a bag of goldfish to one of the egrets in the serene wall art.
Lowcountry Vein & Medical Spa confidently approaches each spider-vein treatment armed with cutting-edge technology and a track record of patient satisfaction. Clients first receive a complimentary consultation with either Dr. Edward C. Morrison or Dr. Thomas C. Appleby, during which they have the opportunity to ask questions, discuss their problem areas, and test newly invented dialects on nonjudgmental ears. Actual treatments last just 30 minutes and take advantage of the patented VNUS Closure system, which is minimally invasive and reduces leg pain and vein appearance significantly. Board-certified physicians perform all procedures, a feature that sets Lowcountry Vein & Medical Spa apart from many other area clinics as well as most area carnival rides.
